It’s been some time since we’ve provided an update on Warcraft III: Reforged. Many of you have asked for us to support some of the features which were a part of the original Warcraft III experience. We’re pleased to announce that our upcoming patch 1.33.0 will include Ranked Play, Player Profiles, Leaderboards, and a few additional updates. You can read the patch notes to learn more.

We plan to continue to work on delivering multiple updates this year, but rather than simply telling you, we plan to show you. Keep an eye out on the official Warcraft III: Reforged site to stay on top of the latest developments as we continue to move forward.

To all our committed players around the world who continue to play and enjoy Warcraft III: Reforged, we would like to thank you for your love of this game.

Lok-tar ogar!

Which means you can never play the final patch release version of the original Warcraft III; just the unpatched version from the CD.

    Literally a cancer to its original copy (both in spirit and programming).

    If you wanted the play the Campagin it probably hasn't broken anything, never tested it myself but who the hell would trust Blizzard to even do that properly?
    Just pirate it, Warcraft 3 is abandonware so its completely legal.

    Were peoples major problems just the online stuff?
    if you're still going to buy Reforged (actually don't), you're better off playing the Re-Reforged

    Single player most of the problems people had were in the realm of broken promises. (IE: Not redoing the story to reflect retconed lore, not redoing all in game cinematics to be like the strath one, completely removing the custom campaign feature, stuff like that).

    You can play through the original campaigns without issue though, they work. It just leaves a really bad taste because of everything they promised to do and simply never did.

    Re-reforged is a great mod too but its not done yet (I think just the human campaign is? I dunno)

    Wait you can't play the original anymore?

    You can if you have the disks, but if you try to connect to Battle.net, it immediately updates you to Reforged. You can TECHNICALLY play, but it's a lot of steps required beyond the average user. Let's say you uninstalled at some point and want to reinstall, you would have to A.) have the disks and B.) find a website with the right files to let you update. This allows you to play Single Player. If you want to do more than that, you'd then have to modify the files to connect to fan-servers instead of Battle.net, allowing you to play online with people in the original client.

    Apparantly not. I tried installing mine from the Classic games page and once installer in done it takes me to the Reforged launcher.

    I lost my discs decades ago... I usually boosted up a downloaded torrent and played that way when I got the itch in years past. I'm guessing that isn't available anymore?

    Unfortunately, it is not legal to pirate abandonware.
