    We are extremely excited to bring forth the commencement of the Warcraft III Anniversary Week event!

    July 3 marks our favorite game’s 17th birthday since its original release in 2002. Since then, the entire WC3 community has created an unfathomable amount of content and memories that no one could have ever foreseen coming. This week, we will explore the legacy that thousands of players and creators alike have contributed to. Prepare for a blast from the past, inject a heavy dose of mana-nostalgia, and gaze towards the future with the culmination of everything that is Warcraft III: Reforged.

    Delay/Update
    FEATURE LINKS:

    Article: Reforged Recap: The Future of Warcraft Part II (OUT NOW)
    Media: WC3 History: Warcraft III Community Map HD (OUT TUESDAY)
    Article/Media: WC3 History: The Story of Warcraft III (OUT WEDNESDAY)
    Other: Yet to be revealed, TBA


    This is presented by Hive, the W3U Discord, and the r/Warcraft3 subreddits, but we cannot thank all the other communities enough for how much they've contributed to the game over the years. Just yesterday B2W live-casted WC3 Esports history.

    Cheers folks! <3 Love ya all.
    So many possibilities to explore and new heights to reach. Tastes may differ, but Reforged surely will aid to increase the game's longevity by a mile. Newest generations will come to hive and maybe stay here.

    I wonder if we will be able to switch wc3 classic to reforged on the go with 1 hotkey? Like, for example some custom maps wouldn't run well with reforged due to a different model/animation style and functionality (and I'm not even touching code now), especially with custom assets included to the map. So, moders could add a warning message directly to the loading screen of their creations "use the classic version for more visual and functional coherence".

    I wish it will possible to switch, but I think it won't because we have seen new doodads in Culling map so; what if a custom map uses those new doodads? what would you see in the classic version?...

    I don't know how they will do it...

    Yeah, that intrigues me too. I wonder though, if we'll find a way to run newest engine version with old assets. I mean, for some projects there's just too much to model/animate/texture from a scratch, if one wishes to adapt it to Reforged art style.

    Yeah, sad about the situation with the editor. This endeavour was a great idea though. I'll stay tuned for updates. Keep it up! :peasant-thumbs-up:

    Think west coast PST time. Blizzard is on the west coast too, so all of us in this time zone think in soonTM because of that.

    But really, sorry about that guys. There were some urgent pressing things that needed to be taken care of but now that those are all finally over, it can resume. Putting in overtime and really aiming for the morning of Wednesday.
