WarCraft 3: Reforged wasn’t an issue at BlizzConline, apart from the presentation of user-generated content for SC2 and WC3R (see the video). That the messed-up new edition would not play a role could already be guessed at the opening ceremony, because when J. Allen Brack (President of Blizzard) spoke full-bodied about Diablo 2 Resurrected and the preservation of the quality of the original, StarCraft Remastered was used as a comparison and not WarCraft 3: Reforged. It was simply hushed up. At least the developers of Diablo 2 Resurrected stated in interviews that mistakes made in WarCraft 3: Reforged should not be repeated. Rod Fergusson, the former Gears of War front man who now heads the Diablo franchise, said that an entirely different team was working on Diablo 2 Resurrected and that WarCraft 3: Reforged was realized before his time at Blizzard (source: PC Gamer). So there was no news as to when and whether the missing and promised features should be delivered at all.
The re is also little evidence of improvement on the official website. In August 2020, a manual for the editor was published, before that there were contributions to the upcoming player profiles and the rated multiplayer games. The last patch for WarCraft 3: Reforged was released in October 2020 – the development team (Team 1 at Blizzard) was also disbanded this month (we reported). The October 2020 update mainly made balance adjustments. The other five patches that came out last year mainly focused on balance changes, bug fixes, better multiplayer stability, campaign improvements and graphics updates, but didn’t bring any new features. In May and July 2020, the developers announced “improved player allocation, rated seasons, rankings, profiles, own campaigns and clans”.
A big problem with WarCraft 3: Reforged is that the new version does not stand on its own, but directly influences the functions of the original, since both games have been merged. So WarCraft 3 players are also affected by the Reforged problems and restrictions. With Diablo 2 Resurrected, this merger should not happen in any case.
