Default Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne

The Warcraft expansion has been out a month now (I'm now finally ordering it) - when Reign of Chaos came out we had a huge thread, does anyone here have the expansion now? Am I the only one still playing Warcraft (classic or Throne)? I'd love to play a few games with forum members, battle.net is so competetive it's hard to get a good old fashioned fun game. Anyway, my new account is Ascetic on europe server, but I play on US sometimes, so if anyone wants a game, put your account down here.

I have the expansion, i got it for my b-day (july 27th).
my advice about single player is play it on hard mode, don't touch normal mode. i finished the whole first campaign in one day on normal mode (wasn't my first time through though). Also those bonus campaigns are adictive as hell.

I'm:
DaPlaya on Lorderon

I'm entering The Frozen Throne Torunament 1 on 1 that will be happening this weekend (the 9th or something) on Lorderon Battle.net.
The tournaments are quite fun things to play (i did try the 2 on 2 but it was rather hard to find a team mate).

Very good expansion. The normal campaign is a bit easy, but very well done. Gotta love the Crypt Lord too .

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos & The Frozen Throne Patch Update
Now that the Diablo II 1.10 patch is available on Battle.net, the next Warcraft III update, patch 1.13, has gone into the final stages of testing. The patch will include many significant additions, including Acts II and III of the Orc Campaign, several new World Editor features, updates to many of the maps, and numerous balance adjustments. We expect it to be released in the next few weeks. Prior to the patch’s release, we will also be changing the lineup of maps currently available for ladder play.

In addition to the patch, we will also be releasing the art tools used for Warcraft III. These tools will allow advanced users to create and implement new art in the game, adding an unprecedented level of customization.

As always, we thank you for your patience and support.
and a bonus for custom game developers (Custom Games in some cases outclass the normal multiplayer. Hell, one custom game set (Defense of the Ancients) had mods that blizzard used when they made Frozen Throne (Where do you think the "Blink" ability came from? DotA)

Please note that Blizzard does not directly support the Warcraft III Art Tools, and the technical support staff will not be able to respond to any related inquiries. However, detailed and illustrated instructions on how to use the software are included with the download, and we have also created a new forum for Warcraft III Art Tools users.

It's an entertaining expansion pack, yes, but it didn't capture my interest. RTS games don't tend to. I thought the tower defense secret level was...interesting.

i have to say i did love the first level in the orc campaign when i played it for the first time, it alomst seems like they are attempting to blend warcraft 3 into world of warcraft style gameplay .. i cant wait for that next patch, then only 2 more levels remaining before i can finish the orc campaign fully.

anyone tryed playing a 12 player free for all, with just you and 11 INSANE class AI players?
they're not that hard to defeat overall.
