    I wonder if they'll fix the engine lag when a lot of units are on the map.

    I thought SD would refer to classic models, while HD would be for Reforged models.
    Man, it would be awesome if there was some minor graphics improvements in classic game too, especially for those who will use custom models and thus will need classic game so these models don't look out of place. I don't have too much hope about this, though.

    Everything seems nice so far, backward compatibility, togglable new sound set, graphics, models, improved editor, new campaign (kinda). I almost cried while watching the trailer, we all have been playing this game for too long. I guess all that's left is to wait. I just hope switching between classic and reforged is going to be convenient and can be done from within the game since it would be a hassle to exit and reboot warcraft every time.

    There are a lot of maps that are in Chinese but ever since 1.28, I think we haven't found a way to change the game's font to something that supports Chinese. Hopefully, reforged will solve that issue. I'll gladly pay $30 if it means I can enjoy my Chinese custom maps in 1080p.

    more than 6 slot inventory though :ogre_datass:

    I suggest continuing development for now. It's too long to wait, and re-adapting is better if they really stick to their end of words.

    I think you'll still need to offer an 'SD' version of your games when reforged releases. But we need more information from Blizzard on that.

    Don't wait. Even after Reforged is released it will take a long time before we get high-quality models that live up to Reforged's standards, and even then the selection will probably be very limited compared to the SD one. I don't think people should get their hopes up about custom HD models too much. High-poly sculpting and PBR textures are a whole other beast than the regular ole' hand-painted blocky models we're used to with WC3. It takes a lot of practice.

    I'll be pretty happy with tons of HotStorm and WoW rips frankly until enough community made resources appear. Heck even StarCraft II ones! Man I really want to make a SC campaign with the World Editor.

    Even you can re-texture older models with the newer set, and they won't look that out of place. In general my curiosity is going on the World Editor, is the make it or break it for Reforged.

    They better not fuck up the editor, especially Trigger Editor. Just that one personal favor.

    Not only that but the pathing might be better in DotA 2.

    Finish your maps. Getting your idea to actually work in reality and balance it, is what's difficult anyway

    Me too! It got emotional for me. Especially Pete's announcement and his moment of celebration. I could totally relate since Warcraft 3 has been a part of my life, like it has for so many others - for so many years. Definitely the best news coming out of Blizzcon!

    His speech was seriously the best ever. It felt so genuine and I couldn't have said it better myself. Wc3 is so amazing because of its multi-faceted community--you have people who love the game for modding, you have people who love the game for campaigns, and you have people who love the game for playing ladder and/or custom games. And that's made the game survive for so so long.

    I'm most ecstatic that folks from the classic team are involved in the remaster. I feel like the game is in good hands. :)

    This. If your thing works on War 3 RIGHT NOW it will mostly still work like that by the time Reforged comes out.

    I think everyone who truly loves Warcraft 3 got emotional.

    It really amped up when I came to the revelation with the new culling level that this remake could give over 60+ brand new campaign maps with new tactical challenges. Which is my eyes makes it 9 Entirely brand new Campaigns.

    i did notice the minibosses and mal'ganis was dropping random items on the Culling. I prefer static loot in the campaigns but that could be interesting.

    Saw stuff from Greater Mana pots all the way to +6 Int Robes and Meds of Courage dropping off seperate playthroughs of that level of the same kills.

    WIth this announcement Diablo 2 Remake is cemented as an absolute guarantee to happen aswell.
