    They are not even admitting its their fault by saying our expectations were high. If you think its a step then good for you as you are more happier than me. For me its nothing because:
    Blizzard 2019: "We will do better going forward"
    Blizzard 2020: "We will do better going forward"
    How much do you want to bet that Blizzard will say the same thing again for their NEXT screw up?

    I have 1.31.1 on my old laptop, if someone can tell me how to properly archive it (i.e. just zip the folder and upload it?), I'd be willing to do it.

    I guess, you only need to archive the whole 1.31.1 folder.

    If they add the missing features then I will be fine with no classic client. For example the client of sc remaster upgrades every feature of the classic game such as the 3d backgrounds and I want them to do the same with wc3. Also:
    "-We didn't want to steer too far from the original game-"
    "-we want to preserve the original feeling of Warcraft 3-"
    By deleting the original game?

    i have read it closely enough. They are ignoring 70% of the issues, but i'm happy if they can fix 30% of those. Which is exactly what my post is about.

    "One of the concerns with Reforged that we’ve seen are the visuals when selecting Classic Mode. We’ve identified the bug causing the colors and shading to look different from the original Warcraft III, and we’re testing a fix that will be incorporated in a larger patch addressing this issue and others. We expect to release that late this week. The patch will also address many other known issues, such as fixing some portrait animations and audio bugs, implementing some UI fixes, and more."

    At least, they know about those issues and they'll fix them. Let's hope patches, which will come in near future will add back custom campaign feature, which is missing.

    It's really nice that they're fixing broken effects in Classic, as well as fixing some bugs and improving performances. But no word on Custom Campaigns? Not a single one? This kinda makes me worried.
    Also, considering that the game just came out, the patching cycle is kinda slow. By now there should have been at least two patches.

    Actually i hope this screwup won't affect wc3 and thus i wont care.

    I don't care for admitting any fault or bullshit like that. I expect fixes for the problems. And when i see they aknowledge problems and announce fixes for that, that is what i want to see. Like 1.31.1 brought for example (still my favorite patch so far with bots gone , new natives and only minor instabilities)

    I think he meant professionalism has to be in every field without excuse.

    did you know psycho health has just about the same value as the physical? By destroying smbd's childhood you're putting him into risk of earlier cardio attacks, increase his blood pressure, stimulate his kidneys to product more adrenalin and rage over the badly done thing on forums. Your idea is that some specialists are allowed to perforom bad as long as they fits your inner feelings. My idea is thats not acceptable, because it's not the only team lead/blizzard's manager in the world, there are bunch of humans who do their jobs properly.

    A regular, shot-term stress response is not going to cause any permanent damage and if someone suffers such a severe and long-lasting response that actually has any negative impact on his physical health due to a botched video game, I'd argue that his mental health was already in need of a professional help.

    First off, we want to say we’re sorry to those of you who didn’t have the experience you wanted, and we’d like to share our plans for what’s coming next.


    Oh really? You are going to blame the player base now, after YOUR mess-up? HOW in the world could you even mess up this bad, when you simply had to add some high-ress models to new game, and leave the original as it was? And you have the audacity to insult and blame the audience? YOUR audience?

    Blizzard said:
    Before we go on: the team is excited that Warcraft III: Reforged is finally upon us and we’re fully committed to supporting the game for a long time to come.


    Yeah yeah, just like with presentation of Diablo Immortal... Anything is answered with "wE aRe SuPeR ExItEd"... Way to play dumb and ignore all the 1000 and one ways you messed up.

    Blizzard said:
    [...]and we’re looking forward to pouring our hearts into Reforged and the Warcraft III community for the long term.


    In other words, you are not going to do anything much to fix the game now... Despite the fact, that the game is already launched at full price, and yet, it works like a Beta, or even worse. I've seen DayZ Standalone Beta and even that ran better. And you merely had to add some models to the game. Nothing else. One fucking job blizz...

    Blizzard said:
    Related to that, as we talked about last year at BlizzCon, we did not want the in-game cutscenes to steer too far from the original game. We went a little deeper into the thought process behind that at the show, but the main takeaway is that the campaigns tell one of the classic stories in Warcraft history, and we want to preserve the true spirit of Warcraft III and allow players to relive these unforgettable moments as they were (albeit rebuilt with new animations and the higher fidelity art).


    You really still have the audacity to say this, after you completely destroyed the original game, when the original client is no longer accessible, and the old game is gone, what with Custom Games and Custom Campaigns being removed from game. If you really wanted to preserve Warcraft III by keeping as it were, YOU SHOULD HAVE KEPT AS IT WAS, you lying fucks.

    Talking about the Custom games, or campaigns, this update did not even touch on them. At all. In general, it did not address any of the more pressing matters... Like giving us back the original, or addressing your new policy. Hahah, and despite that they claim they are "preserving" the original Warcraft 3 spirit. Hahahaahahahaaha

    This response could be considered a joke, if it wasn't so insulting to the fans.
