I play DOTA 2 and this is the name of one of their upcoming tournaments I think. Actually, I don't know. It flashed by while I was waiting for my match to begin, so really it could have been an ad for tickets on a vacation into outer space.

My Review

This is a really nice archipelago -- three main islands and then a couple of little ones hanging around. I like how each island is different and they more or less surround a huge body of water. I found a really cool stronghold that spanned a ravine; on one of the bridges was just sitting a chest. In the same stronghold, I found a flooded library -- not something you see every day. I was also impressed with a huge erosion in the middle of the desert on the west island. It's so big, you can clearly make it out on the map.

All told, even without villages this is a really cool map for groups who want to float from island to island for a little while. The only bad parts were the two swamps: one in the southeast corner the other in the northwest corner. Check out the last photo below: a random floater with a rose.
