I have to say... for years, I have been saying, if only somehow the game could just be remade with sexier graphics, and finally add the balance (well overdue ^_^ ) to a paladins heal to scale up making them a formidable opponent, thus orc can no longer be undeniably superior
When I seen that they were doing this with Starcraft... my eyes was like
I figured, finally... now only a matter of time before war2 gets it. I mean, war2, was the beginning.. it made blizzard. First game I ever played online, and I continued to play, faithfully pretty much up until warcraft 3 came out. I see alot of people talking about "well if they did remaster it, they would have to remake it from the ground up". Actually, they could start by using the engine they created for the Starcraft version. I guess from everything I have come across... They are saying they are going to do Warcraft 3. That Warcraft 2 will not be remastered, because "It is not that fun anymore". Anyone that played War2, that stopped, did not quit because it was not fun anymore, but simply that playing all these new age games with amazing graphics, smooth mousing and movements, custom keybinds... War2 is still, and always will be, nearly a perfectly built game.. and for a game of its time, Absolutely. I am still playing Warcraft 3 right now and I see no reason to waste time remastering it so to speak. It is perfectly fine the way it is, give or take a few patch balances.
Is anyone feeling like this definitely should be reconsidered before entirely saying no? I mean... for all the dedicated warcraft fans, this is the ultimate prostate exam. To see the possiblity of such an amazing game, be able to make a comeback, and modernized... and then take that idea and throw it out the window on us.. forcing the game further into the abyss.. with donkey kong, frogger, and all of the other great games of the past ^_^
Curious on how other warcraft lifers are feeling about this...
I started playing warcraft when I was 11... 23 years later.. and pretty much the only games I still play.. War2, War3, WoW arenas.
Safe to say warcraft has been a significant part of my life... Don't play with my emotions blizzard ^_^
