WarCraft III: World of WarCraft (Wc3:WoW) is the most accurate WoW replica mod for WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne, featuring many elements as WoW does. It is a Single Player Campaign and the WarCraft III engine does not allow Campaigns to be played online or even on LAN. Wc3:WoW is currently being developed by a group of developers who hope to become pro some day called Condemned Entertainment. Previously, the team was given the simple 'Wc3:WoW Team' title, but after realizing it wasn't a professional team title to stick with, the team name was changed. Right now, the leader of Wc3:WoW is Craka_J, who had led the project through tedious development for over 4 years.
Yixx has been working really hard on getting the mod to function properly with the 1.24 patch in the World Editor and in-game. Finally, we're coming to the end of it.

Yixx informed me that he is nearly done with making Wc3:WoW fully compatible with WarCraft III patch version 1.24c. The deadline for it has been set to December 31. It is likely it will be done before that date though, so cross your fingers!
Once the campaign works in 1.24, I will immediately begin terraining Orgrimmar again and push for the finishing touches. I'd like to finally get it done, but I am still lacking a lot of crucial screenshots of:
So please, if you aren't already registered at the Hive Workshop and want to provide screenshots for me to work from to get things done quicker, please register at the Hive Workshop and visit our Hosted Forum here:
Other good news is that Bob27 (creator of Wc3:WoW's previous trailer) has happily agreed to begin working on another Wc3:WoW trailer featuring terrain and possibly gameplay once I've finished two Durotar areas, Orgrimmar, Thunder Bluff, and two Mulgore areas. I'd love to squeeze Ragefire Chasm in there this time, but we'll see...

Yixx has informed me that he has not been able to access his computer last week, but is now working hard on Wc3:WoW again and assured me that Wc3:WoW will be compatible with WarCraft III's 1.24 patch within days! As soon as Wc3:WoW works with 1.24, I'll get straight to terraining Orgrimmar and other zones in Wc3:WoW.
