Is Warcraft 3 dead? Has LoL and DotA taken over Warcraft 3? What is your opinion and why you think this and I may create a map and complete it. If the opinions are mostly "Yes, War3 is dead" then I will not make a map. If the opinions are mostly "No, War3 is not dead." then I will consider creating a map.
P.S. Leave a note on what type of map you want me to create.
P.S.S I will not be voting.

I'm an avid tower defense player. Always enjoyed a good tower defense, and I always enjoyed the unique variations amongst them. I'd love to see another great one (I think Wintermaul is what really got me started on them, but I feel like I played Gem TD more than any of them). I think that the mazing aspect is important in these, and I've always been fond of the choice to make their pathing visible (i.e., the places you have them move to to get from the spawn point to the finish point). I think another really important thing to consider would be making spells that you can unlock or already have with either a mana cost or a cooldown, and careful timing can help to make or break a round. I think adding that extra bit of skill and finesse in there gives it a lot more depth than just building towers in the right combinations.

But yeah, I still look at Warcraft 3 as one of my top 3 favorite computer games ever, so in my eyes it ain't dead and it never will be.


Is riding a roller coaster...Wee!
Have A large amount of the People moved on to other games, or the majority of the dota players, I would say yes.

Is warcraft 3 dead? I guess its what you define "Dead". Warcraft 3 was really my game. Of all the games I played, I put in a lot of time in it, Lots of standard war3, lots of custom games, lots of dota, lots of moding.

For me, I would like to move on and play dota elseware. And I would like to play custom games on starcraft 2. But warcraft 3 still has a lot of really good custom games, starcraft 2 is getting there though.

I think its still shrinking in size. But I still have it installed on my computer, Even though I haven't played (aside from just briefly looking around) in about year.

To me its mostly a thing of the past, But I would hate to not to be able to get back on time to time, with friends. But To the world I don't think its dead, just thinned out.

Then again, I haven't played starcraft 2 in a few months. and I love starcraft 2. But I haven't had the time I used too, and am putting the time I do have else were.

Until another game comes around with a comparable map editor War3 will always have a following. The game allows normal users to do incredible things in Game Design with a tool that is included in the price of a game. Granted, it will never get the kind of following or attention that it had in its heyday but until some other tool comes along that provides the experience of actual game design that the Map Editor does, War3 will not die. IMO.

Thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate it. I might start a making a map in world edit... Just a test map to see what you guys think of it. It will be for singleplayer and multiplayer and you will just see how long you can last. I won't make a thread about the map until the vote ends. I'm only planning it and making a test map. :D
Also Fatmankev, add me on warcraft 3 (US.East) (Meriel (<-- Because I felt like it :D))

    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.

    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years

    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    happy thanksgiving folks!

    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
