    Yeah, if anything WarCraft 2 is dead, it never goes above 1100 players but never drops below 1000.

    Necro, 1998 was 7 years ago

    That's not too long ago

    At that, I still play games from 1992

    Look at how many people are still playing starcraft...and how old is that game?

    If warcraft 3 is dead, it sure as heck doesnt show here (still getting an average of .92 terabytes of traffic a month!).

    Warcraft III is only dead to n00bs who've moved onto the next RTS with nicer graphics, hopefully leaving behind a hard-core of reasonably decent people who enjoy a good game rather than a high-poly game. And a good editor.

    Warcraft will never die from the heart of it's modders.
    We have spent soooo much time with it and none of us will quit it so easy.

    Not untill Blizzard eventually makes some other game with even better editor. Good games are hard to kill.
    Still there are people who makes mods and things for Id and Raven Sofwares most famous games... The people who made Doomsday are now working on a remaking of Hexen with the Doom III engine. I can't wait...

    For a long time, blizzard abandoned wc3 , as they where doing work on wow.

    Until . . .

    They have released 2 updates which means that they have infact relized that not all wc3 players will leave it and play only wow.

    I have wow but dont play it, it gets booring, and whatever blizzard say, all it comes down to is lvl grinding and hours played, to get better at it. All you ever do is kill hundreads of creeps to get just 1, yes 1 level up, when you get past lvl 15!


    And after lvl 10 quests are completly pointless cos they give only 8 silver when u can easily make 5 gold a day from selling copper bars at rip-off prices.

    I think wc3 is better then wow by miles, but that is my opinion, and i dont mind the price, its just that it gets monoitinous and booring.

    Most people will say "but later in game you can get a mount and also do massive raids on places" but raids are nothing special, just like attacking more creeps but with gaurds instead of creeps.

    In conclusion, wc3 will never die because its much better then wow (in most ways), and it is an rts, and some ppl might only play rts not rpg so they wont play wow.

    P.s: i like wc3 and will allways play until wc4 comes out :D
