Reforged So... They flat out removed custom campaigns & single player maps from the game.

    Yeah maybe they later add a new entry to the known issue list: "the custom campaign editor button hasn't been removed yet" :razz:

    And to think I despaired at the new LotrO grind last night.

    Well done, Blizzard - you just 1-upped what I thought was the most out-of-touch move from a game company I've ever seen.

    Somehow, I don't think Reforged will have the 18 year legacy that Warcraft 3 had.

    Unbelievable. :(

    Most probably like StarCraft II Arcade.
    Are Reforged Custom Games not like that now?

    Speaking of despair. That makes me laugh a bit... In 2018 I called my project "Feral Despair". Well, jokes on me, I was right all along xD

    No, one can only open matches for maps inside your own map folder.

    the reforged campaigns are REALLY dumbed down on hard.

    The post game screen is atrocious You no longer see goldlost to upkeep or any resource info, You dont see units lost or which factions killed you NOPE

    Just How mana kills u got and how many buildings.....

    Ping son minimap for quests
    constant checkpoint saves
    you start with 4-6 more workers in most missions
    Example: Cult of the Damned Human 04
    You have 3 pesants normally. in Deforged edition You start this mission with NINE
    Enemies less aggressive
    Trees that block secret creeps and items were just deleted
    Items stack to 5 so you could enter March of the Scoruged with 10 scrolls of healing , and mana / HP pots for insane vendor gold at the start.
    Some enemy types removed {Prologue05 NO MURLOC SORC hero, NO Glaive cleave murloc units)

    Also if ANYONE played the 2nd prologue level OMG.

    That HELLSCREAM voice insert they did because they didnt want to call him Grom
    Like you have to listen to it

    I cringed.
    Voice overs were changed for sure Arthas giggled and it was a dead giveaway on Human mission 3. is this the new voice actor.

    I probably going to just install my disks and find a 1.29 installer somewhere after i finish these campaigns and uninstall B.net so my favorite game ever isnt destroyed. Because thats what blizzard did with reforged.

    The Sea witch the left a lvl 1 version of her on a innaccessable part of the Map Prologue05
    In Prologue 04 check the bottom left of map.

    I'm only on Human04 and I have to say this is a sloppy trainwreck.



    I dont know how everyone is feeling but these graphics aren't as timeless as Original Warcraft 3 18 YEARS ago. And all the removed features, and information, and game modes, it's like.

    What the fuck is going on. I actually broke my cheapo wireless mouse this morning when i threw it across room when i understood they removed custom campaigns.

    I had to see proof of this because it sounds so absurd and unnecessary and... it's true.

    @Anaxie Jesus. Why is every single game these days aimed at people with an iq below 80? I mean, even the suits at Blizzard must understand that an RTS is never going to appeal to the dumbest part of the population, right? Makes me think even more that they just wanted to milk another 40$ out of WoW players and don't care about the actual game Warcraft 3 in the slightest.

    Any way we can set Offline mode to default?

    Or better yet, only enable online mode for-- online play?

    Hey just FYI you can Download wc3 classic from the warcraft 3 PTR and play custom campaigns etc no bloody idea how long they will keep it up for download Blizzard Entertainment especially since theres a thread about it in official forum but i can confirmed i got on and played the frozen throne custom game on it... its the same as pre reforged launch from what i can tell. DL it and keep to play custom campaigns at least, much smaller file than the bloated POS reforged.

    Well, even if they did remove custom campaigns from the game it shouldn't be a big problem. A campaign doesn't necessary need to be in .w3n format. You can still play the campaign even if the maps are made separately and the Game cache will work just fine.

    The only downside of this however is that, if this is "truly" the case, then campaign makers will now be forced to seperate their campaign maps individually and import data from one map to another which will be a tiresome job for sure.

    @deepstrasz I'm not giving them ideas I'm just saying because I don't want campaign makers to feel discouraged and abandon their projects in case this becomes a real thing.
