Warcraft III: Reforged Developer Update

And grass. And trees. And fog. And volumetric thingy. And seven thousand other things as well.


I´ve been a fan of Blizzard since the lost Vikings back on 1992 on PC… and seeing all this is just heartbreaking, this is goodbye for me, so long my dear childhood game company…


“First off, we want to say we’re sorry to those of you who didn’t have the experience you wanted…”

You mean the experience you sold us at BlizCon? The experience you advertised? That your page is STILL advertising? That you’ve clearly botched and continue to mislead people on? That experience?


Well… Sorry Blizz.

What you essentially say is:
You know you’ve messed up, but you don’t have any intention to fix the core problems your customers have with the game.

Then i can only say: You won’t get my money.


Thank you for the update. I’m loving this game again and I can’t thank you enough!

Aside from that, does anyone know if both Grubby and ToD will cast Reforged Tournaments together?

Yes, that’s the weasel cop out of the century right there. I mean, they could have easily released the game with same models and number of polygons like in 2002 and simply said that same sentence.
I mean, obviously, the thing I was fearing the most is losing my three polygon footman shield, with which I have developed a strong emotional and nostalgic connection over the years. Luckily, we have the “old graphics” switch, so I can relive that unforgettable shield.

What a bunch of nothing lol


Well, at least we have phones, don’t we?


You f-ed up Blizzard, your letter should have been:
“Hi, community we f-ed up we didn’t give W3 - reforged any resources at all we f-f-ed up. We are sorry that we nuked the old WC3 and that we removed the old NMR system with clans. We are sorry that we didn’t change the story at all. You should expect more from us. We will fix it! Thank you for your patience!”

If you do not change this statement I will never order a Blizzard game again.


Please compare your reforged with a mod that several people have done in their spare time before you reforged in 2017 (Armies of Azeroth mod for StarCraft 2)!

It is much much better than Blizzard reforged !!!
This shows all about how much blizzard has tried to do nothing with the game!!!

The plan was to make a couple of mods and charge as for a new game?


Lack of planning or just the lack of care for the decades-old fans
Could have communicated that the release would not have all the FEATURES PROMISED. BEING HONEST, would have changed everything.
Start following the advice of your characters.

“We have paid the price for sharing this world, and we have forgotten what makes us strong.” Yes Blizzard you have FORGOTTEN!!


well blizzard is dead i mean 100% dead i would like that blizzard would burn to the ground and went out like the legend we all know it to be in our hearts NOT LIKE THIS GARBAGE ALL IT WANTS NOW IS MONEY MONEY MONEY MMMMMM SWEAT MONEEEEEEY NOW BECUSE IF YOU DONT BRINGE ENOUGH MONEY YOU ARE FIRED ON THE SPOT now if it would burn dow i would fell nothing exept joy and happines i mean the blizzard we all know and love is dead it was dead long ago.we all thout that warcraft 3 reforget would fix some of the damages they did but it didn’t this ruined the perfect game we all played as kids.warcraft 3 reforget is the worst game in gaming history.they lied to us and stole from us and now we will make they pay for that

Oh screw you! “we’re sorry to those of you who didn’t have the experience you wanted”
You cannot just apologize sincerely for once? Just ONCE can you act like you give a damn? This is saying “Sorry YOU didn’t like it. Sorry it is not good enough for you.”

What hearts are you pouring into Reforged? You literally did NOTHING to the game and paid a third party studio to do the models and textures. That is it. You actually remade the policy much more than the actual game itself.

Not in game cutscenes because as to not steer too far from the original game? What PR diarrhea is this?? YOU ARE SELLING THIS GAME WITH FALSE ADVERTISEMENTS WITH THOSE SAME CUTSCENES!

You deserve all this backlash and far worse. The disgusting murder of what made Blizzard once great is insulting to all it stood for and frankly, you should go bankrupt at this point. You don’t deserve to be called a game studio when in the last few months, all you did was write poor apologies for stupid things you pulled. There is a good reason all this backlash keeps happening. WAKE UP ALREADY!


It’s not even that. Read the first bit. They say “we’re sorry to those of you who didn’t have the experience you wanted”
That’s the same as saying “Sorry it isn’t good enough for you”
Sorry for having high standards like I dunno, making sure the game works in the first place.

Honestly I could look past all the broken promises, the lies and the lousy release, it’s nothing new and is to be expected from any game developers in 2020.

What I can’t look past is the disgusting predatory greed, you are using to choke the creativity and freedom modders and map creators.

You guys used to promote map creation, and had a thriving community of people absolutely living your game, but because you missed out on DOTA 2 you change direction and behave like a entitled upset little teenager.

And then the legality of your new EULA comes into question.

I seriously hope that you guys are able to find whatever hole you threw your morality into, brush it off and show us that you are not another greedy developer not giving two craps about their users, we don’t need another Bethesda.


Better yet. Why waste MONEY on this husk of a studio?

Well, on my part and many thousands more, I´m sorry you didn´t got our money as you wanted, and we´d like to share our plans on what´s coming next:

-Never buy anything from you again. You forget the customers and loyal fans are the ones that made the company as you are.



How dare you to write such a disgusting statement when it’s you who set our expectations, when it’s YOU who told us it’s going to be so much more than a remastered version of the game!

There are some individual concerns we’ve seen that we’re not currently planning to address and we wanted to give the community a heads-up.

Let me reminds you Blizzard why you decided to call this Reforged and not Remastered to begin with:

Warcraft® III: Reforged™ is a complete reimagining of a real-time strategy classic. Experience the epic origin stories of Warcraft

How can you put a statement like this on the main page of the game and then then write something like this???

as we talked about last year at BlizzCon, we did not want the in-game cutscenes to steer too far from the original game. We went a little deeper into the thought process behind that at the show, but the main takeaway is that the campaigns tell one of the classic stories in Warcraft history, and we want to preserve the true spirit of Warcraft III and allow players to relive these unforgettable moments as they were

You could preserve the original stories through a different campaign and at the same time keep the reforged campaigns and have the best of both worlds, maybe even go further with this and add WC1 and WC2 campaigns but that’s a different topic.



What a horrible, passive aggressive, poorly thought-out excuse for an “apology.” smh

Why remove something that you never cared for anyway? When was the last time you actually patched RoC? I played that frequently, I enjoyed the different unit balance in RoC Campaign aswell melee games. And you just ruined it.

I’m just disappointed.
