It had the entirety of Azeroth actually, (or just northrend, lordaeron, I don't remember clearly..) And basically it had Arthas as the Lich King (Custom Model) Naxxramas the floating Citadel, then the Scarlet crusade was also present with the Ashbringer, Alexander Morgraine, and some other heroes. You had a lot of heroes in each side you control, like if u play the Undead you have Arthas, Baron, Anub'arak, Kelthuzad, this butcher abomination dude, and a bunch more I think. Then for the scarlet crusade you had Alexander, uhh I don't remember much bout them, there were events tho, and I think the forsaken was also there. (Again, custom models and also the units) And oh! I think u couldn't train units (Not sure if I remember correctly) and had to wait for them to spawn periodically..
The models and mapwork in that map were beautiful and made it so it wasn't ever goin to be boring to play,
And no, I don't believe it was made in reforged, since our old computer cafe only had warcraft 1.29 and 1.27…
But yeah, never found it again in HIVE and maps.w3reforged.com is a vast library, so I was wondering if u guys remember? Or know somethin, it would be really appreciated and it would be a good opportunity for u guys to try it as well!

While the text is somewhat descriptive, it's not very specific. What type of map was it, RPG, altered melee or Risk type, etc.

There are many maps with the world map of Azeorth as their terrain. For instance:

That detailed Scarlet Crusade with Alexandros as Ashbringer and expanded Scourge makes me think of War In the Plaguelands or Dark Ages of Warcraft. But doesn't match up with the spawn based system and the entirety of azeroth in the same game.

Thinking on it some more it sounds like Lordaeron: The Aftermath, this one has a Forsaken starting faction if I'm remembering it right.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I'll see if I can check them out, I'll remember it when I see it cause it had a very "unique" atmosphere ig?
But yeah, it definitely isn't Azeroth Wars reinvented xD
Vastly different from the amount of detail in the map I remember

Not sure if that's the one, but I hope I can check it out in 1.29..
Also can't exactly remember if it HAD the forsaken, I just mostly remember it had Arthas, that Baron of.. Uhhh Stratholme was it? Kelthuzad, Saphirron, and some other heroes

You should be able to find a version of War in the Plaguelands that works in 1.29 or earlier it's a very old custom game with many versions. Brave epicwar or some such.

This looks similar actually
Kelthuzad doesn't look like that, and oh, another feature I forgot to mention was that if u killed a specific human hero, he turns into an undead, and if he gets ashbringer, he sorta becomes an undead ashbringer?

Regardless this is a great help! I'll certainly look there

That sounds like a custom game including undead Alexandros or Darion Mograine.

Lordaeron: The Aftermath has an event for undead Ashbringer though I don't remember if there is an event buried in there for a death knight Darion.

There are many maps with the world map of Azeorth as their terrain. For instance:
Idunno what to call it actually, it certainly wasn't melee since u just waited for troops to spawn, not altered melee and rpg as well
It was prolly an inspired map by azeroth wars, but it was more polished

Fun to play as well, u could literally just send units at each other… forever ig in theory(they would stop spawning periodically after a certain number, and no you couldn't control whether they spawn in a specific place or not, you can capture locations tho, in which the undead had events in where it then turns the locations into a corrupted version)

Also little detail I should mention, Garithos was there (normal model) and there's this hill with Alexandros being placed there (I think it was dalaran?) Had gates u can open and close.

Then if u played the undead, u first didn't have Arthas, then after a few mins an event would happen (prolly after Arthas and Illidan's battle in Northrend) where Arthas would come back to lordaeron fused with the lich king, and oh, he would spawn inside Naxxramas.

Hope these details help 😅

And uhh, on a sidenote I don't think Reforged was out when I played the map since DOTA was quite popular around that time, and we at most had versions 1.27 and 1.24

Close, the undead death Knight ashbringer was on a horse tho, and yeah it had Alexandros (or whoever it was) as the model riding on said skeleton horse

The map I'm talkin about is prolly old af, and has since been buried by a lot of other maps xD

You drive a hard bargain, it might be Plaguelands: Eternal Conflict or Lordaeron Tactics

These are from 2010 btw

Already know bout lordaeron tactics, not that one unfortunately, and currently tryin out the ones u suggested that I haven't played yet, are there any more?
Edit: Just tried out Lordaeron the Aftermath, this isn't it, the map I'm talking about takes place after the events of the undead campaign in TFA
Not much help, but maybe, just maybe you could find it here:
Downloaded it and holy hell there's a lot of maps, might take me a while to sift through these

I'm not sure there's a good chance I've played what you're hinting at before I've played this accursed game since 2002 but that's a lot of custom games to remember. And I don't have all of my old hard drives anymore to pick through, I think you're looking for one of the strategy spawn based maps with the options to build an additional unit spawner at a main building. Likely one of those maps with a 'castle' or 'barracks' that can build the extra spawn buildings for 5000 or 6000 gold. I would've suggested one of those maps where it's basically a quel'thalas version but none of those include any of the Ashbringers.

It is a spawn based map, but there really wasn't much building, that I remember from it, but yeah, it's hard to search through a lot of these maps, specially when I don't remember the name of the map.
It prolly wasn't that old since it had really good visuals while not being a reforged map, custom models and 3d lich king model as well, regardless my search continues ig, I'll just hope somebody recognizes this map someday.
