Default Blizzard hosts a Mapping Contest for SC2

Blizzard apparently want to kick-start mapping. Theyre hosting a mapping contest up until 11. September. The three winners will be able to go to BlizzCon and will additionally receive 5000$. Your map will be playable at BlizzCon, should you win.

Be sure to read the rules thoroughly.

Heres the link: http://eu.blizzard.com/en-gb/communi...tests/sc2maps/


I'm excited to see what maps are going to win. One month isnt much, so it'd be best to start now.

I am quite surprised blizzard is moving so fast for a mapping contest. I would still want to play the game some more first :P

Especially the part about giving away licensing rights to Blizzard!

If my map is in any condition to submit by then (and it almost certainly will not be), I'll enter into the contest. It's not as though I have anything to lose; I use StarCraft 2 intellectual property in the map, rather than my own imaginings, since it best fits the available assets.

By the way, it's kinda sad that the highest quality custom map I've played so far is Bumper Cars. Most of the published maps are terrible.

A map featuring Hypnotoad should do it.


Poor Blizzard having to review huge amount of crap just to find the few diamonds in there. They don't know what they signed up for...

They are just hoping that someone accidentally makes something really popular like DotA and they can make money out of it.


I liked it better when editor was just a neat extra feature and modding was all about doing something fun.
Now its all about money.

y, blizzard is making the popularity system worse by this competition and want only a few maps to be played by players I guess. What an evil system.....


I really hope they remove the popularity system cuz it's almost impossible to promote your maps by now since it's almost 1000 maps out there by now... and more coming....
