Words can't describe how happy I am to see Blizzard coming back to patch one of their oldest titles, and updating them for modern screen support, as well as balancing units.

People like to bitch about Blizzard nowadays but there's no other company that supports their games like Blizzard does.



Signature goes here!

All I really want in life is a remaster of Warcraft 2 and Warcraft 3.

Is it too much to ask for?



Im not impressed

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Mine too.

 

I know they have hired staff in regards to WC III/SC I, but I'm hoping they have a team working on remaking WC 1-3. That's all I really want.

 

Just had a few skirmish matches, and my god does the update make the difference. The battles feel almost like AoE length.
