Warcraft 3 players rejoice! The wait is over! Patch 1.35 has finally been released and it is packed with exciting new features and improvements!

This patch includes some long-awaited features such as Custom Campaigns, Map Pool updates, Leaderboard fixes, Season Roll updates, and a major balance update. This patch is going to be a big deal for the Warcraft 3 community as it brings back fan-favorite features as well as opens up new possibilities for players and modders to push the boundaries of what is possible in the game. One of the most notable additions in this patch is the reintroduction of custom campaigns, which allows players to create their own unique scenarios and story-lines. This feature was highly requested by the community and its return is sure to be a hit among map creators.

But that's not all, the patch also includes various bug fixes, balance changes and performance improvements that will make the game smoother and more enjoyable for many players. Overall, patch 1.35 is a significant step towards restoring Warcraft 3 and it's exciting to see the game continue to be supported and developed even after all these years. Players are encouraged to download the patch and start exploring the new features and improvements for themselves. Please post your feedback and experience with the latest update. Let the development team know that we are watching closely. See the list of some of the Known Issues at the bottom of this page, and report any other you find.

Finally, the patch includes a number of bug fixes, addressing long-standing issues that have been plaguing the game for years. This includes fixes for crashes, desyncs, and other technical problems that have been affecting players and map makers.

While far from perfect (considering patch 1.33 and 1.34) the release of patch 1.35 is a promising sign that Warcraft III has not been forgotten by Blizzard Entertainment and that the company is still committed to supporting the game. This is great news for the dedicated community of players who have stuck with the game through the years and will give new hope that the game will continue to be supported in the future. Patch 1.35 is a major update that will bring a renewed sense of excitement to the Warcraft III community.

If you're a map creator who has been away from the game for a while, now is the perfect time to get back into it. The release of patch 1.35 has breathed new life into the game and has opened up new opportunities for map creators to showcase their work. So dust off your World Editor, start creating and be a part of the Warcraft III community once again.

Overall, the release of patch 1.35 is great news for map creators, and it gives them the motivation they need to start creating new campaigns and maps, and share them with the community - which are always looking for new and exciting maps and campaigns to play.

The Warcraft III community is eager to see what you can create, so don't miss this opportunity to show your skills and talents.

Warcraft III: Reforged Patch Notes
Version 1.35.0 Build 19844
January 19, 2023​

Patch 1.35.0 features:
  • Custom Campaigns
  • Balance update
  • Map Pool updates
  • Leaderboard fixes
  • Season Roll updates
  • Additional improvements and bug fixes
Thank you to all community content creators for creating new maps and updating old maps!

Custom Campaigns​

Players can now download Custom Campaigns to play or create their own.

  • Some Custom Campaigns can be played using either Reforged or Classic art.
  • Reworked frontend menu. Campaigns are now located under the “Single Player” menu.
  • Custom campaigns now track the difficulty a mission was completed on.
  • “Load saved game” menu can now reload custom campaign save files.
  • Added informational prompt to show users where to install campaign files to.
  • Added “Is Cinematic” option to the campaign editor to change campaign buttons to use the camera thumbnail instead of difficulty progression.
  • Added campaign thumbnail preview support to Reforged.
  • Added ambient sound support to Reforged.
  • Added WebM support for campaign backgrounds. For legacy custom campaigns that previously used 3D backgrounds, a WebM can be used to replace that background in the WebUI.
  • Custom campaign list menu now auto-refreshes upon resuming game window focus.
  • Added support for custom movies in Warcraft III/Movies. This is file format dependent, a VP9 encoded AVI file, with an MP3 for audio in Warcraft III/Movies/Audio.
  • Added Friends presence support for Custom Campaigns.
  • Updated default campaign backgrounds to reforged style.
  • Added user presence for Custom Campaigns
  • Added rich/color formatted text support to custom campaign menus.

Ranked Play​

  • The Season will roll on January 19, 2023 when Patch 1.35.0 goes live. We initially plan for this season to last one year, but we may adjust the end date based on player feedback.
  • MMR for all races and modes will be reset during the season rollover.
  • Players will begin the new season with placement matches.
  • Updated the Map Pool in 1v1,2v2,4v4 and FFA.
  • Leaderboard caching has been updated to be more responsive.
  • The Leaderboard will now update correctly.

Balance​

This balance update began with a wide range of changes the team wished to test – some more experimental than others. Our approach to this patch was to first take a look at various community feedback with the goal of diversifying strategy and reducing frustration. We then watched and read a community posts, and we played a great deal of multiplayer matches on the ladder with player feedback in mind. We then analyzed game data.

To find out what ultimately would work, we put many changes into a PTR build as early as possible, and then playtested and calibrated further.

Regarding the Siege Engine rework, we wished to experiment with giving the unit an alternative role other than merely killing buildings (in 1v1). Ultimately, it ended up overlapping too much with other Human units, and due to the loss of its Fortify armor, became less unique. We may revisit the Siege Engine at another time.

We want to thank all the community members who put their time and energy into providing feedback during the PTR. We read your online posts and watched your videos, and found it all very helpful.
