WC3:R isn't worth playing. I mean, it's the same engine from 17! Years ago with nothing but graphical updates.
Blizz has lost everything they stood for in the past. They don't even try to be innovative anymore.
Hence they don't deserve my money.

Blizzard has lost its mojo. Will they redeem themselves with diablo 4?
Now that hat the cat is out of the bag, I sure am glad for my pessimistic initial take because things are so much worse than I'd imagined.
Apparently the PR department completely overhyped what reforged was going to be, setting unrealistic goals for the devs and making promises to fans that couldn't be met with how many resources Blizzard actually invested into this remake. But even if we set that aside, like I said in my first post, I think the rot goes all the way back to the core concept here: remaking a beloved game 18 years down the line. There's no way that game could ever have lived up to the fond memories and nostalgia of the original WC3. Hell, I would argue that even the idea of "improving" the graphics was a giant misstep: WC3 characters were designed for low-poly models and the two go together perfectly. Keeping the character designs but improving the visual fidelity turns these characters into misshapen nightmare fuel, much like turning Sonic from a cartoon into a 3D CGI creature made him a monstrosity. Adapting any design to a new medium is tricky, and this is one of the worst examples in recent years. For a game that does very little besides "update" the graphics, it's a crying shame that even those came out looking WORSE than the game that's old enough to drive and enlist at this point.
My condolences to all those who played old WC and now can't even do that anymore
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
I played both games, and Age of Empires 2 DE might be a good choice for people who were let down by WC3:Reforged.

But it has no fantasy setting. I would like a remake (or even a steam/something version) of battle for middle earth. Or Battle Realms. Or Armies of Exego...
I bought the spell force iii bundle now. Then my money goes to someone else, sorry blizzard.
