    Just watched the videos, and while I am not saying I am feel any negative way towards blizzard.... all of the units/ changes look like they were current assets or assets slightly modified. The budget is looking low boys.

    Quote from Mozared: Go

    God, someone unbanned him and his first post is immediately ignorant, derogatory and mostly unconstructive. Good job, whoever that was.

    2 Things, First, Shut up, I was unbanned a LONG time ago, my ban was actually only about 3 days total... nearly 2 years ago.

    2nd. There was nothing ignorant about that... Quit crying just because you want something that will never come. It was a bad idea that had no place in the first place. Blizzard made it clear it wasn't coming. You would know this if you read the old post that blizzard replied to on this site. They specifically said that the map marketplace would NOT work with an open games list. When the open games list was created all hope for that was gone. That's the end of the story. If you would quit turning a blind eye to things to satisfy your own bloated ego you would know that. The arcade community is pretty much dead unfortunately. HoTS DID NOT boost the community nearly as expected. The arcade is now LESS populated than the Warcraft 3 Online Custom Community. Vindicator, I am sorry you sunk time into this, However you don't place all your hopes on an announcement of a feature that was only mentioned ONE TIME in any of the starcraft 2 announcements as a footnote. That was your fault.

    NOW, that that's out of the way. heres what I really think.

    They are going to quickly get LoTV out of the way. Since the story was done a long time ago, They already said that they almost didn't add ANY new units. So the new units they are now adding are all just expansion fodder(Sorry) Yes the game will still be AWESOME for melee gameplay. However the inclusion of the lurker shows they are just adding stuff to keep people from complaining.

    I think the RTS team at blizzard will stick to Heroes and we won't see a new RTS title from blizzard for quite a while(Unless something large and revolutionary comes which IS blizzards style of doing things, SC2 Aside) Though I do think there is a CHANCE that blizzard WILL create a map marketplace However it won't use the galaxy editor/Sc2Engine, but instead will be a heavily modified Sc2Engine that is made SPECIFICALLY for versatility. They will make Tons of assets for people to use in them . I have always said if they do that and make the Arcade a FREE standalone platform that requires ONLY an asset pack that is under 4 gigs than MAYBE you can get people to swallow it and play awesome maps. It would use the galaxy editor, however with a completely new GUI that focuses on making core aspects such as building heroes a VERY easy task.

    So Vindicator, Sorry it's your fault, you betted on a maybe. Dogmai did this too, however he accepted his losses and continued his life... 2 years ago when it became SO OBVIOUS. Mod for your ENJOYMENT, they way it's supposed to be. Not for personal gain.

    Also Mozared quit insulting others... Relax.

    As for masked imposter yeah they actually originally built the arcade completely around the Itunes App Marketplace, Deleterious actually worked there first and was later recruited by blizzard entertainment to help build theirs, Though in the end it was just that a carbon copy of the Itunes App Marketplace. The idea that the cream will rise to the top is TotalBS, and has been proven time and time again that some of the BEST stuff always gets shoved to the bottom and forgotten about Which is EXACTLY what happened when Sc2 first launched.

    The way (Some)mappers get their maps to the top now(or at-least they were doing it about 2 years ago) they would have about 8-16 people sitting alone in games all day. one guy I knew(I wont say because I am not here to defame anyone) actually used to run over a dozen instances of Sc2(Minimized so it was taking minimal resources) on virtual OS's. This was right after they made the arcade free in January.

    AHAHAHAH, You people STILL think that the map marketplace is coming... LOL, so damn funny. IF it ever comes it will be with the next RTS game, not an expansion. So warcraft 4. or Perhaps Starcraft 3, or some other new franchise, Chances are the LORE from TITAN still exist so I would expect them to still do something with that, Perhaps they will never make a warcraft 4 but instead a Titan MMO to take it's place.

    Though my personal speculation is that Blizzard sold the TITAN assets to Bungie to make Destiny and quietly just cancelled it way before they announced it's cancellation.

    So no vindicator... a map marketplace is not coming with this editor... ever. I told you that back before HoTS came out. When they put the open games list up the map marketplace was sunk lol.

    Quote from Triceron: Go

    I'm guessing they'll do something similar to League, where you can get everything (sans skins) for free but spend an abnormal amount of time to acquire everything. I would really hate for them to go for a pay-per-hero route, but I doubt they'd be as generous as DOTA's system.

    I would like them to make about half (around 2-3 per champion) purchasable for around double the amount of a champion through in-game currency.

    I really hate that league doesn't have some skins for each champ like this.

    I understand if they dont, but looking at the same champ after I paid $30 into it gets a bit repetitive. It's one of the reasons I haven't played it/put MORE money into it in over a year. Skins on league are over-priced, the reason I put $30 into it was to support the game because I liked it.

    But Liek I said the skins would have to be the highest costing thing. like double that of a champion(a champ should take 10-25 games, a skin should tak 25-50 games) I assume there will be other things like runes and such to buff your champ but I dont know.

    I hope SOME at the very least are obtainable with in-game currency :/ even if it is a larger amount(like 2x the amount to purchase a hero)

    Quote from AlexO6: Go

    Is it possible to extract the sound and art files from the game? Did you manage to do it? Been trying to myself, but to no avail.

    Sorry not really interested in it to be honest. I just wanted to check out the play style more than anything :P I wouldn't recommend using any of these assets in a project right now. also most of the icons are from WoW, Sc2, or D3

    posted a message on Heroes of the storm Leaked Client

    an(earlyish) alpha was leaked of Heroes of the storm.

    NOTE: This is in no way a finished product and has little in terms of what the final game will be, and blizzard in no way endorses this leaked client so play it at your own risk/discretion.

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/3767-Heroes-of-the-Storm-Alpha-Client

    I am not posting a download link so if you want to find it, you can :P it originated on 4chan and it is Legit it's the Friends and Family client.

    -----------------------------

    Personally for what is there I am pretty impressed, they really changed up the formula. the aesthetics are better than any of the other MOBAs now it's still a leaked client so I wouldn't go posting videos or screenshots but from what I have messed around with it's really cool and has gotten me excited for this once again.

    Idiots like joystiq however are already doing reviews... this is not a completed version, There is a talent tree, other modes, etc that are not included in this so THIS IS NOT FINISHED!!! but it is really good for what it is.

    Oh and biggest thing

    DIABLO IS FAT AGAIN!!!! YAY!!!!! that made me so damn happy.

    posted a message on Hero Creation
    Quote from Fuertisimodos: Go

    So I have been chugging along with getting my learn on with the tutorials that Fishy so kindly fixed up yesterday, and I dove into hero creation last night. The tutorial I used was the one by Alevice located at http://www.sc2c.org/showthread.php?t=12. Now granted, its a few years old now so it might be outdated, but I have to ask, is there an easier way to create hero units? The last Blizzard toolset I used was in Warcraft 3, so it's almost horrifying to me how much more complicated the process seems to be for Starcraft 2. It seems like even for experienced toolset users the process of simply converting a regular unit into a usable, WC3-like hero unit is tedious at best. So I guess what I'm saying is, I really hope they implemented a more automated process between now and when that tutorial was written.

    http://www.sc2mapster.com/maps/evo-frenzy/

    that contains 13 heroes you are free to look at, copy and do whatever with. :) all are pretty unique and cool.

    Do we have any undercover agents? To remain discreet, if we have any undercover agents here on SC2Mapster, say "I am not an undercover agent." It can be our secret code ;)

    "I am not a buttnaked agent."

    I think the final mission will be cool, but cliched like the rest. Fun but bad writing :P

    I think we will see sentries get a major overhaul, I think the mothership might get an overhaul as well.

    Infestors will probably loose fungal growth, and perhaps given one that slows enemies by 50%

    I think we will see Burrowed Terran units that move, like a mechanical bunker worm.

    I think Zerg will get scourge back, or some kind of Baneling Mutation that allows them to fly

    Honestly i dunno what to think. I Just hope after Sc2 is over they start on Warcraft 4. WoW has a shit storyline, I want to see the 4th warcraft war, or a total remake of the first and second wars.

    posted a message on Blizzard Arcade Contest and Launch Event
    Quote from Trieva: Go

    Thanks for the responses guys. In the absence of Blizzard's clarification/confirmation your definition of technical achievement sounds reasonable.

    @Trieva: Go

    I'm starting to realise this is a dumb question. It's probably best if any map can be entered because the contest is likely trying to find maps that really push for excellence in some area(s). I know, we're competing with SCU but at least we have 2nd and 3rd prize :) .

    @Trieva: Go

    I'm starting to realise this is another dumb question. It's probably up to me what I use but the art tools would likely increase my chances of reaching the top 3.

    I'm going to settle with using Elite Agents and if I cannot use it, please let me know asap.

    Good luck to everyone participating!!

    It depends on how good you think SCU is really. And everyones taste is different, blizzard is going to pick 5 maps, And than out of those 5 the community will pick the winners. SO I suggest you make it as flashy as possible :P
