      Holy cow, I thought your name was familiar! You're from SoL as well!

      I was there periodically a few years back (originally "Triumvirate"), & now I'm on the Discord (though not as often as I'd like...).

      Very cool to see you here too; what brings you to *my* stomping grounds? : )

        OK I wish I'd checked before posting; you were here before *I* even was. xD Oh well then.

        Well, I began my Warcraft lore career through modding, but I wasn't as active on English sites back then. I spent most of my time at Spanish mapmaking sites instead (none of which exist anymore lmao).

        Scrolls of Lore was the exception, since there weren't any other good places to talk about lore. Haven't been around there for a while, excessive moderation kinda ruined the good atmosphere it had during the early years. WoW shitting all over the lore didn't help either. I really loved that place, it's a pity it lost its charm :I.

        Also, everyone and their mother changed their goddamn user names so I don't even know who is who anymore xD.

        I decided to return to W3 during the confinment, but then Reforged was a huge flop, so... dunno, I wish I could go back to the good old golden age of modding. Modern gaming is such a pile of trash. So now I check this place when I'm bored, and that's it.

        Huh!

        Well, even though many of the names are different, you should consider checking out the Discord, as it's much more active than the forums (last I checked). If nothing else, a good way to keep in touch with old fellow lore curmudgeons. ; )

        Also, for modding: you can just stick to earlier versions like many of us do (I'm partial to v1.26; good vintage that year ;P); Reforged is generally backwards-compatible so it works.

        Yeah, all those dudes, Rasofe, Spiderweb that Cpt. Obvious and whatnot titles.
        The threads are long gone though since they made a new forums page for some reason.
        You made that altered melee map where we had to defend against zerg and stuff, if I recall correctly.

        The names do sound familiar, but it's been so long... I think we had a group at Skype but I haven't used the program in ages lmao.

        The SC2 editor was a pain so I never got into it. I only made two major maps:

        In Partial Darkness - A demo for expanded cliff tiers, trying to emulate the terrain castles from W3. Protoss defended against zerg, but the gameplay itself was kinda simple. Never got to improve it, since SC2 didn't feel good enough for castle-like siege battles anyway.

        Strategist - Now this one I'm kinda proud of. It was some kind of micro tournament, with two major differences: Each player played against everyone else each round (plus an AI player) and you got to choose a squad of units for each round, unlocking new squads as the rounds progressed. Never got to play it with enough people due to the shitty lobby restrictions, but those who played it loved it, and it was really addicting, even with just 2 players.

        Yeah, there was a Skype group, MasterSyden, AlexSCkill or something like that, other names I can remember.

        Yeah, I think the first one is what we played.
