    Heey, i don't understand half of what you are talking about, but did i just read that it's possible for players with clients 1.26-1.28 to play with each other??
    or is that what are you trying to accomplish? i'm not native english speaker nor i'm very knowledgeable about computer slang so please correct me if i'm wrong (probably i am), sorry for interrupting your battle guys xd

    All i want to do in this effort is keep Warcraft 3 Classic alive, no matter what it takes, even if we are all divided at this moment in time i am sure we will all come together at one point.
    I want to be a part of that moment.

    As long as we live, so shall 1.21/1.26-1.28.
    Of that, you need not to worry. However, unless we attempt to unite what is left of legacy war3 it shall forever linger in twilight, myriadly sharded.
    I do believe that now is probably the best time to attempt this as the odds of succeeding has never been higher.

    As for Gonguerf: It's possible to sync certain, different patches ie, these can play together (for the most part, there are certain things that will desync, but they may be fixable). Of note are everything from 1.26 up to 1.28.5 - these batch of patches can all sync.

    @Gonguerf Hey there, in a nutshell, yes 1.26-1.28 can play together, right now as many other places it is done on an PvPGN Server, what we're trying to accomplish is getting a universal hostbot working, which is estimated to be finished in about 2 weeks, hopefully. At that time then People will be able to meet up and play, while hostbot does some minor sync-related stuff but also replaces the host of a match, which leads to the game being able to always continue, as the host will never leave.

    I also however want to inform you, that anything beyond 1.28.5 is considered impossible to include into the syncing as of now, due to introduced encryption in later releases. However, an important additions from 1.29 (in my opinion), being wide-screen-support can be replaced by a mod (which is the case in 1.27b), and playerlimits, which have been expanded in 1.29 can technically be modded as well. But Unforged obviously wants to keep everything as convenient and simple as possible, which is why you will find ready-to-play packages and the like on their Discord Server.

    I fully follow that opinion. But who would be bold enough to unite the Clans?

    Just joined the server. Nice to see that classic didn't completely die even with Blizzards attempts at killing it.

    Might as well be me, for the lack of alternatives.
    I do have other, arguably more fulfilling projects to take care of, tho so there's that

    That's cool, i'll really give this a shot when i finish my map, i've lost all faith in playing the game throught the official bnet, my computer can't handle reforged and i don't plan to upgrade anytime soon, i'm also from a third world country, living on a rural area where my only source of internet is throught my cellphone's hotspot function, got 20gb/month to use 4g, if u use more than that the speed drops to unuseable levels (can't even open gmail xd), another reason to avoid the 30gb "upgrade"

    We warcraft 3 players are divided enough. Please stay on Battlenet. We can't afford to lose more players.
    Truth be told, Reforged is not what we wanted but it's still superior in many aspects to 1.26 (ex : widescreen support, 24p, new graphics, battlenet integration...).

    Sad to hear your Internet Providers over there are so limiting. As long as you'd not be hosting a game, just playin, though, your internet usage should diminish. The Problem that I see for you, generally speaking, is that when you have high Ping (in the 200 area) the best thing to do is to download the associated map (assuming you play custom multiplayer) which might not work so well with a 4 GB limit. Many maps are small though. 20-30 MB at most.

    In either case, we'd be happy to see you join our discord. If you'd have any more questions, there are always folks around to answer them :)

    Did Blizzard pay you enough shekels to shill a downgrade this much and then say it's superior to 1.26?

    I'd rather assume that this is less of a shill, and instead something someone written who only rather recently joined the warcraft III.

    Either way, the described widescreen support, and 24p go back to update 1.29, new graphics.... ah well, I'll keep my personal opinion on that to myself, and "battlenet integration" I'm not sure what you could mean, Battlenet was always part of WC3. And, in fact, battlenet is being emulated. So.... yeah. Please clarify, if you may.

    Hey there, thanks for the information, but i meant i have 20 gigabytes to spend a month, by 4g i meant the broadband my phone uses (sharing wifi with my phone is the only way to have internet where i live), if i use more than my 20 gigabyte cap then i can still use internet, but it drops to 2g and it's so slow it's like having no connection at all lol

    I'd love to believe me, i am 100% willing to buy the original game again if either A) they allow me to buy and play the classic game (unlikely to happen) or B) i upgrade my computer so it can handle reforged (even more unlikely to happen)

    and tbh the only thing i miss from the new patch is the 24 player limit and access to bnet, i use a square monitor because fuck widescreen, and i'm not part of the ultra 4k supah HD craze that is the norm for games now either, i like games looking goofy and unrealistic, if i want to witness realistic fantasy i go watch a movie, for me games are like porn films, i only care if it's good where its intended to be good (being entertaining), i'd rather play a plot-less, 2d videogame that is very entertaining, than a movie-esque, lifelike graphics game that feels more like an interactive movie than a game (most modern games i've had the chance to play fail to have a good enough plot to justify the endless cutscenes and interruptions, it's like they try to create a mix of game and movie but fail at both)

    While i agree it's best to have most of the community playing on the same platform/server, it is up to blizzard to fix the issue now, not us, i used to play everyday, from my potato computer, i was a happy customer spending time on their game, but now i am unable to, and i'm sure there are a lot of people like me who can't play anymore because their computers are not good enough for the new version, they literally told customers to basically stop bitching and get a better computer on their forums LOL, i mean, who is going to buy a new computer just so they can play one game? not me at least :(, even if i had the money, i have motorcycle, a girlfriend, friends i like to hang out with, all these activities require money too and while i consider myself an avid gamer, it's near the bottom of my priority list

    In the vein of goofy yet serious attempts of putting Unforged on the map, Zeronia and Bolty of Unforged posted this altered Scene from Wc3. Enjoy :)

    Not sure why the leaders of all the non-bnet groups don't work together and avoid branching off into various communities. It comes across as more about ego when this happens, since there cannot be any good reason fracturing the non-bnet player base. Not that I am complaining, since I strongly support reforged/official bnet, and your approach only makes reverting to bnet more attractive for players who are still playing in private communities, since there are not enough players in each community.

    Cross-Realm

    This is the upcoming UI for Bnet, which implies cross realm will now be possible, which will like only further the decline of player-base in private communities since players will probably become congregated in bnet. Of course, this is just speculation.

    @Krolan: Voobly is not only about playing AoE2. Also, WC3 is already mentioned in their list of supported games (under the supported Strategy CD-ROM ones category).

    Maybe you mean a Voobly exclusive version of WC3, since they also host their own exclusive updated ones (currently available only for a handful of games afaik).

    Yeh, I must admit that I only recently realized that voobly is a universal platform of "simulated" ladder-games and server provider.

    Recently checked on WC3 and it had exactly one active player. So I am wondering still, and even moreso, why a community-driven unification desire would not lead to people setting up a proper Forum around voobly-play.
