What is war3x?

Overview

Warcraft 3: Expansion (also known as warcraft3x, war3x, and wc3x) is a plugin for Counter-Strike that allows players to obtain and use spells and abilities from the Warcraft 3 games made by _Blizzard_.

How to Play

When a player joins a server that has War3x installed, once they choose their team, they are prompted to choose a _race_ from Warcraft 3. Each _race_ is different and has their own unique _skills_ and _abilities_. When enemies are killed, and objectives are completed, the character will aquire _experience_. When enough experience is earned, the player will gain a level with their selected character, allowing them to train a skill. When a player reaches level 6, they may select an _ultimate_ rather than a skill, which is a powerful ability that, once cast, must cool down for a short duration before being able to be cast again.

Also available is an item shop, which contains purchasable items that can aid players in their quest for server domination.

If the server has long-term experience enabled, experience will remain on the server so that players will be able to resume playing their character(s) on the same server even after disconnecting!

Features

  • 4 selectable races to choose from!
  • A unique racial ability, that increases as levels are gained.
  • 3 skills to train for each race.
  • 3 ultimates to choose from for each race!
  • An item shop containing 9 useful items.
  • Support experience given to players that cast supporting ultimates on their teammates.
  • Multi-Language Support

Planned Features

  • Level cap increased to 15, which will take extremely long to get to.
  • A unique bonus ability received at level 10, which, much like the racial ability, will increase as the player gains levels.
  • The "Backpack" skill received at level 15, which will allow players to hold 2 items at a time, one of which can be a racial item.
  • Racial shops, which will contain unique items available for each race set ( 4 shops total ).
  • 3 Additional playable races, including the Blood Elf, Naga, and Draenei.
  • 1 Additional ultimate available for each race.
  • SQL saving support.

Skill Information

Racial Ability

The racial ability, unique to Warcraft 3: Expansion, is gained automatically at level 0. With each level gained by players, the skill increases in power. By level 9, the skill is capped.

Trained Skills

When a player gains a level with their character, they may select one of three skills that are available to the race they are playing. Each skill has 3 trainable levels, and with every level trained, the power of the skill increases. The same skill can not be trained every level the player gains to prevent them from becoming too powerful too quickly. Instead, the earliest a player can aquire level 3 in a skill is when they reach level 5. The earliest a level 2 skill can be trained is when the player reaches level 3. This means that players must choose at least two skills to train in prior to level 5.

Ultimates

Ultimates are very powerful abilities that are gained at level 6. While a majority of ultimates are offensive, there are some that are defensive and supportive, boosting a player's stats and/or health, making them harder to kill. To use an ultimate, a key must be bound to the ultimate command. To do this, simply open up the console, and type bind <KEY> ultimate, where <KEY> is the key the ultimate is bound to.

Bonus Ability (coming soon)

Much like the racial ability, the bonus ability, gained at level 10, increases in power as the player levels.

Backpack Ability (coming soon)

The backpack ability is gained at the final level of a player's career. It enables them to carry 2 items at a time, one of which can be a racial item. The final level is determined by the server administrator. It can either be level 10 (in place of the bonus ability), or level 15.
