    1. I'm not sure, you even know what subject we are on.

    2. It's spelled "Laziness"

    3. The editor doesn't need to be learned, I already know the editor like the back of my hand, and it sucks.
    Example, you have two cars. A Mercedes, and a Prius, the Mercedes will get me there faster with the expense of gas mileage, the Prius will just get me better gas mileage, now if you are in a race, which car would you want to have?

    I don't think you get what i mean. It has nothing to do with mileage. It has to do with the driver. A driver that is used in using automatic cars and is not used in non-auto cars, will perform worse with the latter. You're in the first category.

    By the plans Blizzard has set, they plan on adding 2 more expansions in WoW, and Titan. And there's an expansion to Diablo III, and there's Legacy of the Void.

    Now back on-topic then... Galaxy Editor's immense complexity and lack of user-friendliness has definitely dampened SC2's modding success quite a bit.

    Despite all of the new features in SC2 I still think WC3 and World Editor kicks ass, and there are a lot of people who say the same thing. Plus I would assume that this being a WC3 website is going to cause problems in the process of switching over to SC2 in time, too many people are still attached to WC3 at the moment.

    "The Hive is a WarCraft 3 AND StarCraft 2 modding community."
    There is no limitation to warcraft 3 whatsoever, and you cannot call it such. And it's not limiting the Sc2 section, more like boosting it from the ones moving from Wc3 to Sc2.

    They do, but you can avoid that by using mods. I think the limit is 10.

    The limit was raised to 20 a little while ago.

    Oh well, i don't even use maps as storage anymore, i only publish mods. My maps only contain stuff like local triggers that aren't used in other maps using the same mod.

    uh

    ooook

    I'm not really in any rush to start editing on SC2 just because it takes so much longer to make maps compared to WC3. Ease of use is important, otherwise everyone would be making their own stand-alone 'maps' independent of SC2 and WC3. Mapping is a recreation at the end of the day.

    It's not new games, its host bots making it impossible to fill a genuine game with players, this started the decline of the player base and has only snowballed to result in fewer people, IMO TFT is unplayable and blizzard has stopped supporting wc3 and will not address the host bot issue. WC3 Ladder will not be at blizzcon this year which shows that activision doesnt want to support a game that no longer brings them profit. personally i would pay money for a new DLC that removed host bots even if it added little other content

    To be honest all blizzard games have notoriously low system reqs, i could link you an 80-100$ graphics card that could flawlessly run sc2. I don't think SC2 is a replacement for wc3 because the community and the modding simply arent the same. I dont enjoy SC2 custom games, the editor is less accessible and it doesn't allow the same type of freedom for map creation as wc3 world editor did. sure there were dozens of bad maps and LOAP clones, but the laissez faire attitude made for a stronger community as a whole.

    DOTA2, HoN, and LoL will cause the DOTA spamming of the games list to end, but DOTA isnt the problem. The list has been cluttered with dota games since 2007 at least, but it was still playable. The true cause of the community's decline is the spamming of host bots. These games dont go away if people dont join, there could be 2-3 people in each bot game but they'll never connect with eachother and get a full house. RoC is still playable because there are less bots but i am afraid even this will change. Is there any action we can take as a community to stop the spamming of host bots? I've emailed blizzard tech support, who told me to post on the forum, after accumulating dozens of posts against host bots on the forum, blizzard still has no comment. We need to launch a campaign in favor of stopping host bots, lots of emails to technical support, lots of activity on the BNET forum. If we had done this sooner, the community would still have a chance. There is no replacement as of yet to wc3 for custom maps, the battle chest is 20$ and still on sale at every major retailer. As online games age, they dont disappear, they simply move to different countries where they become more accessible with the passage of time. WC3 can still be a viable game if only the host bots strangling custom gaming could be removed.
