    Look, you're making a bunch of assumption based on what they said, and then you're getting upset that they're not delivering on your assumptions. They never said they would have a public beta, or that they would let us know when they entered the beta stage.

    You seem to only believe what you want to believe.
    Your arguments are incredibly far-fetched. The release of Witcher 3 got delayed back then and it still was a great game in the opinion of many.
    There have been many games where the development was clouded in silence for several months or years and they still came out great.
    Do not jump to conclusions before having even the slightest of evidence.
    The fact that they are not telling the players a lot may be unpleasant for your personal safezone, but still does not mean anything about the state of their work or their game.

    Well, here is the confirmation of public beta, about game, classic is ofcourse always good that's why we are here but Reforged 'from what we have seen so far' atleast artwise was not looking great and I hope they'll really open that beta soon so people can give feedback about art,

    What do you think about Blizzard saying that they wont release anything big this year ?
    Does it me that wc3r can be delayed?
    Isn't it against EU law about preorders?

    More like they don't consider WC3R as something "big" as e.g. a new WoW expansion.

    They've comitted to release it this year as it's on the Bnet launcher.

    They meant with that, that they will not release any big new standalone game this year and that they will focus mainly on WoW Classic and Wc3 Reforged.
    However, timeframes can always be miscalculated and we will probably know more the next time we hear something from them again.

    What do you think they will do with the old campaign? And what's with their promise that you will be able to play the new Reforged campaign in SD (standard definition)?

    I started a thread on the official forums where I explain my predictions and questions in detail (link).

    My prediction is that a Reforged account will only have the official access to the new campaign, both in HD and SD.

    Whereas a pre-Reforged account will only have the official access to the old campaign in SD.

    But as the game is the same, a Reforged account will still be able to play a custom campaign that fully resembles the old campaign, both in HD and SD. The same goes for a pre-Reforged account that will be able to play the new campaign unofficially, just only in SD!

    My question, however, is how the new campaign in SD will deal with cutscenes.

    The only counter-argument is that I understand Blizzard incorrectly and a Reforged account will not be able to play the new campaign in SD (but choosing SD, you will get the old campaign). My response is that it would run contrary to the Blizzard ideal of deleting everything old (vanilla WoW is an exception to the rule) and not directly promoting two contradicting versions of the story at the same time.

    I think it'll be like with StarCraft: Remastered. You'll be able to play SD with a non-Reforged key and play Reforged material (including the custom scene) and standard/classic material with a Reforged key.

    Before making any assumptions, I'd appreciate if someone could clarify one thing to me. Regardless of having bought both RoC and TFT long ago, I still have to pay the full price for Reforged as a "new customer", and not only "upgrade" to get the new content (what I already have + via upgrade I get access to Reforged) as a "veteran"?

    What if Reforged will be delayed and not released in 2019?
    Will we get a refund? (preorders)

    Nah...

    If for whatever reason you don't want to buy Reforged anymore, you can contact Blizzard's customer support to cancel your preorder and get a refund. I've never heard of anyone having issues with that*.

    However, if @Whisper was asking if we will get compensated for the delay - it's very, very, very unlikely. You will either have to accept the delay or cancel the preorder to get a refund.

    Also @PrinceOfThaWest - as far as I'm aware, there are no unique bonuses or discounts for people who already owned Warcraft 3 before Reforged pre-orders became available.

    EDIT:
    *The only instance in which I could see Blizzard being reluctant to give someone a refund is if that person didn't have the classic W3 on his account and thus already received part of the "ordered product".

    Did Trump decided to make a new law about preorders in 10 months? US must have a fast working law system.

    Well, that source was somewhat unreliable after a more research.
