Never played on Outboxer, but from watching Proleague it looks like a fun map. Maybe they could add destructible rocks to the island bases so that Terran can't ninja expand until the late-game.

EDIT: Looks like the Proleague version has a Creep Tumor at each island base.

Watching maps in Proleague has always made me wanted to play on them. It's fairly balanced and is fun to watch so why not?

In general as far as the map pool goes. I really hope they have a better variety going forward. By that I mean a couple maps that favor each race.

The last 2 seasons the maps were kinda similar in that they favored one race moreso than the other 2. 2 seasons ago it was mainly blink heavy maps with tight chokes that favored protoss and this season its a lot of the maps favored zerg because of the hard to defend 3rd bases.

I don't mind seeing maps like that, but I just hope its not like every map favors 1 race. A couple maps with hard to hold 3rds and open areas, a couple blink friendly maps or ones with good chokes, and a couple maps that are good for drop play would be ideal imo.

Soooo it's balanced?
The only balanced maps are Terran favored maps, obviously.

wtf, why is a well-designed not overly large 2 play map terran favored? I'ts not even wide open (TvP dream) and its an overall pretty balanced map from what i can tell and imo much better than overgrowth or habitation station. its a great map, really

Lol, name me a supposed terran favored map. Waystation is terran favored? Oh right, except when the coinflip gives long-spawns. short spawn means it isn't terran disadvantage, not sure if it gives a real advantage, maybe slight against zerg.

at this point what would be wrong with giving a terran favored map in the map pool when terran winrate is >50% and UP in TvP clearly and TvZ?
try the map. its great

While we enjoy Outboxer, it wasn't a map that we chose for the Season 3 ladder map pool.

For the upcoming season, we looked to reward the hard work of community map makers and offer spots in the ladder map pool. Through the Team Liquid Map Contest, and other means, we reviewed many community maps and worked with our partners to choose maps we felt would fit for Season 3.

We're still working out final details, but we're hoping to preview the maps soon. Stay tuned.

Excited for the new maps.

A bit worried about the "community made maps" and "TL map contest" though - last time that happened we were stuck with a map pool that seemed like the majority were created by a silver league protoss for 5 months (Heavy rain, Yeonsu).

Can't wait to see the preview. Please give us a balanced pool! I have cookies.
(Would also have loved Out Boxer)

Funny, I was just thinking that it was the most amazing map I've ever seen :/ Or at least quite close to it.

Interesting that Preservation came in 2nd as it was one of the maps that from what I saw wasn't really finished and looks literally rough around the edges.

I am talking about 2v2 here.
