For those of you who actually played Warcraft III on Battle.net in its prime, was this not the best game of all time?
I'm not talking about the campaign (which I did enjoy) or the regular matches, but the custom games that players created.
The custom games on Battle.net had everything! They even created entire genres of other games! The WorldEditor allowed for so much creativity and ingenuity to appear on Battle.net. I don't think I've ever played another game that had such a massive variety of options to choose from. I was able to play it off and on for years and it still kept itself interesting.
It's really a shame though that we will never see another game like it. It was so sad to see the community slowly dissolve into nothing but bot hosted DotA games.

>Starcraft II was a soul-crushing letdown and a shadow of what Battle.net could have been.
>>
>>260736523
Yes.
It's not entirely dead, there's a /v/ group that plays together occasionally AFAIK, but it could definitely be in better shape.
>>
Best RPG: Waugrif CoT series
Best Arena: Nexus Arena
Best TD: Line Tower non-War edition
Best "Tag": Kodo Tag/Dark Deeds, if you count that
Best "MOBA": ENFOs
Debate me.
>>
Hero line wars. Also, there is a /v/ steam group dedicated to playing wc3 TFT, but I cant remember the name. Try: wc3 /v/ or wc3 vidya.
>>
>>260737085
Are you me?

I tried it once but I had no idea what to do and I got totally crushed. Wasn't interested in playing again after that non-fun experience.
>>
I remember playing shit ton of custom maps on garena. Good times.
>>
>Those fags that would abuse glitches in dbz tribute and ruin the game for everybody
>>
>>260737085
Kodo tag was rad! I liked golem tag too. The basic ones before they got too insane with custom buildings and cheaty maps were the best.

Waugrif's was sooo good. But it seemed like my saves only worked like 60% of the time.

My favorite MOBA will always be Battleships!

Also was anyone else a big fan of Island Defense? My friend and I used to play the shit out of it. Too bad it was one of those really high skill curve games so it usually turned into a steamroll one way or the other.
>Morph4lyfe

There was one custom game that came out relatively recently that had a variety of ways to make money, either by regional buying and selling, hunting, and farming. Players who died without a home base became bandits. Anyone remember the name? Because that game was good.
>>
>>260736523
Custom games were really good, but the ladder matches were fucking awesome.
>>
>>260736523
WC3: TFT Battle.net was THE game to play. I miss that shit so much. So many great custom games to be played.

Werewolf Transylvania
Dark Deeds
Azeroth Wars
Line Tower Wars
Life of a Peasant
Real Life For Morons
Castle Wars
The hide and seek one where a bunch of you play as an ent and build a base while trying to hide from 3 other players

Good times.

Best RPG: TKoK Eastern Kingdom I swear to god, the environment and quests in that one were so cash

Best "MOBA": Battleships CS
Also best LOAP: Real Life (for morons)

Starcraft II has great custom games.

I played WC3 extensively, had over 2000 games played, 3 150 win icons, one 750 win icon, one 350 win icon, and every race's 25 win icon. also tourny icons to infernal.
Stop being a faggot.

The WC3 Troy custom map was probably the most memorable for me as a kid. WC3 custom maps were golden.
>>
>>260738810
SC2 just isn't the same. No matter how hard I try to get into it's arcade games, they just aren't the same as WC3's custom games.
>>
>>260737109
Too bad they play nothing but trash maps all fucking day. I try to suggest something good like island defense/fortress survival/shopping maul/etc and they just want to play stupid fucking maps like ESCAPE FROM GAY HEAVEN and DARK DEEDS and COTDRP
>>
It was great until DoTA flooded the custom games list. Most DoTA hosts would ban you on the spot for trying to learn how to play it.
>>
it was a golden age, it will not come back
>>
>Best game of all time
>But only because of the custom games

I don't understand your logic, WC3 was a pretty slow RTS with inflated health pools so casuals wouldn't cry about their units dying 'too fast' and generally unwanted RPG mechanics that continue to plague Blizzards idea of an RTS (Kerrigan being a LoL hero in SC2 for example...)

I find it a fallacy to call it the best game when the only thing that excelled is the user created content, you're giving Blizzshit way too much credit when you word it that way.
>>
>>260736523
I liked broodwar 1v1 more but WC3 had godly custom maps.
>>
>>260738979
I remember that. Fuck that shit. The maps list was completely flooded with DotA all the time. All of them would instantly kick you if you didn't have the map downloaded already.
>>
>>260736523
Nobody makes custom games for map editors anymore. Tools for making games used to be scarce back in the day.
Nowdays you can just pickup unity and make your own game, and actually sell it to make money.

I swear to god, every faggot wants to play it just to build their own little base, once you start RPing they either close the gates and act like they aren't there or leave.

There's also the fact that blizzard claims rights to whatever you make, so that killed the SC2 map community

Escape, Dark Deeds, and COTDRP are all good games though. I mean, I'm 100% behind you on it being bullshit that that's all they play, but it's nice to play them every once in a while though.

Sidebar, what was the game where you built windmills in wood fence squares for income and were continually raided by more powerful monsters and knights as time went on? Let's Build a Kingdom? I always enjoyed that but never managed to win.
>>
Anyone else spend countless hours on Helm Deep in Starcraft?
>>
Darwin's Island was always a blast, especially when multiple people reached Godhood and battled it out. I dug Enfo's as well, it's too bad nobody has taken an approach at that kind of Hero Wave Defense game where two teams generally dick with one-another.
>>
fucking Helms Deep and other siege maps were the greatest thing ever.
>>
>>260738810
>Starcraft II has great custom games.

It really doesn't and it was doomed either way as Blizzard planned to charge players money to 'buy' custom maps if they were popular enough. Fortunately real gamers stayed the fuck away from that shitsequel and the custom map scene never got a shred of talent.
>>
Wintermaul Wars
DBZ Tribute
Footman Frenzy
Plus I always liked Nintendo TD because you could build something before a short cinematic and then get all your gold back when the cinematic ended.

While I agree SC2's customs weren't nearly as fun as WC3 overall they definitely had some gems. That Space Battleship game was fun as fuck until everyone started treating it as the next DOTA and the community started to twist into a mirror of DOTA's as a result.
>>
I loved the hero arena's and I remember people made like Final Fantasy hero arena's and other such gaming themed ones

the rpgs were kinda fun too, the world of warcraft one was great, I remember that DBZ one too

It's very rare for online games to have a good community anymore unless the game is either very new or has a very limited demographic.

Online communities have generally gone to shit, it's no longer mind blowing to be able to play vidya with people thousands of kilometers away from you, everyone takes it for granted and gets high off the anonymity. Too many suburbanites that are entitled to their 'right to the internet'. The original Battle.net existed during the wild west days when an internet connection that was both fast and stable was not the norm.

most of the people on /v/ are too scrub to actually play, they just talk about it.

last time i hosted some maps, literally everyone but me was terrible. some one leak only survival td's? everyone but me is wiped out by round 2. arena maps? i always win. survival/one guy vs the rest maps? i win.

sure it probably sounds like i'm bragging, but i'm not even fucking good at wc3 customs, i usually lose most games that aren't team based like wintermaul, but /v/ manages to make me look like a fucking pubstar.

Appearently there is a hero line wars and team survival game

This and Dawn of War 1/2 were my only serious attempts at competitive RTS.

I like small numbers of units. The sheer swarm-spam of Starcraft 2 turns me off. I am just not idiot savant enough to manage that much shit.

I really hope Warcraft comes back to the RTS game. This game was truly enchanting. I got to play some of the first tower defense games that ever existed on battle.net! How cool is that?

Right now it requires basic programming knowledge. It takes time to become familiar with the functions and commands necessary to do the more complex stuff.
It's a bit too complex for the average user at the moment, but it is still in beta and they are adding and patching things all the time. Spending a bit of time learning it is rewarding, but I don't think you'll see a whole lot of those half baked maps at this stage.

I played the game. It was fun on the lower ends when I could do more varied builds and didn't have to do one specific starting build. Where I could actually use different heroes. It was nice to be able to play low ladder matches and start Paladin instead of Archmage 100% of the time, or have a Shaman + Tauren only build.
Higher ladder was just too cookie cutter for my liking and I wasn't a God Tier player so I couldn't stomp higher tiers using only what I liked.

It's like saying the SNES was the best video game of all time.
The library of Warcraft 3 custom games are so diverse and vast that I don't think most people even realize.
Yesterday I showed a map to a friend who even played Warcraft 3 and he didn't realize it was possible.

Metastasis was better and last I heard the guy was disappointed with sc2 and worked on his standalone game.

Metastasis was a little more cutthroat and less noob friendly.
Died the first time before I could grab a weapon because I started with augmented legs that another guy wanted.
But once you git gud it is really amazing and Parasite 2 looks plain in comparison.

Infecting the bio section was sweet in Parasite though.
Metastasis is just so polished in so many ways though. Mutant, Alien and Android are handled pretty great, and the humans are more distinct.

Not sure when you got into Metastasis but we had a ton of games.
There was an official bot, another guy had his bot but he took it down I think to avoid two half filled games.
The bot hosted cross realm, but also on some other russian servers to bring in other people.
Traffic was great for a longer time.
I even came back after half a year and still had games.

Today there's nothing though, but I haven't seen parasite either.

Image you had to be able to perform at 80 cs/deny at 10 minutes in Dota, minimum, to not lose all games.
As a RTS, Warcraft succeded, but it also failed because custom was a lot more fun than actually learning how to play.
I honestly think Starcraft is easier to learn, just for the sake starcraft units are expandable compared to warcraft units.

I never thought it would end. Like, I thougt WC3 was going to ruin my fucking life with how much I loved it. I sank thousands of hours into that game. It's almost surreal to think back to what a staple that was of my gaming routine.

And then it slowly filled with DotA, and bots, and map hackers, and all of the shit that ruined every Blizzard game (looking at you Diablo 2).

Blizzard was such a glorious company back then. The amount of games on WC3 made it its own fucking medium. WC3 wasn't a game, it was a platform.

Best online game? WC3 certainly could've been it, though I think TFC probably is also up there. Diablo 2 is great as well, but I don't actually remember playing much with random people on the internet, just a lot of co-op.

I don't think you even understand what the Warcraft III unit library did for the custom map scene.
Dota is currently 30-40 units short of being on the same page, and thats with allowing cosmetics to be put on the wrong heroes for diversity.

If it turns into everything packed with 100-200 megabytes of very shitty custom models, music and whatever, its going to be even worse.
Warcraft III had to stand on the fact that the graphics and music provided by default was good.
Seriously, come and say any of the Dota 2 music is good, because its bland shit at the moment.

Oh nice.
I actually streamed the wc3:roc campaign on hard for some friends, after a friend kept failing on stream on like the 4th human map on hard.

Final undead map was the first one I lost on.
Only lost once though and I was seconds I think away from succeeding.
It was less than a minute at most, but I think it was even less than 10 seconds left.

God damn siege tanks managed to ruin my infrastructure by destroying my Halls of the Dead and some other buildings so I couldn't build anything useful for too long.

>>260749202
Dota 2 has a lot of heros and a fair bit of summons, Warcraft 3 has four entire races, with lots of campaign only buildings and units.
Many more summons than in Dota 2
And a very substantial number of neutral creeps that added diversity, from demons to dragons to bandits to wizards.

This. Both games were huge letdowns.

I really hope it's not just me being a nostalgiafag, but w3 just seemed so much fresher and more interesting. Sc2 was pretty much just another addon for sc1, d3 was completely uninteresting once you had beaten Inferno.

By the way, have they ever delivered the PvP arenas that they had promised years ago?

Ah yes Custom games, for the casuals who were to shit at the game for regular matches.

>>260750118
Do you know how undead in wc3 go Fiends to Frosties nearly every game despite the matchup? I found that the amount of strategy in sc2 was pretty minimal, and it was mostly twitch and muscle memory.

I dunno how it's been since heart of the storm came out, but in WoL you had like, just a few compositions that would actually work at high end play. Terran would either go mech if they felt like it, but would usually make a bioball and that was that. Protoss had their deathballs, and zerg had the least strategic choice at all since their gimmick is being able to counter an army quickly

WoW was revealed before the release of wc3 and I imagined that I was gonna play a High Elf and then go to Dalaran and train magic.

I was ok with SC2 for the most part (Other than the campaign going full retard at a certain point and the always on/connected nature of the game with no LAN), and at that point in time I was somewhat disenfranchised with the new WoW expansions, but I don't think anything compares with the sheer betrayal I felt when Diablo 3 released (Well, maybe the butchering of Warcraft lore). I got a beta invite and there was just so many things wrong with the game compared to the predecessor. The classes made the game feel like an action game instead of an RPG with roguelike influences, the classes themselves were dull and boring and took no thought, the itemization stats weren't as detailed as the previous game, the art style was no longer a dark, gothic look, and the story was terrible. This was probably the only time I ever contemplated sending a letterbomb to someone for a fuck up of this magnitude.

Pyramid Escape is actually a great way to start playing with a group of people, because it shows you how competent or willing to listen they are.

>your group does fairly well, listens if they haven't played before on certain minigames you nearly have to cheese, like the tower defence one

Then you can play pretty much any map and be fine.

>Your group can't even do the skeleton one or the one where you have to step on a colored rune button when a colored enemy appears

Then you should ditch that group and never play games with them again.

Custom maps as they were in WC3 and SC are dead forever. Tools like Unity and UE3 are out for the public to use risk free and allow for even more flexibility in creation of games compared to what Blizzard's map editor allowed. What's more is that as those map creators got older, a good chunk of them actually developed skill in programming and have the capability to release their own games for profit.

So yeah, what we used to get as free custom maps for games we now get as cheap indie games.
>>
>>260752175
Yes.
Sol's ORPG

It was made in a time before Open started to mean Save/Load mechanics which was the dumbest shit ever.

Sols ORPG vein of map existed in Starcraft as well, and there were others than Sol in wc3.


No idea which is the best version anymore.

It's gone, but that's okay. People moved on to making indie games where there's actual $, predictably. But, I don't think custom maps will die out forever. There's a lot of fresh blood trying to learn Lua so they can script their own modes into Dota 2's Workshop.

A lot of games on bnet are empty when you join them.
Just a host that is refreshing endlessly.

I played a map two weeks ago.
There were better quality maps a few weeks out of RoC launch.
The good maps are out there, but it's harder to get a game going with what you like, so for many the scene is dead.

That, is true. However, using one of the popular bots to host a match can make it possible.

I waited 1 hour in a lobby for a full server from WARHAMMER OWC one time. It's hard to get full lobby for not popular maps but it's certainly possible.

Nope.
But it was good.
It put up a good fight vs Dota, but eventually ToB got beaten.

TFT giving further customization was nice.

I don't know if Troll Tribes was the first though, I remember very early survival games (one where you're a human in a snowy world) and you have to pick up various things and craft survival items. It even had a cold system where you freeze if you aren't near a fire for long enough.
>>
>>260758826
Ah I guess that makes it fairly limited on the types of maps it can be used for.

I think this was even back in RoC, but I was blown away by how large a map was.
It was an alternate melee map, but every standard race was split into three based on the heroes.

So there was 1 Night Elf team with Keeper of the Grove and it had Dryads, Centaurs, etc.

Think it was 3vs3vs3vs3

It was one of the most played in the first couple years of TFT. It never got much exposure, though.

It's also in Blizzard's Hall of Fame for WC3 custom games.

There was also a vampire game not vampirism, the one where you have to kill the peasants at night and hide in the "blight" marked hideout areas during the day. Purple was the one human player trying to stop them.

It's pretty crazy when you think about it how many amazing maps came out of the W3 custom scene.

Nope. Stolen content. And keeping with that Guinsoo/Icefrog continued to steal content and code from other maps (including ToB) during its development on WC3. Eul didn't give his blessing for Allstars until he got a "job" with Valve.
