    If the art models are based on WoW's childish and ridiculous designs, then IT DOES look horrible, especially when it comes to things like armors, weapons, unit appearances.

    One good example out of the soooo many is:

    Illidan's warglaives. Illidan's/DH's warglaives design in WC3 appears as an ancient deadly elvish weapon that can cut any enemy with ease, despite the joke panda face easter egg.

    Meanwhile in WoW, Illidan's warglaives has been turned into a completely ridiculous cheap version of a green double-edge ligthsaber that appears to be more like a child's toy sword rather than an epic deadly weapon.

    Well I'll never stick to the old graphics otherwise I'lld not want Reforged, I want it to be a artwise loyal to the classic remaster but I know it won't be it is outsourced(not the real problem) with a different artstyle, I think from what I've seen from models I'll be replacing about 75% of them directly with my mods models.

    About every single model looking amazing I'll just say 3 things and won't criticize others
    1) Footman....................
    2) Arthas the anime prince
    3) Jaina

    Wow...
    I think they're letting you switch to the classic game not Reforged with classic graphics?
    Lemonsky studios to be precise.

    Theres no chooseing its a standal9ne game.

    How do you expect to toggle graphica when the maps are entirely redesigned?

    Personally the rebirth wc3 HD mod does the job better then what ive seen on some reforged. For the classic game thats your graphics toggle

    Heres what you can expect from the future of wc3.

    Blizzard trying to monetise Starcraft 1 now with this $10 dlc that looks like a knockoff mobile game.

    I mean, who's making you buy such things if you don't like them? I mean, it's not one skin/model, it's a whole game graphic conversion.

    What's with the giraffe?

    It's more because you need Remastered not the Anthology/classic StarCraft for it :p That's the thing I'd criticize if I were you.

    Wow, just wow. Do you even know who is Carbot? Calling his graphic DLC for Starcraft "looks like a knockoff mobile game" is a serious insult to the whole Starcraft community who wholeheartedly waited for such a DLC and even crowdfunded a Starcraft 2 mod with his cartoon graphics. Just stop, you clearly too salty and want to bring down Blizz for no reason. The Reforged art style is correct, and the Carbot DLC you insulted is fantastic.

    Yes I did, in fact I'm such a huge fan of Warcraft 1 and 2 that I remade them in Starcraft 2 (and previously I worked on a wc2 remake for wc3 too). The art style is good and correct for Warcraft 3 if you know the original concept arts of Warcraft 3.

    Yeah, i don't think so, what i saw so far doesn't look like it follows Samwise's concept art, like, at all :/

    I think you are the chronicles of azeroth guy, I am from Armies of Azeroth mod for Sc2 also Warcraft Rebirth mod's leader for Warcraft III and a member of Chinese HD remake mod Return Of The Storm, I know old concepts really well and I have been working on HD Warcraft III projects for 5 years , can I ask why your art is nothing like Reforged's (yours is alot better) in your mod?

    Some seemingly were following his stuff, like footman and gnoll, but feel got bit lost when translated to 3d model.

    However, to talk about wc3 feel, it is difficult to define it and wc3 itself had style clashing. Mostly between Samwise style and style of other guys who did textures like knight and footman (their style is majority of units from what I remember). But, wc3 feel is more than that, it is a complex mix of those styles + the rush wc3 textures were probably made in to meet the deadline + low poly ''cubism'' + the memory of players who played the game for decade and know every unit by heart.

    My opinion is that when people say something got a wc3 feel it means that the resource in question actually simply reminds them of other original one, in other words, we are talking more about accidental counterparts than clear pattern.


    I think reforged models are good, maybe too high-poly for RTS, but they are mostly very well made.
    Some were boldly shaped regarding proportions and I find it refreshing actually, I don't mind the style they were made in. What I don't like so much is shading on metal, one which makes armor very contrasted, basically creates white and black patches on it.

    Yeah, i understand, i was replying to the early comment, but i admit that even the in-game models doesn't even follow the old concept art too, and the new models are on the same boat, but then again, i don't want to fall on the hate boat too, but i was hoping for a remake wich could translate the original art properly, like it was supposed to be, but then again, this is Activision and most of the original crew members are gone for good

    Worst part is SC2 HD assets for WC3 nearly did 1-1 remaster of the models they have worked, Reforged could do the same but even better instead of this style
