WC3 not starting since patch

I installed 1.33 and now it won’t load past the first lion gate screen and just freezes there. I’m on a PC and have reinstalled, and tried disabling all startup apps. Tried to send a ticket but couldn’t generate one of the reports.

  1. Delete everything in Documents\Warcraft III

  2. If your graphics card doesn’t support directX11, try adding a launch argument -graphicsapi Direct3D9

  3. Sometimes even uninstalling leaves local files, so if you had 1.32 Quenching manually clear out their _retail_ folder

And while this may sound dumb, make sure you’re not playing the PTR version.
