At long last…


When you killed my classic client multiplayer experience i hope in new client i will be able to play with my CLASSIC VOICE LINES (poland) otherwise i feel cheated and robbed by you


Well done! I hope the release will go smooth for all of you, including the developers.


Thanks for the update Kaivax.

So does this mean no new cinematics?


Any gameplay balance Changes coming ?


I think it was said right away that aside from the intro, all other cinematics will be just upscaled instead of remade.

Nothing about layout changes to Capital city or Ogrimmar? That’s a shame that those assets are not included alongside with a major rework of those cities. Oh well, excited to see what’s changed and what’s not.


Color bug is not fixed ? You gotta be kidding me… :D:D:D:D
It’s been here since day 1 when beta arrived. Come on guys.

It’s the only actuall thing that TRULY makes team games unplayable.


What will happen to classic BNet?


Great work! Is there a ladder though? That is so important to me.


Can you confirm if there is any new servers? Brazil, LatAm, for example?


Download is finished and now its time to wait… bit more than 3 more hours to go! Il be streaming at Twitch for anyone who doesnt want to buy Reforged just yet :slight_smile:


So are only these 3 cities reforged? (Maps)

Well, I haven’t seen it yet, but just in case i want to say that Dalaran and Silvermoon are being recolour of ech other but Sm winth wing everywhere and depressing autumn are not iconic, the same goes for Stratholme

Looking at Campaign changes one can truly realize that all the plans related to singleplayer were cancelled.

Now Reforged is officially an engine update & skin pack worth of 30$


Looks like most of the known issues are fixed?

That was a long way, I hope it led us to our final goal - desent recration of our fond memories… Warcraft III at its finest.

Weird they didnt have that “recently fixed” section in the thread. Also didnt tell they fixed any of it in the New patch notes. I have a feeling they try to make us forget the problems.
