Budding game developers and the modding community just got a big boost:Blizzard (http://massively.joystiq.com/tag/blizzard) has made access to The Arcade in StarCraft 2 (http://massively.joystiq.com/tag/starcraft-2/) completely free for everyone. That means that customs maps and modes developed for StarCraft 2(as well as Blizzard's other games: Starjeweled, Auir Chef, and Left 2 Die) can now be accessed by anyone, not just the players who already own the game and use the platform regularly. Blizzard is basically giving the community the tools to build their own games and enlarging the pool of potential players -- all for no fee whatsoever. Check out the details in the videos below, then grab thestarter edition (https://us.battle.net/account/sc2/starter-edition/) and let your creative juices flow.
