I'm pretty certain I've missed something somewhere

When playing against AI, I get to choose a map type, there's even a preview of what the map will look like, and when the game starts, the map is visible, I can see the mineral depots and all else.

I there a way to start a game with a fully random map (or at least chosen randomly from known map) with no half'n'half fog-of-war ?

Thanks.

Max.

Why would you want this? If you're looking for a random map, why not just assign numbers to the map, roll a d6 and pick that one? Or am I missing some aspect of why you want a random map in the first place. –  Raven Dreamer Aug 12 '10 at 0:25

I may be mistaken, but I think the change in fog-of-war is one of the changes between Starcraft 2 and Broodwars. The idea is that the map is no longer unknown (as that benefits users who spent the time memorizing maps from their starting locations).

While I can't help with the fog of war, if you want the game to pick a random map for you, go to Multiplayer and then create a game. Add as many AIs as you want, change settings, etc. and then start the game. Your map will be chosen for you.

As an added bonus, playing multiplayer will help you work towards achievements too (why they don't work in single player as well, I do not know).
