Just an idea. I played star craft fooooooorever and I really enjoyed making my own maps, like the D&D Maps. Would there be a possibility of Blizz giving us an editor, like you did in SC, so we can make our own bg/arena maps that we can share on the site and try out with wargames and maybe have a monthly competition on blizz fav map so you have a base set and then rework the compicated geometry? I mean if we complain we don't have maps, let wargames be of real use and let us create maps and then hand them over to you and you go and make bg maps offa them? Just a thought.
We’d like to. We certainly haven't forgotten about the PvP community at all and we do a lot of PvP oriented behind the scenes work right now.
Battlegrounds are the same way. They may look simple -- even static -- to a casual observer, but in reality there's an incredible number of very complicated processes going on behind the scenes.
The other part of the reason is that Battlegrounds (and Arena maps, for that matter) require a higher degree of polish than a PvE map does.
we also have to craft every BG essentially by hand every time. We’d like to develop a tool to create PvP maps
Still, ultimately we think all this effort will pay off, and we're confident that you'll feel the same way.

If the same flaw exists in a bg or arena map, then that imperfection might be exploited for an unfair advantage, which runs contrary to the spirit of fair competition we want in that kind of PvP.
