Longtime Warcraft 2 player playing again
« on: February 27, 2019, 02:31:32 AM »
I played Warcraft 2 back on Kali on Windows 95 in 1996, and later on Battle net with the Battlenet version. What I'm really hoping for is now a better computer AI is available that can play as well/near to a human player, as was not the case back then, and some mods would also be useful for balancing the game out, such as the fact that orcs are totally defenseless against unholy armor. That there are useless spells such as animate dead/whirlwind/fireball and that flame shield doesn't protect well from a bloodlusted ogre mage/that orcs are obviously way more powerful than humans.

Welcome back mate :)

Good to see another old player returning to the original awsome RTS.

BTW: While whirlwinds are mostly just annoying individually when you multicast a heap of them they can seriously mess up an entire base.
