It seems EU has the best maps and unfortunately those on other servers cannot access them. NA server has some decent maps too but SEA has by far the worst maps, don't know much about KR server but I suspect ladder is the favourite there.
Can it be made a policy that maps be uploaded to all servers? Shouldn't Blizzard be responsible for making something like this standard? It should be frowned upon to only upload to one server...
Russian server had been added to the EU server.
SEA and SK wont play your maps if its not translated. Actually there are some guys who translating maps to both server and they usually decide which map they should translate is too look for maps on sc2mapster.
I bought an EU account, so I have SEA | NA | EU ... basically, I am trying to get my hands on a TW account so I can upload to TW + KR ... but its harder than you think because of the way they have set it up with prepaid game cards etc ... its not like I can go to Blizzard and give em $50 and say I want TW nao! ... doesn't work like that ... but either way, for me to upload to the major servers its an extra $120 out of my pocket ... for no reason otherwise to be nice to other people so they have some good maps to play.
Every one has moved to NA because of the lack of good custom maps, which in turn means there are less people on SEA so no one bothers playing on it. Seriously, you can only play Sotis on SEA ... nearly every other map can never find players without waiting for half an hour ... even Phantom II (SEA Phantom which pwns Phantom Mode) which was hugely popular a year ago has near no players now ... its a ghost town and if I had paid $65 for SC2 and was still locked to SEA I would be fucken pissed off.
What is the point of region locking in general? Especially for publishers? It is fucked up, it is a fucked up system that should not be in place, people should be free to move to the servers to play what they want ... god ... I would love to get on the TW or CN servers ... do you have any idea how good Chinese map makers are?
