    I see a lot of people saying that WoW exports are forbidden or others saying that they just are the easy way of doing something but I love C'Thun so much I MUST use his model on my boss map :grin: . The Final Answer to the Question: If I use C'Thun and His Little Eye would the map be deleted off the hive (No Matter that it is now approved) or should I torchure myself trying to find one or ask people all over the net for one ?
    P.S. The Boss will probably not have anything incommon with C'Thun - Only the model will be :thumbs_up: .

    not the correct place to ask this, but yes. Posting WoW models (or maps with them) is forbidden here, same goes for SC2 models.

    Nuff said. Malcous is right. Do not post WOW/SC2 models there.

    Also, you shouldn't be posting links to websites with WoW rips in them.

    Personally I think they're *allowed* in maps as long as there's no better alternative. I mean I used a few wow models in my campaign and it was a hosted project >__>

    Having a map with a wow export it's like exceeding speed limit on the road. It's illegal, but most of the time you will go unnoticed and only a few or none would really care.
