    FYI, you can download the full patches directly from Blizzard's FTP server:
    http://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/war3x/patches/pc/

    Just scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "War3TFT_121b" link that corresponds to your language.

    We need a crack anymore? The whole point of crack is to make it so that a CD is not needed for a game to load. Blizzard however was smart and so legally WC3 does not need the CD to load. Thus anyone who makes a 1.21b crack is a complete moron as it does exactly the same as the offical .exe.

    Enought about cracks, please stay on topic.

    I left the link to the tech help WC3 patch page because it has mirrors that people can download from and so will ballence the traffic more evenly for them, however Samuraid's link is probably a lot faster.

    Ummm... You guys... This isn't patches like WoW, the chances of them adding models and stuff as a patch is minimum imho, unless they release them all as seperate patches, they'll just make a Wc3 Expansion, maybe with the naga and creeps side of the story.

    Dudes, the Naga race is already ready to go (same with demon, bothy of them were originally supposed to be included in the game but were removed near the end of development), so it would take very little to establish a techtree and implement it into the game, obviously with some balancing.

    Naga are pretty much all set, yes. They lack a few heroes, some buildings, upgrades, and a couple other minor things, but I could see Naga working well.

    Demon, on the other hand, I can't see as well.

    Between the Fel Orcs and the actual demons themselves, you have the basic outline of the race that Blizzard had intended to create. I don't think it got as far along as Naga.

    Naga joined forces with the Blood Elves and Illidan though, so technically the naga race would compile of 3 heros, being Prince Kael, Illidan the Betrayer and Lady Vashj. Also they have enough buildings if you include the blood elf ones.

    Demons on the other hand wouldn't work ever so well, they consist mainly of red orcs and don't need buildings...

    EDIT: I just realised, all the demon race needs really is that demon gate, the demon race consists of a nice amount and range of units, it just seems pretty imba, they have 4 heros, 3 heavy infaltry, 2 mounted units, 1 spellcaster (not including doom guard), a builder (-.-), 1 ranged and 1 supporter... Seems pretty imba...

    I doubt they would add a new race to a melee game they've spent 5 years trying to balance. Maybe for custom gamers to use, but I would much rather seem some WE improvements instead.

    They should be focusing on their WE. There's too many flaws and/or things they could/should add. And since A LOT more people play/discuss/etc. custom maps than melee, I think they should prioritize.

    I didn't notice any problems with WEU than what we already know about. This can be further explored however.

    This patch is bugged. I can't get into wc3 without a CD all of a sudden. (It went from no-CD to CD)

    Perhaps it is a side effect by cracking first download after? lol...

    Hah, you're lucky, it won't even patch past that (9)RoundVillage map or whatever it is on my PC, and 1.20e or 1.21a won't go on -.-'

    It just prompts me to reinstall and I done that already!

    This patch upgrades Warcraft III The Frozen Throne from the previous version.

    ERROR: unable to apply patch to file 'C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\maps\FrozenThrone\(9)RoundVillage.w3x'

    RESULT: Patch failed

    I'm attempting to patch straight after installing, only because I can't be f***ed to keep downloading patches or sit there with Wc3 running downloading it...

    Perhaps you could download it using Auto-Download when you enter Battle.net? It usually download gradually patches.
