Not really. Immortal will most likely be a freemium game, just like other mobile titles, i.e. free to play plus greedy microtransactions. The audience for that doesn't mix with the core D2 fanbase all that much. Plus, freemium games make the bulk of their money from "big spenders", who are unlikely to leave once they make a sufficient investment. Losing other, i.e. more casual, players would be pretty insignificant in terms of Immortal's revenue numbers.they did announce diablo immortal, remaster will split their revenues
There's a difference between thinking something might happen and hoping that it willif you still hope for remaster
Your logic is backwards - developing games is costly. No company is going to provide years worth of funding and development resources to a project unless they think it's a major one. And Diablo 3 was in development for many years, ergo - it was a big project. Maybe not as big as WoW, but still definetely up there.Diablo 3 was actually a side project, and they were in no rush to release it.
It's deleted, does anyone know where I can acces an archived version myb?There is a Reddit AMA with some of the the Lemonsky artists.
Hey guys, we work at Lemon Sky Studios, the studio that did the art for W3R. Lets talk. : warcraft3
no no no
do not jump into his claim i have never accused such, i did say others join his wagon not he recruited others to his wagon
this is the exact thing thats been going on so much through this whole thing

NO! no more mobile shit, diablo was bad enough

Your expectations are very unrealistic - there's no way they are going to completely remake Reforged. The best we can hope for is that eventually they will bring back all the missing features, stabilize the game and fix inconsistencies between Reforged SD and Classic. Maybe touch up on graphics a bit too, if we're lucky.I think they should just refund the game to everyone and restore the classic client then cancel Wc3 Refunded by removing it from battle.net launcher.
My bad, should have clarified that my "major" project I meant one that brings in a lot of money.
You're all acting like kids lol. Next off-topic post (i.e not about the patch notes) is getting the hammer.

P.S. I'm ready to take the hammer
That's lost invested money.
And be done with this site as well if censorship ensues.
uhhh any word on desync issue that some maps have?
kinda want to get back into working on my shitmaps again but the two i was working on both insta desync omegalul
I want them to remaster the game like they remastered starcraft.
They could have done that...You know what I mean...
1) Restore the classic client
2) Refund and cancel Reforged...Remove it from Bnet client and forget it
3) Remaster wc3 again with Blizzard quality
From my point of view,yes they do.The motive of initiating project Wc3:R was always about Chinese market.Activision-Blizzard have been on their hand and knees trying to entice the Chinese market
When did they actually follow advice?
Then the whole thing becomes more hilarious and sad, Activision-Blizzard have been on their hand and knees trying to entice the Chinese market, and they gave a flying fuck about their efforts, i'm going to guess that the next step to get a gain from Reforged assets is a mobile game.
Yeh it was same with World of Warcraft mists of PANDAria
Blizzard selling themself as shameless whore but chinese did not care
I mean they had one job:
a) make W3 HD and not touch anything else OR (especially not touch old W3)
b) make W4
Most Chinese players don't give a fxxx about which Wc3 version is the official one.They are used to downloading pirate version(earlier than 1.27) to play at multiple 3rd-party platforms.Take a look at the screenshot of our twitch-like site:

As you can see,none of our streamers are playing Reforged.Only those who have signed some contracts with Blizzard/Netease are willing to stream Reforged occasionally.Oh by the way,never mind the numbers of our live audience,you know,we Chinese are really good at faking numbers.
On the other hand,Netease Platform,the official agent of Blizzard in mainland China,is still supporting 1.27a with tons of microtransactions.One or two registered companies have been established recently to promote the monetizing of custom maps.So...unfortunately yeah,the new EULA seems like a shxx paper to Chinese players.
Guys, I remember a game that went to a sale a short time after launch. They did this because the game was very unsuccesful at launch. Do you think Reforged will go to sale soon? If so, how much is it going to be?
Afaik, as others have mentioned, China just don't give a fuck about Reforged.Out of curiosity, is Metacritic banned in China? Because that's where it would actually have an effect on Actiblizzion.
No,Metacritic is not banned,but only a few Chinese players have left comments and scored Wc3:R on that site.Thanks god,or Metacritic would have suffered from the power of our 50 cent army.is Metacritic banned in China?
I dont know as I have never seen someone using them in wc3. They were wc3 assets Blizz made for starcraft 2 in early 2010s and they were able to do a perfect job.are those working in vanilla war3?
Still awesome!Here is a HD quality video of these assets:
Three (edit: Four) more datamined models missing in game:
Some of them might be "skins" to unlock.I can understand about some creeps, but this! They are the main protagonists of not one, but two Campaigns. I mean c'mo Blizzard. This just doesn't make any sense!!!
I just did some research on Dragonfly Studios and found out that they have made a 3d Arthas fan-art for Warcraft. Arthas in Reforged should have looked like that instead of a guy ripped from an anime game.We got those assets converted to wc3 so yeah they are useable and epic, those were made by the studio I've mentioned DragonFly Studios
Thanks but it makes me sad too as Dragonfly made it for no profit. Its a fan-art but looks much better than what we got in Deforged.That's sweet!
I don't know what to say. I can't play anymore Warcraft 3 just because of the Reforged patch. I don't have my redeem code with me anymore seeing I didn't bind it back then (which is like a decade, lol). It's either I'm forced to buy Reforged to have new TFT and ROC codes (which I won't be doing soon since the negative reception for Reforged and how buggy it is in the meantime. Will probably wait for patches.) OR just not play in the meantime which is sad.
I think so. I doubt that pretty much anyone is going to buy the game now, at the current state and price. So, I'm not surprised at all that they're refusing refunds. People who got their refunds before the release, got them. Now when it's obviouse that the gmae is over priced and trashed by pretty much anyone, it's unrealistic for them to give refunds.Guys, I remember a game that went to a sale a short time after launch.
