A WoW-lore mod?

Community Creations
Hi!

First of all: forgive me if this thread doesn't belong here.

Back in the day, I'd swear I read about a mod that tried to recreate WoW story in a RTS format using SCII editor and some WCIII and WoW models.

Although I played World of Warcraft back in... 2009? I wouldn't say it is my type of game. On the other hand, the rest of WarCraft series is incredible for me, so I would love to play the WoW events in an RTS campaign format... if that exists.

Does it really exist? Was it a joke? Was it an extremely ambitious project that could not be finished?

Thank you very much!
Sounds like something that would require alot of maps, youre limited to being able to upload 10 maps on the Arcade per account so it sounds like something someone would upload on the internet for you to download and play privately without requiring the Arcade.

I tried to look throught SC2Mapster, an external fanmade site dedicated to mapmaking, and could find no results. Thought it is the best place I can think about to find such.

Thank you very much for your answer!

I've looked for it on the arcade too, but didn't find anything either. I didn't look it up on SC2Mapster, so I'll check it later and then I'll write what I had found right here. It would work just like Mass Recall did.

I know there is some gorgeous mod in the making called Armies of Azeroth, which main objective is recreating exact WarCraft III gameplay over StarCraft II editor — That is actually impressive and thrilling.

I don't know if this mod about World of WarCraft storyline really existed. If it was actually a project, probably it merged with Armies of Azeroth in order to create a better mod.

Well, to be honest, that's better than nothing. Way better than nothing.

I did my research on SC2Mapster, and didn't find that mod. Not any mention of it. Probably, I simply misread some information about some WarCraft-esque mod.

What a pitty, I wanted so bad an RTS campaign that told the story and events of World of WarCraft.

Not if you've seen how Warcraft III does it. Basically, you can play any map over B.net except for campaigns of course (heck, the Arcade doesn't support campaigns anyway).

There are WcIII custom campaigns related to WoW lore if you want:

Oh, maybe the mod I was looking for wasn't actually a SC2 mod, but rather a WCIII one!

Thank you very much, I'll give it a look!
