Wasn't there already one called Wold of Starcraft, which Blizzard shut down? I remember reading about it.. might not have been an MMO though.

@Danteeeee Didnt read the last part, and cure the lack of an edit button. Wonder if it's the same one with a different name

@Danteeeee This is the same mod. He had to change World of Starcraft to Starcraft Universe is all.

Entirely instanced based, with 12 players maximum, no character leveling (some points based system is implemented I guess). Not really a MMO. More of a PVE MOBA.

It's probably a mmo in the same vein that Guild Wars is a mmo, which it is.

If it's good people won't care what it's called and that you can only see 12 players on the screen at a time.

@extispex that's all you can say about an MMO (yes, mmo) made with a map editor of an RTS ?

I don't know what you mean, but yes, I don't think it really belongs on a site like Massively. When it was thought to be an actual persistent mmo, and not an instanced based coop, sure. I also don't think MOBAs should be included here. These are not MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER. Even Global Agenda shouldn't be included. I have the choice to read this site, and the choice to express my opinions. In my opinion, this is not an MMO. In your opinion it is. That's fine.

So I am interested to know whether characters created through this map (or is it a collection of maps?) is persistent or not? If it is not persistent then I don't see how it can be called an MMO... however... the gameplay footage looks really promising.

@extispex " I don't think it really belongs on a site like Massively"

so I guess you paint Guild Wars with that brush too?

@real65rcncom You do know GW1 creators have even openly said it's not an MMO, GW1 isn't an MMO and this doesn't seem to be one either

@Vgk Don't get me wrong though, an actual Starcraft MMO sounds like an interesting idea

Games like Diablo, COD, newer BFs, Crysis 2 all feature persistent characters. Does that make them MMOs?

Well, glad to see this thing of World of Starcraft/Universe and the guy who made it, Webzen, finally sorted out for the best.

Pretty cool!

Blizzard is letting him do his own thing until the time comes where enough people get interested then Mr. Winzen will land himself a job at Blizzard.

I'm still annoyed that Starcraft 2 lacks the amazing Hero system of WC3. Means custom maps will be more generic and less exciting unless people spend an eternity on developing the maps.

Hopefully by fall there'll be some actual fun/well-done customs out there.

And damn, that looks amazingly close to WoW's UI and such in the video. Really hoping more map makers start pumping out quality like this.

Though it would be nice to see a leveling RPG similar to the "Open RPG" maps on Warcraft 3.

@Sorithal I've always heard that the Hero system is still in the map editor, just not used in the main game. But maybe that was removed before release.
