RTS games will never be a “Megahit”…if your definition of “Megahit” is anything like Apex or Fortnite.
I think the game will grow and be successful in its own rite, and I honestly think it will be more popular than Starcraft 2, because the SC2 team delved too deep into an Esports only model which failed its fanbase.
Warcraft 3 has always been about everyone - It’s been an esport but everyone felt like a huge part of the community, especially back in 2003-2008-9 when I was very active in the game.
If Blizz turns this into an SC2/Overwatch “ESPORTS LOL” it’ll fail, because that model doesn’t appeal to EVERYONE…but if they just remaster and let the game take care of itself, it will. Trust me - we WANT casuals from other platforms and genres to come to warcraft 3…we need the arcade/custom game people, we need the new people, we need the returning players, we need curious WoW players, we need all of that. We don’t need 10-15 more professionals…I want this to be a huge community again, so I really hope it appeals to more than just the competitive people (like myself).
I’m slowly watching Esports models destroy their own games and it’s pretty sad. Overwatch for one had a ton of potential. Oh well.
