It’s a new season on the SC2 ladder which means we have a bunch of new maps to play on. It’s always useful to check the rush distances of the maps to know when you’re going to get rekt by a 9pool or something. Honestly though, this season has nothing crazy in terms of rush distances. All maps are pretty similar when it comes to rush distances, nothing ridiculously small or ridiculously large. The maps this seasons have more unique architecture then any other season and I’m very interested to see how that comes into play. I played on the new maps all day today and my first impressions are that they’re really enjoyable, every map feels unique yet seem fairly well balanced while bringing new ideas to the table.

Anyway onto the rush distances. All distances were tested with a Drone (2.8125 movement speed.) Lines in the pictures don’t depict the actual path the Drone took since I’m bad at photoshopping and would’ve taken me forever to map it out, so intsead they just show the waypoints with simple blobs and lines.
