    Oh, so you do use some UMSWE functions :/ well, give it sometime, and if you do not plan on adding new factions or using new natives, you can still use the old editor with some triggers to deal with neutral passive becoming a player.

    @spinel I was joking. I fully understand that you can not have free time to edit KTA. ;)Also i really advisr you to split big patch into smaller pieces (slowly add more content). It will bring more player in long term then one big patch.

    Damned temptress. I though I was gone.

    I feel the most important question for maps is 'Are there already actual groups that would act separate from whoever owns them already?'

    But then you have to make sure there is something useful to fill the gap for the player being amputated into twenty parts.

    For LTA the first answer is a definite yes.

    Gilneas
    Dark Iron Dwarves
    Drakkari Trolls
    Scholomance
    High Elves
    Naga
    Draenai
    Night elves
    Separating Scarlet Crusade and Garithos.
    Aerie Peak
    Possibly Goblins or any other Horde Race.

    There's lots of these and I could keep going on, but without something to fill the void, what's the point?

    If you split all of the Alliance races, then first off backups have to be thought up more. As well, you legitimately remove all conflict from the races: Silverhand never has to worry about being too split up and losing everything.

    Events get lessened, variety of games reduces. It gets less exciting and more repetitive.

    If something were to change that then I would be on board for the change. Just a struggle currently.

    A possible suggestion: Let Blood Elves keep their paths. Just separate Illidan, and possibly Draenai. Illidan keeps the Naga, Draenai can have a reunion event for their brethren, and Kael isn't crippled by the loss of an event because he still gets allies, and it allows an option for Maiev to be a separate hero. The only problem comes from the possible backups for her.

    So that's my two cents.

    I'm kiiinda tempted to get back into City of Demons, but I feel it'd end up abusing the 24 man gag because it allows much more spice in the game. Bigger teams and such

    But also school lol

    Edit: also hi again guys!

    This patch is such a huge blessing for us if we manage to make ways around the issues it will cause for well established maps.
    Remember all editors out there: adding more players to the map just because you can is not neccesarily a good or wise thing.

    Does that make much sense though? They clearly put in alot of effort to improve wc3, it seems more like they are sticking to it. A remaster would make all this work pointless. Less sales too since wc3 is much more viable=less reason to buy remaster.

    As for wc3 performance, they definitly need to boost it if LTA/Azeroth Wars style maps are to be viable with 20+ players. Heck wc3 is notably lagging in major 2v2 engagments as it is.
    But if everything works out, this could be wonderful. What has me hyped most is actually more tiles. As a mapper its so damn painful having to pick what measy few you can have.
