Redshift is a 1v1 ladder map for StarCraft II, introduced in Season 2, 2018.[1] It was created by NegativeZero for the Team Liquid Map Contest 10.

It will be removed from the ladder pool in Season 3, 2018.[2]

Official Map Description[]

The backdoor gold base poses an interesting problem: not only is it extremely vulnerable to harassment, but mining it out opens a direct attack path straight into the back of your main. Are you willing to take the risk?

Trivia[]

  • The original name for the map was "Backpfeifengesicht," which is roughly translated from German as "face in need of a slap."
  • Redshift is a real-world phenomenon when light or other electromagnetic radiation from an object is increased in wavelength, or shifted to the red end of the spectrum.
  • The map can be considered the counterpart of Blueshift. Not only does this describe the opposite effect of redshift, but both maps are based on space platforms with snow.
