Looks sick, I had a similar idea, but my SC2 editing skills are.... not good :p

is there anything else to show but fighting? how about a shop system? party system? whatever system? like all the other rpgs use to show off?

Heavy is credit to team!
It is pretty impressive.

But that's about it since it really is just an imitation and SC2 editor is too limited to get it anywhere near as good as the actual WoW.

I will work hard tomorrow
Meh, could just be the automated removal from youtube that took the video accidently down, there are other World of Starcraft videos that they didn't remove, doesn't make much sense to delete only one of them...

Also:
They put out a tool to let us do anything and then shut us down when we get too good with it?
:rolleyes:

Apparently you're only allowed to use the name "World of Starcraft" as long as your project doesn't get somewhat popular.

I'd just change the name of the project and make a new trailer.
The weird thing is how Blizzard is acting, they have never shown real care or interest in the custom game field. I could call my game World of Starcraft easily in Battle.net 1.0 and it wouldn't have been a big deal? I mean I am pretty sure there is a World of Starcraft on Wc3.

It really confuses me how Blizzard is acting, because if they want their systems to be more like Valve they can't be so fickle when it comes to Custom Map designers.

MIZ, I shall explain.

First of all this isn't blizzard. this is Activision. There is a difference- Blizzard is a company that makes few but quallity games. Activision spams games. The reason why this pissed activision is because they are affraid of a new dota- it is a phenomenom- a small mod, with MILLIONS of fans, one of the biggest COMPETITIVE games. And they have NO CONTROL. You have told me that you haven't played SCII. I, as a player with close to a 1,000 league games played (and a couple of hundret custom games) I can tell you that the SCII melee is the finest RTS game I have ever played. The mixure between a city builder, micro and macro is just amazing. ( BlooDCounT <- SCII fanboy) Only the old Command and Conquer can be compared to SCII (because you have brutal battle systems there, the SCII is a bit too common)



My point is, too much work and resourses have been put into this game so that would be the leading competitive cyber sport in the world, so that some modders can abuse the ideas from BLIZZARD's WOW and shake the throne of SCII.

Or the shortest version-> Blizz doesn't want to split the SCII gamers, not until the final expansion has come out.

The video on youtube went viral and there were several articles about it on the Internet. Some writers misunderstood the entire thing and made it sound like a standalone game. That's probably what got Blizzard's attention and made them react.

Anyways, it's all cleared out now and they're flying the creator down to Blizzard HQ and giving him a guided tour.

Not going to defend what blizzard did, but a lot of news articles spreading this around DID NOT MENTION that it was a sc2 mod. Blizzard usually contacts the modders\takes the map of B.net if they have an issue - I'm betting it was some guy in the Blizzard Activision legal department who didn't really know what sc2 looked like. (Taken from his thread: "We talked for a while and apparently some people from Blizz were concerned I was developing the game somehow outside of SC2.")

Not that they could really say "Ooops, we were wrong" at that point. The guy was getting job offers and things like that.
 

iPeez

Hot food far all world wide!
From what I have heard and read, Blizzard do not plan to create their own WoS (World of Starcraft) and that is why they haved called in this mod's developer(s?) to a meeting. They are actually planing (from what I have heard, but rumors will allways be rumors) to support this mod with money, serverhosting and additional models. Hope this is a true rumor!

Yeah I also heard that Michael Jackson will do the voice acting for Zeratul.

Linux is only free if your time is worthless.
Blizzard supporting a mod with money, servers and models? Yea right..

They didn't even do that for DotA. They won't do it for WoS either.

    Hm, it is now harder to type anything on an Android phone. Pressing Backspace or Enter keys will dismiss the Android keyboard for some reasons.
