    This looks really cool

    Hello, brand new here, just joined a few minutes ago. This looks really really cool. How will this be implemented? Like will it be a series of maps (A custom campaign) etc? or is it sometihng else? if so could you please explain, also does this have a possible release date yet?

    This will be a series of multiplayer maps, all under 8MB so they're all playable on battle.net or via LAN.

    There is no set release date for now, I'm afraid.

    Nice job on getting a forum, this project looks really nice.

    Question are there gonna be special maps like the siege of stormwind or lordaeron capital. Anything in those contexts or is it designed to be purely and alternate melee?

    Interesting question. I can't say for sure whatever we'll actually make something like the examples you name (and if we did it would be in the distant future). But what I do know is that we don't have any plans for that right now.

    Thank you for your kind words(I designed the hosted project site, not Linaze ^^), but this is not the place.
    This topic is exclusively for questions.

    Ask Ralle.
    It's an experimental system for hosted projects as far as I know, but Ralle didn't tell me much. :p

    I was the one in touch with Ralle. Your best shot is to ask him for further information.

    My Questions:
    *Will this game features an AI opponent/ally?
    *Will you guys include creeps in your game? I mean if there will be creeps guarding resources.
    *How many units you'll add in the game?
    *How many multiplayer maps have you planned to release?

    No.
    Yes.
    For the Horde it's something like 14.
    No idea. One for the demo, I guess.

    So there are only creeps guarding gold mines or will they also be guarding those capturable buildings you have mentioned since the beginning of the project?

    Also, when are you going to release screenshots of the new terrain?

    Some capturable buildings might be 'different'. They may not exactly require protection... ;)
    You'll see soon enough. :)

    :D yay!

    Also, I'm curious, did you remove the ogre mage unit entirely? As on your tech-tree page there are only about 7 units, I'm curious if you're going to update that eventually.

    Both the Ogre and Ogre mage are gone. The replacement is the Ogre Mauler, a heavy melee unit that deals extra damage against buildings.

    I'd like to see the buildings of the horde, as there are several that do not exist in the current tech-tree of WC3, such as the steelworks and forge.

    We're using Warcraft 3 models for all buildings but the Temple of Sargeras, which will be worked on in a later date. We're also using a texture for the Dragon Roost though.
    The Steelworks is a Bestiary and the Forge is the BETA War Mill(the War Mill without the saw blade).
    We're working on something relatively big and rather anticipated right now. Estimated time to finish: 1-2 weeks. In my honest opinion, it's quite worth the wait. :D
    And no, it's not a demo.

    I actually think he meant that he wants an actual list of the Horde structures.

    Alrighty, if that's what he meant, here we go:

    • Great Hall: Trains peons and upgrades to Stronghold and Fortress to enable further tiers.
    • Barracks: Trains Grunts, Troll Axethrowers and Ogre Maulers.
    • Pig Farm: Provides food.
    • Watch Tower: Defensive structure.
    • Shrine of Sargeras: Trains Death Knights and Warlocks.
    • Steelworks: Trains Goblin Sappers, Catapults and a flying unit that will be revealed later.
    • Dragon Roost: Hatches Dragons.
    • Forge: Contains defensive and offensive upgrades.
    • Sawmill: Drop off point for lumber. May contain upgrades.
    • Docks: Builds ships.
