    Of course they will Micro the game.

    Hello, I never really posted here, just lurked, but I am very exited about the remaster.
    But imo it's pretty sad to see a community that's almost as old as me start to get seperated because of some disagreements about it.
    So I made a crappy little mouse-drawn comic about it.

    That concept can burn in oblivion.

    We'll see how it goes. Can't put our judgement completely yet. 2019 is the decisive year then for us warcraft 3 fans.

    Do you think they could add new races and/or new campaigns (even if I doubt) in the future ?

    Ahah ! Really nice Petabik ! ;)

    Grubby said you can play the Old campaigns when he was talking about layout and changes like mini bosses on his livestream playing reforged.

    so lets hope thats exactly as it sounds.

    Also watched malganis die twice and drop a Greater mana then a ring of Prot +3

    so campaign random item drops? I hate RNG :(

    I'm glad :D

    Ditto. Same reason why I never bought or played WoW.

    (By the way, @Bribe, you could use this reforged version as an excuse to introduce your kid to Warcraft III ;D)

    This is a sleazy money grab. It's a visual update that costs you 30$. You can buy an actual real game for that price. No, I am not talking about about a visual improvement addition to a decade-old game I am talking about a real game. Pay real money to buy something that you probably already paid for many years ago. This is akin to modders selling a wacraft 2 styled game made using the warcraft 3 engine and charging full price for it... nah what am I saying the engine in this case is actually different.

    It's funny because now they've shown that they started updating the game again I thought of buying it. I had the game bought on release but the CD got lost so I've been playing it on GameRanger for a while and thought I'd join the official club of players. Turned out I was a day too late! Warcraft 3 is now removed from the store - replaced by this... Serves me right for trying to buy their game huh? It used to be 20$ for both the WC3 and the expansion and now it's 30$. 20$ for the games 10$ just because they can fleece you.

    I for one have no intention of being fleeced for nothing. If I wanted better visuals with the same stale gameplay I'd download a mod. I refuse to pay for their sleazy scheme of robbing people over a 16 year old unchanged game which was only made as big as it is by independent map-makers working for free.

    rofl not a visual update isnt even the main focus

    its a remake at this point entirely different game. Go watch the stratholme level

    point me to a direction where I can buy an RTS game in 2018 that will have over 60 quality playable campaign missions which most of which are going to probably be entirely redone maps.

    If the campaign maps are redone from scratch entirely Wc3 Reforged is essentially 8 possibly 9 if the DO add the Demo Campaign. Completely new Warcraft Camapaigns.

    Same Story Vastly different level design.

    Closest Comparison is the Resident Evil 1/2 to this scenario.

    Ahem....

    A Symphony of Frost and Flame
    Eternity's End The Battle for Mount Hyjal.

    Arthas VS Illidan

    WInner takes Icecrown. And then the Finale iconic fight between them. Now in stunning HD and Insanely detailed Maps.

    Also I think Sylvanas VS Balnazzar For Capital City is going to get quite an overhaul for since Capital City is quite iconic in modern WoW.

    I'd point you to blizzard's site. Yesterday that game cost 20$ and today it costs 30$. And no, it's not the inflation that changed the price. Just dirty consumer-hostile practices all too common in the triple A gaming industry.

    What we want is a warcraftIII remastered, just something like SCR. Not this warcraftIII ref**ked. Very diappointed!
    Keep the graphics a warcraft/wow style! Not Heroes of storm or DOTA2 style!
    Some item/ability icon are "updated", even they are still being used in WOW! Crazy.

    Release date 2004

    Thanks bub whats being made today that has the quality of a WC / SC campaign? or length.

    WC3R is an entirely new set of campaigns with different maps thats a guarantee buy with no regrets for the content gained.
    They wont do stratholme and leave the other maps barren by comparison.

    Better yet this might just be a big enough kick to start an RTS Renaissance similar to the one Isometric CRPGS has seen in recent years.

    Quick Technical question. If I make a map in the reforged Warcraft using Custom HD models. People who have original would not techinlly be able to cross play since there is no original edition of the Custom HD Models I just made? Is that correct or not?

    Thanks

    False. It's a hard edit, not entirely new. It's a remake in the long run but not entirely new because it's actually a reboot.
    I think so. Code might break. However, classic WcIII maps would be more playable on Reforged.

    Play the 2P campaign that you can download here on the hive. Completely new by your standards right?

    You know I'd imagine I am not the only one who thinks that a new campaign actually requires a new story, new characters, new plots points and all that jazz as opposed to simply adding new unit and doodad models.

    Perfect solution would be if they didnt even try to forcefully replace Wc3 with it.......Just drop III in the title......Warcraft Reforged a reimagining of original warcraft stories and rts gameplay, they would be able to change far more......have freedom in adding new race or races and modes....and to redesign everything like crazies......and everyone is happy...
    Why they felt the need to force it on us as standard and replacement.....i know it will have the option to switch back but it shouldnt affect wc3 at all... people would still make and port maps to it.......and peopel who want new Warcraft game are happy, and warcraft 3 community and all our assets are left unscaved. They could go crazy with fidelity and changes to everything....to retcon as much as they would please.......and wc3 would be as it is....free of interference, intrusion and revisions.... It doesnt need to be like George Lucas's "fixes" to Original trilogy....tho ofcourse its not of awful quality.....its just equally forced and unnessesary....
