View Full Version : WarCraft III patch v 1.03

This patch is so lopsided against the humans. They got a hero "upgrade" so it cost less for invicibility but the mana regeneration got knocked down.
And the undead seem more impossible to fend off. What's everyone else's view?

Orcs are now going to be the most underrated race. They were TOO powerful before. All you need to do is go Witch Doctors and Shaman and you win (practically). They were weakened, but not as much as most people think, imo. It just means that you need something other than just Shaman and Doctors. Try Tauren for a change.
Humans, got a slight shaft, but they are still one of the most powerful early game races.
Undead, well, they are the most powerful now, and deservedly so, mainly because they have the most complicated tech tree. If you don't know how to use it properly, it doesn't matter how powerful they are.
Night Elves... well, what can I say? Bring back the burn. :bawl:

No Humans got the shaft badly!
They raped the Arch Mage every way they could, making the mana regen slower and less reliable. Though the low cost of Divine shield, the main range unit for humans was almost wiped out(water elementals). The arch mage has less mana to summon these beasts which causes the Humans weakness to be air. Yes they have Gyro but it is out of the way for most, would have to divert if being attacked w/ air to riflemen or gyro/gryphon. They could have lowered the price a little or added 1 more armor to riflemen to balance, but nope...just had to rape the best hero for the humans leaving them helpless to the too powerful gargoyals. Oh yeah, the pali was just a supporst caster, not how it was ment to be, that is why they lowered mana cost on DS so he would be an asset to melee armies....

I think for the lower echelon players, there isn't much difference to be seen. Until you get to a certain level, it is more about how you execute rather than what you do with what race. And as far as I'm concerned, humans still have one of the most powerful units--and underrated--in the game: Gryphon Riders.

Nah Gryphon are good, but undead have best anti air unit in the game now, second orcs have wyvren +lust...so gryphon are only good for suprise. pull em out of your pocket for a few mins to stun the guy, then put them back in.
Right now, just lost to undead. I really think they made them to powerful, gargs have way to much dmg output, and ghouls with auto cast frost are unstopable...just way to riged like orcs where. Funny, couldnt really beat orcs that fast, now its undead..+they got the best defense in game :confused:
