Subject: Spelling mistake in contest rules + wrong (us-only) links in eu blog post + two questions + bonus
To: <>


I found a spelling mistake in the lawyers' version of the contest rules ( ):

Utilizing the foreging entry process ... it should be spelled forgoing or foregoing instead.
What you wrote there is the word for an ancient, "food gatherer" occupation. Foraging* oops. Oh well, on to my next point;

Also, there are incompatible, US-only links posted to the EU arcade blog at
... Here's correct, working links for EU:

Armory Retaking

Construction Yard

Cradle of Death

Death from Above

Immortal Siege

Mercenary Business

Part and Parcel

Primal Ascension

Scavenger Hunt

Solar Right

Lastly; two questions / requests:

It was absolutely not made clear whether we are required to play in the region to be eligible. I played everything in the region. Hope it was the right thing to do. Please confirm.

And the 10 minutes minimum rule is only in the full rules too. Almost lost two points because of it!

And a bonus question: Why, when I go to copy a custom map link in-game, the protocol has two colons after it? Like this:

I think one colon should be enough, like this:

battlenet:://starcraft/map/2/200016 (strange URI format)
battlenet://starcraft/map/2/200016 (usual URI format)

Better visible in a Fixed width font:
Code: Select all

[+2] Some guy in the comment section of EU blog said that links are NA, because someone at blizzard just copipasted them without changing and provided actual links for EU maps:

Unfortunately I'm just "some guy" there. Oh well, my work still helped some :) even if I got no credit.
