Next Season’s Maps
Last week was very busy for us with BlizzCon, during which we released the next season’s new 1v1 and team maps to the custom games list. They are now available for players to test out before they go live!
Map Pool 1v1
The full map pool for the 1v1 ladder next season will be as follows:
Blackpink+ Show Spoiler +
Neon Violet Square+ Show Spoiler +
Catalyst+ Show Spoiler +
Battle on the Boardwalk+ Show Spoiler +
Abyssal Reef+ Show Spoiler +
Ascension to Aiur+ Show Spoiler +
Odyssey+ Show Spoiler +
We thought you might like to know why we choose three returning maps for this selection. Abyssal Reef has been consistently popular at the high levels of ladder and professional play while also being quite well-balanced in terms of matchups. That said, it’s also been in the pool for quite a while now. We wanted to keep it for one more season so it could help us to gauge balance in the new patch by acting as a constant variable. Odyssey and Ascension to Aiur, meanwhile, are both strong maps in terms of ladder win rates, and are currently the most popular maps across all divisions by a significant margin, so we thought it’d be good to keep them around for the next season.
