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 is back and the artists are still rolling in more and more models and skins for Wc3:WoW.

Not much eye-candy to show off of the terrain or new models just yet, but progress is being made still. This weekend I found out that Yixx is back to working on the Character Creation system. Yay! Forgotten_Warlord has also shown me one of his many attachment models for Wc3:WoW in the works:
It's not much, but just goes to show we're working on making armor pieces for your characters to wear!
The great Hive Workshop community has produced even more models for public use, but we might use them as well. These models include a Human mailbox, a couple attachment models, spell effects, and more doodads! So for the persistent support from them, I and the Wc3:WoW team are certainly appreciative.
I know everyone is super excited to get their hands on Wc3:WoW or at least see some screenshots or viedos, but progress is moving at a steady pace and we're trying to make sure we have very few bugs when we release anything. But of course, it isn't that huge of a barrier that will delay or prevent us from releasing any BETAs or whatever. As soon as Wc3:WoW is playable (meaning, when you can create a character and run around and load through the maps in Wc3:WoW in-game naturally) we plan on launching Closed BETAs and hopefully an Open BETA shortly after.
Stay tuned for next weekend's update; feel free to ask questions in the comments if you want any questions answered next weekend.
