Today, Blizzard announced via a post on the Korean Blizzard community forum, that it is planning to add the popular “GSL maps” to the StarCraft II Ladder map pool. These maps, which were made specifically for, and are prominently featured in the Global StarCraft II League, include Crevasse, Tal’Darim Altar and Terminus RE. Professional StarCraft II players have been overwhelmingly in favor of playing on these new maps because they tend to promote “macro-oriented” games (due to their size and the amount of defendable expansions available).
For those who can’t read Korean, here is a short translation of Blizzard’s post:
We’re going to maintain the number of ladder maps to 9 with 3 macro-oriented, 3 aggressive and 3 normal maps, so that a player can thumb down based on the player’s preference. GSL maps(soon) are macro-oriented.
