Oh boy. Resident mapper Bilxor has been working on something in relative secrecy for quite a while, and his project is about to hit the figurative streets. The LifeForce campaign aptly follows the story of the LifeForce Mercenary Corporation in an 8 map arc, complete with it's own in-game cinematics, unique portions of gameplay, and personally upgradable units. The campaign is set to go live today, so stay tuned in, as in a couple of hours, you will be able to give it a go. Find the map on the website in the link above.
Still not convinced? Check out the mission teaser Bilxor has released. And be on the look-out for a playthrough by Jayborino that will also be with us soon.
Are you one of those people who can't get enough of some good co-op action? OutsiderXE's got you covered. This excellent mapper has recently updated his Shadow of the Xel'Naga campaign, a 7-map story for you and a buddy to play through. If - like me - you don't have any StarCraft-playing friends, you can also play through the campaign by yourself. Find the game on the arcade under 'sotx', or visit the project's page on Mapster through the link above. Still not sure? Here's a video by our resident reviewer JayBorino to tide you over.
Since the Bi-Weekly Testing Thread project has been going strong this past month, we've once again put up a new thread. User Domper and his team have been working on 'Chronicles of Azeroth' for some time now: a mod for StarCraft II that remakes it into not just WarCraft: Orcs and Humans, not just WarCraft II: Tides of Darkness, but also WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos! He has recently released two multiplayer maps for his mods and is now looking for feedback on both the maps as well as his mod.
Are you in need of having that old RTS-style WarCraft fancy tickled again? Then head on over to the thread linked above to learn more and save up some feedback for Chronicles of Azeroth.

Hello again Starcraft II mappers and players alike!
After the great success of last week's Bi-Weekly Testing Thread, providing mapper Trieva with a lot of feedback on his Blitz Fire map, we've once again put up a new thread. This time the target of our scrutiny will be 'Last Remnant', which is the sixth campaign map to the 'Hammer of Dawn' campaign by mapster EDHRIANO.
Have you been looking for some sweet single player action and do you want to speak your mind about what you're seeing? Then head on over to the thread above, and get to work!
Today we've uploaded the first of Mapsters new "Bi-Weekly Testing Thread"s, with the map in question being Trieva's Blitz Fire. What does this mean? Simple: for the next two weeks, we're calling on all Mapsters to play and test this particular map on the arcade, and leave their detailed feedback in the thread. After two weeks, we'll pick a different project and put that up for testing and feedback.
So look up the map, hit the link above, and leave your comments in the thread!
Most of you already know JayBorino as not only a LetsPlayer, but also as a constant participant on our forums. He's recently been collaborating with some of the mod team to set up some new initiatives for you Mapsters as well.

This map is about Humans (Catchers) that have randomly awakened in a maze figuring out that others were placed upon the maze with them. As the humans begin to work together to help each other survive in maze by collecting supplies from the maze, they soon to noticed that one of the humans aren't a true human and has been killed on this maze a while back returning for revenge for those who enter its maze. Will you be a chosen person picked to enter the maze or will be you one that has been killed already and haunt those who enter it...?
The 2D game lib is a basic framework for creating 2D platformer type games in StarCraft 2 which makes gratuitous use translate kinetics (a new data type added in 3.0). With some modifications, the game lib could be used to for any games with a WASD / 8 directional movement controls or even just games with basic 2D physics (tetris, angry birds, flappy bird, canabalt, etc).
Blizzard is looking for community map makers to create some great maps for the upcoming ladder season!
For the upcoming season in Legacy of the Void, we’re giving all map makers the opportunity to have their creation become part of the official ladder map pool. We’ll be using at least two maps from all those which are sent to us; to have your map considered for the upcoming map pool, all you have to do is send it to us for review and it will be considered along with all other maps we receive. We’ve already seen a number of quality maps published to Team Liquid, Reddit, and our Battle.net Forums, and we want to see even more. Check below for entry guidelines.
BattleGrounds is a unique twist on a tug-of-war styled map, where you control a general and use your selected units and abilities to destroy the enemy team's mana stone. An in-game lobby system lets you play to your heart's content without needing to leave the game, and an instancing system allows every player to do different things at the same time. 8 players can play the Story Mode at the same time if they so choose to, or some can play story mode while others PvP. You can leave story mode without leaving the game and challenge others to PvP.

Have you ever dreamed of being able to play as an iconic Warcraft faction like, for example, Kingdom of Stromgarde or Warsong Clan? Have you ever thought of what would have happened to Stromgarde, if that kingdom have never joined the Alliance? Or what would have happened if it chose to aid other kingdoms only after eliminating the Troll threat on their borders? Have you ever thought, what would have happened if a Starcraft universe race would fight against a Warcraft universe race? Blizzard gave us incredible opportunity to have a solid taste of the possibilty with their Heroes of the Storm game, but what if the ability to do so would expand to RTS genre? For all the fans of all Blizzards Universes, we are proud to present an RTS game with playable iconic factions from Warcraft 1. 2. 3, WoW, Starcraft 1.2 and Diablo 1,2,3....and all of it with completely custom art, game systems and features added to the mix!
Long-time Mapster user Sc2broodsc2 (or, more easily known as 'Fenix') has recently updated his 'all doodads project' to include all the cool new stuff we got in LotV. What does this mean, you ask? Simple: Fenix has gone through every single doodad currently available in the editor and screenshotted them. As such, we now have a comprehensive list of doodads that can be searched by picture. Say you're trying to create a Protoss base for your map and you've got an empty spot you need to fill up: you can scroll through the All Doodads project until you find one you like and immediately find the doodads' name, allowing the project to serve as a simple 'legend' of sorts when creating a terrain for your map.
Also included in the project as tilesets and cliffs, for those looking for more conceptual ideas. Happy terraining!
