Host map Arrange game
Azeroth Wars: Legacy Reborn

Notice: I am no longer working on the map and have thus decided to release it unprotected.

Azeroth Wars: Legacy Reborn is a Risk/Strategy game based around Warcraft lore, with many notable factions and heroes present.

The game is very dynamic, every game will be unique in some way. There are many options to make an individual game unique, whether expanding from a certain base, or choosing a different mastery.

Gold in LR (as the map is known) is obtained by owning control points. Control points are present for regions - control the Hinterlands, or conquer C'thun and own Ahn'Qiraj. Lumber is obtained as normal.

Player 1: The Scourge. You control Icecrown and Scholomance, commanding vast legions of Undead.
Player 2: The Burning Legion. You control the Demon Lords Kil'Jaeden and Archimonde, as well as the Dreadlords Mal'ganis and Tichondrius. You control a small portion of Undead, but if you are able to succeed in summoning the Burning Legion to Azeroth, you can unleash a vast swath of demonic units upon your enemies.
Player 3: The Fel Horde. Control the Fel Orcs of Outland, along with the Dark Horde of Blackrock Mountain. Unleash your Horde into Azeroth by conquering Ironforge and Stormwind.
Player 4: Lordaeron. Lead Arthas, Uther, and the Silver Hand into victory against the Undead Scourge with your allies.
Player 5: The Dwarves. Stop the advancement of the Fel Horde with King Magni Bronzebeard and control the Northrend Expedition with Muradin.
Player 6: Dalaran. Wield the magical power of Dalaran's mages and control a vast array of spellcasters under the direction of Antonidas and Jaina.
Player 7: The High Elves. Aid your allies in the fight against the forces of evil with your ranged expertise with your powerful heroes, Anasterian and Sylvanas. You can become the Blood Elves under Kael, adding the power of the arcane to your army, and gaining the allegiance of Lady Vashj.
Player 8: The Horde. Lead by Thrall, you can storm Durnholde to free your brothers and journey to Kalimdor, to establish Orgrimmar! You also control Grom'gol Stronghold,
Player 9: The Trolls and Tauren. You begin with many scattered small bases, but you are able to forge a massive empire using your wide variety of units and abilities - conquering all under the direction of Vol'Jin, Cairne, and Zul'jin.
Player 10: The Sentinels. You control the ranged forces of the Night Elves. Command the forces of the Warden's Guild under the leadership of Naisha and Maiev with the Sentinels under Tyrande to protect the World Tree and safeguard the world from evil.
Player 11: The forces of Stormwind and Stromguarde. Lead Varian Wrynn, and his lieutenant, Reginald Windsor, into victory against the Orc hordes of Outland and Blackrock. You also control Thoras Trollbane to the north in Stromguarde.
Player 12: The Druids. You control the druidic portion of Night Elven society. Defeat your foes with the powerful demigod Cenarius, while safeguarding the World Tree from harm. You also control the Cenarion Circle in Silithus.

Lorewise the game is mostly set in Reign of Chaos, with progression into TFT lore possible as far as player actions, events, or roleplaying goes. No Cataclysm lore is to be implemented currently.

The game is a sandbox game in nature, with one being able to unally or ally anyone as they wish.

He will be the same except he will gain more slightly more stats per level (and so will get more stats upon this event).
Reduced Arathor Outrider attack speed
Gave Kargath his old model back

Outriders will now be a red tinted Bandit Lord model
Stormwind champions will now use the Knight model
Made Draenei Demolishers like normal siege, with their AoE reduced and a cap of 6.

Reduced the stun duration on Heroes of Firebolt
Thoras Trollbane will start out level 2 rather than 3

Fixed Red and Blue's Mastery building going hostile when they go Forsaken. Blue will be able to research Red's Masterys once he has gone Forsaken. This means Blue will also be able to make Death Knights/Crypt Guards now.
The Tomb of Sargeras will open after 10 minutes and 20 seconds game time. It will display a message to Brown informing him of this. Regular players can just use the Plague text appearing as a way to know the Tomb is open.
Hopefully fixed the zombie conversions, where they remain in control of the player who's unit was converted
Arthas now only needs to approach the Lich King (on the floating ice or landing on the base) when he's level 15 and in Death Knight form to become the Lich King, instead of killing him. The Obelisks being dead are not required.

Raised Paladin's Mana to 425 from 300
When Stratholme dies to anyone now, if Arthas is dead he will become a Death Knight as normal, if alive Red will gain vision of him and Arthas will go Undead once he dies (unless he is level 12 or higher, a weak symbol for him being "King" now due to game progression, or just him being powerful enough to not need Frostmourne) All this will happen only if the Lich King is alive.
Made the range on Footman (Ranged), DG's spearthrower unit, 450 from 350.
Gave Gahz'rilla a new spell to replace Bile Attack which never worked for reasons I'm unable to discern
Fixed many abilities where you could double spend points in them (ex a level 4 hero could have 3 points in one ability or a level 2 hero 2 points in one)

Red will now use this for his event to revive Kel'Thuzad (he must be dead when it's captured, so no more item either). If Green recaptures it he can reupgrade it to be normal again (only Green). If Red takes it while Kel is alive, he can kill him then retake the Sunwell and it will work.
Silvermoon Ballistas are now Elven Ballistas and trained at the Barracks with a limit of 6.

Azeroth Wars LR 1.67b (Map)

  1. 11:03, 25th Jun 2009, by Rui(#5):
    A map that would accomplish a lot if only its authors ever listened to the right people. Even pros and cons, from which we emphasize the excellent terrain and the horrible balance. Reviewed, 3/5 (Acceptable).

    Forgive my spam of somewhat unimportant details, but I like all changes to be recorded (and even then they aren't all unfortunately).
    1.54a Changelog

    1.54 BETA Changelog

    Most fundamental changes of 1.54 are the income and food system. All units except workers and summons will cost 1 food. Income has been rewritten to be triggered but for all appearances is the same as before, and you can view your income by typing -income. There is also a board to keep track of how many control points a player owns and how many allies they have.

    So this is still in development?
    I don't know you, EagleMan. Hopefully you will bring to "Azeroth Wars: Legacy Reborn" some conscience.

    In the future, hide your changelogs in
    tags, remove the "=1.51b Changelog" from it (italic is painful to read) and organize them in FIXES, FEATURES, and so on, or however you want, but just don't leave them in this mess.

    I have removed v1.45 from the database. Be sure to keep this updated.

    EDIT: My first recommendation is that you put the map to use the most recent melee patch in Map Options, which I'm sure you didn't, like the other authors.

    I'll run my tests on this one, see what has changed, and return with a review.

    Unfortunately I’m unable to make a very good review because I died very early in the game, but I will still make some general observations about the map.

    Firstly, it seems like the burning legion is heavily dependent on its allies, making it not much fun to play, if your allies are not so good. In my opinion, the burning legion should be as strong as the other players are when it is summoned.
    That is, if the players have gotten strong before the legion is summoned make the legion stronger, and if it’s early game make them weaker. Otherwise, they can mass a huge army, summon the burning legion, and kill poor level 1 Archimode as soon as he steps out of the portal (or go and kill him).

    The demon heroes seemed to lack customization, having mostly the same skills they normally have, it would be nice to have a few custom triggered spells/items for heroes like Archimode, Tichondrias, etc.

    Also was a bit hard to learn, you give a player one huge wall of text to read fast and then no hints later on in the game. My undead ally didn't know how to start his plague, eventually someone told him how too, but by then it wasn't much good. A hint and/or adding it as an ability to some unit (maybe the frozen throne) would help this.

    It would also be nice to have a leader-board showing player stats (income etc.), and to be able to observe after you've lost.

    It seems like it would be a great game if it were on a smaller scale, like one area of the Warcraft world, not the whole thing. It would it faster paced and less laggy. I don't know if it was just the game I played, but it was a bit slow paced and drawn out; lasting over an hour. I prefer games that last 30-45 minutes.

    As I said, I didn't get much of a chance to play, so I can't comment of the other aspects of the game, they seemed alight to me, sorry I can't be of more help.

    Overall, I would give this map 3/5 or 4/5. If you enjoy this type of map you should definitely give this map a try.

    Rui's review for EagleMan's "Azeroth Wars: Legacy Reborn" (v1.51b)

    "Azeroth Wars Strategy" (AWS) is a risk/strategy mixed with Offense type of game which has passed through the hands of multiple authors. The first author was the Russian Augur, who later disappeared, whose work Darkganon_RPer later de-protected. When he abandoned the project, Railen and Avrion took the project and gave it a new name: "Azeroth Wars: Legacy Reborn" (AW:LR). The map is now being modified by EagleMan.

    In this map, you play as one of the twelve available races. From the horrific Scourge and the honorable Humans of Lordaeron, to the reclusive Night Elves and the savage Orcs.

    Which quickly takes me to my first point: the map has no information on its description regarding this.

    Continuing. Every race starts with a number of units, and in the place where in Warcraft lore they stand. Your food used is the income you'll get every minute (the timer is displayed at the upper right corner of the screen), and your maximum food is... the real food, so to speak. It decreases by 1 every time you train a unit, so you have to construct resource production buildings in order to maintain it. If your maximum food is 1, you get no income.

    Income comes from various control points, represented by a Circle of Power. Each of them give a set amount of gold, depending on their importance.

    Lumber is gathered as in normal melee games, with only an extra small detail: you have seeds of regrowth which can restore trees in an area around the user.

    Like Evan1993 mentioned above me, this is one of the games where you don't know where to turn to when you first play it. The problem is that you don't get the time to learn. In AW:LR, the game is centered around quick, strategic actions, and a delay can result on your defeat. If you are a newbie, playing as harder factions such as the Scourge, Lordaeron, or Draenor, and you are unfortunate enough to have an experienced opponent, your downfall is (nearly) inevitable.

    Let's start... from the start, though. My game-mate has also pointed out to the fact that the text is indeed a little long and fades quickly. When somebody lags, it's totally impossible to read them, and the text fades no matter.

    The tips are useful nonetheless, but you should not advise alliances with this or the other race. If Naga and Satyrs ally, Night Elves are in trouble. I've played them and I know.

    The techtrees are not very organized, and there are a lot of useless units in every race. Why do Human techtrees have Footmen (Infantry), if they can train Seargents -- a more powerful unit -- for just 4 extra gold? I was about to say Knights, but since they do not possess Defend... either way, the techtrees require re-organization.

    The terrain is where you get most impressed. Avrion surprised people with a landscape varied in elevation and ground tiles, which fit the "miniature" view of Azeroth he's trying to portray. Excellent work!

    I would not change the abilities for the ordinary Warcraft III heroes, but I'd certainly give a few custom ones to the ones that didn't appear.

    Another negative grade goes for the items sold on shops. How come you sell Claws of Attack +15 for 75 gold? On heroes such as Blademasters, this is dangerous, save on Sylvanas who possess Wind Walk, Trueshot Aura, and Bash -- it is DEADLY!

    The lag and large loading time are typical in AW:LR. I've stopped bothering telling the authors to fix it.

    My rating is a 3/5 (Useful). This is a fun map to play with a powerful computer and friends (leavers totally ruin it).

    EDIT: The review continues here.

    bounty hunter2's Review on Azeroth Wars LR 1.51b

    Azeroth Wars Legacy is a Strategy/Risk/RP type of map made by Avrion, EagleMan and Railen.

    The map is well done. The terrain, is very well done, no Blizzards cliffs were present, usage of the height tool was supreme. The dodoads used were just enough, not overused to cause to much lag, and yet not underused. I can only suggest that you place some more dodoad in Kalimdor, in some of the very desolate territories.

    The object editor work was fine, working hotkeys and decent tooltips. The factions were done nicely, however there are some imbalances. The satyrs for instance don't stand any chance against the Night Elves. Some custom spells would be nice, for sure.

    There were some also minor polishing issues. The harpies were quite close to my borders, I was Night Elf, and they immidiately attacked my unites who passed nearby. You should place them a bit farther.

    I also didn't like the long time you had to wait for a ship to re-stock, you should lower it for about 15 - 20 seconds in my opinion.

    You should also optimize the map, if you didn't allready, since it causes a lot of lag, and the loading time is immense. Especially on a bit older machines, such as my own.

    And please do work on your description of the map at the Hive Workshop, add more info, put some images (In hidden tags.), use tags.

    Overall, a fun to play map, needing balancing and packaging fixes. Well done.

    4/5 (Recommended) rating.

    Thank you for the reviews, while it is a cop out, I have not worked on the map forever and I would've designed it differently if I was there during its initial phases. I'm using Rui's first two paragraphs as the description (for now), I was first going to copy over the text from the 1.45 upload but I was unsure if this would anger you or not, but it's deleted now so what can you do.

    Blue is something me and the authors have been discussing about how to update but keep the game balanced, but nothing concrete has been done yet in this manner. I've also been working on Quests for players but I've stopped working on this out of distractions elsewhere on the map, but it will be done eventually.

    Also I am able to admit that I am a newb mapmaker, only having a good work ethic and some ideas, so how would I optimize it? I thought map protection did this (or is this simply compressing it some?), which Railen or Avrion does. And thanks for the reviews really, it's honestly impossible for even us 3 to catch all discrepancies in the map, since regular players will already have accepted the map 'as is' but newbs who dislike the map don't care enough to tell you their impressions either, so that leaves us with gaps of information regarding such things as Teal's heroes.

    And finally, yes the map still is in development with no end to updates planned.

    I don't think Vexorian's Map Optimizer (for map size reduction & protection) and the Widgetizer (loading time reduction) can both be used without screwing up the map, but I may be wrong. Ask Avrion or Railen about this.

    To me, authors don't notice balance issues because they don't want to.
    I have, countless times, advised the various developers of this map against things such as the items you can purchase at Ironforge. I have played melee games for a long time, and (forgive me for the immodesty) I believe I have a better knowledge of what's balanced and what's not. Despite how much they're warned, the creators refuse to listen, so I have simply stopped trying. That's why I'm hoping you'll bring some ears to the team. I can't stand watching this game get buried with each version.

    I forgot to mention balance in detail, by the way. I was in a hurry. The first paragraph isn't very well built either, I don't think you should have copied it.
    Additionally, in the description, write who is who. Red = Scourge, Blue = Legion, etc. I'll do it for you if you want.

    I have noticed that once the burning legion gets to azeroth, and isnt attacked right off the spot(like to kill archimonde) Really they win, they are just too powerful, I've been a lot of factions and used huge army and it did little, it took 3 people(we were allied) to hit at all sides to beef that army down, and they still had warlocks and eventually still won, I think they should seriously be nerfed some.

    I really like this map, the gameplay may need some tweaking here and there but the terrain is fantastic!. 4.5/5

    Well, although I didn't test this on b-net yet.I don't believe it was intended for Archimonde and Kil'jaeden's summonings to not be usable on their own trained units ^^.

    EDIT:Oh, nevermind.Strangely it didn't work at first.But now, everything is in order.

    Thank you for the information. Nice to see you posting around, too.

    Anyway, I had a rant to do about balance, and I'm doing it now.

    One of the main balance issues was already mentioned, which will swiftly take me to my point: it was the Burning Legion issue.
    The Legion possesses the demonic creeps: Eredars, Voidwalkers, Succubi, Infernal Contraptions... well, the thing with creeps, not only demonic, but all of them, is that they suffer greatly from the upgrades of units. In the Legion's case, if they're summoned too early, they're too destructive to be contained; if they are summoned later, they are worthless, save for the stronger creeps who can still provoke some damages on units not under the effect of auras.
    This is a shortcut to the point: there are eight levels of damage and armor upgrades, and they're imbalanced. If you recall, I said in my review post that leavers ruined the game... and they definitely do. Players such as Teal (Draenor) or Dark Green (Stormwind) have lot of land to step on, and if one of them leaves, the other can quickly claim all of the opponent's lands. Unnecessary is to say that with 300 gold a minute you can purchase the upgrades in no time, and with a race possessing level eight damage/armor upgrades, there will most unlikely be any turn of tides.
    Summarizing, the game has come to an end.

    And this is basically the essence of "Azeroth Wars: Legacy Reborn" on terms of balance: it hangs by a frail string.

    That is my opinion.

    I agree with this...

    The burning legion is either way to powerful to stop, or too weak to matter.

    And if Stormwind or Draenei Player leaves. the other takes over lands and easily become the top power the whole game or most...

    Also in a lot of games, I have seen yellow destroy stormwinds castle within the first 30 seconds, then DG is pretty much finished, and worthless, and Teal conquers... You should really fix this by making it so your allies can't attack your builders... This way it stops betraying, and I have seen this a LOT. Its even happend to me 3-4 times and I just gave up being DG.

    The point here is that it's not very fun to see balanced fights (Scourge vs. Alliance) getting ruined. Last game, I was fighting the Scourge when, suddenly, dark green arrived with eight-leveled damage and armor upgrades, while I (Lordaeron) only had level four upgrades.
    A game that was being fun came to an end because Teal (Draenor) was a newbie and left early game. Sure, I could ally with Night Elves and rebuild, but the majority of the players don't appreciate seeing their lands being thrown to the ground.
    I still blame the eight-level upgrades. After all, who likes watching buildings being destroyed by a few hits?

    punwisp, you know you can always unally players, do you not? I can't think of a reason for Yellow to destroy his ally; the Dwarfs are weak and cannot handle Teal 1v1.

    I have a few things to say about what you guys/gals posted about balance issues.
    Rui, i respect your position and i understand that you are a very experienced player, but you have said some things in here that are wrong. I'm playing azeroth wars for quite some time now (on eurobattle.net though), and theres a whole clan of gamers there that has been playing it with me for about a year now (we played thousands of games including DAoW, Lordaeron Tactics, Plaguelands Strife, etc. - all similiar to azeroth wars) so i could say i have at least some experience with the game, so lets get down to business, shall we?

    First - I played dwarves very few times but i can say that with dwarves - Teal is pretty much soloable, only thing required is common sense and perhaps only 2-3 games that you played already (just to know you are familiar with the game). There is no special strategy specified here because you need to ADJUST to his tactics, wich is mostly rush (teal because of his strong starting units wich are very massable will mostly use rush, unless he is an experienced player wich will do something else only for the "suprise" factor that might give him some advantage) if rush is the case, solution is very simple, you need only to block him off with some melee or w/e that has some nice armor and hp and then use chokepoints and your (powerful) ranged units to eradicate his army, then you need to make a swift counterattack and stop him from creeping (assuming he has taken stormwind he will have a lot of income spent on creeping) from then on you just need to push him back.

    Of course, we're not here to discuss strategies, but i put it here just to prove to you that teal isnt as much as powerful as you say, of course it also depends on your luck because you might not to be so effective against a pro player (hereby noted that example given above is only worth if players are of same skill since we're discussing balance).

    Then there's the issue of the burning legion. You all say it can be overpowered in the beginning and underpowered in the end-game. Very unlikely. If the Legion is summoned in the early game, chances are it will destroy most of northern EK due to strong allies. Even if it is summoned by the enemy that already overwhelmed the scourge and/or draenor, the enemy is probably weary and not ready to fight the accumulated forces in outland! The case is different if Red is a leaver and that he was easily destroyed. Lordaeron can't destroy Scholomance before the 15 minutes of the game, and even if he takes the book and summons earlier, he CANNOT fight on two fronts successfully if the players are of same experience. If you defeated BL just because he was a noob, that isnt a balance issue.

    Then on the other hand we have a much bigger balance issue concerning purple. Since most of you didn't play the game and tried truly ALL of the options, you probably didn't notice how overpowered arthas (as a lich king NOT as a death knight or paladin) is. Here we have a 100% bash wich stuns you for 2 or 3 secs where the time between attacks is 1.5 or 2.5 secs (means he can kill any other powerful unit without the unit have any power or any chance to retaliate at all), he has a slow splash damage (damage splash wich also applies a freeze very much alike to the frost wyrm's) wich has more radius than a blizzard spell on rank 4, 3k hp with a regeneration wich makes him invulnerable to all melee hits (regen so high that you cant use any amount of melee units to kill him since the units next to him are blocking the units behind them), a spell immunity wich applies not only to ALL spells (and here i really mean ALL spells) but to dalaran's magic attack as well AND to their anti-undead aura, and has a frost nova spell wich can kill most fodder with one (or two, if you're lucky) shots AND of course a spell wich ressurects all the units near him (almost all the units in his sight range) to make them fight for him. Its only weakness (and the only way i killed him ONCE) is the fact that he needs boats to travel over bodies of water.

    Apart from that, one last thing to be said about balance. Balance in this map is not calculated as one nation against another (1v1) since you cant compare the orcish horde to the burning legion or draenor horde. Balance is achieved overall on TEAMS (e.g: Dalaran cannot match the draenor horde or scourge or burning legion but in coordination with lordaeron and quel'thalas it can easily overcome any other team or enemy). Of course, Night elves and naga are exeptions to the rule but the balance here is achieved so that night elves dont have any larger early games threat (I pity the fool trying to increase satyr power when NEs have to fight naga too) and that the naga are in the sea and is hard to get as well as almost nobody even launches counter-attacks against them.

    And basically... pff... that's it pretty much, post some comments (preferably with GOOD explanations) where is my logic wrong!

    This game has serious technical, lore and ballence flaws.

    I would advise the creation of some sort of penalty system for allies and unallies. Eg if DG / yellow ally purple, orange and green, both sides should lose some resources / troops as those troops normally would be used to fight eachother so as to not make teal doomed. Equally well, if teal allies dark green the same should occur, as otherwise it would be totally unballenced. I would also like to see a dominance penalty system, whereby if purple and allies do not attack yellow / darkgreen, darkgreen gets some weakness as otherwise the situation can occur where darkgreen and yellow just focus on teal as the other players leave them alone so teal is doomed. What I am sujesting is some sort of system whereby powerful playerss which are meant to hold off against multiple fronts get a penalty if they are only having to hold one front which could be called a dynamic ballence system to make it harder for a player to really gain an advantage.

    Heroes need major ballencing, as currently some normal units are a lot stronger than heros. Major heros in the campaign only have like 2-5 times the HP of a normal unit, which is ok for something like a campaign but is totally weak when the average brawl is between 40+ units with near no colission so you can easilly have them all focus fire. Thus eithor add collision to armies again, majorly buff all heroes so they can not be focus killed in 2 secs or reduce the average army size. I would advise reducing the average army size, as WC3 is not supreme commanders so you should not get 100s of units so easilly. Basically heroes should be a major part of the game, currently they are only factored into combat if they have mega ammounts of items which are hard to aquire or are a near impossiably high level. In short, up the role of heroes in combat, so having one can literally be battle turning and so they can not be killed so easilly (maybe give hero armor huge resistance to normal attacks so they do not die like normal units).

    The frozen throne should be more based on lore. There should be 4 oblisks which all need to be converted so the throne can be hit, and converting takes 1 minute each per hero, so you can not just march in and unrealisticly focus on it. The eye of sargaris should curropt the holding hero causing them to ally the demons, afterall it was a highly evil artifact owned by the chief destroyer sargaris (who was above archimonde and Kiljaden in rank) and illidan only used it because he was helping Kiljaden. Basically it should only be worth picking up if you want to ally the demons, also for the human races it could cause their aquiring hero to go rouge if you are concerned about ballence. The allience mode it should make should result in the holder dieing if they unally. These generally would make it more lore worthy.

    A whole host of other ballence changes need to be done but I am sure you know that.

    So as for my rating? I give it a 4/5 if you are playing with friends, as you can certainly have an enjoyable time making alliences, armies and destroying stuff. However if you are playing alone with no one you know, then I give it a 2-3/5 (more towards 2/5) as the lack of ballence removes nearly every ounce of enjoyment as you end up highly fustrated and do not have a good time. For singleplayer I am not ratting it as it is not meant to be played single player. Thus I conclude advising the playing of it if you are with friends and want to mess around a bit with other players yet not with each other however I do not advise you play it with only total strangers as you will probably end up wasting a lot of time and not enjoying it one bit.

    Dr. Super Good, I like your idea about the obelisks, but you must understand the fact that in order to create space for the obelisks all around icecrown, you'd need to remake the whole continent, make it bigger, not to mention the fact that you then need to "move" the other continents further away too, and besides, heroes are more than powerful in brawls and especially useful in larger fights due to their great crowd control abilities (of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule, but nothing much).
