    Yes it's great, because it is made on Starcraft II engine.

    its very decently compiled. but.. as stryder said, its made on sc2. a lot easier to make shiny terrain. im not very impressed to be honest.

    It's a more powerful engine producing more impressive effects. I like the design but it's not really that impressive. Easily beatable by any of our terrainers here if we were to use the SC2 engine.

    Gentlemen, your terrain is a falsehood, produced to look pretty from one angle, for one screenshot.

    Mine is an entirely playable canvas, fully interactive, created to be beautiful from all angles by the golden god of terraining Ababmer.

    Prostate yourselves before me

    You are mistaken if you think our terrainers can't produce insane quality playable terrains

    Lol. I hope you're being sarcastic.

    You know, showcasing your terrain here maybe could be acceptable and all even considering we have a specific forum for Starcraft related stuff. But in this case, there is no point in showcasing & comparing with Warcraft III terraining/terrainers.

    Yes sure you did the great one, i am impressed and dont mind what Whitefang showed to you, yes it is incomparable to Warcraft III but what we are expecting in your terrain is "more creative, something new to our eyes and does not look like what blizzard already did".

    Oh and, the way you talk to us feels arrogant, calm down.

    You can freely post some screenshots here if you can, we want to see some more. (If you're going to showcase to us new screenshots/another video, please try pulling the camera abit farther from the ground, the angles on your video is so close to the ground therefore we can't see more of its beauty, that's why we feel it lacks something)

    Wait, you made this terrain yourself and named the thread
    "best terrain artist in the world"?

    Do you even realize how pretentious that sounds?

    This thread is hilarious. I'll start every showcase in the future with "I'm the best (xxx) in the world.". Then proceed to ignore all comments to the contrary. "How would they know? Afterall, they're not the best (xxx) in the world, like I Am!"

    My favorite is the part where lightning struck next to the marine and he didn't give a flying bazoongie, it was hilarious.

    No one can withstand your might, o' great lord of the babmerkin!

    Wow. I see no reason for us to even try and create terrains anymore. We've reached the pinnacle of art perfection. Thank you babmer. Thank you.

    Gentlemen i understand you're in awe.

    It is important you remember to breathe, and regain your composure when viewing the artistic majesty that is my creations.

    Here, unto you i bestow another:
