    Just watched the video. Ultimately, it's just a map with a bunch of World of Warcraft exported models and textures. Accompanied by, what looks like, some decent GUI triggers. The terrain isn't that great though because the scale of the objects is incorrect (too small) and don't align with the real terrain in the actual World of Warcraft. A good start I suppose, but dancing WoW characters doesn't make the map a WoW conversion.

    Don't you fucking get it???

    Craka has no release date, because he isn't doing this map as a job that needs to get finished just because some guys like you want it to! HE IS DOING IT FOR FUN!
    Do you get it? He can't give you one, and he said that multiple times.

    Woah there, comon just calm down. No need to get angry over nothing you two. It is just that Craka is perferring Ardent Heroes over Wc3:WoW due to multiple reasons.

    One of which is the fact that we are actually working on Ardent Heroes, we have a team that is diligently working, and we can safely say that we have are having a LOT of progress we just recently had a closed moderator only test of some of the talents, and it worked beautifully.

    You can have the most popular project in the world, if you have no workers, it will just stay in pre-production. What would be the point if you can't get any workers?

    I remember reading that some of Craka's team left, which were the coders and stuff I think?

    Look, lowe257, he's still looking for some new members.
    So what? If he loses a very skilled vJASSer he can just replace it with an average JASSer? No, he needs a very skilled team because it's the PROJECT OF THE YEAR. People expect lots of work on it to be done, and to have a great output of the game. This isn't a mod that is to be crappy and barely has any effort.

    And besides, he's only working on Ardent Heroes until he can find more members and he's only using it as a rest from WCIII:WoW. So back off and let him do what he wants, all you should care about is actually playing it, like the rest of us. If you want to play it now, too bad, because you have to wait. So be patient, and let the man do what he wants.

    I'm guessing that that settles this problem.

    I'm almost positive I've said this before, but it was probably a while ago. And when there's long gaps between my appearances and announcements on the forum, repetition helps keep you all updated on the mod's status and whether our plans have changed or not.

    The most frequently asked question right now is: "Has the project died?"

    It seems that way. I've lost a lot of interest in the mod, despite how much I and the other modders put into it, but I would like to release something that isn't just terrain. But so far, that's all it is. Triggerless maps with some pretty WIP landscapes. Most of which are old maps and haven't been redone by me yet.

    The reason for my inactivity is lack of interest due to the WarCraft III editor crashing so much. I've lost a lot of progress --- probably over 30 times --- and it can really discourage you when it happens repeatedly. Even though I have set the auto-save every 5 minutes, even then, it can still be extremely frustrating and set you back. If this seems silly to get worked up over to you, then I guess it's something you'd have to experience for yourself to understand.

    However, I will not let my intolerance overcome my ambition to get something with this mod done and ready for you guys to enjoy. So I do plan to continue this mod, just not yet. Why you ask?

    Because Ardent Heroes is currently more fun to work on. It's a more unique idea, much more flexibility with what we can add and throw out, and it also doesn't currently require a significant amount of terrain and level design work. While Wc3:WoW could certainly appeal to more WarCraft III players, it's a fun idea (for us who are working on it and testing it, at least) to work on an RPG that may or may not potentially compete against the other great RPGs created for WarCraft III over the years.

    Sorry that there's no real good news to report. But at least I managed to keep it optimistic! :grin:

    [EDIT]
    [Unrelated Note] I've decided to gradually change my alias to Macrobius since it's not as offensive and demeaning as "Craka_J." It also sounds cooler too.

    One thing is for sure, this mod will be epic and will advertise from it self! I mean people will give the link to other people if they are happy and so on. Thats what I think will happen about the advertising part, so no need to waste time to do it by your self.

    Wc3:WoW and Ardent Heroes are both RPGs.
