Well, according to Back2Warcraft, the feature "Game lobby is hosted in the cloud in closest supported data center to host" could bring some issues in the pairing of players which could be continents away...

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:

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
