    this yours?
    if so/not has it been posted some where?

    while no fancy UI there is the old way, the file seems to be more laid out then i remember as well (may be wrong about being more laid out)
    also there is a new default GRID style in the options menu completely ignoring old/normal keybinding

    That's one overdramatic yet interesting open letter. Even if it wouldn't make any difference, Blizz should probably see it. Lmao.

    What are some cool strategy modding games I can use instead, which are kinda like WC3?
    DotA2?

    Well, i actually can read russian, but having an english client lets me only see russian language in custom game lobby & main menu chat. Ingame it does not work :D Back then there was a way to have a different font installed to see all unicode characters, including russian & chinese

    Nothing like the good ol' Warcraft III, however there's Armies of Exigo (more code than GUI) and Age of Mythology (saner coding).
    Not sure about Dota2. Heard it has a nice editor.

    Read the official forums, folks - it appears the update isn't even downloading properly for some people and without having an updated client you can't play the game. And yes, I'm sure this will get resolved fairly quickly, but... what a surprise that the Reforged clownfiesta continues ;) Anyway, I'm happy they fixed some things - good on people who didn't refund - but I'm actually more curious what new bugs they've introduced with this patch. Because you know there's going to be something.

    P.S. To anyone who has Reforged, could we see how that sepia filter looks?

    I guess that open letter from Blizzard is just too long for me to read it entirely understandable.
    I’m very sorry, 17 was too long years for credit card to affordable and i am going ahead to what I actual think the guy who wrote this “letter”.
    Disclaimer: No offend to Blizzard but you still need enough rotten tomatoes to clear your rush product.
    Disclaimer (again): I'm just making fun of the letter, not the game. But like others, We need your action instead Blizzard, Words won't solve your problem since you're known for dishonest stuff.

    If it's a temporary solution, then what will the permanent solution be? Will they bring back TFT client?

    Also why have they still made no mention of being unable to log in if you haven't added classic keys to your bnet account? The "There was an error in handling the request" is extremely unhelpful, and I cba to download 2GB to check if they actually improved this and ask classic players for their CD keys if they haven't added those to their account yet.

    Considering they're supposedly fixing SD graphics, I very much doubt they're considering bringing back Classic.

    I could see happening is adding the original ROC/TFT menu background to Reforged and when you switch to SD, you get to see that.

    As as I remember, it's similar, but not exactly the same as RoC (in HD).

    That sepia tone is terribly unprofessional.

    Out of all the tones they could have chosen they chose SEPIA. They're probably bringing back the old screen for classic. upload_2020-2-6_23-22-7.png

    I've just tested the new patch, and the things I care about:

    Pros:
    • Classic graphics and effects have all been fixed. Cheers.
    Cons:
    • They've made a brilliant idea to make Classic main menu black and white, and Reforged with colors. Congrats! It really takes imagination to come up with these kinds of things. Why did they even change it? The menu wasn't even that bad. At this point, according to their plans, I wouldn't be surprised if the one that comes up with the patches is Ysma (from "Emperor's New Groove")!
    • To me, by far the biggest problem with the game on release, the thing that needs to be fixed urgently, the main priority, was that the menu was lagging enormousely! Cheers! Now it lags even more!
    • Not that this concerns me, but the HD models that were missing on release, they're still missing!
    • I wasn't really expecting this to beguin with, but I just gotta say it. Custom Campaigns are still missing!!!
    I really hope they don't start bringing three more bugs after they fix one. Let's hope that they'll fix more bugs in the future.

    Please don't doublepost :D

    Anyways, why do we have to go left with the menu buttons and not right as before?
