Quote from: Back2Warcraft
We are alarmed by the new patch released on the PTR.

It is now impossible to select a server location when a game is created, bnet automatically picks the server closest to the game host

When Lucifer will face Foggy in the future, how is that going to work?

IF hosting on Battle.net for Warcraft III: Reforged (and SD) doesnt change, it's basically impossible to run tournaments outside of NetEase (China).

We must let Blizzard know that this CANNOT happen!

EDIT: MORE NEWS:

It seems that there's some issues with the pregistering, mainly with the fact that they're not getting linked with your classic CD keys. Here's the news link:

Quote from: Pete Stilwell
Hail Warchiefs, Lichs, Commanders, and Keepers,

You made announcing Reforged at BlizzCon an incredible moment. Thank you.

The team poured themselves into getting The Culling ready, and we’ve been blown away with the sentiment and positivity around this game we all love. We’re excited to see the lively discussion on this shiny new forum - thanks to Web & Mobile for making it available!

There is much to discuss.

Right now, we are addressing the snag with pre-purchase not awarding access to classic Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne. We expect to have a solution in your hands by December 1st with 1.30.2.

Cheers,
Classic

Warcraft III Reforged

Hello my dear WC3 Modder Community:

Blizzard woke up us with a tremendous news, so big and unveilable that, for a moment, I thought we were on April's fools. But no, and DEFINITELY NO!!!!! this is a REAL NO FAKE news: Warcraft 3 will enter in the Blizzard's wandagon of remastering their old games.

In this writing I'll show my own perspective about this revolution in WC3, and this will mean that there's a lot to discuss and share. If you find something inaccurate, please share with us your thoughts about it.

Previous moves.
They started with Starcraft Remastered, offering as an slightly improved version of this classic game adapted to be played in up to date monitor standards and nicer 2D graphics to make the visuals of the game according the the new demand.
But that move had a higher version, Starcraft 2, which now is a game not so popular, with an awesome game engine but with an over complicated editor that scares the users to make a single mod. It's bet for passing the WC3 community to the fields of Starcraft failed boldy and now this game is in the land of free games to try to get an audience.

The WC3 community: a retrospective
Blizzard at last heard us... is probably the feeling of the WC3 community. Years of oblivion, after the patch 1.26 and very few and spaced updates to the classic WC3 game with requests done by the community not attended for years, made the community to find its own way and the result is that we developed our own tools for everything: coding, modelling, skinning and more.
  • Vexorian implemented a better coding in the WC3 engine offering a script layer called vJASS and the final tool, JNGP that moved us to a new level of coding possibilities.
  • In the area of multiplayer, WC3 + classic Bnet was not the best thing to deal, and with the problem of port configuration, lacking hosting system and the limitations of the game engine in terms of keeping the users connect in a running game, or even more to track players and stats in the game, produced a need of supplying a technological framework to solve this issues by external companies or communities like ENT and MakeMeHost, which with the help of application like Ghost++ and such were able to automate the hosting process in a moderate to decent way.
  • In the modelling, despite Blizzard offered to the community the Art tools, this became old and obsolete just for the requirements to only work with 3DMax 4 or 5, it was mandatory to implement tools like Neodex which works with recent version of 3DMax and GMAX. Not to mention the exclusive tools for basic modelling like Magos and MDLVIS, which helped to the non expert in the modelling field to achieve from good enough model editions to ripping models from other games.
  • And there's a lot of more tools which were the process of reverse engineering of all the stuff done in the WC3 engine, and the decompilation of all the W3X format.
All of this has created its own technological ecosystem around WC3, where the users loves their tools, the developers spent too many hours improving them and giving the community the best they could, and it took the neccesary time time to get used and become dependent to them. when Blizzard started again in the scenario with the new patches, this brought to the third party developers some winds of fear and disapproval. A big example of this is the latest patch (1.30.2) which  has started a serious clash between Blizzard and the communities that manages hostbots. This can be seen clearly in the ENT's Discord chat:
Quote from: ENT's Discord chat
Link
I for one am a very disappointed customer of Blizzard entertainment. For dozens of years, they have left WC3 players to themselves, without any updates, without any 'real' customer support, without any consideration for us. The War III community has had to bring the 21st century to Warcraft III on their own, notably with host bots, ELO, stats tracking, games list, communities, private hosting (many were unable on their own), multiple handy commands, etc. Competitive gaming environment were also a direct result of stats tracking and community regroupment with higher ELO bots, leagues, etc. Let's not forget @ENT Staff and other communities' staff who have helped to maintain our games free of ruiners, trolls, etc. Te list of things that the host bots bring to the community goes on and on. As of late, Blizzard has decided to get involved again in WCIII, pushing an agenda we still have no idea about. Some of their updates were good (24-players slots, more balanced units, faster replay speed, etc.) However, they have recently decided to get rid of host bots for no specific reason.

In association with other Wc3 communities, we have engaged with blizzard in an attempt to change their minds about bots. At this point, multiple thousands of customers had signed a petition asking blizzard not to remove bots. Dozens and dozens of users had been posting on blizzard forums in uproar. Blizzard did not care, they went on with their plan. We asked them to integrate the necessary features of host-bots into Wc3 itself.; They added !kick and !ban to manage the Public Relations aspect. When we asked them to delay the removal of host-bots until most features had been implemented, they simply refused to answer.
In order to keep Warcraft III community alive and with the same gaming standards players had been used to for years, ENT has spent many hours developing and promoting WC3Connect (https://entgaming.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=135760). However, today around midnight, Blizzard, in a direct attack to its playerbase (albeit possibly faithful to their longstanding incompetence), has decided to ban all of ENT's host-bots.

While we are at a late stage and communication is unlikely to be a possibility, I believe Blizzard still has to answer for its actions and be accountable to its customers. While we all know that Blizzard does not give a single shit about the input on their website ( https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/12790218/ ), direct messaging is slightly harder to ignore.

For those of you who wish to demand answers, feel free to contact the lead developer who has been pushing for the removal of bots.

How can we interpret this reaction? a community that don't want to receive the desired attention from Blizzard, or a community that fear the change and uses the shield of its own development as an argument to demand the respect for the host bots system. The true thing is that Blizzard at last is aware of all the work put into the game by the community and not thanks to them, and the great ideas that this Wc3 community has achieved with the custom games done in the process (DOTA and AoS genre, Tower Defense genre, just to mention a few). This has shown to Blizzard that they've lost too many power and this attitude let other companies and indie enterprises to take advantage in the game market.

The next move: Give stamina to WC3

We can't deny that this move is really awesome, the improved graphics (which remembered me of this project) made me think they implemented the SC2 engine over to keep the balanced style of WC3, than ks God that's not the case. According to this list made by @Wareditor this are the features of this remastering (all the information from grubby stream):

Hello my dear WC3 modders!!

Here I'm testing the new feature implemented in the site which is an integration with Discord channel. Now (in theory) when you create a topic, or reply to a topic or a new member gets registered, this will be known through the chat.

Of course, there could be adjustments in the functionality, and I hope this could help us in get more integrated the site with the chat.

As always, any comments and suggestions are welcome.

HUGSS!!

With all this stuff, we addressed a new situation: many maps that worked in the previous versions of WC3 are not working anymore in this version, so it's needed to make a kind of upgrade to the maps and manage a versioning in them: save the map for players which don't intend to upgrade to 1.29 and offer a version compatible with 1.29. Seeing the changes made in the coding part it's mandatory to check the functions created in the custom maps to fix possible bugs in the porting to 1.29.

If you need any help, you can share your issues in the discord channel https://discordapp.com/invite/GnBkkrn or in the "Patch 1.29 map conversion thread".

Let's rejoice for this new patch!!!

Hello my fellow blizzmodders:

Some days ago there was a new patch in the PTR installation of Warcraft III and this update brought us, after a long loooooong time, a proper justice to the WC3 community. A new HUGE update, not a lesser one with the typical few changes and tiny fixes that only affected the ladder gamers in melee maps. This patch brings to us an unexpected change to the possibilities in the WC3 engine and this time, it was clear that the community demands were at last heard.

Would this a signal about a Warcraft 3 Remastering? probably as it has been said by several sites related to games [1 & 2 examples] will be Warcraft 4 on hold?, it's now a serious possibility. But in the meantime we can say at least: REJOICE wc3 community of modders, our prays has been heard and there's more to come.

Important changes in the game: Link
 
  • Widescreen: The game now supports true widescreen; there's some glitches in the moment but it's expectable to have some fixes in the moment. Right now in really width screens there's a blind mouse selection part that could occur. And it has been reported issues with other video processors (Intel graphics)
  • 24 Players: What??? YES!!! now you can make a map with support to 24 players!!! something incredible to be true... and it's TRUE!!. this brings a new possibility to new ideas for maps. This of course implies new player colors to try.
  • Bug fixes: stuff related with Mac compatibility and clan creation has been addressed.

World Editor Changes: Link
  • Object limit increased to 30,000
  • Map size limit increased to 480 x 480
  • Tile set limit increased to 16
  • Max execution number increased to 1666666
  • Max food limit increased to 999
  • Max resource limit increased to 9999999
  • Array size increased from 8192 to 32768
  • Display mana bar

And some Map Pools & Balance Updates which are described here.

Soon I will open a topic to deal with the new natives, where I'll do testings to each new function added to the WC3 game engine. Stay tuned to this topic so you can share and discuss the new features.
EDIT: topic opened: http://wc3jass.com/5555/patch-1-29-new-natives-a-testing-place/

What do you think about this patch?? please tell us your feelings and expectations.

HUGS!!!

Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

Today is that lat day of the year where is an opportunity to remember all the thing we've done so far.

Thanks God, there's new stuff in the community to stand out, and I'll try to summarize.
  • One account for all the affiliate sites: With the new implementation, all the sites that belongs to the Blizzmod community allows to use the same account to access them. So if you registered your account in wc3modding.info, this same user and password can be used in the other places (blizzmod.info, wc3jass.com, etc...)


  • Resource filtering and easier search method available: You can see in blizzmod.info, wc3modding.info and wc3jass.com offer direct access links to the resources offered in those sites. All of them allows to have a clear description about its features and they can be filtered and searched by different categories, keywords and rating.


  • Topic integration with social networks: Every topic in blizzmod.info, wc3modding.info and wc3jass.com have links to Facebook and Google+, so you can share this topics easily with your friends. All the pages show nicely in those social networks. If the topic has an image in the first post, it will be used to stand out the topic in the sharing process.


  • Wiki/ integrated to the site: This section is aimed for integration with the coding highlighting. If you check, in the jass coding you can see a link over the function name which allows you to create or view a documentation to that function.

  • Related topic / resource: This feature allows to link any topic in all the pages from the Blizzmod network with other topics. This is useful to build "packs" of resources or to keep a trace of previous topics. This improves the chances that your topic gets accessible via google search.


  • Discord Chat: And the last but not least, the chat integration with Discord, where we're keeping together the community in support and chit chat in a reliable and faster way. It's easy to join, just follow the link :D

What's coming for 2018
  • Implement a faster way to upload resources. Right now you have to do two posting editions in order to implement the resources with images and download links.
  • uploading the model resources from the backup, so we can have again the big model database from the 2012 times. That's a big task to do.
  • Improve the icon submission system. Right now it's is slow and tedious to upload icon to the site.
  • Prepare the last version of JNGP (2.0.10) according to the new changes that seems to come in new patches of WC3

With all of this, I wish to all the community a happy new year 2018, expecting that your projects and goals gets successful and we hope this site keeps being useful to the WC3 community.

Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

In the coming patch is appearing the new balances in some maps, starting with a map called Therenas Stand, a classic and nice melee map. For this I'll let you a nice video from Back2Warcraft.



With the coming PTR, you can now test a new pool system. I can give you an explanation, but Blizzard itself does the job better than me :P

Let's read from Blizzard itself!!!

Greetings,

Classic Games is excited to announce Warcraft III PTR will be live in the coming days. Focus will be on new map pools. The China Joy show match on the updated Terenes Stand between Fly and 120 was the debut of the types of improvements we can't wait to share.

The new map pools will be a mixture of three things – must haves from the current pools, classic maps from older pools, and new ladder version maps. The ladder version maps (LV), are original maps that have undergone significant improvements.

Below is an overview of our objectives and specific lists of changes by pool. So take some time to read up on the new LV maps in the coming days so you will be well prepared when the PTR goes live:

General Improvements & Gameplay Objectives

    Balanced creep camp difficulty progression from early to late game
    Balanced creep drop tables for better item progression from early game to late game
    Item diversity: Varied Level 1 though 6 charged items and Level 1 through 6 permanent items
    Balanced all start locations: total amount and starting distance from lumber, equal amount of spacing, equal size choke points, et cetera
    Balanced expansion distance from start locations
    Decluttered points of interest to reduce visual competition during gameplay
    Retextured map surfaces for better visual clarity - both on screen and mini-map
    Minimized the size of trees and doodads that obstructed player view of points of interest
    Added cliff lines or deep water to edges of the map - removing hard edges (aesthetic choice for immersion)
    Properly placed trees and doodads on the pathing grid: full-cell Medium Grid to half-cell Medium Grid alternate
    Removed the rolling shoreline waves from rolling hills to remove the noise the waves created - remains for cliff shores



List of 1 v 1 maps

    1 v 1 Map Pool (New)



List of 2 v 2 maps

    2 v 2 Map Pool (New)



List of 3 v 3 maps

    3 v 3 Map Pool (New)

Hello again my dear Blizzmodders!!!

Today, Blizzard offers to the community a new patch with some bug fixes needed so desperately, at least in terms of the modding community.

Hail Warchiefs,

Patch 1.28.5 is live. Our focus is on shoring up the last few significant 1.28 issues:

Bug Fixes

    File paths and user names think more globally in game and World Editor
    World Editor properly imports custom assets again
    Switching between Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne no longer causes a crash



Cheers,
Classic Games

Among all the changes made in this patch, there's one that is very important for modding and is the restoration of the import functionality. Now you can add again custom models, skins and other WC3 resources. Let's hop e they don't keep fixing one thing by screwing up two. According to the few posts from the community, it seems the patching way in this game is moving (at last) in the right direction.

As always, the screen shot for evidence :)
