Official Description Edit
With almost no water and little vegetation, there is very little reason to come to the Fields. However, it does possess abundant Mass , which makes it a natural place for Commanders to fight.
When playing 1v1 on Fields of Isis, a rush to build many mass extractors, along with a quick hydrocarbon plant, can facilitate the early game strategy. Destroying an opponent's outlying mass extractors can slow or even cripple his economy, giving the attacker a great advantage. By keeping an opponent confined to his side of the map, you can tech up faster and build artillery installations within range of his base. That may be all it takes to win, but continuing to tech up to Tech 3 land factories and making siege bots can usually break through any defenses he may have put up. If the momentum of a large attacking force can be sustained, the attacker can get away with building few, if any, defenses. As with most maps, even light air defense (in the form of a few interceptors or anti-air) is critical to avoid being raided by bombers or gunships. Amassing T1 Bombers can also work to great advantage. In large groups, these bombers are surprisingly effective, and can be deployed to eliminate mass extractors.
In 2v2, teams gain a huge advantage when they are able to secure both choke-points lying in the middle of the map. Often, opposing teams can clash forces or even ACUs at these crucial strategic points. Once both points are secured by a team, they can slowly inch their way forwards using shields and point-defense. However, if an opponent is able to break through one of the choke points, the other point will likely be vulnerable.
This map has a generous rush bubble when activated, and it gives each player full control over their starting box. It includes 8 mass deposits and 1 hydrocarbon point.
