I'm not pleased to see WoS there, and not being uploaded by RCX but some "public provider." Not. Pleased. At all.

WOS is copyright right?  Got to be something you can do to pull it off that horrible site.

It's not about "copyrights" it's about respect.

Or.. I could ask them nicely how it got up there in the first place.

There are campaigns under 'Maps' at WC3C.  Its just at a different level then the SC community in its prime where there were a few really famous campaigns.  Plus, I imagine a lot of people have so much trouble just trying to grasp the basics that they can't even think about voices and such.  Also, for some reason, that community places a huge emphasis on terrain.

Personally, if a campaign doesn't have nice, playable, and clean terrain eye-candy, interesting spells, and a solid introductory map, I usually quit before the story has a chance to pique my interest. I know, it's pretty shallow but it's usually a good indication of what's to come in the campaign. Honestly, I can usually bear crummy terrain if there's some voice acting, but I still like good spells, and fun heroes.

My pretty high standards are probably the reason for my lack of experience actually playing much Warcraft. Literally, for every minute I spent playing wc3, I probably spent half an hour in WE. Honestly, I could probably say the reason I bought WC3 was WE, I know it's the reason I haven't uninstalled.

As much as I dislike DotA, if they made a DotA campaign, it would probably be a real gem.

Some SC campaigns were just epic, I don't think any Warcraft ones are. I didn't enjoy playing the campaign, either. (save for the TFT Night Elf one)

Well, the WoS situation was solved simply by asking. See Inuyasha7, not too difficult to just request things.

My standards are even higher.

If, within the first three maps, it looks like the author has no idea how to use a trigger, it is automatically bad, no matter how pretty it looks or how custom the spells are.

I have rarely seen a campaign I enjoyed playing that made extensive use of eye candy. Eye candy is there to enhance something that is already there, not to cover for it.

Three maps? THREE? First impression is the biggest for me. First map.

Try To The Bitter End. It's a really good campaign, but hard as heck!

Yeah, I'm new (no blasted introductory forum).
