Like WOW, but lasts around 1 hour from start to end, you can pick from many different "heros" which you level up and buy items for using gold you get from killing monsters and enemy heros. the aim is to take the other base...

To play you need Warcraft 3 with the frozen throne expansion pack... that's all, we play almost every night and are all in teamspeak ;)

ah so it's a W3 mod? cool :D

if it's so I might join u guys. I just need to ask for a borrowed FT disk since mine went tits :(

I used to play some W3 mods in a LAN with fungi and nihlathak, mostly the diablo 2 mod and a couple more.

yup just like that :) i think we know of a no-cd patch which would allow you to play without a cd (still need an official cd key + install) i lost a cd and bought a new copy before we found it :(

my FT is messed up and doesn't allow me to install.

But do u guys play it in a LAN or is it an official server? coz my W3 copy is a burned one, not original (a friend of mine does have W3 original but not FT).

Can I play with a copied cd? or I need a valid cd-key?

online, you use the battle.net, so you need a valid CD key. offline, piracy is bad, mmmmm-k

lol :P

But don't u say the game is only 1 hour long? Back then, when I played some similar mods like diablo2, we chose a class, and we would go through the map in a couple hours. maximum level was 10, and after ending act 5 (we made it as far as act 5 , it got very hard from then on), we had to start over, act 1 and lvl 1.

NOTE: I don't mean the game diablo2,  i mean the mod called diablo 2 for warcraft 3 lol (although I was a diablo 2 junkie some time ago)
