    Oh my god... they nerfed the Siege of Dalaran mission so damn hard that it's unreal.
    - There's no enemy bases, instead of that you get 9 special mages (UNITS) with a tiny escort.
    - The force field is so small that once you enter it, you're already fighting the Archmage.
    - You get a healing rune after each major engagement.
    - You get a lot of really strong creeps as help.
    - There's a lot of gold coin drops.
    - Enemy attacks are laughable.

    I don't want to restart, but I think it's totally possible to beat this mission without not only losing a single unit, but also without even making any units or upgrades.

    I clicked Play with a thought "Come on, it cannot be worse than absurd childish crap that was in TFT".
    I was wrong.

    This is by far the cringiest fight scene I have EVER seen. Even counting 90s Adventures of Sinbad series.

    And here comes the final beating showing that blizzard should have just let wc3 alone.
    Happy that preorder cucks got what they deserve, but that's about it.
    Wowie.

    I'm pretty sure that's more aimed towards "DLC" in maps where you can buy "activators" to unlock certain heroes which you normally can't pick e.g which is prominent in asian/russian maps.

    Maybe it's a game journalist inclusive dificulty, everyone knows they're kind of specially bad at playing games.

    Just Saying... The Truth!

    Hahahahahaha, I've actually lost the last undead mission with 1 second remaining :D I have to say, the final surprise attack is quite funny :D

    They came at me with like 5-6 Archmages that all cast Blizzard on me at the same time lol

    Yikes. People really love to hate, huh?

    Blizzard has been slow with fixing their shit in terms of classic wc3 patches, wont deny that. But if I purely judge reforged:

    In terms of game releases there are almost no bugless games on launch day. How about giving them a week before hopping on the hate train.
    I am not the most hopeful that everything will be fixed in a week, but expecting a bugless experience on launch day is delusional.

    How about no? It's been around 2 years since they started working on this graphics pack.
    Ah man, the banana I bought had no banana inside.

    All games takes years to make and all of them have some amount of bugs.
    This is nothing unique to reforged.

    Hell, WoW had dozens of issues on their patch last week. Was fixed within the day.

    edit: non blizzard example, check out the bugs in Witcher 3 on launch. There are a lot of hilarious footage floating around on youtube. Infamously the horse AI was pretty broken and ran up on top of houses and stuff. And that game won many awards.

    There are plenty of reasons to hate this patch though. For me personally, the most important one is that with this new bloated reforged client, my RAM usage when simply going to the main menu screen is already over 3GB, and I only have 4GB on my laptop. The only way to 'fix' this is to give us back the TFT client. They will not do this, so why would I wait one week to start hating.

    It is since they had more than the basis to work upon.
    No excuse.
    I understand there might be some bugs and stuff but that's why PTR exist before release.
    With Reforged, they've had loads of feedback.
    That's not gamebreaking.

    are you sure you remember how it looked like on the game engine? I have no issues with that video, except for logical issues. overall it's an improvement.

    If your main play mode was removed upon release of the patch without notification you would not be saying this.

    Six months ago it was Arranged Team players. Now it's Custom Campaigns. Just because you wanted to play the Blizzard Single Player campaign and are a happy clam doesn't mean everything is working honky dory.

    So you are flaming Blizzard because you are literary running on the minimum specified requirements? and then being surprised that it takes up a decent chunk performance wise.
    Then I shouldd be made at Dice because I cannot play the newest battlefield on my toaster

    Working with legacy code is worse than doing it from scratch, ask any programmer. They will agree.

    Having a PTR does not magically remove issues. Nor does it detect all of them.
    They already delayed the game once, which is more than many other companies would have done.
    If they delayed it again there would be another shit show on the internet, so they picked their poison I guess.

    People complain about lightning (among maaaany other nitpicks), most of which are far from gamebreaking.
    And it is your main way of getting around, it is not gamebreaking - true. But it does handicap you severly.
