I'm not going to use Battlenet just for one game. I just ordered Warcraft III Reign of Chaos and Frozen Throne on eBay so I can have a permanent Battlnet-less version. The original is good enough for me.

I'm also going to purchase Warcraft I and II on GoG.

I still have my original CDs and Books for WCIII. Never get rid of physical media. Now I just need to find the last update before this fiasco.

I'll probably upload the install folder to the cloud. It's what, 1 or 2 GB?

Wow, what a disaster of epic proportions. Glad I didn't preorder it. I was looking forward to playing updated TowerDefense and other custom games on bnet. No point now as I doubt many will bother to make them just to turn them over to Blizzard for all rights etc.. It doesn't even seem like much of an upgrade besides character models. Guess its just single player off the install disc for me if I ever get nostalgic.

Honestly it looks like a down grade in visuals to me.

All I care about is that it now has legit Battle.net matchmaking....

The whole "mods are owned by Blizzard" thing - ehhhhhh. Mods were never the huge deal to me that it was for so many others etc.

At least they had the foresight to allow you to choose the classic graphics (for people like me who are "old" and prefer the chunky/cartoon artstyle of the original game)

Fallout 76 deserved all the hate it got; W3.... not so much IMO.

You don't care that all the campaign and map changes, making the game easier, are also in the "classic" version? You don't care that you need to purchase the $40 Reforged version to get shadows back? Stop making excuses for Blizzard. They have not been the same company of passionate developers since they merged with Activision 12 years ago.

Whoa there lol

I'm not making excuses for Blizzard. They've been a garbage company since the D3 release IMO...

Fair enough. Take it as advisement that this is worse than you think ;). Blizzard apologists in general are worse than Bethesda apologists, though. Seems like a lot of people who were initially pissed are already bending back over after simply promises from Blizzard that they're fixing it.
