Wow, if this doesn't bring back memories haha. It's been a long time, I see I still have the highest Warcraft 3 related post with almost 700k views haha. Those were the days.

Haven't played much of Warcraft anymore, but I would definitely contribute with some newer interests.
The site looks great, glad to see it revitalized.

Got confused by the email I received - thought it was for TheHive. TheHelper! Way better.

I got a lot of help on this site for WC3. I am an active League of Legends player - but have not touched WC3 in many years. I never got tired of actual WC3 gameplay, or the World Editor, but, I do not consider WC3 to be... particularly, playable, anymore.

Main reasons:
1. Players, rather than Battle.net/Blizzard, hosting Custom Games.
2. Inability to re-connect after DCing.
3. Halting the gaming experience (for everyone) while someone is lagging.

^ These just aren't acceptable in 2017. They weren't even acceptable in 2011, the last time I played. Very dated concepts.

Add in:
1. The countdown timer doesn't stop when someone quits during countdown. (Really? Come on Blizzard!?)
2. Excessive hacking (in Melee/Ladder, or Custom).
3. No audience. No one was playing in 2011. I imagine it is even worse, now.

If Bliz changed any of this, that might make the game relevant. Not sure if it's in their interested to do that. To me, it's crazy there is no WC4 (complete with an epic World Editor), yet. I would be all in.

Whoa.....I had an account here? What did I post on here?! I can't remember......my ymail box has no reference to this site at all except that recent email you sent about revitalizing the forums......I guess I must have deleted them all or this forum used to be called something different back then....as I now organize and keep my emails from in their respective folders according to whoever they're from, so for example, for emails from GoG, I have a folder that's named "GoG emails".

Had to reset password because I forgot my password to my account....

Wait you guys keep a history of what we post on/create right? I can go and check my profile to see what I did here........because I don't remember jack! hahahaha:p

EDIT: - I called the folder "Helper Forums" and not "The Helper Forums" as this is what this forum is called....I shall rename it accordingly so I don't get confused. :p:oops: No wonder I couldn't find any references to this site, until I did a search using the search function and found out that there DOES exist emails from here......

Oh, cool thanks!

Ahhh, so my last post on here was on this thread which dates back to 11th of August 2012....whoa.....I was wondering where I asked this because I'm now writing up another story and remembered asking a question like that but couldn't remember where I asked it.....now I know where I asked it......I left them hanging without saying a thankyou.... shame on me! Actually, I might just go back and say that now, better late than never right?! :p:D

And my first post seems to be about this thread.....ahhh, yes now I remember, was trying to make my own warcraft 3 map................................ 12th of Jan 2010....looks like I still never got a reply and I must have given up on it and moved on..... :(

EDIT: I actually got reply, forgot there was another page after that....I must have either not seen it or or seen it but still wouldn't work after that fix and just moved on or just forgot about it...

EDIT2: Ok, just read all the threads I've been in and holy crap do I sound like an annoying child! I guess my name checks out, but damn - how did you guys endure the pain?! hahahaha :eek::p

Loved this site back in the days. I'm neither playing or creating stuff with the editor anymore like most of the people here. But I'm confused no one has mentioned Dota2, They have an advanced editor that you can make custom maps with. I haven't played Dota2 in 1 years now, but i guess there's a lot of custom maps now.

Woah uhh thanks for the Super Lurker trophy, now I can really live up to my name!

Man I forgot this forum even existed... I've been signed up for almost 10 years. I was 15 when I joined :eek: am now 24.

This place was amazing back when I was making WC3 maps, always great advice given within a small time frame. Even later on, I would come here for odd general tech support and I'd usually be sorted out. It was always a thrill to answer someone's question effectively, and be thanked with that sweet, sweet +rep.

Honestly I wouldn't know how to get this site going and get popular again, but I've always valued it as a place to get friendly, quality support for map-making and gaming questions without any of the drama from more popular forums. Although I'm not really a part of it, the community is great here; perhaps this could become a community hub for certain games, offering technical and gameplay-related support and strategy, and maybe even hosting it's own game events, like WC3 custom game events (given the website's history!), although I think discord has taken over that market.

Also, whatever happened to AceHart? That guy was my hero back in the day.

It is in a similar place as sc2 where modding never quite caught on. I think part of it is that a lot of the people who would get into modding can now just make original games. That said I love dota 2, and would enjoy seeing anything with it on the site.

Old faces indeed.

So many people here who joined in like 2005, or 2006! Brings back so many memories of y'all, I remember reading your tutorials back then :)

@1)ark_Knight I remember your Hell vs Heaven Guide. Unfortunately the links don't work anymore, but I used to know those recipes by heart! What an epic map. Terribly unbalanced, but just so much fun

I wondered why, all of a sudden, people suddenly swarmed back? I feel like something has reminded a lot of you to this forums...

Which went to my "Spam" folder - not quite sure why.
Check your email's spam filter rules. Just make sure you actually tone down the amount of emails you're receiving from TH, so it doesn't get automatically flagged.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.
  • jonas jonas:

    ???
  • Ghan Ghan:
    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Nobody?
  • jonas jonas:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hi vypur85, long time no see.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    We are all somebody
  • Varine Varine:
    I kinda like being nobody tho.
