    You did an amazing job focusing on a single word instead of my counter to your previous point :)

    While I do agree on some things you said, I disagree on some.

    First of all 2009 is already antiquity when it comes to gaming and other high tech industries. So you can't compare the situation now and back than in almost anyway, let alone 2006 and stuff.

    It seems that you're overestimating the power of modding community. Modding didn't expand the player base, it just extended people's interest in it. Nobody began to play the game cause of modding community in the first place. People started modding because they liked the base game. People who liked the base game started to do modding. But, I agree with you and @MasterBlaster that the modding community will indeed prolongue the game's life and make people more interested in the micro transactions. But on the other hand they can not predict will you,or anyone else, be in modding a few years from now.

    The only exception being DotA. I do agree that it helped promote the game and extend it's life cycle, and it benefited Blizzard. But they descided to sell the rites to another company, who made DotA 2. Maybe the most popular game now (Legue of Legends), second maybe only to Minecraft, is based on DotA and is developed by another company, Blizzard's competition, and they are making tons of money, while Blizzard is not doing so well. Blizzard tried to make it's own LoL, Heroes of the Storm, but failed miserably. They basically admitted that when they said something like, we're killing HotS. What I meant to say that DotA actually ended up being bad for Blizzard :D

    What in the actual Grommash's <censored>?!

    I'm trying to not get my hopes up, but... perhaps their internal build really had a lot of improvements we haven't seen yet and they've decided to finally enable them for testing to make sure they're ready for release?

    Thats probably the case. They have 19 days until release date, so now is the time

    Patch notes are up.

    1.32.0.4 Beta Notes

    TL;DR - custom games, new ladder maps, there will be bugs, they expect to patch aggresively.

    Also, there's some reddit/tweets that say some graphic improvements have been made. Haven't seen any details or even a reliable confirmation thus far.

    ---

    Well, the "patching aggresively" part sounds like they're rushing to get it ready for release this month. Not sure how I feel about this. Hopefully it goes well.

    ---

    Watching Grubby - there have been some graphical updates. For instance, some portraits are finally animated and in an actually fine way, i.e. you can see the unit talking. Nice.

    @Venombite Man, you are good and smart. Bright future is in front of you. Its just that you are too much into this modern corporation stuff, propaganda they are doing these days, but you will blend into it awesomely!

    Yes, I can't compare! Back then and now is much different. Thieves everywhere. Facebook founder got prosecuted and had to testify before European parliament, and his company got heavy punished for espionage. Employees around world started to protest against Google for various stuff. So yes! Good last few ,,modern" years, for high tech giants. Greed is at its best. One simply wishes we all stuck frozen in these times :cgrin:

    But it all started from there. And we are alive man. Antique? I had less than 20, now I have 31. A bit older, but not too old. Many of us are still here. And watch stuff happening!

    Not much. Again, who is testing stuff for them now? When they release patches, right now, custom games... Who created them at first place?
    They hired many people from here... Oh you remember in their official post ,,Thanks Retera" ... Retera is man from here. They would not have shit properly done without us to fix and clean stuff after them. All they do is release something and ,,insert hype here... new patch is out, test it".
    They cannot function properly without modding communities. They can survive, but not function smoothly. Those modern ,,facebook generation" kids whose are not into modding just play stuff.


    Yes that. Wise words again. But one thing, I have seen many posts in blizzard's forums and around. Many people told that they care only about custom games, not campaign or PvP. This is how I started here back in ,,antique" times. Since Wc3 came out, I played it for years occasionally, and got enough of same stuff over and over. And in old Wc3sear I saw custom maps. Then I downloaded, played them for long time. Then I started downloading custom models and implement in my maps. And registered here. So, its not just community itself, but custom maps bring people here. As far I remember there are ,,Community Maps" in latest patches for TFT. I have that folder built in at least. Obviosly, it is made by communities. So yes, you are right overall about this one, but many people are enough with ,,vanilla" stuff. And even today, they want to play custom, even in Reforged.

    I do not know honestly much about it, I did not play Dota much ,few times, I do not like it. Thus I assume whatever you wrote to be that because you know what about you are talking.
