If you're good enough, you can design a really good game using nothing but the data editor.

That's all I have to say about it.

Well that.. And it's not user friendly at all..

Starcraft and warcraft are 2 VERY different games.

Warcraft II was pretty much like Starcraft. Warcraft III on the other hand is a very different story.

Wc3 focused on very small armies, with the primary focused being you're hero, of which you have to micro a lot. Its a lot slower pace.

Starcraft 2 is the opposite. Sc2 focuses on large armies, without a primary focused unit (Heroes), with a fast paced battles, of which have to be strategically planned, other wise its just a big mess.

In the long run, Sc2 requires more effort and strategy than wc3. Not to mention its a lot faster pace.

Bloodcount- You are recommending a game not even in the same genre, how irrelevant :p.

And he is right, Dota, which is a AOS (Aeon of Strife), didn't actually start on wc3. The concept anyway.

Dota was REALLY good on RoC, because it was very unique, including with how things were when it was just RoC. Then TFT came out, and that uniqueness went poof. What kept it alive and soaring was how bloody simple of a game it was. Very easy to play and learn. The downside was it had a VERY shitty community, this cannot be disputed. Also was the fact that it hogged 90% of the hosts, which leaves other maps that were far unique and better, to the sewer, to never be seen.

Thats one thing I love about Battle.net 2, and I hope in a sense it stays. How things are hosted. So instead of seeing 500 Dota hosts and nothing else. Its a single category, and you randomly join one, which is also very good.

Bad thing is, you'll only find your game on the list if you have a lot of people hosting the map.


Anyway, stop bitching about the editor, you guys aren't giving it a hint of chance. Wc3 and Sc1 was only good after x years. And if WE is better, then why is it we see maps that would take years before we would see in WE, yet in Sc2 we see them in a matter of a couple weeks, if not less.

Lot of type of things you could do in Sc2 would take a LONG time to do in WE, and be a LOT of hard work, yet in Sc2, its far easier.

Yea, we expected it to be a easy learning curve, we expected everything to be simple. Shit we were wrong. How do we fix this? We adapt.

Who cares of its a steep learning curve? It means less noobs will flood crap maps. Not to mention all it takes is time, just like wc3. And it doesnt take long to know what everything means and goes.

The popularity system is what really prevents crap maps from going anywhere. They'll start at the bottom and never move up. But...I agree with you on the point.

The popularity system is what'll keep some great maps from going anywhere as well. As well as maps with potential. :-/

If we could get about 500 people telling others not to play a specific map, then we'll be able to play a new batch of maps we haven't seen yet.

GL. No chat channels... yet :thup:

Let me fix that for you.

They said they would implement chat channels(or something very simmilar) but not by release. This is fine by me because they got lots of other stuff to work on as well. Things that I'd rather have take priority over chat channels.

Going against the popular vote never works. Majority will still rule. It's different if you have about 500 people telling others to PLAY a specific map (better yet, hosting it).

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
