Souvenir looks like the bastard child of loki and Tag Craftious Maximus. In other words it looks awesome, can't wait to play it.

Really looks nice...great work! I'm gonna check em out ;)

But as you said mostly for 1v1....could be a problem for more than a 1v1 on souvenir because of:
- the hydroplacement is better for top left and bottom right player
- mid left and right have an advantage in closer mex

Well its true that the middle positions have quite a big advantage due to how the map is built, however when it comes to topleft/bottomright: their mexes are further away and vulnerable so it kinda evens out. Anyways small position imbalance shouldn't matter since map is mirrored so both teams have those advantages

I like the second one. But I don't really see it flowing in 1v1. Wouldn't surprise me if it played kind of static...? For 3v3 imo there are WAY too less mexes to actually fight over. Every player has so many secure mexes. I like the shape of the coastline though.

The first one... I don't know. Honestly I find it completely unappealing aesthetically. And also it is a little asymmetrical.

As I already said to you blodir, I agree with lionhardt - I think the positions and the map make it too easy to secure one side of the map and make it not very competitive. Imo it would work better with less secure bases.
But let's get some people to play it first in 1v1s :)

When me and adjuton played it 1v1 is was decently static, but we both played like shit so idk how reputable that would be. I do like the starcraft style maps though
