More Details on the Large Warcraft III Update from Blizzard

Below are the initial details of the large update that Blizzard has just implemented into Warfract III, minus some info on map pools and other minor additions. Overall, the reception to these changes has been met with a lot of praise on their own forums with only the most hardcore of hardcore players taking umbrage. The biggest change to this comes in the form of 24-player lobbies, making battlefields a lot smaller than they already were in some respects. Those of you who are more creative types might be enjoying the changes made to the world editor as well. Check out all the changes they've made that might entice some former players to come back.
