    I hope the editor changes don't oversimplify some existing powerful features.

    I recall learning previously that the wc3 world editor was made by a third party/contractors. I'm guessing "remaking" it is actually a necessity.

    All I'm saying is I'm happy that was what needed so Blizzard has done the right thing, if people thinks it is bad they can make a better remaster themselves, We (Armies of Azeroth) tried it and it looks like we failed to deliever it in time and yes I do think some models we made are cooler but there is no denyinh Blizzard did ALL while we were just crawling

    Source? I've talked to Ben Brode (of Hearthstone fame) about his work on the Mac editor, so.

    I have been a Warcraft 3 player for 10 years now and I don't know if I should be excited or annoyed >_>
    although 30 euro is a good price I don't want to have to buy the game AGAIN!
    they could at least make it that if you have your ROC & TFT keys to get the game for free... OR at least get a discount lol...

    also I should hurry and finish my map before the new WC3 is out >_>

    I've never understood this argument... It's one thing if it was a game littered with microtransactions and DLC and you're paying to get it on a new platform with slightly better graphics a couple years later (Skyrim), but... Come on. It's been 16 years, dude. How many hours have you spent in this game? Do you think you got your money's worth? Because if not, I feel really sorry for you.

    i support your opinion about blizzard trying to make people waste money in something which will be a dissapointment, as it does with its new patchs it created. the graphics and mechanics seems to be really poor and i wouldn't expect a better development in the new world editor. blizzard even confirmed when this new version of warcraft will be available!!

    it is so similar when blizzard released "wc3 - armies of azeroth", but even this mod has better graphics than this new wc3 version.

    You're wrong. If you watched Grubby's stream it's blatantly Warcraft 3 with new models.

    Anyone who's worked with Warcraft 3 enough will recognize all the UI quirks are still there.

    Armies of Azeroth is a fan-made mod.

    Here is my opinion about this.

    I am thrilled for these news and eager to test it.

    However, I am also sad as most likely the old Warcraft III that fans loved for more than 15 years will lose popularity. Warcraft III is my favorite game and it scares me the possibility of it being forgotten in favor of this new version.

    The models look a lot more realistic, which is good, but from what I have seen in the trailers, some old models seem more fitting. Just saying.

    The voices in the cinematic also seem different from the ones of the regular Warcraft 3. Arthas' voice for example reminds me of his voice in Wow. I truly hope they keep most of the same voice actors for this new version, as I prefer them over their WoW versions.

    Let's look on the bright side, people!

    1) New icons!
    2) New skins and geosets to use in old-school models.
    3) Influx of new blood which will hopefully revitalize the old-school part of the modding community too... maybe...

    That's... something. Right?

    The first shot looks like a screengrab from the stream. The pictures of in-game shots on their main site are more sharper and have more vibrant colors, like your edit.

    Also, I don't think this runs HD modellers out of work. If anything, this revitalizes it. I've been doing Warcraft 3 models for SC2 since 2010 and I'm happy to see the bar's been raised for polycounts for a WC3 remaster. I'm looking forward to going back and upressing some assets to fit this new style, and possibly even make edits on some of the uglier ones in the game to make em look better.

    Considering what they did with SC:R, I don't think it'll fragment the community, because I think it'll literally be the same game with HD toggles. Might be wrong, if someone has a source that disproves my assumption feel free to share it.

    I think that was the original voice line? Not sure. I do recall Arthas being pretty angsty early on.

    I'm interested in seeing how this is going to work out, especially the editor. The low quality models have bothered me for...forever.
