    A couple of years ago I was looking at some concept art of Warcraft 3 (roc + tht) on google images. Many images of landscapes and maps cought my eye so I visited site of image and found the Hive Workshop. I started looking around the site and realised there was so much more to Warcraft than I thought. I started playing around on the World Editor and now I constantly check in on the Hive.

    I believe it was when I searched "warcraft 3 maps" on Google. That was a long long time before I created an account here.

    wc3sear.ch was my go to place for resources. Then when I became more interested in modding, as opposed to just playing around I made an account on wc3sear.ch (about 3 months or so after first finding it).

    I stuck around wc3sear.ch, not really engaging much with the community and mostly just being background - followed the drama on the sideline, with the troubling post from Darky about server space, darky missing, VG stepping up to inform users, Hive helping out, and finally Hive absorbing wc3sear into itself. I don't believe I made an account immediately after that, I think I waited around until I there was no way to use wc3sear anymore and then I created an account on Hive.
    What I found was a place with a community that was great to engage with, lots of stuff to do and Hive took up most of my free time. It followed me through my school years, was the deciding factor for my university degree and even now where the new site layout, and my extended absence from it has made things confusing, it still holds a truly unique place in my life that no other site can replicate.

    So although wc3sear was the reason I noticed it, I firmly believe that Hiveworkshop found us, changed our lives and I am so glad to see that it is still going strong.
    Although every old member missing is a source of sadness. I am glad that I got the chance to enjoy their conversations and humour. Now I have little to no idea what most of them are doing or how they are doing.
    - Just hope that they are all well and enjoying life - perhaps still making use of what they learned at Hive.

    Found out about it a long, long time ago when I was in high school and internet cafes were still a thing. It was after the Frozen Throne was released. My friends and I would go every Friday evening to a local internet cafe and play games like Medal of Honor Allied Assault, Aliens vs Predator 2, Soldier of Fortune II Double Helix and - obviously - Warcraft 3. There were some custom TD maps we kept playing and we found out they were from Hive. I kept going around in circles ever since. I re-joined the community recently because I had some free time on my hands and I wanted to try out some of the custom campaigns I never got to play.

    I believe it was searching for map making help long, long ago. Holy shit I've been on this site for a decade now.

    I don't know, it was so long ago. What I find funny though is that one day I decided to start posting here to ask some questions I had about my map, and remembered that I actually made an account here long time ago. Going through my post history, my first two posts were made in 2008 and the third only in 2014. Just some random info.

    How do you think I feel when looking back? :smile: But yea, time flies darn fast and while it contains both some amazing events, it does also go to fast. So much I believed to have done by now (when I joined) never happened, and other stuff did.

    Beign a person of few words isn't bad. Just being a passive reader can be helpful. Glad to see that it did catch more interest efter 2014 then :grin:

    There's so many different maps and other things that I wanted to do since I joined but I never ended up doing. Although I'm happy that I've been involved in the Wacraft III community for as long as I have.
