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.
Finally got a temporary coder who is very much indeed experienced with vJASS and is perfect for helping Wc3:WoW get back on it's feet. This article will go over what's to come soon if things go as planned for once.

Hello everybody and thank you for your input on podcasts. Though not as many as I had hoped wanted the podcasts, only one or two people said they didn't want me to do podcasts. I know I've been slow with presenting the first Wc3:WoW podcast to you guys but I intend to have something to show off and comment on when I do create the podcast. You'll see what I mean when I upload it and it will likely make everyone a bit happier or at least more satisfied.
Very early in the morning I contacted PurgeandFire111 who is my other RPG's (Ardent Heroes ORPG) lead coder and asked him for a favor: to help get Wc3:WoW back on its feet by implementing a few basic systems to make it testable. Not necessarily 'playable' since there's not much playing involved in these early alpha beta tests but there will be a few key things to test such as how the camera works in-game, memory leaks, terrain pathing, and so on. I probably won't be able to get him to do more than a few basic things since it is summer and I am sure he'd rather spend more time enjoying his rather than working on tedious systems. :P
But who knows!
Right now I've setup only a select few systems as emergency priority systems. Just a small handful of things that are required in order to test the mod.
Sorry to those of you who hate to just hear things are progressing and not see it. As soon as things are working, I plan on showing it off a bit. So stay tuned while we fill up the goodies basket and thanks for the feedback!
