View Full Version : Desert Strike map series

Does anyone else play these maps? If not, then I recommend you all at least try it. It is probably one of the more interesting types of maps.

You basically build buildings to spawn units every wave (each wave is assigned to a different member of your team). For example, a Barracks will get you 5-6 Marines each wave that is assigned to you.

The goal of the game is to destroy the other team's base.

Here are the 3 most popular versions of the map, that I know of..

Desert Strike (normal)

This is the original version of the map.

Desert Strike 2

In this version one player on your team gets to control the units that are spawned.

Desert Strike Half

All buildings have their costs cut in half. This means the game goes by at a faster pace.

These maps are actually quite fun and a nice change from seeing everyone always playing the usual team oriented maps like Spawn Defense and Income Defense. No one even plays Build Tug-O-War anymore sadly. :(

I still play DSQ it a lot of fun. IMHO most fun vs other game types.

Morever some people still make new Desert Strikes.

So if it started with DS Beta and DSQ PRO now there is a lot more than just that.

By the way if you like to know the delays for DSQ Pro here is some stuff u can use:
