They have released a topic on this.
They don't want to release custom maps due to the risk of spreading virus and so on.
So when they have made a epicfirewall/reduced the chances of spreading virusezzz throught theire systems they can release the button: "PLAY CUSTOM MAP"
Work in progress.

Throwing in a map editor in a games does not mean sudden success, unless you work your ass off on it, like Blizzard can afford to do. Also you need a very big userbase for it to be worth making good maps.
I got HoN for the DotA play. Sc2 would fill the custom map "hole" in time. And it has.

wtf? there's only 1 map that is popular right now. Cmon S2 get off your horse!
Wanna diss delusional people? Make Zeph, Chronos, Tempest, Magebane and Electrican heroes only available to PREPURCHASE or only 30$
what i think would be cool is if they implemented it as almost like a "skin" type of thing. This would make it so you could play the caldavar map but with different skins (creeps look the way the custom skin is, enviroment, etc...) This would me it would not majorly change the gameplay, just the look, and you could easily have it in a "custom skin" folder. This would also mean that only you could see your "skin" and your team/enemies wouldnt unless they have downloaded and applied said "skin". Although its not quite the same, it would be a fun implement.
yeah but after dota2 arrived they will focus on that or they are DEAD !
So, just because i'm bored by the dota-style gameplay and put off by the community (with useless comments like yours) i can't wait for the main feature i paid for?
Strange thing you say here
come on S2...
a 1 lane map should be nice for "only mid" games. =((
Actually some old warcraft custom maps such as warlock, pudge wars, vamprism, tower defenses even castle wars. However this game is dedicated to DotA..
Dota 2 Smite
The Holy Trinity
atleast they could do a megacreeps defense.
As many others have pointed out; this is a stupid move by S2. I have several friends in the SC2-community who spends more time playing custom games with lolwtf-modes than playing the game as it's "meant to be played" (1v1).
Also, look at WC3. Both Savage and HoN wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the modding-community.
HoN is basicly 5v5-only, and people will eventualy get tired of that. And when they do, they turn to other games, but if S2 would let you (the modders) being able to create custom maps/games, we wouldn't have to turn to other games.
Though, the worst part is that S2 doesn't even realize this.
