    After much discussion amongst the staff (started by Aurora, who has been incredibly helpful), we have decided to revamp our index. We feel that this new layout is better than our previous, and more practical for our current forum. Tell us what you think, we're always looking for feedback and comments.

    We hope you enjoy the new setup.

    Ohhh did you merge war3 replays&strategies&general into one? Just separated War3 from WoW ? Not that good, coz all will be a spam forum of Dota, 'How do I beat 2 elves' threads, mixed with 'Cannot Connect to Bnet' and 'new patch' that sux. Since I'm not sure if my approach would be fine, I'd rather follow the separation that Garena did - RPG and TFT. Could be

    War3 section
    • RPG (Dota, Custom games like TD, Footmen Wars, Heros, etc and replays and strats about these maps)
    • TFT (Melee -1v1, 2v2, ffa, XvsX, replays and strats only about these 2)
    - a thread about tech issues, so that we don't have a section
    • WoW

    SC: since few custom games are played and soon all will look at SC2:
    • Melee and Custom (utilities removed or not in that section)
    - a thread about tech issues

    D2:
    • D2 hero strats, skills, just 1 section (utilities removed)
    • D3 hero strats, skills, just 1 section

    Just discussing those by Blizzard. Some are done, some are far not like that. I never saw since I was a staff member this place ever to say 'Bye' to hacks and utilities and I was trying to do that or to convice to be done... Could've become one of Blizzards's best affilitates if affiliated at all.

    War3 RTS also includes DoTA, so what's your problem? It's not like we had a seperate board for that before. Further, WoW is still seperated from the RTS. Warcraft is just a single section now.

    Also, we have a single place for all maps, patches, etc. now. I am still busy with making a new format for that. Have some patience.

    Dota is not RTS, footman is not RTS, these are RPG War3 maps. If you say 'Zomg he's stupid' then call those who separate custom from melee stupid. I'm just following garena's example that I like, WoW not equal to War3 at all and War3 Dota/Custom not equal to Melee. Honestly these are my 5 cents, do what you want why do I bother -__________-

    Lol. I will look into it. Any feedback is good feedback.

    Still, we thought it was quite clear that Warcraft RTS was pointing towards everything related to the RTS game. I mean, DoTA is really cool and all. However, it still is just a collection of custom maps, made popular by the community.

    Now that's called a good moderator - who doesn't pay attention when I'm bugging him. Better make him admin. Nothing personal Aurora, it's just that BF and some nerds around made me act the same way or even worse, so I like being bad. You know, "eye for two, tooth for jaw".

    Nothing wrong with the Warcraft forums. It was a graveyard before so theres no point in cutting it back into multiple dead sections.

    I keep clicking some shit about "Diablo" where my Chit-Chat is suppose to be. It's mighty vexing.

    It was impossible to sort them before we moved them. Now we just are trying to seek out the best things. Also, it might actually work. If people are looking for something: why not post afterwards? But that could just be an illusion. :p
