Azeroth Wars: Remastered Beta Version Link to latest version: https://www.epicwar.com/maps/273575/ The Lore Following the defeat of the Orcish Horde and the conclusion of the 2nd War, Azeroth has enjoyed a period of relative peace and stability. This is about to change. The Drums of War thunder once again, and new conflict erupt all over the continent. The Burning Legion, in their unending thirst for conquest are about to unleash their newest weapon on the unsuspecting Kingdom of Lordaeron; the Undead Scourge. In Kalimdor the Night Elves face a new threat in the Warsong and Frostwolf Clan who have come seeking a new homeland. Stormwind and Ironforge too are preparing for war, as history seems to repeat itself and old enemies resurface. Who will prevail in this war of the ages? The Premise Azeroth Wars: RM as its predecessor is a build and control point based strategy game. The game is balanced around preset teams: Scourge+Legion, Lordaeron+Dalaran+Quel'thalas, Frostwolf Clan+Warsong Clan, Sentinels+Cenarion Circle, Khaz Modan+Stormwind and the Fel & Dark Horde. Each faction will face off against an opponent which direct opposite goals, and if they defeat them they will move on to hopefully conquer the entire map. Deviance from Azeroth Wars LR Azeroth Wars: RM very closely resembles Azeroth Wars LR, in terms of setting and team composition, but it is as much its own map as any other version of Azeroth Wars you've played, and maybe even more so. The project has been underway for multiple years and I've developed it alongside the development of Azeroth Wars LR, so there are bound to be similarities, but I assure you that it will be a fresh experience for players of all types. Edit: I've tried to capture the feel of awe I experienced when I first tried Azeroth Wars LR. I don't want everything to be plain and for people to experience within their first couple games. As such the game is littered with different events and secrets that should take a while for players to find.
