The newest map pool has just come into play in the last week or so, but the Team Liquid Map Contest #10 has already been announced and map submissions are fully underway! The Team Liquid Map Contest is a competition which allows map makers to show off their works and get rewarded for it, as well as a way for Blizzard to find new maps for future map pools (the current map pool is made entirely from maps which were submitted in TLMC9!)
Our job is to get these maps seen in competitive play, allowing for the judges and the public to see these maps in real games before voting on the final maps in the judging phase. For the TLMC 10 we are bringing some of the best players in the world together to compete in the tournament phase.
We're happy to announce that WardiTV will be running the $4000 Blizzard sponsored event "WardiTV Team Liquid Map Contest Tournament #2" for the tournament phase of the 10th Team Liquid Map Contest. High ranking players from recent WCS events, our first Map Contest Tournament and the GSL are being invited to play in the tournament which will run every day from February 14th-20th.
