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?

2018 is over. It has been a very successful year for foreign mapping. Here are some highlights:

Download ScmDraft map editor from:
click here Stormcoast Fortress

Suicidal Insanity has posted about a potential new feature for ScmDraft, a unit path preview tool.
This feature would be an extremely powerful addition to a mappers toolkit.

We have seen two maps getting picked up for one of the big Korean leagues and the Blizzard ladder.
Congratulations to Freakling for (4)Roadkill and (4)In The Way Of An Eddy being used in KSL and the official ladder.

An update for Brood War remaster introduced new ramp tiles. Its significant news for mappers as these are the first new tiles to be added to the game since Brood War.
Please note that if you use these tiles in a map then it will not be backwards compatible with version 1.16 etc though.

Golgotha teaching Brood War to students at a school in Thailand lead to some fun events which bwmn was able to contribute to in a small way.
A couple of gaming sessions were held, there was a stream with Korean casters, and a bunch of swag including t shirts, keyboards, headphones etc courtesy of Afreeca and Blizzard was delivered to the school.
And there was also pizza!

Brood Wars 20th anniversary was celebrated with Blizzard sending commemorative certificates and coins to various community figures. Map makers were included, with effort made to reach mappers from various eras of brood wars' history. Congratulations to those who received this token of appreciation. Thankyou to Blizzard and those who worked to make this happen.

Lots of foreign tournaments used foreign maps during 2018, and some of these tournaments even had more foreign maps than korean.
A huge thankyou goes out to these tournament organisers for supporting foreign mapping.
All the best for 2019.

2017 has been a significant year for brood war and mappers.

A different version of brood war was released, dramatically changing the landscape.

A different version of scm draft was released. Several features are present that greatly improve a melee mappers toolkit.
A massive thankyou to Suicidal Insanity for this.

Also a major korean tournament used a foreign map. Congratulations to Jungleterrain for (3)Uzi Sara being used in the Ginyuda Team Battle (ASL team battle).

More foreign tournaments have been using foreign maps too. Overall its been a good year for map makers in my opinion.

We have also had a large number of new mappers posting maps on this site. A warm welcome to them. I have to admit Im really impressed by the quality of the maps these guys have made so far.
Likewise it has been a pleasure to see familiar faces returning to the site to comment.

May your concepts come readily, and your execution be ruthless.
Here is to 2018.

So I've been checking every once in a while to see if any korean mapmaking sites have come back up and it seems intothemap is back up. Not sure how new or legit it is but there isn't any content up as far as I can tell. I used to check out the maps there a lot back around 2008-2012.

I will be keeping an eye out for more sites like this, including mapdori, etc.

Feel free to post any discoveries regarding melee mapmaking sites or communities!
