OK, I'm dying for this to come out... so they better hurry up with the beta testing and hook us up! =)

Any one here on the beta testing team?
Just a fan of this awesome site.

Well, since when does Blizzard release their games when they're supposed to...? ;)

Ah well, i rarely play computergames anymore... Too many problems...  Then again, this just might be a game i'll buy nevertheless... :)

I played the beta at this games festival thing, and it was very bad in my opinion.  Warcraft is supposed to be a RTS game, not an RPG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope it has a really good campaign editor. That's the main thing for me.

I thought the WC series switching to be an RPG is a bad idea, and I heard that it stinks now.  I can't wait until the next StarCraft game is released.   :D

War3 is NOT like War2.

War3 has 'hero' units, which through the patches of the Beta are becoming more like just normla super units.  They have items they can use, (items that are, suprise suprise, very much like diablo iteams , ie scroll of town portal).  You can collect items for them, and trade them between heroes.  
Most maps contain mercenaries that you can hire units off instead of building them.  
War3 has serios balance and graphics problems and it prob. won't be out until september this year.  
I hope you got a nice PC cuz running it on a celeron 800 w/ 256mb ram, 32Mb graphics card, its runs like a dog.
The Psuedo 3D graphics allow you to move the perspective up and down, but not side to side, which is disappointing.
The world editor is meant to be great, allowing you to string together multiple scenarios and include split path campaigns, although it is not included in the Beta version.

The best thing is that the game has almost NO lag playing on the net, a 56K connection is almost identical to and ADSL guys pings.

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
