Warhammer: Eternal Strife is a mod for WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne, created by Nightmare2077.
These are Warcraft 3 Altered Melee maps based on Warhammer Fantasy Battle universe. 2-, 4- and 8- player maps feature 11 unique, fully-developed playable races: Skaven, Lizardmen, High Elves, Empire, Dwarfs, Warriors of Chaos, Orcs&Goblins, Dark Elves, Beastemen, Wood Elves and Vampire Counts. All 4 original Warcraft III races are intact and are also playable. If you are not familiar with WH universe - don't worry, just think of this map as another Fantasy, I'm sure you'll enjoy it nonetheless.
The custom races are analogous to Warcraft III original fractions: each race (normally) contains 4 unit-producing structures, 3-level townhall, item shop, 4 heroes, 10+ combat units, including spellcaters and siege units... all that good stuff! Type a command in chat to select a race.
There is also a Campaign, which as of summer 2016 consists of 5 chapters.
Each race [except for recently made Vampire Counts] has 4 specialisations (called "doctrines", "paths", "guilds"... depending on the race, the idea is the same); the player can choose only one. Specialisations might make custom races somewhat overpowered compared to original races, so for those who don't want to use this "advantage", they can be turned off (the instructions for that are given ingame). Specialisations give each hero a free item (a weak one), unlock new abilities and improve already existing ones, allow the training of new special units and upgrade the ordinary ones. All this is done through instant but pricey upgrades at townhalls: there are a total of 7 upgrades (1 at T1, 2 at T2 and 4 at T3).
How to install:
5 melee (custom game) maps are attached. They have the .w3x format. Save them to ...\Warcraft III\Maps folder.
WH_EternalStrife.w3n is a campaign and should be saved in ...\Warcraft III\Campaign folder. Access it by clicking Single Player>Custom Campaign in the main menu.
