    Yeah, that game rocks. I only know the humans so far. But i'm trying to learn the other races.

    My battle.net name is Cold_Voltage on the US West server. Message me if I'm online.

    Undead ;)

    set a butt load of magic users into battle with 'Raise Dead' set to auto

    for everything that dies... 2 are raised to fight on your side

  7. I'm a Terran man myself, thankyouverymuch. In fact I was once pretty good at launching base attacks with Siege Tank backing from two different sides. Totally ****** with your opponment if he wasn't a computer. :)

    Right, WC3. I preferred Orcs in one and two... that count?

    I think I'll second that Undead vote. Yeah, the Necromancer's Raise Dead on Autocast totally ROCKS! The Undead hero's Vampiric Aura makes a huge difference too! (If your unit damages another, a percentage of that damage gets added to your unit's health)

    But the real kicker is the Ghoul's ability to Consume corpses to regain health.

    Brrrraaaaiiinnnnssssssss....

    I beat it without much trouble... just a couple of redos. I'm playing Mafia right now OMFG! it's the most amazing game I've seen. like GTA3 meets Max Paine but with life like graphics and realism (if you speed or run a red light in the presence of a cop... you need to pull over, get out of the car and pay the ticket)

    ne are deffinately the best, if you can get it going... they're pretty slow, all you need then is mass huntresses and archers... and a priestess of the moon lvl 6 so you get starfall, game over

    IMO that's the 2nd hardest level in the game (hardest being the very last).

    I won by building a bunch of spirit towers, using land mines, and with a couple minutes to go, "rallying the wagons" around the lich sorcerer. YMMV!

    I just bought the game today, looking good. I'm in mission 5 or so in human campaign, destroying the human city, to prevent the necromancer gaining the citizens who are turning to undeads.

    Definetly more RPG elements than in any RTS I have seen until this - much more than in Dungeon Siege! - the only negative point being that the camera is bit too low for my taste.
     
  18. I just started playing this one, so I won't vote - all I know are humans thus far.

    Protoss for SC, though!

    I'm dying to try Mafia, however I suspect my TBird 1.33/512mb/32mb GeForce II GTS will be choking on it...

    Wanna know something especially cool about WCIII? I completed the game @1024x768 on a P2 400MHz CPU (384MB RAM, geforce2 Ti 250MHz/64MB AGP video). Graphics certainly weren't maxxed, but they weren't min either.

    Got a little choppy on the very last level but I made it through!
     
  20. I don't see why your computer would have any trouble with mafia, you have pretty much the same setup as me and I can run games with the same requirements as mafia no problem with the graphics maxed.
