WAH(Warcraft:Alliance and Horde) is a RTS game mod on Stacraft II Arcade. Like Warcraft III, player can gather resource, build base, train heroes and unit, destroy creeps and enemies on the map. By now there are 4 melee maps available on Arcade, player can play with other player or AI.
WAH is not a clone of Warcraft III, I referenced WOW and many other games in the design: You can see Gnome Mage blink into enemy crowd and cast arcane explosion; Tank, DPS and Healers supports each other just like in WOW; You can also see places such as Ashenvale, Crossroads and even Stormwind that once visited in WOW, but in this time, you will lead a whole army from the RTS perspective.
By now, WAH has 3 factions: Alliance, Horde and Burning Legion. All the design followed the official guide settings. I referenced many materials such as DK Ultimate Visual Guide, The Art of Blizzard, WOW Rule Playing Guide etc. Especially for the Burning Legion faction, which is removed from Warcraft III in 2001, I checked many information of Warcraft III design during 1998-2001.
WAH is not a single map but more likely a game embedded in the Arcade. It contains the core mod of over 300M, which supports various melee maps. Under this architecture new units, maps even campaigns can be easily expanded. By now WAH is under version 1.51, my next target is new faction -- Undead. Just as before, while referencing WOW and other games, I will use my own train of thought to design this game, players will see a different, amazing Scourge faction in the future.
It is not a professional game, and I am not a professional designer, but I will use my limited capability, to deliver a better game, bit by bit, day by day.

WAH 1.0 announce video:
How to play this game:
1. Register a Battle Net account and download the client of SC2, now you should buy Starcraft II but soon SC2 will be free, then you can just register a Battle Net account.
2. Choose American, Europe, Korean server and login, get into the 'Arcade' page from menu, in the search input on the top right of the screen, input 'WAH' and search.
3. Now all the WAH melee maps can be searched out, with teh name 'WAH - xxx'. get into any of the map like in Starcraft II or Warcraft III and play. This game is about 300M, so first downloading will take a while, but after downloading the main frame, you just need to download 5M content when you playing other maps of WAH.
The new undead unit is Twin Valkrie, they born and die together -- When Valkrie Twin are trained, they came out together as one unit and when one of them died, the other will die immediately.
Valkrie the Light will heal all undead units around when attacking, while Valkire the Dark, the twin sister, add Mana to all undead friendlies. Is it similar to some unit in Warcraft III?
