I'm pissed off of current custom maps (i'm speaking especially about evenings and weekends).
Top maps on EU (it is impossible to play below op30 maps where are 4 or more players):
Baneling Arena - wtf, how this could become popular? controls and camera sucks. I see that most people just leave in first minute.
The card game - good game, but already too tired from it
Nexsuswars 0.2 - cmon, where is update? In US it is 1.3 or something
income wars - good, but again become boring
red/green/whatever TD - look like just ground color changes :)
most other games stay at top 30 for month, so also get bored.
So I would like to find players, who like different maps, who want to try new maps, people who like teamplay.
I want play games for 6-12 players (not 2-4 like now).
I want to help authors to raise their games to top 30, so more players could try good maps.
Am I alone in this thoughts?
PS: i know about sc2testersnet, but for me it seems that admin only interesting in promoting his website.
Well, popularity sucks, but we already know that. For me is also pretty boring, I can't play many maps because in the fourth page you don't find enough people joining the games. Only way is to play with friends, but you don't always have 4-5 friends online willing to play custom. Blizzard is aware of this, probably a change to the system will come with the next patch hopefully (or the one after).
If you wanna help me with Xel'naga Relics I'll be grateful. I need to test it intensely, and I think has potential to be a good game, probably not a Top-20 game, but doesn't matter. I only want people can see my map on the list and try it once :)
