The 1.30.2 patch changes this method of hosting. Instead of players directly connecting to you, they connect through a Blizzard proxy. This means you may have very high ping if you're outside North America / Europe / small parts of Asia.
To host with WC3Connect, follow these steps (you must be on 1.30.1 patch, not 1.30.2):
- Get WC3Connect, create an account, and login
- Under Settings, check "Enable Hosting from LAN" (if you don't see this option, get the latest version of the app)
- Set up port forwarding for your Warcraft III game port (configured in Warcraft III -> Options -> Gameplay); see Wikihow for a guide
- Open up Warcraft III, go to Local Area Network, and create a game
- Other players should now be able to join your game by selecting it from the Unmoderated section in WC3Connect. They will connect directly to your WC3, so if they are in the same geographic region as you, they should have low ping.
This functionality is still in beta; please post here or let us know on our Discord if you run into any issues. Also let us know if it works!

For those of you wondering why you are unable to play that game of Legion TD, Vampirism or Dota you were so looking forward to, It is because We as Auto hosting Bot providers felt drastic measures were needed to show how much value we bring to the Warcraft 3 community. Not only do we provide a stable host for all to enjoy where we endeavor to keep the games clear of griefers and trolls but we also strive to keep games competitive by adding ranking systems and tracking your stats to ensure a more enjoyable experience.
Blizzard wants to remove Hosting bots from Warcraft 3. If they do, this is what it will be like for everyone. Fear not, for our services are only down temporarily but if we don't band together and convince Blizzard to change their mind, you will never be able to play that competitive custom game ever again.
Official message from all the following communities:
ENT Gaming, OHSystem, MYMGN, MMH, GhostPlay, Diplomunion.com, Werewolf Transylvania, MaulBot, Warcraft3.eu
Support us on the official Blizzard forum https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/12790218/ or share your opinions here

Let us know your feedback:
- Is system confusing?
- Needs more features/commands in lobby?
- You'd rather just have regular lobby with autobalancing (where you can enter up to 2 friends on the same team)?
- You'd rather have it back to normal?
Basically it works like this:
- You join lobby, type !solo to play by yourself or use !party / !join to play with friends
- The bot divides players into tiers based on ELO score, it will try to start games with players in the same or similar tiers.
- It will also prefer to put new players (<10 games) with new players, and old players with old players
- If there are not enough players in the same tiers, after a few minutes the constraints will relax, and the tiers / new-vs-old-players will be ignored
- Games are autobalanced, but players in the same party (up to 3 players) are put on the same team
A few other things:
- You should type !a before leaving the game, otherwise you might enter a match at the same time as when you leave and get an auto-ban
- Currently GProxy++ and most commands in lobby are not supported, it is work-in-progress (one thing to test: if you use GProxy++ can you still join, or can you not even connect to the game?)
- If you leave and re-join you will go to the bottom of the queue
- It shows an "ETA" but it is just static 5 minutes right now... (after 4 minutes constraints on tiers are relaxed)
The beta test will not be happening all the time, just for a few hours. We will change things based on feedback, please reply below!

However, as I kept repeating and stressing over the past years, we do our job and the service to the community volunatirly; not because we want praise but because giving back to the community and working for an entity like ENT is fulfilling enough - at least, that's been my mantra for the past.
Almost 5 years later, a lot on ENT has changed. I have worked my way up to where I am now. I have worked together with awesome people like nabo. and was enormously lucky to get someone like hazardous as his sucessor.
What players often forget about is that our job is not just about processing ban requests. A lot of it is also interacting with users and the staff members themselves. Many of which you get to like a lot and foster friendships to; hence, it is even more devasating if these people leave you - whether you want it or not, you take it personal. There's no shielding to that as I personally experienced.
Besides the personal aspects I have for ENT, many things like the wiki, restructering of both forum and staff come to mind but sadly the recent events over the past months (acp breach, ddos, internal issues, etc.) sort of overshadow that, bringing to mind that having someone you can work closely together and rely upon is something you should never underestimate. (Thanks nabo. & haz!)
To be honest, I never thought I would retire considering Warcraft 3 was in a status-quo-like situation but with Blizzard's recent strategic decision to breathe new life into our beloved game, the job now takes more time and energy than I can contribute. It feels like holding back the potential ENT can have in this new "era" and that's wrong.
Therefore, I hereby retire from all official duties as a Staff Dept. member and discontinue my work at MMH as well.
Considering Warcraft 3 has/is part of rougly half my lifespan (about 10 years now), I have seen many people come and go; and even if they will never read this, I would like to specifically - out of respect - mention their names as they have been dedicated players shaping the community, true friends for many years and loyal souls you could always count on (Metall-Drago, Pongu, Nate, Nabo <3).
With that said, I am not sad, nor do I regret my decision knowing that ENT is very lucky to have people with the same character traits. Besides oldies like haunt who have accompanied me over the past years, too, it is jabba who has been working effortlyless for the community. It probably did not go unnoticed as he got more publicly involved as well and as my last action as Staff Dept. member, haz and I congratulate and welcome him to be officially part of the Staff Deptartment. A well deserved promotion with great potential for ENT. Just stay true to your soul and remember what you have learnt but also do not repeat our mistakes, jab.
I am sorry to those I may have done wrong over the past century and sorry to those I may not have shown the appreciation they deserve. I tried my best to improve ENT to what it is today and thank everyone for a great time and the precious moments which truely make you realize what being a community means.
In regards to the transition, I will stay around for counsel (if desired) and for all permission-related matters.
Far well, Clan StiD, ENT, my fellow friends and long live Warcraft 3.

Blizzard has released a new patch and a hotfix quickly after (https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/to ... 709?page=1).
ENT's bots are therefore currently offline and/or trying to re-connect. We are still looking into how the patch impacts the bots.
Please check ENT's Discord (https://discord.gg/23gCRX5) in #public-news for future updates. Thanks!

a few months ago, we actively approached new potential moderators.
We took our time observing and teaching them everything an ENT staff member needs to know/do and the results have been great so far.
They are so satisfactory, in fact, that we are re-opening the "Moderator Candidates" program again.
In case you always wanted to become a moderator but weren't sure if you got what it takes, then don't worry.
The mod program is specifically for you as we are working closely together with you, answering your questions in a more direct and co-operative atmosphere.
The timing is even more interesting given Wintermaul Wars is being actively developed again and staff members to moderate it are necessary, as well as new staff members officially moderating Risk Dev.
While the concept seems more loosely given the "give it a try"-feeling, we expect your dedication and commitment nonetheless.
Application criteria have been adjusted; feel free to apply!
Our staff is looking forward to working with you. :)

In exchange, you get a tier 1 reward (purple forum color) or tier 3 (colored Discord name). Check our wiki for more information regarding the tiers.
If you would like to exchange spare cd-keys, post a technical support topic and private message the Staff Department (Hazardous or me) your spare keys. Once they are confirmed to be working, the donation process will continue.

Enterprise Gaming is a big community. We are talking about new rules and discussing current ones on a daily basis. It is difficult to keep up to date with all the news and changes - which unfortunately, is a must for you and us.
So how do you do it, you may ask yourself? ENT has a few hubs where we centralize all rule updates/changes and publish information and announcements. You can choose the one you prefer!
We also try to announce rule changes each Saturday to further minimize the risk of missing them.
- Discord: ENT's community & staff chat; You will find any announcement there.
- Wiki and its news history; Only used to log rule changes.
- Forum & In-game announcements. However, we strongly recommend you checking Discord nonetheless as this type of announcement is unreliable.
- Info-Tourneys: Join the forum group to receive emails to your forum registered email about tournament news.
If you have any questions regarding rules (and our publishing procedure) or announcements, feel free to contact the Management.
