StarCraft II continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival. Featuring a unique single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II will present a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in an edgy sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. In addition, Blizzard will again offer unparalleled online play through Battle.net, the company's world-renowned gaming service, with several enhancements and new features to make StarCraft II the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game.

Chronicles of Azeroth- Dark Peninsula


The next milestone has been reached: Warcraft 2 alpha demo

The Tides of Darkness has arrived to your base brave captain. The orcish horde besieged Lordaeron and the one who will decide the fate of the war is you! Join to the fight by searching for Coa or Wc2 on the European Starcraft 2 Arcade. Now lets talk about the release and other important news.

Why is it a demo?

This version of the remake exclude three units and a building for both factions. The following units and buildings will be added later:

  • Submarine/Giant Turtle
  • Dwarven Demolition Squad/Goblin Sappers
  • Gryphon Riders/Dragons
  • Gryphon Aviary/Dragon Roost

Additionally some stuff may be less polished yet.

So there is naval warfare, oil etc?

yes there is, you have every other features of the multiplayer game.

The Map:

Wc2 original

Dark peninsula is a direct port of the Warcraft 2 map with the same name. It's a 4 player map with multiple gold mines and limited (but useful) amount of water. Note that you need naval to reach some of the expansion sites.

Gameplay modes

As in the Warcraft 1 remake, the host can choose between Classical and Modern Gameplay. Classical means you have the original rules of Warcraft 2: 9 unit selection limit (1 building), no Rally point, no Building queue. The modern gameplay mode gives you the advancements of Starcraft2: unlimited selection, rally points and building queue.

Meanwhile: Warcraft 1 mod status

The multiplayer map got some updates:

  • you can choose your race
  • fixed many bugs came with 3.0 patch of Starcraft2
  • starting place selection removed
  • spearman got a better model

Also I'm working on updating the Warcraft 1 campaign maps to the newest mod version, but its a time consuming job.

Current and Future Plans:

  • Add the remaining stuff for wc2, fix any bug encountered, polish
  • Update the finished wc1 campaign maps to the newest mod version the multiplayer use

Also i have many goals that i can NOT reach without others help! Currently I'm alone working on this mod, that means no terrainer, no artist and the only data/trigger guy is me. Simply it isn't enough to finish the remakes properly. So i'm looking for team-mates for the following goals. How many of these goals we can reach depend on the team i can gather.

  • giving decent art assets for remaining units and buildings for wc1 and wc2
  • finish remaining wc1 campaign maps (around 5-6 orc one)
  • add AI
  • create wc2 campaign
  • wow based mod

So I'm looking for team members:

  • Artists (2D and 3D)
  • Terrainers
  • people who are expert in Triggers and/or Ai
  • Expert Data makers (mainly in spells, damage and actors)

Can someone help me out? I would like a mod that just changes the Marine rifle sound back to the SC1 noise, it just sounded so much cooler. Has anyone done that yet? Thanks.

Warcraft 3 if you love mods/clans and fun stuff, sc2 for ranked traditional matches and such.

Crysis if you are trigger happy. Personally I find strategy games to have more variety than FPS and that you can play them in a more relaxed manner.

I recommend Medieval II, I find the game to much more entertaining than StarCraft II. Not only are the graphics realistic. The system requirements aren't as high for the game. Take a look at a few YouTube videos and tell me what you think. The game is also much cheaper too.

Excellent game with immense modding future. The single player is great and original(although the story is not.) The Multiplayer is also great as the game has achievements, a massive esports community, and great custom game features.
