Does anyone still play Warcraft III?

I've been missing it for years but I feel like if I buy it now that no one will be on it <_<

Being a Blizzard game, I can all but guarantee there will be a small, diehard group of players still playing the game. I don't know if you'd want to play against them though, unless you've been playing little but Warcraft III in your spare time.

I wouldn't want to play the main game, I would want to play games like LOAP (Life of a Peasant) and the tower defense games :]

There are still enough people to find ladder matches and custom games still fill all the time. There are still some communities that run game nights with custom games.

With that said...
- If you don't join an active community, you will be stuck with the same ~10 custom games that are hosted by bots 24/7.
- No one joins custom games that are not hosted by bots.
- Cheaters are probably more common than legitimate players.
- Servers are iffy. IIRC, US East ladder was down for weeks a few months back.

In short, WC3 isn't the awesome experience it used to be. If you wanted what WC3 once was, you are too late. If you are okay with playing with a dedicated small community/communities, then there is still that.

There's always Garena.

My roomate still plays it all the time. He usually plays the Risk games or LOTR Helms deep.
