    Technically, any game with models is 3D. I guess Warcraft III is as well.

    I thought Ramza suggested that wc3 wasn't a 3D game. When he said that he never played 3D games, I thought he was referring to MMORPGs. He said the wc3 gameplay is so good, but then said he never plays 3D games. Did I misinterpret?

    ok, wc3 has 3D models, but it hasnt got a real height, like buildings woith roofs, or under the ground isnt possible to, the units and doodads r the only 3D objects on the game, the rest 2D

    Any real 3D strategic game?

    Homeworld (the only game you really can call "3D")
    Warzone 2100
    Supreme Commander (release in 2007)
    Earth 2150/2160
    etc.

    Although Supreme Commander is the only one you can call a strategic game, all in all WC3 and other games are tactic games (but that's another story).

    Ramza the roofs and such is not a requirement for something to be classified as 3d. Not is real use of height either. Those things aren't not a required to be used just becouse they are fully possible. It's just that Blizzard didn't want to have it in wc3. It's like saying that every projectile should be 3d-simulated (glory to Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander) just becouse it's possible with 3d. Take gryphos attacking each other for example, if a unit comes in the way it wont be hit unless the units are ordered to cancel their current attack and attack it instead. I wouldn't require big changes, but again Blizzard din't didn't find it neccesary.. Actually roof and house levels can be compared to that a units arm can sitck out from the body. See there is a height level between the ground and his arm so it's nothing but true 3d.

    yes there is a height difference between the arms of units and the ground, but i mean, heights so u can walk underneath it. and heights are needed for 3D games cuz 3D without heights its 2D right? but yes i know wc3 is 3D, read my last topic and u c why i like wc3-like games more

    Perfect. :D

    As long as there is 3d directoions to move in and every point requires 3 coordinates it's fully 3d.

    3D RTS games do work out fine, if you dont believe me, go play Black & White 2, then come back and tell me that 3d RTS games are bad...

    The most probable is that they are making Diablo III. I think there might even be profes these days. And after that they will probably make Wow 2, and then an expansion for it.

    -.- its not that simple

    For one thing, ive heard their bringing about a Diablo3, heres my source of this-
    http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/index.php?s=0a56d67a9662e60f93ecb487f800c507&showtopic=2916

    For 2, it all depends. What does Starcraft have to go on? they could expand it so much with maybe new races, as far as i remember all the zergs are officially gone in Brood War so there'd have to be a new evil and maybe a few other races. Warcraft4? whadya mean by that? some people call WoW warcraft4
    Do you mean Warcraft4 as in another RTS or another MMORPG or soemthing other even! Diablo3, i seriously dun see how it could keep going on even though their making one supposedly( hey at least this link is more then a rumor, its a direct source, so use it as so or itll start getting passed around and changed.

    Ehm check this forum about Stacraft II. And there is many things to continue on in Starcraft. And the zergs are not gone. It was they who were "victorious" in Brood War. What is gone is the UED fleet.
