    The classic graphics, even on high resolution, look bad. The lighting seems off and everything seems slightly pixelated. Also, I can’t open the editor anymore

    I'm disappointed. They should change name of the game. It's not reforged.

    This release has been a total disaster. What a way of ruining a game, a community, everything.

    Sad times.

    I have GOOD news, please read. I think the game is not showing us a remastered Warcraft 3 but the afterlife of J. Arthas Brack and Bobby Kil'jaeden. The bad terrain and trees show us that they will go to hell.
    EDIT: Reforged has disappointed me a lot so just wanted to heal my brain.

    Because World Editor defaults to HD assets even if you don't own Reforged.

    Even classic graphics looks like shit now, GG Blizzard....

    Why couldn't they just have left classic at just that, classic? Why did they have to mess around with it? If something is not broken, don't fix it. What a gang of absolute fucking donkeys.

    Why the fuck am I downloading 29 GBs worth of content if I haven't purchased Reforged?

    Excuse me, Blizzard, what the fuck? Why do I need 29 GBs worth of content that I will never fucking see?

    You can also add -launch to the shortcut, this works for both wc3 and the world editor.

    I can play only with classic. Reforged mode cannot be enabled. But classic mode looks fine. I had to adjust resolution, and once matched, it looks good.
    In game, I saw many people complaining on various issues. I can't believe they released us broken release.

    another messy launch, oh well.

    also worrying about performance, not sure about the purchase as of yet.

    At least it looks somewhat inviting now, the colors are more vibrant, still looks strange in some places (neutral creeps, grey textures hard to look at/seem distorted).

    This abomination called 'Reforged' makes me regret saying 'I hate WoW'.

    Oh, it's not that imported stuff doesn't work... it's that the game doesn't read the object editor changes.

    you’re right. I’m going to have to take back some of what I said. I set the resolution properly and now classic looks better. It’s not 100% as it used to look but it’s better than before.
