“It’s incredibly important to us to first get it right for the existing community, and then we want to do things to appeal to more people. … But in so doing, we need to make sure that you guys who are in this room, that core audience that’s never left this game and love it to death, and don’t want to see us change it so drastically that you don’t recognize it anymore. That’s our first mission, to make sure that you guys give us a thumbs up when it ships.”
That is, the classic Game with a visual improvement similar to that of any remake and with some basic functions such as automatic engraving and the recognition button.
And maybe some new campaign from vonus.
It really is something quite cheap for any game today. It is more if they have money to order all those expensive models to put in the first person and not do those cinematics to do in the first person. So you have the money to make the decent W3 remake.
this version of reforged is the least financially viable of all possible outcomes. it was seriously undercooked, rushed and ultimatively ruined due to activisions greed. bobby just couldnt have enough of these sweet dollar bills and he wants to keep them all for himself. better fire some ppl so he can have more excess money he cannot spend anymore because its basically infinite at that point. he is a dollar puppet, corrupted from within. cant wait for the day when activision collapses, choking on their greed. i hope the remains get collected by EA and then sucked dry ol westwood style before being buried in toxic chinese soil to rest.
all the money you spent on reforged preorders went straight into bobbys behind as the warcraft team and funds got cut down while you kept shoving more money into that blackhole of greed at the same time. its insane. its not like activision couldnt afford some fan service for one of their key IPs with the insane amount of cash they milk out of their customers.
reforged is the ugly face activision sees when they look in the mirror. activision cannot get rid of reforged, it is eternally attached, always remembering the world of how activision has ruined blizzard so much they are incapable of even remastering their own games.
Because for having 19 models of trolls you simply throw some bucks to a company on the other side of the world and you even have a good chance that they are indeed good.
For the reconnection button you have to rework your network layer with all the performance and security consequences.
