    Samwise Didier retires from Blizzard

    We get Metzen back, but we lose Sammy. Damn... I wonder if it has anything to do with Microsoft's acquisition of Blizzard.

    What about Warcraft IV?

    Good day to everyone! I feel like it's time to show some ideas that I've been boiling since I started following this site when I was younger. But first I need to tell you where all this came from: I started playing when I was 8 years old, and I had no idea how an RTS worked. So, because I...

    So why aren't you working on a Starcraft 2 custom campaign, %username?

    In case these things need explanation: -4th option in the poll ("Blizzard's policy on user-made custom content sux (all your UMS belong to Bobby K.") - SC2 Editor EULA states, that all custom content created for SC2 with its official tools automatically belongs to Blizzard. They are free to use...

    Weird Dreadlord texture

    As a follow up to the previous media piece, here's the texture (slightly rescaled and recolored to fit in with more with the default skin) put on a model. It's a real quick edit, I was just curious as to how it all would look like

    Jeff's departure from OW

    I am not sure how many of you guys are into Overwatch, but Jeff Kaplan just left Blizzard. His personal note seems to be somewhat abridged. For a person with such communication skills, it sure seems weird. The entire statement basically says everything and nothing; it's a corporate way of...

    [General] New(ish) editor rules and blizzard-owned 3rd party content

    With the new editor rules rolled out in reforged where you cannot use 3rd party content, how does 3rd party content not present in wc3 but owned by Blizzard stands out? Ex : Sound bites from WoW or WoW cinematics, WoW icons, Wc3 Reforged Icons, Sc2 Icons... Can I use them in my custom map...

    So blizzard owns my map now?

    I'm just curious if I was doing this half out of a love for world editor and half to have a prototype to pitch or show off for a kickstarter or something of the like, isn't this sort of rendered pointless considering from what I understand Blizzard owns maps created in World Editor nowadays? Do...

    Complete boycott of Warcraft III: Reforged

    It's no secret that this release has been absolutely abysmal. But what worries me is that the majority of consumers will generally get mad about something and then completely forget about it after a few weeks. This is gonna be just like Diablo 3 all over again. >Blizzard releases a buggy...

    Blizzard Campaign Mash-Up

    I had this idea when I was in the shower for a mashup of all the lores of the classic Blizzard games (Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo). The story I brainstormed is basically that the prime evils open a portal to hell in Northrend, allowing the demon armies to come out and set sail for Lordaeron...

    New Update Moved the Editor

    Good news, the World Editor still exists, it's simply been moved. It seems the new update moved the World Editor and changed the way it works a bit. However, the old trick of making a folder called [War3.mpq] with a .txt file called UI containing a line which would enable you to make sharp...

    AoE Entangling Roots

    So, I've seen plenty of threads asking about this but I've never seen a thread actually explain how to do it, I had the idea of using the Blizzard ability and swapping out the slow effect with an Entangling Roots effect, and that seems to be what most people attempted. The roots will be applied...

    Request: Rocket Rain of Fire / Blizzard Projectile

    In the spells of Rain of Fire or Blizzard they have a model in the "Buffs" section which is just a singular projectile of a fire rock or ice chunk. I'd like a model that is something similar but instead, a rocket.
