Naive Diablo Fans: OH WOW D2 REMASTEREDMe: *laughs in Warcraft III Refunded
I don't think this will end up a repeat of WC3. I don't mean they've learned a lesson, I mean Diablo 2 is an isometric game with no cutscenes so they just have to redraw the sprites/maps and update the controls/keybinds. They would have to TRY to screw up.
Warcraft 3: Reforged was developed with a different goal in mind than last year’s StarCraft: Remastered, Stillwell said.“When we went to Korea and talked with pros and people still playing in game rooms, the overwhelming feedback was ‘Please don’t change the game,’” Stillwell said. “‘Make it pretty, give us a modern matchmaker and then quietly step away, Blizzard.’ Getting those marching orders made the endeavor not just easier but more focused. But with , we’ve talked with the communities in Europe and in China , ‘Hey, we don’t think this game is done.’”The goal is not just to give Warcraft 3 a new coat of paint, but “do more with it.”“Let’s push it,” Stillwell said. “Let’s get it to be as perfectly balanced as StarCraft. Let’s add more to the editor, because it’s already powerful. And like a good Blizzard game, it’s easy to learn, difficult to master, also make it even deeper.”source: https://www.polygon.com/blizzcon/2018/11/2/18057924/warcraft-3-reforged-classic-compatibility-blizzconAnd we want to reconstruct those moments in this game, and have that parity with where things have gone; and that to me is kind of that mission of, are there new quests? Are there, their new campaigns? Like the, we’re calling this Reforged because of that. Because the desire is to kind of heal up how things have evolved, and make it anew in a really compelling way. After we’ve shipped that, and you guys love it, and you demand more content; then we can talk about more content. (source: Blizzcon 2018 pannel)And now they say: "Blizzard is aware of the failure of Warcraft III Reforged and considers having made a mistake in the communication around the title by having made it pass too much for a remake while it was just a remaster. An error that the studio does not intend to reproduce in the future."They don't admit it even...I would love a Diablo 2 Remastered, but i'm really scared and very doubtful. Already they have a diff studio handling it. Just like they outsourced the War 3 art... Is it gonna unfold the same way? We'll see, but again i'm gonna tread very carefully.
Please..Leave Diablo 2 alone.The only thing I could wish for, is better graphics and higher resolution.-A new game is not needed for that.
I'll believe it when I see it
After Warcraft 3 Reforged I'm not paying anymore for any remaster/rewhatever Blizzard try to sell.
as someone who doesnt care about wc3, overwatch, diablo 4 and has lost faith in wow getting good again this is the first good news ive seen in years. maybe it will get more improvements like 16:9, more than 25 fps, bigger inventory/stash/shared stash and the wonky movement and hit detection than just a visual update like they did for starcraft remastered.
i thought they lost the source code from D2?
After what happened to Reforged? No thanks. Blizz fool me one time, shame on them. They fool me a second time, shame on me.
With what happened to Warcraft 3 this is a bad idea in everyway, Activision will ruin it just like they did reforged.
if they just slightly improve graphics and call it a remaster like war3 then I don't see the point of it.
Given that Blizzard claims to have lost the source code to D2 and they also stated they are shifting to mobile it makes me not believe this post. Until it comes from Blizzard themselves I am skeptical.
20 years later..."rush announcement"
Wait the minute! Something that I am just reading, and those who made the Destiny 2 expansion work?Hmm ... For from bad to worse I think there will also be some problems in the online gameplay, only time will tell.
