    I was wondering who in Macrumors plays War3, if you play Bnet please list you name.
    Also tell us a little bit about your playin style and favorite race.

    Come to Channel Macrumors so we can get games goin!

    My favorite race is Night Elves and I go for the Huntress Rush. I used to like Humans but they too weak:(

    hey Darksniper
    um well my w3 names is spuncan (duh) :rolleyes:

    uh my fav. race is now the orcs using a medium build and counter or rush grunt/raider, blademaster, and shamans (mmm bloodlust)
    I used to use undead but i decided i like orcs much better for various reasons.
    I also beleive that n.e. is suxxor due to their highly instant rushability that no fun a retarded. :(
    I've played one (unofficial) clan game which we lost do to what we speculate was cheating unfortunaty I forgot along w/ my teamates to save a replay but no matter.

    I'd play on Bnet if it would f**king work. :mad:

    I have version 1.01 and every time I try to log onto Bnet it says "Downloading Update" then "Downloading Failed."

    Wtf is going on?

    Have you gone to battle.net on the web to check for an update? There may be a patch that you can download manually.

    Yep, I've checked. The most recent version in 1.01.

    I had to manually install the first Bnet update (1.00 -> 1.01) because the auto-updater did not work.

    I'll be darned if I have to go out and buy it again just to play on Bnet.

    Try calling Blizzard, that may be your best bet. It really sucks that it does not work.
    I will add those of you who have replied to my friends list, be sure to do the same.

    Spuncan would you explain to me why you don't like ne? I don't think I understand you. I think you say u don't like em because they have good rush.

    Remove the program completely and the preference files(OSX) and reinstall the thing(it only takes five minutes) then download the patch direct from blizzards site, then do it manually, then hop on bnet.

    yes macmaniac u heard right i don't like ne for their rushability. Myself I liker medium rush that isn't like minute into game attacks or sooner more like 2 or 3 mins when u can actually build (guess thats just the nature of orcs). 1v1 online I agree ne is the only way to go other wise ur messing w/ ur first couple unis while ur enemy has 12 units attacking :eek:
    Next time Im on (tommorow night) ill add u to my friends list.

    It should work after that..no way you have a bum copy. As long as your an OSX gamer then my advice is sound.

    Hello.. I battle.net, my name is chibianh. I don't have a favorite race, yet, nor or playing style... yet. As Macmaniac and a few others have witnessed, I have a lot of learning to do, lol. Anyway, everytime I am on battle.net I always drop by the macrumors channel. My DSL line has been down the last couple of days so I haven't been on. Hopefully, it will be back up when I get home today so I can spend the weekend catching up and hopefully get back to 50% wins.. lol

    yeah, i love Warcraft 3. and it's the first Warcraft i've ever played. my favourites are the undead so far. i'm sure the orcs are better though, but i'm only up to level 3 in the orc campaign.

    Orcs are weak when they start off, but they get really strong if you know how play with them. Night Elves are great at early rush, I love huntress rush:)

    I will be back home in 9 days then I can play with you guys.
    Typing on this computer in a cafe is hard IBM junk:(
