Standings have been reset, new maps are available and more!
Yesterday afternoon Blizzard announced that StarCraft II's second season has started! 2014 Season 1 milestones have be awarded while standings and bonus pools have been reset. New maps are now available for the 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 map pools, which are detailed in this article.
As always, the hidden skill ratings used for matchmaking and league placement carry over from one season to the next, so if you were already placed in a league prior to the 2014 Season 1 lock, you'll only need to play one placement match to kick off the new season.
Additionally, we’ve applied a free character name change to all accounts that did not have one available. Remember, character name changes do not stack (you can only have one free name change at a time).
Good luck to those participating in Season 2!
