    Found the first bug:
    In the Trigger Editor, it is currently not able to change the color of a player to any of the new ones.
    A possible workaround I have not tested yet is using "Change Player Color to Color of Player X" instead.
    Already wrote it in Hive's Discord, also sharing it here because that should be adressed before the "full"
    release of this patch.
    I am a color-greedy bastard.

    I believe @TriggerHappy is going to set up a bug report thread for Blizzard to look at :)

    These are incredible news indeed!

    This will revolutionize the entire game! Now we are capable of creating far better maps and campaigns.

    One of the things that have always annoyed me while playing was the somewhat small food limit. Now we can have truly enormous battles!

    OH MY GOD.

    I wasn't expecting much, just some natives for jass and gui, but damn this is just too much. Just think of the maps we could make with all these changes.

    I am extremely pleased.

    The only problem I have with all of it is that with som many players, widescreen and big food limits, the lag at least for now will be also legendary. Doesnt mean I dont love these changes tho!

    Wait, what?

    It'll take me some time to sink this one, go out and get wasted to celebrate, and then write my response.

    24 players for custom maps. Did anybody say Funmap Evening Event! :D

    Can't wait to see which maps are made or getting updates to support this.

    This is an interesting patch, considering that not even Starcraft II allows up to 24 players (while this game is more recent). Does this mean there is hope coming up for a Warcraft III HD? It better be, I'm getting hyped up!

    Just when I want to get out, they pull me back in.
    Seriously though, this might as well return my once decade old burning desire for Warcraft III.
    Mad respect to whoever is responsible for these changes, and thank you Blizzard.

    Edit: While we're at it, why aren't they making this game free to play? I'd love to see more players, especially new players get interested.

    JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, HYYYPPEEE!!!

    This really made my day (or night, rather). So many years of waiting, and Blizzard finally answer our prayers. Everything is forgiven!

    Regarding 24 players though, i gotta say i don't really see what difference this will make... would anyone ever actually manage to fill a lobby with 24 players? Even 12 is a stretch. New colors are awesome, though.

    Or just put it on sale for cheaper price on battlenet app so people actually know it exists xD

    Roleplayers have no issues with that :V i vouch for them and we all appreciate it alot! :D
    We always wanted more slots. Now i can decorate my map more :) no more need to save up so much on doodsds to fit under the limit xD
    I would like the chat to get more characters allowed though :v
    And not to be affected by name changes that cut off excess letters :)
