Warcraft 3 Map Making Tutorial
11:35 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released a tutorial on the fine art of competitive melee map creation for Warcraft III, the third game in the popular fantasy real time strategy series. The tutorial follows the design process from map layout to creep placement and item drops.

When creating the creep camp you will want to make sure that the creep are tucked away from the main roads on the map. When the player is moving around the map he or she should never accidentally agro a creep camp unless the player chooses to engage the camp. It is frustrating for a player if the creeps are always attacking their army when the player is not trying to engage them. Also, you want to make sure that all creep not guarding a goldmine are set to camp mode as this helps prevent the creep from attacking the player unless attacked. Creep that guard goldmines should never be on camp mode because players will be able to fast expand or build towers near the camp without the creep attacking the constructing building.
