Yeah I hope so... because this is far from great. I played this campaign, however. Somewhere the plot attacked me greatly with it curiosity
, than the legion of Abominations and Meat Wagons.
I see, that you upgrade your campaign! This deserves a bonus point.
I feel the same one.
I lagged in the fourth mission greatly and with Arthas in the 2nd.
Try a better icon...
I gladly see that you fixed this error.
Hah! I learn Age of Empires II about this, so I just built a considerable defense with Towers, Mortar Teams and Knights. I successfully completed the 2nd, in plot part I will speak about it.
I liked, that mission. Only this one, the holy light makes the team unkillable if you gathered them by click and use the paladins to heal the troops.
Oh... this is a bad, awful, boring, lagging mission, I hope you repair it, or already repaired that. Why you need 5000 towers? I think, that caused some lag. End cinematic is fair in mission four.
Well, that towers is really not neccessary.
(Huh... I do not find words, interesting, yes...)
but totally awful with some interesting point.
Arthas tried to clean Stratholme from the plagued ones. Arthas and Uther here begun their remarkable argue.
- How could you even consider that? There is must have been other way!
- Uther, as your future king, I ordered you to purge this city.
After this vision may be happened but not...
Vision happened before the arguing.
Alexstraza, the Red Dragon appeared, the Life Binder... so many titles. Well... that is wrong.
I think, that the Life Binder might be replaced with someone from the future, who came back with Alexstraza (if you insist to her) and evidence from Arthas' future madness. Visions is not enough here, as a stubborn man, who had clear goals, not step back, if somebody shows him cloudy visions.
I see, you are an Arthas fan, anyway. His memory is so glorified in this campaign, but in here his story is even darker, terrific and hopeless.
When I played in the first mission, there are no point to siege Stratholme undead bases. But, I saw that Arthas let the people to the hands of Mal'Ganis. You know, Mal'Ganis is sent by Ner'Zhul to lure Arthas to the North, his plan is broken here, but Mal'Ganis seems to collect dozens of zombies to his army. Jaina return here with reinforcements, but I think she just teleport them far away.
1. Plot hole question: How teleport work? Jaina why not used it to teleport far away them instead of wandering the town sewers? They have to port Dalaran or Terenas' throne room at once. (For example in WOW, casting people able to summon others from far away others or open portals to distant places, in the Warcraft 3 map bounds is the only one, which halted this, I think, that is will be your answer for my plot hole question, but you may just solved it teleport away them an unseen place and showed them in a following map.
Following the plot review: In second map, Arthas warns Terenas. They agreed about the protection of the capital city. Surely... if in original story Sylvanas owns a large army like Mal'Ganis in your story, she was crush Balnazzar with a breathe. Arthas, Uther and Jaina hold the undead army, which is contains a dozen of meat wagons and abominations. Oh... with this they should attacked the World Tree and Dalaran. (Some people will surely deactivate the Archmage aura protection)
2. Plot Hole Question:
Have you ever played the RoC and Frozen Throne campaigns? Even if you changed the events, you should planned it more details. I tell you why.
The undead captured Stratholme with Mal'Ganis and grow his huge army even larger. Where is Tichondrius and the others? It seems Mal'Ganis are a pretty dumb leader, he wasting the undead horde to raid the humans. Did he not instructed about the larger plans and control the large-sized scourge army as he wants? Ok... I follow with 3rd mission:
Arthas, Terenas, Uther, Jaina and Captain someone escaped through the sewers with few more soldiers. Why they not teleport away? Or they wants to save the prisoners? Noble act, anyway in here nothing happened. In fourth mission their way separated. Terenas and Uther went away to Quel'Thalas, while Jaina and Arthas went with Kalimdor, however in original story Arthas rejected this, without thinking. In here, he gladly leave the people. If make this logical, the time travelers with Alexstraza must carry themselves a serious evidence to change a stubborn man to so willingly. So... Uther and Terenas make their way to the Elf lands... where they destroyed a lot of
towers, the Scourge is really owns a lot of resource, if they build towers like in this great amount. His majesty and Uther make their way to Silvermoon (I guess) where they meet Sylvanas, who is not transformed.
PLOT TWIST: It seems
Forsaken plot is driven out.
: Sylvanas and the paladins (one of them is a king) captured by Mal'Ganis, who seems to be a larger ranked leader before, as he raiding Eversong and Ghostlands with his large army. In mission 5th Arthas and Jaina arrived Kalimdor to a camp, which contained humans, in their way they fought with gnolls, centaurs, and Warsong Orcs... when they reached New Stromgarde a relationship between Jaina and Arthas are begin to grow. The following mission things begun to malicious. Arthas entered Ashenvale and literally crush everything. He killed Shandris, Thrall, dozens of orcs and night elves. (In outro, night elves liked him, how? He attacked their land, did he shift the attention to the orcs? Not explained in story) Arthas anyway caused the destruction of the World Tree, or just make harder for Furion to protect it, he make it more harder. He killed Thrall and literally the Horde in Kalimdor. Only Grom and his troops remained away. The subplot with Bloody and Antonidas is silly... sorry.
He give him the book without suspect, that Bloody works for Kel'Thuzad (his ressurection is remained mystery. Uther guards the proper urn for his ressurection, how he can ressurected (Kel'Thuzad)?
4. Plot Hole question maybe:
The next campaign will explain Kel'Thuzad's ressurect? I think that Mal'Ganis was the ressurector, but this make the story easily calculable with his grand-sized army. Hope it happens in a different way.
Bloody seems to be an ersatz of Arthas. Kel'Thuzad captures him and with the book, he can begun the summoning of Archimonde, who able to defeat the humans easier than the original story. However, the troops of Dalaran can able to strike the undeads, because Arthas do not attacked them and defeat them. So troops and archmages alive yet.
Arthas went to Tanaris from where?
Ok... ok. Let's see Cenarius. He seems that he not know about that Arthas killed many night elf in Ashenvale, he just talk with them and realize the aura of the Red Dragon, Alexstraza. He told him about New Stromgarde and Arthas turn back at once to save the humans. (This is a true Arthas moment) I think that version, that Cenarius may only wants to sent him off, because he may more powerful than Grom. In here Cenarius also lose against Grom and the fel orcs, who are without Thrall remained fel. So Archimonde gain another army, while Furion lost the orc support in the possible future. Arthas arrived Tanaris from Un'Goro and
(you need to see the Tanaris map better, just an advise, because Uldum is not revealed by the Cataclysm, before that hills closed that region.
) begun to conflict with the local lifeforms. Both Centaur and Troll. In the end, he allied with Gadgetzan and help them to defeat stolen ships, also Arthas killed the centaurs and the trolls, because they attacked them. (this is also fit for Arthas) (I end with eight mission)
In last mission, he attacked the trolls of Zul'Farrak, prevent the summoning of Hakkar and kill Chief Sandscalp, we can tell, that he goes through the whole instance. In here you reveal the cliché future of Arthas, where humanity is strong... the bronze dragons and the night elves liked him.
I follow with the 8th mission and the undeads with Bloody or Bloodly (ah... he needs a better name.)
Terenas with Uther escaped from prison and kill the monster Patrick and reach a town, where they choose between Ironforge or Stormwind. I chose Stormwind... they make their way, but the duo met with Kel'Thuzad and Bloody... the flaming-headed releases ghouls to kill them. His majesty, Terenas II died and Uther taking captive and later he became a death knight. In here, the Undead may control the Plaguelands and possibly destroyed Ironforge and Stormwind with their over-sized army and without formal resistance, also without the leader of Silver-Hand, the paladins may died easier and lesser organized in battle, without the Forsaken or anyone, Kel'Thuzad controls the region, while Thrall died Furion is not surely able to hold off Archimonde and make a trap for him.
: Music is fine, however it too loud in campaign screen, even if I turn low the sound quantity. High elf models are average, except buildings. Buildings are beautiful.
: Please do not tell, that taste is subjective or why I play through your campaign, if I not like it? Well I played it and I find it promising, but it contains a lot of plot errors. Gameplay is average with some lags.
Models, skins: 3/5
Final Rating: 3
I make this review through more than two hours. Hope it was useful.
