I pretty much bought SC2 because I remember the wonderful days of my custom game (and map making!) days in SC1. Though I long gave up hope in making maps when Wc3 launched, I was hoping that SC2 would be fun to play in custom games... It's not... Wc3 and SC both had a much better way to join games and thats the open list. It's just... sad. ): I found a remade map from way back in SC:BW which is Diplomacy Gold 7.7... my memories of that wonderful game... Mmmm. However upon looking at it's rating I knew that I would never get to play the wonderful map again... It only had 1 rating...
In essence this guy sums it up perfectly:
Q: Why is WoL not as good as BW from a UMS perspective?
I feel like this quote shows the essence and feel of the problem.
Well if they are going to use tags then they need to be more through:
I said Pros only!
Why don't the newbs ever stop?
OMFG that guy was the worst noob ever!
4 of us are friends and we need a guy to blame.
I cannot stand little kids!
Yes I do smoke, get over it.
After we are done, smoke break!
We are all drunk and our wives left us.
The pot smokers we have here would top anyone at Woodstock.
Beginners Only! No Trolls!
I want to farm some free wins!
No pros on the enemy team!
Yes I did play DotA.
If there are any kind of tags, I would say it's the mapmaker that should define the set of tags for his own map, then a game host can pick one of the tags and it will be shown on the open game list.
It's preferable that they allow have a LOT of tags (ex : 30-50 different tags) per map to allow a real diversity.
Then it has a double advantage :
1) Mapmakers can customize tags to something that fit his map's purposes.
For example, tag-wise, a specific RPG map could have the "Noobies only!" and "Lv10+ only! Come!" tags among his 30-50 tags. A DotA-like map could have a "5v5 -ap -mp -set" tag and various combos of their in-map settings as the different possible tags.
2) Blizzard only have the map author to run after and punish if something is wrong rather than letting openly named lobbies that would look too unprofessional to their tastes. It also ensures them that any kind of custom lobby naming won't go out of control.
