    The ability to play custom campaigns has been completely removed from Warcraft 3. Also, you can't play single player games offline anymore, you have to create a game in the lobby, which means you can't save or use cheat codes. Not being able to save makes the majority of single player maps unplayable. Also, right now, single player maps won't even launch for me at all. When I try to start them the game just boots me out.

    So, my favorite feature of Warcraft 3, playing and making single player maps, which I've put so many thousands of hours in, has just been flat out removed from my favorite game.

    Unbelievable.

    You are probably correct about the not being able to use cheats, since single player custom maps seemingly require being online now.

    As for custom campaigns, the functionality is still there in the editor if you open it up, so it will probably just be released in another patch. Keep in mind that one of the blizzard employees on hive, Kam, is a big fan of custom campaigns himself, so I am pretty sure custom campaign implementation is just being delayed.

    The release patch broke quite a bit of functionality of custom campaigns (which is also absurd since most of it worked in the last beta patch) so it's almost just as well nobody can see just how bad.

    I really hope this gets fixed. Custom Campaigns with Reforged models is the second big reason I bought this. I also want to make some Custom Campaigns for Reforged.

    The cynic in me is afraid they are intentionally crippling the single player experience so they can sell more skins for use in multiplayer customs.

    I think they can get sued for that. It was a feature in the original and they didn't mention they would remove it. They said all functionalities would remain. I mean I can understand removing WIP content that was never in the game but core functionalities?

    Maybe they get unlocked once you beat all the campaigns.

    Maybe it's released as unlockable, paid content ;)

    (Custom campaigns and offline single player I mean).

    Great, like 75% of my projects are custom campaigns. Should I despair yet?

    Think I'll despair.

    reforged? Remake?

    What a monumental downgrade.

    I said it back when they first started patching classic.

    Why the fuck didnt they leave ClassiC ALONE make a new stand alone game and new balancing.

    Its hilarious Current Blizzard aka the Game Developer I probably hate the most. Just destroyed my favorite game because they touched it 18 years later.

    The takes some fucking SKILL

    THANKS BLIZZARD

    They better fix that this week.

    Its unnacceptable that it launched this way missing perfectly working features.

    I don't know. I'm just trying to figure out what happened.

    I don't believe that custom campaigns will remain removed, all the functionality is still in the game. All that is lacking is the selection option. It wouldn't make sense to cripple such a big part of the game for no reason.

    If that is the case, I'd surely write it at the "known issues" thread or something.

    The campaign editor is still there so it might be added later (or they forgot to remove it...)

    I think (HOPE) it will be back with the first few patches.

    I just hope they won't try to make people host their campaigns on some Blizzard campaign repository where they are only available from a list or something.
