This is an alternative to battlenet. You can play the demo in its multiplayer entirety. It is an excellent way to learn the ins and outs before the actual copy arrives on store shelves. Do in fact purchase this game when it arrives on shelves. Just start learning how to play now and kick on battlenets ladder when available.
Punk, your reply is noted. I simply gave an ACURATE answer to the post. Warcraft 3 Beta is available for anyone to play on the Battlenet D server network. As of this writing it can be downloaded through a FREE, LEGALL file sharing program. You do not need to be a beta tester. It is fun, fast, and good practice for the real version soon to arrive.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
