No hostbots, but you will have a lot of lotboxes for $$ :). Too bad this company is becoming 2nd EA

you guys are right, this blizzcon was the worst in last couple years....

25euros for this remaster is big fu to old fan/gamers of this beatiful game

also diablo on mobile is NO comment...

every year i wish for wc4 and diablo4 with long playtime like diablo2 not d3....
There are still some rumours about Diablo 4 being developed. Recruitment for some unannounced game from Diablo world, a Diablo 4 video that should have been shown at BlizzCon...

If you manage to sell over 30 million copies of a game, you will go for sequel.

But I still do not understand why did they remade StarCraft and Warcraft 3... And Diablo for mobile.

I read somewhere that apparently they want reforged to be straight up compatible with classic WCIII, so improving on a number of the weaker aspects of the game (hello online hosting, how are you) is out of the window.

I mean, don't get me wrong, redone UI is nice, higher definiton, to some extent, is  called for, and from what I've seen overall feel of the game is familiar, but outside of graphical aspect and easier setup (why should that even be considered a selling point is beyond me) there's nothing that even tries to warrant a purchase.

They just need it to make all the old 2003-2018 players buy it and also maybe attract some new ones to make money. Basically parasiting on nostalgia. I bet that they won't update anything major after the hype is gone unless ofc they will enable lootboxes which they will probably do (you can already get some "premium" stuff if you prepurchase)

As far as I know, the premium stuff is WoW skin, Heartstone cards and HotS heroes. Or is there anything else?

I also don't see how would lootboxes in WCC3 work...

Remastering from bottom up costs money. These are not upscales, they are re-design models.

I am looking forward for this upgrade. I have already pre order it with WOW mount package. I think this is a smart move for Blizzard (for w3 at least). They remastered their oldest and most popular game back in those days and then they continued with the story in Wow. So this means they have plans for Warcraft 4 or at least, they will test the grounds with this remaster. Why ? Because w3 and w4 would be many years apart so many players would not accept that good. We are all used to this funky looking graphics of w3. So they are taking no risk at all (and they have done with Starcraft already and turned out good) with this remaster. And most important thing... they actually changed w3 a lot to see if players are ready to accept this. It is like d2 test. Turns out that dota2 for dota1 players (overall) was positive change. So time will tell.

No hostbots, but you will have a lot of lotboxes for $$ :). Too bad this company is becoming 2nd EA

This business model created a stir in the market. After all, game companies have a goal to make money. So if something it is profitable, they will do it. Skins in dota2 turned out to be good move. On the other hand EA abused that system.
