The Hive is a WarCraft 3 and StarCraft 2 modding community. There is a spot reserved just for you whether you need help, want to learn or contribute with quality resources, knowledge or help.
The site also contains a vast resource section including most of the resources that anyone will ever need for a modding project. You will find campaigns, icons, maps, models, skins, spells, scripts and tools. Extensive tutorials contain realms of information on how to create, improve and perfect your resources and maps. The Hive's forum allows everyone to talk about playing the game, modding it, making resources and many other subjects.
Over at Battle.net Blizzard has announced the launch of a new StarCraft 2 mapping contest.
Now that the Arcade is free, we think this is a great time to encourage the creation of awesome games. We’re sending out the call: wow us with the most amazing Arcade games ever made using the StarCraft II Map Editor and Art Tools, and we’ll award over fifteen thousand dollars and other amazing perks to the winning entries. If you’ve always wanted to create your own game, this contest is for you!
This means that anyone can participate in this contest, no matter if you own the game or not.
If you decide to participate, it would be awesome to follow your project in the StarCraft Mapping Forum.
I hope that one of you wins this contest. Good luck!
The Hive administration team together with community member, Azothan, has introduced a new feature here at Hive.
Azothan, is a commentator & map reviewer, known for his netcasts of Warcraft 3 on his YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAzothan.
To make a long story short, he has agreed to cast maps found here at Hive. We are very excited about this, as this will put some spotlight on some of the awesome maps our users have made through the years.
This includes but is not limited to hosted projects upon completion and various map contests in the past and in the future.
As we speak, Azothan is currently casting a playthrough of Rise Of The Blood Elves by Tomoraider. Check it out here:

As some of you may have noticed, a new forum has surfaced on Hive's forum index.
More specifically, we've added a new Hearthstone forum in the Gamer's Hub. Go check it out, and lets see some awesome deck creation ideas etc.
Notice that our new forum has no subforums. However, this will change with the arrival of Hive 2, which will also feature a unique Hearthstone-theme style.

Forsaken Bastion's Fall (FBF) is a map that combines Tower Defense gameplay with an AoS-like Hero PvP Battle. Our project started in 2008, when it was known as Defense of the Undead (DotU). As time went on, ideas, criticizing, and suggestions reshaped DotU into a whole new map which was then completely remade from scratch to become what it is now.
FBF is set in a completely new universe with an extensive lore that keeps growing as time goes by. It is set in a key point of the World's history: At the very end of a long war that present many great changes at social, political and religious levels. The players can choose from 2 teams and 5 different factions. The Forsaken, an ancient cult of necromancers and it's undead army, have to defend their last fortress from The Alliance (The Infidel), a coalition of human nations using their last resources to take down the Forsaken.
There is a total of 5 factions, 27 heroes, 104 items (8 base items and 24 items unique to each faction), 27 minions with varied statistics and skills, and 11 towers for the Forsaken to use. Alongside a great map terrain and an extensive lore.
