    I've encountered many people who have wanted to play WC3 Banjoball, but did not have access to a retail copy of the game, so they never did. The good news is that now there is a way to play Warcraft III for free in under 10 minutes.

    Step 1 (Installing the game):
    1. Download Warcraft III RoC & TFT from here
    2. Install Warcraft III RoC & TFT after you finish downloading it
    3. Install the latest patch version: http://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/war3x/patches/pc/War3TFT_127a_English.exe
    4. Exit Warcraft III.

    Step 2 (Installing Eurobattle):
    Eurobattle is the private server you have to connect to in order to play Banjoball for free.
    1. Download the installer from here. If you don't have Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 installed, you will have to install that as well
    2. Install Eurobattle after you have downloaded it (the installation will not work if you Warcraft III open, make sure it is closed)
    3. Create and activate an account at http://app2.eurobattle.net/accounts/

    Step 3 (Playing on Eurobattle):
    1. Go to your Eurobattle folder and click on "xpam.exe"
    2. Click "Normal Gateway" if you don't have GProxy installed (if you have it installed, you'll know)
    3. Click Battle.Net and logon to your account
    4. Click "Enter Chat" on the bottom right
    5. Type /join Banjo
    6. Wait for the hosting bot to create games, then click "Custom Games" (hotkey alt + g) and type in the game name to join

    What do? Installer v6 is asking me for 1.27a, how do I update the portable version?

    UPDATE: I skimmed through the files and found this in the folder

    No dice.

    Try running WC3 (not through Eurobattle) and hitting "Battle.Net". Does it automatically patch for you then? I forgot that Blizzard released a new patch recently (for the first time in literally years) so the torrented version of WC3 will not be the latest one by default.

    Edit: The correct way to update your WC3 version is by manually installing the latest patch, which can be found here: http://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/war3x/patches/pc/War3TFT_127a_English.exe
