SC1 maps are actually MPQ files. I imagine SC2 maps can import custom models, sounds, and the like. Keeping HotS content out of WoL maps would be the equivalent of scanning SC1 Vanilla maps for Brood War sound files. Can it be done without thousands of false positives? Would a few tweaks throw off the automated scent? (see: YouTube mirroring) Does Blizzard have the manpower to manually comb through all maps? Will they five years from now? It's a battle lost before it has even begun.

I guess it's because it's ridiculously clear that Activision-Blizzard are not listening or trying kiddy band-aids about the most important concerns (ex : popularity list) and are doing too many retarded things as well.

Personally, if only they did a real fix to the popularity list to make the whole section of custom maps playable beyond the first pages, I would probably semi-forgive or plain forgive everything else. But with their changes for HotS, they are actually amplifying their bad popularity list to even worse and that's excluding many other bad changes.

He is merely exercising his given right to complain about what he chooses to spend his money on.
