    3ds Max is not superior by any measure, and is actually being moved away from in the 3D industry in favor of Maya. I've been using 3ds Max for over 8 years, and once i swapped to Blender, i just couldn't stomach Max anymore. The UI flow in Blender is just so much faster once you learn the hotkeys, and it has tons of features built-in which 3ds Max relies on expensive plugins to provide. For instance, it has integrated sculpting, a parametric tree generator, procedural terrain generation, post-render compositing, smoke/fire simulation, and much more. I'm gonna make a compilation of mini-tutorials soon on how to do some awesome wc3 content really easily in Blender.
