Welcome to the Wintermaul Wars: Tournament Edition page. This project is not N64 emulation related, which is what my Main Site is all about. I suggest you go and read my other site too, for you can learn how to play N64 on your computer, and even learn more about yours truly. The main focus of this page is the most recent version of the popular WarCraft 3 map Wintermaul Wars: Tournament Edition.

The Story and the Revisions....
People ask me all the time, why WMW? Well, because its fun and nobody ever did it right. This project started a long time ago, because I really loved wintermaul wars. I wanted a version with every race in it, then I was gonna be done. Yeah right, here I am still working on it after 2 years! It started out as WMW SuperSpeed Edition, and eventually blossomed into the Tournament Edition. The map had many versions, each incrementing in a whole value when a major change was introduced...

- The version 1 series was the next version to SuperSpeed v.Final and introduced specialty towers.
- The version 2 series was a resurrection to WMW TE v.Final.
- The version 3 series introduced a ton of new towers and builder spells.
- The version 4 series gives the creeps spells to cast on each other and player towers.
- The upcoming version 5 series will introduce enhanced speed, new spells, and much much more.

So yeah, every major revision I increase the whole number by 1, and any small fixes or revisions to that series it becomes the next incremented decimal. That is why the version numbers increase so fast because of the evolution it undergoes. As for now, enjoy the latest version!
