warcraftiii.net has a poll for this.

i think it should be the classic orc v. human, maybe in 3D. i would also like night elves, but hey, i can't have everything.

I think they need to have all four playable races represented, with maybe the demons looming in the background.

yea, i like kris's idea better. a big part of this game is that theres 4 races now, so the traditional orc/human thing wouldnt work now.

Remeber that poster that they accidentally had night elves listed as one of the races? Something like that would work (i believe they made that into one of the wallpapers on blizzard's war3 site).

They could always do a bunch of differant boxes too... like one for each differant race.

Update... Warlock posted right before me about that wallpaper... apparently we have the same idea.

what about a classic scene with the orcs vs humans in front, ne on right in the dark, undead on the left(cuz in the roman empire they thought that left was bad so there ya go) in purple smoke, and the undead in the center with flames...that is awesome!

I would like to see myself on the box cover. Personally, I just think I'd be much cooler to look at than any of the races.

In the unlikely event that I do NOT appear on the box, however, maybe they could have a human vs orc on the front and NE vs Undead on the back.. then one of those flip-out panels for the pix of the game and stuff.

A box with each race would be cool and in the background the BL on each one. Then on the collectors box the one Warlock showed, but it could be modified to add the night elves.

They havn't said it will be, but it just seems the likely choice. I mean, if you saw last year's E3, they had that poster up all over.. It would work out great as a box cover too (I mean, if you didn't know what the game was, and you saw that, wouldn't you want to buy it too? ) Hehe.. I suppose we'll see though. They might just make something original, like the faces that they always seem to do hehe.. I just think that's getting old

Maybe they should make it holographic, then it would really be in 3D, make it so the knight's sword almost pops out and pokes you in the eye.

Or, why name is pseudo 3D when they could actually make the box in the shape of an orc head, in all it's three dimensional glory.

A 3d orc head? Why stop there! I want to see each box be a life-sized carving with an actual steel sword and armor, hand-painted by Bill Roper himself.

Kayoss... you're funny!

I'd like it if they had different boxes showcasing different races. You know like StarCraft...
hmmm...
Then I would have a hard time choosing which one I want. But I liked that idea. Kinda gives you a 'limited edition' feel for the box.

i think having like 5 different boxes for the 5 races would be cool. human,orc,NE, and scourge. the 5th, the BL cover could be like limited edition, so there would be fewer and it would be cooler to own or something. im sure whatever blizzard chooses will be good. they usually do a good job on shit like dat.

I really think they will do one for each race. Not sure about the BL though. Since you can't play them.

If they had to put use just the face of 1 race, I would say Orc. They have the most changed/diverse storyline I think (prior dealings with Alliance, Scourge, and Burning Legion after all).

All 3 heads would be cool, especially in collectable 1-per box type distribution like Starcraft.

Or some symbol would be sweet too. I would like some crossed swords or axes or something (I was always fond of the original Final Fantasy box art for those old enought o remember).

But I hope they don't use that poster that's been around forever. While it has recognition going for it, I think it is just a sad reminder of how long we have been waiting for the game. Plus another downside is that it doesn't have the Night Elves in it.

What if they just had a black box, nothing else. People would buy it (msrp of $49.99) just to see what was inside.

Yeah, i always thought that they'd use the poster as a box design. I think if they do make four different designs, they'd use the ones they already have at their wallpaper section: The orc, the human and the night elf. They don't have a Scourge unit yet though.
On a place I found where you can pre-order it, they used the cinematic still of the orc yelling and just put the WarCraft III logo at the top. I don't think they'll use that.
