5 Most Popular BattleNet Warcraft custom maps

The 5 Most Popular BattleNet Warcraft custom maps

A few weeks ago, we released the Top 5 hottest custom maps for 2008.
Due to popular demand from our readers, we will now be releasing the top 5 most popular Battle.Net Warcraft custom maps today.

Take note that only the popularity is being scaled here. Balance, design and gameplay are not taken into account.
(Side note: Most of those who made it to the list rank high in those categories anyway)

Without much further ado, Atchucan Gaming presents the Top 5 BattleNet Warcraft customs.


DotA retains the number one spot as Icefrog and Pendragon continually enjoy an active DotA community. The recent announcement of former DotA modder, Guinsoo, about a massive online game called League of Legends shows us how far Aeon of Strife has brought us in terms of gaming.

Island Defense

Island Defense silently makes it to the list as the inhabitants of the Island continue defending themselves from the dreaded Titans. What's a better way to enjoy a vacation in a lovely tropical island than running away from the Titans?
P.S. Eternal slavery is not an option.

Footmen Frenzy

You can't truly call yourself a Warcraft gamer until you've joined the frenzy of controlling armies razing the other Barracks to the ground.

Enfos Team Survival

You can't go wrong splashing a Pandaren on your map preview screen as Enfo's Team Survival gets into the list. Have fun defending your base from those mobs that continually get stronger as the game goes on.

Element TD

Element TD has always been the banner map for the tower defense genre and it stays on the list with the Beta map they released earlier this year. The question is... When are they gonna release the post-beta version?

Note: Only Defense of the Ancients has an accurate standing of being Number One, the rankings of the maps following it are debatable.

Browser Game: The Reincarnation

The Reincarnation (slash ArchMage slash War of The Mages) is a text-browser game that uses the turn based system. In this game, you play as one of the mages in war havocked land called Terra.

To start things off, the first thing you do is to register an account at their site. This step reincarnates a certain mage into the battlefield that you get to control.
You can choose among 5 types of magic specialty namely:


And every 5 minutes or so (depending on the server you joined), you earn a turn. You can use these turns to: explore lands, build structures for your country, attacked other countries and research more powerful magic.

As you grow to become more powerful and climb up the rankings, other mages might start attacking your country to capture your lands, pillage your economy, KILL your mage (which takes you out of the game forcing you to reincarnate a new account)
or simply just for the heck of it.

To counter this, you have to erect fortresses, recruit units and summon creatures to beef up your defenses. Richer mages can take part in the bidding for powerful units called Heroes in the Black Market.

A season's length depends on the decisions that the highest ranked mages make.
If 5 different type of mages successfully cast Armageddon, this signals the last days of the season and all hell breas lose as players become desperate to be part of the HALL OF FAME.

I played a decent Red (Eradicaton)
Summoning all those Red Dragons was sure a lot of fun!

Reincarnate your own mage at:

Atchucan notes: The last time I played this game was back in 2002. There have been some changes but the basic concepts have remained intact.

Wario Land: Shake it demolishes Youtube

What happens if you upload a Wario Land video on Youtube?

Game Paused.

Who's Wario? What's a Youtube?

Wario is the evil counterpart of Nintendo's Mario.

Youtube is a website that specializes in online video sharing. It is a great example of user-generated content on the Web.
Game resumed.

This is what happens when you post Nintendo Wii gameplay videos online.

You know what I just found out?
Youtube's website has a very shaky foundation. hehe...

Best seen using the Mozilla Firefox browser.

Atchucan Article: Girls and Gaming

Gaming isn't limited to boys. In fact, according to the NPD group, a research firm based in the US, females accounted for 21 percent in last year's total sales growth. Due to the the influx of non-violent casual games , more and more women have gotten into the world of gaming. With the huge growth potential that this niche offers, companies like Sony have started targeting the female audience by releasing female friendly game titles.

But that does not mean that girls are limited to the casual games genre. In fact, South Korean gamer Tossgirl has made a name for herslf by beating both both boys and girls alike in the classic RTS, Starcraft.

Taking all these things into consideration, we at Atchucan Gaming have decided to start publishing exclusive interviews with our Atchucan lady gamers. Not only that, we would also be doing Atchucan GamerGirl features about your favorite female gamers.
