Should be really interesting to see the end result either way :D
The polishing the story part is nice they'll probably add more depth to the dialogues and the cinematics and cutscenes. The alternate versions of hero is a nice concept too, as long as it doesn't get put into the campaign mode.
I feel like Warcraft 3: Reforged would be the perfect place to explore the smaller stories in the Warcraft universe. I think we can all agree the old stories are great, and could benefit from this remaster, but I would love for them to utilize this platform to expand the current universe too.
And here I had high hopes after they seemed to be doing a good job maintaining the integrity of Classic. Wish they'd be able to restrain their desire to meddle in the old stuff, George Lucas should have served as a prime example of how re-mastering old stuff to reflect new stuff isn't always a great idea.
I for one am very happy with this. I've played Warcraft 3 over and over again hundreds of times over the years. Although I've never had a problem with a single line of dialogue, I'm open to them tweaking it slightly to improve it. Knowing the story as well as I do, it will be nice to experience a slightly altered version. Given how many retcons have happened in the years since Warcraft 3's release, I also think it will be really nice to have the story tightened up and made more consistent with WoW. If there's anything I don't like, I can always remember how it was in the original release. I really don't understand why some people are panicking so much over this. They are not changing the story much, if at all, they're just tweaking a few lines of dialogue. If you're THAT bothered by a single line change, the original game is still there.Honestly my biggest concern is over which voice actor they'll use for Arthas. In Warcraft 3, Justin Gross did a fantastic job. In WoW, Patrick Seitz did a poor job. At this point it's impossible to tell which voice actor they'll go with, as they used Seitz's lines for the Culling trailer, but used Gross' lines in the playable demo at BlizzCon.The new skins for generic heroes is also a really awesome idea. The more variation, the better.
Am i the only one against the WoWification of WarCraft 3?@Arthas, The shoulders are wrong, the faces are wrong, the hammer is wrong, pretty much everything is wrong, the hair looks good, but thats about it.@jaina, everything is wrong, she didnt wear plate back then, and shouldnt in the remaster.@demonhunter, there were no female demonhunters back then.It all comes off as halfassed to me.
I am cautiously optimistic regarding these changes. Unlike many, I like Golden's writing in general. I loved Arthas: Rise of the Lich King, and welcome things from that book being added into the game. I'm only wary they might change some things too much. And, like others said, I'm somewhat worried about the night elves. Here's hoping for more depth to characters and multiple musical numbers on Arthas mourning Invincible (I joke, but I'd kinda love that).(as a long side note, regarding the whole "Golden the Feminist" thing: I concede that line about Sylvanas being the first female warchief is somewhat odd considering the general lack of gender dynamics in Azeroth, but generally Golden is quite chill with that kind of thing. If you want to see what a "feminist propaganda" WoW novel is like, go check out Cycle of Hatred, by Keith R.A. DeCandido, released in 2006. See, I'm quite supportive of feminism, but that book is dissonant in how it portrays a very sexist Azeroth, much unlike the one we know nowadays. While the message doesn't bother me, it is distracting and weird.)
Will there be male versions of female heroes like Jaina? I would love to see male version of the Warden and Dark Ranger
I'm so glad they decided to update the story to fit with current lore. I was worried it would just be the same old story with the same mistakes just updated to look better.I also cannot wait Christie Golden prove once again prove how good she is at writing for this game! Can't wait!
