Blizzard Deleting User-made StarCraft II Maps Due To Inappropriate Content

Posted By | On 06th, Aug. 2010

Blizzard has started to review and see the maps that people make in StarCraft II, which results in deleting some user-made made maps.

After a complaint by a player whose map was deleted, the Blizzard community manager “Lylirra” answered by said, “while players are encouraged to share the maps they create through Battle.net, published maps are subject to review to ensure that they promote a fun and safe environment for all players. If a map is found to contain inappropriate content, it will be removed from Battle.net and the map maker will be contacted via email.”

Blizzard was later on asked for the reason to why they are reviewing the maps, when they didn’t do that in the original StarCraft, community manager “Bashiok” stated that, “Because we can. Literally. We have a support department now of size and ability to enforce these types of things. It simply wasn’t possible when our in-game support used to consist of approximately 20 technical support agents.”

“We’re working on improving our processes to ensure the map maker has more information on why their map was removed, right now it is a bit vague and has obviously led to this misunderstanding.” he added.
