Story:

Horde of Azeroth


When Gul'Dan and Cho'gall took a third of the Horde's army west out into the sea, Infinite Dragons in disguise advised Doomhammer not to go after them and instead, continue pressing on towards the Capital City. Despite the valiant efforts of its defenders, the city was eventually overrun by the Horde. While his warriors were busy consolidating their territory and pursuing the escaping civilians, Doomhammer received reports that remnants of the Alliance's army were gathering at Stromgarde. With that knowledge, he planned his next move.

Doomhammer marched his army toward Alterac City only to find the city sacked and its treacherous nobles executed. He decided to set up camp in the ruined city for his attack upcoming attack on Stromgarde. His warriors were able to round up some Perenolde loyalists. He then commanded them to join up with the fleeing refugees and infiltrate the other remaining kingdoms in exchange for their lives. His warriors would also find the exiled Frostwolves hiding in a valley. Doomhammer went there to ask Durotan personally to join his conquest of the continent but the latter refused. Durotan called out Doomhammer on his genocidal campaign and told him that he was no better than Gul'Dan and Blackhand. Despite their refusal to join, Doomhammer decided to leave the Frostwolves in peace.

Meanwhile in Quel'thalas, Zul'jin and his detachment was able to breach Silvermoon. With the help of Gul'dan's Death Knight who remained under his command, they were able to overpower the city's defenders. As they began to slaughter countless numbers of High Elves, they were attacked from behind by the Wildhammer Dwarves who had just abandoned Aerie Peak. Zul'jin's detachment was eventually routed with the remaining Death Knights annihilated. Zul'jin would gather another army in order to attack Silvermoon again but was called back by Doomhammer.

Thanks to the Horde's huge spoils, Trade Prince Steamwheedle was able to buy off numerous assets from the other cartels in Kezan. As he was aggressively taking over his rivals' businesses, Doomhammer would ask him for more siege units. Expecting even more spoils, Steamwheedle happily obliged.

After he had assembled his army, Doomhammer led the attack against the Alliance stationed at Stromgarde. The siege would drag on for months but the Horde with their superior numbers eventually won the battle. Doomhammer personally battled and slew Anduin Lothar in single combat. Despite their decisive victory, he would eventually discover that Stromgarde was just a decoy. By the time they had conquered Stromgarde, Dalaran was protected by a shield, Gilneas was protected by the Greymane Wall, and Kul'Tiras was protected by a naval blockade.

The Horde's victory in Stromgarde cemented their dominion in the mainland. Doomhammer ordered the settling of their newly conquered territory. Orcs from Draenor would arrive in droves through the Dark Portal. Meanwhile in Kezan, Steamwheedle was able to buy off the entire island for his cartel and now called himself Trade King with the other Trade Princes either going into exile or committing suicide. Despite all of this, Doomhammer knew that he would still have to deal with remnants of the Alliance in the future. Zul'jin had already began launching raids against Silvermoon once again while the Black Tooth Grin Clan continued with the siege of Ironforge and Gnomeregan. Doomhammer also knew that he would have to deal with Gul'dan as well and had already sent scouts after them. Nonethless, Doomhammer was confident that it was only a matter of time before all of the continent belongs to them.



Grand Crusade


Despite the valiant efforts Lordaeron's defenders, the capital fell and King Terenas Menethil died along with most of his subjects. Upon hearing the news, Anduin Lothar had to think of a plan to divert the Horde's attention elsewhere to give survivors enough time to evacuate. He sent messenger ravens to other surviving commanders of his plan to make a last stand in Stromgarde while survivors flee to either Dalaran, Gilneas, Kul'Tiras, or Quel'Thalas.

The Kirin Tor were already making preparations to raise their city into the sky while under the protection of an impenetrable force field. Under orders of King Genn Greymane, masons also began constructing a wall to separate Gilneas from the rest of the continent. Meanwhile, Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore ordered evacuation ships to rescue as many refugees as possible from the shores of Hillsbrad. He also ordered some of his navy to ensure the safe journey of these ships while the rest of the navy form a blockade around his island nation.

On the other hand, King Anasterian Sunstrider ordered an evacuation of Silvermoon City and had his subjects along with refugees relocated to Quel'Danas Isle as the Forest Trolls led by Zul'jin besiege the ancient city. As they fled, swaths of High Elven citizens were massacred by the invading Trolls. Fortunately for them, fleeing Wildhammer Dwarves attacked the Zul'jin's army from behind and together routed them for the time being. In the Aftermath, Wildhammer citizens joined the other refugees at Quel'Danas Isle while their troops remained with Silvermoon's defenders. With a huge portion of their population dead, the High Elves renamed themselves as the Blood Elves in honor of their fallen and have resorted to the darker side of the arcane.

In Alterac City, King Thoras Trollbane received news of Lordaeron's fall and of Lothar's plan. Before setting forth towards Stromgarde, he personally executed King Aiden Perenolde and had the rest of the nobility put to the sword. He then told the citizens to flee while he added Alterac's troops to his own.

Eventually, Anduin Lothar was able to amass a huge host in Stromgarde. Together with numerous charismatic figures such as Turalyon, King Thoras, and Uther the Lightbringer, he rallied the troops to make the ultimate sacrifice as the Horde converged on the city. They cut down multiple bands Orcs, Forest Trolls, Goblins, and Ogres who poured into the city. For every one of them who fell, many more died on the side of the Horde. Unfortunately, the Horde's superior numbers took its toll on them and they all died fighting down to the last man. Thanks to their efforts though, the Kirin Tor, the Gilneans, and the Tirassians were able to put up the defenses in their respective kingdoms on time.

Despite their massive losses together with the deaths of some of their leaders, remnants of the Alliance continue to have hope. Heirs of the fallen kingdoms together with some of their subjects were safely evacuated. Thanks to their ingenuity, Gnomes and Dwarves were able to build a complex network of tunnels connecting Gnomeregan, Ironforge, Silvermoon, and Gilneas to each other. This allowed the remaining leaders to coordinate their efforts in rebuilding their forces albeit with some bickering. As the next powerful Human kingdom after Stormwind and Lordaeron, Gilneas became the new backbone of the Alliance supplying it with fresh troops and equipment. By this time, they had renamed themselves as the Grand Crusade who prepare for the fight of their lives not only to fend off the Horde from their remaining land but hopefully to reclaim those that they have lost.



Undead Scourge


After sailing away from the Eastern Kingdoms, Gul'Dan and his loyalists eventually reached the location of Sargeras' tomb which he raised from the ocean floor. With his forces intact, he was able to navigate his way through the tomb and acquire the Eye of Sargeras. The artifact increased his powers immensely and he was able to subjugate the Demons lurking within the tomb.

Gul'Dan had the tomb of Sargeras transformed as his own base. He then began summoning even more Demons and creatures from other worlds to subjugate to his will. His actions would eventually attract the Burning Legion. With the Horde no longer under their control, the Burning Legion hoped to use Gul'Dan's new found power to further their own plans. During one of Gul'Dan's summonings, Tichondrius the Darkerner appeared before him. Due to the Eye, Gul'Dan was able to subjugate the Dread Lord as well. However, this was all part of the Burning Legion's ruse.

While under Gul'Dan's control, Tichondrius taught Gul'Dan more about the art of Necromancy. He then offered his erstwhile master the Helm of Domination. When Gul'Dan raised his fallen soldiers, he became one with them. He was able to move their bodies as if they were his own. When scouts sent by Doomhammer finally tracked them down, he decided to test his newly acquired powers. The Undead massacred the scouts who were then raised into Undeath as well.

With Gul'Dan now in false sense of security, Tichondrius told him about Archimonde the Defiler and about how he would be able to control the powerful Demon Lord to destroy his enemies. Tichondrius also told him that in order to summon Archimonde, they would need the Book of Medivh which was hidden in Dalaran. Overconfident in his abilities, Gul'Dan agreed to the Dread Lord's plan. His armies of Undead and Demons then set off back to the mainland to do their master's bidding.



Nazjatar Empire


When Gul'dan raised the Tomb of Sargeras from the depths of the sea, the Naga sensed the disturbance and went to investigate. They then discovered the Undead and Demons amassing. Azshara was angry upon hearing this for she is still bitter for being "abandoned" by the Burning Legion about 10,000 years ago. She then orders the Naga to foil the Legion's plans.

They were able to determine that the Legion was planning on marching against the Eastern Kingdoms. The Naga would eventually discover the Orcs as well but considers them no different from the Demons sensing Mannoroth's taint within them. Upon discovering that the Orcs were being supplied by the Goblins of Kezan, they began raiding the island hindering the production of Horde war machines.

The Naga has no love for the Humans, Dwarves, and Gnomes either. The only ones who they consider worthy of allying with were the Blood Elves who are their distant kin. And so, they sent a detachment to aid the Blood Elves. The Blood Elves, were grateful but remains wary of their new ally.

    Story


    While majority of the high ranking officers of the Alliance were keeping the Horde busy at Stromgarde, the likes of General Abbendis, Inquisitor Isillien, and Alexandros Mograine were tasked with the evacuation of the civilian population throughout Lordaeron. By the time Stromgarde fell, they were evacuating Stratholme. However, there were a significant number of residents who insisted on staying and defending their homes to the death. The three were ordered by the government-in-exile of Lordaeron situated at Quel’Danas Isle to abandon them.

    The trio argued on whether to defend or abandon the people who decided to stay. As the argument went back and forth, a Horde scouting party attacked the city forcing the trio and their men to repel the invaders. When the invaders retreated, the people celebrated and elected Abbendis as Grand Protector of the realm. His first act was to name Isillien and Mograine Grand Inquisitor and Grand Commander respectively.

    Grand Protector Abbendis’ early rule was rocky. Their superiors branded them as deserters but did nothing to apprehend them thinking the Horde would do away with the traitors for them. Fortunately for them, their initial success spread to others who also refused to abandon their homes. Lords Valdelmar of Tyr’s Hand, Fordring of Mardenholde, Barov of Caer Darrow, and Agamand of Agamand Mills had severed ties with the Alliance high command and swore fealty to him instead. Feeling abandoned by their fellow Gilneans behind the Greymane Wall, Lords Silverlaine of Pyrewood and Crowley of Ambermill offered an alliance with them but still considered themselves subjects of the Gilnean Crown. Dwarves and High Elves who remained at Dun Garok, Aerie Peak, and different Elven lodges also chose him as leader rather than their respective racial leaders. In order to keep morale high, Abbendis promised that after defeating the Horde, he would redraw the geopolitical landscape with those who swore loyalty to him rewarded accordingly.

    Despite his numerous allies, Abbendis’ ragtag army was easily overwhelmed by the Horde in early battles. Mardenholde and Agamand Mills were demolished with most of its inhabitants massacred. Their Dwarven and Elven allies were also forced to abandon their holdings to avoid a similar fate resorting to guerrilla tactics instead. Eventually, a sizeable contingent of the Horde forces came knocking at the gates of Stratholme. Even though it was just a fraction of the Horde’s total numbers, it was still enough to overwhelm the defenders. Abbendis and Mograine lead the charge while Isillien tried to maintain calm among the civilian population. Despite killing many of the Horde forces, they were still losing due to their enemies’ immense numbers. Just as all hope was lost, a small band of warriors and healers lead by Saidan Dathrohan arrived and turned the tides of battle. In the end, Abbendis’ army stood victorious despite huge losses.

    Abbendis and Mograine were initially shocked to see Dathrohan given that the latter supposedly perished at the battle of Stromgarde. Nonetheless, both were thankful to him and his warriors although Mograine remained suspicious of him. Dathrohan claimed he and his men were saved by the Holy Light and given another chance to do battle against the Horde. Abbendis welcomed Dathrohan and his men into the city but Mograine warned the Grand Protector to keep a close eye on them.

    Mograine’s fears were proven warranted when Dathrohan and his men began killing some of the populace. When questioned by Abbendis, Dathrohan claimed that they were simply purging those who the Holy Light deemed “unclean”. Mograine called for their executions but Abbendis let them go arguing that they were popular among the populace. In fact, majority of the people supported the purges. Eventually, the supporters called for the promotion of Dathrohan. With Isillien’s support, Dathrohan was made co-commander alongside Mograine to the latter’s chagrin. Eventually, Kel’Thuzad of Dalaran asked to conduct secret research at Caer Darrow. Wary of magi, Mograine did not want to do anything with him but Dathrohan convinced Abbendis otherwise. This only fuelled the tension between the two commanders even more.

    When the Alliance was reformed into the Grand Crusade with the goal of repelling the Horde, Grand Commander Othmar Garithos offered Grand Protector Abbendis an ultimatum: swear fealty or die. Mograine called for reconciliation but Dathrohan denounced the Grand Crusade as cowards who abandoned them. In order to settle the dispute, Isillien urged Abbendis to turn towards the populace. The overwhelming majority chose to side with Dathrohan. Hence, Abbendis reformed his forces into the Scarlet Crusade not only having the same goal as that of the Grand Crusade in driving out the Horde but also to establish a new world order with the Holy Light at its center.

    Caer Darrow (May Day 2015) - Can choose the Risen when you play as Human


    Story


    As the forces of the Grand Crusade, the Horde, and the Scarlet Crusade battle it out in the Eastern Kingdoms, Kel’Thuzad’s research in Caer Darrow was able to make great strides in the field of necromancy. Resurrecting the dead is not unknown but unlike before, he was able to keep the minds of the reanimated more intact. Even more surprising was that some of the Undead subjects were able to channel the Holy Light. When he presented it to the leaders of the Scarlet Crusade, most were disgusted. Mograine went as far as calling for Kel’Thuzad’s execution for what he has done. Dathrohan however had a different take on it. He argued that Kel’Thuzad’s work had the Holy Light’s blessing proven by the fact that it continues to answer the call of some of the Undead. Eventually, Abbendis decided that the new Undead form a contingent under the command of Dathrohan: the Risen. However, Kel’Thuzad was not allowed to raise more until further notice.

    The Risen did well in the battles that followed. By putting them on the frontlines, Dathrohan was able to minimize casualties. The effectiveness reached the populace and calls for Kel’Thuzad to raise more began to grow. Meanwhile, Mograine’s support continued to bleed away. This fuelled the animosity between the two commanders even further.

    As time passed, rumors began to circulate about an army of Demons sailing from the west and sea serpents being spotted near the shores. The Scarlet Crusade’s leadership deemed such stories silly until their scouts and spies reported some disturbing turn of events. Kul Tiras has fallen to an army of Demons. Meanwhile, defectors from Quel’thalas arrived. Their leader, Dar’Khan Drathir warned that the Grand Crusade has allied with sea serpents called the Naga. Dathrohan called for allowing Kel’Thuzad to raise more Undead but Mograine continued to protest. As the two commanders bickered on, their northern shores were attacked by the Grand Crusade backed by the Naga. Both commanders rushed to repel the invaders but when the battle was over, only one of them returned: Dathrohan. Mograine supposedly fell fighting the enemy. Supporters of Mograine warned of foul play but Abbendis knew they can’t waste any time for an investigation and thus, Dathrohan became sole commander of the army.

    Dathrohan ordered Kel’Thuzad to continue raising Undead to replenish their army. Many volunteered to be raised as Undead and the number of Risen swelled. Dathrohan also ordered Dar’Khan to find ways to strengthen the Elves. Using artefacts he hoarded as he left Silvermoon, he succeeded but at a cost. The Elves became Wretched. Dathrohan said that it did not matter what they were as long as they succeeded on the battlefield. Abbendis can only look from the sidelines as Dathrohan rallied his empowered army, wondering if he made the right decision.

    Well this is boring map. I have tons of resouces, most powerful heroes that cannot get stronger, many buildings and much more towers. If I am right I have eight heroes that are pretty powerful. With four of them I've devastated two bases way too easy. Enemies are not attacking me, so why would I need such hard defenses? All I had to do to win was to order my Zeppelin to take as much of heroes as it could take and bring them all at the middle of base and the base falls in few minutes. Where's fun in that?

    I rate this map by 1/5 and I suggest this map for Rejection because of such imbalance and neutral enemies that do nothing until you attack them.

    I suggest you to reduce the power of your force and enemies as well.

    AP, you are telling that this map has way too powerful heroes and units. Haven't you seen that your maps have the same thing? But I agree with you.

    It was balanced. And here is? I wouldn't say so.
    Unit can be strong as creator wants if gameplay will be balanced, so that wouldn't make any problems.

    Ok, I kinda hate that you put legendary heroes to guard the central gold mines and that the centre is unaccesible.
    Also remove those hydralisks, they ruin everything!

    Anyway, where are those custom race shops, I cant find them anywhere.

    Managers

    The ones (Manager) who sells workers are shown here. The red circles in the minimap show where they can be found. The picture itself shows the one found in the southeast. The Manager is the selected unit (with green circle below).

    Other Races

    There are other races but until I learn how to initiate a multi-race melee map, you can buy their workers from "Managers". I downloaded a lot of models to make a total of 8 new races/factions.

    well first dont doubblepost.
    Second: It's okay to create new races, but use skins over models, because it reduces the filesize alot.
    Third: Melle maps shouldn't be to much differentiated, so don't import to many models, it's really way too large!!!

    Sharing Heroes

    I forgot to mention that some races/faction share Heroes because they aren't really different from each other. Most importantly, the Gameplay Constants can only accommodate a number of Hero units and I've reached the maximum already.

    Damnit.
    I mean everything is okay with this map, but the fact that it's 7.65 mb will make it hard to play it full house ever.
    300 seconds dl per user, lawl.
    And really don't 2xpost everytime-.-
