    VERSION 2.3.0

    After over 2 months of hard work, Sunken City brings one of its biggest updates ever! This version contains an array of features, over some of which I will briefly touch upon in this post.

      Your Backpack will now have the Inspect ability which allows your hero to indicated areas and objects in the search for clues or lore! Hundreds of lines of text containing story and secrets await! The addition of this feature has caused major changes to existing areas, the additions of new ones, including new puzzles and secrets.

      A few glimpses at the new Inspect System

      Improvements to items, new additions, replacements and more await you in the shop. This includes the rework of Elixirs and changes to Legendary items and the way they are acquired.

      Adjustments for the Death Knight, New model for the Berserker, Reworks for the Druid, Mage, Rogue and Windmaster and many more changes and bugfixes await!

      Changes to Glyphs, Altars of Atal'ai, Difficulty Adjustments... The new version holds many other surprises for you. I hope you can all experience everything that I have worked on in the past months and I sincerely hope you will enjoy it!

      With the release of 2.3.0, I'd like to announce to Hiveworkshop that we have just recently created our own Discord server where we can all gather parties and play together. Regardless if you can use BattleNet or not, we will help you setup yourself for games with us! Join us now by clicking the image below!

    Recently I took a stroll down our Terrain Avenue and was amazed by the beautiful landscapes all around me.
    So I thought to myself, I wish everyone would see this. And at the same time, I know some people who might not even realize what is possible to do with the World Editor.
    That is why I made this video featuring some of the most amazing custom-made terrains by members of the Hive Workshop!

    And to properly show it to you we've created a YouTube Channel for the Hive Workshop in celebration of our community!

    It really is stunning what these guys were able to do with the World Editor!

    We recommend you watch it in Fullscreen HD. Watch the video above and subscribe to our channel for new videos!


    The Community Program is the official title of a new effort initiated by the Hive administration team.
    The primary focus of this program is to promote Hive across multiple online communities and social media, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
    For this purpose we are now looking for someone to help manage our new YouTube channel.

    Do you have experience with video editing? And are you interested in managing our YouTube channel? Contact Archian for more information.

    It's time for Blizzcon, the official event for everything Blizzard games! It's where upcoming releases are announced, competitive tournament matches are being fought, interviews are popping, art is being showcased, and many things are being broadcasted & streamed.​

    The opening week started on October 26th. The following days featured major Blizzard eSports competitions on Hearthstone, Overwatch, WoW, and Starcraft 2. The opening ceremony, however, is on Friday, November 4, 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM GMT. Coverage will continue for hours on end, and ends at the end of Saturday.

    You can watch the live streams on BlizzCon here on Hive! The channels below are from Blizzard's Blizzcon Twitch team.

    Main channel:

    Warcraft (Twitch.TV) | HIVE
    StarCraft (Twitch.TV) | HIVE
    Heroes of the Storm (Twitch.TV) | HIVE
    PlayHearthstone (Twitch.TV) | HIVE

    What can we expect? In a nutshell, some are predicting some sort of Diablo series expansion or remake, new Overwatch and HotS heroes and maps, and a Hearthstone expansion. For PC Gamer's "wild unlikely guesses," Warcraft 4 is among them. PC Gamer: Blizzcon 2016 Predictions

    That's a wrap! Feel free to keep the rest of the Hive updated by posting updates and comments on this thread.

    They've never really completely gone, but recently, competitive and professional melee Warcraft 3 activity has been gaining traction at record speeds since the golden days. Our partner at Back2Warcraft has been doing great things and have even given us shout outs in their live streams & support from their social media. So, check out what's been cracking in the competitive scene, fellow Hive members!

    Coming Up!
    WCA American Qualifier
    The WCA American Qualifier aims to recapture the WC3 / Blizzard game eSports magic in the Americas. It was just officially announced yesterday, and the sign up deadline is on the 27th of October.
    Will be casted & live-streamed by:
    twitch.tv/Back2Warcraft in English

    Recently Concluded!
    Ting Warcraft Invitational
    It was of the biggest Warcraft 3 tournaments that has ever been organized this late into the game's years. It raised over $7,300 from the WC3 community and sponsors.
    TH000 wins the Ting Warcraft Invitational 5-1 vs 120, he earns himself $3,685 while 120 pockets $2,211.
    It was casted and live-streamed by:
    twitch.tv/ESL_WC3 in English
    twitch.tv/Back2Warcraft in German
    twitch.tv/OgamingSC2 in French

    Panda TV Invitational (WC3 Faith Cup)
    An ongoing cup featuring Asian-International pros across the board.
    Casted & live-streamed by:
    twitch.tv/Back2Warcraft in English

    Various community tournaments:
    Gera Cups - Gera Cup #81
    Community MooCups - MooCup #56
    W3arena tournaments

    Some of these are also streamed in Chinese, Russian, Korean, or other languages in other platforms like Panda.tv.​

    While Hive hasn't had a big eSports community, some may remember the old 'Melee Nation' Hive group and the old 'Melee Combat' subforum. There are also many melee map makers constantly providing maps throughout the years. Anyhow, we're happy to bring the melee spirit back to Hive.

    By sharing this, we are also showing how the other parts of the WC3 community are putting in their dedication in present day just as much as some of the most dedicated WC3 modders & artists. Expect more big Warcraft 3 coverage in the future, and next time it may just include big news for the modding scene.
