    Believe me when I say that there's a very good reason for that. There's like zero room for creativity in modding someone else's work. This is especially true because everyone wants Blizzard's work only slightly modified. Even if the map turns out great and everyone loves it, you know all too well that is none of your achivement, but Blizzard's.

    Other than that, there's a huge amount of background work that makes a single player map into a two player map, making it a massive time sink even though you really did nothing yet to improve the experience.

    So it is in conflict with the very reason we like to make maps, that is, to make something new and original.

    In the end, it makes it very hard for example for me to make progress.

    I'm up for working on a project, but not to much.
    I could help out with ideas, on how the 2P player missions could work, how long the missions could take with more help with a second player and so forth.

    McQvaBlood how did TheSpoon get in making the 2P missions for them?
    I was hoping to see the finished project of the Orc Campaign, because I love the Horde and it was awesome playing it.

    It sure does seem like a lot of work and coordination to decide the size, composition, frequency and strength of waves along with splitting power evenly between players and making sure triggers work for money, tech and exchanges.

    It's not that Azothan. When you continue someone elses work it's not the same feeling when you do your own work. This can be one of the main factors why none would even think of continuing it.

    I still haven't given up on continuing the Frozen Throne maps. It's just that while in university, it's not a monotonous, repetitive work you really want to do in your free time. (Since that is pretty much what you do all day in university too.)
    I hope to get back into it during the summer and release a few more maps for this project.

    @ Warlord Ajer'laroir: I don't really understand what you're interested in. Can you phrase that differently?

    That campaign is not that good as everybody says, you should try Pyraeus' 2p campaign maps.

    Well, to be honest his maps are good but are too different from the originals for my taste; The-Spoon's maps had very little changes when it comes to the bases and mechanics. Also I cannot seem to find his website; I'm pretty sure he talked about his website in the thread about the maps but I cannot seem to find neither it nor other maps, if any at all.

    What I meant is the other maps;I'm sure he started the blood elf campaign some time ago but in the end the only map on the Hive is the first chapter and even if he made them all I'll still prefer The-Spoon's version (no offence its just a personal prefference) for the same reason I stated above - It's just too different from the original for someone like me who has basicly grown up with the campaign.

    He already started Iceborn

    I tend to like thespoon's work over the other as well,
    We played the exodus campaign and they added a lot of new twists on it and some maps were just deem bad placement. the last mission for example was a poor placement for the exodus 5. He also added almost a complete new race (trolls) for the mission, which is cool, if your into that, but i just want to play the original (as little changes as possible)
    As I continue to learn about map making, I would be willing to also form a group of players to Finnish this project.
