Maiev and her watchers arrived in the ruins of the orcish homeworld, Draenor. They soon discovered that Illidan had come alone, thus the recapture proved to be fairly easy.

Then the naga had arrived on Outland, and they had brought new allies: the same blood elves that Maiev had helped before. Maiev and her soldiers fought the naga and their traitorous elven friends, but the new army outnumbered hers, and eventually she was defeated. The naga and blood elves recaptured Illidan and freed him. Upon the warden's final moments, Illidan decided to imprison her instead.

Soon after that, Maiev would be contacted by Akama, unsatisfied by not being given the Black Temple as promised and the wary Maiev agreed to enter a partnership and vowed to see Illidan dead.

    @MogulKahn: There is a difference between wanting something to suceed and wanting something in a very special style.

    Look, we all know that you have a very classic idea what a campaign should be like - and there is nothing wrong about that - but this is not your campaign, it's Sclammerz'.
    It's HIS decision how to design the missions, the gameplay, the units, the spells, everything. His decision alone.

    Look, I want to believe that you're meaning it all a good way and are just having problems with articulating your thoughts as suggestions instead of sounding offensive and demanding.
    You really have to work on that, else your suggestions will always be looked at as trolling or simply insulting ranting.
    I think neither you nor others want that. ;)


    Also, your question regarding if I had "ever played WC3 campaigns" is kinda ridiculous, you should actually know better than saying such things...

    emm sorry for intruding,I think the problem is that since tomoraider campaigns,there has been no other campaign related with the lore after of frozen throne,maybe is because many want a warcraft 4 ( blizzard comes saying he would one do but always leaves us nothing :mad:),that is why this campaign has many expectations,as I said I really liked and that is only the first version :)

    Well, I have been following this campaign since beginning, and I know he wants to make this campaign as much WC3-like as he can. That is why I am "ranting" here..

    And also, I have to say, but I never understood that demanding thing. So I am demanding if I am saying what should be fixed to make this map more enjoyable? You can consider me as a beta tester, finding mistakes and sharing them with creator so he can fix them. I can't see anything offending in my posts about this campaign, only good intentions. As I said in one of my posts here. First tomorider campaign was awful, and you can't deny it. And now? Masterpiece. How? Well, patch after patch campaign was better and better. It is really hard, if not impossible to make perfect campaign from first try. You need to get there. And I am trying to help him to get there faster.

    And I know that you made few campaigns, but your campaigns had no connection with WC3, so that is why I never said anything about it or criticize it..

    Wow. Just missed those comments, I wonder Hive didn't alerted me that someone posted some comments. Anyway about that "Hero level up faster" I can try to fix it but I don't really see the problem. You wouldn't get higher than that since it's the max level for that chapter.

    I'm at mission 4 part 2 and I'm really liking it so far!

    As of now I have only two things I find a bit... unsettling:
    1) The enemy heroes level up fighting me. This is generally not supposed to happen in campaign maps, is nothing game-breaking, but it feels odd at times, to see some Brutish orc passing from level 6 to 7 :)
    2) During the timed cave mission with Maiev, when the firelord appears, the scene with Mannoroth evil laugh is well done, but it takes away a VERY good chunk of seconds, and if you are a bit late for dungeon crawling you risk ending up dead because of it. Maybe it would be better to stop the clock like during the riddles?

    Very nice campaign, good to see you complete it and keep fixing the bugs.

    I like the story and the gameplay so far, but just one thing I feel a little odd...Maiev's second spell just keep spawning spirits but I don't think they are always needed... Would you consider fixing this spell or just replace it with another spell like Blink in your next update? Now this Maiev is just too... violent because most spells are damage boost :) Blink should be Warden's typical spell.

    Giving suggestions is great, Mogul, but I have to admit that I cringed at nearly every one of your comments on this thread. You're not suggesting, you're coming off as demanding. It's not a matter of saying what you think would make the campaign better, it's HOW you say it. You have to be more... "diplomatic" about how you go about these sorts of comments. Saying "This is awful and you NEED to make so and so changes" is just rude and trolly. It's just considered better etiquette to word them a little more politely like "I personally think this would be better if you did so and so." You need to go in with the understanding that this is the creative work of someone's hard labor and extensive amount of time. Judging my your earlier comment saying "If I were a map maker," I assume that means you are, indeed, NOT a map maker, yes?

    With that in mind, do you think you can begin to understand the sheer amount of effort that goes into building these sorts of campaigns over so much time? Years, in the case of people like Tomoraider? Imagine for just a moment that you put years of effort into something like... I don't know. An art project, for example. You made a great big sculpture the way you liked it and decided to put it on display. Sure, you would like people to give their suggestions on what you think could be better, but don't you think someone coming up and saying 'Ugh, this part of the sculpture is just awful. You need to go back and redo what probably took you months of work because -I- don't like it and -i- apparently speak for everyone who sees your sculpture, even though many people are arguing that it's good the way it is.' Because that's honestly how you come off, sometimes, and I like to think that's not your intention. Constructive criticism is written in a way that it doesn't offend or discourage, and is usually offered as an opinion rather than fact. Just because you think it needs to be closer to the classical structure of WarIII campaigns doesn't necessarily mean everyone else does. Not every campaign needs to be done in that style, or Tomoraider's style for that matter! (And I am a HUGE fan of Tomoraider's works, btw) Can you at least kind of see what we're trying to tell you here?



    All that aside, I haven't tried the campaign out quite yet, but I will do so fairly soon and offer my own opinions on it (hopefully) pretty soon. ^^ Looks pretty fun, just from the previews and comments!

    That's what I said :)


    Also, I've seen a couple of mispellings on Akama's Ashtongue tribe: sometimes (especially in the first 3 missions) they are spelled as AshtoUnge, even on the players screen. And map 6 introduction has a "just" that should not be there.

    I'm cheating a bit to reach the end of the game without too much effort, but I need to ask: isn't the map 4, part 2 a bit too difficult, with 4 heroes constantly attacking you? I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to do it, without cheats, but maybe I'm just bad :p:D

    Oh, and when we are defending of Shattrath city the enemies attack in a strange way: Naga were constantly attacking my Draenei allies, while Illidan attacked Maiev, but Kael blood elves attacked my elven allies only three times in all 30 minutes of play, and always without Kael.

    I have to admit that I'm missing Maiev's blink spell, but understand that adding it back could lead to strange things in some maps, where it may be not supposed to be present, and her actual powers are very good. I still like it!:psmile:

    Well, did my first play. I didn't fought all secrets and maybe loss some items that could balance the game in my favor.

    Hero missions, not much to say Maiev and Akama stuns help greatly to turn the fights in your favor. Lightning Diamond is a big plus because the high Hp pool of Orcs and Naga units. Timing stuns make the survival of the normal units a lot easier.

    Siege missions, i'm not the fastest man in micro, so for me is a grinder until i can amass a critical number of Priestess and Huntress to soak damage 6 + 6 , and a dozen of Archers to do support damage. Using Moonshield and Roar are the turning points.

    For the other two new units i didn't use the Warden and Battle Maiden much, only the ones at the start of the missions. Their seal of Shadows and the Starbolt are their main plus, so for someone with better micro those units might be a blessing, but at least for me their utility get lost in the shuffle.

    The Dreadwing as a heavy flyer isn't that impressive, can't explain well why, migh be that taking my time in combat to use the Acid Bomb isn't that important compared to activate Acid Rage, and move when Hp is going low.

    The battle with Illidan. I understand the WoW experience feeling going in that battle, but it was nearly imposible to me to keep the army alive enough to make a difference, Seal of Shadow helped with Illidan and the Firelords, but the numbers from the portals killed my army and my Heros. In the end they weren't nothing so the money in that map was only for Hero ress, don't known if that is ideal for the last fight.


    It was a fun experience and not much rage inducing bugs, that is always a plus. Great job for that.

    Use Jdownloader or similar to download the map, for some reason direct downloads from Hive using Firefox ends corrupted or failed.

    Select the button download and use copy link route option.

    I'm just now starting the campaign (third try at the first mission because I'm too lazy to actually pay attention to what I'm doing), and so far I'm liking the design of it. Hopefully I will have the time and patience to get farther in the next week or so and have some more meaningful commentary for you. However, I wanted to go ahead and point out a glitch I noticed. When I tried to skip the opening cinematic in Mission 1, the cinematic dialogue and camera triggers kept firing even after cinematic mode itself turned off, so I couldn't really do anything and had to wait for the cinematic dialogue and stuff to finish before I could proceed. It personally doesn't bother me that much, but I can imagine it might frustrate some players, and since it's a pretty simple glitch to fix, I thought I'd point it out. There's a tutorial on the site somewhere that explains how to do it more precisely than I could, and I will go look for it in a few minutes so I can post a link, but basically it's just spamming If/Then/Else actions that check if someone's skipped the cinematic (which you should just be able to use a boolean for) and, if so, skip the remaining actions of the trigger.

    Here's the tutorial link, if you need it. It's certainly helped me. http://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/making-cinematics-skippable.190432/

    Actually I'm using similar triggers to that.

    I got to say chapter 4 the maiev part was really hard, i had to use cheats to beat the final boss, also, chapter 5 is also quite hard, as there r 5 bases attacking u almost constantly, and you have a timed mission to save the general which makes it even harder, could you pls either decrease the frequency of waves, or remove the timing part, cause its not ez in 15 min to fend off like 5 attack waves and build a high population army, especially after you just destroyed 1 base.

    Finished entire campaign few days ago. And I have to admit that I really enjoyed it. You could make 1 map when you could control Shatar (I mean with gold mine etc just becuase i really like them XD). But in my opinion whole game difficulty was preety good. It's somethimes hard but never too hard at least for me. Made it all without cheats. Once again I thank you for that campiagn and I'm hoping you will create more :)

    Okay, so I took a peek at your skipping cinematic system, and the reason I had the problem I did was because it only checked conditions after the actual wait functions. There are several times where you use transmissions as waits instead, and you don't check the conditions between them.
    • IntroCine
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • blah blah blah... skipping down a little...
        • If (IntroSkip Equal to True) then do (Skip remaining actions) else do (Do nothing)
        • Cinematic - Fade out over 2.00 seconds using texture Black Mask and color (0.00%, 0.00%, 0.00%) with 0.00% transparency
        • Wait 2.00 seconds
        • If (IntroSkip Equal to True) then do (Skip remaining actions) else do (Do nothing)
        • ---Here the check is performed correctly: directly after a wait.---
        • Camera - Apply Camera 005 <gen> for Player 2 (Blue) over 0.00 seconds
        • Unit - Make Stalker 0029 <gen> face Akama 0097 <gen> over 0.00 seconds
        • Cinematic - Fade in over 2.00 seconds using texture White Mask and color (0.00%, 0.00%, 0.00%) with 0.00% transparency
        • Camera - Apply Camera 004 <gen> for Player 2 (Blue) over 20.00 seconds
        • Cinematic - Send transmission to (All players) from Stalker 0029 <gen> named Broken Draenei: Play No sound and display Akama, I bring grav.... Modify duration: Set to 5.00 seconds and Wait
        • ---But you also need one here.---
        • Cinematic - Send transmission to (All players) from Akama 0097 <gen> named Akama: Play No sound and display Speak.. Modify duration: Set to 2.00 seconds and Wait
        • ---And here.---
        • Cinematic - Send transmission to (All players) from Stalker 0029 <gen> named Broken Draenei: Play No sound and display The Sha'tar already.... Modify duration: Set to 7.00 seconds and Wait
        • ---And here.---
        • Cinematic - Send transmission to (All players) from Akama 0097 <gen> named Akama: Play No sound and display I doubt they can ha.... Modify duration: Set to 8.00 seconds and Wait
        • ---etc.---
        • Unit - Order Akama 0097 <gen> to Move To (Center of Region 001 <gen>)
        • Camera - Apply Camera 007 <gen> for Player 2 (Blue) over 0.00 seconds
        • Wait 2.00 seconds
        • If (IntroSkip Equal to True) then do (Skip remaining actions) else do (Do nothing)
        • Camera - Apply Camera 006 <gen> for Player 2 (Blue) over 20.00 seconds


    ... so if I try to skip the cinematic sometime during that section of dialogue, the next few lines of dialogue plus the Camera007 pan will still fire.
