    Hail War3 Players,

    We’ve been following the discussions the past couple days and want to thank you for your feedback as well as your support. First off, we want to say we’re sorry to those of you who didn’t have the experience you wanted, and we’d like to share our plans for what’s coming next.

    There were a few hours during launch day where we experienced server-load issues that impacted players’ ability to jump right in, but we were able to resolve those later in the day. Separate from that, we’ve seen community feedback about different aspects of Reforged that we wanted to take some time to address.

    Before we go on: the team is excited that Warcraft III: Reforged is finally upon us and we’re fully committed to supporting the game for a long time to come. The next few patches and updates we’ll discuss below are just part of our ongoing plans. This game is an integral part of the Blizzard DNA, with a team that loves Warcraft III, and we’re looking forward to pouring our hearts into Reforged and the Warcraft III community for the long term.

    One of the concerns with Reforged that we’ve seen are the visuals when selecting Classic Mode. We’ve identified the bug causing the colors and shading to look different from the original Warcraft III, and we’re testing a fix that will be incorporated in a larger patch addressing this issue and others. We expect to release that late this week. The patch will also address many other known issues, such as fixing some portrait animations and audio bugs, implementing some UI fixes, and more. Please keep an eye out for the patch notes for a detailed list of all the bug fixes.

    Another area of concern we’re seeing is regarding online features such as leaderboards and clans, which applies to all Warcraft III players, including those who haven’t purchased Reforged. At BlizzCon we talked a lot about how the team is actively working on standing up the back-end to ensure a smooth transition to this new MMR system, much like we did with StarCraft: Remastered. As with Remastered, these and other features will be included in a major patch for Reforged, which will also address the issue for players of the original game. We’ll share release plans as work progresses in the coming weeks—please be assured that the team is hard at work on standing these features up.

    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. As of Version 1.30 of the original game, we saw very low usage of tournaments and of the Reign of Chaos ruleset, so we removed both in mid-2019 (in Version 1.31). Eliminating the maintenance for underused elements has helped us streamline our overall support of the game and focus on areas impacting the most players. That said, we do anticipate that players who prefer Reign of Chaos will find custom games with similar rulesets, which we hope will help satisfy that concern.

    Related to that, 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 (albeit rebuilt with new animations and the higher fidelity art).

    We know this update doesn’t address all questions, but we’re committed to the development and support of this game. We hope you’ll keep an eye out for this week’s patch and future updates and let us know what you think as we continue fine-tuning things. Until then, thank you as always for your support and passion for Warcraft III. We appreciate all your feedback and will continue to keep the Warcraft III community updated on everything we’re working on.

    Sincerely,

    The Warcraft III: Reforged Team

    I cannot understand why Activision keeps aiming for Minimum Viable Product for suck big released.
    Last year they released Anthem which was not what they had shown at E3. Now we have WC3 which also didn't deliver what was shown.

    Bad in the old days with physical discs. They had to release a finished functional game.
    Today the trend is to release halfassed shit, and do a flurry of patching afterwards.

    Is the pre-purchase sales so big, their entire goal is just to release the MVP and move on to next project?
    The Epic Store is amazing, I've been able to save so much money by not buying their games.

    Consumers are the worst, not the companies.
    It's the consumers that vote with their wallets, and they always vote one way.

    And now Blizzard is offering refund to anyone asking, regardless of time spent in game.

    No one was surprised.

    When they obviously realize themselves what a shit job they did, why did they decide to release it in the first place? This doesn't make any sense.

    It's not that, it's a preventive measure to not give grounds to class action lawsuit no lawyers will be able to win for them.

    Yep. Gamers are idiots.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Up till now, they have flat out rejected refunds.
    And those that posted on blizzard forums how to get through the refund process got banned.

    Which was followed by serious threats of class action lawsuit, as this gives an unlossable base for one. And here we are.

    They took a look at the sheer volumes of money being printed by MS with Halo: MCC on the PC and went "yeah nah lads we'll just fuck it instead"

    It's funny somehow that the industry is just throwing shit against a wall to see what sticks and unfortunately a lot of it actually stuck. So no surprise to the actual current situation.

    Feels good I didn't preorder nor buy WC3 Reforged because of how they handled it but also feels bad because I loved this game to bits.

    Gamers have historically been quite happy to lap up any runny shit served to them as a sequel (or re-release or whatever) of a well loved old game. If there's a 9/10 chance that you'll get away with doing a half-assed job, then the expected returns on providing the other buttock are pretty poor.

    I have lately been wanting a new RTS game to play.
    Had it shown up on steam I woulda bought it without hesitation.

    Instead I read about this clusterfuck first.

    they didn't, the rest just became worse.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.
