Season 2 Ladder Lock - June 23

General Discussion
This morning we posted a blog that offered a reminder on the incoming Season 2 Ladder lock intended to occur next week. Shortly after the blog went live, we received reports from players that the ladder season had already locked.

After investigating the reports, it appears that a configuration error in our system caused the Season 2 Ladder to lock today rather than next week.

While looking at our options for how best to resolve this issue, we realized that reverting the lock at this point could cause further confusion among many players on their final Season 2 Ladder standing. This is especially true for Grandmaster players that believe they’ve already secured their positions as part of the lock. Additionally, we'd prefer to allow the lock to extend an extra week rather than risk making a change that could affect the ladder data near the end of a season. For these reasons, we've decided to allow the lock to remain. This means the ladder will be locked from June 23, 2014 until Season 3 starts on July 7, 2014.

It's always our preference to provide advance notice on incoming ladder locks and we apologize for the inconvenience of this situation.
Thanks for letting everyone know. I wasn't getting promoted to diamond within a week anyways XD.
In other words, you guys goofed up and it would have been too much hassle to revert.
As compensation, tell us the map pool now, you fools!

So basically what you're saying is lazy gm players just got a boost? Kappa
Lame :(
This is a small blunder, no biggie. Now, having a broken league system for about 7 months and no Terrans winning a premier tournament for about 7 months...now those are what I call problems. Good thing they both got fixed eventually lol.

Darn it, I wanted to get WoL plat in preparation for going into HotS.
Then why doesn't the new season start on June 30th instead? That'd be fair instead of making us have to wait two weeks before we can get promoted/demoted.
Why can't we just have it one week T___T

Summer doesn't last forever!

This is a good Idea.
