    Howdy Friends,

    We hope everyone that didn’t have weekend plans will join us - especially Mac players - to test this update. Release is on the horizon, and we appreciate your contributions to the process. Go team.

    • Performance optimizations and stability improvements for menus and gameplay
    • Locale fonts updated

    • All locales have functioning voice over and portrait animations again
    • Classic camera restored
      • Dev Note: The camera position moved by ~10% when we started drawing the game fullscreen to support the new console UI - the original game stopped drawing where it met the original UI. We’re working on adjustments to the washed out team colors making Wisps or similar elements with transparency faint in classic.


    Beta Known Issues List

    • Early game should no longer have a crash with no error
    • Volcano effect should no longer cause huge hitch or crash
    • Game screens should load more than audio
    • We’re still investigating the desync that seems most associated with LegionTD

    Modern Times Group properties ESL and DreamHack have entered a three-year strategic agreement with Blizzard Entertainment.

    StarCraft II and Warcraft III: Reforged will receive their own ESL Pro Tour circuits with respective prize pools of $1.8 million and over US $200,000 in 2020 as part of the deal.

    As a replacement of the StarCraft II World Championship Series, the ESL Pro Tour StarCraft II will have tournaments in at least four continents. The qualifying format for the circuit will be based off of the existing WCS system, with the first season being made up of seven tournaments: two IEM events, four DreamHack stops, and a Masters Championship at IEM Katowice in 2021.

    Sebastian Weishaar, CPO at ESL discussed the deal in a release:

    We feel extremely honored to establish a new home for RTS esports fans and be responsible for two of the most prestigious esports titles of all time. ESL and DreamHack are deeply rooted within Blizzard esports games and have built ecosystems around them for years now. Tying both StarCraft II and Warcraft III into the ESL Pro Tour narrative is our contribution to these passionate communities and will provide both titles with a promising platform to continue writing esports history.

    The ESL Pro Tour WarCraft III: Reforged has also been announced, comprised of one ESL competition and three DreamHack events – all working towards a championship tournament to be held later in 2020. The newly-announced ESL Pro Tours will have weekly ESL Open Cups to support the amateur communities of each title.

    J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment also commented on the landmark agreement:

    We are so proud that StarCraft II and Warcraft III are home to two of the most passionate, storied and devoted communities in esports history. Both ESL and DreamHack have been long-standing partners for our esports, and we want to give our players, talent, content creators and fans the stability inherent in a long-term relationship, keeping these communities thriving for yearsto come.

    As you may have heard...

    The drums of war thunder once again. Warcraft III: Reforged - the recreation of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne - will be available at

    3 p.m. PST on January 28, 2020.

    Blizzard said: blizzarrow.gif

    Though we’ve been working hard to get Reforged in your hands before the end of the year, as we started approaching the finish line, we felt we’d need a little extra development time for finishing touches. As always, our goal is to honor the high standards you hold us to.

    We’re looking forward to kicking off whole new era of Warcraft III, and we can’t wait to face off with your mighty armies online starting January 28!

    Howdy Friends,

    The time for custom games in Reforged Beta has arrived. There will be bugs. Custom games are a complicated marriage of your creativity and the engine’s cantankerous habit of rejecting that which does not please it. So, say it with me now, “There will be bugs.”

    We’ve put great energies into addressing crashes, desyncs, and conditions that destroy gameplay, but there are millions of maps that have utilized triggers in billions of ways. Can I get a, “There will be bugs”?

    The purpose of the beta is to speed the process of getting this game ready, and we appreciate everyone who is gutting this out with us. We expect this first deploy to expose a lot of good data. Data that will direct our efforts toward the preservation of this game’s great history - and bright future. At the risk of being redundant, there will be…


    • Custom games
    • Replays
    • Full map pools

    We’re starting custom games on a Monday morning to give us the optimal amount of time to find and fix problems. We expect to patch aggressively.
