So you decided to know what War Craft 2 is?
WC2 (for short) is a strategy game made by Blizzard
. Blizzard is known for making games such as Diablo and StarCraft.
WC2 involves two races. The Noble humans and the Blood thirsty Orcs.
Both races are pretty much the same yet for some different spells. The
point of the game is to destroy the other race by completeing certain given
tasks. The game itself has nice color and the units look awesome. The battles
may last a while if a lot of units are at place but overall the game has
the speed and graphics.
Units may be built or trained. Units are your guys who fight,
defend, patrol, and mainly , Kill. Units can be Footmen, Knights Or Ogres
and Trolls if your the Orcs. Each unit has its own stats and may be upgraded
by paying a visit (and some gold) to your BlackSmith. Troll Axethrowers
and Elven Archers may be upgraded at you Lumber Mills. Each unit can only
take so much damage before they die.
Once you play the single player for a bit. Its time for more
advanced raids in Multiplayer. You can use a Modem, IPX Network, Serial
Cable, Or the internet. To see a very affordable and great multiplayer
server, check out Kali Net .
When you play multiplayer, the players aren't as stupid as the computer
(lets hope not...or lets hope so =Þ ) but they aren't as fast. Other
players are harder to kill and they may be 10 times better than you since
they rush or develop strategies. I played and i've seen some amazing
players but i've also seen some crappy players.
When you start a multiplayer game you may want allies. They
do not attack you but may aid you and help you in fights. Allies are usually
picked once inside the game and its done mainly by TVB (kali term for Top
Vs Bottom). I personally like games where theres 6 players and we all ally
for a good 3v3 game.
As you see in this picture. There are 3 of us and we are all close by.
Our team support helps us along and also since we are so close we can build
more defense. The screen shot to the right is the unit. in this case i
have a Elvish Ranger selected. Notice the unit is highlighted in green.
Archers are good in penetration but there armor is horrid. This lil dude
has been upgraded from a normal Archer to a Ranger and then his arrows
have been upgraded twice. Remember that upgradeing does cost money. Now
back to the point. As you see in the mini map. We are expanding as we kill
off. Gold mines are needed so we can get money and keep our town supplied
with buildings and units. Also not only do we need gold but we need Lumber
and oil for ships, buildings and more.
Now you get the basic idea of whats what and how to play multiplayer.
I would recommend this game for C&C lovers and i think you'll enjoy
Note: This picture is my level. =) A co-op Level.
