    I played this a while back and want to continue, but my 2-3 irl friends don't care anymore so I thought how about I try and join some rpg groups here on hive?

    I saw the list of people playing, and if someone is willing to tell me the usual times that people gather to play, I'd join at Garena.

    I have a 25 level Squire.

    (If you have battle.net) The best way to find a game nowadays is by going to http://makemehost.com/games.php.

    Ctrl+F - type in Gaias and join one of those 2 games.

    I don't have BNet account. I currently have Garena and Game Ranger, but I can download other software if needed (anything except pay for a BNet account)

    What is entconnect?

    Few reasons:

    #1 - I'm not making money, so my budget is limited. The least thing I want is to spend money on games.
    #2 - BNet as a service is free, but you cannot play Warcraft III custom maps online. You can play any other Blizzard game, even WoW and Diablo have free endless trials and you can have Starcraft II free and play custom games all day everyday for no price.
    #3 - Cuz I don't have to. There are so many alternatives and its only matter of time to find a group of people to play maps on the same platform.

    Hive has nothing to do with BNet account. I have been happily playing wc3 on Game Ranger for years.

    Also, when I would have money to spend on whatever, I will consider it heavily because as you say, I love warcraft so much I may even purchase the game with a BNet key out of sheer respect for Blizzard. Its just that the time isn't now.

    Those are some good reasons. I'll hook you up with the CD-Keys for free, and welcome to Battle.net!

    Sending you the keys in a PM in a few minutes.

    He means the battle.net platform is free. Just like how the Steam platform is free.

    That's because you can't. You need a RoC and a tFT key to play war3 custom maps on battle.net. For reference, you can play starcraft II custom maps on battle.net with no Key.

    Sure it is possible to play war3 custom maps for free (technically illegally)... just not on battle.net
