    haite meant the Azjol-Nerub...it's a class of Undead, it may be new to Haite... but Crypt Fiends are of the same descent. It's like ogres in WC2... they aren't orc, but they belong under that race. Azjol-Nerub is spider-like beings.

    Too many new races, too fast. Warcraft II introduced like 3 or 4. Counting all the Creeps in Warcraft III, there's probably at least 20 new races, and didn't provide any background.

    There was an explanation in the Warcraft II manual (those cool in-character histories from Gul'Dan and Aegwyn's perspectives) and from actual missions in the game as to how all the races came to be allied with the horde, how the death knights were created, etc.

    In Warcraft III it's like "check it out, there's 20 new races we've never seen before, whatever, that's cool".

    Blizzard is being influenced by the rampant trend of pasted-together action games that appeal to a general audience.

    I agree with your statement haite. But they were introduced in the regular non-expansion WC3. not new.

    None specified!

    While we're on this silly debate I'll mention this. I bought the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy today. The few pages I read had me rolling.

    thats the way the book actually is. The author made it that way as another joke to the bounty of laughs wrapped in the book.

    It goes:
    1. The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    2. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
    3. Life, the Universe, and Everything
    4. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
    5. Young Zaphod plays it Safe (it's really not related to anything in the rest of the series but oh well)
    6. Mostly Harmless

    ...all in all, it should have stayed a three-book trilogy.

    all in all we'll see what I think about it when I finish it. It got losts of attention, not lots of "well, it was half good and half crap", so i'll see how i like it.
