WarCraft III takes the individual combat and interactive environments found in role-playing games and combines them within a competitive strategic environment. It puts players in command of smaller parties of heroes and troops. They adventure and do battle in a dynamic world of living towns, wandering monsters, characters and quests, while simultaneously devising strategies to defeat their enemies.
