Warcraft III Loses Four Heroes
9:52 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
IMG readers who have been following our recent stories concerning Blizzard's upcoming RTS Warcraft III may remember that we originally reported that each race would have four heroes from which to choose from. Geoff Fraizer, webmaster for Blizzard's site, has recently posted a message in the forums at WarcraftIII.Net that announces a change to that number, bringing it down to three heroes per race.
The removed heroes are as follows:
- The Alliance - Elven Ranger
- The Horde - The Shadow Hunter
- The Night Elves - ArchDruid
The removed hero for The Undead has yet to be revealed.
Fraizer goes on to plead with readers not to inundate Blizzard's mailbox with cries of outrage, petitions, or other such messages begging for the return of these heroes. He notes that, above all, the designers of the characters themselves were the most disappointed about letting them go. He also notes that, believe it or not, the game is only getting better due to these changes, along with others that may or may not be announced.
