Lone Fan Turns StarCraft II Into New Warcraft RTS

It’s been 11 years since Blizzard released Warcraft III. And since it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting an RTS sequel any time soon, a Chinese fan has gone and made himself one.

What you’re looking at here is World Of Warcraft RTS: Alliance vs Horde (what was wrong with Warcraft IV?), a modified take of StarCraft II that looks a little rough, I’ll grant you, but gets an A+ for effort.

If you’ve got StarCraft II, you can download it yourself and give it a try (it’s around 150MB). Just go to SCII’s arcade and search for “Alliance and Horde”, it should pop right up.

    • Awww c’mon.. those pandas are the biggest bunch of whiners I’ve ever seen. “Oh gee, you unleashed the Sha, it’s all your fault, now we can’t get drunk anymore, we are already fat as barrels, but we want to drink more to increase our beer belly… ”
      As a player, the only thing that came to mind was: Instead of whingeing and whining that much, grab that barrel or whatever you have and do something. Just because 2 races crashed on your island doesn’t mean your life stops. They have all these artifacts they don’t use, because they are oh-so powerful, but keep whining about it.

  • Am I the only one who thinks it was really redundant to make an RTS based on World of Warcraft, when that game was already based on an RTS? Are people these days unaware there were other Warcrafts before WoW?

    • Considering the player differentials, yes. Warcraft was no mean a lightweight in terms of sales and player base, but in comparison to WoW sub figures, there’s probably at least a million or two people who have never heard of the RTS.
