    Hello Humans and Vampires,

    For those of you wondering why you are unable to play that game of Legion TD, Vampirism or Dota you were so looking forward to, It is because We as Auto hosting Bot providers felt drastic measures were needed to show how much value we bring to the Warcraft 3 community. Not only do we provide a stable host for all to enjoy where we endeavor to keep the games clear of griefers and trolls but we also strive to keep games competitive by adding ranking systems and tracking your stats to ensure a more enjoyable experience.

    Blizzard wants to remove Hosting bots from Warcraft 3. If they do, this is what it will be like for everyone. Fear not, for our services are only down temporarily but if we don't band together and convince Blizzard to change their mind, you will never be able to play that competitive custom game ever again. We will be protesting by turning off the Vampirism Fire hostbot for 48 hours.

    Official message from all the following communities:

    ENT Gaming, OHSystem, MYMGN, MMH, GhostPlay, Diplomunion.com, Werewolf Transylvania, MaulBot, Warcraft3.eu

    You can help support us by sharing your opinion on the official Blizzard forum here: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/12790218/

    Hey guys, now that Blizzcon is coming closer, I think this is when Blizzard want to roll out the new patch right?
    Do we know what will happen to VFG hostbot then?

    i think the hostbots will stop working but you need WC3Hostbot to start playing again (they will still be at version 1.30.1)
