    Any chance they'll remove the movement/attack/turn speed limits? they limit the scope of many maps, in my opinion

    An easier way to change models would be nice, as opposed to having to use the Tinker's Ultimate for everything

    the #1 thing i would want is a native way to maintain ladders and ban lists for custom maps.

    The competitive custom map community took a very big hit when bots were removed. i understand the need to do that, but it becomes exponentially more difficult to maintain a community and to sanction bad actors without the ability to keep track of them, or the carrot of trying to get a good record keeping people honest and fighting until they can't win anymore, instead of leaving as soon as a round doesn't match their idea of a good/perfect start. i think the fear of a loss going on your permanent, account-tied record is necessary to keep competitive-style maps fun in the long run.

    We need a map encryption for Warcraft Reforged or people will steal credit for all our hard work.
    Map protection software go out of date really quickly and the developers have stopped updating them.
    It would be great if we had map encryption in the Reforged World Editor so we wouldn't have to make go through this process every every single time.
    Because if the classic team doesn't make one, the community will anyway but it will take time.
    Each patch seems to break the map protectors, so it would be nice to have one official one that didn't break.
    Honestly i just don't see how Reforged custom games will endure if don't have a way to encrypt maps.

    Unless they make custom games like the StarCraft II Arcade where you can only find a map based on the original author who uploaded it. Well, I guess there are some exceptions but I also guess reporting there is a thing.

    For some reason I have a feeling that if blizzard makes offcial map protection people will find a way around it in no time, I don't know why

    Well you could always add an encryption key or something like it.
    It's all about making the process a real hassle.

    The dilemma is that you can't encrypt any part of a map without making the game unable to read it.

    That's why in principle there's no bulletproof protection. If extra data is added to signal protection (be it something as simple as a single bit, or as complex as a digital signature), people can just change it, or truncate it, or extract relevant data. Bipartitioning the formats in "w3x playable" and "w3x editable" could also be bypassed by engineering a third-party converter.

    The best bet is indeed the hassle. It doesn't even have to be a real hassle—I find current protection methods suitable because they bar 99% of would-be looters. Only it won't stop those Chinese money-mongers from profiting.

    Like one ones the Archer, Dark Ranger, Death Knight, Druid of the Talon, Jaina and Malfurion have?

    The only unit to wear a cape properly is the Blood Mage/Kael.

    Casters and hunters wearing hoods/capes/coats makes sense, and the DK is a hero mockin the regal look of a paladin :peasant-rolling-eyes:

    Home Scroll Portal cooldown doesn't work.
    Cleaving Attack draws aggro range is bugged and draws aggro from much further than specified.

    When I speak of cape, im actually talking about the back armor clothing in wow which is ridiculous to be worn by most model heroes and units

    Archers, Dark Rangers, Shandris, Riflemen... HOODS/COATS not capes, which makes sense for the appearance of a long range hunter..

    Jaina, Furion, Ordinary Archmages, Kael/ Blood Mages, Far Seer (except Thrall), priests, sorceresses, shamans, necromancers, etc... ROBES not capes, which make sense for magical spellcasters...

    Paladins, Death Knights... BACK CLOTH TABARDS not capes, which is a realistic symbol for armor-plated knight warrior carrying the banner of his faction/country...


    When I speak of capes not fitting for every unit, Im actually talking about those units that does not wear such things lorewise, and appearance-wise would look stupid and does make no sense at all... such as for Demon Hunters, Mountain Kings, Blademasters, Dreadlords...

    They should not turn the armor and weapon model appearance close to WoW... it is stupid for a concept of topless demon hunters or blademasters to wear superman capes pretty much like how every armor gear appearance in WoW works...

    Are suggestions still a thing?

    I was playing today and noticed that I needed to kill my workers to reduce upkeep.
    So my suggestion is rather quality of life improvement, and let's give those poor hard workers some dignity!

    Suggestion:
    Add a 'retire' function for workers, purely aesthetic, where they are removed from the game.

    Sure, but that's strategy. It takes time to kill a unit so you can relieve upkeep.

    Ah, so it would mess up the core of classic Warcraft 3. Well, maybe add game modes? Classic Wc3, and Refined one.
