I offer a warm welcome to all the new mappers that have joined the site over the last 12 months.
Welcome to the Korean and Chinese map makers who are sharing maps here. Long may it continue.

And welcome back goes to returning faces.
For example, having not been seen for several years, TkTkVrooM uploaded 17 finished maps in 2019!

Thankyou to all the tournament organisers who used foreign maps.

Did you know, Shakuras got its name from the phrase "Shake Your Ass".
Did you know, the SCV got its name from the word "Skivvy".
Did you know, korean commentators call zerglings "Sugarlings". This is especially appropriate when they have the adrenal gland upgrade.
Did you know, after the 0.91 update, Bubbles had been rated 17 times and got a total of -2,147,483,638 points. This gave it a rating of -126,322,566.9

Are we moving into another 'Roaring Twenties' decade?
Is 2020 going to be a year of Protoss dominance?

Great article
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Jukado for still making these posts and managing some stuff on the site and just generally always having your eyes and ears on what's going on.
