Abe and I apparently put ours up at the same time, and I can't figure out how to take this down. This is the same game as the one below it in the que.

Many people have always wondered how an unbalanced map like Lake Shore ended up in existance. Then again looking at Gasbag Forrests, I suppose that we could have expected anything from Cavedog.

Vaxon went through the trouble of making a more balanced version, complete with underwater mexes and more rocks to clean up in the middle. (The map is included in the .zip file). He says he made it for NS (Studies show that smaller maps reduce Nightshade lag by 90%) and NS takes a liking to it by opening the East versus West game with some fast Jeffy action, and he does a good job of tearing up SpikeJ's backyard. After that NS stomps all over his lawn by flash raiding him to next to nothing.

Down south Crater flashes and out-manuevers Vaxon, and to make up for it Vaxon drives his commander up to the middle, and D-guns just about everything while reclaiming rocks for his guardian. Frustrated with the D-gunning, Crater goes for a short stroll and D guns, Vaxon's guard. But before he could get away, Vaxon D-gunned him.

In the meantime Spike has managed to put up a guardian and dragon's teeth line to keep NS off of his lawn. And this is where the game really begins. We have a weakened SpikeJ against a fairly well built up NS. Case closed, right? Nope; turns out to be a pretty good game.
