    I find it stupid you have to pay 30-50 US for bytes of code.

    ?

    oh you must be talking about those pay sites.

    i didnt find the one i linked earlier its actually the Gargoyles font but the letter 'c' is very similar in both that font and the Warcraft title font.

    where does WC use the thorndale font if indeed it does, because i cant seem to place it, it looks nothing like the title font.

    Thorndale is the in-game font.

    The Gargoyles one that was posted is a variant of the font used in the Wc3 Logo.

    Is it possible that sometimes companies pick and choose more than one font, even for only one word?

    :D

    Yes, but I think the one on the cover was graphically designed.

    I think we should all make our own font, it'd be rad, we could call it anything we wanted, we would take all the letters from the blizz games, and add a few of our own :D

    Well, that would require special software. But that would actually be a leet idea.

    Wouldn't be too hard to organize the letters, just gotta lie copy and paste the letter/picture.

    I'm gonna post a thread and see if anyone wants to help. like everyone picks a letter, and at the end, a good programmer person could help us...or something. I love the awesome X on Diablo1

    Yeah, but you need software that allows you to save everything into a TrueType Font file.
