    Probably, but I have doubt in WC3: Reforged in Custom Maps.

    People need to save those blizzard updates, particularly the stable ones like 1.26, 1.27 etc. Although reforged will be awesome, I have big doubts that it will sprout as much custom stuff (particularly original non wc3 storyline campaigns) as did the original wc3 and some of those are pure gold in my book

    Of course they want you to buy the more expensive version, what do you think?

    Never thought blizzard would come to this, after all wc3 is pretty much a classic game

    Probably the legacy version will go free as Brood War did.

    Unlikely.
    Too many would rather get the free old version than the new one, especially since they can play with owners of the new version. That would mean less profit for Blizz, also because they can sell their skins only for the new version.

    Hey, I didn't say it will happen right away after Reforged's release. Probably, Reforged would go through some proper sales before classic Warcraft III becomes free.

    I still would not count on it happening at all. Skin sales and all.

    In fact, I expect them to drop all support for the classic version a few years after release of Reforged.

    They risk angering fans. The risk is not worth it. Those who will have Reforged by the time classic becomes free will be accustomed to it and will possibly get into microtransactions but the classics will just benefit from the parallel patching. Of course, they will add stuff to Reforged with patches which classic won't get but that's the psychology they're playing on fans with.

    They are currently fixing an issue where people who have pre-ordered Reforged are not receiving W3:RoC & TFT.

    Well, by reading the posts. I'm not feeling good about Warcraft's Future, hope it won't get ruined just like Diablo Immortal.
    Looks like i'm gonna quit being a Blizzard fan for now.

    There's not much you can do about that, sadly, just not to buy such a game when it comes out and also boycott with words.
    You don't own Warcraft so... life isn't always fun.

    EA: These people a damn whiny.

    Except... You've seen that that's exactly what they did with Starcraft, right? Released a Remaster for $$ and immediately made the OG available for free.

    And it seems to be working just fine over there, so why not here?

    They are not selling skins with SCR. I am also not sure if you can play with owners of the original if you own that remaster.
    The former would be more of a reason still.

    Owners of Anthology can play with those of Remastered because it's just a mere graphics toggle assuming you've patched your game of course through the Battle.net app.

    I read somewhere that standard wc3 will be included in reforge, effectively getting 4 games for 30$

    Even less if you buy from grey market places. Or free from black ones.

    You mean 3 games in one?

    Anyway yes Reforged will include both RoC and TFT keys for play before reforged goes live. That said there is currently an unspecified issue, so you will receive them at a later date.

    I would not be surprised if the keys go live with the next version of Warcraft III.
