How how much imports may I have?
You are limited to the file table the mpq can store in WC3. SC2 and WoW MPQs allow more elements but you are looking at the thousands (even more in WoW and SC2 mpqs).
How big can a map maximally be?
Its based on how many bits the MPQ uses to store address locations and block tables and stuff. I believe it was caped at a GB or so odd in WC3 while in SC2 and WoW it is probably a lot of giga bytes.
ow much must the map be to host it on battlenet?
8 MegaBytes.
