One of the most popular articles on this blog has always been my tutorial on how to hack an War3 autorefresh bot for Mac.

However, it’s still quite a clunky hack, and many commenters have been unable to get it work smoothly. Even I gave up on it when I upgraded to Leopard.

Introducing Warmonger

Warmonger is a Mac-like autorefresh bot for Warcraft III. It does that and only that, but it does it well, reliably and most importantly, natively.

Warmonger is completely free, too.

Download Warmonger

Using Warmonger is easy: Create a game on, switch to Warmonger and hit Refresh, get back to War3 and enjoy your autorefreshing game.

Warmonger knows to stop automatically when your game starts. Once it’s launched, you don’t even have to worry about it anymore. It really is that simple.

Does this work on anything below Leopard?

Tried to boot it on OS X 10.4.11, with no success.

Nope – I should’ve mentioned it but this requires Leopard. You can still try the old tutorial which was written on Tiger.

You’ll probably get banned for using this. Wouldn’t try it.

Autorefresh bots are perfectly legal by rules and have been used for years. There’s no risk involved.

Yeah, works great.
Bots just need a shorter delay to leave the game
And need banlist

Warmonger requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard minimum.

July 29th, 2009 at 5:48 pm

Awwww damnit. Think you can make one for lower? I use but it’s really slow

Tiger is getting old, I think it’s time to upgrade ;) . I don’t have any 10.4 install left to test on, so I’m afraid Leopard will remain the minimum.

How much is an upgrade :P

$129 on the Apple Store, although you may find it for cheaper on Amazon.

Can you write a delay reducer?? or some kind of LAN hostin 3rd party program..because people are sayin due to the mac’s parameters we can’t have 3rd party programs but this is obviously not true if this refresher works. btw i like it alot thx

Are you planning on releasing a Delay Reducer? If not, can you point me to any resources on how I can develop one?

I don’t know how you all understood how to set this up, I can’t seem to find the .config equivalent so I can insert my CD key/Ports/all that stuff. And seeing how there is not a bit about HOW to go about doing this….I’d be grateful if someone made a guide!

Mohammed murmurs
September 3rd, 2010 at 12:54 am

Yeah, I agree, this is awesome

but needs a delay reducer for user. bot system spends too much time in game before opening the slots

Would you like to link sites? I’ve been looking for another site with stuff to link with.

Can you upgrade the refresher? I have this same 1 for awhile and its getting annoying cause it has like 3 second in game-lobby delay.

May 16th, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Can we have the source code? It would be nice if I can do a single refresh using a keyboard shortcut when ever I want.
