    If blizzaard would ever make a WC4 , what would you like them to change?
    What do you want to be added?
    I would want them to change the terrain system. this one is a bit . . how should i say this . uh . .a bit , well , the new one should be complexer.
    At least alot of chaanges to the world - editor.
    And a fifth race , the burning legion.
    And more look on Hero's and some aspects of RPG games in the game , naval units , and a better look on Custom-maps (less melee)

    What do you think/want/expect/suggest?

    HERE IT GOES

    better hero system, that is you can keep the wc3 hero system for melee maps but for scenarios you should be allocated stat points instead of it auto building.

    Arthas/Lich King should be unkillable when using him (like a really easy first campaign/tutorial) and have sylvanus' people as the undead.

    Campaign heroes should have unique normal abilities, e.g. Tyrande can set an ambush by teleporting 6 units to either her location or any locaiton on the map. Arthas can charm undead to his side. Malfurion can summon spirit furbolgs to attack his enemies etc.

    Cooler hero models, the hero in the opening video scene of wc3 has a sweet looking guy that stands on the rock. That should be a hero skin.

    Secret campaign, just something fun from blizzard, like play as creeps or play as a hero normal unit (hero footman, hero ghoul etc)

    Improved inventory, a hero can only carry one of each item type except for certain classes, there are class specific items and each hero is given a health and mana potion at the beginning. If anyone has ever played warlords battlecry you'll know what i mean.

    Simpler editor, e.g. creating dialogues isn't hard but it would be much easier if you could just create a trigger that was:

    Dialogue - Create Dialogue with (6) buttons.
    Dialogue - set button(1) name of (last created dialogue) to dialoguebutton


    but much simpler than that, it would save a lot of time even though it's not necessary.

    A model editor, i know this is a bit much but a wc model editor in the world editor that let's you import other models and use them to edit the wc models as well as a simple color job on models.

    Unit experience,
    Every 2-5 kills a unit gains a small bonus(1-3) to damage or life(20) or something.

    Anyway, that's my 2 cents

    Better support for wargame-y features, like having support for squads of units as well as individual units, or better terrain-based advantages.

    Re: HERE IT GOES

    Rather than do what you said, the WE should have two modes: Simple and Advanced.

    Simple would be essentially an easier version of the WCIII editor (like a cross between that and SC's Campaign Editor), and the Advanced should be at least 2x as powerful as the current editor (which is extremely powerful to begin with, but there are a few other things that I'd like to be able to edit that you can't).

    i dunno about WC4, they already made WoW and if they changed the storyline or sumthing without doing that to WoW i think it would seem a little strange... but i really have no idea of what im talking about really, i might be wrong, might be able to change it.. i would like more campaigns and prolly some melee maps with stuff like quests and stuff

    Wc4? Nope, try WoW expansions forever. The likelyness blizzard will make a Wc4 is almost none. MMORPGS brought them way to much cash for them to even consider doing a Wc4. It will be a very long time until theirs a Wc4, if ever. Expect a WoW2 or SC MMORPG, or even a new diablo before a Wc4 comes out.

    About Diablo yes. You are right. I did read in a newspaper and on one very trusted website that there will be a Diablo 3 before Warcraft 4.

    Wc4 has a good chance of coming out, but we will have to wait much much time...

    I would like to see many new playable races: Humans, Dwarves, Blood Elves, Orcs, Darkspear Trolls, Bloodhoof Tauren, Stonemaul Ogres, Forsaken, Lich King's Undead, Skeletons (maybe), Night Elves, Druids, Naga, Draenei, Fel Orcs, Demons, Mur'guls, Corrupted Ancients.

    Triggers: Everything that exists on World Editor, but cooler spells, a new way of designing cool spells with effects without needing JASS (I know it's also possible on GUI but it needs alot of work), the functions to change a unit's name, and also a unit upgrading ability, like gerbal_warfare said, to make a unit stronger when it owns other units. Easier and simplier way of making AIs.

    It would be also cool that Blizzard always sends a map which we can test for every function. I usually test all the functions in a random map to know what I can do with GUI.

    What I want most is 3d pathing, so units could, for startters, move both under and over bridges, I imagine it could theoretically create problems for camera, if it's used to make caves and such, but other than that I wouldn't mind higher cliff limits, and ramping that could sit along cliff sides, as the difference could be monumental, also, a "wall" terrain or building would be nice, with the animation something like what was on War2.

    2 of my big suggestions have already been said (using the editor to make models and spells), maybe make the models in the editor (that are 'new custom unit' based) unarmed, maybe even unarmored, so you can equip them yourself.
    Well, basically keep the style of the editor the same but add ALOT more features, If they stuff the campaign, at least if the editor rocks you can salvage it.

    Oh, and make Arthas more dramatic, FT disappointed me by Arthas's lack of uh emotion.

    I don't think Arthas will be very dramatic, since he's now the Lich King. I'm fearing that Warcraft 4 won't have the normal Undead race but the Forsaken. The units walking under bridges is also a good idea.

    New Races Besides Humans, orcs, night elfs, and undead: Draeni, Naga, Demon/Burnin Legion, Creeps.

    World Editor- Make it easier, easier to customize, new terrain. Easier Triggers

    Game- Better graphics, even though WC3 are good. Female Peasants AND Male :) Units grow "level" or rank as they kill and survive, evn though that might be hard, better yet ranks.

    And that is it for now
