Matchmaker Queue Postings
As of today and going forward, all matchmaker pools (1v1, 2v2, 4v4 NS, 4v4 FS) will be posted in this thread. As the queues may change so will this thread to reflect that.
What is 4v4 NS and FS?
Please see this thread for details.
How do I submit a map I made into consideration for future map pools?

Matchmaker Map & Rating Systems
Each pool has a system where your rating give access to certain maps:
For the 1v1 Matchmaker Pool:
For the 2v2 Matchmaker Pool:
For the 4v4 Matchmaker Pools (both NS and FS):
Like the 2v2 matchmaker pool, your rating should exclude you from certain maps; however, there is a caveat to this: if someone participating in the match teams has a rating in a lower bracket, the system may select a map from those pools as well.
For example, if all the players are 1500+ on both team, they will only see maps in the 1000-1500 and 1500+ pools.
If all players are in a mix of ranges between 500 and 1500+, then all maps are possible for the match.
Current Matchmaker Pools (updated monthly)
