Warhaven's agency for Reforged

So with Reforged just around the corner and a bunch of old people returning I came to realize that we've heard very little from the admin team here (BotR and UoS affiliated folks alike) about their agency/plans for how to proceed further with this warhaven project

This is the peak opportunity we will have to recruit new members and re-establish a thriving wc3 custom game community, it would be a shame if we didnt capitalize on what's soon to come
a lot of us have grown older and ventured into their 20s since back when I joined in 2014, and got plenty more IRL responsibilities to maintain so we need new blood to help us keep active with hosting games and continued mapmaking feedback- hell even for socializing on TS/discord

I still love botr and the community we built around maps like lta, awlr, roberts rebellion and wip, the UoS merge into Warhaven was a great step in the right direction too

it's just been so awfully quiet lately, what are our plans? I assume this is still a mainly wc3 based site despite having branched off to other games recently

i agree ;D , i did return recently to the game playing both wc3 reforged melee maps with some friends and also playing at the same time classic wc3 (micro maps ;P).
i have yet to encounter a clan member when playing any micro map like Ltf or Awlr.
most of the time people in discord or Ts are playing other games.

btw im bananashoes djsailbeat was my original account but it got banned by unknown person botr so i made bananashoes but now that it got unbanned im gonna use djsailbeat again my original account

i dont agree with this thread at all i dont think reforge is gonna make warhaven bigger i think it will make it smaller
same with our discord channel

why you may ask easy reforge will not know or care about custom maps most of them will come back to w3 for melee maps

and it takes a long time to get used to play custom maps like cps bases like lta or ltf or spawn bases like war of the plague lands

it took 5 yearsa to used to those kind of maps just like anyone else


im trying to sound arrogant

but i think im the one keeping discord and warhaven alive the last 3 years i make 1 thread weekly minimum sometimes i make 3 1 day

im always doing my best to keep discord and warhaven alive

most of my thread get 1000 views

and every time i write somethimg in discord it becomes big discussion where everyone from clan to random w3 players jump in to argue with me


im the one deserving credit for reviving w3 forums and dicsord channels
not fucking reforge

reforge will help w3 melee and that it

i was always talking point teamspeak brigandshaven diplo gamerisle

hiveworkshop

blizzard org

and twcenter

unionostragfist now known as warhaven or warclave new clan forum for uos

btw brigandshaven was forum for botr clan beforge it got merged with unionostragfist with was uos forum

and become warclave

i have been keeping w3 scene alive last 7 years from 2013 when i started playing w3 because of lta and i wrote mostly diplo and gamerisle

to 2020

i agree ;D , i did return recently to the game playing both wc3 reforged melee maps with some friends and also playing at the same time classic wc3 (micro maps ;P).
i have yet to encounter a clan member when playing any micro map like Ltf or Awlr.

your stupid mrking i respect draupne for being part of w3 a long time

and making good custom maps like warbands of artania draupne maybe been w3 longer than me

but you mrking you go off and on like retard onyx or other retard

no respect for w3 comminity you never in discord maybe once teamspeak

To an extand I agree that Reforged will do nothing for forums based on custom maps - Thing is Warhaven isn't just about custom maps.

Even though I feel that things like reworking LTA or LTF in Reforged are dumb atm. Sicne at launch it will have zero assets (models, skins) and it won't have those for quite a while before it picks up amongst the community gain.
I think in terms of expansion it is a good idea since it will attract new ppl who come in for Melee maps and might see a couple custom map projects for Classic Warcraft and take interest in them

yeah we've not publicly posted anything as far as plans goes, but while there are internal talks on specifics and possible ways to spotlight the website, teamspeak and community as large. The primary part of the 'acquire people' plan is as it stands mostly a burst of intense activity at and around launch, and steady hosts following it. Daily hosts where people are advised to come on TS, weekly if not daily forum games of whatever maps pop up in the weeks to follow, and hopefully good luck when it comes to contacting new and old mapmakers regarding possibly hosting their map, and consequent discussions and activity here.

if you've got something you'd like to suggest, or anyone else does, please do suggest away.

I have one open map project still left, but not sure if I'll ever finish it.
Probably would trust this one solely to someone of whom I know that he or she will finish it (at this point I don't even care whether it's balanced or not), so yeah... hope it can get imported into Reforged, while if not, might be still a fun classic map.


current progress, majority of Stormwind + the area west of it needs to be done,
Karazhan interior is missing as well.

And before people ask:
Yes, it's the events of Wrath of the Lichking, your favorite WoW expansion.
much WoW much creative
won't include Shadowlands (or seek for an editor including Shadowlands)

But memes aside:
I really need someone with whom I can trust this baby where I can be certain that it's getting released.
Most of the mapping job is done, mainly triggers and events await. I could do a list of things I've planned and never executed, but well... if anyone is interested, I'm looking forward a DM.


So yeah, that's my plans for Reforged.

I wouldn't mind if FoD got a reforged update. That was a truly balanced map, wouldn't you say so? @Wrath_icefire :p

Joking aside. If I ever get time to return to WC3, I'll might return for a couple of games. Though, just like you say Draupne, most of us have gotten older. When I joined BotR in the summer of 2014 I was 16 and was flopping my schooling with flying colors. Nowadays I'm about to take my second real exam (Passed the first one with flying colors) in a subject I absolutely love and I have matured a lot (Ask @Harald in the few Warhammer matches we have had. I'm not the same kid who wrote bad fanfiction of him and Azothan back in the day xD).

I would personally love for some sort of revival of this community. Even if minimal, I think reforged will bring BotR back in atleast some shape or form. We just need to act on it before that chance is gone.

I have an ongoing map project, and I don't know if it can be completed this year. It has been already going on half a year ago, so there is little chance that I will let it integrate with the Reforged(Unless Blizzard has enough ability to make the classic version of the map run on the Reforged and there won't be a big problem, but at present, the response is not good)
But it has to be said that this is indeed an opportunity to revive the community

Custom models won't work, but porting it to Reforged is really easy. Azeroth Wars is already 30% done being ported to Reforged.

Yes, AWLR seems to fit the Reforged well,The main reason is that I have been using an editor with extra function,Some of the features above are not available in the Reforged editor. But when it is finished, I would like to let it also run perfectly on the Reforged at the same time.:D

Yea, it's very simple... if your map isn't gigantic.

What are the reforged recommended system requirements anyway? I imagine they would be on par with sc2 no?
