hey there,

after holding out untill now, I finally caved and reforged. Is there a way to test maps on reforged without connecting to Bnet? as someone who mostly mods, this seems crazy and makes it very annoying to trigger and de-bug maps when it takes plural minutes just to open and test a map. Is there any way around this, and if not is it on the list of things to ask blizz to fix?

thanks

I wouldn't expect it. It's just the way their DRM works.

I would heartily recommend you to refund this product. If you still have the classic keys, there is no benefit to pay for reforged graphics, and reward Blizzard for this atrocity.

For testing maps offline, turn off your internet connection and hit test map. Once you reach the game menu, an error window might pop up. Ignore it and hit the offline button. This worked for me. It is just two button clicks more than usual.

That doesn't help, because it will still attempt to find a connection (lion's gate sequence), which will take exactly as long as if you were connected to the internet.
