Amazing new map pool and great news about the colours!


Thank you for the update!

Can we have an option to disable the cinematics so I can leave my nephew playing Cartooned without having to micro manage the game the whole time?

Thank you :slight_smile:


Is there a place to go and see the size of these patch downloads? For those on slow connections?

It is small but I need 20 characters so a lot of smiles :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

One quick question blizzard why did you remove black and grey. they are fantastic colors and you should still allow them for people who want them. i know players who love those colors and one of them is my partner! please bring them back! thanks :smiley:

newest bloody ridge is version 2.1 and not 2.0

New Sylphid = Neo Sylphid ?

How long seasons are going on? is it totaly random? Can you explain please?

Thanks for new patch.

After 1.23.3 patch, When viewing Observer mode, there is a bug that disappears resources, population status board and bottom menu.


I am experiencing this as well. In observer mode the game will start and you can see all the menus that you can normally deactivate by pushing Q W E R, but then randomly the top right menu (showing player names, min/gas, population/apm) disappears and you cannot get it back. I have had different features disappear at different times, it isn’t only that top right menu, I have had all of them disappear randomly as well.

I have also had it where I am observing, and right when the game starts, I have a distorted version of the ‘create game’ screen right in the middle of the game I am observing. It stays there and doesn’t leave. I can even slide the slidebars to set game speed/turn rate as well as the two check boxes to set custom hotkeys/unit limits. It even has the three drop down menus for map, game type, and teams (including the little click icon to browse your folder to look for a map).

I have also had a couple other games I observed where I had other parts of the lobby interfaces overlap the game. It isn’t just the create game menu that’s overlapping.

Another update with 0 new content?

I’m honestly happy that they don’t relase a “big” patch at Season or ASL KSL beginning which would increase the risk of messing up with bugs an important time for Starcraft

last one is little… like 20MB or less

ASL Official maps site’s Hitchhiker map has been updated. Ladder maps also need to be updated to the latest version.

• Hitchhiker 1.3 → 1.4 [Fixed a mineral patch on the 11 o’clock expansion that would not have been collected naturally.]
