    Custom models I've used in maps seem to keep their scaling. It seems to be just the original doodads that are entirely ruined by Lemonsky's incompetence.

    Can we get ranking system for versus mode?! like 7 Tiers with 3 Division, and at the end of each month, the season resets.
    Bronze 3-2-1
    Silver 3-2-1
    Gold 3-2-1
    Diamond 3-2-1
    Master 3-2-1
    Grandmaster 3-2-1
    Legendary/Challenger 3-2-1

    And the leaderboard should appear somewhere in the profile!
    [​IMG]

    And you can message him/her (or someone), that he/she can draw a icon for each rank.

    The menu bar between reforged and classic looks bad ,and the scroll bar doesn't look fit, and the loading bar should also have a percentage.

    You're not alone in this. This release has been an ABSOLUTE dumpster fire, and yet people are still out here defending this bastardized version of Warcraft 3.

    To me, this feels like it's an advertisement screen away from being a mobile phone game.

    I agree I think Blizzard has left the building on PC games and went to mobile when they put there hat in the game with Diablo Immotile, and the feel with this garbage of WC3 proves it.

    What the hell happened?
    Reforged looks like garbage. xD
    The Russian guys who did the Wc3 Reborn mod seemed to do a far better job than whatever hacks Blizzard hired for the job.
    They promised completely new cutscenes, redone cinematics, new gameplay features. All they did was give the game a bleaker overtone with more polygons. What a rip off.

    This release is a joke.. I mean i exptected some bugs/problems but cmon... Blizzard is not some indie company i guess Reforged Beta was actually and Alpha stage of the game and now we moved on to beta.. hope i won't have to wait another year to fix most things. Don't know if you noticed guys but i can't find Lan option in menu neither CUSTOM CAMPAIGN!!! I mean custom campaigns were great and I had high hopes for many new ones from community but it seems we don't even have this option anymore..

    At the moment I cannot host custom games on any map.... somehow I also still have the double copies of every map. I have not even determined the install location.... it didn't install on my classic directory so I have no clue.

    I especially need/want someone to confirm the custom campaigns menu not being a thing anymore.

    No custom campaigns, no ladder, no clans (an advertized back of the box feature!), chat is broken, slash chat commands gone, campaign screens, UI, bnet stuff like profiles - all destroyed with no forewarning and no consideration for the base game user. I had to download 25gb of assets my game is not using for this.

    I want a representative of Blizzard to come and tell me how any of the above is a gain for me. I would even be satisfied if they somehow could tell me how any of it is not a net negative.
    How did Blizzard come to a point where they're now actively destroying the good games they made.

    I can't even play the game right now because every time I attempt to log in I get a an error which throws me back to the title screen where I can do nothing but quit.

    I did not opt into this. I don't want any of it. Why am I being punished for a purchase I didn't make.

    Even I who expected Reforged to be bad and had no expectations did not see this coming.
    What a joke. It is almost funny.

    This is why you shouldn't preorder. There is less of an incentive for them to fix what they broke, let alone release it not broken in the first place, because they already have their money. Glad I decided against preordering it, and I'm not patching until I know it's fixed.

    This is very disappointing, but not entirely surprising. Blizzard-Activision has been a soulless talentless corporation for a long time, it's the not the creative development studio it was before being bought by Activision.

    When did our society go down this stink-hole... Some companies of the VG industry used to make money through creating good products and reinforcing their reputation, not just via silly cash-grabs (sometimes aided by marketing campaigns). So sad. I'm not talking about any specific company here, just observe the latest trends.

    I didn't buy Reforged and now I know I won't. From what I saw on Youtube and Twitch during beta and after the release, and from what I read here and there, the game is a total disappointment. If I understand well, what we got is:
    • new modern graphics and new unique models
    • new 2D menu that nobody asked for
    • Battle.net integration
    • a couple of new WE features that only a few skilled modders will be able to use, and nothing for the rest of us
    • new local voiceover (something that nobody asked for)
    • virtually no quality of life improvement
    • campaign improvements and new cutscenes scrapped almost entirely (even though many people, including me, didn't agree with those changes because it would be inspired by WoW, it's still something they promised and didn't deliver)
    • some multiplayer/lobby features removed, such as clans, chat commands, etc (and we don't know when and if they will be back)
    • broken custom models and custom maps
    • LAN removed
    • RoC removed
    • new EULA, which makes copyrights way stronger and limits modders' work
    • obligation to be online to play, even when solo playing
    • countless bugs and various issues
    • and so on
    Not to mention that the devs were silent for almost a whole year.

    So, in a nutshell: new graphics, fewer features and a lot of bugs and problems. And they charge 40$/30€ for it.

    And I don't even like the new art style. I don't recognise iconic characters such as Thrall, Medivh, Arthas, etc, nor do I recognise golems or ogres (are those even the same creatures??). Actually, a huge number of units are not even recognisable, it's like playing a different game. Many weapons, armour parts or body parts have extremely weird proportions or shapes. Paladins and dryads have stupid haircuts. Units/buildings and terrain look like they belong to two different games. Of course, this art style rant is just my opinion, but sadly I know I'm not the only one. I think they simply killed the atmosphere and the spirit of the game.

    Warcraft III is my all-time favourite game (and many Hive members' favourite game I suppose!), I should be happy to see my favourite game getting some love again. But I feel nothing like that. I've always tried not to be too hard on Classic team, to show some restraint, I thought they were doing their best; and I was patient, I thought maybe there would be significant and interesting changes eventually. But now I can no longer be indulgent. I'm extrelemy disappointed and I'm utterly baffled to see what they were capable to do with such an amazing, legendary game. I can't even imagine how it's possible to make such bad decisions. When I think about what it could have been, and what it actually is... it's killing me.

    And so much for the "we want your feedback" statement.

    Please consider unforging Reforged and reforging it again...

    I'm pretty sure the company underestimated the time/work they needed to finish it properly, but the higher ups were unwilling to postpone their profits, so they started scrapping stuff like new voiceovers and updated campaigns and extended the deadline (by less than a month), still weren't able to finish their work in time, but still weren't allowed to extend the deadline, etc.

    It would have been better if they had ANNOUNCED reforged this week (after working on it for over a year), and only released it in december or even 2021. Then they would have been able to deliver on their promises. They also definitely should have hired their own artists instead of outsourcing to some digital sweatshop.
    But of course that would have cut into their short-term profits too much.

    So am I reading the new EULA correctly? If I make X game and then later in life write a book about X game blizzard can sue me? Or are they rather sharing my copyright in the sense that we can both write a book about X.

    Is this intellectual theft or intellectual profit sharing?

    I use their tools so I don't care if they have some of the pie, but if they take my whole pie and I can't have any then I am finally on the band wagon of loyal followers Blizzard has killed.

    Yes, you use their tool, they own your map. It is quite simple. If you write a book with Microsoft Word, Microsoft will own your work. If you write it with a pen, the pen manufacturer will own it. Makes perfect sense!

    Joke aside, they must have done this to prevent profit to be made from successful content, like it happened with Dota. Not sure it will encourage modders to work hard to create enjoyable maps tho...

    I've been working on a huge mod for over a year in anticipation of reforged but by the time I finish it I feel like the playerbase will be gone. 1.9 on metacritic is abysmal. Also annoyed by some of the changes.. crystals are no longer transparent and my beautiful cavern filled with frozen spiders is so meh now. Also green water everywhere now wtf, hopefully UTM can fix it...
