    This is very exciting, and important for calling more old and new players back to wc3.

    i would say signifciant issues are a guarantee especially when the game patching updates becomes a weekly occurance and an automatic things you can't opt out of when you upgrade to reforge.

    The will probably test a few basic custom maps.

    Custom Campaigns will more then likely break or have their custom models be borked or overwritten depending on unit path and any changes made.

    All the recent patches the last few years since the first 1.28 hit can tell you what to expect. For legacy content. THe outlook is a major headache. Hopefully there is a classic and Reforged versions and not simply classic vanishing once you upgrade to Reforged.

    All we have to go by is the patching constantly breaking everything last 2 years. Outlook isnt so good for legacy mod content surviving when patch updates become a weekly occurance considering SC1R weekly launcher updates.

    This is awesome why exactly? Because current year?
    I thought this was a remaster of an old game, keeping units' appearance as close to original as possible.

    Possibly because it opens up new options for many map makers, possibility to create more female units (which were lacking in every other race than the Night Elves) and the other way around. I'd also aspect female players (why not male too) would prefer to sometimes play with a different stylized hero than normally. Overall it adds variety to the game, which equals in more options and choices. Can't really imagine this being a bad option to have.

    Maybe it was just supposed to be a cultural thing as in the tribal women of the horde were not warriors but took care of the young and household. But I agree, some units like Witch Doctor and Shaman (+Far Seer) could be women.

    I don't mind having choices and additional skins for melee and custom maps, but I hope default army composition stays the same as it was. In campaigns, too, because they are supposed to be the same campaigns as 16 years ago. You could always have male sentinels and female druids, as well as night elf mages and human shamans in wow and wc4.

    • Along with all the art updates, Warcraft III: Reforged now features female versions of male heroes and female versions of zombies.
    I think it is pretty clearly stated that the female variants are on-top of the male variants, so it is your pick which you'll use.

    I read in an article that Pre-ordering the Spoils of War Edition gives you 4 Custom Skins for Warcraft heroes? But nothing on the actual site package description seems to indicate any such thing, my question being, does Buying the Spoils of War Edition grant me anything extra for Warcraft 3 Reforged? If so, great, i'll get it, if not, don't care i'll just buy the Standard Edition.
