    WarCraft III Megathread

    So with WC3R coming along, I figured now would be the best time to start a Warcraft III megathread, the first step into WC3 getting its own forum.
    And since WC3 things are also Warcraft things, the WoW GD is the best place to do so.

    Introductory questions:
    When did you start playing Warcraft as an RTS?
    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    What was the best mission from WC3?
    What race did you play in WC3?
    Favorite custom map?
    Have you purchased WC3R?
    What are you excited for in WC3R?
    What edition of WC3R have you purchased?
    Feel free to discuss anything Warcraft 3 related here.

    Also, since this is the megathread, enjoy this machinima.

    HYPETRAIN!!!

    Never played Wacraft as an RTS.
    Watching the Arthas campaign on Youtube when I first started playing WoW: Wrath of the Lich King.
    Don't know.
    Didn't.
    No.
    No? Not sure yet.
    None so far.

    Very hard to remember it precisely, but I played WC1/2 at a very young age when my dad bought games that we would both like to play

    Quote Originally Posted by Lilithvia View Post

    The very start and the ending of the games, having gone quite a difficult journey (WC3 wasn't as hard as WC1 and 2 though). As for multiplayer it was building up my own guild and meet a lot of new people who I still hang out with to this day

    Quote Originally Posted by Lilithvia View Post

    I'm not sure if I have one. Some of my favorites are The Culling, Frostmourne (final human mission), The Fall of Silvermoon, The Hunter of Shadows, A Destiny of Flame and Sorrow (I loved playing as Illidan), The Tomb of Sargeras, Lord of Outland and A Symphony of Frost and Flame

    Competitively I mostly played orc, who played heavier units compared to the others and required less macro. My second race was undead.

    Quote Originally Posted by Lilithvia View Post

    Thats a lot. I liked playing a lot of silly games like Uther's party and mazes like WarCraft Maul. I also played a lot of Castle Fight and Azeroth Wars competitively

    Not yet, I don't do pre-purchasing

    To see more life into the multiplayer community and maybe making new maps of my own

    wc3 was the first game i actually dedicated myself to play, enjoyed the fuck out of it and then branched into Wc3 battle.net for the custom maps (dota allstars, life of a peasant, vampirism)

    Introductory questions:
    When did you start playing Warcraft as an RTS?
    Probably 8 or 9, playing the first Warcraft

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    Playing a made up Warcraft D&D with friends in middle school, then in high school/college Dota LAN parties

    What was the best mission from WC3?
    Honestly don't know that I have a favorite.

    What race did you play in WC3?
    On the rare occasion that I played the actual RTS in multiplayer, night elf

    Favorite custom map?
    Probably spent the most time on DOTA and the various "hero battle" maps that preceded it, but I always loved the Tower Defense games.

    Have you purchased WC3R?
    Never pre-ordering a game from Blizzard again.

    What are you excited for in WC3R?
    I'll be interested to see what new custom maps people come up with, and/or replaying some of the old ones I used to love. Not sure if any of my old college friends plan on buying it and playing online, but if so it'd be fun to get a "long distance LAN party" going for old time's sake.

    What edition of WC3R have you purchased?
    See above.

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    Playing with my best friend in 2v2 ladder. We had some epic games

    What was the best mission from WC3?
    Not sure I have a favorite. The one with Sylvanas where you mind control everything really sticks out in my head for some reason.

    What race did you play in WC3?
    Scourge all day.

    Have you purchased WC3R?
    Of course

    What are you excited for in WC3R?
    I'm excited for the updated cutscenes the most. I like how they are making the main characters more unique. I am interested to see what the generic Blood Mage and Death Knight look like.

    Im hoping that this will put some life in the genre again, Sad that the RTS genre died out since I love it so much! Also hoping that blizzard will add mini campaigns into the game like they did with the nova missions in sc2 or even do a Coop commander system? Given how hugely popular it is in sc2.

    Also looking forward to modern updates to custom campaigns since the modding comminty for wc3 is still going strong today

    I'm really hoping that Reforged makes it. It seems designed to share the RTS slot Warcraft III already occupies, given that owners of the original WC3 will be able to play against Reforged users.

    When did you start playing Warcraft as an RTS?

    1994 MS-DOS

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?

    I don't like playing it multiplayer, but on the campaign, I remember being elated when I burned down Lordaeron in Warcraft 2 and King Terenas was so whiny "Guards" and then we killed him. That whole taking over the town was memorable. Basically those old Warcraft 2 cutscenes were so amazing at the time.

    What was the best mission from WC3?

    I like the three missions were Thrall meets Sen'jin and the Darkspear join. I usually have to save the campaign, then load those three maps, then go back to the campaign, else it makes no sense that the orcs leave the Eastern Kingdoms and suddenly arrive on Kalimdor armed with Darkspear trolls.

    What race did you play in WC3?

    Horde

    Favorite custom map?

    I never play them.

    Have you purchased WC3R?

    Yes.

    What are you excited for in WC3R?

    Seeing what Sen'jin actually looked like!

    What edition of WC3R have you purchased?

    The Collector's Edition
    Zandalari are now the right height! https://i.imgur.com/4Tgu3K0.jpg Thank you to everyone that helped make this happen! https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/...9447661?page=1

    Got a copy of WC3 at a LAN party in 2002 and played through the campaign

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    Countless nights on dialup internet climbing the Bnet ladder. Won a LAN competition

    What was the best mission from WC3?
    I honestly can't remember, I loved playing through the human campaign and making my way through Northrend to find Frostmourne, then the Undead campaign with Arthas

    What race did you play in WC3?
    Undead (Obviously)

    Favorite custom map?
    Does DOTA count?

    Yeah

    Not sure actually, I prefer the look of the original, maybe just the added connectivity with battle.net improvements

    God I don't know, I didn't play much but I remember when I was ~10 playing WC1 a bit on my friend's PC; the first one I bought for myself was WC3 in 2002, got into Blizzard ~2000 when everyone on my dorm floor was playing Starcraft and Diablo 2. Almost failed out of college because of them...

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    I just really loved the story.

    What was the best mission from WC3?
    NO CLUE! Most memorable was probably the Culling of Stratholme. Knocking down people's houses and slaughtering innocents? What are we becoming? But hey if you're going to do something, do it well!

    What race did you play in WC3?
    I could never settle in the multiplayer, really still preferred Starcraft for multi. Favorite was probably the Undead for their flexibility.

    Favorite custom map?
    *shrug* Didn't get that far into it

    Have you purchased WC3R?
    Yeah.

    What are you excited for in WC3R?
    Another chance to play through the story.

    What edition of WC3R have you purchased?
    Regular, their fancypants edition offers me nothing.

    "The Hunter of Shadows."
    What race did you play in WC3?
    Primarily Orc. Dabbled in Scourge.

    Introductory questions:
    When did you start playing Warcraft as an RTS?
    I think around 2003, not too long before World of Warcraft came out.

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    The amazing story being told throughout the game. I remember playing games like Age of Empires, where the story was mostly told between the missions, but the Warcraft story was actually told while playing through the missions. That made it such a great game for me compared to most RTS's of that time and the previous Warcraft games.

    What was the best mission from WC3?
    I think The Culling is famous for a good reason, as this is where we saw Arthas changing. I was also happy with the one where Sylvanas was turned, and I've always enjoyed Blackrock & Roll, Too, as it felt like a relaxed side-step out of the major storyline.

    What race did you play in WC3?
    Never played outside the campaigns.

    Favorite custom map?
    Never played outside the campaigns.

    Have you purchased WC3R?
    Not yet, still considering it.

    What are you excited for in WC3R?
    Updated graphics of the world and key characters. The world editor might push me to actually make a large-scale map for myself, but not sure.

    What edition of WC3R have you purchased?
    If i buy it, I'd probably buy the normal version, don't think I care much about the bonuses of the extended version.

    This thread was clearly not for you but you still felt the need to speak regardless. Why?

    1) I originally started with Warcraft Orcs and Humans but I was only about 4 years old (So around '96), thus didn't beat it. I later went back in beat it, but my first real passion was Warcraft 2. I played that shit religiously and did the same with WC3.

    2) Honestly some of my best memories were fucking around with the map editor, which I still do and still am making maps today. Lore-wise though my favorite was Illidan's first Metamorphosis and being a god in that mission for a brief moment.

    3) My personal favorite is a toss-up between the Culling of Stratholme, the Battle at Mt. Hyjal and the simpler Scourge mission where you retrieve the Urn of Arthas' father. The hidden Sasquatches is hilarious and so memorable. I loved the fall theme of it too.

    4) On B.net I always choose Random, but if I had to pick a favorite, probably Nelves. Unless you want to include Naga.

    5) There was an old Final Fantasy themed map, very mmo-esque, with a blend of FF Tactics elements and other "job upgrade" style things, with a focus on exploring/doing quests and stuff with your party over bnet. I can never find it again, though I remember one small aspect was that one of the jobs had a custom model which was Kimahri from FFX. I wish I could find that map again.

    6) Fuck yeah I did.

    7) I'm mainly looking forward to the revival in the competitive scene. Even thought about streaming some plays, if I can dust myself off and be meta again. Oh, and also looking forward to Jaina's 4k tits.

    8) I bought the collector's edition, meat wagon ftw.

    When did you start playing Warcraft as an RTS?
    during WC3.

    What are your favorite Warcraft RTS memories?
    The last mission of TFT. It was hard asf but when I finished it, I cried tears of joy.

    What was the best mission from WC3?
    Pretty much every mission was great. Arthas retrieving Frostmourne and Illidan becoming a demon.
    What race did you play in WC3?
    Night Elves.

    Favorite custom map?
    Dalaran.

    Have you purchased WC3R?

    I'll wait for more gameplay videos first.

    Cutscenes, specifically Arthas vs Illidan.

    it won't be CGI but I hope the fight resembles the one from the book Rise of the Lich King.

    What edition of WC3R have you purchased?
    Waiting for more gameplay videos to decide.

    Anyone excited for the cosmetic units/heroes, such as the Demon Huntress? (Same abilities/stats as DH, just with a female model and female voice-over), and thoughts on the upcoming changes to missions such as Culling of Stratholme?
    MoanaLisa would probably be infracting this post... just sayin.
