Season 8 of Starcraft 2 has started so make sure you do your placement matches!
There are some map changes to be aware of. The addition of 3 new maps and the elimination of 4 will definitely impact performance while players get used to the new terrain.
There is one new 1v1 map being added called Condemned Ridge. Metalopolis and Korhal Compound LE are being removed. (these changed seem a little bit pro Zerg to me.) Two new 2v2 maps include Molten Crater and Desolate Stronghold. The maps being eliminated are High Orbit and Discord IV.
The changes being implemented are directly related to the maps use in tournaments. The maps not being used in tournaments were eliminated, so I guess it’s a good thing for those planning on competing in the future.
Good luck this season!
