    the editor will be exactly like wc3 editor.... Only by large degree, more advanced, with more features and such... Wtf and for what reason would thye not allow importing? Where did that come from? Theres heroes in the editor, so you can make them.

    But as I said in some other topic a while ago, his map might be made in rush, with not that much of quality in it, giving us, mapmakers, a chance to parry him with our maps. Which is one of the reason I'll be switching to sc2

    Because the models in sc2 are not pixel block abominations walking around like in wc3, so it will be alot harder to create custom models

    I get what Hidan is saying, i remember mentioning it a while ago. Sc2 will be much more graphically superior so modelling and modding for it will become more complicated and time consuming.

    But people have created mods for HF 2, Battlefield... they've made some for Crysis and lord knows that things fucking insane. So it will be harder but it wont really be a problem...

    you are the silly rabbit

    nobody ever said they didnt know that Aeon of Strife was the first AoS(Aeon of Strife) and that it was on starcraft

    and there is nothing that says that there is a definate fact that DotA will appear on Sc2

    i myself will stay in wc3. i just like the fact that its medieval themed, and i truly believe the only way to play sci-fi rts games is to have a system similar to DoW.
    If people do make models for SC2, how big would they be (in filesize), considering they would need to be very clean looking, and have a variety of animations, and what would the maximum size limit for maps on bnet? we have to take these things into consideration before we rush in and start making maps.
    If dota leaves wc3, maybe wc3 will slowly recover from the Dota Pandemic, and make better custom games.reverse psychology :D

    No, they dont.

    It was indefinitely postponed, and the console section of Blizzard was closed (Which was the sole developer of ghost, as it was a *console game*), perhaps for good.

    Starcraft ghost, or at least the game we know as Starcraft ghost, will never be released. If they do decide to bring it back, they will probably have to start from scratch.

    The community will never die. Look at sc, people still play that.

    Hell, people even still play Diablo 1.

    The community won't die, it will just be greatly diminished.
