Notes
What a journey it's been. The original Lord of the Clans started development in 2002, when the original Warcraft 3 was released. Never in my life did I imagine that I would still be working on this campaign over 20 years later. After so many updates we get to play it with voice acting and in glorious HD. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoy making it. Thank you, and onto the next 20 years of Warcraft!

Woah there cowboy. Is this considerably different from the original xD?
Why a new thread, and more importantly delete the previous instead of updating :|?
Both versions share the same gameplay foundation, similar to how multiple variations of "Scourge of Lordaeron" exist.

Going forward the HD version will be the one to receive major updates (content/gameplay/audio/visuals), while the SD version is the "Classic" version to remain the same forever (aside from bugfixing), similar how WoW separates Retail and Classic.

Presenting both of them on a single resource page would heavily take away from each of them has to offer.

Let me know if you disagree and maybe we can think of a solution together.

If they are quite different (let's say like more than just a quality of life and visual/artistic enhancement edit) it's OK to have its own thread IMO, otherwise, the campaign files can be downloaded separately from the same thread and have their own description section in the same map thread description. What say you?

As you see, the "marketing" is now in full force. Changing the presentation for HD and SD would take some time. For the moment, I would like to have a clean cut between the projects, and have some time to think of how they be presented in a different way. I'm thinking about bundling the older versions as well (1.0 and 2.0 were very different from the current 3.0).

You know your stuff better and are vastly more experienced in what you do. I just want stuff properly organized around here.
Not sure what marketing has to do with it exactly since the news post can have its link changed no problems.
I guess if you are going to have those Classic variations, then cluttering one thread wouldn't be a good idea. So the Reforged one might definitely use its own space.

I agree. My vision is that I would use a single "Classic" thread for the various SD versions, while the HD version is promoted as the modern "standard" Lord of the Clans.

Its not just the Hive link that has to change. Potentially news websites are going to link here.

OMG! I'm so in love with your work, thank you so much for doing this. I would like to offer my free translation to Spanish if you need it in the future.
With love,

Even more awesome, thanks for your work.

Few points to improve even if it's not much :
  • From chapter 2 to 3, it didn't save my items/lvl etc... first time, I don't know if it's rare or not but it happened to me. I reloaded last autosave and then worked fine.
  • On chapter 3, researches cost are shown 10 times cheaper for some reasons, it fixes if you reload the map. It does happen pretty often, I don't know what causes it and only on this chapter.
  • On the scene where Thrall and Thareta talks for last time, Thrall has body turned the wrong way, but face the right way, which is both creepy and fun to watch.
  • On the last chapter, Whirlwind of Thrall (W tornado) hurts allies too.
  • Sometimes cinematics arn't smooth, like playing on 1 fps. It might be me or be WC3 reforged, so I'm just pointing out.
  • Not really your fault, as I suppose most voices are AI generated, but voices do feel off some times.

I really wish to try this campaign, but very unfortunately it crashes on macOS
1) M3 MacBook (Sonoma 14.1) 2023 (right after first mission starts, cinematic with a clock is shown aaand crash).
2) intel MacBook (Sonoma 14.3.1) 2018 (cinematic does not even start, just black screen and crash right after "click any button after mission load")


If it has any use to you, I can share a full crash log (it says EXC_BAD_ACCESS and unreadable stack trace addresses)

<Exception.Summary:>

Hey, I wanted to play the campaign while I try to chill a bit, and the description mentions an Italian translation, but when I open the campaign, it's entirely in English. Do I need to download a specific version for it to work or it should work automatically?

Hello, the italian translation is actually not implemented yet :/ It will be released in a few months.

Ooh okay, maybe I misread it somewhere, I thought it was already released! No matter, I'll still play with the english text then! Just out of curiosity, will the Italian translation also have additional voicelines or it's still gonna use the English voiceacting?

I just finished playing the Reforged version and I am amazed!
I remember playing the classic version and saying this can't improve. I'm glad I was wrong.
Here's what I have in detail

Terrain: The terrain design is nothing short of breathtaking! Each map is meticulously crafted, blending lush forests, daunting mountains, and eerie dungeons seamlessly. The attention to detail in the landscapes enhances the visual appeal and adds depth to the overall immersion. Every corner of the map feels alive, and the varied environments keep the gameplay fresh and engaging.

Gameplay: The gameplay is a perfect balance of challenge and fun. The custom units and abilities are well-thought-out, offering a new layer of strategy while maintaining the essence of Warcraft. The missions are diverse, ranging from intense battles to clever puzzles, ensuring that we the players are constantly on our toes. The AI is smart and responsive, providing a worthy challenge without feeling unfair.

Mechanics: The mechanics are innovative and well-implemented. The new features blend seamlessly with the existing mechanics of Warcraft Reforged, enhancing the overall experience. From resource management to unit control, everything feels intuitive and polished. The custom mechanics add a layer of depth that makes the gameplay even more engaging.

Overall: In general, this custom campaign is a masterpiece in my opinion. It excels in every aspect, from terrain and gameplay to story adaptation and mechanics. You have put a lot of passion and effort into making this campaign a standout experience.

I am running into crashes at the custom campaign menu. I even deleted the campaign file and it kept doing it. Only two custom files in there are this and Tides of Darkness, both W3N files. Blizzard also updated WC3 right before I gave this a go. Reinstalled the game, still a bust.

This campaign is pretty cool, even if the voices sometimes feels extremely robotic. (And character mouths sometimes go crazy.)

At a certain point in the campaign, you can farm up to 3000 gold with Pillage and two enemy workers, which combined with tree farming (40413 wood as we speak) gives an enormous edge in most fights.

I love playing hero campaign cause they are easier to follow and just simply easier to pass than normal WCIII gameplay, and this one has upgrades, compagnions and more! (The elementals are also extremely overpowered, but on the other side if you use them you cannot use the spell damage enhancer.)

Found a fix in case anyone else runs into this issue. I deleted my Documents\Warcraft III\Campaigns\ folder and tried again, and now the Custom Campaign menu pulls up without crashing. Also, it might be helpful to not do what I did, and instead, follow the author's instructions in order of operations :wink: namely, update WC3 first -- that might have goofed it up.

I just completed the campaign and it was amazing, I loved it.
This was exactly the type of campaign I expected when I purchased Reforged. The storytelling and cinematics were tremendous.
The only thing I didn't like was the sound of baby Thrall crying. For this sound file, maybe it could have been taken from the Warcraft movie.
I'm looking forward to your future projects.
Thank you very much for your efforts, please keep on it.
