Lordaeron: TA Information debrief, July 2018 Hey everybody. So, here we are once again. I didn't think I'd return to LTA as editor, but due to a simple twist of fate SvnmS and I struck a deal. Now that I'm back in town I'd like to make a few announcements about how the map will be faring in the upcoming days. L:TA will finally (and long overdue) have an official Credits list. This always bothered me while editing the map. LTA has been using custom map resources from various sites (most notably the Hive, of course) for many years now without sporting an official credits list for the resource creators involved. I understand how it may be infuriating for resource creators to not be credited for their work and indirect contribution to a map's success. This is especially true for a map like LTA, which has become very popular, arguably one of WCIII's most popular through the game's timespan. Making the credits list is hard and tedious work, so I will need help from you guys. If any of you feel inclined to help me out with this, feel free to send me links to any custom models, textures, icons or whatever that you can find on Discord and I will greatly appreciate it. 1.51 or 1.54? This is a topic that is a little itchy. LTA 1.51 (my last version as editor earlier) has in recent time been considered one of the best versions of LTA to date. With the apparent majority of the LTA playerbase sharing the opinion that the map has been going downhill since then, I had the discussion with SvnmS about whether I should continue on 1.54 as is natural, or if I should revert back to 1.51. I have decided to continue working from LTA 1.54, as to me this feels the most natural and genuine. This means that I need help from you guys. I have not played LTA since 1.51, as I was burned out from the map. I don't know much about what has happened either, although I've been reading up some the last days or so. An active playerbase is very important for me now in order to make progress on fixing what people dislike about 1.54, and improving the stuff that has potential. Post bug reports, balance complaints, whatever. This is the main reason why I made the decision below. I will also reupload the old Lordaeron TA 1.51 version with improved compatibility with Warcraft III 1.29 to MakeMeHost, should people feel like playing my last version again. Official LTA Discord server. I've made a Discord server for the map. It's going to function as a hub for map development, and perhaps gameplay too should folks feel like it. Stick around! https://discord.gg/gRCczac NEW VERSION WHEN???? Calm down, no ETA yet. Chill the heck out.
