1d [War III] New Map Pool Greetings, Classic Games is excited to announce Warcraft III PTR will be live in the coming days. Focus will be on new map pools. The China Joy show match on the updated Terenes Stand between Fly and 120 was the debut of the types of improvements we can't wait to share. The new map pools will be a mixture of three things – must haves from the current pools, classic maps from older pools, and new ladder version maps. The ladder version maps (LV), are original maps that have undergone significant improvements. Below is an overview of our objectives and specific lists of changes by pool. So take some time to read up on the new LV maps in the coming days so you will be well prepared when the PTR goes live: General Improvements & Gameplay Objectives Balanced creep camp difficulty progression from early to late game Balanced creep drop tables for better item progression from early game to late game Item diversity: Varied Level 1 though 6 charged items and Level 1 through 6 permanent items Balanced all start locations: total amount and starting distance from lumber, equal amount of spacing, equal size choke points, et cetera Balanced expansion distance from start locations Decluttered points of interest to reduce visual competition during gameplay Retextured map surfaces for better visual clarity - both on screen and mini-map Minimized the size of trees and doodads that obstructed player view of points of interest Added cliff lines or deep water to edges of the map - removing hard edges (aesthetic choice for immersion) Properly placed trees and doodads on the pathing grid: full-cell Medium Grid to half-cell Medium Grid alternate Removed the rolling shoreline waves from rolling hills to remove the noise the waves created - remains for cliff shores List of 1 v 1 maps 1 v 1 Map Pool (New) List of 2 v 2 maps 2 v 2 Map Pool (New) List of 3 v 3 maps 3 v 3 Map Pool (New) List of 4 v 4 maps 4 v 4 Map Pool (New) List of FFA maps FFA Map Pool (New) Thanks, Matt Morris – Lead Designer of Classic GamesMatt Morris58 1d

Mar 12, 2016 [D II] Installers, Stand Alone Patches, and Update Troubleshooting Installers If you already own Diablo II, 1.14b installers for Mac and PC can be found here: https://us.battle.net/account/management/download/?show=classic Stand Alone Patches If you already have an older version of the game installed and are having trouble patching, go here for the stand alone patch: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/classic-game-patches Troubleshooting What if I am receiving errors attempting to patch or cannot complete patching? We recommend downloading and reinstalling with the new installers: https://us.battle.net/account/management/download/?show=classic What if I don't see installers on the page you linked? If you don't own the game, you will not see them there. Go here to purchase: http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/games/d2/ Is there a Mac patch? No, the changes we had to make from legacy OSX to 10.10 and 10.11 support were too great, there is no Mac patch, only the install linked above. My screen is off center when the game loads on Mac. We're working to fix this display issue, but in the meantime if you hit CMD + M twice on load, the game with center properly. My FPS seem low on PC, is there any type of workaround? Running in windowed mode will remove the FPS constraint. Right click on the game's shortcut and go to Properties. In the target line, add -w after the ". It should look similar to this: ...\Diablo II.exe" -w Gatekeeper is blocking my download.

Jun 12 [D II] How to use the ignorelist feature Looks like forums ate the last one while I was updating it. Added a few more strings in the past month. Do w/e you like. Updated Feb 6, 2017 Alright, we all probably know about /ignore or the squelch button in Diablo II. However in-game this is pretty ineffective because chat goes through the game servers not Battle.net. However patch 1.13d implemented an awesome new tool for ignoring spam. NOTE: this has some issues You CANNOT ignore entirely empty lines. The chat field does not require an actual message. This is a known issue. The filter is case sensitive, This means actually using the filter in-game is fairly useless. Nobody told you about this in-game. With that in mind, let's work around these issues! step 1: enter Diablo II and go to the chat lobby or join a game. Type /ignorepersist IF this says disabled, type it again to re-enable it. Next type /filtermsg foo If this says cannot add filter, skip this step. Now exit diablo II Go to my pastebin link LINK IS HERE: http://pastebin.com/qFzA5aY5 (this is a text pasting website) and copy the entire contents of the text box. Control + C copies text. Right click on your Diablo II shortcut, go to properties. On Windows XP click find target. On Windows Vista/7/8 it will say Open File Location. This will open your Diablo II folder. If /ignorepersist said message filter added in-game when you typed /filtermsg foo right click on the file named ignorelist and choose open with... Use notepad as the program. Copy the text of the pastebin link into this file, then create a blank line at the end of it by hitting enter after all the text. Control + V is paste text. IF /filtermsg foo could not add the filter, right click on a blank space and create a new text document. name it whatever you like. you can delete it later. Open this document with notepad if it does not already open and paste in the text creating the blank like at the end of the document and choose save as... from the file menu. from the dropdown box at the bottom choose ALL FILES, not text document. name your file ignorelist and NOT ignorelist.txt. save it. NOTE: On Windows 10 you probably need to save the file elsewhere as ignorelist.txt, rename it to ignorelist and then move it to your Diablo II directory. restart Diablo II. Note this file is optimized for USEast NL but works well on USWest and USEast all modes, though not quite as well. I update this file regularly be sure to check back every week or so for a new version of the paste. Happy gaming!Kaylin18 Jun 12

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! In the coming months we'll be shutting down the ancient, classic battle.net forums and migrating their traffic to this new location. We still have some work ahead of us, particularly in updating links that are scattered across our websites, so pardon the construction dust. 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 current title, please use the links below instead: - World of Warcraft - Hearthstone - Diablo III - Heroes of the Storm - Starcraft II 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: http://us.battle.net/en/community/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 (http://us.battle.net/en/community/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 wowreportedpost@blizzard.com 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

38m Perm Ban 10 Accs + LoD Key Grundlos! ich habs jetzt endlich verstanden, wie ich hier im Forum schreiben kann. Wollte mich gestern seit 5 Tagen einloggen und musste feststellen dass ALLE meine Accounts und einer meiner CD-Keys gebannt wurden. Zuerst dachte ich es liegtdaran, dass ich die sandbox nutzte, was aber quatsch ist, da man für sandbox use nicht gebannt wird. Der Support verweist ständig auf die Entwickler und kann mir keine Auskuft für den Grund der Sperrunng geben. Ich möchte wissen warum die Arbeit von fast 10 Jahren einfach so gesperrt wird. Ich hoffe es kan mir jemand helfen. Ich bin für fragen jeglicher Art online.KargerXY8 38m

3h [WC3] How to switch from Windowed Fullscreen to Native Fullscreen in 1.28 I have WC3 in full screen mode in 1920x1080 but its in windowed full screen mode. When I click alt + escape it doesn't take me to my desktop it makes the taskbar pop-up. according to patch notes: "Added view options: windowed fullscreen (default), windowed (-window), and native fullscreen (-nativefullscr)" We all have default windowed fullscreen now, but I want to go back to native full screen. There is no option to do that, so how do it do it?Freakface9912 3h

7h As Diablo II's life is coming to an end As Diablo II's life is coming to an end, this company should let us buy our Battle.net accounts from them...Yes, I will say it again, the company should convert all our Battle.net characters into single player characters, fix a price for each of our Battle.net accounts, and let us buy them. But please, make it so that we can buy it without a credit card, since I own none. I thought this may well be the best that Blizzard could offer for the funeral of Diablo II : the players who spent so much of themselves for many many years while building their characters can at last own them and have them on their local computer, and in the meanwhile Blizzard Entertainment makes money. Then, they can close the Battle.net servers for Diablo II, and won't be losing any more dollars by maintaining them in service for a handful of pure old school players drowning in a sea of scumbags, filthy vermins, ill-mannered folk and cheaters. Or would you rather take the other option : having all of your accounts deleted, Battle.net closed anyway (sooner or later it will happen), and all the energy and time you spent over the years gone into dust. If there is still hope in this rotten foredoomed world, I hope you will make the right decision for the players who have spent so much of themselves in this video game, maybe the greatest video game of all times.

14h [WC3] 1.28 General Open Thread Pete, I thought we were in April! Anyway, following the recent communication success between developers and community, I shall take the liberty of opening the questions round. - Could you extend the: "Fixed various bugs and exploits"? - What about the ETA and the objectives to address for the next patch, what do you have planned? Thanks!GhoST191 14h
14h [WC3] Newbie assisting in-game option hi all, I am a newbie of warcraft 3 that having a problem with my units. so, my units are keep suiciding. it occurs after they got hit by towers or ranged units, they starts chasing enemy till they dies. it really confusing me. I'm not even commanding them to chase or attack enemy. I know that you professional warcraft 3 players will say 'use Hold Potision' though I want my units to be smarter. if there is a in-game option that like 'Use Smarter Units' would help newbies like me. that smarter units might hold position by default, or might stop when the last command is attack move. additionally, might not obstruct allies that trying to run from enemy. I mean, if I command a unit to run when he is getting focused by enemies, then other my units should make a way to safe place for him instead of box him and letting him die. however, the smarter units might make a way for him automatically, to assists newbies' micro and APM.Dwq5 14h

17h D2 1.14d random crashes, not happening in 1.13d Hello Blizz. Since I updated D2 to 1.14d, I have been experiencing random crashes, usually ending with access violation errors. I treid reinstalling, it didn't help. I was playing an Amazon in Act 2. But then I tried downgrading to 1.13d, and guess what? No crashes. It seems it has something to do with the new "compatibility" fixes that were added in 1.14, and the lack of Video Test. Since no new content or gameplay changes were added in 1.14, I believe it has to be the new game EXE and DLLs that accompany it. The game still crashes when certain skills are used (Cloak of Shadows), but it doesn't crash randomly, for no apparent reason. I'm running D2 on Win7 x64, AMD FX-4130, 8GB RAM, Radeon HD7750 1GB.AKosir2 17h

1d Microdisconnects equals full disconnect in SC:R I live in a country where the internet is very bad. And, when I disconnect even a little (my friends doesn't notice I disconnect when we have a conversation on discord), the game is lost. If I remember correctly, in the original version (where you weren't connected to Blizzard Battle.net App), you still were able to rejoin the match in 30 seconds before someone pressed "Drop player". But now this isnt an option for me anymore. So its more or less impossible for me to play SC:R now. Anybody knows what I'm talking about or got any ideas how to fix it? Devs?sig1 1d
1d [D II] Small/Medium Update Ideas Like many in this community, I have been playing and loving this game for over 15 years. When a game still seems fun after so many years, it is pretty clear that the game has amazing replay value. One can try different builds, chars, equipment, and so forth to keep the adventure alive. Moreover, if we're being realistic, we might already know that D II may not have too many dedicated developers all these years later. A balance is probably being struck with all the other new games. That being said, I was increasingly optimistic when some patches were rolled out over the past 12 months. Of course, they were small, mostly aimed at compatibility with modern PCs, but I think it's the thought that counts. Perhaps there is a chance, albeit remote, that there could be some new content with a future patch. That is why I'm posting this; mostly for fun, but a small part of me hopes that a few things I bring up here will resonate with the greater D II audience, and relevant (future) developers. First let me say, I do not intend to speak for everyone, some people may feel no changes are needed. Others yet may find it heretical to change a classic game. I actually sympathize a good bit with these views and feel it is appropriate to clarify what I mean by "Update Ideas". With a game that has a following after all these years, I'm not expecting anyone to re-do the whole game or turn the game on its head with major changes. Instead, I believe it's best to keep the game largely as is. That being said, I believe that minor changes / content creation would serve as an exciting perk for the loyal D II users that stuck by this game for a decade and a half. So, without further ado, here are my top Update Ideas. 1. New Runewords: Why runewords? To my knowledge, one of the biggest reasons D II players did not get into D III as much was because there were no runewords. There were other reasons too, but it is safe to say runewords are one of D II's strong points, and I believe it's a classic case of too much is never enough. Patch 1.10 runewords changed the meta of D II rather substantially. IMHO, that is because so many of them were wayyy better than the previous meta builds with uniques and original runewords. For example, take the case of 1.11 runewords. They had a minimal impact on the D2 meta; in my view, this is because they were fairly modest additions to the game. There were no 400% defense/damage or other mind-blowing stats. It was just kind of a cool new niche for mid-tier or budget builds. For this reason, I think it would be interesting to see what other new niches might take shape from the introduction of new runewords. Here is what I mean. Take missile weapon runewords for instance. There are 8 total (6 from 1.10, 2 from original). Note that I am not counting "x socket weapons" that work with all weapons (botd bow, venom bow, ect). There is really only one class (amazon) that benefits from these runewords at the meta level. It's not that I feel that these 8 runewords over-saturate the bow weapon class, but rather the other weapon classes do not have an equivalent amount of diversity. I'm not entirely sure if this was intentional or not. There were plenty of powerful bows (wf, lycanders, eagle) before all the bells and whistles of the 1.10 bows. I think it would be great to let some weapon classes play catch-up. Here are a few: A. Orbs There are great unique orbs that many sorcs use as meta, but a runeword orb could create a cool alternative, depending on how powerful it was. At current with all of the *staves not orbs* restrictions, I'm pretty sure that the only runeword that can be made from an orb is "Strength", which has stats that are pretty much pointless for the orb class niche. At first I thought, making an orb runeword would be too OP, but then I remembered that the necro has "White" letting him stack wand innate magic bonuses with the magic bonuses of the runeword. I would argue that a reasonable balance could be struck with orbs in a similar manner to "white". B. Staves The good news is that staves aren't totally dead; people still use ondals for exp bonus and "Memory" for secondary precasting energy shield. However, I have seen almost no one use staves as their primary weapon for pvp or pvm. This is true even with Mang Song's teaching. This is just my personal opinion, but it just seems a little sad to see Walking Sticks, Stalagmites, Elder Staffs, Shillelaghs and Archon Staffs (not to mention their exceptional and normal equivalents) drop and always be seen as worthless or at best a precast item or a novelty keepsake. It would certainly be challenging to overcome the opportunity cost of using a shield (especially with spirit/phoneix), but maybe some more high end runewords for staves people would at least consider it. As it stands, hardly anyone is going to give up an Orb + "Spirit" shield for Mang Song's Teaching, let alone "Memory" or "Leaf". So, to reiterate, using a 2h weapon like a stave is really a big sacrifice for most builds and would merit some better stave runewords. Otherwise, we just have 15 weapons in the game that you can't do anything with late-game, unless you get insanely lucky with a good rare stave. C. Claws Aside from "Chaos", the claw class has limited runeword options. There is "Strength" and "Malice" for early game, but late game MA assassins could use some new runewords for their play style. As a matter of fact, these days it's rare to even see a MA assassin (at least on my realm anyway). I think a big part of that is because it's a challenging spec and the gear is a bit restricted. Both of these factors turn players away from specing MA. Not to mention "Chaos" has the notable +WW 0skill, which is very different than the charge/finishing move combo that MA used to be known for. I think it would be cool to make MA in the traditional (non WW sense) competitive with some other high end runewords. At the moment I can't quite think of the best way to do that, maybe someone out there has some ideas? Please share in the comments if you do. Also a claw runeword for trap assassins would be interesting too, because the meta at the moment is looking for the super hard-to-find magic claw: witch-hunter's claw of quickness. D. Necro Shrunken Heads These shields even at the elite level only have a maximum of 2 sockets. That means we can't hope for anything better than "Rhyme" or "Splendor". These would be nice for early game, but once we hit late game things look bleak for even bothering with these shields. It would be hard for runeword shrunken heads to compete with their unique counterparts, especially since 2 sockets excludes them from where most of the shield runeword action takes place ("Spirit", "Phoenix", ect). They have had a maximum of 2 sockets for 16 years now, so I doubt that will change any time soon. However, to me it would still make sense to try and include a high-end runeword for shrunken heads. Otherwise, we would just have Minion Skulls, Hellspawn Skulls, Overseer Skulls, Succubus Skulls and Bloodlord skulls that have no purpose in the late game (except maybe to be sold to a vendor). Maybe using rarer runes could justify the high-end stats. I was thinking: "Vex+Zod" could make for a cool runeword, on ethereal shrunken heads! This post went on a bit more than I anticipated. I will save the rest for a later date. If you're still trying to figure out the rhyme or reason for my suggestions, I can basically sum it up as follows: Let's introduce new runewords to encourage play style diversity. I've seen way more hammerdins than zealers, way more trap assassins than MA, way more ele druids than SS, and so forth. D II is 16 years old, it's not likely it will be rebalanced on the skill tree side, so it's also unlikely that we can encourage diversity this way. Instead, let's try adding a few simple new runewords to compliment the existing ecosystem of items and bring life to items and play styles that many meta-oriented players regard as weak or inferior.Inarius3 1d

1d Starcraft Remastered I was super excited about this. But it looks bad. Looks like a cartoon version of Starcraft... Can you just restore graphics to the old one since when I play OG Starcraft now the quality seems to have dropped from when I played 10 years ago? I understand in order to sell the remastered you want to make the OG look worse but the remastered version really looks bad. The shadows look separated from units. This game is supposed to be intense and exciting. I feel like I'm looking at another candy crush game.....(I dont play candy crush but I imagine it looks bubbly and gay like this game.)[gay as in jolly. War should not be jolly.] Anyway, that's my 2 cents. Seems a lot like you're trying to find a middle ground between SC and SC2(Maybe you're trying to convert SC players to SC2?). Won't happen for me cuz I don't like SC2. Looks bubbly and gay like SCR. K byeknobblez1 1d

1d Warcraft 4X So, as we know, Blizzard already develops and publishes multiple genres of games. (i.e. RTS, RPG, MMORPG, Online FPS, MOBA, and TCG) Starcraft, in particular, took the RTS genre by storm. It would be a shame for Blizzard to compete against their own game with a returning franchise. The proposal is for Warcraft to be redeveloped from the ground up; resetting the story and history of Warcraft from the beginning in the form of a 4X-Strategy. Not only would this grant Blizzard the ability to completely cover all of the land and lore introduced through hundreds of novels, comics, WoW itself, and the original trilogy, but also provide a new age of 4X-Strategy in which you receive a heavy helping of story; something that tends to waver in most 4X-Strategy games. Add in multiplayer, a push for 4X eSports, and you have a juggernaut waiting to happen.Eastpoint0 1d
1d Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness + Beyond Dark Portal Remastered Good day everyone that is reading this post. I am a big fan of warcraft and was that since i was first introduced to it by my father which favourite game was Warcraft 2 Tides of Darkness. I always had a love for all warcraft games from the RTS to the MMO which i play. I did saw as all of you the news of starcraft remastered edition. Do you think there would be possible for Blizzard to also make a remastered version of tides of darkness and beyond the dark portal? I know i personally would love that but what about you all? Maybe with enough discussion they will consider it. Have a good day further.Megamizator22 1d
