    What would happen for those players who did not buy Warcraft 3: Reforged? Will the community will split into half (not the hive itself) and the non reforged players will not be productive? (Like modelling for old models and any form of old models of Warcraft 3, you name it).


    This is my first created thread on Hive.

    Personally, I'm going to keep producing models for WC3: Classic

    Reforged looks like a graphics card melting gimmick to me

    Keep in mind, Reforged is not a different game. People who buy reforged will be able to switch out to HD graphics/lighting/shadows for all pre-exiting wc3 models/icons. The game is the same, so people who do not buy reforged will still get updates every time there are new patches.

    The only way Reforged will exclude non-reforged players is if map makers use models that are newly created for Reforged, and do not have a wc3 classic equivalent. So, for example, using all the alternate dreadlord models in reforged for custom maps will not exclude classic players, since they will just see the normal dreadlord unit in game when they play the relevant custom map. The exclusion will only occur when models such as those fancy Stratholme models that just do not have any conversion/equivalent with normal wc3 are used.

    In terms of artstyle clashes, I recently played custom maps on reforged beta, and the bird's eye perspective for normal custom maps means the quality of models difference is not really clear from a distance, so people do not need to worry too much about custom models from hiveworkshop not fitting against Reforged quality/artstyle.

    @tulee not sure how it'll work yet. Currently, maps saved with the Reforged editor cannot be played with 1.31.1.

    “Reforged editor" is currently 1.32, and most patches that introduce significant features often make it so saving a map makes it incompatible with older versions (1.31.1).

    Supposedly they will be releasing the ability to switch to classic graphics in the next beta patch, and then it will be possible to confirm or deny the issues described above.
