This doesn't qualify as news imo. I could have told you that War4 will come out eventually.
If you go to battle.net you can find this information. I believe you have to log at least 24 hours on an account before this is reported. Battle.net > ladders > search field in the bottom right of the screen. Search your name then proceed to "player stats."

But I doubt it. "There's a chance" is kinda not saying much.
Depends on who's saying "there's a chance". If you were telling me there's a chance, I'd react like you did there. This is a little different.

War3 is my personal favorite of the Blizzard PC games. I have all of them minus the WoW series. Had it for a while but didn't like it etc. Smaller armies where micro and marco are more important suit my playstyle pretty well.

Hm it says I only have 131 hours played which is impossible. I never quit the game since I got it in 2002...It should be closer to like 10 thousand hours imo, no exaggeration.

Edit - Double post. Now that I think about it I guess it is accurate. I've spent a LOT more time playing custom games as opposed to ladder.

if having heroes that destroy any balance of the game makes it better than SC2 will blow balls. Wont SC2 have tools in the editor to make it exactly like dota for custom games though? Levling/items/inventory and such.

I like the hero concept.
a) Helps with more diverse play styles
b) Made the custom games what they are
c) Fun to pwn then with an Coil Nova nuke.

Sounds like you have little to no experience playing War3. It takes a while to get a good feel for the game and to understand the basic mechanics.

It indeed will be possible to make a DotA-style map in SCII. However it will take enormous amounts of time and effort for it to be anywhere near a stable map. There are so many things that would need to be done...Create heroes with levels that have inventory slots and abilites...Create items literally from scratch...Terrain...Creeps...Make the heroes and creeps give and/or receive experience points...Theres just so much that has to go into it that it would be a long time before it takes a hold of SCII like it has War3. Besides, we don't even know if the editors of DotA will be taking it to SCII. I would rather see a standalone DotA myself but that is another story.
