Does anyone actually still play or do people just come here out of nostalgia?

    That's very much the case for me.

    Warcraft III games will always hold a special place in my heart; the memories made here throughout the years will never be recreated. But my first love that brought me here was my love for custom maps - a love thoroughly supplemented by the Hive. Now, after years, Warcraft III just does not have the same appeal any longer and the Hive is just an occasional trip down memory lane.

    Do people here still play Warcraft III maps?

    Yes there are still people playing War3 like there are in C.S 1.6. Just look at our huge community.

    Well, to be honest...

    neither. I come here mainly for the Roleplay and friends like @WhiteFang !

    Though at times I would indulge myself in the Maps and Models sections and try to rummage my way to find a good enough singleplayer/AI map and also, window-shopping at the models :p

    I mod the game. But I do not play over battle net or garena etc.
    It happens that I play some single player maps though, still, it's rare.

    Still working to finish a campaign I started a while ago and post on the forums from time to time.
     
  7. I play my maps when I finish them on MP. Though it's been years since I've finished one...

    Interesting question.

    I haven't legitimately played Warcraft 3 in... Years? I mean I've tested maps I've worked on, I've run through the projects of others... And I'd be remiss if I didn't include, at least once or twice in the last 5 years, a quick jaunt onto Battle.net to keep it active. So sure, I may have played a map or two in the last (half-)decade. But other than that?... Nawp.

    Don't get me wrong, I love this game. I love so much about it, but the hard facts of life (for me) are that I am terrible at RTS's & don't really play them much for fun. I really love the campaigns & do that OK, but past that, I barely if ever play f'real.

    I mod, though, still to this day (though it's increasingly slow, increasingly off-and-on, and all that). So I'm here on the Hive pretty much entirely for modding purposes. I'm here because this is where people are; all the other big modding sites (I know of) are long gone. If it wasn't a ghost town, I'd be @ Wc3C.net still. But alas.

    Well warcraft is.... timeless I guess

    there will always be people who still play it but at the same time it can only be played a few hundred times before feeling black and white

    I know the whole reason why me and my friends used to play lan was for warcraft, but then after about 3 years of that it got boring

    now we play warhammer, shooters and racers

    To prevent the death of warcraft 3,i highly suggest to delete this threader.
    The game itself isnt boring,just the gameplay is boring,so if someone makes a map with an gameplay that is good enough to beat a gameplay like Dota's,then it would bring warcraft back to new life.
    So do a map with an awesome gameplay,before i do it.
    Just saying,dont forget to share the gameplay on every gaming site u find.

    You know gaming life is much more than the brainwashing DotA, right? Have you even taken a look at what maps this site has stored? There are so many game genres here... Heck, even Vampirism, Tree Tag, Elevator Murderer and other maps of this type became a game (eg: Dead by Daylight).
