Warcraft III gets its first patch in four years, with more to follow

    
40

It looks like it’s not just cult classic Diablo II that’s getting a lick of fresh paint this week, as Blizzard has now released a compatibility patch for its classic strategy game Warcraft III. Patch 1.27a is the first update to the game in over four years and contains mostly fixes to make the game run properly on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, and a new installer for Mac OS 10.10 and 10.11. Older versions of the Mac OS are not supported and are causing crashes, but the patch has been otherwise well received.

Blizzard has been responding to questions and comments on the Warcraft III forum and has promised that more patches will follow. The team won’t be limiting itself to just bug-fixes and compatibility improvements either, with “a balance change and new map pool” still to come.

Rohirrim mourasaint Not really because these “remastered” versions usually end up with more bugs and you have to buy the bloody game again.

DigitalQ The funny thing is that it’s been so many years and the tech has come so far that this is actually possible.

Heh. No, I haven’t gone completely mad. :-)
I realized something important a while ago: it has been so long since Half-Life 2, that I no longer care if Half-Life 3 releases or not. 
This is not anger, or petulance, it’s simply that my connection to the game and its story has eroded with time, so badly, that I no longer feel connected to it.
The poet William Butler Yeats once famously wrote, “Too long a sacrifice can make a heart a stone”. Yeats was writing about finally getting over his years-long infatuation with the woman, Maud Gonne, 
She put him off for so long, that he finally fell out of love with her. All those years of sacrifice (waiting and hoping) finally turned his heart to stone, where she was concerned.
And that’s how I feel about Half-Life 3 by this point. It could release tomorrow, and I’d be all, “Meh. Too late” :-D
Your mileage may vary, of course, and that’s cool,

Cheers,
