If you were one of the lucky subscribers to the Blizzard’s survey email lists, you already know why we were so excited to see the survey Blizzard just sent out regarding Warcraft 3: Reforged.
The questions asked in the survey this time are not mere “what has your experience been so far?”, but instead involve your opinion on things like some of the features from Legacy Warcraft 3 still missing, graphics not being improved “enough”, and features like the Custom Campaigns, the UI revamp, Clans, and Tournaments.
Yes, dear fans — we know! This does actually sound like something this time around and, while it may be too early to expect anything in particular, Blizzard gathering feedback specifically on these aspects of the game says something about their potential plans for it.
It’s definitely not an unpopular wish from the community to see Warcraft 3 Reforged reflect some of the approach that made Diablo 2 Resurrected so successful: with the graphics and cinematics reflecting the original style, persistent attention paid to performance issues, and a careful preservation of so many of the beloved original features. Almost 3 years after its release, it has been unfortunate to see that the single-player custom maps, custom campaigns, clans, ranked ladder, and automated tournaments are still missing from what was supposed to be an improved version of the original game.
Perhaps year “3” is our lucky charm here: there is little doubt that the community is now eagerly awaiting to hear more about the fate of their beloved classic.
Here is the rest of the relevant survey questions, if you are curious:
About the Author
Dedicated contributor at Lexicon Gaming and a part-time collector of books she will never have time to actually read. Jumps on the newest releases just as quickly as on the uncovered dusty collections from the basement. For her, shiny graphics can never be an excuse to not have a polished player experience or an immersive story.
Warcraft 3: Third Time’s the Charm eh? Here’s hoping 😆
If they could do it half as well as they did the Diablo 2 remaster it would be amazing.
I am thinking that we may see some very good overall improvements, considering how they actually started implementing the community’s feedback. I was disappointed with the initial release, but I think I will give it another try. Especially since they worked on patching the game!
I got kinda burned the first time with my pre-order. Was huge into WC3 back in the day both custom games and ranked. Even made custom maps for it. I’d love for them to fix their mistake, but by god if they try to charge me a single penny after I already bought it I’ll flip out, haha.
I would absolutely love to go back to Warcraft 3 again, I spent my childhood in custom games. I hope they can get that feeling back if they do try again.
Where is the SURVEY???
Baryon, the survey was selectively sent out to the users on Blizzard’s email list, as far as we know. No idea how else to access it…
And what, then charge again for that crap?
I been beating everyone in wc since 2005 ….. mortalOne914 has been destroying lives and I stopped in 2014 and then it was gone when I tried to join again …now reforged needs to have single player rank and keep reforged similar to wc3 if anything new maps and maybe a few new characters but it must not stray away from how Great wc3 was for years….. I see happy thinks he’s so good these days but he would lose 2/3 times to me when I would play his bum ass…. mortalOne914 will return soon as it’s clear that reforged is perfect…..
To anyone unfamiliar with the scene, WC3 is in the best place it’s been in years, with community projects such as W3Champions. Reforged didn’t exactly hurt it. The issue is that the entire graphics overhaul did not pan out (but is it really needed?).
Blizzard have been patching the game since 2022 and have added the featured you said were missing.
