"Happy Holloween!"(Candy War 2004)
The Candy War was a war game fought between two players ,one playing as Alliance and the other as the Horde, in the official Blizzard scenario map for Warcraft III called Extreme Candy War 2005. The object of the game was to crush the opponent's Candy Mages who channeled an invulnerable shield around their Candy Vault.
Extreme Candy War 2005 is the latest version of Blizzard's Halloween map where Alliance and Horde fight it out on the battlefield. Fans of World of Warcraft will undoubtedly feel at home as ECW '05's heroes are based off their respective classes. The object is to crush your opponent's Candy Mages who channel an invulnerable shield around their Candy Vault. Once the Candy Mages are down, destroy their Candy Vault to win! This year's version features updated hero abilities, new items, and faster paced gameplay.
Winning strategies are heavily reliant on teamwork rather than individual effort. For example, it is extremely important to know when to push down certain lanes in small groups to eliminate strategic targets, such as a farm to decrease your opponent's aeon mob spawning or a tower that is hamstringing your efforts. A word of caution: beware the Extreme items and remember to upgrade your units!
