This collection of enlarged map images is provided to give players a better knowledge and understanding of
the maps most commonly played in multi-player games of Warcraft II BNE.
Top players learn every detail about the maps they play. This added knowledge significantly increases their
ability to understand the tactics and strategies required for competitive Warcraft play. Learning all of the
starting positions on a map is vital for not only knowing the possible starting locations for enemy towns,
but -- when coupled with the locations of additional resource spots - also provides the knowledge of where
to go in order to mine Gold and harvest Lumber. Memorizing out-of-the-way resource points can be important
when staging a surprise attack. Often players will discover previously unnoticed characteristics about maps
they have played on several times. With these enlarged map images players can find the shortest path to
tactically advantageous locations and record other important terrain features that can be used to their advantage.
Although these enlarged views are created using an internal development tool not available to the public, the
process basically takes a multiple screen shots of the game map and connects them together into a single .pcx
file that can upwards of 20-80 MB in size. This file is then resized in Photoshop and placed onto our website
Many players have found it useful to print their favorite maps and place them by their computer for reference
during play. Please note that these images may need to be resized to fit onto a standard sheet of paper or
larger sized paper can be used.
