    In May 2017, The Hive Workshop ran a paired modeling/texturing contest where 6 teams competed for the best leader unit. While entries ranged from sci-fi to comical, it was the Mo'arg Overlord by FerSZ and Murlocologist thatcaptured first place.

    Today, the Mo'arg Overlord commands a strong presence. He's got a 5.00 rating and boasts an army of 6500+ minions (or downloads). With all the care FerSZ and Murlocologist put into the unit, it's not hard to see why. The Overlord looks impressive and imposing while coming with over a dozen animations including attacks, spellcasting, and victory poses with really nice particle effects that I wish I was able to capture in the previews below.

    One of our goals this year is to start up these spotlights once again. There are many projects available and we want to show off the higher quality ones. Expect to see more awesome projects next month.
    If you have any recommendations on any projects that you feel should be showcased, send me a message.

    For those unfamiliar with HiveWE, it's an open-source third-party Warcraft 3 map editor being created by Eejin. You can find more information about it on the resource page.

    A very rough Ralle news post about some breaking Warcraft news!

    I was sent a picture from a Chinese presentation about Warcraft 3 patch 1.31.


    More will most likely surface about what exactly is coming and what is not, but it's definitely exciting.

    Lua support sounds very interesting. I wonder how that is going to work.
