    Arrow Noob question (for real)

    Hey, I'm kind of new on d3scene and was wondering what garena is? So far I've only been able to read how to install it and how it works but not simply what it is, since it seems sort of implicit to everyone.

    As far as I've understood its a program that lets you host games and kick people, but does it run within battlenet?



    If someone could please explain it to me as simple as possible and try to minimize the flaming.

    Thanks,

    It's okay, I asked that as well, some months ago.

    Garena is a community platform, similar to Hamachi, which simulates a Local Area Network using the actual internet, so you play on the Garena servers, not the BNet servers. This actually just helps against lagging, a better Anti-Cheat software and a opportunity to play multiple games over the same servers, such as Starcraft, DotA, WC3 normal maps, HAWX, Age of Empires, BlackShot, etc.
