Hitchhickers Guide to Warcraft

2a)Humans-Units

Be aware that it may be difficult to understand the humans unless:
You are one or
You have seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Here is a short description of the major human warcraft units:

"Your the King! Well, I didn't vote for you!"
1.Peasants-This is what every actual human feels like they are, which is why you will usually find a large amount of them with a human player. They are also weak and stupid like actual humans. To add a more "fantasy" feeling to the game, the peasants are also hard-working and spend thier free-time just standing there, as opposed to drinking or having sex. Although the peasants are weak, the peasants do need to fight every now and then. Usually it is when you need more meatshields (see Footmen 2a.2)
*If you are a Warcraft novice, remember to click on a peasant a lot to hear thier thoughts (See How do you Play Warcraft? 1.3)

"Grab your sword, and Fight the Horde!"
2.Footmen-Cannon fodder, bait, front-line infantry, meat shields. Call them what you will, they still stand as the base of the human army. They are cheap and weak, like peasants, only with swords and armor, so that they can absorb the blows for your good units. Footmen have "loyalty" or "patriotism" instead of stupidity like the peasants do. This makes the player feel more like a king, and it makes the footmen more willing to die for this said "king".
*If you are a Warcraft novice, remember to use footmen only when you can't get anything better. If you do accidently get some, it may be necessary to kill them later off to give food to your other better units. They are very loyal so they won't mind.
 
Hell, its probably possible to kill enemies with peasants. But the enemy would have to be pretty bad...
Anyways, I'm not trying to be realistic or anything. I was just bored.
Btw, how long did the game last? Sounds interesting. I tried something similar without the pali before. I lost.
My descriptions may sound a little cynical, but I always felt a little of that from the Hitchiker's series.

"Tis just a flesh wound!"
3.Knights- Footmen on horses.
*If you have never seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail, than put down the guide, turn off the computer, and go see it.

"Where is my pint? I can't shoot straight unless I had at least a pint!"
4.Dwarven Riflemen-Drunk and trigger-happy, just like real humans. However, because dwarves are tougher, and more drunk and trigger-happy. In real life they would probably have more friendly fire casualties than anything. In war however, its fine to shove them into the fray and pray that the pints won't cost more than the drinks.
*Buy a beer or ale

"For the end of the world spell, press ctr-alt-del."
5.Priests and Sorceresses-Both of these units are spellcasters. They can die easily, but make up for it by being extremely annoying to the opponents.
*If you are a Warcraft novice, remember that although a priest can heal, sorceresses can turn enemies into sheep. That ability is altogether more useful, satisfying, and its hilarious. It also allows you to brag more. (See Warcraft Guide for Aliens 1.6-9)
 
Another disease!
4. Stupidity: A most dangerous disease that no one knows you caought until it is too late. When you contact it, you end up thinking that its everyone else that is the looser, and it's you whose smart. This disease is often combined with all diseases, and can be fatal if not treated immediatly.
Example: in hosts: OMG, you t00k 3 seconds to dl, stupid noob!!
Person: what the...?
Person left the game!

In gamers: OMG!! game so imba! omg!
Guy: No, you just suck, and you run into the towers 12 times.
Gamer: no!! imba game! You all suck! I rock!
Gamer has left game
Guy: omg... n00b!
Duration: Until death. Usually there's no realization that your supid until its too leate, and then your dead, killed by people much smarter than you.
Cure: Realize that your an idiot. Go to school. Learn. Grow. Become less like an idiot. if that all fails, shoot yourself.

More units

6. Spell Breaker- Basically a magc immune footy who looks cooler. The basic ability of the spell breaker is to steal the usless spells from an enemy unit and put it on another useless unit. Doing this makes people very angry. Once the other team realizes this, the promptly leave.
 
Bump!

Something new, and to bump
5a) Custom maps

Custom maps are supposed to be non-Blizzard created maps that people play. The defenition is completly wrong. Here is a better version:

Maps come in two types:
-DoTA copies
-Not DoTA copies

there are about a million DoTA copies, a million Crappy Tower defences, and a million crrappy "X hero siege" maps. There are rarly any few decent maps. Any decent map created is usually completly unused because the stupid n00bs who say, "D0-|-/-\ F0xorz! noob! I uber h43x0rz joo! I the 1337 Penis!" Therefore, there are no such thing as a custom map.
 
errr lets see...

things to remember:
alt+f4 is a way to get out of embarrassing mistakes
the more peasants you have, the faster you harvest... and the faster you die to rushes...

Noob opening strategy (yea, this actually happened on RT)
3v3 game
Player A: ok what strat r we goin?
Player B: i got tihs gaem
Player B: whosyourdaddy
*Player B runs 5 militia at creeps
*militia all die
Player B: (All chat) WTF YOU HAX MY CHeAT DONT WORK
*Player B leaves
Player C: wow... thats a noob... seriously...

IMPORTANT: UNMOUNT ARCHERS WHEN FIGHTING AIR

Wow. I need to remember that. Thats funny.

By the way, is that a Serra Angel avatar? It looks pretty cool.
 
Adding for the aliens thing:

Use your native language, it probably looks and sounds like noobish. For instance:

You may be trying to say: Your base is not so well established. I am going to destroy it.
In noobish this is: OMGOMGWTFOMFG!!!!!/\/\/\/\\/\/\/\ur bse s ded 1377lolololol!!!>:))))))KLLU!!!urn00bnn00b1377lololololololo/\!!!!

Also, if you were trying to taunt your opponents: You are not good at this game.
Noobish: urdednooblololololol!!!!suk!suk!13371337!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lolololololol

As you can see, all you need is character translation.

You want to say: Oh man you beat me

Intro to the Orcs:
Orcs are basically green humanoids with an orbital disfiguration. They used to be really bloodlusty but now just sit around and never heal their units. Also, they never figured math out so their buildings look like piles of cat puke. Generally, people who play as the orcs most of the time either like the color green or have a deep inferiority complex.
 
A few spelling errors:

Well, that's all for now. If you would like me to stop pointing out mistakes, please tell me. I'm trying to be helpful, but I would be happy to stop because of how time-consuming this is. :rolleyes:

Cool, new smiley: <3
 
/bumpish /update

Bump to tell you that I added everything and updated it too. Thank you for the ideas.

The Lost Map

Legends tell of a custom map, made somewhere in July 2005, that is perfectly balanced. It never gets boring, always is a blast to play, and is so well protected that no one, save the creator, can load, edit, or otherwise plagiarize it.

Recently, archaeologists (all right, unemployed single men) began to scour the internet, searching for traces of this so-called "perfect map." After weeks of getting wasted, passing out, searching, and repeating, they kept finding this one sequence of characters: qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm. Pondering what this meant, they typed it into google image search. This, of course, yeilded only pictures of naked midgets and high school dropouts wallowing in their own vomit.

Suddenly, Stu Bidasoe, one of the 'archaeologists', realized that the sequence of characters was the qwerty code for keyboards. With a sudden burst of energy, he quickly typed qwerty inventor into google and got porn. Scrapping his computer, he rushed to the nearest library and found a book on the man who invented qwerty. He then took the name down and searched for the mapmaking world for him.

Nothing. The man was nowhere to be found.

Then Stu realized that qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm was a code. After a month of codecracking, he found this solution: The map was the product of a monkey dancing on a keyboard at Blizzard.

Stu called Derek 'the Kurgan' Simmons, the producer of battle.net, and asked him about the monkey.

That was the last we heard of Stu Bidasoe.

So, to this day, we know not of the "perfect map"'s whereabouts, but we hope that it may be recovered and mass-produced into a million DotAs.


Note: minor change

    See how we like that.

    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread

    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/
