With the recent release of Warcraft 3: Reforged, Blizzard is once again putting itself in opposition to its customers.
Originally announced during Blizzcon 2018, the remaster promised a reimagined experience, with new online matchmaking and updated visuals. However, the game launched to near-universal disapproval.
Players have noted numerous technical issues.
Connectivity issues and graphical bugs are among the most common complaints. Users have also complained that there is no new UI as promised, and the visuals still appear dated.
A far cry from the complete re-imagining touted by Blizzard.
Blizzard also changed the Terms and Conditions, giving them exclusive rights to all user-generated content in the game. Lastly, in another shockingly anti-consumer move, Blizzard has removed the original title from Battle.net.
Just Look at this Response
All of this has culminated in an outpouring of criticism from gamers worldwide. One user on Metacritic had this to say;
“So sad this was not as promised. Not only did it fail to live up to expectations, it ruined its original game…So unlike the Blizzard I grew up with.”
As of the time of writing, the game has a User Score of 0.5!
The game has received a massive 16,740 negative reviews, as opposed to a meagre 680 positive user reviews. Critics have been kinder, giving the game a critic score of 63 out of 100.
Blizzard has been no stranger to bad publicity as of late. This would seem to be yet another misstep with its community, a trend that unfortunately shows no sign of slowing. For more information on the Warcraft 3: Reforged release, you can head to GamesRadar for the original article.
