Blizzard’s Warcraft 3: Reforged release a month ago on January 28, 2020, 18 years after the original 2002 Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos proved to be an enormous disappointment to the fans of the game.
People want their money back in droves, and Blizzard has apparently obliged.
Some of the complaints included technical issues, and that the game delivered was not the game promised. People felt cheated.
Not only were the people who purchased the new release shafted, but also the players who were just enjoying playing the original game over all these years. They took the original game away from fans. I can imagine the rage if Warcraft 2 players lost Warcraft 2 by force.
The trailer that advertised the new release is below:
The actual cutscene from the release, clearly not living up to the trailer:
I’m not even a diehard Warcraft 3 fan, and the thought that they just grabbed the game players bought years ago and played since away from them by force is basically theft. Those players paid for and bought that game. They should be able to play their original game they paid for if they want to, without being forced to buy a defective new release. It’s pretty sickening what they thought they could get away with here.
I do love Blizzard for being the originators of Warcraft 2, my favorite game in the world, but it’s clear to see that the way Blizzard was run in the 90s is nothing like how it’s rolling in 2020.
There has been plenty of discussion in other places on everything wrong with Warcraft 3.
What I want to let all these disappointed Warcraft 3 fans is that Warcraft 2, its awesome predecessor, is here for you to enjoy! You can download it for free here.
There is still a devoted following for Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness multiplayer, and here at War2USA, we welcome players of all skill levels and maintain a non-toxic friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
