If only it didn't just destroy casual maps. Like the topic I pointed to says, some people have been in pretty hardcore development of their maps for months. Some have their maps in battle.net. One guy only needs you to click Show More 2 times to see his map, but almost nobody will play it.
He can update it and maintain it constantly, who cares. Nobody will truly notice it. And so, even those dedicated folks end up leaving their map alone and will not touch SC2 again. At least, until this changes.
Any filter would be great, but the old system would be a good start. Just so any random guy with any map of his doing can make a game and get people to play it.
Quite frankly, its a disgrace. Blizzard never cares. Never will. The fact that the editor is so hard to use is excusable and understandable. The fact that wasting my life on it wouldn't even guarantee that I'd be able to get any match on it is a disgrace.
It doesn't matter how powerful the editor is. What we can get is nothing, and the custom map community is just slowly dying. All the crazy things this editor could bring? Doesn't matter. You'll rarely ever see anything special or new here. It wouldn't survive the popularity test.
I don't have much to say. That was enough to convince me never to buy the following SC games. Or any games at all, except D3 just because I can't skip that one. I bought SC2 mainly for custom games, and look what it got me.
I just wanted to say this out loud. I find this so unacceptable and sad.
