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, 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- The Black Morass

First release of Warcraft Orcs and Humans remake

Noble Knights and savage Grunts of Azeroth, the time has finally come to experience our Warcraft 1 remake on Starcraft 2 arcade. With the recent patch Blizzard released their official Warcraft 3 art assets which allowed us to fill the resources we were missing. In the past month we ran a PTR test of the mod and got positive reviews. We are ready to take it to the next level with many changes compared to the PTR test version. Read the article then look for „COA" or „Wc1" on Starcraft 2 Arcade.


Gameplay modes

Our goal was to recreate Warcraft 1 the closest we can but we received some mixed opinions about parts of the original gameplay. Meanwhile some people wanted to experience the exact old gameplay, many person pointed on the parts that didn't age so well. As the result of these reviews we implemented two gameplay mode, The Classic and Modern one. At the creation of the game the host can choose between these two option.
Classic: Are you a Warcraft 1 veteran? Do you want to experience the game as it was in 1994? Then Classic mode is for you! This mode includes every limit you had in the original game. Unit selection is limited to four units, There are no Rally Points, Buildings don't have queue.
Modern: You always wanted to try the classic game but the hard control scared you away? Do you want the gameplay more resemble to today's standards. Then try Modern mode. The controls are exactly the same as Starcraft 2. No selection limit, Rally points and five building queue.

The map.

Our first map is set in the iconic swamp of Azeroth. Black Morass is the place where the orcs found their way into the kingdom of Azeroth. Medivh opened the dark portal. Today you can't find Black Morass on the map as it is divided into the Blasted Lands and Swamp of Sorrows. The Portal slowly drained every energy around itself. It is designed for 2v2 gameplay . There are ten Gold Mines on this map (the four starting ones+ six additional one). Note that in Warcraft 1 you have only one Town Hall, therefore the more Gold Mine you deplete the more your workers have to travel. Prepare for a fight for the mines in longer games. In the lobby you can choose your start location. Start location 1 and 2 are on the left side of the map, 3 and 4 are the right ones. Please ALWAYS choose your start location or your units won't spawn.

TerrainDark Portal

Future plans

We are planning continuous update on the mod with adding new arts, adding more options into the lobby and fixing any bug we experience. In future version we hope to open the race picking too but first we need Blizzard to fix custom races in lobby. We also seek to finish the campaign so you can experience 24 mission of the first war. Those who love Warcraft 2 Tides of Darkness and Beyond the Dark Portal i can assure that the multiplayer remake is in progress.


How to play COA-Black Morass

Our mod is playable on Starcraft 2 Arcade on the Europian server. Since Blizzard made it available for free, all you need is to install Starcraft 2 Starter Edition (I recommend to buy the full game and its expansions to enjoy the full experience of Starcraft 2). In the menu click on Arcade and search for „COA" or „Wc1". Create a game (or click play game to find and open game) choose the gameplay mode and make it open for players. Note: you need to connect to the europian server.
Please make sure everyone picked a start location and you can't see „CHOOSE" in the lobby.


Thank you for reading this article and hope you will participate in the first war between Orcs and Humans.

There won't be a 4th playable race. There will likely be a 4th race in the form of special campaign units, a la burning legion for wc3, though.

Don't it look pretty? I never actually played SC1, but after seeing this in action, I'm seriously considering picking this one up. ;)

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.
