  1. tested v5, hard = yes,
    impossible? = no
    time consuming – Absolutely!
    This map requires you master the shuffle and hope one of the racers don’t grab one of your cores and leave before you notice, I was able to beat it on normal but took many tires before i could complete it with out loosing a core, although i let many aliens escape so my score was lackluster and my funds quite low, i ended up with 6 red temporals and 8 red cannons at the end to finish this off.

    1. You beat it at normal??? I dont beat it at easy, so unless there was an update recently, congratulations! I dont think i am a bad player but seriously, i will try again but it was impossible for me.

    2. Nah, i tried again, easy, version 6, you must be the best player on earth because i cant do it… I have no idea how the hell you do this????? Still a good map but definitively need some change, need the same cash than the Collesum (or something like that) have. This way, it would be more pleasant but i must admit now, i have no more fun playing this map…

    3. the “love from above” was meant to help balance.. it’s a big one-time orbital laser for 200.. and you’ll still need Cai’s laser as well.

      I have only beaten this on easy, personally..

  2. Yea, like everyone, totally crap map, WAY too hard on easy. I play Elite on many map and cant beat that one on easy… There is certainly a way to do it but it is stupid to try to know how to do it on easy. On easy, even doing stupid thing, you can beat any map.

    1. thanks for playing. sounds like the map description is accurate then: “11 of the hardest waves you’ve ever encountered”

      ofc you can debate, “why make a map you can’t beat?” etc.. but obviously as the map author, I can make it however I want to. And if I want to make an unbeatable map, then i don’t really see why people should beef over it. for the record, I have beaten it on easy (got silver, not gold though).

      keep in mind, this was the first MP enabled map, first custom events, and first custom wave script on a custom map, and paved the way for more talented map creators to use those features.

      1. For myself, i am not able to make a map, i tried to understand and…… I was very good with starcraft 1 doing map but here, ouch… The fact is than you should change many thing, I see than you can use the ship but you will NEVER be able to pay to use it since you cannot even have enough to be able to do something against the mobs. Change the cash at start with 3000 it should be more playable or enjoyable.

  3. I don’t understand the point of this map even in easy with all the tower boost I cannot beat it.
    The aliens that cut off my towers ruin everything everytime it is impossible to beat. Even with Cai’s lazer, my turrrets are deactivated with those aliens when I destroy them.
    It is not hard, it is impossible.

  4. Crashes for me as soon as I try to build a tower on the Orbiting Sentinels. I can build a Boost, and build a tower on it, but as soon as it starts firing ‘Defence Grid 2 has stopped working’.

      1. That fixed it, nicely done, as the general would say…
        Crashed for me again the first time, so I deleted The Arena subdirectory from My Documents/DG2 folder and replaced with the files from this update.
        Still cannot get past level 6 on Open/Elite, but I’ll keep on trying…

  5. Why make a map that you can no longer beat even on open easy. Custom scripts yes, but if you can’t beat it on easy their is no point playing it at all let alone trying it out on the harder settings. The resources needed to beat this on easy just are not their which is a shame.

    1. thanks for playing.. i am continuing to work on the script..
      i think i have wave 9 do-able and will update the map shortly, but needing to curb 10 a bit and buff 11.
      I do intend to really skate the line of players’ abilities – i think all the stock scripts are too easy.

      1. thanks trash
        i see now my view of strategy is way out of line hope to learn a lot from this
        i tried to build from entries to start expanding to the middle
        love the game

  6. Gold on open elite with 24 cores lost which is ok for this map. The one thing that the does not seem to work for me with the custom script is that the gold doesn’t register for me at all. Anyone else having the same problem.

  7. How much long is the last wave supposed to be? Neverending? I’ve been on it for over 30mins and mob are still spawning. Now it’s really boring, they can’t even go past half my lineup and they just keep coming. I feel kinda trolled :S

    1. proof of concept for custom wave scripts.. I’m doing some tweaking to make a little more playable (moderating the suppressors a bit). But yes, intend to keep it super hard.
