Warcraft III Reforged

I know I'm late to the party but this is a travesty beyond words. How do you even frick up your own game this bad? The Blizzard I grew up with really is dead.

    Aren't all remakes outsourced to the cheapest morons available at the time?
    Why would you expect the lowest bidder to have both the capability and motivation to faithfully recreate the original?
    From what I understand the only company that doesn't outsource remakes is Nintendo, which they instead use as learning opportunities for their junior staff.

      seeing the warcraft remaster being fricked up makes me somewhat surprised that CnC remaster was great

      my dad actually asked me to look out for reforged since he used to play it back in the day(honestly i forgot about it ngl)

      a lot of the time they are or just given to b tier teams. Like for example bluepoint games(demon souls remaster fame) p much only deals with remasters and remakes.
      I guess sometimes they could be outsourced to original devs which imo is best case scenario(look ad cnc remaster as it was made by what basically are the original devs)

    It was an impressive echelon of frickup to not only make a shit remake, but completely kill a 20 year old game people still loved and played at the same time.

      >duller, subdued colors and lack of highlights make buildings and terrain blend in with backgrounds too much
      >way lower contrast
      >color markings on units are less pronounced, making it harder to tell readily what team they're on
      >characters feel stiff. more realistic proportions leave models in an uncanny valley where it's neither realistic enough nor cartoony enough
      >way flatter, featureless soil
      no idea what the frick they were aiming for

      sorry goy, we couldn't risk another dota situation

        Adding to this, if you look at it in black and white like here it really highlights how the new graphics lack the readability of the older ones due to the lack of hard shadows and softer, blended colours. In the old days, graphics were defined by hard shadows to create contrast and lend a definition to them beyond what the basic textures could convey, and the crisp strong colours without that faded look to them were so much more appealing.

          good point. spyro and crash demakes suffered from the same form of butchered art direction. it's baffling how they seemingly dont learn fundamentals (values and light specifically) anymore

            Honestly spyro is far worse even disregarding the colors. Notice how plastic it all looks on the right? Those rocks look straight outta Fortnite.

            You don't need to learn anything these days. Just hire Indians to do the coding and then shove 150gbs of assets into what could be a 30gb game and don't do anything to compress or optimize it.

        >bloating a game you owned to 30gb and forcing you to pay 30 just to use the shitty new graphics which map creators can and have forced meaning some lobbies don't let classic owners play at all
        >moronic melee balance changes, bastardized cutscenes and hideous new models that somehow look worse than heroes of newerth
        >myriad of new bugs, crashes, desyncs, horrible UX, invite button in single player games for no reason, holding control group keys jerks the camera around and spams the click noise, random broken meshes appearing as white primitives etc.
        >stripping away features from the original just to implement them poorly again years later, breaking tons of custom maps, launching the new editor would change your registry and prevent you from opening any old editor because it may as well be a fricking virus
        >only few decent changes were only ever introduced in pre-patches
        Reforged is the worst remake of all time.

              That's fresh coming from a steamchart poster. You can play it right now and get a queue in less than 1 mins. Both Blizzard and w3champions. And Grubby still streams it every day for 3k people. But hey just keep telling how shit everything is while never actually playing anything while wc3 meta is the best it has ever been.

                I have W3 on my blizzard account and I have to go out of my way to find it on the installs page because it doesn't even show up on their launcher. it just prompts me to spend the 30 dollars or whatever it is on the reskin.

      This is problem across multiple games, owing mainly to the "one setting fits all" school of shaders.
