  • Bi-Weekly Testing Thread #2 - Last Remnant

    Posted by Mozared May 03, 2016 at 14:07 UTC

    Bi-Weekly Testing Thread #2

    Hello again Starcraft II mappers and players alike!

    After the great success of last week's Bi-Weekly Testing Thread, providing mapper Trieva with a lot of feedback on his Blitz Fire map, we've once again put up a new thread. This time the target of our scrutiny will be 'Last Remnant', which is the sixth campaign map to the 'Hammer of Dawn' campaign by mapster EDHRIANO.

    Have you been looking for some sweet single player action and do you want to speak your mind about what you're seeing? Then head on over to the thread above, and get to work!

  • Announcing Mapster's new Bi-Weekly Testing Thread

    Posted by Mozared Apr 19, 2016 at 14:12 UTC

    Bi-Weekly Testing Thread

    Today we've uploaded the first of Mapsters new "Bi-Weekly Testing Thread"s, with the map in question being Trieva's Blitz Fire. What does this mean? Simple: for the next two weeks, we're calling on all Mapsters to play and test this particular map on the arcade, and leave their detailed feedback in the thread. After two weeks, we'll pick a different project and put that up for testing and feedback.

    So look up the map, hit the link above, and leave your comments in the thread!

    Ghost Finder 2 by Darkblizzard


    This map is about Humans (Catchers) that have randomly awakened in a maze figuring out that others were placed upon the maze with them. As the humans begin to work together to help each other survive in maze by collecting supplies from the maze, they soon to noticed that one of the humans aren't a true human and has been killed on this maze a while back returning for revenge for those who enter its maze. Will you be a chosen person picked to enter the maze or will be you one that has been killed already and haunt those who enter it...?

    2D Game Library by greythepirate

    The 2D game lib is a basic framework for creating 2D platformer type games in StarCraft 2 which makes gratuitous use translate kinetics (a new data type added in 3.0). With some modifications, the game lib could be used to for any games with a WASD / 8 directional movement controls or even just games with basic 2D physics (tetris, angry birds, flappy bird, canabalt, etc).

    Ladder Map Pool Submission

    Blizzard is looking for community map makers to create some great maps for the upcoming ladder season!


    For the upcoming season in Legacy of the Void, we’re giving all map makers the opportunity to have their creation become part of the official ladder map pool. We’ll be using at least two maps from all those which are sent to us; to have your map considered for the upcoming map pool, all you have to do is send it to us for review and it will be considered along with all other maps we receive. We’ve already seen a number of quality maps published to Team Liquid, Reddit, and our Forums, and we want to see even more. Check below for entry guidelines.

  • Battlegrounds Playthhrough

    Battlegrounds by Syco with Danze


    BattleGrounds is a unique twist on a tug-of-war styled map, where you control a general and use your selected units and abilities to destroy the enemy team's mana stone. An in-game lobby system lets you play to your heart's content without needing to leave the game, and an instancing system allows every player to do different things at the same time. 8 players can play the Story Mode at the same time if they so choose to, or some can play story mode while others PvP. You can leave story mode without leaving the game and challenge others to PvP.
