creators of LOD posted something on their website yesterday and I think Mods, Admins and players here should be noted:
In short: ONLY USE WARCRAFT 3 PATCH 1.26!
LoD maps from 6.85j2 and onwards (any future maps) can no longer be played on any patch other than Warcraft 3 patch 1.26. Patches 1.24, 1.28 or above, or anything else, are no longer compatible with LoD or DotA.
This means that any platforms that use other patches, even official Battle.net, are no longer supported. It is your choice if you wish to play outdated maps just for the sake of an outdated platform.
Any communities that can prove that they have more than 50 active members and are willing to transfer to RGC can contact me and will receive a completely free room with unlimited administration rights and free hostbots (in either EU, US, or Asia).
RGC is the only client that actively supports LoD and DotA, and as such, RGC decided they will stay on patch 1.26. Any clients using patch 1.26 can still play new LoD and DotA maps, any other patch can't and won't in the future. We will let you know if this changes due to blizzard's new patches in the future, but we doubt it will.
We ask you to spread this information on your community's website or forum, so there will be no confusion as to why no new LoD/DotA maps are released.
We ask you to tell any communities where it's possible to change the WC3 patch to 1.26 to do so. You can use this tool to switch to patch 1.26: http://www.dota-util...er-120-121.html
If you are a Blizzard employee or have connection to one: we would happily work together with Blizzard to make LoD and DotA possible in future patches. Please contact us: email@example.com
If you have any questions, please ask them here.
