I'm not concerned about Reforged players, but about classic Warcraft III players. There won't be a lot of them if Blizzard parts Warcraft III in two separate games. Original game players will need the crossplay.Trust me it wouldnt. Amount of players in Reforged will be gigantic either way since all WoW players will herd there, and people who wanted the next game too. They dont need the crossplay and it's much better to part it from Wc3. Warcraft III will stay intact with all assets made for it while Reforged can be fully retconned and expaneded with no limits, including gameplay changes. Its the best solution.
