If you are a gamer, there's a good chance that you've heard that Warcraft III: Reforged is getting bashed like no tomorrow.

Blizzard acknowledged that discontent today in an update posted to the Warcraft 3 forums in which addressed some-but not all-player complaints, and shared as little bit about its plans for the game's future.

A few people aren't whined by the new menus, and others anticipated all the more new discourse-Blizzard rejected designs to revise the story after fans who needed all the first voices left in grumbled.

According to fans on the subreddit, Blizzard assistance will approve players a refund regardless of just how much time they have actually invested in thegame User krOnicLTD played the final version of Warcraft 3: Reforged for over 5 hours, and still got a refund without concern.

You can read Blizzard's full statement at the link. First, in response to the scaling back of redone cinematic sequences - this was done to preserve the look and feel of the original release.

"As we talked about past year at Blizzcon, we did not want the in-game cutscenes to steer too far from the original game", the developer wrote on the official forums. The team is also working to address issues players are having with Classic mode looking and behaving differently after the Reforged patch. It will also address many other known issues, such as fixing some portrait animations and audio bugs, implementing some UI fixes, and more. The team did note that it will keep the Warcraft III community updated on all the fixes coming.

It is safe to say that Warcraft III: Reforged launch did not go as smooth as Blizzard may have hoped. His real-time strategy game focused on the hero, compared to the vast sci-fi armies of Blizzard's own StarCraft, paved the way not only for World of Warcraft but the genre MOBA Without Warcraft 3 and its amazingly talented modder community, there would be no Dota 2 or League of Legends, no automatic chess, and maybe no Hearthstone.
