    Then why are you telling me it's to enable crossplay? It doesn't make sense.

    The actual reason as William corroborated in THW discord was to enable mapmakers to "make sure their maps looked fine in Reforged", since you can access Reforged graphics in the editor regardless of whether you have Reforged. But it being mandatory and not opt-in/opt-out is fucking insane.

    It's singleplayer content, no singleplayer content in game = no reason to pirate it. I assume it's why there is no campaigns yet.

    Sigh, you need workarounds for these if someone can't hack-fix them:
    1.31.1 [Bug] Loading saved game breaks some unit events
    You're saying I could make Reforged maps without having Reforged? But then, how would I test them!?
    So, what does make sense then?
    The issue is that they might make an online custom campaign database like StarCraft II's Arcade but in Reforged also for .w3n files. That would kill communities. No one would upload maps here because it would be useless.

    It will most probably be re-added soon though.

    And even if it's only for that lightening and whatnot Reforged brings so you could have it on Classic, why the whole 20gb+?

    Heh, imagine if custom campaigns will come back... as DLC.

    I actually haven't found a way to enable the Reforged renderer in-game. So, I don't think that's possible.

    Anyway, you can see HD content in the editor on Classic now. That's what I meant.

    Maybe on Netease.
    It would be too problematic for ActiBlizz to make contracts with mappers and not risk copyright infringement and whatnot. I don't think the EULA would protect them then.
    Oh, the tease.

    @Strydhaizer Thanks for pointing out that my status is outdated

    Most importantly: I have 2 questions that I want someone to please answer or attempt to answer:
    1-Is BLIZZARD EVER GOING TO REMASTER WC3 EVER AGAIN?
    2-ARE THEY GOING TO IMPROVE TERRAIN AND GRAPHICS?
    What do you guys think?

    The point of having reforged assets in the editor while not being able to test it in game is that to see what your map will look like in Reforged, but that's about it.

    I heard someone talking about this aswell, Blizzard probably intentionally did that to avoid competition with the current available campaigns in the modding community. They're probably planning to make DLC campaigns soon.

    More work?
    You're funny.
    By the time of another Reforged, the current gameplay mechanics will be ancient.

    No. Nova Covert Ops was the first and probably last SCII official custom campaign.
    Fans have created lots of custom campaigns which require via Galaxy Editor playing.

    They have nothing to compete against. They will actually get more Reforged purchases in the long run with fans doing work for free.

    Maybe they decided to lock the custom campaign for 2 weeks or so in order to avoid players focusing on custom campaigns instead of reforged campaign content?

    I don't know but this is something I definitely want an answer for. I want to make my own Reforged campaigns. I have so many ideas.

    Where are those who defended Reforged to death?...

    Where is the administrator of this website who said that the classic team was working very hard and the models looked impressive?...

    Who will have the balls to defend this garbage?...

    Who will explain to me why Blizzard has taken away the game I paid for more than 10 years ago and I've been playing since then?...

    Where is my original dubbing?...

    Where are my original menus?...

    Where is my original Battle.net?...

    As guilty are those who have participated in the development of this "game" as the acolytes who have sold their ideals and principles for money to defend this infectious trash...

    I hope it was worth it.

    I am still working on updates for my campaigns. I just can't believe that they would not support custom campaigns. I believe they just couldn't finish the feature on time. In any case, I will refrain from buying Reforged until this feature is in.

    Alas, I had a map in the makings for years now. After reading through the thread, there is no inspiration left to finish it. Pity, I had big hopes for Reforged.
