    I'll wait 'til paycheck and then it's time to relive the campaigns again.

    Also would be cool if there was a version with all the bugs and weird AI pathing fixed. Just to see how it would play out.
    (Not Starcraft 2)

    Yep. I saw it. (On the SC:R website. Not the stream)

    But no Warcraft 3 on Blizzard App.

    Congrats, Blizzard.

    Best news about this is that they will likely start focusing on WC3. Now we will see if they take the remaster path, the update path or the expansion path for our beloved game.

    Sounds good to me, E_B_D. I'm better with the remaster path for Warcraft 3.

    Remember that D2 is in the same boat as WC3 though. This is why I don't say "Warcraft is next!" because D2 has also been being frequently updated. Time will tell.

    Seeing as people pay 5€ for one skin on one character in LoL I doubt 17€ for one reskinned/reanimated game is much ;P

    That said, I wont buy it because I am biased towards shitty graphics. Yes wc3 graphics are way better than SC, even more so with mods.

    It wouldn't play out well. The proof of that is StarCraft II. No one ever realized (and Blizzard probably did too late), but the biggest change from SC1 to SC2 were not the new techtrees. It was the pathing system.

    In SC1, units have a hard time clustering. In SC2, clustering is the norm. That's why SC1 Siege Tanks could deal 70 dmg/hit and cost 100 gas (against 35/50 in Wings of Liberty for 125 gas), while Psionic Storm dealt 114 dmg (14 damage per sec) instead of the 80 dmg (10 dps) it does in SC2, and people are still ranting endlessly about High Templars in the upcoming major SC2 patch, as they did about Siege Tanks in Wings of Liberty.

    Couple this with the other pathing traits (units getting stuck, deaccelerating abnormally, etc) and you have a game that plays considerably different.

    Different yes and I understand that the fans did not want to fix those things for the game.
    However..
    I'm saying it would be cool to see how a version with those things fixed would play out. While still keeping the original gameplay in the standard version.
    Yes, a lot of the skill needed in starcraft would be removed, but maybe it would open to other areas.
    Like more drops, more crazy micro, things we haven't seen yet.

    I don't recommend anyone spending their 15$ for a graphical overhaul. Those who brought the original game basically threw their 20$ into air, it's a disgrace for them to make cash out of an 20 year old game.

    The limited selection, horrible unit pathing are still there. Campaign single-player is boring, same repeat "kill all" missions, you spend 30 minutes creating an army and doing it for the entirety of a single mission. Brood War campaign is a nightmare for normal players who don't micro or obsess over their APM count.

    Multi player is off-limits to new comers or casual players, you should stay away from it completely.

    Star Craft was a great game in it's time but today.. it sucks. The only good thing about it is story and music.

    Don't waste your money and just play the free version.
