It probably is better not to restart this conversation, but I agree, Isar is the best 2v2 map I have found. :)

I don't think there is much to restart. Isar's Cross is a good, casual map, it can be learned quickly, it's not too hard, takes little time etc. No wonder it's so popular, because it's indeed very good.
It's poorly balanced of course and it shouldn't be used to determine your skill as a player or make competitions. That doesn't make it a bad map. That's like saying coins are useless because you can't buy the most expensive products with them. They were just intended for something else.

Amazing metaphor. :D Though I would say it can very accurately illustrate that my skill as a player is not in the higher echelons. ;)

Sure, skill still counts on it a lot, it's just far easier to master than anything else. And it often creates situations where no matter what you do, you are almost certainly doomed or have a decisive advantage (without any RNG involvement).
