EDIT: I didn’t expected this topic to blew up as it has, I wanted to thank you for partaking in this discussion and voicing your opinion (whether you’re in favor of their decisions or not.). I made this post in the first place to give my opinion regarding the various announcements that was made during the Warcraft 3 Panel and the dev interview (that was reported by Back2Warcraft) and how I didn’t agree to their decisions and that the Warcraft 3:Reforged team should give what was advertised during Blizzcon 2018 when they stated taking preorders. I’ve made mistakes in my original post (like the rebalancing point) I’ve removed the false information and I apologise for the mistake, it was never my intention to mislead anyone. All I ask for is to respect everyone’s opinion in this thread, stay in the subject of this topic and add constructive criticism to the topic.
(TLDR: Thanks for participating in this topic, Be respectful to everyone’s opinion, Stay in the subject of this topic, Add constructive criticism and to the Warcraft 3: Reforged team : Give to the consumers what you’ve promised a year ago)
So, from what we heard at the Warcraft 3 Panel and the dev interview, a lot of promised content have been cut:
- Cutscenes (Apart of Arthas Vs Illidan) - Cut
- New English voice over with WoW voice actors - Cut
- Storyline coherence with W3 event depicted in WoW (Except buildings changes and map changes like The Culling of Stratholm) - Cut
What do we have now? A $40 reskin of a 18 year old game.
I am genuinely considering refunding it because at this point, Warcraft 3: Reforged is a deceitful piece of media, a shame and a stain to Warcraft 3’s legacy and the Warcraft Licence in general, from it’s announcement t’ll today.
From it’s announcement at last year Blizzcon, they’ve showed the announcement cinematic, Then they stated that they woudn’t be remaking every cinematic, Some preordered at that moment and many people were pissed but we gave them a pass. They’ve shown (and made a playable demo) with new cutscenes, new voice-over with WoW voice actors and storyline coherence with WoW. We preordered at that moment with the hope of experiencing a new, better Warcraft 3.
But we should not, WE MUST NOT give them a pass on the missing features that we, as customers, were promised a year ago. We were promised the features mentionned above.
I’ve pre-ordered the game in the hope of experiencing Warcraft 3 with better graphics, better voiceovers better gameplay and better cutscenes and ALL of this is cut. We’ve been lied to, we’ve been decieved.
The only way to fix this mess, is to deliver what you’ve promised to your customers.
