Simply don't buy any blizzard games and don't give them any money. They are now an artistically worthless, trash company that can't die off soon enough. Last game I bought from them was starcraft remastered and that one was actually made by one guy who was part of the old guard.

But don't buy Refunded whatever you do. Pick a copy of WC2 off of GOG and play that instead of this remake.
From a cursory look at some videos it's clear those two aren't even remotely the same. There are brand new cutscenes, obviously the 3D maps look and play different and some of them even seemed modified. There may be even more changes.

It might have cutscenes and shit but that's not worth giving money to Blizzard for this abortion of a product.

Experience rich lore from the events of the Second War, based on classic games and novels.

Can it be played with the WC3 graphics or only the reforged graphics?

At some point I changed phones and forgot to migrate the fucking authenticator over. Subsequently I cannot log into my account. I put some token effort into getting back into it but found myself in a loop of not being able to log in because no authenticator, and not being able to access support because I couldn't log in.

I could call a helpdesk and get it sorted, but do I really want to go to that level of hassle for Blizzard games?

It will be nice if there is a new single player game in warcraft. An RPG will be the best one.

No real difference between Hearthstone and WarCraft Rumble. Both are mobile games aimed at a younger audience. It's still a fucking low blow seeing that grunt greening and looking at me.

If Heartstone and Rumble are aimed for kids and WoW is aimed at teens why can't they make something with the WarCraft ip that's aimed for adults or at least has some grit to it. Why does every Blizz related media reek of spineless cuckism.

Because they learned 20 years ago if you aim at kids you'll cover kids, teens AND a huge chunk of infantile 35 yo men who play with pokemons and my little ponies.

If you aim at adults, you only get adults.

When I see infantile/cartoony art direction I cringe...

Just look at Rennaisance era games... PST, Fallout, Arcanum, Morrowind... even other genres... Alpha Centauri, Starcraft, Heroes 3... All have a mature style, dunno what happened

Fake news

When we played the games I mentioned above, we were kids

I have a better theory. Kids now =/= kids then

True that.

I grew up watching Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Bruce Lee.

Today boys only have estrogen soaked female centric capeshit to "enjoy". And then we're shocked they play with nintendo and ponies when they grow up.

Because the people at the top are completely desinterested in the thing they are the CEO of and the only thing that interests them is their multi million salary at the end of the year / stock options.

The shareholders couldn't care less about the endproduct as long as their stocks go up.

The programmers, producers and engineers are blue hairs, tattoed, man-bun wearing noodle arms with the mind focused on inclooosivity and work in spaces with hug rooms, ball baths and meditation rooms... they are physically and mentally unably to produce ANYTHING closely adult themed.
