Map Title(?): Lobster pot
-"pot shaped"
-Enough metal & space for a comfortable 7 vs 7
-Similar to hot stepper, lava rises to "fill" the pot periodically(maybe 10 min withouut,2 minutes with)
-Similar to hot stepper, there are "safe zones" that exist above the lava, fighting for these areas should be more strategic than economic(less mexes)
-Inattentive lobs will be roasted, maybe a timer or something for fairness
-The lava should probably be a bit slower due to higher stakes and above
-Essentially, Hot stepper for teams

I thought of a map like this too. Use a term long enough and you will eventually want to see it become literal, maybe.

Having to periodically rebuild all mexes and relink the grid would be annoying though. I think a version where the lava is always there and you just to have to island-hop might be more playable. Lava could be made weak enough that units can cross quickly without taking too much damage also.

so hot stepper but bigger essentially

lobster pots in real life are cubic/rectangular but i think a recent maths law change means that we must call them ?rhombus? equiangular quadrilateral.. or parallelogram

very few things are sadly pot shaped anymore.. except pots..

Map Title(?): Lobster equiangular quadrilateral ~ rolls right off the tongue
