Why do I need higher FPS in Warcraft 3?
Higher FPS rates look more fluently if we watch movies or play games! For our eyes, a frame rate below 30 looks just wrong or irritating.
Real life has about 40-60 FPS, studies say humans can interpret up to 150 frames per second, while the brain is capable to see even 1000 frames per second. Everything above 60 FPS should just be exactly for fluent transitions, but not for different images, it can confuse and damage our brain.
