We cut Undead because at the time Warcraft 3 was new and we considered them a competitor, so we wanted to separate ourselves from them to make DoF look more original. We didn't anticipate it would take another 7 years to finish the game

Maakvir were the Undead replacements that we threw in to be original, balancing issues as stated in the article were the reason for the cut, because we didn't want to have to commit to putting in large water bodies in each map to accommodate them, as well as it would very easy for players to find their bases; find the lake, you find the Maakvir.

Interesting, I thought the Undead were thought up later.
Looking forward to seeing them.

The maakvir could build buildings on land and water and all units exel at swimming and have a bonus in water while on land they are weaker but they can train units that lose there water skills and land penalty

I reckon that if any of the races should be re-implemented (other than dragons) then it should be minotaurs!! minotaurs are awesome!

Well all DoF races use magic. Some more than others, like the Elves are more into magic than the men. And the Undead would have really relied on magic.

I don't see why they wouldn't be. Probably all game units plus maybe some cheat and scrapped units will be in the editor.
