    Season 4 - new map pool.

    Season 4 changes look good. Particularly the introduction of non-close spawn Shattered Temple and Metalopolis - basically the MLG versions.
    Happily, Searing Crater and Backwater gulch were 2 of my 3 veto choices - so that's worked out well

    After reviewing player feedback, we’ve selected a 1v1 map pool composed of tournament-configured maps for the upcoming Season 4 of the StarCraft II ladder.Six of the eight total maps in the Season 4 1v1 map pool will be maps that have been used in tournaments around the world. In addition, Shattered Temple and Metalopolis will be returning to the map pool, with close spawn positions disabled. Two non-tournament maps — Abyssal Caverns and Nerazim Crypt — will also be included. Players can veto these two non-tournament maps and still have a single veto remaining for the remaining maps, just as a player would in a major tournament.
    These maps will be removed:
    • Backwater Gulch
    • Searing Crater
    • Typhon Peaks
    These maps will form the new 1v1 map pool:
    • Abyssal Caverns (non-tournament)
    • Antiga Shipyard
    • Metalopolis (close spawns disabled)
    • Nerazim Crypt (non-tournament)
    • Shakuras Plateau
    • Shattered Temple (close spawns disabled)
    • Tal’darim Altar LE
    • Xel’naga Caverns
    Depending on the feedback we receive regarding this approach to the 1v1 ladder map pool, we may move further toward a tournament-configured map format in future ladder seasons. We look forward to hearing what you think, and we hope you all have a great Season 4!

    Huh, they listened to feedback from the community I think.

    I saw something about it on their forums, and they were removing Xel'naga Caverns, and were met by complaints of people who like 2 spawn maps.
    Also, they got many cries to get Metalopolis back in

    Season 4 is now live in the EU. Protoss have been given some neat buffs and economy changes and Terran has had EMP AOE reduced by 25%. I believe you only play on match which decides on your league....so Good Luck and Have Fun

    Re: Season 4 - new map pool.

    First games in season 4 today.. 5 ZvZ's in a row! Map pool is much better. Only map I have veto'd is Xel Naga as I always end up having to roach rush it if I want to win.... wide open natural and no easy third makes for a hard long game on it for zerg.
