Warcraft Legacies 1.0

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Warcraft Legacies
Warcraft Legacies is a Control Point based grand strategy in which each player takes control of one of the driving forces in the Warcraft storyline, from the beginning of Reign of Chaos to the end of The Frozen Throne and further into World of Warcraft Storylines.

Active Community
We have an active community of regular players who regularly host both public. We can be found here: Join the Warcraft Legacies Discord Server!.

Economy
The game starts with players mining from a starting goldmine to kickstart their economy. Then, income is gained automatically over time by maintaining ownership over Control Points. Expand your dominion quickly to secure a strong economy! Many factions have unique economy systems like the Twilight Hammer and the Bilgewater Cartel.

Quests
Quests simulate the events of the Warcraft story in a competitive sandbox environment. Unleash the undead plague as the Scourge, summon the Burning Legion from the broken world of Argus, or don the terrible Crown of Domination as Arthas Menethil. Every faction has unique quests to shape their way through the story of Warcraft and alternate timelines.

Artifacts
Many artifacts from the Warcraft universe can be acquired to give your heroes an edge; Thrall and his mighty Doomhammer , the fabled Book of Medivh can be found in the Dalaran Dungeons, and those powerful enough to do so can retrieve the Eye of Sargeras itself from his Tomb.

Leaver System
Allies leaving is not unduly punishing. When an ally leaves the game, his remaining teammates take equal shares of his units, gold, lumber, and hero experience. His unique units and heroes are refunded and that gold is taken as well, resulting in a simple, clean gameplay experience.

Dynamic Sound Design
The whole map is divided into regions with unique sound ambiances to create a dynamic soundscape of the world. Every faction also has a unique music theme edited from World of Warcraft that will play when their main event happens, adding to the musical diversity of Warcraft.

Take control of one of the primary forces in the Warcraft storyline, each with their own tech-tree, starting position, events, and heroes. Experience a radically different gameplay experience each time you play a new faction!

Burning Legion Team

Scourge

Play as the Lich King controlling vast hordes of Undead in Icecrown, preparing for the Plague that will ultimately tear apart the North Alliance.

Burning Legion
Control the Dreadlords Mal'ganis and Tichondrious in the broken world Argus as they lead a small force of Demons in their quest to bring the full might of the Legion to Azeroth.

Forsaken
Start as the secretive Cult of the Damned, maneuver your way through the Third war until the time comes for the Forsaken to rise up.


Fel Horde
Rule the corrupted Fel Horde with an iron fist as the brutal Pit Lord, Magtheridon. Secure the untamed regions of Outland as you expand outward through the Dark Portal, shattering entire civilizations in your relentless onslaught.

Quel'thalas

Scarlet Crusade
From the humble peasants of Lordaeron, slowly build up your forces to defend your lands and support the Alliance. The crusade will soon enough unleash and purge any opposing force.

Exodar
Fight for survival as the exiled Draenei. You start in Draenor, hopelessly outmatched by the Fel Horde. Survive long enough to escape through the Exodar ship and rebuild in Azeroth.

Seems pretty neat. Some places seem a bit too cramped, islands included. Also, very reliant on Warcraft III original material. Approved. If you want more reviews, you should participate in the The Grand Review Exchange! R U L E S Site Rules Map...

Warcraft Legacies is an incredible successor to the legacy of Azeroth Wars. It captures the essence of what people loved about the map in the first place, while adding even more factions, lore, interesting mechanics and events from the Warcraft franchise, with fantastic polish on top of it all despite the complexity of all the intersecting systems and what must be an absolutely massive amount of object data.

Any permission from the old authors to edit this and upload it here?
Of course! Augur has long left the community and passed the old map, Azeroth Wars. Eagleman, as you can see from his comment here, also passed the map a long time ago to other editors.
I myself have been the lead editor of Azeroth Wars Legacy Reborn and then Azeroth Wars Reforged for the past 5 years before i started working on this project, as you can see here! Azeroth Wars Reforged

Sweet. Just post the transition stuff in the map thread description with all the necessary links, please. That way, there will be no issues with tracking permission(s) and such.

ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
  • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
  • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
  • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

Not sure if this is the newest version of this map but can we please have Satyrs or Mogu as the 24th playable race? If you choose Satyrs as the 24th race they could easily start as part of the Burning Legion team lead by Prince Xavalis, Xalan or Peroth'arn and be focused mostly on Kalimdor while having bases in Northrend and the Broken Isles if you decide to update the Island to have Val'sharah and such while also having paths to free Xavius to become mostly Nightmare to join the Old Gods team and gain Il'gynoth or become Redeemed and join the Night Elves team lead by Avrus or possibly even join the Illidari team lead by Zandras. While if you choose the Mogu as the 24th race you'll have to somehow add Pandaria and they could have it so that the Zandalari is their ally led by Zul at the start instead of the Horde which could lead to some interesting new team gameplay but just make it so the Zandalari can be betrayed by the Mogu if you so choose then they can join the Horde team with Rastakhan or Talanji leading them or you can also make it so that the Mogu can kill Lei Shen the Thunder King and have the Rajani take over lead by Qian so they can join the Horde with the Zandalari or lastly you can make them become the Zian-Ti possibly lead by Monara so they can join the Scourge team.

Also if you fix the Broken Isles you can give the High/Blood Elves players and Tauren players new allies to claim such as the Nightborne and Highmountain Tauren with the Stonedark Drogbar or maybe even some Emerald Dream units help for the Night Elven players while also giving the Dalaran players a new place to retreat to if need be.

A good map overall.
It would be nice, however, if the time limit for completing city quests were removed when testing the map in single player.
