    You're about as beyond on this as Wtii is, whom only has like 8 of the episodes uploaded on his channel. xD

    In fact, they're on the Undead Campaign now.

    They seem reasonable players. Still I wonder how many out-takes they had...

    Haha. These are great. I loved this campaign. Can't wait til you get to the "Blackrock and Roll Two!" level (I think it is where kel'thuzad and arthas face the different orc teams). It'll be a hell of a challenge if you try to do it on insane.

    Hi purge, i am not sure if you played the more recent level of that. The newer version was made so it was actually beatable. The original one that my friend and i tried to beat was actually impossible no matter how good we were. We even abused some triggers such as sending a unit into the first orc party that sits on the hill waiting to attack to stop it form hitting, and other ridiculous abuses, but it was actually IMPOSSIBLE.

    The newer one is far easier, they should have 0 problem.

    I think I played it post-nerf, but I still struggled a bit. Took my friend and I a few tries before we finally got through it.

    Although we aren't pros in any form of the word. :D I liked the challenge though, it made the ending very satisfying. It became a tad easier after taking out one base, but the dragons were literally the biggest douchebags in the universe. They just ate your acolytes and messed up your mining. Only solution was to amass gargoyles, but it put such a damper on resources.

    But once you get the blue base, you get a bit more income and that helps a great deal. After you kill a second base, it is still a little difficult because you'll end up having to defend on two fronts. After the third base, things are pretty much set in stone and its gg.

    So far we are finding that a safe and defensive build up and then a mass army steam roll are the best options. Slow going and the challenge is absolutely awesome

    Yes, that approach is fine for the current version. But for the people who played the older versions (only a few did before he nerfed them) the issue was holding the base in the first place was impossible. I mean, even with the gayest tactics like taking the other persons gold mine so the other person could max units without penalty could not win us the game, especially on black rock and roll II.

    In the updated versions, there are no undead levels that offer significant challenge. The last level of the undead campaign is actually easier on insane than it is playing as 1 player, because the difficulty with that level was microing the different sides, and not being able to use all the items on arthas because he didn't have enough space, but with falric it is a breeze. Currently i think the final human level is the hardest of all the maps (not the custom one, the one with Malganis)

    I was one of those people who played on the original version. That version was like those oldest games where it just got harder and harder until you eventually lost. :D

    It doesnt seem like so, last time hes done something on the hive was about 5 months ago. Inspite that I still have my hopes of someone continuing his work.

    There's a hope that our playthrough will inspire someone to finish the work and we'll be able to bring everyone the completed collection.

    It's still a low chance for that.

    It's actually very surprising that nobody has taken it over; I've seen alot of really good mapmakers on the Hive.
