Warcraft 3: Reforged first scores: cheats, mountains of zeros and frustrated fans

Warcraft 3: Reforged got to personal computers, but instead of laudatory reviews received "zeros" on Metacritic

and the anger of the players on Reddit.

Why disliked

The first claims for reforged Warcraft 3flew because of the demo that Blizzard showed at BlizzCon 2018. Players compared it to the release version, and it turned out that the developers did not add the promised.

In the "demo" were well-placed cut scenes withclose-ups, but they didn’t get to the release. Nevertheless, Blizzard said before the release that most of the videos would remain at the original level, with the exception of the opening video and the battle between Illidan and Arthas. The graphics were also simplified by reducing the number of parts and removing the updated interface.

And if gamers would still have reduced graphicsreconciled, then technical problems cannot be ignored. For example, during the loading of a story mission, a game may unexpectedly count a defeat at the very beginning. In multiplayer, you can’t connect to other players at all. However, Warcraft 3: Reforged often crashes, and if it loads a level, it can remove building models from it.

Gamers also noticed that important features disappeared in the updated version:

  • automatic tournaments
  • clans
  • profiles
  • 3D campaign backgrounds and portraits in Battle.net,
  • commands through a slash in the Battle.net chat,
  • news section
  • custom campaigns.

Players note that for compatibilityClassic Warcraft 3 and Reforged Blizzard developers moved the original to the reprint base. So these features, thrown out of Reforged, disappeared in the classic version in Battle.net.

Given these factors, the anger of the fans is quitejustified. On Metacritic users put Warcraft 3: Reforged a total of 2.4 points. Of the 78 reviews, 65 are negative and only 1 is “mixed.” Gamers rightly say that Blizzard deceived them by releasing the same game, but with a lot of problems.
