Nothing wrong with playing old classics. WC3, however, I would not consider a good classic. It had a lot of neat new features for a RTS but the combination of which wasn't something I found fun. I'd still play SC if I can still find the discs and I can meet someone to game with on bnet other than koreans.

DOTA sucks ass. Worst. Community. Ever.

to thenewguy001 : I think what makes WC3 lasts through time (was the same with SC) is its customization. With the Frozen Throne, it give an absolute freedom to game creators (which explains why fear SC2 won't be as customizable...)

Yes, DOTA community is horrible (many kids playing, rage-qutting is quite easy) but the game itself is pretty good. How many DOTA clones are there, now?...

The customizability only helps custom maps. classic ranked ladder play just isn't fun to me for some reason. Whereas in SC I never really got tired of playing ladder matches in my clan. It was just fun.
