WarCraft III Interview
6:00 AM | Seth Scott | Comment on this story

Worthplaying has posted a WarCraft III Q&A which briefly covers some interesting questions, including the role of the beta testing team in achieving game balance and the possibility of an expansion. Here is an excerpt:

How will WarCraft III on Battle.net be different from previous Blizzard games?

We've added several enhanced features, including Friends List, Arranged Teams, and Observer Mode. One important goal we had for Warcraft III's multiplayer experience, however, was to ensure that everyone could go on Battle.net(R) and have a great time regardless of their ability or preferred style of gameplay. A new feature, called Anonymous MatchMaking (AMM) will allow players to find a competitive game quickly and easily by automatically checking a player's record and setting them up against another player, anonymously, with a similar record. Of course players can still set up games in the more traditional ways, but we suspect that many players will find that AMM really enhances their experience on Battle.net.

WarCraft III is scheduled for release for the Mac and PC on July 3rd.
