They don't own the idea, they own the literal assets. As long as the new game doesn't shamelessly rip off the visuals, then you should be fine.

Also, someone has to report it first. Same goes for all of blizzard's games. If you don't get reported, nothing happens.

I used a few Devastator turrets with towers of power to help defend from the enemy waves. Mostly to buy time for your army, but they clear out the marines and medics on their own quite well.
Army comp: Marauders, Roasters (for the marines), Thumpers, Roborauders, Big-ass marauders. Dump minerals on spaztastics and punk blasters. I also try to maintain 6 mecharauders for mining with about 4 MCUs to build.
If you play your cards right and stay on top of your macro, you should be maxed out every time the train does a lap after 50%. I lost about 50 supply every lap towards the end.
The screenie I attached shows the end. Note the amount of money i have and how much is gone from the map. I killed it two laps after the screenshot.

Well I got sick. Sick enough to stay home from work. That means loads of free time.
To spend mapping.
6 day gap between map releases. Mission accomplished.
On another note, I've got two different map ideas and I don't know which one to do first. They are:
1) A snowy summit, Cool Down's search for some baller ice cream only to be halted by the Snowblowers.
2) A recreation of the very original Marauders! map from 2010 that is no longer available anywhere on the internet.
Decide for me por favor.

Not sure where to put this...
Ever since they added mutators to coop, I've had the mutator icons stuck on my screen when using the coop dependency. You can't highlight them or anything.
Anyone know how to make them go away?

So the next map is set in the urban nightlife, complete with thuggish Marauders and rap music. You control a marauder named Cool Down, a cool guy who does cool things. There's a problem though...
...I can't figure out what to fill the map with. I've got the beginning and the ending hashed out. It's currently set up kind of like the Mechanic where its reminiscent of Metroid. The map looks like a downtown area with several structures and alleyways you can look around. I've got a parking lot, a small bar, and a totally not walmart. Basically I need some suggestions to get the creative juices flowing. If someone inspires me I'll work their name into it so that Cool Down can kill you. Feel free to be completely ridiculous as well, as this is Marauders.

I don't know how to properly change the cursor, but you can override the texture easily.
If you are using Terran as the player race, find the texture for the Terran cursor, export it, edit it, and then import it with the same name. It will override the Terran cursor with whatever you swapped it with.

It's probably just hiring systems in general man, not just you. I guarantee there's many talented people in the US who also apply, but simply living outside of the US puts your application in the "other stack" if you know what I mean. It's not specific to Blizzard.
And on the topic of "stealing ideas," I made a map a long time ago that was extremely similar to Niadra's mission in Hots, but people do come up with similar ideas without any interactions.
