Starcraft II custom games

Postby Jesse James » Tue Mar 19, 2013 12:37 pm

I haven't really explored the option yet, been focusing mostly on the campaign and a few melee with a friend or two. Does anyone know of any worthwhile custom games on SC2? I'd like to check out what people have done with the editor.

That is so very sad, doesn't seem like SC2 has the modding community that WC3 obtained.

I've seen some pretty good quality maps, some even compare to WC3 ones, but there's not a community in it

Probably cause SCII can't compete with Warcraft III except through ladder. I think all the modders are still on WC3.

However, I believe the surge of SCII modders is immanent with the expansion being released. Every subsequent game that Blizzard releases will dwindle the Warcraft III community down. Although there are many loyal players that will stick to the game until the end, a surge of custom game popularity will surely bring many players over.

From what I've heard, there is a modding team that is transferring WCIII models into SCII. This would make emulating popular WCIII games incredibly simple and probably attract a good amount of people into SCII custom games. If the community starts demanding custom games to be transfered from WCIII -> SCII, the modding community will grow. It just takes one domino to fall and we could very well be witnessing an evolution in SCII custom games and possibly the total annihilation of WCIII.

Yes but clearly Starcraft II isn't as entertaining in the custom game world as Warcraft III x)
