DAL Logo
This is the official website of Warcraft Darkness And Light, DAL (or Battle of Shadows in US).
The game has re-created into Warcraft III version based on original DAL Online gameplay. The original game service has terminated since 2008 and its official website was completely wiped off. Some information can still be found in MMOsite. To be honest I think it was one of the best real time strategy game after DotA due it's unique gameplay system and has various interesting maps, not just 3 lanes map craps that you normally see in most AoS games. Although not all maps were released back then (only First Blood, Bridgehead and Frontier), there are also some co-op campaign maps that I never got the chance to try. It was a complete let down when DAL announced to close its game service and this is why a custom Darkness And Light map for Warcraft III is here, a memorial to the game if you like to call it that way. This custom map remake for Warcraft III is completely developed by myself from scratch with the help from my buddy, RailKill. More details can be found below.

Brief history of Darkness And Light Online

Battle of Shadows (formerly Darkness and Light or DAL, but not to be confused with the MMORPG, Dark and Light) was a free MMORPG developed by N-Log Inc (a south korean company). and published by GameOn. Due to some unknown reasons, Darkness and Light terminated all its SEA services (forums, website, etc.) and the game servers on April 30, 2008. This, as well as CDC USA's termination of their North American service in September 2007, is believed to be due to financial issues within N-Log Soft, the developer.
