    LOL! Amongst all of great coders around here and they select him? the developer of WEX himself?! What a perfect choice!


    Well for me I have to get through much longer path to get to where you are now. Anyway, congrats, @MindWorX, and be proud! :grin:

    Does this mean blizzard officially supports a non-standard editor?

    No, it means that custom content will become Blizzard content and therefore added to the original editor.

    Cool. Hope that means we can see a smoother, better running editor soon! Massive maps like LTA, LTF have been slowed down to a crawl due to engine limtations.

    Congratulations!
    As "one of us", I hope you will help bring into the Editor what WarCraft modders and fans have only dreamed of few years back.

    Best of luck with this exciting position!
