The chronicles of Azeroth include the remake of the three original Warcraft game (orcs and humans, Tides of Darkness+Beyond the Dark Portal, Reign of Chaos+Frozen Throne) and new ones based on wow lore (vanilla-Temple of Ahn'qiraj, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm + maybe future wow expansion) with campaign and multiplayer melee gameplay.

Brave soldiers of Azeroth, It's been a long time since our message-bearers managed to sneak behind the battle fronts the last time.
Even though We didn't have the proper time to update our moddb site, those who follow us on facebook may already know that
we've been busy this summer and autumn, putting out mayor contents for both of our Warcraft 1 and Warcraft 2 remake. Finally We've got
a bit of free time to make this article and share these great news with our moddb community.

Warcraft 1 Orc Base

Multiplayer AI

One of the most requested feature was the implementation of computer players. We made the first step and added computer players to both remakes.
Ai players build, train, research and send attack waves against their enemies since summer on land and air. For Warcraft 2, naval ai works on the Dark Peninsula map,
for Fierce Ocean Combat please wait for a later patch. In the future we plan to further improve our computer players.

Warcraft 1 Orc Lumber Mill comes in a future patch


New Arts

Chronicles of Azeroth recieved many new arts. Most of the Warcraft 1 structures are already live and Warcraft 2 received Berserker, Human Transport ship and Gnomish Submarine.
The next patch will include further new models including the Orc Transport Ship and Warcraft 1 Orc Lumber Mill

Human Transport and Submarine

Plains of Snow map for 8 players

New Maps

We released three new maps. Two for Warcraft 1 and one for Warcraft 2. Warcraft 2 received Plains of Snow which is a 8 player ground only map.
For Warcraft 1 we remade two original multipayer maps, we call them Swamp of Sorrows and Whispering Forest. They are all available to play on both Eu and Na Starcraft 2 Arcade.

Future

We are working on future improvements for our mod. Our current gameplay related focus is to ensure the units don't form a "death ball" as in Starcraft 2.
Currently we released a test map on Na and Eu servers of Starcraft 2 arcade called "Coa Wc2 Collision Test" where we made our units move more distinctly.
Please participate in our testing by playing this test map and telling your opinion. Units, Researches and Buildings are done instantly and you start with high amount of gold
to make the testing easier.
Also new arts will come in the future.
For single player we've got all 24 maps of the Warcraft 1 campaign therefore we need to finish only the attack waves, score screen and menu of it.
We also get the basic layout and gameplay of 14 out of the 28 Tides of Darkness campaign map.

Thank you.

Some additional things:

-enable build walls (very helpful for humans - i think it is not very easy to you guys to create it.. but.. we love walls);
-I didn't test again, but a I guess paladins are stop attacking when heal is zero mana (they simply stop attacking, in the middle of the battle - I have to quickly disable auto heal to keep the attack, if no they die);
-The new map is very good but has one problem: Player that is in the bottom can be attacked by blizzard (in the middle gold mine) from upper player. This wont happen with upper player;
-Please check if fireball is giving too much damage (it's hitting about 300, i guess it was about 100 damage to buildings);
-sugestion: bloodlust could be automatic when ally unit is attacking, not when it is under attack; The same could the assumed to "haste". Think about it (or remove auto speel of "slow", to keep it balanced);
- Suggestion: I guess you guys intentionally has created dark peninsula with 3 islands. Change for 4 islands, just to make it fair. No one can complain when lose the game.
-flame shield can be cast at enemies;
-Runes blink about every 15 seconds so that you can see them.
-Increase the size of orc's guard tower and cannon tower (or decrease size of watch tower). The orc's cannon tower is not attacking nearby units ( I dont remember it at original game);

I don't remember anything else except this. The game is perfect. Powers, ships, the game engine, congratulations! amazing! you´re doing a 35 years boy happy again. I used to play it 20 years ago with my old brother and friends and now i'm doing it again! I´ve been searching for some map like this for years.

Sorry for my english.

-added walls. You will need to hold shift to place multiple ones thou
-Paladins aren't stopping attack anymore as far as i know
-Moved the top gold mine closer to the rocks, so now you can target it with blizzard if you are positioning it good
-Cannon Towers can not attack enemies standing too close to them, just like Catapults
-Dark Peninsula is a remake of an original Warcraft 2 map so i don't want to change it. The one position without island has its third mine behind trees. Warcraft 2 maps were mostly asymmetrical.
- I changed slightly the size of guard tower

Other stuff you mentioned: i will look into later. Also i'm happy you are enjoying our mod. :) Pls join or in game group, Chronicles of Azeroth official.
