    The multiplayer beta for Warcraft III: Reforged begins this week* with limited access to the orc and human races within 1v1 and 2v2 matchmaking. The undead and night elf races, and more game modes will be added in the weeks ahead.

    Invitations to the multiplayer beta will be sent out over the coming weeks. Initial invitations will go out in waves to those who have pre-purchased the Spoils of War edition of the game and subsequent waves of invitations will go to additional players, such as those who have pre-purchased the standard edition of Warcraft III: Reforged.

    The Spoils of War Edition
    In addition to access to the beta, owners of the Spoils of War edition get a few additional perks.

    Beyond the Meat Wagon mount in World of Warcraft; Thrall, Anub’arak, Jaina and Tyrande in Heroes of the Storm, and the Third War card back in Hearthstone, the Spoils of War edition also contains:

    The sad thing about it is that its 15 years too late.

    Aw shucks, man, guess Blizz just got the money nowadays to make use of such HD graphics from 15 years ago.

    I've watched Grubby's stream for a few minutes. A little sad that the pathing appears to have received no updates at all. :peasant-sad: A bit more smoothness would've been appreciated.

    They have stated in the past that the pathing will likely be kept as it is due to competitive multiplayer games i.e. surround tactics, unit positioning etc.

    It's funny that the company calls it a reimagining when it's still just a graphics change like but not as StarCraft:Remastered.

    Figured it couldn't be as smooth as SC2 due to gameplay balance reasons, to prevent the same problem that happened from SC1 to SC2. Still, it's sorta uncomfortable to see units get stuck on one another while marching freely.

    Spirit Walker is still being trained from the Tauren Totem. Great!! The stupidest thing in the recent patches. What's next? Dragonhawk Riders from Arcane Sanctums, Rifflemen from Workshop, Headhunters, Witch Doctors and Bat Riders from a Vodoo Louge?

    They also failed the release of SC:R because they didnt fix the svc "bug" when you rally point new svc into minerals it doesnt start to automine them. They maybe dont play the games themself and it makes me feel bad. It could be great game if the right person would tweak it a bit.

    You're saying the bug is still there?
    It's SCV by the way.

    Dude, I just tested melee on the latest update and none of the workers start harvesting minerals by themselves regardless whether you place the rally point on minerals by using the command or right clicking, regardless.
    It's not StarCraft II, it's Brood War.

    I thought they came directly from the High Elven Barracks?

    ED: Yep, it is the High Elven Barracks.

    Checked out some streams on Twitch. Old WC3R footage actually looks better.

    i see reforged is going to have the same 'accessory creep' like remastered starcraft, with the 'skins' and all.. kinda neat, actually, since we're talking about more models to mashup and take things from by modders
