The demonic threat has been banished from the battle-scarred fields of Azeroth, but peace is still a distant dream. Now the war rages on, with more units, more missions, and more explosive strategic combat.

About Warcraft 2.5 with 3 comments by TaShadan on Oct 12th, 2014

Welcome to the World of Warcraft 2.5. Bringing back the battle for Azeroth over land, sea and air.

I started this project in 2009 called "Warcraft No Heroes". At first I just removed the heroes and the creeps but I did not enjoy the outcome. A friend of mine gave me the idea to take a more Warcraft 2ish /Broodwarish approach. The result was "Warcraft 2.5" a fast paced oldschool rts game. I had a playable version in 2010 but I waited with the release on moddb until I had 3 factions playable in March 2012. Now I release my most recent Version with 4 playable factions and several new features which were not part of the original Warcraft III, but were part of other rts games. Some examples are following here:

1. I added advanced tooltips to every unit, showing most of the unit stats

Advanced Tooltips

2. Changed armor/damage system and stats

Normal weapons do 100% damage to all armor types.
Light weapons do 100% damage to light armor, 50% damage to medium and 25% damage to heavy armor.
Heavy weapons do 50% damage to light, 75% to medium and 100% damage to heavy armor.

3. reworked the old spells and abilities and added completely new ones

For example the new Wizard ability "invisibility aura" . Providing invisibility to all surrounding units except the Wizard itself.

Wizard Invis aura

4. buildable flying and naval transports

Flying transports

5. yes naval units are back too with special naval maps

Elven Destroyer
Orc Navy

and many more.

6. units inside a transport die if the transport was destroyed

Yes they die!

7. foodcap 200 / no upkeep

They will not get paid!

8. capturable resource facilities like oil derricks and buildings where you can hire mercs

Oil and mercs!

A merc camp with creeps defending it.

While capturing the progress is indicated by a bar.

9. several new units/models and skins

New footman.
New Elven Ranger model
New peasant/peon
Death Knight
New elven archer model

and many more.

Now featuring a installer you will not have any trouble to install or uninstall the mod. Check it out!

Unfortunately I will not be able to work on this project alone anymore. I will need help especially for balancing, new icons, better AI and new maps.

Thank you for your attention!

The Naga are being expanded. Currently they are missing one unit upgrade. I am also unsatisfied with the Naga air game so that will be my next priority.

*facepalm* Lotr has been out way before warcraft1 was even a thought little alone WC3.

Never read a book? Never watched a few movies? Heck there is a old NES game based off of it..

Let me guess, your one of those people who thinks blizzard was the first to make "Night Elves" even though they are a huge rip-off of Wood Elves from TONS of other games that came before.. *sighs*

Dont get me wrong I like the game, I just hate stupidity.
