I was so hoping for it to come and Blizzard really is doing it !!! I mean i loved WC 3 and we spend so much time on that game, also on LAN Party's. Beside that i also hope there will be a free editing corner again, where people can bring their mod's and "Minigames" (stuff like Dota and tower defense happened here before).

 

This is really good news.

 

Edit.:

Sorry for offtopic, but i was really sad about the openingannouncement of Diablo.... it looks like there is more effort in mobile versions, than ever before and PC doesnt get any attention for Diablo anymore. I really was hoping not to see any mobile stuff anymore and then this immortal announcement killed it perfectly...

Meh... I mean it looks good but I've already played the game and the whole nostalgia thing going on in the games industry and community thing isn't for me. Grats for the people who wanted it I guess? But wouldn't you have rathered WCIV?

I would have loved a playable version of WarCraft I+II (including the expansion) on windows 10 or a remastered version of those two, but I'm also really happy with WC III being reforged since I planned on playing the whole campaign a while ago. Thank you Blizzard. I like it and am really looking forward to it!

FUCK OFF!! No way, I would spend every penny on that

Dude, I can't wait to re=play the Arthas story line again. This was the only thing that actually got me excited at Blizzcon, especially after the majorly disappointing Diablo reveal.

Well I was going to pre-order it, as I did for Starcraft Remastered, then I noticed it was $30.  $30 for a game I already own?  Nah.

It is rather 30 bucks for a new game which uses the same story and mechanics.  Unlike the SC Remastered the WC3 Remastered version doesnt just throw a better 2D looking filter on the screen. High quality models and shaders, remade cutscenes and interludes, revamped UI. We didnt get that for SC Remastered.

Warcraft 3 was a great game, no doubt.

I played it 3 times IIRC, the story and the characters were very interesting.

It was a much better game then SC 2 ever was, it had everything SC2 is lacking.

For everybody who didn't play WC3 back then (probably because they were too young) this new version will probably be money well spent.

But for others who played WC3 back then - maybe even more then once or twice?

30 bucks for practically the same game, just new graphic?

Thank you, but no thank you.

I used to play it when it came out. As a story fan who plays a lot of campaign sessions it is a must have for me. As I mentioned earlyer, SC Remastered was just a basic reskin. But with WC3 we also get high detailed models, new cutscenes and interludes. The Remaster aspect is intense compared to SC:R. Custom games will also get a lot more new elements from these additions.

For multiplayer and ranked fans it might be a pass. They would have to get used to new muscle memories when looking at the new models. Most of the gameplay in nomral matches will be the same anyways.

Personally I am afraid of new cutscenes.

In Warcraft 3, Starcraft and Diablo 2 cutscenes were absolutly fantastic. They were full of emotion, there are tons of memories I still have. Great characters, great scenes, great emotions.

However, I do not like the cutscenes from Starcraft 2. Sure, they "look" good. But they are totally empty. There is absolutly no soul in them. No emotion. They consist of action, action, action. And dialogues that are beyond horrible: "I am so mighty, I will kill you. NO, I will kill YOU...." If seems like if you take the IQ of both parties and combine them you MAY reach a 3-digit-number...

There is exactly one scene in SC2 that was great (and memorable to me): Ironically enough it is a scene which shows a story-part of Starcraft 1. Nova, being left behind as Zerg approach. A storyline, that was established in SC1, but only told, not shown.

It is a fantastic video. There is not much action. There is no shouting about how allmighty someone is, how he will crush his enemies.

No, there is a real character. There is a situation you can relate you. There is great music and there is emotion.

Everything that had Blizzard games 10 years ago in abundance.

And everything that Blizzard is sadly lacking now.

 

That's why: No, I defintily do NOT want new cutscenes, because I am afraid they will be much worse then the original in WC3.

I know what you mean. But there was nothing about changing the story scripts so far that we would see a totally different story with cheesy Starcraft2 elements.
From what we could see on Blizzcon the camera angles, scripts and so on are the same for the new rendered cutscenes. The models of the Orc and Human are just high polished and modern but follow the same story of the scene. For the ingame cutscenes we had emotionless models standing around while talking. While I think both types of cutscenes were awesome in the original, these tunes would just add more positive flavour. They do not change the script into a Starcraft Story. The rendered cutscenes will just be more modern visually and the ingame cutscenes will now have more natural movement and emotions from the models, which is also just visual. There was not a hint that stories would change. I can even imagine the dungeon crawling missions to be more immersive this way.

The only thing that could change is the layout of some missions as we saw with Stratholme. That may be interesting because we would try out new strategies. But the new layout, at least in Stratholme, did not change anything about the story either.

I know nostalgia forbids any changes, but my nostalgia would be heavily pleased if the story gets more visual flavour while being the same adventure. And it seems to be this way from what we could see yet.


Yes, I am very positive about it. But if they said they would change the story to fit World of Warcraft I wouldn't look at that game either. If they just change the ending with Illidan flying away, because he looked pretty dead in TFT, that would be the only thing I could tolerate.

If the cutscenes don't alter the characters / story / dialogue that would be great.

With changes in the map-layout I have no problem.

Let's hope the best :)

Well... To be honest i am not sure what to think about it. It isn't warcraft 4, but it's still something.

At least it isn't Warcraft Immortal.

So much has happened in the World of Warcraft world since the Arthas storyline in W3TFT - I'd say there's enough scope from all the expansions to easily make a Warcraft 4 split into 3 parts much like StarCraft 2. What an epic campaign it would be against Deathwing!

      WarCraft 3: Reforged was always hoped to be a platform for potential mod remakes of the earlier games and much more creativity besides, but after the very rocky launch that seemed to fall to the wayside a bit. But now we have a really great project to look forward to, as Chronicles of the Second War, a WC2: Tides of Darkness remake is in testing and already has 4 missions ready, as well as a cool trailer!
      You can download the mod, for now featuring just the first 4 missions over at HiveWorkshop!
      A dedicated team is working on this awesome project and have already done a whole lot, from the new unit models, campaign implementation and so much more. You can check out their aims, features for the mod and everyone involved below:
      And here's a slightly earlier  video showcasing the Orcs:

      Nano from the Nostalrius project is back with a second source that allegedly confirmed that Phase 6 and Naxxrammas are planned for early December 2020 with The Burning Crusade Classic Beta launching in March 2021, and we also find out that TBC Classic may launch sooner than expected.
      Barrens Chat reports that Nano had a second source confirming Phase 6 rollout and details about TBC Classic. Obviously, nothing has been officially confirmed yet by Blizzard so take the rumor with a grain of salt.

      There have been some rumors going around recently about a potential second Warcraft movie that may be in development. These were somewhat vague and just mentioned that the production company for the first movie, Legendary Entertainment, were "already discussing" the next Warcraft movie behind the scenes and that it would wipe the slate clean and start the franchise over. The next rumor had a little more weight to it, coming from a relatively reliable "scooper", Daniel Ritchman via Movie Web, and claimed that the second movie is actually already in development. All related articles mention the poor critical and audience receptions of the first movie, as well as it's success in China and high box office returns from overseas.
      Now all of the above rumors were a little under our benchmark, as it's all very vague, but something new came up today which definitely got our attention, as first noticed by Wowhead:
      Metzen was also involved in the first movie, co-producing it and being an un-credited writer, and he also had a cameo appearance in it as a turbaned perfume vendor in Stormwind. Whether his comment was just as a member of the public and obviously interested in seeing more Warcraft or he knows something more about this rumor is unclear, although it seems difficult to believe a project like that would be made without his knowing about it. In any case, his mentioning it definitely made us a lot more curious.
      We've also recently seen some community wishes for a potential Lich King movie, with Henry Cavil as Arthas (with some posters whipped up as well), which definitely got everyone's vote for the next attempt at starting the Warcraft cinematic universe, and it seems pretty likely that regardless of which iconic storyline they choose to adapt, Metzen should be involved to some degree. The first movie's director, Duncan Jones, previously both shared his own plans for a potential trilogy, and commented on the fact that a sequel wouldn't be happening as far as he knows, which is true even if the above rumor turns out to be true.

      NOT part of the rumor, just a fan interpretation.
      So, what do you think of the rumor? And which part of the Warcraft mythos should be covered in this potential re-launch of the brand on the big screen?

      A while ago, we reported that Blizzard registered a trademark that hinted at an animated Diablo series. Today, we finally got more details via Gamespot.
      According to the LinkedIn profile of Nick van Dyk, co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios who also produced Skylander's Academy on Netflix, the unannounced Diablo series will be rendered in anime style and is currently in pre-production for distribution worldwide through Netflix.
      Nick van Dyk's profile also mentions that he developed and sold an animated series based on Blizzard's Overwatch franchise with his creative partner, but we have no clue what that means or who bought it at this time. Do you think we'll see an Overwatch animated series as well?

      Thank you for contacting Customer Support. We are currently experiencing a high volume of tickets and are not able to respond to your issue at this time. We have provided some resources below that may be of help resolving the issue. If you are still in need of assistance, please respond and a Game Master will assist you as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience and understanding
      read the original ticket
      Game Master Marrekwethir, at your service. Thank you very much for your patience as your ticket traveled here. :]
      I'm sorry to hear you ran into some trouble with looting the cache at the end of your Mythic+ dungeon! I know those runs take a lot of time and effort each week, and it's always a pain to walk away without reward for your work. I hope I can help clarify what happened here.
      In cases when you can see the cache, but you cannot open it, your character was not eligible for loot due to not being tapped for the final boss kill. This typically happens when your character disconnects or dies and releases spirit, but does not get back to tap the boss again before the rest of the group finishes the kill.As much as I wish there were more I could do to help out with this, we Game Masters are unable to manually generate loot from these caches. I know it's not the answer you had hoped for, so I do truly appreciate your understanding!
      Thank you again for bringing this to my attention today. I hope this helps you along your way!!

      apparently ya'll dont read tickets  we didnt recieve the loot cause the boss rezan glitched and i have visual proof  stop sending form letters  here is a screen shot
      Thank you for contacting Blizzard Entertainment Customer Support! I'm Game Master Draechsam and I'll be looking into this for you today.
      I see that you are having an issue with being unable to loot your Mythic+ cache at the end of a Atal run due to Rezan glitching. After investigating your claim, it would seem that there is aren't any reports of this having a bug. At least, nothing has been discovered yet. 
      If you would please submit an in-game bug report with any information related to your inability to loot the chest due to credit not being earned, this would greatly be appreciated and it would help us gather the information we need. To cover all our bases here, I've gone ahead and shot up a report myself. Even though I've gone and done that, it's extremely important due to the fact that this report you send gives way more information than my own. The system actually takes a snapshot of what is going on in the game, including things that we on our end can not see such as buffs and debuffs. The more information, the better.  We've set up forums that our Quality Assurance department uses to track ongoing issues. You can reach them by using the following page:
       I completely get how frustrating this can be, especially when you've done this before with no issues. I honestly wish there was more I could do for you at moment, but right now it's in the hand's of the developers and when they can fix this issue. I know they are actively working on a patches to get fixes for issues like this out as fast as they can. As the previous Game Master mentioned, we're unable to generate the loot that would be received from a Mythic+ cache. 
      I understand this may not be what you were hoping to hear, but I’m glad I was able to clear things up. I do hope you have a good rest of your day.
      not fixed
      Specialist Game Master Endrivenna here, hope the day's treating you well so far despite all the crazy going in the world the last several months.
      We're sadly unable to step in and see about manually being able to bypass this and see what might have dropped and who might have won what possible item, but hopefully things will be fixed up asap! 
      As a fellow player, I understand that when you log into game, you would rather spend your time playing the game rather than report issues such as this. I wanted to thank you for reaching out to us and reporting this. I can certainly understand this extremely frustrating to you, as well as others that might have run into this.
      My goal as a Game Master and a fellow player is to ensure the best quality service possible. I hope that you will continue to reach out to us if you have any other concerns in the future. We are always here to assist our valued players, such as yourself, with whatever problems they encounter. Thanks again for taking the time to reach out to us.
      If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to let us know, and I do hope the rest of your day goes well.
      ok you say you want to help yet all u said was i want to help read the original ticket  give me an avenue of how to get it resolved.
      sincerely  a 14 year player who has sustained your company who is highly annoyed
      Game Master Denvorer here to assist you today and I hope your day is going excellent.
      I apologize for any frustrations this situation has caused.  I completely understand that you were doing a Mythic + with a group and killed one of the bosses in there, but it was not registering that you killed that boss which resulted in that timer for that run to expire.
      We do try our best to help our fans when we can however, there are cases that we are not able to help and assist since we do not have the log data in order to verify what exactly happened and also our tools may have technical limitations that may prevent us from assisting.  In this case here, we can see the Mythic + run and the bosses that were killed, but we are unable to verify if the timer in that Mythic + had already expired nor can we verify what loot may have been provided in those chest at the end of the time nor are we able to adjust or change a players Mythic keystone.  Unfortunately, we aren't able to randomly give out loot to our fans based on what was reported here since we must have evidence through our logs to allow us to show to our Dev team why we provided the loot this way.
      Because of this, we aren't able to do much outside of suggest to submit a bug report to our QA and Dev team on the forums to let them know what you have recently experienced in that dungeon so they can check and make sure that killing Rezan in that dungeon is giving the proper credit to our fans.  You are so far the first to report his happening to us, but I will make sure to report it to the appropriate people on our end in case we receive anymore contacts that this is happening.
      Thank you for your time and I hope the rest of your day is enjoyable.
