    I wonder if there's gonna be graphical updates ..

    That's what I initially thought the title meant.

    Could be, that's why I was hoping for an Engine update. Or they'll remake everything and use another engine...

    Hmmmm... I'm not sure if I'll be happy or not... It does seem nice to have it "upgraded" but then the idea of it might be detrimental to the current wc3... not that I play much wc3 anymore but it just seems a bit of negative too...

    Nothing about it is negative and both versions will still be available.

    I know but since there will be a better one then it's likely that people will go there...

    yeah, and they might overrevamp it that it works only on upper-mid to higher-end comps

    But WC3 still runs brilliantly on modern systems, it doesn't need an upgrade.

    It has a ton of issues on the Mac and it could really use an update to BattleNet 2.0. Wc3's connection is horrible compared to Sc2, D3, and WoW. LAN is good, but I would like to see an improvement in BNet (especially would like to see some clean-up/bot fixes).

    ----

    It would be great if they made an update to wc3. And I would really, really love to see wc1 and wc2 on modern OS's, even if it doesn't have a graphical update. DOSBox is fine, but it is a hassle.

    Tell that to W8 users who some of which are suffering from an inability to play on BattleNet...

    In any case, it sounds like they will give them a re-compile and dependency upgrade. Maybe they will be getting a bunch of interns to do this as it sounds like that kind of level (short projects, with very possible and easy to prove results).

    Do not expect any bug fixes, except for cross platform compatibility and maybe the odd critical one. This is a port, not a remake and ports are famous for keeping 90% or more of the bugs present in their originals. Frankly they should open source them and turn them into teaching resources, I am sure many game design students would love projects which revolve around improving their beloved childhood games.

    My big question is related to WC3... Will the upgraded version be a free upgrade for people who already own it? I mean, will I just need to attach my WC3 keys to my 2.0 account and download the upgraded client or must I purchase WC3 again?

    I really hope they the ladder becomes playable, and Blizzard starts banning hackers again :)
    SC2 melee games are so boring compared to the ones in WC3, so i really want to switch back.

    Win8 is such a not-so-stable OS anyways...

    I was not aware of any stability issues with Windows 8, especially seeing how similar it is to 7 with regards to its kernel.

    Maybe we will see Android and other version of these games? Imagine playing WC3 on a smart phone or tablet, and yes I am pretty confident modern ones are more than capable of it.

    That would be interesting. Although, I still feel like gaming on a tablet is weird (especially for something as micro-intense as wc3). :p It would definitely work and be cool though, especially with multi-finger gestures.

    But anyway--this link might give some hope to the subject. There was a recent job posting. There are some floating rumors that it might be about the wc1/wc2/wc3 remake they hinted at at Blizzcon. :)

    It's Blizzard, so they won't open source it and will very likely charge for it (£9.99 or something?) :(
