    I still play WC2 every now and then. WC3 is a different game and I'm positive many people will still play it at least until WC4 is out. However, I don't think I will ever play SC1 again seeing how SC2 is the same gameplay only better.

    As far as modders go, I don't think they will ever mod WC3 again as soon as the Galaxy Editor is out, but your question was playing. Yes, many people will still play WC3.

    I counted the Galaxy Editor indirectly.
    As I mentioned already the two different themes, it is the most important thing. It is not the question how good an editor is,
    it is a question how much I like the game(its theme etc.) to design a map for it. And you are right, most of the community will move to design maps for SC2. But why will WC3 die if there is another theme and existing maps?

    Well: Pros for SC2: New DotA, better looking TD's etc.
    3rd/1st Person Shooter will be better than WC3

    Cons: A lot of existing maps for WC3, and a remake will take sometimes
    too long for SC2. But well, in this case the most of WC3 maps will be redesigned, we will see how it changes.

    Nevertheless it feels different to play both games.

    Dota..?

    Why do everyone HATE Dota? it's just a warcraft 3 mod like all other mods. I just want an answer on that. Is it because it is so more popular than your mods?

    No =p

    I like how starcraft has been the base for the gameplay in war3 though the game was so ugly when i played it i really didn't like it that much.

    However i do like SC2 alot better because of the same fast paced gameplay and many possiblities in strategy and offcourse graphics which are actually good to look at >.<

    And on top of that custom games will be soo much better and more creative. More functions just means more types of maps or hybrids of already existing types or whatever.

    I will leave it, for sure.
    Warcraft 3 lost its magic arround one year ago.
    But the Sc2 Hi-Tech is coming up strong! :D

    Oh yeah, only when I get money to buy a new pc. My Nvidea MX4000 can't take that =/

    We might develop a StarCraft II section, but WarCraft III will NEVER die. Ever.

    Themes? Yes. That's one major reason WarCraft III will stay alive.

    Why do we hate DotA? Because you're judged at being good at Wc3 due to being good at DotA or not. And yes, it crowding the game list is annoying as well. Not because I want my game to be better, as I know it will never be, but I'd like at least a CHANCE for SOME people to try my map...

    DotA is not bad itself. Only MOST of its players and the absurd popularity of it. And I agree with most of what Hero said.

    @Etzer: Srsly, considering you obviously found the Starcraft 2 section of hiveworkshop, is that not a good indication that the hive itself will prevail? I mean, srsly, come on, Ralle is far from stupid. He's not the kind of person who wouldn't prepare for something like this, as this section itself is blatant proof of that. Show a little more faith in Ralle next time, please -.-

    Blizzard needs to organize the types of custom games for starcraft 2 in Battle net. WC3 is just a mess.

    They are, have you seen the screenshots?
    They also have a MUCH better filtering system.
    Who hosts, blizzard or users...
    What type of map, melee, TD, AoS, RPG, blahblahblah...
    How big, 1-2MB, 2-4MB, 4-6MB, 6-8MB... Blahblahblah...

    They know how bad Warcraft III failed.

    You upload maps to the database, remember? I said this on another thread I do believe. As you upload it, you categorize it.

    1 year ago, I would answer "No, never", but now, I know that Wc3 is declining, and one day will die.

    I myself am an example of this: I abandoned WC3 only to play Battle for Middle Earth 2...
