    Lordaeron: the Aftermath
    + Diplomunion = true?

    Hello, Diploers! Or Diploms, or Diplo-goers or however you guys like to call yourself.
    For those that don't know me: I'm Draupne, the little known current Editor of Lordaeron: the Aftermath.
    Still to be considered young blood at the editor team, and even mistaken for a map newb the other day while playing as Scourge. Regardless, I've been the main workforce for the version which is currently live on MakeMeHost, version 1.44. This is also most likely going to be the case for the upcoming 1.45, and with this in mind, I have wanted to ask you:

    What do people think of L:TA here on Diplo? Do you have a lot of opinions about the map? Do you praise it? Do you trashtalk it? Every opinion is welcome in this thread. My goal with this thread is to learn what the demographic of Diplomunion think of the map here, and its popularity.

    For those completely unfamiliar with this map: L:TA is a 12 player strategy map in the same style as good ol' Azeroth Wars. It features 12 factions fighting over control of Lordaeron, Khaz Modan, Northrend and Outland. You consolidate your armies through gold obtained from Control Points, and lumber harvested from trees. Your faction can choose to walk different paths and change their playstyle through various events based on Warcraft III and WoW lore.

    The current editors of L:TA are Krotos and myself, with support from the creator, Marshmalo.
    Previous contributors: SvnmS, Goblinkingsp, Sunfall

    I'm personally a big fan of it, and debatably like it more than Azeroth Wars.

    That said, I will not play it, and have not played it since March, until Nerzul's Forsaken is removed from the game.

    LR has 3 kinds of elves. Well 2 but they occupy 3 slots. That's 2/3 times more elves than LTA.

    LR elves > LTA elves.

    LR elves are cooler too.

    By this point you must have figured out this is a shoddy af recruitment attempt

    Haven't played this map for a long time, but when I did I quite disliked the many changes that put macro over micro and the couple of events that made players out right impossible to deal with unless you yourself had managed to progress enough in the game.

    So boo to 'OP' stuff. Yey for the diversity and open alliance structures.

    Probably coz you guys didnt have anywhere near the amount of drama and editor change.

    Not everyone thrives in those situations. Most people don't want to be a part of it hence why LR is pretty much kaput right now.

    Statistics or bust.

    There are ALOT of LTA being hosted on MMH and on no bot. Unless you monitor it 24/7 it is not easy to know how many.

    Comparing the popularity of L:TA with AW wasn't the point of this either, btw.

    Everyone who is in this thread to stir some drama akin to Sukramo vs LR: Get out. Now. You're not needed and definitely not desired to be here.
    Everyone who actually wants to leave some feedback: feel free to continue providing us with it.

    You went on diplo hoping there would be no drama with LTA ? Really ?

    It looks nice, but yeah, way too chaotic. Too many bases while they're just here to be destroyed, because you can't focus everywhere.
    Also, no real balance because people can change their alliance too easily.
    And yeah, macro is more important than micro, which is bad imo.

    The ENT bot for Awlr gets tons of games played, i easily see games filled within the lapse of 30min and on peak hours can be much less than that. LTA games get hosted on mmh indeed but they last a lot to fill and you don't see them hosted all the time while bot does awlr 24/7. Also i have to say that i've been nerding a lot lately playing wc3 and games got pretty much better as theres a pretty solid awlr community of good & average players who come from wc3arena and all those pirate communities, mostly russians & other slavic nationalities.
