The Battle.net Invitational has been all over the BlizzCon Site these last few days. If you're up for watching some pro maps, check out the videos, commentated by Day9 and JP. Maybe this will give some of you guys a little encouragement into making some Melee maps that could potentially be used by the pros in these kinds of tournaments.
Versus TD Tutorial by OneTwo
This is what I believe to be the longest tutorial in the history of tutorials, and it covers the following...
Convert .WMO files to .M3 by Saeris
This tutorial covers how to convert .WMO Files to .M3, which means that we can now grab most, if not all, of the buildings used in WoW, within SC2. Previously, all the models we have been using to do so have been the .M2 files that were automatically converted by the WoW Model Viewer, which somewhat restricted us.

Vector TPS by malu05 and TheKC
The following video is from a Starcraft 2 map. Yeah ... I can't believe it either :) malu05 teamed with TheKC to work on an impressive 3rd person campaign. Here's a trailer to make you say "Omg I want to play this map now!"
Outranged by anteevy
anteevy is not using the Galaxy Editor to do another DotA or Defense game. Instead he decided to invent a new gameplay concept called Outranged. I really like how innovative he his both for his map and the presentation videos. If you missed his pen and paper presentation it's worth watching.

The mouse tracking trick gave many ideas to people. Here's a nice gesture based spell casting by ChromiumBoy.

GardenOfAiur has been an active member making various great maps and artworks and in order to promote his blog he decided to launch a Starcraft 2 tournament. You may wonder why I news it, it's because he is going to make show off matches on custom games during the breaks. So if you want to participate and win up to $300, you know what to do :)

I newsed the map recently Haunted Temple. It was played in the latest Custom Live and was reviewed by DarkRevenantX. Bounty_98 took many of your feedbacks and improved the map accordingly. He releases a new video to show us the latest version :)
FPS Engine by BacklitAvenger
Making a FPS takes a good amount of time and basically it's always the same thing. You have to make a WASD movement system and a traceline. Instead of doing it from scratch all over again, BacklitAvenger released a FPS engine free to use :) Your feedback is welcome!
Legends by Cedergren Productions
Blizzard games are not only great games but inspiring people to make great things. All your work on Starcraft 2 is really awesome and I want to feature today a World of Warcraft related work. It's a one hour machinima called Legends by Cedergren Productions. And, this is only the first of a serie! If you have the time, please watch it :)
