    No they will not, they are seperate entities, and anyway,
    Ralle already said that he is embracing sc2.

    Out of a pot of 100 uses all of those are being added to the the hive to contribute to it. artists work across game lines, some modelers may, even mappers too.


    by denying that aspect you may remove interest in this site.

    No, WC3 and SC2 must be equal.
    Right now because it's expensive, heavy requirements and new, it means few player.
    So when we take SC2 normally as WC3, we can 50-50 them.

    By the way, if you had actually read my post, you would see that i said i was not going to leave.

    Sc2 won't destroy whats still there, people will only convert if they want to, you speak of it like a disease, we are all living breathing people who make our own decisions.

    This is where you got it wrong, pal. THW is for War3 and SC2 and Ralle is doing this nice job to make a good looking SC2 section in the future. I say you get used to having both games or you all who can't accept that there will be SC2 are free to leave.

    Did it occur to anyone that this doesn't have to be quantified?
    Couldn't you just throw some fucking Sc2 contests in the forum?
    Would that do any bad to the Wc3 contests anyway?

    Look, guys... If our SC2 section will grow to be a semi-separated forum with full sections, contests, discussions and etc, more people from other sites and from all over the Internet might find us and join to mod SC2(they might be completely unfamiliar with WC3!). Although I agree that some users will convert to StarCraft 2 simply because it's newer and has better options, I do not think it will kill Warcraft 3. Many old fans of WC3 are still here and probably ain't planning to leave. The WC3 contests are as successful as ever. And people can actually mod both WC3 and SC2, take modelers for example. We can't do much for SC2 as not a lot of tools are out yet, but as soon as it will become possible, I'm sure that we could just model both for WC3 AND for SC2.

    Wise words, Debode, but do you agree that the contests should not be rationalized like this?

    I think contests should stay mostly WC3, but that's because the only contests I enter are modeling ones and I don't really know how to model for SC2 yet, nor do I have the tools.

    Well, it really doesn't matter to me. I do not particularly care about spell contests and map contests and whatnot unless they give amazing results. And in that case, an equal amount means more awesome stuff, means better. So yeah, 50\50 I suppose.

    I don't believe that will have any impact on the balance between SC2 modders and WC3 modders, though.

    SCII terrain contests wont hurt anyone. If a guy likes terraining he'll terrain on both game contests, SCII and WC3.

    This thread should just be ended and the mods should render judgement before a flame-war starts, I would assume the mods already know what they are going to do along with Ralle of course.

    All I'm saying is after a while SC2 will over-take WC3 and this site will completely convert to SC2 and WC3 modders will be fucked. I just don't want to see that happen.

    Not so true there, Warcraft III survived for many years compared to the old Starcraft, so I presume it'll stay on since Players are more used to its editor and programs.

    Starcraft 1's popularity has lasted far longer than Warcraft 3

    Because its an older game.
    Warcraft three will be a game modded for years to come. nothing we do here will change that.

    SCII won't take over WCIII, WCIII will last many years from now.

    50/50 from me..
    SC2 and WC3 are different
    SC2 = Modern Warfare RTS
    WC3 = Medieval RTS
    balance are the best..than sacrifice one of the best RTS ever(WC3 and SC2)
