GenCon 2019 Maps

Here's the map pool for this year's GenCon. We decided to take it a different direction than last year's; last year we included many "standard fare" maps, while this year we went with a bit more modern maps. Some have been used at GenCon before, while others will be making their debut.

A huge shoutout to @infectedsloth for helping me out with testing the new maps for this year and discussing tons of possibilities! We pored through thread after thread, and he looked through 50 pages of threads in the Maps sub-forum.

Re: GenCon 2019 Maps

For those interested here's a breakdown of how many of each maps will be used. It can't be all even due to terrain constraints.

Dance of the Dryads: 2
Dry Season: 3
Infected Glade: 4
Invasion: 2
Platypus: 4
Trouble Once Lurked Beneath: 3

Ashfall, Infected Glade, Trouble Once Lurked Beneath, Venom and The Borogoves are all new to Gencon.


I hope everyone enjoys the maps this year!

Re: GenCon 2019 Maps

The Borogoves?! Oh man, I'm honored. Being in the BoV, Dance of the Dryads and Stygian Rift get more attention, but The Borogoves is probably my personal favorite. Thank you for making my day.

So good to see Killometer's Dry Season too! Such a great single-RotV map. And Robber's Platypus too! Love that map's aesthetics.

On the topic of aesthetics..... I must say you gents picked an array of gorgeous-looking maps. They'll look great on the tables!

I'm not familiar with Flash_19's maps at all. Am looking forward to checking her/his work out ASAP. It's great of you guys to identify and feature new talent. Cheers!

Your thread is filled with great maps, and Borogoves looks to carry that tradition. Nathan (IS) has played it, but I have not yet; I look forward to trying it out this summer!

For our money, Flash is the best map-maker among the "new school" of map makers of the past few years. His thread has a lot of maps I want to try soon.

Wow... I don't know what to say! Thank you so much for the great honor of having some of my maps make the pool for Gen Con! And I greatly appreciate the compliment as well.

Re: GenCon 2019 Maps

I love the map pool this year!

Infected Glade reminds me of a map I very much dislike; maybe it's the same one? I played on it in Online Scape back in the day several times. But I think I also played on it at GenCon, so it is probably a different one.

Regardless, the maps look great and I look forward to playing on them. 6/9 new to the pool! Wow.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: GenCon 2019 Maps

Nice work guys. Glad to see some new maps (that look good). Ashfall in particular looks awesome.

Those maps suck, and when I say suck I mean I need to rethink my army
