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.

Some of it is good. Some of it is bad. Either way, it's news and is probably worth reading, as always!

Very sorry for the late news post guys. I posted a news article slightly over a week ago on Mod DB and it mysteriously vanished completely while waiting for official authorization. Not sure why. Anyway, here it is! Yay! And this week I've got good and bad news to report.

Bad news is always fun to get out of the way first, so here it goes. Progress on the coding side is much, much slower than expected. Yixx hasn't finished the character creation system yet still which is mainly due to his new PC suffering from an expensive hardware damage issue. Because he cannot afford fixing the computer at this time, his work will remain slowed for a couple reasons.

  • Losing interest in WarCraft III modding.
  • His PC is very slow, therefore results come slower.
  • The lack of interest in modding and lack of speed of his PC is contributing to his lack of will to even get on the computer at all, making 'hanging out' a much better option for him.
  • Other life-related issues.

More bad news is that Yixx will be leaving the team as soon as his character creation system is complete, along with leaving WarCraft III modding altogether! Another great loss for this project... and to finish off today's bad news report, I haven't been terraining Wc3:WoW at all lately and have been focusing on another project instead to keep me interested in WarCraft III modding.

Now it's time for good news! I have a three day weekend now and plan on working on terrain for both Wc3:WoW and my other project. I know you guys would probably prefer I focus completely on Wc3:WoW, but as much as I'd like to, the reality of the fact is that I will get bored after a few hours or a day and will want to work on something else. Regardless, it's promised progress. That's better than no progress at all!

Another plus side to this week's report is that PurgeandFire111, dedicated coder of my other RPG project for WarCraft III "Ardent Heroes," may implement a keyboard movement and camera adjustment system to the project after the Character Creation system is done, that way the mod is somewhat playable and closed playtesting may begin.

With the loss of Yixx coming up, I'm looking for another dedicated coder to replace Yixx. PurgeandFire cannot do it because he has very little interest in Wc3:WoW and wishes to remain on the current project he is assigned to. I am doing yet another search for JASS coders only for the project and would greatly appreciate anyone seriously interested in taking up the opportunity now.

Thanks and hope to report some more good news this weekend!

We're working on it! Hopefully there will be some sort of BETA release (not full) this summer! But one can only hope.
