The Launch

Pudge Wars v0.20

With the public release of Pudge Wars comes a new update. Countless new items have been added, the vision has been reworked and the map has been remade from scratch. It is now much closer to the original map in terms of size, layout and design. You can find the complete changelog here.

The future

As always, we will continue to work on and update Pudge Wars. Our goal is to achieve 100% parity with the original Warcraft 3 Pudge Wars. We're still long ways from that, but once we get there we will start to balance it ourselves and add new content.

Can I test the mod?

You can play what's out on D2Moddin and we'll patch things through as we finish them.

Can I have the source code?

Right now we're not releasing the source code. It's too big of a liability without official Valve support.

How can I help?

We got it covered. Our team is made up of 2 coders, a mapper and an artist. We don't need anything else at the moment.

Is this made by Valve, like Diretide?

Not at all. Although this is a mod for a Valve game, it is completely user made, aside from Valve assets.

Will I be able to play this directly from the Dota 2 client?

Not yet, if ever. We have had no contact with Valve through this so we can't be sure what they will or won't do.

I want to make my own mod, how can I start?

The best place to start is right here. This has links to everything you might need.
