Hello Hello Hello.
Another special map pack is upon us. This setup is essentially made for a 4v4 setup with two players being extremely forward and upfront with their enemy, while the other two players star further back with different roles depending on the map.

As with most of these special map packs, it is recommended that you play the maps with 8 players on a large map size.
I hope you will enjoy the maps!

Evaporation
Evaporation is a map set in a dried out lake in the middle east. There is still some water left with the remaining fish to be captured and eaten. Besides the lake, lions roam the desert.
Resources are fairly standard.

Pagoda
Pagoda is a map set in East Asia. The players spawning in the middle will have to fight for the huge amounts of shore fish, while the outside players can choose to help, or simply boom securely behind their walls.

Riverside
Riverside is a bit more special. A river runs right through the middle of the map separating both teams from their allies. This results in 2 players of each team facing off against each other. The only way to aid your allies is by crossing the huge river. Controlling the water is also very useful for controlling and attacking the players near the middle.

Sundarbans
Sundarbans is set in South-East Asia right in the middle of a hill in the mangroves. Two players from each team start on the hill, while the two other players will have to fight for the water. Resources are different depending on your spawn location.

Treed
Treed is set deep in the Americas jungle. The four outside players are completely separated by a thick forest, which they will have to cut through in order to reach their allies in the middle. The outside players have a huge amount of resources and time to boom up, while the players in the middle will be almost certain to have action right from the get-go.

Tropical
Tropical is a map set in Africa. Similar in design to my other map Thicket or the official map Hideout, though without the walls. Do you go straight for the enemy on land or will you try to utilise to water to your advantage?
Resources are standard.​

@Chrazini these maps are so awesome. I wish there was a larger part of the community willing to play these. Given the proper playtesting, I'm sure there's maps out there that play better and could join/replace your typical arabia, arena, and BF.

This is off topic, and highly unlikely, but it would be so sick if AoE2: DE had a matchmaking system with a ladder map pool that changed every season, similar to sc2

Seriously, Chrazini makes some of the best maps in the community, it's pretty sad that everyone's too busy with the same four or five maps to try them out sometimes.
I'd love to see a tournament or a 4v4 show match on these maps :smile:
Thank you so much, guys! Because my maps sometimes goes a little under the radar, these few appreciative comments mean a lot to me!
These special maps are very experimental, so it would be amazing to see them played and perhaps adjusted properly. I create the maps because I sincerely enjoy it.
