TLMC5 began with over one hundred and fifty maps. After deciding on the finalists for TLMC, the judges thought it would be interesting to see a tournament run using the finalists from TLMC5. Ideally we would have run this tournament prior to the final voting of TLMC but due to time constraints we were unable to do so. We hope that this event becomes a success so that we are able to run a tournament for the next TL Map Contest before the voting period takes place.
Regardless of the results in the TLMC, all seven finalist maps deserve to see competitive play. The replays will be helpful to the mapmakers in their future endeavors and getting a sneak peek at the maps (some of which we may see on ladder) will be exciting for sure!
