    A very rough Ralle news post about some breaking Warcraft news!

    I was sent a picture from a Chinese presentation about Warcraft 3 patch 1.31.


    More will most likely surface about what exactly is coming and what is not, but it's definitely exciting.

    Lua support sounds very interesting. I wonder how that is going to work.
