Warcraft 3 Patch 1.22

In June 2008 Blizzard updated Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne to Patch version 1.22a!
What is new in WC3 Patch 1.22a?
Patch 1.22a is a Warcraft 3 Balance Patch. Human, Undead and Night Elf got some slight fixes and there are 4 new maps added to the pool. ^^ Also there are bug fixes and some game improvements.
Warcraft 3 Patch 1.22a also brought a brand new ladder reset. We all just love ladder resets. All ladders like 1on1, 2on2, 3on3 and 4on4 RT (Random Team) and FFA are reseted to zero!
This means you can enter the new top 1000 players fast. And because of that many players start again to play as much as they can to belong to the best WC3 playes of the world! Read on…
