The kingdom of Teredar is in peril. A mysterious plague is spreading throughout the kingdom and hordes of zombies are destroying everything in their path. Take control of a ruler of the kingdom and defend your lands or join the darkness and annihilate all living beings..


It's a 12 players map. 9 players fight to protect their kingdom against 3 zombie players. Units and buildings killed by zombies become zombies. When a human player has no more heroes and capital, he joins the zombies with a unique hero.

You must destroy the 8 capitals of the kingdom.
Each of the 3 zombie players has its own unique hero and can also each have a 2nd unique hero. It is possible to have 3 more heroes in total but it is more difficult and to discover by yourself. Every unit and building you kill turns into a zombie. However, you can also train zombies in your crypts as well as different types of special zombies. Your basic zombies have 5 evolutions to do in your Laboratory. In your Necromancy Pit you can also make special events. Undead heroes revive.

You must defend your capitals during 1 hour.
Each player has his own unique faction. You can recruit units, make upgrades and repair your structures. Focus mainly on your base but don't hesitate to support others if you can. The coal player plays the role of the Protector of the kingdom who can teleport himself everywhere in the map to help players in difficulty; his capital is not an objective for zombies. Human heroes don't revive.








Change camera distance : -cam [number]
Start a vote kick : -kick player number/player color/player name
Send ressources to allies:-give gold/soul [player number(01-21)] [amount]
Take ressources to the players who left:-take gold/soul [player number(01-21)] [amount]
Type "-share [player number(01-21)]" to give your vision and full shared control of your units to an ally. Type "-unshare [player number(01-21)]" to take your control away from an ally.
After 30min, if you are a human player and still alive, you can type "-undead" to give the control of your units to the others humans player and become zombie.
Everyone can activate and deactivate the command "-troll on/off". It only works on the triggering player's team. Also when the command is activated, it can only be deactivated 60 seconds after. When activated, if a unit attacks a friendly unit, his attack is interrupts.
Red or Grey if they are still humans can request bonus (it means that they must both agree):
"-Hard" = 5000 gold per undead player
"-Impossible" = 999999 gold per undead player
If red or grey is not played by a player or became undead, the bonus are directly activated whithout asking to the other player.
Brown and Dark Green have the same system. They can type "-Hard" to provide +2000 gold to each human player.
Type "-add time XX" and if half of the players choose -yes, the indicated time is added to the timer.

The original creators of the map are: Argos, Rex5, Guillimans
I liked the map very much but I found that it lacked a lot of improvements, additions, bug fixes, script and balancing optimization to do and the project was abandoned. So I set out to give the map a second chance. My version series takes as suffix "HEHA" and starts with :
Medieval Zombie Apocalypse HEHA 1.0.
If one of the original developers sees this message, please contact me. I would be glad to discuss it with you. I have no intention of stealing your work and hope that you will understand my simple intentions.
The map only supports classic graphics.

    "If one of the original developers sees this message, please contact me. I would be glad to discuss it with you. I have no intention of stealing your work and hope that you will understand my simple intentions."

    So you haven't tried to contact any of them before editing their map?

    For instance, there are other versions on the site already:
    Medieval Zombie Apocalypse:Wolfblood (two of the authors you've mentioned have released this version)

    Why would yours be better or so different?

    Awaiting Update.

    I tried to contact him but he doesn't seem to be active anymore. I talked to someone who used to play with him once and he told me it wouldn't bother him at all, but it's obviously not enough ^^
    Nevertheless, I still hope to get an answer from Argos!
    Apart from that, I would like to say that the changes I have made since then (31 updates to date) considerably improve the map.
    I also always credit all the developers of this map before me, since the very first version I made.

    1. Why am I obligated to start with cinematic scenes or tutorial? What if I don't want any? Well, at least it doesn't last that much.
    2. So basically Warcraft III spells with changed icons and names.
    3. Even armour and attack icons are changed. Is there any difference between the original game's percentages and this map's?
    4. Spells like Rain of Chaos are heavily imbalanced compared to others. Also, the spell hasn't got its proper position when you learn it. It comes first instead of second as in the learn ability menu.
    5. Wolf Guards have hero glow but are units. The problem also is that they do not have a decay animation and the body will remain on the battlefield for a long time. Same: Paladin, possibly others.
    6. Wolf Elder looks alike. It's pretty confusing.
    7. Holy Burst=Shockwave.
    8. There's a strange issue when hovering over the Priest:
    9. Stronger Construction (Ballista) should be a passive ability. It has an active ability icon. You can make it look passive with this: Button Manager v1.8.2 Same with Armour of Fate and probably others (+Mage Barrage, Gunspray etc.). This spell also has issues with its description in the learn ability menu.
    10. Confusing to have units as buildings training units.
    Generally, it doesn't look like a bad map. Could be fun with full house.

    Since, it's a legacy map, it's OK as long as the original authors don't ask for it to be taken down.

    Hello, thanks for your precious advice and remarks, I've taken into account several of them in the 1.32 version if you're interested:

    1. Now it's a vote at the beginning of the game between -tuto, -cinematic or -skip (starts immediately the game without the cinematic). The game automatically starts with the cinematic after 20 seconds if there are no votes.
    2. The map has no intention of inventing new skills that are completely unique on Warcraft 3. On the contrary I want to stay as close as possible to warcraft 3 so as not to lose the player in this map already complicated enough ^^
    3. No it's the same stats/game's percentages in the map. Some armour and attack icons are changed to fit more in the map. I still put some of them back by default.
    4. The spell Rain of Chaos is very powerful indeed but it's not imbalanced at all. Each player have his specialities and his role in the map and trust me I played the map many many times and it's totally balanced. ^^ Also I fixed the spell's icon position.
    5. Wolf Elder, Wolf Guard, Paladin, Lightward Paladin and Thane no longer have a hero glow. I have tested and I see it in all the games I do, all the units have a decay animation and really none of them have the problem you're talking about.
    6. Cloaked Stranger and Buildings which spawn x10 army no longer have any animations so that we can understand that they are not units. They are now completely immobile.
    7. I changed the spell's name: Now it's called "Holy Shockwave".
    8. Indeed. I try several things but the issue remains :( But I noticed that it appears only at a specific point of the priest'icon, absolutely not everywhere on the icon.
    9. Every icons has been updated to fit more with their purpose and to facilitate understanding. I made what you said with Button Manager v1.8.2 and now all the icons are perfect. Thanks for the very useful tool ^^
    10. I solved the problem in the sixth point.

    Is it because of a hidden ability or something like that? You can hide it with triggers now and don't have to set its positions with negative numbers (e.g. X:-2, Y:-1).
    The idea was that they are the same spell but just have different names. It's lacklustre.
    Have nothing against fitting them to the theme but it's confusing when you see them the first time if you don't know the values since you can't see them in numbers, they're left with words as in the original game.

    1) Voting System: Voting system is broken. Yes, this is a critical issue. If there is a tie, nothing happens. There simply is no trigger to continue the game. I believe this should be an easy fix. Please do hotfix and release a new version with a better vote system.

    Suggestion for vote system: Make people choose by clicking instead of typing. More people would be participating in the vote that way. When there is a tie, just show the tutorial.

    2) Spider Event Trigger: I'm not entirely sure what's causing the problem, but spider event sometimes isn't triggered and everyone gets desyncd. Never had such a problem on version 1.30.

    3) Flesh Giant: Currently two major issues with Flesh Giant.
    a. Units ignore Flesh Giant because of its armor type. People have to manually click Flesh Giant to target it if there are other units around.
    b. Flesh Giant being able to attack some of the turrets from down hill. This is rather a terrain issue. There are several towers that could be hit by Flesh Giant: Teal's tower at the ramp on the main castle, Purple's tower next to the main gate.

    Balance Issues
    1) Brown being too overpowered with early level 6 Death Knight rush. 4 death knights and hounds give Brown little too much power boost compared to other factions. Looking at same undead, DG's base hero is trash compared to Brown.
    2) Drain Life for zombies should have a timer for its first use. At the moment, what Brown does is farm creeps, pool gold with DG to upgrade to tier2 while ignoring Dwarves and Bulwark. After that, they just get rid of tier1 zombies to deny XP/Gold for both Dwarves and Bulwark. Yes, it is effective but honestly much less fun for both Dwarves and Bulwark. I must say it's rather abuse of the system than strategy. In order to prevent such thing from happening, you could simply get rid of tier1 zombie removal or have a timer to it so that players cannot abuse it.
    Suggestion 1: Have a timer to Tier1 zombie removal.
    Suggestion 2: Make first wave of zombies uncontrollable, meaning, make them creeps just like orcs but rushing towards each base.
    3) Cannon Tower (Dwarven Turret): I don't even feel like upgrading the turret when I play Dwarf. This turret is an utter garbage. Please change it or buff the damage.
    4) Holy Drain (A skill acquired at lv6 for certain heroes): This locust swarm based skill needs a serious rework or buff at the moment. Considering the skill is an ultimate, it is hardly noticeable and when I actually tested it out, it did not even kill one Tier 1 zombie. (Did about 700 damage total)
    5) Dwarven Rifleman: Dwarven Rifleman has 700 range and very slow attack speed, while damage is similar to Axe Thrower (Much lower DPS right now).
    Suggestion: Increase range, damage, or attack speed. It's just the worst ranged unit out there for now.

    My opinion based on the latest patch note (I haven't tried 1.33 yet, only 1.32)
    1) Adding gold value to the base is a good idea, but they should never be the same value. First, it's very unlikely for each color to defend non-important base. Second, the importance of each building is completely different. There simply is no merit to defend the other base. Third, losing 500 gold income early on is very critical, and 0 gold without base is rather brutal.

    Question: Are you trying to nerf human? If that's the case, how would you like to nerf it? These changes seem very radical.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and precise remarks! It's good to see that people are interested in the map and are taking the time to make a constructive feedback.
    I am active and open to any suggestions so don't hesitate to contact me, the versions can be released very quickly.
    I have corrected some of the things you pointed out and agree with some of your comments.
    I invite you to read the changelog of version 1.34 and then test it! ^^
    Have fun!
    Don't hesitate to leave a note on the map too ^^

    Version 1.34:
    - The voting system at the beginning of the game has been improved, it is no longer possible for it to remain blocked: in case of a tie between "-tuto" and "-cinematic" or "-skip", the tutorials will start. In case of a tie between "-cinematic" and "-skip", the cinematic will start.
    - The secret quest for yellow can no longer be glitched with abilities like "Blink".
    - Flesh Giants no longer have fortified armor and can therefore be automatically attacked by units. On the other hand, they gain +2 armor.
    - The 3 teal (brown) towers that could be attacked by a Flesh Giant from below were slightly moved to avoid this.
    - Dwarven Rifleman has been improved: range (750->1200), base damage (50->65).
    - Drain life for zombies now last 30 seconds instead of 5 seconds and Drain life for Hounds, Lichs and Flesh Giants last 60 seconds instead of 5 seconds.
    - "Holy Drain" spell is now much more powerful.
    - The Cannon Tower has been improved: life (2000->3500), base damage (60->110).
    - "Twilight" spell which summons Death Knights now summons 2 Death Knights instead of 4.
    - Brown zombie player obtains 6 Hounds instead of 12 when he obtains his 2nd hero Night Eyes.
    - Income per important building has been redistributed, giving less importance to small bases for income.

    Just discovered this one on bnet and instantly got addicted to it. Great concept, good balancing and a lot of detail. Very cool viarity on units and events.
    It is a little bit like eras zombie invasion but actually done right.
    Here some criticisms and recommendations:
    1) Hero abilities could need some work. Some of them are much stronger then others e.g. frostnova is stronger than chainlightning on the melee wizard hero.
    2) Team colours of red and dark red are too similiar. It often gets confusing. Also it is weird in the game lobby since teal is not actually teal.
    3) Human heroes have brutally strong spells but die very quick. This leads to melee heroes beeing not even used in battle and them standing around for some time.
    I would recomend: give melee heroes about double HP or give them some escape mechanism like an ability or an item.
    4) It would be nice if you could indicate which factions is which in the lobby. This could be done by creating a Team for each human player which are titled with the faction name.
    Also an difficulty indicator for the different slots would be neat.

    But everything else is very nice! Keep up the good work!

    I like the new changes. And the new village looks good. Haven't figured out what it does though..

    The fact this map is continuing to be worked on again is nice.

    I've liked the recent changes in balancing terms.

    Just came back to the game after like 10 year to play some old school cotum maps: Hero Sieg, Helms Deep, Racoon City, etc. Found this map and been playing it non-stop for over a week. The 8 human and dwarf faction are have a very uniqe gameplay. I tried out all of them and i still have not figured out all their tricks. The undead are the same except the heroes but have very different objectives. The game feels very different every time as you play with different people and have different outcomes. I think i will be coming back for a long time. Especially as it has regular updates.

    I really love the map, both the old and this map as well. But I really can't find players to play with (since I mostly play with a small group of friends only). This may not be easy but can you add AI players?

    I could but we already discussed it many times with the community and it would be completely unnecessary. The work would be really too much high for what it will give. Just a constant feed, the AI will never have the level of a real player. I know it could be a bit fun if you want to play it solo or just few people but as I said before, it's too much work what it is. Also I don't judge you if you only want to play with friends but if you need players you should know that we have a discord server and a large community who hosts the map very often. You can almost always have a lobby at any times on Warcraft 3.

    Last thing: Don't hesitate to rate the map : )

    Don't worry. It just a suggestion/selfish idea. Your map/work is great. I will rate the map to 5 :)

    You've seemed to have put a lot of effort into the map. Fresh blood and a new set of eyes have improved the map, where I as the previous editor lost my focussed down the line. Kudos on keeping it going.

    There is a discord for the community with people ready to play with you and give you some pro tips. You can exchange about your feedback there.
    Game is still worked on, i didn't crash a single time using classic graphic.
