~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cherokee — Beloved map? Or cesspool for skybases? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cherokee is an old and beloved Annihilation map. However, I believe there is a problem with the map that needs to be fixed because it is literally game-breaking and frustrating: the extremely open nexus. The open design greatly weakens the defensive capabilities of a team, making it exponentially harder to defend because there are multiple points of entry that are mere blocks away from the nexus. Even teams with 3-5 defenders can't guarantee that an assassin or skybase rusher gets 1-2 hits since there are simply too many places to guard, unlike maps like Coastal, Aftermath, Hamlet, or Villages, which are more balanced. Surprisingly, this issue also negatively affects rushers too, not just defenders. The 1 x 1 hole behind the nexus allows players to easily void rushers with swapper and scorpio, basically making rushing on the map impossible against larger teams, an issue that has been made worse by teamstacking. To make Cherokee more balanced and by extension more enjoyable, I see two glaring fixes that are begging to be made: close the 1 x 1 hole behind the nexus, and close some of the other entrances. Even a small change, like the one seen below, can go a long way to make the map more balanced enjoyable. Please, at least consider these changes and understand the severity of this issue.
