    The units in Warcraft 3 are distinctive from one another, exactly because of the models and the color palette, and the way the models interact with the background.

    You suffer from chronic shit taste, and there is no cure. You have to be quite braindead to like the looks of Warcraft 2, where everything looks like copy pasted jpegs with shitty perspective on top of a badly tessellated background

    But their being distinguishable from one another is clearly not from having a shitty goofy caricature art style, because strategy games with good art styles, like Age of Empires 2, still have easily distinguishable units.

    Funny how you "it's just nostalgia lolol" cretins fail to see how you simply fall into the other extreme.

    But no, of course, as opposed to the nostalgia fags you have a clear and objective mind and you alone can see how everything new is better than anything old.

    Web apps are a plague. Soon even toilets will use chromium or node.js to run "apps" depending on five billion java script libraries just to flush water.

    When you first sit on the toilet it injects a nerve agent that paralyzes your leg and rectal muscles until you accept Google Chrome as your standard potty browser.

    Hmm, in the context of reforged the unnecessary reinvention of the toilet is strangely relevant.

    I wish it was merely Gates. It's those pervs at Google. Given their CEO is from India, this sudden interest in poop suddenly starts to make sense.

    I heard that the best measure of civilization is the distance between where you live and the final resting place of your bowel movements. So of course Google is on the right track, but they need to partner with SpaceX next so we can all send our poop to space. Hell, Reforged can take a ride too.

    It's a nice idea and all, but how do we fit that many Blizzard fans into the same rocket?

    This topic makes me want to take a massive dump for some reason. I guess blizzard's work on reforged is inspiring at least in that way.

    I always was a fan of dumping all trash in one big pit and nuking it. Much cheaper than orbit insertion @ $4k/kg. And eco-friendly!

    Fools,
    all that quality shit is recycled. I leave it to you to figure out where it ends up again.

    So I decided to play warcraft on pre-reforged patches for built-in widescreen support and stuff, encountered shitton of bugs in sp campaign: npcs doing crazy shit, dropping items in cutscenes, heroes can't equip items. I googled for solution and found this: https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/warcraft3/t/bugs-in-warcraft-3-since-1-31-update/6906 :lol::lol::lol:

    It turned out that wc3 singleplayer was already dead before reforged even arrived, what a joke. So now if I wanted to replay SP campaigns I either had to go back to good ol' 1.26/1.27 versions with screen tearing and 4:3 aspect ratio, or find an elusive patch 1.29.2 which is considered less bugged (at least for campaigns) and works nice on big screens. I had to find an archived copy of torrent file on a russian torrent tracker to find it and for now it works okay, no major bugs encountered.

    Modern blizzard is such a fucking embarrassment, and I remember Blizzard being basically a quality mark of videogame world :mixedemotions:

    I disagree, I think thats the main reason the game's visuals haven't aged like your mom. Cartoony graphics have longevity, while also not requiring a big artist budged for the developer, nor a big hardware budget from the player. WoW is played in Russia and China too, the few hundred dollars for a graphics card there used to be more than a month's wages at the game's height.
