Feb 8, 2014 Welcome to the Classic Games General Forum! Greetings, Classic Gamers! We're extremely pleased to present you with this new, modern forum for the discussion of Blizzard's classic games! What games are meant to be discussed in this forum? Classic games! If the game you want to discuss is Warcraft III or older, then you're in the right place. If you're wanting to discuss a more modern title, please use the links below instead: - World of Warcraft - Hearthstone - Diablo III - Heroes of the Storm - Starcraft II - Overwatch If you're looking for help with an issue that prevents you from playing a classic game, please check out the neighboring Support Forum. These forums are here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspects of Blizzard's games with other players. Community forums are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner when participating in these forums. The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Also, suspension or banishment from the game will always result in the same in regard to forum access. Your access to these forums is a “privilege,” and not a “right.” Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines. We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category. Code of Conduct Please use the search function at the top of the page to find information on a topic before you post a question. Everyone will appreciate it. Additional Forum Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, there are some common courtesy guidelines we ask you please follow. While these do technically fall within the Code of Conduct, they’re intended to clarify specific cases that may be confusing. General Discussion Forums are for discussion of topics directly related to each game The word general can be somewhat misleading, but any General Discussion forum is for threads about the game itself. If you wish to discuss other topics whether it’s polling for real-life statistics, or asking what someone listens to while playing, please post in our Off-Topic Forum. Please note that this includes comparisons with other games. Do not post in all capital letters, use excessive punctuation, etc. This practice is used to draw attention to a post. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask that you refrain from using sensational tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic is frowned on Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Posting IBL, IBTL, or its variants constitutes spamming We appreciate that our posters understand the Code of Conduct to the point where they can call whether or not a thread is in violation; however, saying “In before the lock” does not contribute to a constructive community and it does fall under spamming. If you wish to acknowledge a post that violates policy, please report it instead by using the biohazard symbol. Do not bump posts Bumping is posting any non-information for the purpose of raising a thread to the top of the list. Bumping a post is considered spamming and contributes nothing constructive to the discussion. Your thread will be seen; there is no need to continually bump it to the top of the list. Petition posts are frowned on This is a discussion forum. Petition threads do not contain much discussion, instead a petition is usually page after page of /signed. It isn’t constructive. If you have an issue with the game, please discuss it in a civil fashion. There are other places on the Internet to form online petitions. Do not post about locked or deleted threads Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. We lock before we post on a locked thread to stop the violation in question as soon as possible, so if you have yet to see a comment by a member of the community team on a locked thread, please wait for it and do not post on the subject. If you do have questions regarding forum moderation, please use the appropriate contact e-mail. If you have a post to report or a sticky to request, use the report option under the "Thumb's Down" button or email Please do not post linking to threads you feel should be moderated or stickied. By using the methods we have in place, we can moderate more efficiently. Game on!Kaltonis0 Feb 8, 2014
3h [War3] Please allow .MIX files in Patch 1.30 Dear Blizzard, The upcoming patch 1.30 introduces some really drastic and unforeseen changes in the game core for the first time after decades, such as: The MPQ archives have been replaced with flat, uncompressed files (data.000 and data.001). A new sound provider, "FMOD", has replaced "Miles Emulated 3D" and the other sound providers. Some well-known third-party tools (pJass, JassHelper and SFMPQ) have been officially acknowledged and included in the official distribution for the first time in the history of Warcraft III. The last one shows that Blizzard is finally acknowledging the huge amounts of time and effort that has been spent so far by various communities and individuals, and is taking steps towards utilizing their work for the benefit of the players. However, the introduction of the new sound provider "FMOD", destroyed a very practical and useful feature of Warcraft III, which had been left there unintentionally for more than 15 years: A pseudo-plugin system that would auto-load any .mix, .flt, .mixed, .mixtape files located inside the folder of WC3. This feature is still being actively used for hundreds of third-party plugins that enhance several aspects of Warcraft III, one of which is a reconnection plugin for custom games that I have been developing for 3 years and that is currently being used by thousands of players: So, if you are still open to suggestions and still intend to embrace the efforts of communities and individual developers, I would like to ask for the following: Please provide an official plugin system in Warcraft III, in place of the old feature that was lost. An auto-loading feature of .mix files in Warcraft III would suffice, but anything similar would be greatly appreciated as well. Please leave us an open door to contribute to the game we have loved for all these years.h3rmit12 3h
3h [WC3] 4v4 RT - Allies Purposefully Ruining Games - Something Needs To Change I know there is a thread already made for this general subject, but instead of posting there, I thought it would bring more light to the situation by making a separate thread. HALF of the games in 4v4 are ruined AT THE START by purposeful leavers. The other half are ruined by team killers who do a multitude of deliberately sinister things to the honest players who are just trying to enjoy the game. I'll compile a list just off the top of my head. Obviously this list does not include everything that happens in a game: - Leaving right at start of the game, making it a 3v4 from the very beginning - Uprooting their main tree right at the start and detonating their wisps - Unsummoning their buildings right at the start - Pretend to be AFK (then they leave right when the game ends, you can tell because your record updates to a loss, meaning they were just watching the whole time) - Putting their workers to mine gold then going AFK or pretending to go AFK - Holding their team hostage (give me gold or I'll TK / do 'this' or I'll leave) - When one of your allies has a grudge on one of your other allies and they TK each other, and you're left sitting there wondering why this happened to you - An ally thinks he is entitled to an expansion gold mine or an item drop and will kill your entire army because you thought differently. - Full-on verbal altercations turned to caps lock abuse and threats which turn to unwanted whispers even extending to after the game is over. - Purposely patrolling their workers at the start of the game and not using their resources. In summation, the overarching problem here is that users are going OUT OF THEIR WAY to ruin the game for honest players. This is a very serious problem and the game could benefit GREATLY from some sort of report-a-player system or at least some tool which holds users accountable for leaving games and/or abusing the system and other players. In just a few days alone this weekend I have encountered ALL of the above listed problems, and that was in less than 20 games. That's seriously the state of the game right now, and while it can honestly be amusing at some points, when it happens to you repeatedly, it nearly makes you want to throw your fist through a wall. Like someone said in another thread, there are people dedicating accounts to ruining 4v4 games. In a post by Nargothrond8, he highlights a few profiles of users who are deliberately searching 4v4 and leaving right at the start. The accounts have records of anywhere from 0-20 to 0-30. How is this acceptable? ... To put things in perspective, the community is greatly appreciate of all the work that has been done and continues to be done on our beloved Warcraft III. We are posting these concerns because we know you are listening and are hopeful that something may come of it. The WC3 community has always been a close knit and welcoming place. Holding players accountable for their actions and disconnects would surely benefit more than just 4v4. Thanks for reading. GL and HF to all.radiaNce6 3h

10h Diablo 2 - Whirlwind Barbs - WTF Happened? About 30 hours ago, the realm shut down for some kind've maintenance. Before the server shut down, tri-whirling on a Barbarian was not an issue. Everything was working seamlessly. Not even 10 minutes after players were able to log on, the entire mechanics of Whirlwind became BROKEN. It shows the animation of Whirlwind, but cannot hit if you're attempting to tri-whirl. I've tested this on multiple PCs and the issue is the same. If you try to tri-whirl, or do quick changes in your Whirlwind chain, the game shows you whirling, but you are UNABLE to get any hits in. Because of this, it is much easier to become killed whether in PvP or in PvM because you are left WIDE OPEN to be hit. Honestly, I'm surprised some of the Hardcore mode players haven't come foward with this. Literally 30 hours ago, everything worked 100% perfect. But after your little server shutdown yesterday, Whirlwind Barbarians are basically unplayable now. So Blizzard, would you please look into this issue? For 20 years now an issue like this has never been prevalent, but after one little server shutdown, the whole build is ruined. Regards.Pillion221 10h

11h Weekend Issue. Good Morning Classic Games Development Team. This was a great weekend on US West HC Ladder. The servers are working very well, at least a lot better than they have in recent months. There is however an issue that arises sometimes where one is usually forced to save and exit from the game. What I think is happening is when a melee character, in this case a whirlwind barb, is surround by very fast and high numbered mobs with mana burn or some other reason to force the use of Concentrate while surrounded, attacking is not possible. I think this is initiated by attempting to strike a monster just out of reach—behind the monster in front of the character. This has happened to me about a half a dozen times this past weekend, mostly on the back end of the River of Flame, in around archway structures. When it does happen damage can not be dealt. The character goes through the motions and and sounds, but does not hit the monsters. The merc deals damage, but all my character can do is run around, take damage, click on things like chests, active shrines, open portals, use potions and pickup items and gold. But there is no damage and I can’t enter a portal (character says “I can’t”) nor use a waypoint. When no monsters are around I can wait it out and it takes about a minute for things to work properly, usually though, I’m forced to save and exit and then return to the game which brings everything back to normal. As a HC player I’m not too worried about this, so far it’s been easy to handle but I can see it going south and causing a great deal of misery. :DBearTribe13 11h
11h Patch to combine US East and US West on WC3? Is there any reason why a patch could not be created to combine US East and US West on WC3 to reduce wait times during 4vs4 search? The current wait is worth it, but why keep the US on different gateways?Dan8 11h

You can quickly look through these three Blizzard comments and see for yourself. Clicking on the green Blizzard staff name will take you to the actual post. Please spread the word to help prevent innocent players from further being scammed by black market sellers. Only buy the game directly from this website or unopened copies from legit brick and mortar stores. :) ... ... ...BearTribe28 1d
1d [D2] find item is a little busted along with other barb mechanics, find item seems to be at least partially broken. sometimes bodies are unpoppable. the corpse is available and the animation plays, but the corpse doesnt change. if you get close enough or at the right angle you can pop certain corpses this way, but not always. also, i use fcr on my barb and if im popping too quickly, sometimes i will end up in a state where i cant teleport anymore. again, the cast animation plays, but i dont move. other skills may not work properly either then, im not sure.stuffedtiger2 1d

THE GAME that changed Action RPGS. The game with a unique loot sytem and trading. DO you not care about this JEWEL of a game. What happend when did you give up? WHY CAN HACKS TAKE OVER BATTLE.NET AND YOU DO NOTHING!. Stop focusing everything on the new stuff some of us enjoy the classics. It makes me relax after a <Edited by Moderator> day of work, I enjoy doing mf runs with friends. Best ppl i have ever met online was in D2 i can call them my brothers. They know me more then my wife or parents ever did. Do you not understand that diablo 2 is a very important game to alot of people. I KNOW I KNOW what you will say " We want to focus on future games" BUT WE DONT!. So Please Hire someone to just work on d2 and fire the current employees that manage d2 servers. Stop playing with thousands of players emotions and life in some cases. Get it togheter blizzard we love you. Thousands of us still have faith you will change and make D2 the game it is ment to be. Please Blizzard PLEASE!Koreka15 1d

1d [War3] Having bad ping on PTR is not only no-fun, it's also hurting the game Many players, myself included, are eager to try out the new balance changes and map pool. This is really exciting, there is so much stuff to figure out and discover! But I'm afraid our enjoyment is being greatly limited by outdated technology. And here I am referring to ping of course. Playing on 400 ms has never been enjoyable. And especially in the modern age of gaming when everyone is used to better, this is no fun at all anymore. And that's what it's like for Europeans to play matches on the PTR. For Russians it's even worse. When you have massive wide reaching changes like 1.30 is bringing, you have to be able to rely on a lot of testing. On the community. On feedback. Because this stuff cannot just be theory crafted. It has to go through trials in practice. And this is just not the case right now. Not sufficiently anyways. Barely anyone is playing on PTR ladder. Because it's so frustrating. Queue times are horrible. Making the experience even worse. Further compounding the issue of little testing happening, with people quickly giving up on the server entirely. It can seem like small and insignificant enough of a thing to not be too concerned about. "After all, it's only a PTR, we're gonna be done with that soon anyways". Such a line of thinking can be very dangerous in my opinion. What happens on the PTR lays the groundwork for what is to come in the "real game". What we might screw up here because we didn't deem it worthy enough of our full attention, we may very well have to get back to in the future. To fix the issues we overlooked before. Wasting tremendous amounts of time. And while we scramble to get it right, the game could be in a very unenjoyable state for months on end. Turning masses of players away. And keep in mind, this is not only an issue for 1.30. This will continue to be a problem for all future patches and PTRs if nothing is changed. So how can this be addressed? a) Have different PTRs for different regions, with their own dedicated servers. b) Keep the one region PTR but track players' IPs and only match them with other players "near" them. Hosting their game on a server close to them. I am sure there are other possible solutions to this, that I am not seeing, as well.remodemo4 1d
2d Warcraft Remastered Bueno me gustaria trasladar a todos esta idea. Despues de ver el exito de starcraft remastered, me gustaria trasladar a blizzard por que no hacen un remaster de todos los warcraft y juntarlo todo en un unico juego, o acaso seria mejor que el 1 y 2 esten juntos y el tercero por separado.Sanguinius750 2d

2d So, when will we actually hear something from blizzard? This is insane, just look at all these threads! Classic team, what are you doing, other than deleting the evidence of you not communicating with your actual fans. ;) Other than, Upgrading the forum maximum posts per page, Deleting telekinesis without a word, Screwing up the numbers so everything goes desync, fixing the numbers somewhat so you dont desync As often. \_(o.O)_/ No patch notes. No words of other bug-fixes, patches, mistakes, yes.... You cant ignore mistakes if they were. Do you have any older saves? Is it possible to reroll the patches and make it great again? Or is it not? Be a good sport, lol. you can obv delete this post, as it violates "do not ask for blue post". But looking at the frustration of your players, I'm pretty sure you need to give us some concrete notes. I bet Just One sentence can calm down hundreds/thousands of players.Yiup17 2d

2d Hurricane Account Closure of Death-Diablo II edition I just returned from a 83 day incarceration period in Houston post - hurricane Harvey, though not among the thousands immediately affected by the flood-and-release waters, I was incarcerated awaiting trial among those transferred from the flooded city-jail, in a very packed county jail. I won my cases nevertheless as slow to trial they became but I have a problem now. I had recently dropped my refurb laptop and activated a theft-security feature on the device... This device was a government service machine prior to my ownership, and it is impossible to restore my hard drive through Dell-Intel tech support, and a new hard drive is ultimately required. I am unsure of the possibility to restore 3 lost accounts that have been deactivated, if they have been... I am eyeing a solid-state hard drive to return to the network sometime in the near future. I had completed an Obedience runeword, that I have yet put to practice,even to this day, this feat took the entire previous season! There were plans to see this gameplay carried on in the non-ladder, is this possible with my older accounts? They are @Octotheist, @OOxile, and @ArchbishopLaz-USEast. p.s. This is a fwd: to the dead @support so just grit your teeth while reading all this, I'm literally just coming home to all this and I'm reading about whirlwind barb bugs. p.s.s. Hoping to hear from a Blue on this!octotheist3 2d
2d I would love to see WC4, or WC3 remastered. Hello battle net friends. I was watching Mr. Yagut stream some WC3 on Twitch this morning, and it got me thinking about how much I miss that game.... I've been a lifelong classic RTS fan ever since the early Wacraft and Stacraft days. Recently, Starcraft II really scratched that itch for the last few years for me, but now that support is winding down for that title, and I've played through it plenty, I'm eager for a new RTS on the horizon. Hands down, the game I would very most like to see go into development would have to be Warcraft 4. Or even Warcraft 3 remastered would be fun as well... particularly if the graphics were updated in such a way that I crank up a modern graphics cards in the options and play with some year 2020 level graphics. I know Blizzard has said in the media things like "If the fans have enough interest in Warcraft 4 we'll make it", so I simply want to do my part and signal my interest here in the hopes that any wandering devs might see my two cents. Pretty please with cherries on top? :-)GabesRage5 2d
2d I want to donate WC3 disc, but remain owner of CD-Key, is that possible? I own warcraft 1 & 2 plus expansion (not edition) also I own warcraft 3 plus expansion. Since 1 & 2 can be downloaded from random sites across the internet, I do not need the CD's anymore... and as far as part 3 goes, I would like to either donate them to Goodwill for someone else to enjoy, maybe give them away, or send them to Blizzard if you can resell them in a store somewhere as used. My only problem is that I wish to keep the CD-Keys issued to my name for WC3 and the Expansion, if I give the CD's away, and they use the CD-Key, would I still be able to download the games from after someone else used them? If not, then what do I do with the discs? In that case I would not want to share the game because I still want the option to download it if necessary... I just wanna get rid of it because I get easily addicted to Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne to the point where it very quickly ruins my life. If you create a WC3-Remastered or WC4 I would buy it though... If somebody could remove the CD-Key from my account if I donated the CD's themselves, I don't wanna do that, in that case could I send them to Blizzard and you could issue the CD's new CD-Keys? Otherwise, what should I do with all these games, do you recommend I just throw them away, since they can all be downloaded? Not sure what to do...but, I see no reason to hold onto the CD's themselves.Dan4 2d
2d Would like to purchase WC2 BNET w/CD-Key ... That is dumb, why would Blizzard not make a digital download version. I owned the game since before it had a version and I want to buy a version with a new CD-Key. Please create this option, I am not asking for a remake of Warcraft 2, just make it available for purchase, and use that profit towards a WC3-Remastered or WC4. Thank you.Dan4 2d
2d Whats going on with mules now i created a mule and put items on it then went back to character selection and its gone instantly...

3d A Remaster (D2) would be a bad idea... Hi. Don't know if it's really a project, or just rumours, but I think a remaster would be a bad idea for many reasons: 1.- Because we are romantic players, played the game since long (most of us) in the 2000's and we like the game as it is, don't want ''cool'' and modern graphics or new gameplay. 2.- The game would lose it's magic and uniqueness. And still, after that many years, is full of bugs we just accept... 3.- New and youngest players have no interest in diablo 2 anymore, they go play other kind of games. Instead of a remaster, the game would recover ''new'' adepts or comebacks simply adding some new little quests (like Pandemonium event, something like this, but new) in some patch from time to time. Revalancing/nerfing some skills that are too overpowered (smite, hammer, charged stryke, etc.) and enhancing ones that are too weak (fire traps, fire druid skills, martial arts, lot of melee skills of many chars...), making pvm interesting again and not just hammer/javazon/lite sorc thing in runs and smite for ubers. Change the exp farming area; cs/baal runs are pretty boring, mostly because we do it 1000000 times to lvl... and did it again and again for years; give other areas the same experience gain!; it could be nice so we could have more options to do runs and not always the same ones. Stop the ''map changing in every game'' thing... it makes no sense and give botters an advantage. Ofc... we can memorize all maps, cos they repeat -.- ofc ofc. Nah. Maps should be just 1 for each area and be always the same pattern. My bathroom does not move everytime i esc/enter my home, actually... why Bal Throne stairs do? Can think of many more things, but I guess you can do it by yourselves. No one is reading, anyway, but meh... was bored, just saying ideas. Salutations.LookNoFurthe16 3d

3d some tip for getting started in multiplayer ? so i played warcraft 3 since i was a child but just recently i started playing multiplayer and its alot more difficult than hard bots and so far i lost 15 matches in multiplayer i tried playing night elfs then i tried humans but lost all games they just get fat so fast any tips for getting better ? or we can play together if you wantpicarica4 3d
3d [WC3-PTR] Queue building bug I come across a bug where queuing for example 2 farms will leave the blue placeholders, but the 2nd building doesn't get built. I effectively lost my 80/20 resources but the farm doesn't pop up. After finishing building, the worker goes idle. I can issue more orders to them, even build a farm on top of the older farm, and the blue placeholder is still there like the building stays in an infinite queue. This has happened to me so far: - Queuing night elf shop trees and moon wells. - Queuing orc burrows. - Queuing human farms. Haven't tried on UD.Abaddon0 3d

4d Tourny prelims time Would it be at all possible to reduce the prelim times they are way too long and alot of finals hardly played since none want to wait so long? Just a thoughtSwordPuppy1 4d
4d Please make the item changes optional. In the past you could use items and windwalk to jump certain distances. And some custom games like Island Defense used this to create a very fast paced gameplay. It was a required skill to be considered good. Also in many rpg custom games loot is annoying now because all loot stacks in one spot. We can understand you guys changed it for melee but this is about custom games. We would appreaciate it.Ryo0 4d
4d Disconnected from Please Reconnect Fresh install along with a follow up reinstall and I still cant get past the error of "Disconnected from Please Reconnect" when trying to play diablo 2 online. Ive ran as administrator and have the latest patch installed as well , ran compatibility tests and still nothing seems to work. Please help with any information on how I can play diablo 2 once again as I have over the past 15 years. Always a great classic to come back to and I've never had issues before now.Devsters17270 4d

5d D2 Asia Server has gone Insane. Greetings! On behalf of Asia gamers I want to report a severe problem. The problem has occurred for more than a week and we gamers from Asia has not received any updates nor a move to handle this issue. Continuous and frequent Realm Down together with Failing to join the game, to name a few. This problematic realm down lasts more than a half day. We the gamers have raised our concerns and voices to Blizzard Korea hoping they can make it right, but no. Have a look in the Asia Server. It’s literally insane. Please fix the server and do something!Whiskeyn7 5d
5d [War3] Custom campaigns not working? It seems custom campaigns have stopped working with WC3...? The demo campaign isn't even included anymore and I see no way to load other custom campaigns(putting them in Campaigns folder does not work). Edit: Only now did I notice the existence of the support forum. If appropriate, those with the power, move thread there.martixy0 5d

6d Footman 1.30 vs 1.29 Defend research Hey, I heard Defend got changed a bit and decided to do my own research on this cause this is really interesting. What I found out is that Defend is now deflects attacks of damage type Magic! And reduces damage from attacks of this damage type and Spells! I'm not sure what is a bug or what is intended, but I found 1 clear bug in WorldEdit that is not using one of the settings for Defend-like skill. So these are ladder significant changes: 1) Defend now reduces damage from spells (Frost Nova) by 10% and Magic damage attacks (like Shamans) by 10% 2) Magic attacks now got deflected as pierce attacks do. This is either bug or a huge buff. 3) Deflected piercing attacks deal 65% damage to the attacker. Deflected Magic attacks does 100% damage to the attacker and it works both for ground and flying units. Now imaging Frost Wyrm attack got deflected back. Spoiler: it even chills! 1.30 Defend data according to my research in a spreadsheet: Or as img: Map making-significant changes and longer explanation: This is a screenshot of the 1.29 options found in WorldEdit: This are the options for 1.30: How defend works: There is a chance (Data - Chance to Deflect) that projectile of attackers with damage type Piercing, Magic or Spell will be deflected back to the attacker. If Deflect occurs: Then projectile is fired back to the attacker and when it reaches it attacker takes damage and may even be killed by it. If attacker dies of deflected attack you even get XP as usual. Even some attack effects (like frost attack) will got deflected with the projectile and will apply on the attacker. Deflect never occur when attacked by buildings such as Towers or Necropoly. The damage attacker takes is computed as follows: (Original Damage) * 0.65 - for damage type Piercing and (Original Damage) * 1.0 - for damage type Magic and Spell. See below about this. The victim (footman) takes: (Original Damage) * (Data - Damage Taken) * (Data - Deflect Damage Taken (Piercing)) for damage type Piercing and (Original Damage) * (Data - Damage Taken) * (Data - Deflect Damage Taken (Spells)) for damage type Magic and Spells (Damage type Spell is never seen in WC3 Melee) If Deflect does NOT occur: The victim takes less damage computed as: (Original Damage) * (Data - Damage Taken) for damage Piercing damage type and (Original Damage) * (Data - Magic Damage Reduction) for damage type Magic and Spell (This is true for Spells like Frost Nova too) NB: Damage type Spell is NEVER seen in WC3 Melee but can be set in the Editor. This damage type is equivalent to damage type of a spell being cast. If you set this damage type in editor the icon for it looks the same as Normal attack type but does full damage to most units. I tested it too but it is irrelevant for ladder as Spells (like Frost Nova) got reduced by 10% but NEVER Deflected back by Defend. NB: Armor types reductions/increases are computed after the aforementioned computations. A bug in the option in Editor and WC3 ? : Data - Damage Dealt - is % of damage attacker takes when projectile got deflected. The % is computed based on the attack power itself. Not the damage dealt to the victim (no armor or other reductions are taken into consideration) !!! Changing this causes no effect and actually is 65% hardcoded?. (Both in 1.30 and in 1.29) If you want to test it for yourself cause I didnt create public test map then you need to set an option Game Data Set: Melee (Latest patch) in options of a map in WorldEdit.Romeno3 6d
