what is the dust2 of strategy games? The maps that are just so well designed (or simple and balanced) that everyone will just start playing those maps and no others? For generals its definitely this one.

fighting spirit is "fixed" lost temple

i'll give you LT for vanilla WC3 though
>>
>>513653
Based tournament desert. It may be quite repetitive to keep playing this map over and over but it is the nearest thing we have as a fair and balanced map.

>>513671
>blood river/meeting of minds
yup
>mortalis
yeah, add alvarus too
>into the breach
that map is in no way balanced, its downright awful because it castrates the earlygame unless we count turret rushes
>>
>>513847
LT was broken in a couple of ways. Namely every natural expansion having cliffs for Terran to dropship tanks on but also some spawn positions were better than others. There were a few iterations on it before they got to Fighting Spirit.

been a while since I've played, don't remember much in terms of map names, so I put this one in because of memories of modded sp/co-op vs ai experience

Respectable but I will counter with the OG that is Semois.

Seton's Clutch. I saw this map in several places.

1v1 Tiny Arabia

>>513862
Spent so much time on this map. Good memories

It wasn't balanced, but it was what the majority of people played for almost a decade.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

>>513653
Probably Lost Temple for Starcraft 1 and maybe WC3's version. I don't think that map ever left the rotation for either until the advent of third parties designing their own maps for their own tournaments.
>>
>>513653
Arabia in AoE2
Jotunheim in AoM
>>
>>513653
i'd say big game hunters.

fallen empire is my favorite generals map
