    Someone already managed to found a way to make the game get 16 players.

    They did this for computer though, I'm not sure if it's possible with real players.

    the version i played only supports 6 players. so maybe it supports 6 for melee but 8 for custom.(8 was a miscalculation by me.)

    What the heck is it that you do not understand?
    Do you have any problems reading english?
    Do you just refuse to agree with the games lead designer.
    He said ATLEAST 12 PLAYERS and what you play is a freaking beta of the starcraft 2 melee. Custom games WILL support 12 players.
    You better change your mind about this or just keep quiet, you are wrong, and you know it.

    Edit:

    Woah.. just look at that... That was a game from 09, with david kim playing, and guess what... There were 16 freaking slots in the lobby.
    And if you think "well, it does not look like that anymore..".. What the heck.. The UI is not related to how many players you can be, and it would be insane to change the cap from 16 down to 8.
    Now, your eyes have seen proof, live with it.

    Now you are just trying to make me pissed, or your just stupid.
    Okay, so keep it this way:
    People have already hacked the game to have 15 computers and 1 player.
    A blue poster confirmed that you will be able to have 12 players.. IN JANUARY.

    So:
    There will be atleast a 12 players cap in custom games, and maybe 16 players.
    I am 100% sure that 16 players will be possible, it does not matter if they hack it or not, it will be possible.
    Melee matches is 8 players.

    Blizzard would have no reason to decrease the maximum amount of players from Warcraft III. The Beta is unfinished; what is present now does not reflect upon the final version. Saying otherwise is like claiming that because there is no Editor in the current build means there will never be one.

    those who say that other people are stupid are themselves strupid. the clip showed 2 actual players plus lots of observer slots. gamereactor said that the game will support 8 players. all the evidence i have say either 6 or 8. therefore i say 6 for melee, 8 for custom.

    Let him have it his way if he doesn't want to accept the facts. It's as simple as that.

    Okay now listen to me:
    I AM STUPID. Get it? I am stupid, but you are aswell, and i am totally fine with it.
    The big patch next month in the beta will contain 4v4 maps. So uhmm.. i guess that just yell "8 PLAYER CAP"... So yeah, thats about it. Melee will have 8 players cap.
    The games lead designer personally confirmed that it will infact be atleast 12 slots in custom games, we even linked you the post where he said it.
    If you believe some stupid crap with outdated information insted of blizzard themself, then you are stupid.

    And like i said before, i am stupid, and i accept it, which makes me less stupid then you.

    So they are planning on making Dota possible. Which means more than 8 players.

    But that's no fun!

    It's possible Blizzard could have changed the player cap, but it would be incredibly idiotic for them to do so. And I think I'm going to take Dustin Browder's word over someone's assumption.

    I lol'd.
