The Protectors is a stand-alone mod of the game Warlords Battlecry 3 (i.e. it can be run without having the original game installed - 100% free full mod). It is an improved RTS/RPG game with new campaigns, quests, terrain, units, items, heroes, modding features and more. Beta versions available for download!
I've been a huge fan of Warlords Battlecry II and III. The protectors is a mod for WBC III which brings some nice ideas to the original game such as an improved hero leveling-system, balance changes (in the first skirmish I played to try this mod out, I ran into barbarian war hounds which were strong and pretty useful, compared to their weaksauce-version in WBC III) and the re-introduction of bronze and zinman-mode.
The new perk system brings an interesting twist to alter your playstyle. You can, for example, choose to produce units faster but for a higher cost (and vice versa).
I haven't tried the chapters yet, so I won't comment on that.
I think you guys doing great job. Just dont give up. I want to see version 1.0 and play it.
I like the changes you have made and the effort put in.
But I don't really like the ballance changes and the direction it has gone.
It is the revival of the great Warlords Battlecry games through community. Loved the originals as they are unique RTS RPG blended genre as no other game came close enough for me to have same level of fun playing it, except Spellforce. I am hoping this will be as good and less buggy then the originals. And they have added the original campaign for wbc3 in this mod and I am hoping wbc1 campaign to be also coming to this mod, now also the ability to add custom campaigns the same way original can be added so single players and stories can be done on more than 1 timeline and direction :). Rest is to be played to be found out by readers :) it brings all 3 together into this one. Hopefully we may come to call it wbc3.5
See you all in the battle field hopefully.
I speack English very bad, but this site whants me to write somthing...
The mod is very good thing. It is a future of Warlords Battlecry III.
A promising mod, I'd rate more but moddb wouldn't let me, keep up the good work man. although I rather wish there was a custom char chapter, so you could play as whatever hero you wanted. Also, could you do something to make some of the classes more enticing? I feel like dragonslayer daemonhunter and inquisitor are rather wanting... maybe give em a special sphere of magic they alone can use? And maybe some more voice-banks for chars? They are mega ridiculous.
The Protectors is a standalone mod/sequel to what I believe is one of the best RPG/RTS hybrids in a long time. It expands on the ideas and brings balance to all the different modes of play to the game. I'm looking forward to further releases and can only hope for the best. Thank You for all your hard work!
The game is becoming more strategic it has lots of sides quests and items.
I'll be damn. This is hidden jewel in sea of mods.
The image so old guys.
I hope one day your quality of graphics it will be like a StarCraft2
