    Since this is happening, I am wondering about what will happen to the clans?
    Will they be shared among both versions? Or will there be a new system?
    I intend to get back into that so it would be nice to know about it.

    The source is behind a login wall...
    Makes sense since such cinematics are very costly to make, especially for a product that will never be sold at full price and will have limited player base.

    If you look at lemon sky studio website, one of their only fully developed game is basically a clone of the Warcraft universe. We have gone full circle.

    Heroes of Charge?? HAHA.. This is a Chinese mobile game 刀塔传奇(literally "legend of DotA") by Lilith Studio. I think all designs of characters in it are copyright infringement. Because apparently, copyright of DotA belongs to either Blizzard or Valve.

    From their website:

    Edit: I just looked into it and uCool (the company for which LS made the game) copied Lilith Studio game. Blizzard sued Lilith Studio while they sued uCool. This is resulted in a legal mess where basically Blizzard lost the case somehow (source). Today we have Warcraft 3 which is being made (at least visually) by a company who made the clone of a Chinese mobile game which itself copied the Wacraft universe so much that it looks traced.

    Here are the two games side by side:

    New resolutions count as remastered? What is wrong with this world ...

    Also, the company working on this created a copy of a copy of a Blizz game?
    Oh the irony.

    I mean yeah it's not that surprising but if it's the only way to get Reforged, then we will have to accept it.

    Sadly, all I wish is a quality controller from Blizzard's 'A' team

    WC3 supports all resolutions as is. The UI is being remastered to better suit the new resolutions such that pillar boxing approaches will not be required and it will look more modern.
    There may be reasons behind this. Anything from price to experience to prior track record. In any case they will certainly be offering Blizzard a better deal than any US or EU based company could...

    Blizzard has outsourced artwork for ages. We all remember the StarCraft 2 Heart of the Swarm cinematic leaks due to an error made by the graphic company responsible for creating them.

    There surely are reasons behind it, like you know, money and effort and all.
