Seriously. Friends of the ad agency, please quit boosting ratings and posting encouragements.
This sucks beyond reason. I see how that can be a strong word and for anyone not acquainted with SC2 this can look appealing, but in truth, this map will be played by 0.1% of players.

The maps people play are the official ones that internationally ranked players use in high stakes tournaments. There are millions of user generated maps simply because the map editor comes with the game, most of which are never played.

So no, this isn't an intelligent advertising stunt.
This is more like spray-painting "CAR REPAIRS.COM" on a space in a public parking lot.
In a world made entirely out of parking lots.

Instead of advertising for an electronic sport within the virtual world itself, you would have gotten ten times
the success if you somehow translated part of the virtual experience into the "real world".

P.S.: "Computer players" are not isolated morons that need to be fed outside information through a straw, carefully planted in their caves. Get over yourselves.

This is a good, playable and balanced pro map. Like a good print or any other ad should be.
And if you're a SC fan, like me, we can check it out in action. One on one?

Sorry Richard but I am not a friend from agency. I am just a player. One from 15000 people - 0.1%.

This is good, and richard, i can see what you're saying but creative can be creative even if "only" 15,000 people see it and not the whole 15M.
and btw im sure the spread the map with a media budget so possibly a lot more than 15K played it.

This is nothing special or new.
Tons of other games did this before. Farmville took it to the max. This is not.

Here's just one example:
