    Hi all! I'd like to officially announce the start of the 2P campaign for Warcraft Reforged with the uploading of the first map. There's a lot of work to be done, but I've recently cut my hours at work to free up time to follow my passions. So I hope that we'll get to completion.

    Reforged: Whats different?
    - The insane difficulty will be looked at in detail to make improvements to balance. I would like to make a genuinely challenging difficulty with exciting boss fights and encounters. Perhaps something closer to what we were hoping when we heard about a "new campaign".
    - The missions; the culling, fall of silvermoon and the siege of dalaran maps which have been largely revamped by blizzard and will be redone.
    - The save/load codes are saved to file, like a lot of maps do these days, making it easier to transfer data between maps.
    - Some of the spells for the side heroes will be re-evaluated to see if they can be made more interesting.
    - You can stack potions/scrolls into a single inventory slot.
    - There are some more subtle changes such as renaming of factions and units.
    - The blizzard campaign adds some improvements to sounds and unit animations during cinematics, but I largely won't be focusing on these.

    The Discord - link
    Here i'll be writing most of my thoughts for development and bug tracking. Please join if you'd like to be part of the discussion and help with the testing / bug tracking.

    The Patreon - link
    If you've enjoyed my maps and would like to see the project completed, please support the project with as much or little as much as you like. ($3 suggestion)
    It takes a huge amount of effort to process all of the maps to a good quality, I've recently cut my hours at my job so I can pursue my passions. Please help to convince me that this wasn't all a really stupid idea.

    Patreons will receive the following privileges:
    - they will be able to vote on what work is prioritised and other changes to the campaign
    - they will receive early access to the maps
    - future custom chapters are likely to be patreon-access only
    - a special tag on the discord:
    - significant contributors will be mentioned in the credits at the end of each campaign

    Hi The Spoon !
    I'm very glad to see that you're willing to continue on this project !
    Maybe you'll be able to give us what the community expected to find in this reforged edition of Warcraft.

    You've done an amazing job so far !
    I'll be following your work closely, and I hope to continue enjoying your creations !
