    Honestly Blizzcon 2019 kinda killed the hype for me, but I must say, man do the Undead look awesome. I like everything about them. They totally look scary, unlike the screenshots. The only thing is why are there eggs in a Boneyard? I know this is a fantasy universe, and that nothing makes sense, but that is just totally ridiculous. Frost Wyrms use Faerie Dragon animations...ah well.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you tbh. It seems they didn't even add a different skin for high elf and blood elf footman and archer. As a consolation those inconsistencies were made on purpose for gameplay reasons. They wanted the orcs in Undead Campaign to look as similar as possible to melee orcs, they wanted to fight full melee humans in Undead final, the fel orcs in Outland as close to Grom's fel orcs etc..., I'm honestly more bothered with Red Dragons in Outland, then the Kodos. At this point it would be wise to expect that the Campaign will look something like this (just with undead and slightly more polished with the engine and stuff)

    To be 100% honest I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. For a number of reasons:
    1. If this was the case, Blizzard would have already made and official statement, cause of a lot of angry people in official forums.
    2. If they really had those cutscenes they would say something like:"And there are dozens of redone cutscenes just waiting for you! All the cutscenes were redone like the ones in "The Culling", and we are very please to announce!" They wouldn't keep quite about it, cause it would be a huge plus for them.
    3. With no new voice acting it would be extremely difficult to synchronize everything. They could barely do it with one cutscene, let alone dozens, if not hundreds.
    To me all this seems like they were cut indeed, but there is also the possibility that they don't know themselves yet whether they were cut or are doing them, however I doubt that. At this point the best thing to do is listen to your self, see how things turn out in the final version, or when campaigns reach the Beta, and vote with your wallet.

    Kodos don't make sense but red dragons do since in WcII Alexstrasza was under orc custody and obviously there could have been slave red dragons after the dragon queen has been set free.

    No, when Alexstrasza was freed, the power to contain red dragons was lost, and dragons are too powerful to be held as slaves. Further more, no Red Dragonflight were ever taken to Outland, the dragons that did were the last remnants of Deathwing's Black Dragonflight, many of whom have been sold as slaves by Deathwing.

    You mean, like post WcII material?
    Who cares. Dragons were raised from infancy. They became one with the Horde. During Beyond the Dark Portal, the orcs probably just took some of the red dragons there and made new roosts on top of Deathwing's black dragons. Mind you, there was no such colour or faction difference between dragons in WcII. Dragons were dragons.

    I want to know what the Reforged editor looks like.
    I hope it would be with better design and more options and tools.
    + full Lua support with line numbering, keyword coloring, word prediction, list of functions.

    I also want to see that they fixed the problem in trigger editor with nesting windows.

    I want the skill editor to be already added with built in scalings like max health, current health, missing health, stats, damage, etc. to make it easier for map makers.

    And I wish gameplay constant would add range indicators for like shockwave-based skills or skill-shots

    so is there a ladder on war3 reforged release? I mean I didn't pay attention to all words from blizzcon war3 reforged panel 2019, but the video about it from YouTube was deleted. The sentence "so is there a ladder on war3 reforged release?" refers to whether it comes from the words of devs.
    I did see grubby's comments (that the ladder will be there) from his discord channel after seeing back2warcraft's messages about the ladder won't be there, but from my impression back2warcraft gathers people's personal comments n' messages and then just talked about it rather than the messages from the dev? (ok I know that the assumption is bad, (what do I mean by this sentence is that I don't watch his video about the ladder-not-being-released stuffs) but I never watch back2warcraft's video about the ladder not being released for that I watched back2warcraft's previous videos, and I was like "oh so this guy has no evidential stuffs" (from what I saw he just posted about the people's comments n' just talked about it) but I don't trust any personal comments, it is their doing, so (note: I know what kind of person grubby is)
    does the messages about the ladder comes from the devs? sorry about that I didn't hear clearly, n' now I'm asking this question

    re-edited: 12:33, so there is the ladder by the devs, nice one

    I wish it was delayed more though, so art might have changed
