What are some new things happening in defense maps?
Same old thing, just a competition of getting the most kills instead of what defence games really should be about.
I say defence games should be about using minerals stragetically (players get equal amount of money) and covering each other when the level is hard for them.
Ex: a player with all ghost can kill a ling lvl easily, compare to a player with all goons. So the he helps the other player kill the lings so they don't lose.
Pretty much the same thing is happening, although a few more systems are popping in.. Look in the "Defense" section of the Download Database, and check them out.

most of the new defenses aren't really defences...
you just stop people from getting to a place instead of them killing something and you stopping them from killing it.
Or when time runs out you lose lives.
Defences are just a real genocide these days. Elements of strategy and fun should be added into every single defence map out there.
Defenition : Resistance against attack; Protection
So Scince most of these "Defense" maps only have you attacking someone walking on a path, wouldnt they be fake? scince the enemey isnt attacking?
Mini Town Defense is a good defense map, probably the only original one so far.
New Defense ideas would be to;
A) Make it so your defending agaisnt an attacking army.
B) Make it unlike other defense maps.
C) Make it balanced (stats, terrain, ect.)
D) Know what defense actually means!
