Warcraft 3 Reforged: Would you like to see further expansions matching WoW lore? (poll)


#1

And all campaigns, new maps, units, environments and so on that comes with it? Experiencing some epic missions from WoW lore in a RTS perspective, how does that sound to you guys?

I have talked to my friends and asked this question on non-Blizzard forum. And people are all for it. This is dream come true.

Imagine Pandaria themed maps in War3. Imagine how rich World Editor will be with each expansion. I am so pumped just talking about it.

Warcraft 3 Reforged is a potential to do something more, not just stop at remastering classic. Imagine a WOTLK campaign, 1st campaign will cover alliance memorable missions, 2nd will cover horde and 3rd joint cooperation to bring Arthas down.

Guys let me know what you think:
