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.

A while ago we posted about a bug that causes players to drop from custom games.
It's probably not the uploading itself which causes errors, but the time players spend in the lobby before they start.
Again, this is only speculation, but several people already pointed this out to me.

Community Project by You!
We're hosting another community project here on Mapster, this time around we're going to make an entire new/playable/balanced race! We're calling all data editors, artists, and creative thinkers together, so feel free to join in the fun because we can't do it without you! ;)
Adventures of Goku Firebat by zenx1
We saw the first two chapters quite some time ago, and zenx is back with three all new chapters (the last is in his thread). Doesn't seem to me like a full map project that people can download and play, just more like a movie/cinematic type thing for your enjoyment, :).

Nuke Tac Toe by Olsenn
It's just a simple game of Tic Tac Toe... with a twist. You play tic-tac-toe against your opponent by dropping nukes on the square where you want to place your X or O. Each square has neutral units engaging in battle so the nukes have something to destroy, and the camera zooms in and pans around while the nukes are dropped, so you can see the destruction up close. This map is short, sweet, and to the point! Not only does it support play against a human, but you may also play versus an AI if you wish!

Do you have any feedback for Blizzard's Tutorials in the Maps n' Mods section? Let me know about it either on the Battle.net Forums or right here on Mapster! Like I did previously with the Editor and Popularity System Feedback/Suggestions, I plan on creating a document and sending this into Blizzard to hopefully help them help us!
Cube³ by Doubotis
Seems like Doubotis has released a proof of concept for his EDGE-styled project within SC2. It really reminds me of the old marble game from years ago, where your goal was to just roll it around an obstacle course to the end (kinda sorta like Labyrinth, I suppose). Not only do you get to roll around as an awesome cube throughout the game, but you also have access to an in-game "editor", where you can adjust different tile data, as well as place new blocks down to create your very own boards. Whether or not he comes out with a map of this style, I do agree, this is another good example of the many possibilities we have with the GalaxyEditor.
