Old Guard will be continuing our weekly private matches of War in the Plaguelands this Saturday, November 16th at 4:00PM EST / 10:00PM CEST. For the unacquainted, War in the Plaguelands is a large-scale RTS map based on Warcraft lore between the end of Frozen Throne and Wrath of the Lich King. Teams are locked, with one exception, and players battle with massive armies and powerful heroes over important locations in the Plaguelands of the northern Eastern Kingdoms. The map is spawn-based, meaning units spawn at player's base and do not need to be trained or manually teched. Each player starts with a squad of heroes that scale as they level up. Heroes are lost forever on death, with a couple of exceptions. As events from the Plaguelands timeline play out, factions can receive more heroes. Finally, there are two versions of War in the Plaguelands: 12 player and 24 player... (6v6 and 12v12 respectively).
Each week we will start the matches at 4:00PM EST / 10:00PM CEST with an in-house 12P match. Players can reserve a faction in the Old Guard Discord. This first match is usually played by veterans and will last between one and two hours. After that match ends, we will play a couple 24P matches that are more casual and inclusive. If turnout is high, we will consider hosting in-house 24P matches. Hope to see ya'll there!
