10 Jun Warcraft III Patch Notes 1.31.0 Hail Warchiefs, Lichs, Commanders, and Keepers, This is our last major patch prior to Reforged. In addition to sweeping enhancements to World Editor, it contains major updates to the rendering technology, and we’ve been making significant server patches in parallel. Progress isn’t without its compromises. The team did their damnedest to get Arranged Teams working within the legacy system. We’ve made strides to that end, but were unhappy with the experience. We decided it was more important to get this behemoth of a patch out the door then continue to delay. That means AT will return with Reforged, not before. We deeply appreciate those of you playing on ladder, in custom games, and creating new maps. One day we’ll look back at these moments in the crucible of change ruefully, but until then your passion fuels us. The march toward Reforged continues. SPECIFIC CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS Integrated Direct3D 11 and Metal graphic APIs Added 64 bit support for Windows and Mac Dropped 32 bit support for Mac Sounds are disabled when the client is not active Expanded supported window modes within Options See World Editor Updates for more details on many additions and improvements including beta support for Lua Join the fray over in Balance Updates for multiplayer and map pool changes Battle.net disabled for Reign of Chaos Dev Comment: We’ve been encountering non-trivial issues connecting players over Battle.net as we unify the game client - a prime example being disconnects caused by erroneous matches between Chaos and Throne. Custom maps created with RoC data are still playable, this affects melee only. A major benefit to this change is players who owned Reign of Chaos only now have The Frozen Throne. BUG FIXES Triggers won’t be lost during saves (Thank you, Bribe) 256 bones are available (Thank you, Retera) Custom movies play correctly (Thank you, Gustafsson) DBZ Tribute Elite 2.5.1g no longer causes desyncs Builders_and_Fighters_CFVers_1.08 no longer causes desyncs Char Def 4 3.0 Fix 5 English loads HM RPG v7.00 loads NCD6.9 ENG Dannebox loads Maps no longer download again with each patch Sound data no longer transferred between maps Commands issued while a unit is affected by Possession no longer trigger after control is restored Switching window focus with Open Broadcaster Software running no longer causes freezes Combat and death sounds are no longer played globally for observers Movement speed and attack speed data labels are no longer reversed for Envenomed Spear in the editor Disease Cloud will now stack properly when using custom buff data Runed Bracer’s tooltip now accurately describes that it reduces spell damage, not magic damage KNOWN ISSUES Mac clients are not able to take screenshots Lua errors report the wrong line number Mac requires legacy CD keys to launch Arranged teams are not available COMMAND LINE CHANGES The ‘/’ command line argument flag is no longer supported (use ‘-’ instead) Removed: -nativefullscr (Replacement: -windowmode fullscreen) Removed: -fullscreen (Replacement: -windowmode windowedfullscreen) Removed: -window (Replacement: -windowmode windowed) Removed: -swtnl (Replacement: nothing, Warcraft uses hardware texture and lighting) Removed: -d3d (Replacement: -graphicsapi Direct3D9 [May be removed in the future]) Remvoed: -opengl (Replacement: -graphicsapi OpenGL [May be removed in the future]) REGISTRY CHANGES Removed: “Gfx Fullscreen” (Replacement: the window mode is now stored in the preferences) Removed: “Gfx OpenGL” (Replacement: -graphicsapi OpenGL on the command line) Removed: “Gfx SwTNL” (Replacement: nothing, Warcraft uses hardware texture and lighting) WORLD EDITOR UPDATES (Beta) Added Lua as a supported scripting language. To create a Lua map: Create a blank map Open Scenario > Map Options Select Lua from the Script Language dropdown Maps save in the selected language Maps that are written only in standard libraries can switch to Lua Maps that use custom script will have to disable all custom triggers before conversion (Beta) Object modification system API allows new changes to many items, abilities, units and more at run-time. Maps can be saved and loaded as folders (as well as MPQs) The map structure can now be updated outside of the editor (such as adding files). In the editor go to File > Save As and then select to save the map as a directory or an MPQ. This feature coupled with auto-import allows maps to be manipulated and developed by multi-person teams more easily. Loose files in a map are now auto-imported in World Editor Historically, an imported file would be noted in the .imp file. Loading the map only load/save files that were stored in the import file. Auto-import loads and save files that are stored in the map folder automatically. This also makes manipulation of map files outside the editor possible. Added support for many popular community created functions Added Custom User Interface functions to allow map makers to add, remove, and adjust UI frames When saving a map as an MPQ, the editor no longer saves file times to make maps deterministic The editor now creates a backup map file on save The data layout in CASC has changed, each directory with the “.w3mod” suffix acts as an overlay for the engine Maps are .w3mods with a different extension (.w3m or .w3x) which allows us to support maps that contain all locales in one map Folders can now be nested in the Trigger Editor Globals are now part of the trigger tree, and can be put in relevant categories Doodad height is now an adjustable property (Requires “Reset Fixed Object Heights” disabled) When creating new objects in the object editor you are now given the option to customize it Scripts can now detect when any unit is damaged Scripts can now detect and modify the damage done before armor Scripts can now detect and modify the attack type, damage type, and weapon type (Note, modifying these only works in the pre-armor event) GroupAddUnit/GroupRemoveUnit now returns true/false if a unit was added/removed More group manipulation natives (BlzGroupAddGroupFast, BlzGroupRemoveGroupFast, BlzGroupGetSize, BlzGroupUnitAt) Bitwise functions (BlzBitOr, BlzBitAnd, BlzBitXor) When JassHelper is enabled, it now only shows the JassHelper error dialog Removed deadzone when using the editor on widescreen displays Tooltip Previewer displays how text will appear in game BlzSetAbilityResearchExtendedTooltip now displays the correct string BlzGetLocalUnitZ now returns the correct height Setting Use Custom Color to True for the waterfall doodad no longer causes a crash Units given custom spellcaster icons do not crash the game client when selected Certain custom models are no longer lost due to textures being relocated in the game Items have a new field, Stock Initial After Start Delay. This allows mapmakers to specify how much of an item starts in stock on a shop if it has an initial start delay. BALANCE UPDATES ORC Blademaster Windwalk Cooldown now occurs when Windwalk breaks Reduced the cooldown of Windwalk from 5 seconds to 2 seconds across all levels Critical Strike Now benefits from all damage once again, not just base damage Dev Comment: Reducing Critical Strike’s damage sources lowered overall burst, and had the downside of making his stats unclear. The Blademaster was also able to strike and fade away without recourse if Windwalk was activated 5 seconds prior to get attacking. These changes increase the Blademaster’s damage, but leaves him vulnerable to counterattack. Kodo Beast Devour can target Mountain Giants without Resistant Skin Tauren Pulverize Tauren now start with a reduced Pulverize that deals 20 damage The Pulverize upgrade has been changed to “Upgrade Pulverize,” which increases the damage of Pulverize to 60 Upgrade Pulverize lumber cost reduced from 250 to 225 lumber Dev Comment: Prior changes made the Tauren Totem easier to construct early, but it is still rare to see Tauren on the battlefield. This change is intended to make your first few Tauren more viable to takeover your front line. Reducing the upgrade’s lumber cost also helps with the transition. Overall, your upgrade cost is similar to a fully upgraded Knight or Abomination. Spiked Barricades Reduced the number of upgrade levels from 3 to 2 Tier 1 is 5 base damage + 20% of the attacker’s damage Tier 2 is 5 base damage + 50% of the attacker’s damage Dev Comment: Spiked Barricades has not had much of a role in high level 1v1 games. Giving the upgrade extra percentage based damage increases the effectiveness against late game units, and reducing upgrade level count should help with it coming online faster. This does make the upgrade more complex, so we look forward to hearing feedback about this direction. HUMAN Knight New Upgrade: Sundering Blades Researched at the Barracks Requires Castle, Lumber Mill, and Blacksmith 100 gold / 100 lumber / 40 second research time Increases Knight’s damage against Medium armor by 15% Dev comment: While the Knight is quite formidable in single combat with other units, we wanted to improve its role vs medium armor further than the default damage bonus of 150%. This allows Knights to be more threatening vs ranged units they chase down, such as Crypt Fiends, and increases their ability to fight against Mountain Giants. Paladin Equipping Orbs no longer slows attack speed when attacking air units Animal War Training Knight base Hit Points increased by 50 Gryphon Rider base Hit Points increased by 50 Dragonhawk Rider base Hit Points increased by 50 Animal War Training provides 100 Hit Points, down from 150 Animal War Training lumber cost reduced from 175 to 125 Dev comment: This change is intended to help Human players transition to their Tier 3 units. Increasing base hit points should help reduce the reliance on Animal War Training, and reducing the lumber cost should slightly help the overall transition to these units. Control Magic Additional mana cost up from 35% to 45% Dev comment: We had reduced the additional mana cost of this ability to promote its usage, but it ended up inhibiting more strategies than it promoted. Orb of Fire Bonus Damage reduced from 10 to 7 No longer gives area of effect damage New effect: Decreases the effectiveness of healing abilities and hit point regeneration by 35% for 3 seconds Dev comment: By shifting the Orb of Fire into an anti-healing role, Human players will be better equipped to focus fire enemy units in the late game against powerful healers like the Death Knight. This should benefit late game unit combinations such as Riflemen, casters, and Gryphons. Its effectiveness is not determined by a unit’s raw stats, so it should be viable for ranged and melee heroes. NIGHT ELF Ultravision is now applied to Mountain Giants, Spirits of Vengeance, and Avatars of Vengeance Dark Ranger Life Drain Life Drain now applies the Dark Minion effect of the current rank of Black Arrow (Requires at least 1 point in Black Arrow) Dev comment: Drain Life and Black Arrow didn’t synergize. Black Arrow’s short debuff meant Drain Life was unlikely to result in a Dark Minion. This change benefits Drain Life by letting it gain the intended effect - but not damage bonus - of Black Arrow. Demon Hunter Mana Burn Mana cost reduced from 60 to 50 across all levels Dev Comment: While part of the lower usage of DH is due to the popularity of Keeper, we also agreed with feedback that the increased cost of Mana Burn was a factor. Druid of the Claw Base Stats Minimum damage in bear form increased from 22 to 23 Dev comment: Prior nerfs were in response to feedback that Druids of the Claw were… overbearing… at Tier 3. They stopped mauling structures as badly, but their role became fuzzy with the preeminence of Mountain Giants. This is a small change - Night Elf has been doing well at a high level lately - but is intended to sweeten the honey pot when you decide to feed these beasts. Glaive Thrower Vorpal Glaives Upgrade Now increases projectile speed from 1400 to 2000 No longer guaranteed to hit its primary target No longer changes to do damage in a line, instead Glaive Throwers keep their pre-upgrade circular area of effect damage Dev comment: We were not happy with Vorpal Glaives homing ability always inflicting full damage to the target. The upgrade now increases the Glaive’s speed, but returns to having a chance to miss - similar to other siege weapons. This leans into the Glaive Thrower’s personality of being a high velocity siege weapon while fixing the bug. Hippogryph Rider Base Stats Base hit points increased from 780 to 785 Dev comment: The Hippogryph Rider is a merge of both the Hippogryph and Archer, this means they share hit points as well. This should have minimal balance impact beyond making it more consistent with their individual hit points. Keeper of the Grove Base Stats Night vision radius reduced from 900 to 800 Base Intelligence reduced from 19 to 18 Tranquility Invulnerability duration reduced from 3 seconds to 1 Force of Nature Treant base damage reduced from 15 to 14 Dev Comment: Keeper has become the pick following his buffs in earlier patches. We are dialing him back some to help promote other heroes - as diverse hero options is one of the best ways to mix up gameplay. The night vision reduction reverts an unintended change. UNDEAD Gargoyle Base Stats Movement Speed increased from 350 to 375 Gold Cost reduced from 185 to 175 Dev Comment: Raising the speed of Gargoyles above ground units allows them to better pick off retreating enemies or intercept reinforcements trickling into the main force. They are still slower than the anti-air units designed to counter them though. Reducing their cost makes them a bit more competitive choice with Crypt Fiends. Necromancer New Spell Order Cripple → Raise Dead → Unholy Frenzy Cripple Now 85 mana Reduces movement speed by 75%, reduces attack speed by 10%, and reduces attack damage by 35% Unholy Frenzy Renamed to Incite Unholy Frenzy Sacrifices a target friendly Undead unit All nearby non-mechanical units gain Unholy Frenzy - including neutral and enemy units Raised to 175 mana Added a 5 second cooldown Ability area of effect is 250 Attack speed bonus reduced from 75% to 50% Skeletal Mastery Now requires Necromancer Adept Training to unlock Dev Comment: Currently Necromancers must be produced in large numbers right away in order to summon many skeletons, as their single target spells are locked behind the Necromancer training upgrades. This commitment to Necromancers can be problematic as the opposing player has a large window to scout and prepare. We want to address this by rearranging and revamping the skills of the Necromancer so that producing a few early on can provide value right away while massing them later still lets players summon a large skeleton army. Ghoul Frenzy Increase attack speed bonus from 25% to 35% Dev Comment: Currently, this upgrade makes Ghouls not quite strong enough to make up for how poorly they trade vs the other race’s similarly upgraded units. Increasing the attack bonus by 10% changes a number of unit relations to better favor Ghouls in direct combat. Additionally, the change to Necromancers having Cripple right away should also assist Ghoul effectiveness at Tier 2. (New Item) Ritual Dagger Shop Details Bought from Tomb of Relics Available at Tier 1 125 Gold, 2 Charges Stock 1 90 second restock time Item Details Sacrifices a friendly Undead unit to heal 100 hit points to all friendly non-mechanical units Damage interrupts regeneration 5 second cooldown between charges 400 cast range 300 effect radius Dev Comment: With this item the Undead race will have access to an early game healing effect outside of the Death Knight. Using in conjunction with Rod of Necromancy or Crypt Lord Beetles gives more viability to creep and fight early game. We added the interrupt from damage to match the intent of a recovery mechanism between fights. NEUTRAL UNITS Alchemist Healing Spray Cooldown increased from 0 to 6 seconds Acid Bomb Level 1: Primary damage reduced from 6 to 5, and secondary damage reduced from 4 to 3 Level 2: Primary damage reduced from 11 to 10, and secondary damage reduced from 7 to 6 Transmute Bonus gold granted reduced from 125% to 100% Dev Comment: The Alchemist continued to be too well rounded. Healing Spray’s cooldown is now in line with similar abilities - such as Blizzard - and we are reducing some of his early to mid game damage compared to other damage dealer heroes. Reducing Transmute is aimed at late game where it over-performed in teams and FFA. Firelord Soul Burn Mana cost reduced from 85 to 65 Level 1: Damage reduced from 125 to 80 Level 2: Damage reduced from 270 to 200 Level 3: Damage reduced from 450 to 340 Dev Comment: We are trying out a new direction for Soul Burn. The Firelord had a lot of mana tension between his 3 active abilities. This aims to reduce some of the mana tension so Soul Burn’s attack damage reduction and single target silence are more impactful to play. Pandaren Brewmaster Breath of Fire Level 1: Increased damage from 5 to 7 Level 2: Increased damage from 10 to 14 Level 3: Increased damage from 15 to 21 Dev Comment: The Brewmaster’s role as an area of effect damage dealer was overshadowed by other heroes after his previous round of changes. As the main role of the Brewmaster, we wanted to bring the panda-monium back to his kit. GENERAL ITEMS Boots of Speed Removed from the default creep camp drop table Starts with 2 stock on Goblin Merchants after initial cooldown Dev comment: The primary goal here was to prevent network connectivity wars for the first purchase. Moving Boots of Speed out of the default creep drop table is experimental. It’s one of the last items that can be bought at the Goblin Merchant and dropped by creeps, and by increasing the starting stock the item should naturally be more available to both players. Cloak of Shadows Heroes carrying this item can now Shadowmeld during the day as well as at night Using this Hide ability also works with units that have Shadowmeld Dev comment: Currently Cloak of Shadows has low desirability among many players. It also is one of the few items that deactivates for portions of the game without player input. Making it usable during the day should give it more flexibility. Crystal Ball Item level decreased from 5 to 3 Gold price reduced from 500 to 300 Dev comment: At level 5 the Crystal Ball is noticeably less powerful than the other item drop options. It does provide ‘free’ scouting which may be helpful, but perhaps more helpful in the early game than later on. Lion Horn of Stormwind Devotion Aura effect increased from 1 bonus armor to 2 Periapt of Vitality Gold price reduced from 350 to 325 Dev comment: The Periapt was the only item in the tier that wasn’t 325 gold. Rings of Protection All levels: Gold price adjusted to be the same as other permanent items of the same level Level 2: Damage reduction increased from +2 to +3 Level 3: Damage reduction increased from +3 to +4 Level 6: Damage reduction increased from +4 to +5 Level 7: Removed from creep drop tables Dev comment: We get quite a bit of feedback about the Rings of Protection being under-powered compared to other items in their tier. So we increased the bonus armor they provide by 1. We are removing the highest tier ring as it is often less impactful for heroes who obtain it compared with other options in that tier. Scourge Bone Chimes Vampiric Aura effect increased from 15% to 20% Dev comment: As a baseline, aura items should at least be the same as a level 1 hero ability. Since Devotion Aura and Vampiric Aura were buffed, we are increasing the effect of their respective aura items as well. Sentry Wards Duration decreased from 5 minutes to 3 minutes Dev comment: High level feedback is that while this item’s duration is already lower than the Witch Doctor’s Sentry Ward already, it still provides too much scouting information overall. Tome of Experience No longer a random drop from creep camps Dev comment: Experience comes from the blood of your enemies! We believe one of the core fun parts of Warcraft III melee is the tension between players leveling up their heroes. Tome of Experience changes this by giving the player who finds it a big bump in power but in a way that an opponent cannot prepare for or predict. Since this tome already has reduced effectiveness in late game there was concern that simply reducing its experience amount would make it feel uninteresting late game, while still maintaining its issues early game. So we are going to remove it. _Warsong Battle Drums _ Now provides the same ‘War Drums’ Command Aura buff as Kodo Beasts Dev comment: This is currently the only aura item that stacks with a similar aura from one of the playable races. This is a slight nerf to Orc, but it does make the aura items overall more unified and operate without exceptions. MAP POOL CHANGES Plunder Isle LV has been removed from 1v1 ladder Tirisfal Glades LV has been removed from 1v1 ladder Nomad Isles has been added to 1v1 ladder Ancient Isles has been added to 1v1 ladder Battleground has been removed from 3v3 ladder Battleground LV has been added to 3v3 ladder Timbermaw Hold (RoC version) has been removed from 3v3 ladder Timbermaw Hold (TFT version) has been added to 3v3 ladder Blasted Lands has been removed from 4v4 ladder Nerubian Passage has been added to 4v4 ladder (2)EchoIsles Changed terrain around the western green gnoll camp to make it less likely for player units to accidentally walk into it Added trees and rearranged doodads behind Mercenary Camps to make them more equal (2)AncientIsles Several changes made from original author’s version to make it ladder ready (3)NomadIsles New map from W3Arena Several changes made from original author’s version to make it ladder ready (8)NerubianPassage New map from Hive Workshop Small changes made from original author’s version to make it ladder ready (2)NorthernIsles Natural expansion creep camp changed from 2 Mud Golems, 2 Ogre Warriors and Rock Golem to Ice Troll, Ice Troll Priest, Tuskarr Trapper, and Ogre Magi.

Added additional fence near Goblin Laboratory and moved expansion back a little into the tree line to improve pathing. Fixed gaps in tree line around the map. Removed 2 stray trees near the top expansion in the river. Removed random frogs around the map and added a frog critter at the orange ogre/tuskar creep camp for each player. Small visual terrain changes and improvements around the map. Shifted the northeast starting location so that it is an optimal distance away from the Gold Mine Changed some terrain on islands in the northwest and southeast to be unbuildable Removed Rock Archway doodads near starting locations to improve visibility (2)PlunderIsle_LV Adjusted the position of each starting location and added trees near each starting location to make them more equal (2)SwampedTemple Compressed the map at the outer edges and reduced playable area size slightly Moved Mercenary Camps further in and removed the tree lines in front of them The Marketplace has been replaced with a Goblin Merchant and moved into the center of the map. Creeps also changed from Furbolg Shaman, Furbolg Tracker, and Furbolg to 2 Ogre Maulers and a Renegade Wizard. Replaced Skeletal Orc with Gnoll Brute for green creep camp adjacent to starting locations Mercenary Camp creeps changed from 2 Spitting Spiders and Giant Spider to Skeleton Warrior, Ogre Magi, and Kobold Geomancer. Item drop changed from level 2 charged to level 2 permanent and level 1 power up. Forest Troll High Priest replaced with Forest Troll Shadow Priest at the natural expansion creep camp Makura Tidecaller replaced with Makura Pooldweller at green creep camp near expansion location. Item drop changed from level 2 power up to Rune of the Watcher. Green Murloc creep camp changed from 2 Mur’gul Cliffruners, Mur’gul Blood-Gill, and Mur’gul Snarecaster to 3 Mur’gul Cliffruners, Murloc Huntsman, and Murloc Flesheater. Green Skeleton creep camp changed from Giant Skeleton Warrior, Skeletal Marksman, and Skeleton Archer to 2 Skeletal Marksman, Skeletal Archer, and Murloc Flesheater, . Item drop changed from level 1 permanent to level 2 charged. Enforcers replaced with Rogues and Brigands replaced with Assassins at the Goblin Laboratory creep camps. Removed Gnoll Brute from creep camp at center Gold Mine Changed the item drop for the Enforcer/Kobold creep camp from level 2 charged to level 1 power up and Rune of Lesser Healing. Creeps at northern Goblin Merchant changed from Renegade Wizard and Kobold Tunneler to Forest Troll Warlord and Forest Troll Shadow Priest.

22 Jan [Diablo 2] Support Ending for Windows XP and Vista With an upcoming platform patch intended to streamline the process of launching and connecting to Diablo II, we will be ending support for Windows XP and Vista. Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively. As we continue to support our legacy titles, we have found the vast majority of our audience has upgraded to newer versions as well. Once our next patch update hits, Diablo II will no longer run on Windows XP or Vista. We encourage any players who are still using one of these older OSes to upgrade to a newer version.Zaerhinon0 22 Jan

5d WC3 Lag/Lag Spikes lately Hi guys, i played wc3 for the past 2 weeks and in the last two days i've experienced a lot of network problems. Sudden lag spikes (probably packet loss/routing problem towards the server), game with costant 200ms++ instead of 50, sometimes disconnects. It's not my connection, it's working perfectly on every other game/service, even blizzard ones. Maybe as i said before it's a routing problem. Anyone else with a similar problem?

10 Jun Comp too old WC 3 patch 1.31, how to go back? Hi! I just updated Warcraft 3 to 1.31 on my old Macbook (2010). Bad idea. The graphics hardware (or maybe just this version of OSX, which can't be upgraded on this mac) can't handle the new patch so the game won't start! Is there ANY way to install an older version, like 1.30, on Mac?? I have searched but only found the downloader and it automatically installs the newest version... Blizzard: can you make an older version available pls... (Thanks for a great game!) /ThanThan3 10 Jun
10 Jun Diablo II Ban longer than 24h, why? Hi guys and gals, I have a list with over 200 cd-keys and I'm sure that, most of them are redeemed or banned or god know what but I don't know which are banned or so. Anyway I have tried to redeem some of them not much of a luck, at the end I found one which got it converted for a 26keys one, afterwards I have purchased a LOD one and use them both to install the game. all good so far, got updated to 1.14d and now when I try to connect I get the error "YOU HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED PLEASE TRY AGAIN IN FEW MOMENTS." and more than 24h have gone and still can't connect. any suggestions? P.S. Sorry if i sound bad. English is not my first language. Off-topic :) should we create a team for Friday reset?Slik0 10 Jun

06 Jun im sensitive i admit im a freak WoW BoA issue mean player did this to me, im all tears and ears are nearly ''ripped'' off when i play rated pvp arena 2v2, the monk player named mehrzad takes it deeply into hes own hands and i am still new to rated pvp, he is rasistic and complains when i dont do my job proberly, now... i was ment to pay 130k gold to the player monk Mehrzad also called Mehrzadtv on btag, and well, sorta everything in higher perspective is out of reach for me unless i pay loads of gold to some gold farmer that needs his daily rush of win win qqbb, both pve and pvp is seriously not to be taking at a high stake, i do my thing he sits and talks fully rasicistic to me, if i stood a chance everynow and then maybe i would have gotten further, but this game WOW !!! BoA is creeping me up totally, so many gold wanters, remove the token and let us pay the price of a ban from wow whenever we need to see if we get caught in paying real money from a website and a gold grinder instead. im sorry the text is a little utter un readable, but may i ask if someone is to take this ticket and solve the issue give the man a ADHD medication prescription and solve it that way, and i will perhaps use the ticket office alot more, since every one is mad and big mouthed + rageing over nothing, btw this wouldent have happened if i remembered to pummel the paladins heal in rated 2v2 arena got to 1150 cr and wont bother playing again. its some seriously pay to win youve got going, and i am not well with it!? plus playing your games, some game that aint pay to win, all there is, is pay to win. Im Mad Bro, man im mad, and tears rolling down... get this ticket deep into the society of blizzard let the leading command head president what ever his name is read it and set a much higher ban possibility to rascisem in the games. diablo 3 ros is becomming a group terapy and wow pay to win and all the other games, seriously.. im not going to be happy with the cash i payed through the years of gaming + my old account Which apparently got banned before you popped gold token for Auction house , only reason was dont buy gold from websites, ive been following that rule ever since, and you better have some ideas for me, or someone taking care of mental ill kids and grown ups, because some way or another all is going to end .. im not saying when it will end, but when the lead founder/president of blizzard aint anymore itl proberly start to fall apart. like anyother game .. they dont last forever, but let me guess your high price games is for the same reason unknown time stampled, and you just want the people playing to feel like theyr doing something with their life, im out no, you know what lets make a joke out of it, your out, out of sense, possibly because you dont want to bother with a 27 age ´´kid´´ like me, and because this is properly not sent to the right forum, shouldve never played the game, and shouldve died of exctasy instead, because this game got me hooked like 24/7 and i still aint no pro but people hating still. some learn quick some over time, and ive payed for like many many many and really many pennies and dimes for charecter pay options and gametime, and realm relocating, all that will be uttermost needed back.. but wont be happening since the game does not tollerate that kind, if its a game i payed for i also must follow the rules , hope this does not get too much on your nerves or the whole idea will be a wreckage someday. please just dont reply i think i can manage it on my own, just need to grow up i think and that wont happen easily, all there is left to be written is have a nice history lesson and vote for a afterlife with new life blooming all that stress this game has given me, im ill to the membrain and sick to the bone, and painfully no.. hopefully it will clear up. but thats not up to me. just so you know i will stay with world of warcraft . nor shall harrasement be the death of me, but the stress will have to come to a end someday, BYE have fun and most of all break a leg, wish you well and safe journies. and happy pvping and pveing, :'[ im a very sensitive guy.. that why should to come to think of it. and i cant find the write a topic on wow's forum site, somethings broke again, oh no you broke it. ^_^ and perhaps i am mistaken. the game is fun not that bad and good looking, but world of warcraft needs some attention, not the people playing it, rules need to be set higher in my perspective, and also hope this gets moved to the right location since the ticket was too long to write privat to blizzard support in world of warcraft.Glizzartbarb0 06 Jun

05 Jun New Patch ruined the game Why the hell did they need to update Warcraft 3 anyway? Everything was working just fine. Now since the new patch, that I've only just downloaded less than an hour ago, some custom maps don't work anymore... and of course the one that i played most is one of them. But it isn't just that, the game seems to run a lot worse too. It now takes a little while when I 'alt+tab' out of the game and back and the screen goes black shortly. It's almost as if Blizzard wants to ruin old Warcraft 3 in hopes of increasing Reforged sales...Dude3 05 Jun

03 Jun Blizzard is dying and here is why https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vf17bxUmNXA. Let me just say this here since blizzard blocks every path to player expression in all the game support tools and social media. I am saddened by how activision blizzard is acting, hell let me just say you people are !@#$. Not only are you ruining your own products by being greedy bastards, but on top of that you are lying to people, scam baiting people into resubs, laying off people randomly and being general %^-*!@#s. Over the years all you have done is focus on ways to make quick cash without ever listening to your community, without taking into consideration other options and as an example you idiots cames up with diablo on mobile phone "seriously not lol". Tons of people just like me got fed up with your B.S and left all your games over the years HoTs had great concept and you managed to $%^- it up, Diablo 3 was a total fail where you could have taken 1 more year and rethink it to something better, Hearthstone heh you *!@#s get little kids and women's cash and now they are leaving that $%^- too, WoW of yeah "not wow at all" we are leaving, i left months ago because you *!@#heads won't listen and the result is people are pissed and leave. To whoever is managing this page, you are an employee that may lose his job anytime cuz of $%^-*!@s that are too greedy and forgot the base values that led blizzard to glory, do not dismiss this message and rather send it to your superiors so maybe this at least tingles them into the right direction.LASCAR770 03 Jun

And broodwar is dead, wait time 180 second i die of boredom before i get game.

You will be completely anonymous and surveyxact is used so your ip can't be tracked back to you. I accept all ages to participate, but some questions are inteded for high school students.

13 May Warcraft 3: TFT Disconnecting constantly I've been dealing with what I think is the same issue since the last two new patches. I've been experiencing sudden disconnects from just sitting in game channels and ALWAYS after I've been in a ladder game. There is nothing wrong with my internet, router, computer or TFT, Windows, etc. Everything is a-ok and updated and so on. I also tried the Blizzard steps guide and I'm always running admin mode in TFT and I also tried reinstalling two times. The weird thing is that I can always rejoin again. Sometimes it seems to get stuck when joining Northrend but I can simply cancel and try again and then it works. So it's like I'm being thrown off but only for a very small period of time. ALWAYS after games and sometimes when I'm just in channels. Any Blizzard admins on this? I tried making a support ticket but they redirected me to forums...StoneDMO7 13 May
13 May We want pricing policy by country. Hello, Due to the economic situation of the country where I live, our purchasing power has decreased. We could buy a game with 59 € 2 years ago for 256TL. But now it is possible to get a game of 59 € like 406TL, but there is a difference of 151TL. Many of my friends who play WOW in the area I live in have started playing WOW on alternative servers. Monthly subscription fee is compensated condition the players we implement pricing policies that we expect from you in the Russian market pricing, according to Turkey's economy. Thanks, Merhabalar, Yaşadığım ülkenin ekonomik durumu sebebi ile alım gücümüz azaldı. 59€ olan bir oyunu bundan 2 yıl önce 256TL ye satın alabiliyorduk. Fakat şuanda 59€ olan bi oyunu 406TL gibi almak mümkün olmayıp 151TL fark var. Yaşadığım bölgede WOW oynayan birçok arkadaşım Free alternatif sunucularda WOW oynamaya başladılar. Aylık abone ücreti karşılanamaz vaziyette olup biz oyuncular sizlerden Rusya pazarında uyguladığınız ücretlendirme politikasını Türkiye ekonomisine göre fiyatlandırma bekliyoruz.

13 May Can't find old Wc3 after Reforged purchase So I bought Reforged, not having bought Wc3 through the launcher before. I was considering it, but I have the old CDs somewhere, figured it wasn't necessary. Does the current version of Wc3 not come with the Reforged purchase? I've seen several hints of this, like Grubby's twitter, but can't find any sort of link to the original, neither through the launcher nor the website.Sairuss26 13 May

10 May Blizzard is no longer worthy of our respect Having recently read about the bloodbath of layoffs at Activision Blizzard, where around 800 employees lost their livelihoods at the exact same time that Bobby Kotick announced a record-breaking year of earnings for the company, I wanted to share my absolute disgust and disappointment with literally anyone at Blizzard who still cares about making games with integrity, as well as my fellow gamers. To give a little background, I have been a massive fan of Blizzard's games since the inception of the Diablo, WarCraft and StarCraft franchises. I've diligently waited for and been thrilled by successive new releases throughout the past 20 years. The five years of my regular World of Warcraft-playing days contain many of my fondest gaming memories. Sadly, Blizzard is clearly no longer the same company that solidly maintained my respect, attention and support for over two decades. A steady and tangible decline in Blizzard’s ethical standards has brought us to where we are today, to the point where it seems the company is no longer capable of making and selling great games for a realistic, reasonable and sustainable profit. While correlation doesn’t always mean causation, it’s not difficult to connect the dots between Blizzard’s partnership with Activision and its relatively rapid descent into some of the worst corporate profit-spinning practices that currently plague the video games industry. From increasingly shady loot boxes, to the utterly cynical look and feel of Diablo Immortal (a ghoulish rehashing of uninspired existing game) and now the axing of hundreds of dedicated employees who helped deliver the company’s most profitable year to date – spotting Activision’s growing influence on Blizzard does not require any great detective abilities. The trite yet ever-popular argument trotted out by corporate apologists of: “It’s a company’s job to make money” fundamentally misses the point of what is happening to Blizzard, and indeed the wider video games industry. Yes, companies need to make money, but when you sacrifice both the quality and integrity of your product on the altar of unrestrained greed, then don’t be surprised when the consumer audience starts to look elsewhere. Blizzard is already squandering its integrity along with its talent, so how long will it take before the quality of its games starts to wane as well? Blizzard used to be a company that could boast a near-guarantee of excellence for every title they produced. They achieved this by essentially doing two things: taking their time and letting talented people do what they loved. The result: five franchises packed with critically-acclaimed masterpieces that were also smash hits commercially, a devoted global fanbase tens of millions strong, the creation of a national sport in South Korea, the development of BlizzCon as a premier annual games event, innumerable awards and accolades and, crucially, decades of viable, sustainable growth for the company itself. Compare this with Activision – a company that specialises only in chasing one gold rush trend after another. From squeezing Guitar Hero/Rock Band to death, to corrupting Destiny and releasing endlessly forgettable Transformers titles, Activision is only capable of manufacturing hype, rather than games with heart. Even the mighty Call of Duty franchise, the shining jewel in Bobby Kotick’s diadem, was considered a “disappointment” when its latest release generated $500 million. If this isn’t the perfect signal that the snake is starting to eat itself in desperation, then I don’t know what is. Activision’s burning need to satiate its shareholders’ desire for inflated profits through unsustainable growth is now clearly infecting Blizzard, and I doubt that there’s anyone left who has the strength to resist its creeping influence. So, rather than merely enable the degradation of a once-great company whose games have delighted me for most of my life, I’ve decided to invest my time and money elsewhere. As a consumer in the Digital Age, there’s really only two things you do to help improve the business practices of an industry you care about: make a fuss online and vote with your wallet. The EA Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box debacle proves that big publishers won’t improve their atrocious behaviour unless their customers explicitly tell them that they will not stand for it. Personally, the shameless axing of 800 employees off the back of record-breaking sales figures is something I will not stand for. I don’t want a Diablo 4 release that badly. If this is the new way that Blizzard is going to do things, if they are going to mimic Activision and the big publishers who unceremoniously drop dedicated and talented people just to keep the shareholder money pipeline turned on a little longer, then I’d rather not help finance that outcome, even in such a minor manner. Until there is some strong evidence that Blizzard’s remaining management team plans to clean up their act, I’m not going to buy any of Blizzard’s new releases, I will no longer attend BlizzCon, I will not contribute any form of encouragement or endorsement via social media, nor will I play any of the Blizzard titles I currently own. Like money, the goodwill and patience of a customer base is not infinite, something that Activision Blizzard is starting to discover. I urge Blizzard’s decision makers to consider the true cost of what they are doing – both in terms of hurting the company’s long-term health and the more immediate concern of jettisoning basic decency and respectability. Yours respectfully, A dedicated Blizzard fanValtyr8 10 May
05 May Regional Pricing System - RPS Dear cool guys from Blizzard, First of all, Blizzard is my favorite game company. I am writing this because I believe It will help the company. If you guys have regions system like steam, It will clearly improve the sales. In my steam account, I have 456 games paid games! But in my Blizzard account, I have only Diablo 3 as a paid game. Plus, I have 697 DLC in my steam account but I paid nothing for in-game purchases for the blizzard games. Reason for this station is the dynamic economic system of the world and static price system of the Blizzard is incompatible. Everything in Blizzard is fixed to USD or EUR prices but my money is always losing consumption power against them. It's makes everything is overpriced and constantly these prices are getting higher for me. Because my money always losing power against major currencies. Please let this feedback is readed by an authorized person of pricing as well. For example, a fat guy who plays games all day in the basement from Germany is making €9.19 per hour as a minimum wage. But another fat guy from Turkey is making 10 Lira (6,69Lira=€1, 10Lira=€1,5) per hour. Plus probably the fat guy from Turkey don't even have a basement. German guy needs to work for the Warcraft 3 Reforged 30/9,19=3 hours 15 min. It's pretty good for the game. But the Turkish guy needs to work 30/1,5=20 hours (half of the weekly salary). It's too much for a game. I am not even mentioning some of the things like petrol is the same price for all over the world that means if a country money value is 6 times less than other country value it doesn't mean everything is 6 times cheaper. Averagely these people need to cover more of their working hours for their survivals. That's why Blizzards needs to consider regional pricing like steam. I want Warcraft 3 Reforged but I feel like everything in the Blizard shop is very overpriced for me. (Example Link: https://steamdb.info/app/578080/ https://steamdb.info/app/6060/) Cheers mate. PS: I am not fat.SharpNote1 05 May
