    Hopefully we'll get some news and maybe a more precise release date soon. I suspect the relative silence so far is because they are putting lots of effort into making the best it can be. :)

    More like because its a skeleton crew. So a timely release isnt a priority for blizzard looking at the current shitshow state of activision and blizzard Ips

    Consider the fact the only positive reception from the company at this time out of all their products is the Beta for 2004 WoW

    I wouldnt expect anything major from wc3R revealed until September after Classic releases at a minimum


    On entirely unreleated warcraft news

    Cyberpunk 2077 is very soon
    Doom 5 is soon
    New divinity game
    And most importantly

    Baldurs Gate 3 was just announced by probably the best developer that could be doing it: Larian.

    the night elf archer looks more like an undead dark ranger.

    sadly, no image done for a demon hunter.

    Cant have the amazon race dressing like amazons can we?

    This is 2019 better make the night elves all full plate armor.

    If they show any skin or booty would have to bring out the outrage brigade to make Blizz repent their sins against the woman

    yep, exactly why majority of model designs for the wc3 reforged is ugly, caused its mostly based on WoW colorful and ridiculous armor and weapon designs...

    yeah... modern outrage brigade... i wonder why the people who made the wonderwoman movie did not put on a full metal covered armor for Gal Gadot?

    still even the undead dark ranger in the orig wc3 does not appear to be a walking zombie robot archer to be fully covered...

    that makes sense for the look, but why do they present it as a Night Elf unit?

    Thanks :)

    Maybe it was a mistake, because they have removed the image from the web pages.

    Yup, they did it, and glad to hear that that wasn't a "modern and edgy guerrilla redesinged" archer, anyway, LemonSky Studios made some weird choices for the models, and i'm still not a fan of their work so far, hope they get a bit more faithful to the old Samwise concepts for the Nelfs, wich were the boldest move desing-wise in the franchise at that time, so far looks like all those nordic-greek-asian mash-up aspects aren't relevant to LSS

    Youd think blizzard would have a little more going on then the 0 hype or advertising for reforged since its reveal

    Then again if my card game , moba, shooter, MMO , and entire "Esports" brand was tanking hard at the rate their games are id be not so concerned about an RTS either.

    Modern blizzard enjoying the mess they made for themselves over the last few years it seems.

    Maybe bethesda , bioware, and blizzard could gather have a think tank meeting and realise they cant coast on a studios name anymore because the talent has left the building

    Cdprojekt is the new bethesda

    Larian studios is the new Bioware

    Blizzard... wel . Blizzard threw their identity away 10 years ago.


    Personally i have to ask everyone.

    Why did blizzard think it was a good idea to break. Band aid and continue to break. WC3 when its going to ve a brand new client and standalone game in reforged anyway.

    That to me is a questionable deaign choice and pretty jarring to the point i question if they even gave a shit if they ended up breaking eemverything.

    Think for a moment if no one decided to update their campaigns.

    Ill play reforged for the rts rpg campaign. But at the end of the day non of this damage done to a 15 year old game was needed or asked for.

    As someone that probably asked for a HD edition more than anyone else, I agree with it, changes and patches were never asked and made the game worse, and artstyle of the Reforged is an abomination

    I strongly disagree. :peasant-i-object:

    Regardless, if you don't like the Reforged graphics, the developers are kind enough to give you the option to choose between the old graphics and the new. So you can stick to the past.

    Personally I think the new models look incredible (and I've seen more than most have so far). Just wait and see! Every single model looks amazing! And they are making diffrent variations & animations for many, if not all, models! You gotta appreciate the amount of work the team is putting into Reforged! :peasant-bowing:
