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.
It has been a few weeks since our last update and here I'd like to explain why. Our need for another vJASS Expert (AKA coder) and lack of terrain progress is a brief explanation.

We're back again with yet another update for you guys. It has been three weeks and embarrassingly we do not have any goodies for you guys to look at. In fact, very little has progressed since our last update. Yixx has been dealing with his life and his computer is very slow now due to damaged hardware and I haven't been able to work on the terrain accurately due to my World of Warcraft subscription finally expiring.
I am likely to use WoW Map Viewer to continue my work, but if that fails, I am doing an art commission for D.E.A. and should get enough money to get a new headset and maybe a WoW subscription, since I really don't like the idea of Private Servers.
Forgotten_Warlord is very eager to create a bunch more attachment models for Wc3:WoW though. So that's about the only real progress being made. Yixx says he' still trying to get stuff done, but he hardly has time to do it and the issues with his computer only make it even harder. Because of this, I cannot rely so heavily on a single coder under these circumstances. Therefore, I am starting to ask around for new coders and posting on the forums and website about it. If you're good at creating clean triggers with vJASS (NOT GUI TRIGGERS!) then I may be interested in having you aboard! Proof of your abilities is required.
Other than that, it's mainly just a bunch of disappointing news. The Hive Workshop seems to be producing more and more useful content for Wc3:WoW, so that's good. They're a major help to be honest! Thanks a lot to all the contributors and supporters still!
The Hive Community has provided me with a working version of WoW Map Viewer, so expect some terrain progress some time this weekend or next weekend.
