    Quote from ENT Discord
    Jabba41Today at 12:09 AM Hello Humans, Orcs, Undead and Night elves. For those of you wondering why you are unable to play that game of Legion TD, Vampirism or Dota you were so looking forward to, It is because We as Auto hosting Bot providers felt drastic measures were needed to show how much value we bring to the Warcraft 3 community. Not only do we provide a stable host for all to enjoy where we endeavor to keep the games clear of griefers and trolls but we also strive to keep games competitive by adding ranking systems and tracking your stats to ensure a more enjoyable experience. Blizzard wants to remove Hosting bots from Warcraft 3. If they do, this is what it will be like for everyone. Fear not, for our services are only down temporarily but if we don't band together and convince Blizzard to change their mind, you will never be able to play that competitive custom game ever again. Official message from all the following communities: ENT Gaming, OHSystem, MYMGN, MMH, GhostPlay, Diplomunion.com, Werewolf Transylvania, MaulBot, Warcraft3.eu ------- Support us on the official Blizzard forum https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/12790218/ or share your opinions here: https://entgaming.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=135688 or leave your vote here: https://www.change.org/p/blizzard-return-hosting-bot-functionality-in-the-next-warcraft-3-patch

    Blizzard's tactics are so awful. Do they not think at all? If they kill the hosting communities, a very lot of people will leave and then Warcraft will surely be much more dead. Warcraft has survived in Blizz's absence

    Oh well. At least you'll all still have memories of it. Still, they supported it for almost 20 years. I guess it was time to pull the plug at some point.

    I hope they might be planning something at least, since there is no logical reason to kill off a game and its community, you're just losing profit. Which Blizzard doesn't like as per fact they have a pure gold logo hanging in their office.

    It really sucks for those who have been spending a lot of time making custom maps and never got to release them. For me it doesn't really matter as I don't have time and motivation to finish my projects anyway, but if this had happened back when I spent most of my free time on wc3 world editor it would really piss me off.

    Its a big problem. In the one hand, WC3 is quite still popular and have relatively big active community
    On the other hand, Blizzard cant make money out of it.

    It's all a conspiracy. They're purposely killing WC3 so we all convert into those Koreans in SC2.

    I am pretty sure they want to kill private servers this way
    Thats why they are also adding this
    Specific Changes & Improvements
    • Maps will now be uploaded and downloaded from the cloud
    • All custom games from all gateways are now visible in the lobby browser
    • Port forwarding is no longer required to host your favorite map
    • Encrypted network traffic


    Bug Fixes
    • Desyncs with certain custom maps resolved
    • Custom sound files with meta data play again
    • External links from Battle.net load
    • Breath of Fire translated in Italian


    Known Issues
    • Cloud downloads for mac causes the game to freeze if connecting to a windows host.
    • Arranged teams dont work (fix in progress)



    One thing they are forgetting trough is that bot commands are very important in hosting games
    When bots die so do their commands and then its rip
    Every hosted map will have autists intentionally ruining game for everyone or team killing

    It is, they will make it so we don't need to host with port forward or anything. But BOTS ARE BETTER

    I actually think its a nice change. Bots have alot of disadvantages. They crash, they create queues, they allow for admin abuse. And they demand people to open their browser and go online on MMH.

    I think more people will be likely to host games now. I for one, am not a doomsday prophet. I think Blizzard might even revive wc3 to its glory days :)
