Blizzard continues to roll out improvements to Warcraft III: Reforged’s matchmaking

Meanwhile, they finally remembered that custom campaigns existed

Everyone disliked that.

Are you one of the many, many people who doesn’t really care much about proving your mettle in competitive matches of Warcraft III: Reforged and would just like custom campaigns to be working like they were in the non-reforged version? Well good news! The latest piece of news acknowledges that that’s a thing that isn’t working. That’s it. Now enjoy a great deal of discussion about exactly how your matchmaking rank is determined, because that’s what this is all about.

You may recall that this is very similar to the last update about the game in April, which also was all about matchmaking improvements and did not address the missing features which also include clans, ranked ladders, and profiles. Here, those features are… acknowledged. Not addressed, but at least they got an offhanded one-line mention. But matchmaking, that’s here and out in force.

Four months in, the game continues to be significantly less mastered than previously believed.

I’m still amazed at how poorly Activision Blizzard handled this.

But what amazes me more is EA doing their re-master of the first two Command & Conquer games… properly, alongside the player community.

EA is going as far as making the new games completely open source. Read up on that here:

Remaster Update and Open Source / Mod Support from commandandconquer

You know hell is freezing over when EA, of all companies, is doing right by the players.

The best roll out they could do for the game would be a roll back.


I don’t know which team runs the Warcraft III side of the house, but they clearly have no idea why people are pissed off.

I don’t understand why they couldn’t do the remaster in the same way that Starcraft was handled.
