New Ladder Maps to be Added Next Season

Balance Designer David Kim has announced changes to next season's map pool, which will feature three new maps, and will see the return of a further four.
Starcraft 2 is a game of tremendous variety, but its battlefields, as much as they can shift strategy in one direction or another, are limited in number. When a new map is introduced you are likely to play hundreds of games on it, in the process learning it by heart, perhaps becoming a little bored, a little vexed. This is why changes to the map pool are always welcome. Visiting new places, going against new geographical constraints, can offer respite to those used to seeing the same layouts day after.
Here is a preview of the new maps:
The four returning maps will be:
- Akilon Wastes
- Bel'shir Vestige
- Derelict Watcher
