Warcraft 3 Podcast & Discussions


Hello Hive, I'm Carson, otherwise known as BladeMasterRUSH, since the announcement of Warcraft 3 Reforged I have become a content creator in the WC3 community as a streamer and mapmaker. I've been playing Warcraft 3 on and off since it came out, and found myself back playing customs regularly about a year and a half ago. Now I edit the RTS custom map 'War in the Plaguelands', which I habitually edit on my Twitch, play a variety of custom games for my community, and recently I've been getting into melee. A bit more about the offline me, I have a wonderful parrot (Green Cheek Conure) appropriately named Grommash, and dabble in DJing/electronic music... used to be a big concert-goer before the pandemic! While I don't post much, thanks to you guys I've been able to fix many bugs in my map sifting through threads dating back a decade... and browsing the model section is one of my guilty pleasures

In the summer I had the idea to start a podcast channel, after being inspired by Joe Rogan, and started by inviting some of my friends from the Warcraft 3 community such as Zoomsf and iNSUPERABLE. I've been fortunate enough to interview legends from all walks of Warcraft 3 ranging from customs streamers like Wtii to the legendary Neo from Back2Warcraft, not to mention talking to fantastic map developers such as Retera, InsaneMonster, ShadiHD and more. My goal is to foster a platform where members of the Warcraft 3 community can tell their story, and to show off a more personal side to people that we know so well. Alongside the Warcraft 3 podcasts, I've started to dabble in more vlog content on the BladeMasterRUSH show channel talking about politics or interviewing Twitch streamers. You can find all podcasts episodes at that channel, and sometime in the future on podcast platforms such as Spotify and Apple. I hope you enjoy the interviews and look forward to seeing what you guys think in the comments!

Hm that's intriguing, will look into these.

edit: Watched them both, some things on that:

I really didn't know about gui's intricate limitations LordDamage pointed out.
Been following Retera for quite some time now, always knew he might apply for a comedian role.

Retera's interview was really insightful, and it's cool to hear someone still passionate about Warcraft 3 in this day and age. The discussion on WC3's coding and its inner workings was also really interesting considering I know next to nothing about that sort of stuff. I also really appreciated that despite the negativity surround Reforged, Retera seems like an overall positive dude. Good stuff! :peasant-bowing:

Hey guys thanks for the kind words, glad you are enjoying watching them as much as I am making them! I have posted many on my channel with non-mapmakers such as Wtii, Vimp, Insup and Neo if you are curious to hear the 'Warcraft Elite' complain about Reforged, but otherwise I've posted two more podcasts that might spark your interest:

Episode 28: The Wolf Pack Special (the one and only SAKEN)

Episode 29: W3Champions (w/ developer Cepheid)

I'll come back and edit the original to be more proper tomorrow...


Good stuff! Been a friend of Retera for a while, and I appreciate that, despite some of his crazier content, you kept things respectful while also allowing him to really dive into some deep stuff. : )
Retera is my favorite content creator.

Great interviews! Keep up the good work! @Ralle I think we can do more for this guy than just a sticky thread. Lets talk more about this on our next meeting.

Also @BladeMasterRUSH you should consider adding all your interview videos to your first post and perhaps work on the formatting a bit. Maybe include some information or screenshots.
