Due to the language barrier, the Chinese and Western Warcraft 3 scene have been segregated for the most part. It's been hard to understand the thought process of Chinese players, and at times quite cumbersome to get Chinese news and interviews translated into English. This summer GornLan Harbor (GLH) started translating Chinese videos and articles into English, making the consumption of Chinese Warcraft 3 content much more accessible.
I've had the pleasure of interviewing the small GornLan Harbor team, and feature them in the Content Creator Highlight!
Walter qualified for WGL last weekend and it is safe to say that he will be the most unknown player for most of the Warcraft 3 fans in Shanghai.
Unknown in Asia and barely active in European tournaments, he is a local leader of the Latin American scene.
After his qualification, we had an interview. Answers were provided in Spanish then translated to English.
Netease, the official Asian Warcraft 3 server, has announced a change to their map pool: Ancient Isles and Turtle Rock will be removed and replaced with Concealed Hill and Northern Isles. The impact of this map rotation is quite spectacular as it affects both the most competitive ladder and the map pool of premier tournaments, such as WGL W2018. More broadly this will also have a major impact on the Western scene.
In this article, I have consulted with a melee map maker to hear his thoughts on the new maps, which are being rotated in and out.
