    As explained earlier, If we are using a hosting bot, we don't need all on the same gateway, just to all be on BNet, But I have a Northrend account in the event we do not have a BoT

    not as much if the bot is hosting, if someone else was hosting it would probably become pretty laggy late game. We do fun maps on BNet about once a month. WaterKnight sets it up and gets bots to host the games.

    at makemehost.com you don't even need to register or anything and ent only requires an account to use their bots.

    I didn't think the Idea was for customs but for ladder style matches. A bot wouldn't necessarily remove the lag anyway since your ping will be determined based on your distance from said bot.

    it was originally, but so many people changed it into something way more, and besides a bot can host melee maps as well

    I don't really playing ladder but I assume it would limit it to our team vs random team on ladder. Also a lot of people were in favour of altered melee or at least custom melee maps.

    Naturally there will still be higher latency if you join from another realm but it's not as much as if it would have been a player hosting.

    Basically the ladder games will be harder to play due lag, by swapping to different realms.
    That's a pain in the ass.

    If you don't want to play on BNet, then that's fine. The rest who do, lets set a date & Time!

    Played a few games with a few friends on BNet today, was nice to meet ppl and play. (Games we hosted by "Makemehost" bots)

    EDIT: We did a few Games:
    I heard some did Bastions Fall, but I was too busy in ORPG

    I am European and I play on northrend, down to custom maps and ladder too, though the ladder delay is unbearable I think.
    Is there a skype group? Add me, my acc on skype is drahovszkymark

    Not so much as a group, but i will certainly Start one. Shall we call it "The Hive"?
    Like I said apparently people use skype more then I thought!

    I didn't start this thread, I only wanted to see some action more then talking weeks to discuss it. I Had no intention of taking it over, but I will if no one else wants to lead this endeavor. I just want a time/date set up where people log on to warcraft 3 (often). I know its not played as active as it used to be, but gathering friends on Monday night, or Tuesday night (These are just examples, not actual set days) would be nice to know "hey there is a few friends going to be on for game night, SO I can log on and play"

    I'm pretty much up for anytime, even when I'm not online I keep tabs on makemehost.com/games and login if I see someone hosted a niche map.
