I forget, i know i heard a long time ago map size was increased from only 8MB to something larger to host on bnet but what patch was it and how big can the map be now and still be hosting on bnet multiplayer?

Most the host bots limit you to 100 kb/s download speed, so it would take you over 20 minutes to download a 128 MB map. For player hosts or unlimited bots then it's less an issue, unless you're unfortunate enough to not have access to fast download speeds where you live.

It's generally a good idea to keep your filesize low. I try to stay under 4mb personally.
