- PATCH 1.04

- Many minor changes were made to many maps due to the balance changes made in
patch 1.03 and patch 1.04. Some examples include:
(4) Lost Temple - Added more shallow water to the islands. Center creep camp
is a bit harder. Added Ogre Magi to the corner Ogre creep camps.
(6) Moonglade - Reduced all creep camps approximately 2 levels.
(8) The Crucible - All start locations should now be very similar, close to
trees with enough room to build. All Goblin Merchant creep camps are
now farther off the main path.
(10) Dustwallow Keys - Fixed the choke point in the bottom left. Moved
Razormane creeps off the main paths.
(12) Ice Crown - Fixed the creep levels so that all camps are equal.

NOTES: Replays are incompatible between major game revisions. (1.03 replays
cannot be viewed with the 1.04 version of Warcraft III.) Custom save games will
not load from versions 1.03 and below.
