    I doubt they are lying though, because even small changes like increasing the map size limits would be reasonable. Anyways, a cinematic contest would be great to bring out our movie makers:)

    Warcraft IV wont ever exist. The continuation of the Warcraft Universe is WOW, and it went so damm well that I dont think theyll even think of Warcraft IV.


    @Miss_Foxy na dude, they won't ever update it. Ever. They would be wasting time, for the updates must be free, and they wouldn't gain anything. If Blizzard doesn't gain in an activity, it is not done. Period.

    That's just not true. WoW, while being constantly improved has the same 10 year old engine to work with. Warcraft 4 is quite a possible reality, though we'll have to wait a year or two more for it to be announced alone, and then another ten (as Blizzard has a habit of doing) for it to be released.

    They did say they'll make an RTS after WoW in order to put the storyline straight after The Emerald Dream though, so we could expect a Warcraft IV sometime later.
    Anyways, back to topic, should we make a thread for a contest?

    I don't know if there ~ever was lots of cinematics, but now when you have freetime and would watch one cinematic, you hardly can find a new one to watch.
    ~Or, if you find one, it lasts for one minute.

    my project basically hinges on cinematics of high quality.

    I'll bet the team'd be up to a few promotional cines.

    ive been working on the Bloodline a little bit here and there.. but im no where near as dedicated as in the earlier episodes. im not as inspired to do wc3 mapping as i was when i started and i find little reason to be, other than the few fans im sorry to say this to.

    I'll be working on one too, it'll be ready right after my exams:)
    The Bloodline was awesome, I really hope you'll continue it, I'm still awaiting the next one.

    I can make a cinematic no problem, making a good one however.. ehh... lol Still if everyone wants to get a cinematic contest rolling, maybe even an unofficial one just to get some support? It would really be awesome to see the cine section go out with a bang. Or reignite that pilot light that's about to die out.

    Well, if it'll be released in 2022, god knows if Blizzard will be still working on Warcraft, or if any current player will be in eleven years time...

    Don't worry, Blizzard isn't dumb enough to just depend on one game. Anyways, get a cinematic contest rolling, somebody.

    They are definitely not working with wc4 before they are finished with the StarCraft 2 campaigns.

    my map: Defend the Castle uses cinematics as the Intro!
    maybe map makers should make cinematic Intros!

    It's not, actually. Cinematic intros are nothing. Hell, in multiplayer maps there a bother more than anything else.
