Hmmmm... haven't played WCIII since before Christmas I don't think but might be worth getting this if people start playing it again.

12-06-2003, 08:45:39
It sounds easier. A lot easier. With the new control features, and some better balancing, it should be possible to play a vaguely competitive game without having to learn and practise a bunch of insanely complex, counter-intuitive strategies.

But that's crazy talk.

12-06-2003, 08:51:57
I just played normal straightforward strategies, someone should have told me! :D

12-06-2003, 08:53:29
You FOOL! WarcraftIII is all about Sorceresses and Kung-fu trees!

12-06-2003, 09:02:09
I thought it was about my horsies getting fun rides in tornadoes!

12-06-2003, 10:38:39
You didn't like the Kung-fu trees? :(

12-06-2003, 10:48:48
I could never figure out how to get them to do a flying kick or a simple leg sweep.

12-06-2003, 11:44:37
Tree rush, now that was fun... Until it was done to me.

I thought this thread was going to be about cold toilet seats

12-06-2003, 20:01:54
You guys don't have heated toilet seats in the UK? They're standard over here...I knew there was a reason I poured so much tax income into the Military Industrial Complex.

Yes. It's very good. Some very interesting missions.
Some ideas stolen from Age of Mythology ... The story is getting more and more complex and I'm totally confused by changing sides every 5 missions.

10-07-2003, 16:07:42
Missions... you mean single player? :confused:

11-07-2003, 01:26:35
It's running too slowly on my machine to be much fun:(. I really need to figure out what is broken in my drivers and setup.

Nah, just joking. I don't really do Single Player. I might wait until Shiny's got it running properly. No point getting it if there's no-one to play MP.

11-07-2003, 11:10:43
why did you receive the email in French funko? is the evil Vivendi doing mischief again? shouldn't they know that most of you anglo-saxons speak (barely) a single language?

11-07-2003, 11:13:47
I don't know!

I actually understood it though.

11-07-2003, 18:10:19
I like the solo player campaign. In fact I don't like MP because I always lose - I even lose against the AI . I like playing FPS MP, but RTS, no thanks. Maybe it's because I don't feel "involved". I usually hit "pause" every few minutes and go out and have a drink etc.

11-07-2003, 18:13:52
It's quite easy:

4 nouveaux Héros de légende
4 heteros on horses with different genders

8 nouvelles unités
8 united books

5 héros neutres
5 heteros with no gender

26 missions solo
26 pokey bum wanks

De nouvelles cinématiques
books about fridges

Des options multijoueurs étendues

I usually lose too when I play it. In any case, it should not take too long to be competitive with me, Funko or The Shaker. If you are playing the game semi-regularly you probably have more practice than any of us anyway.

12-07-2003, 12:34:45
Yeah, and playing with the people we were playing with before it's fun even when you lose.

12-07-2003, 14:51:59
Fun for you maybe

12-07-2003, 15:53:55
Vinnie, PM Lady Rachel...she can tell you how to beat the bejeebers out of Funko, every time :D

The Mad Monk
12-07-2003, 21:56:39
Does it involve goblin airships?

13-07-2003, 02:01:49
You don't need fancy tactics to beat the bejeebers out of Funko:D

13-07-2003, 11:21:02
Yeah, just play the game occasionally.

13-07-2003, 12:38:56
Yep. Mike is a sitting duck because he really likes to play games against glowies but doesn't have time to practise.

The Shaker
14-07-2003, 11:11:57
Even I can beat funko.

well once

14-07-2003, 11:31:24
I'm sure I stopped playing you after that 'cause I knew you'd beat me more. :)
