No elf.

Remember last BlizzCon when Blizzard announced it was working a revitalized version of the 2002 Warcraft III RTS? Warcraft III: Reforged is the name, and last night, the company announced the start of the multiplayer beta for this new “top to bottom upgrade” of the game.

“The multiplayer beta for Warcraft III: Reforged is about to start, with limited access to the orc and human races within 1v1 and 2v2 matchmaking. The undead and night elf races, and more game modes will be added in the weeks ahead. Invitations to the multiplayer beta will be sent out over the coming weeks. Initial invitations will go out in waves to players who have pre-purchased the Spoils of War edition of the game and subsequent waves of invitations will go to additional players, such as those who have pre-purchased the standard edition of Warcraft III: Reforged.”

Blizz is heavily promoting the purchase of the Spoils of War edition by loading it with extra perks for multiple games as well as special skins for the game you’ve actually bought. According to PC Gamer – and the fact that some folks are already playing it on Twitch – invitations have already begun rolling out. It was supposed to launch in full this year, so it looks like that release isn’t far off now.

It’s weird, i like the graphics but these aren’t the graphics i was expecting.

Not gonna play tho, i love me some War3 but i outgrew it, and it’s still Blizzard.

I loved Warcraft Orc vs. Humans. All of the iterations set the stage for the evolution of strategy games and a little title some confuse as the original MMORPG. (I think Warcraft II was the best, fyi.)

BUT… dare I say it? Ok. The China debacle. It has made me unsteady. I love video games, but this time, despite its allure, I’ll take my money elsewhere.

My weakness is video games. I can’t say I will never play Blizz games ever again. But I’m out.

Back to Outer Worlds, I go!

It’s too bad, as a die-hard Warcraft RTS fan I would’ve bought this. But due to their recent actions I’ve lost all faith in Activision Blizzard, they won’t get a sale from me.

Eh, I wouldn’t buy Reforged for the PvP multiplayer. Just the custom maps and campaign.

Something in me says, “go for it!”

I just might try Warcraft, yep I am probably the only human being on the planet that hasn’t experienced the original Warcraft.

Welp, that means it’ll all be a new experience then, won’t it?

I mean who knows, if WoW was the first MMORPG, maybe WC3 was the first Warcraft!

Multiplayer is what I’m the least concerned about but at least there’s some news.
