All the players start in the wasteland at the bottom of the map where the resources are low. They will need to cooperate to get to the top part as quickly as possible where the resources are plentiful. The starting bottom part is limited in resources while the top part is overflowing in resources. A thick layer of hostile anti air turrets defend the access to the top part.
There are destructible rocks blocking every rich golden bases to prevent Terran players from floating their starting base directly on a rich expansion.
