Warcraft III – Reign of Chaos Games/Maps

The maps in this section are specifically for those using the basic Warcraft III game (just Reign of Chaos, without The Frozen Throne expansion). They will generally still work if you have TFT installed, though in certain maps, the TFT expansion will result in minor odd issues.


Liquid TD 3.1


Liquid TDThis version of Liquid Tower Defense is designed for Reign of Chaos, although it also seems to work well with the Frozen Throne expansion. Liquid Tower Defense is a game for 2-9 players (you can try playing it with only 1 player, but I sure didn’t get far on my own…). Everyone is on the same team, and the goal is to survive all waves of creeps. The team has 30 lives. There are 5 races available, each with different strengths. In addition, there are also “lottery towers” which don’t do a lot of damage, but reward you with a lot of gold when they get the killing blow on a creep. It’s important to begin building right away, as towers take some time to build. You get gold at a basic rate, as well as gold for killing creeps.

The final player (grey) gets extra gold since they’re the one at the end and in a large game (9 players), they may not see much action. However, their position is important, since all creeps that don’t die will travel to their area last before leaking.

Spawns travel from the top left and bottom left towards the right side where they start to meet up towards the middle and travel back again towards the left. It sounds complicated, but it’s really quite simple.

The gameplay is very similar to the frozen throne version, with a few major variations. First of all, there are 5 races instead of 4. The scoreboard ranks by total kills, but frantically juggles the names of players who have the same number of kills (this is very noticable at the beginning of the game). This version also allows the host to “kick” players who become annoying, which brings that players gold to 0 and destroys their existing towers. An oddity in this version is that there are a lot of references to version 3.0, even though the map claims to be v3.1. In many ways, this ROC version is superior to it’s TFT counterpart.

Liquid tower defence is a pretty fun map, and certainly worth a try with friends. It’s not extremely difficult to beat, but is rather fun and can still present a challenge.

Autumn Crossing TD


Autumn Crossing TDA great team TD that works with Reign of Chaos. This one is playable by 2-4 players, but is best with 4. The map is divided into 4 corners, and each player is assigned a corner. Creeps come from both vertical and horizontal sides in each corner. There are no defined “paths” for the creeps to follow, so you may want to maze by creating paths with your towers. Different tower types can be built and upgraded.

Both challenging and fun, this map is definitely recommended.

Canada Risk Teams

Canada Risk TeamsCanada Risk Teams is very similar to Risk Revolution. It can be played by anywhere from 2-12 players, with up to 2 players per team. Canada Risk is compatible with Reign of Chaos (it also works with Frozen Throne).

In Canada Risk, you do not roll dice, and you do not have to take turns attacking. The map is split up into the provinces of Canada, with bases in each province. If you control all the bases in a province, your income increases.

The game begins with each base being randomly assigned to a different player. Each player is given a small amount of gold with which to build units for the first turn. There are game hints that pop up during turns which can be helpful. You are free to build and move units whenever you want. When fighting, you can micro-manage your units as well if desired. It’s all done in Real-Time.

One large difference between Canada Risk and Risk Revolution is that in Canada Risk there are no boats, and no healing units available. Canada Risk games are usually much shorter as well, as the map isn’t as vast. Not a bad game, but probably one that will only appeal to Canadians.

Canada Risk Teams has good short-term playability, and would be excellent as a beginner’s risk game, as it’s not terribly complex. It’s one of the few maps that could be considered to be an educationl game.

LOTR Castle Defence FINAL


LOTR Castle Defence FINALA version of the popular Lord of the Rings Castle Defence, designed for Reign of Chaos. 8 players are strongly recommended, but the game should still be playable with 4-7. In this defence map, there is a castle in the center, with 4 entrances where waves of creeps try to enter. Using a hero and units, you do your best to fend them off. You get gold each turn as well as gold for the creeps you kill. Gold can be used to buy more units, to buy items, or to upgrade your units or the towers provided.

A fun, well designed custom game. Units, creeps, and heros are named after Lord of the Rings characters.

Micro Arena v3j


Micro ArenaThis game is dependant mostly on microing your units to beat your opponents in the arena. The host choses statistics for each round (supply limit, heroes, lvl of heroes, air allowed) and everyone prepares the best army they can create using every race. As many games as you want can be played, and each game consists of a few rounds. Rounds are done tournament style… 2 people at a time are randomly chosen to fight one another. Once everyone has had a chance to fight, the winners go on to the next round. This continues until there is a final winner. At that point, a new game starts with new armies and settings. Since battles are done 2 people at a time, the others watch these battles, for there is only 1 arena. This game can be played with any amount of people over 2.

Weakest Link 2


Weakest Link 2 for Reign of ChaosFor 2-8 players, using a Reign of Chaos compatible map. Both German and English answers are accepted.

Note: If you have Frozen Throne installed, I have 3 more TFT-only Weakest Link game maps in the other section that you might prefer (the one here will work in both ROC and TFT but the TFT-only Weakest Link games are a little more fun in my opinion).

The way this one works is that everyone hears a unit talk. You then have a few seconds to type in the answer. If you answer correctly, you proceed to the next round. If you answer incorrectly, you die and the games ends for you.

There are better “Weakest Link” games out there, but most can only be played with The Frozen Throne. This one works with Reign of Chaos. Not highly recommended, but if you like Weakest Link games and don’t have the Warcraft 3 TFT expansion, you may enjoy it nonetheless.
