    Definitely. This isn't a remaster, it's just a patch. I've already tried testing some of the new team colors on my models.

    Cannot wait for the ingame player communication: "help us, maroon", " indigo got fed by pink", "I meant rose".

    Were 16 textures not possible before outside of WE?

    Before: FFS LEAVE UR LAGGING THE GAME. *Drop player window pops up for a few secs, goes away* <<-- repeat 5 times.
    Now: Drop player window: The Simulator

    I hope people limit the unit count in 24 player maps, as the graphics tend to bug out when theres too many units on screen.

    But if used well there can be some really cool maps. Dota 1 with 22 players is going to be a craze.

    The game has RAM and fps issues with 12 players so idk how it can hold up with 24. Guess we'll have to keep the games short :’D

    This is amazing. definitely something to make me consider returning to doing stuff. 24 players really seems so unreasonable, but I love it anyway, haha.

    Holy fuck that's one heck of an update especially with the editor one.
    If this is fully released, it's a fuckfest xD

    24 players? Wow... Now that was unexpected. Melee maps were already a nightmare with maximum players, but this will bring "chaos" to another level. I'm most happy about widescreen resolutions and team colors! We also need an option to edit team colors via a map, not mpq.

    Perfect update! !!

    these updates are so good

    some of those natives really open things up

    but increase of max food count to 999 max players to 24...LAG LAG CITY
    there now really needs to be some kind of update so wc3 can handle that amount of chaos

    This sounds hectic. I hope they put some campaigning and advertisements out for this patch to bring back a few thousand players. Would love for War3 to be mainstream again. Can't wait to test people's 24 player maps.

    P.S: Plus 1million rep for anyone that makes 24 player pudge wars mayhem

    Actually -- more players has to mean more team colors are coming right?
