How does this compare to Renee's WC3 map?

I know that Renee's map contains all WC3 assets, all their races and plays just like WC3. It's also older, more refined and runs well. It was also endorsed by Blizzard.

I know that WAA map has two less races and is also supposed to be a WC3 remake.

So what's the difference apart from less races and cosmetics? For what reasons should I play this over Renee's map?

It has less races because its alpha, their full release will have the remaining two races. It also plays just like WC3 but looks much better with HD models.

Renee's mod wasn't really finished and was also quite buggy and I think you're mistaken when you say "runs well" you need a pretty updated system to play Renee's maps because there are A LOT of units on the map (because of the trees) causing the game to run badly.

Although I'd think WAA would have the same problems because it's an SC2 issue and not an issue with the actual map. SC2's engine really poorly handles 1000+ units on a map at a time without a fairly modern CPU (Like no older than 2012)

Dear friends. We are all mod developers.

Renee made a great job reworking most of the game mechanics and objects. Her architecture is definitely deserves respect. Her efforts are used by modders now, as far as I know.

We focus on remastering not only the technical part but also we try to put a lot of energy in visual part. Our main priority for now - players.

So it's for you to decide what you want :)

Nono, I'm definitely not putting Renee down. You're totally right. What they did was A LOT of work and effort. It's just not perfect, but there's nothing wrong with that. :D
