To start playing on iCCup you only need a WarCraft III, iCCup launcher and an iCCup Account.
Your WarCraft III: Frozen Throne must be version v1.26a. This particular version is needed, because, for years we have been adding bug fixes and new features and those changes depended on this, particular, patch. You can have 2 separate versions, one with a latest patch and one for iCCup.
Now you are ready to join the fight. Here are the last steps so you can connect to the server and play DotA or lots of Custom Maps.
— Open launcher and set path to warcraft III exe and then click «Play Warcraft III»
— From Battle.net gateway — choose «The Abyss(ICCup)».
— Login with the account you've created on our site and start playing.
You begin at iCCup with the ranking of “D” with 1000 points. Winning matches will improve your points rating, and losing matches will do the opposite. Every 1000 points you win, you will improve once step in rank. The ranking system goes from D-, D, D+, C-,C, etc. This is a system long implemented by the Starcraft community to create a well balanced environment for players to play in and find players of similar skill.
