    I was not aware of the 16 MB online Limit. That royally sux!
    is there a way to optimize the maps and make them under the Limit? It starts to make sense after you explained this.

    also about the Campaign idea. what if you had someone to do the Terrain work for ya? Do you have the ideas, and trigger knowledge to make it possible?

    Is there now a tool which allows you to play with bigger size? Although it may not work for battle.net, but still can be played on garena and such.

    About the terrain, you can always steal it somewhere. For Godfall, I did only 2 terrains from like 10+ maps :) and the story could be somewhere between wc2 and wc3 :)

    Actually i thought about a campaign linking wc2 to wc3 but as i said i am lacking the terrain. I do have some ideas and i guess i can create most of the triggers needed. But i do not have enough time to finish it without help.

    Okay, now that it works here's my bits!

    1. I like how you have the new models and voices and all, but I do think it'd be great if you got all the old voices into this as well.
    2. Orc Grunts are stronger than footmen...this is an annoyance as it makes it harder as humans to defend your base when you're building it up and you're pretty much screwed.
    3. I LOVE how the undead focus more on death magic than frost magic, including the new Lich, and I love the new models, but why not spawn units from other buildings besides the crypt? Like skeleton units from the Graveyard or something.

    Have yet to play night elves, but I'll give them a try sooner or later. This is pretty awesome by the by :)

    I aimed for more differences between the factions thats why footmans are weaker but faster and cheaper and Undead can only build in the Crypt while using the other buildings as tech.

    Thanks, I plan to play the new version soon.

    I really would like to hear more of your interest of making a campaign say we find a terrain mapper

    What can i not suggest ? For the start: Total imba!1!11
    Buildings paper-thin weak,
    axethrowers broken and counter everything,
    mass resurrection spam ftw,
    sneak stalkers to kill squishy necros, undead supply blocked gg,
    bandits at their camp are useless,
    seperation of mage and wizard found to be excess,
    and a boatload of other issues when it comes down to unit vs unit balance. Some units are too good not to be spammed the moment you gain access to them.

    No offense but how many games did you play and did you play vs AI only? I tested the balance with some former good Warcraft and Starcraft Broodwar players and i patched the obviously broken stuff already. If you do no believe me i am always up for a game. I admit though that undead might be imba, because i had no proper test games with the undead yet.
