Warcraft 3 Zoom not equal to Supreme Commander/Demigod Zoom. Not by a long shot...
Correct, but you also don't need it because you can click on the minimap and it will zoom to that spot for you. Something that demigod doesn't do
You need to zoom so much in demigod so you can see what is going on everywhere, with war3, if you see a red dot on your minimap, you click it and you can see whats going on, you can even order units VIA the minimap.
You also need to zoom so much because towers, flags, and Rook's clutter your view so much it makes it near impossible to target what it is that you really want to target without having to zoom and get a clear view of it. yes you can hover your mouse around until you see the siloute of the item you want to cast a spell on, but if it's a time sensitive issue you cannot afford the luxury of time.
