    Custom races applied for all maps (modding)

    I play with the thought to finalize the custom races which are half done by Blizzard and never implemented fully because of balance reasons, so they appear only in the campaigns/ in certain custom maps. So the goal is to implement (make playable) the following races to all maps (melee...

    Why don't the 4 playable races have the same number of trainable units?

    Excluding workers and heroes, humans and orcs have 11 trainable units, night elves have 10, scourge has only 9. Same for buildings. Humans and Undead both have an extra building with no equivalent in other races (lumbermill and sacrificial pit). Is there a balance/gameplay reason for this? I...

    [Altered Melee] Some race ideas

    Mostly harvesting ideas, just throwing them out there, feedback is appreciated. Kobolds: Hall = Mine, the mine is already harvested by itself (+10/15 a pop), either like an Entangled gold mine or without units, but still costing some upkeep (let's keep it fair). No wood costs, pretty hefty...

    What makes a custom race fun to play?

    What makes a custom race fun to play? Is it balance, originality (in gameplay), large amount of spells? Should it use it's own mechanics or be simmilar to Blizzard's races?

    If you could only choose one class per race and faction as representant

    Hello. I'm kind of investigating a bit and would like to know what would be the representant in each race/class combo, if applicable. This is not about class efficiency (i.e. which tank is better or so), it's merely for lore purposes. The rule is simple: only one race per class; two counting...
