This week's spotlight map is Cube Defense by CordialSpam. This is a very fun map, especially if you love Tower Defense style maps and have a knack for "mazing."
Warring Marines have taken over Icecrown Glacier. Command your bomber force to destroy your opponent's town while scrambling to defend your own.

Download Bomber Command, a new bonus map for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.

Our spotlight map this week is Run Kitty Run, a simple, but fun map of a feline persuasion. Download it and give it a whirl here.

We have also made some graphical changes to the Mod Support site.

  • Hall of Fame: Where the most prestigious maps will be added.
  • Spotlight: The most recent spotlight map will be separated and put on top of past spotlights. A icon will also be placed next to spotlight maps that have entered the Hall of Fame.
  • Contest box: There is now a contest box under the "Spotlight Maps" section, full of information and coverage on current contests.

    Blizzard is proud to unveil the Mod Support website. Ever since Warcraft II first launched, the community has been creating its own incredible maps for the Warcraft series. With Warcraft III, we have seen even more creative, original, and technically impressive uses of the World Editor. The Mod Support site is being created to give something back to the community. We will offer contests, resources, designer journals, and of course, proper recognition to those outstanding authors for creating some of the greatest mods for Warcraft III.

    We will be working with several leading sites in the community to make sure no maps are missed. These sites have been very gracious and helpful, and we would like to give them the credit they deserve.

    Check back for more information on contests, news, and some of the best maps ever made for Warcraft III!
