Nexus Wars is played on a very simple map that can be broken up in to four main sections that are mirrored top and
Upper Platform[edit | edit source]
This is where your nexus resides. Upper Platform is where you build all your units. Build your ground units towards the back of the map in horizontal rows, not vertical columns.
Leave at least one tile of space between your buildings so your units won't get stuck. Build your air units however you want.
If you need to cannon, cannon on the upper platform.
Lower Platform[edit | edit source]
Do not build on the lower platform. Do not cannon on the lower platform. Do not build air on the lower platform.
Fight with you SCV's on the lower platform. Repair your injured units on the lower platform.
Your worker can not travel beyond the lower platform.
Nuke the area below the lower platform at the choke.
The Lanes[edit | edit source]
This is where the large battles take place. Units spawn and travel across the map in their corresponding lane.
Enemy Territory[edit | edit source]
This is a mirror image of your Upper and Lower platform -- controlled by your enemy.
