4d [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 Morris67 4d
4d [War III] Map Pool Replacements Greetings Warchiefs, The most common thread in regards to the new map pool is the Warcraft III vanilla maps we selected.

Sep 2 [War III] 1.28.6 PTR [latest update] Hail Warchiefs, Warcraft III’s PTR is up and running – and we're already updating maps based on your feedback. Our sincere gratitude for your time and energy playing and offering feedback. We're still working through your suggestions; if you haven't seen your recommendations yet, keep an eye out for our next batch of updates! Windows https://battle.net/download/getInstallerForGame?os=win&locale=enUS&version=PTR&gameProgram=WARCRAFT_3 Mac https://battle.net/download/getInstallerForGame?os=mac&locale=enUS&version=PTR&gameProgram=WARCRAFT_3 Here's what we've got for your continued testing: (2)Terenas Stand LV Added unpathable terrain to the eastern Mercenary camp, so that both sides of the map have relatively the same amount of unpathable terrain. (2)Tirisfal Glades LV Opened a path through the middle of the map. Removed the +1 cliff level for each start location Removed the -1 cliff level for the northern Murloc creep camp next the players start location, so that both the north and south camp are similar. (2)The Two Rivers LV Tightened the choke point around the northern expansion - similar to the southern position. (2)Road to Stratholme LV Swapped the Mercenary camps with the Goblin Laboratories. (4V)1V1 Flood Plains LV Added some flair to the creep camps – attempt to bring life to the those points of interest (POI’s). (4)Bridge Too Near LV Opened the center of the map. Removed the Market place and Red creep camp; Added a Tavern in its place. Added upbuildable terrain around the bridges to help prevent blocking the bridges with structures. (8)Battle Ground LV Removed the +1 cliff level from the expansion goldmine between Purple and Blue start location. Adjusted all the expansion goldmines, so that there is more room to build Town Hall equivalent and defenses. Red start location no longer has two expansion goldmines pointing its way. The expansion between Red and Pink start locations now points towards pinks location. (8)Northshire LV Tucked the Goblin Laboratory and Mercenary camp buildings and creep off the main path. Now easier to move around without engaging them. While on the PTR - the Ladder Button, Automated Tournaments, and the web profile link from your profile page have been disabled. All PTR information - [url="https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20758576598"][/url] Again, thank you for your patience and your passion to make Warcraft III better.

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.

Aug 30 [D2] Common Sense Safety Tips Community, It's hard to fathom how so many people are confused over simple concepts of not supporting/using bots in any fashion. In light of recent ban waves I've noticed a few major things that are likely to land you an (8) code. Purchasing a name from a name botterConsider for a moment if you will... name botters sell you a name they've acquired and kept via bots. Then they post online to sell these names to their consumer, you. They almost always offer to, or even demand that they safely place the name on your account to ensure delivery while preventing intercept from other name botters. Doing so makes you vulnerable to a ban since your account is now associated with a botter doing activity against TOU on Battle.net. Here's a prime example of this ignorance in full swing: http://forums.d2jsp.org/topic.php?t=76824048&f=53 Using a loader such as D2Bot to play "manually"This seems insanely obvious to me, but some people don't understand why using a loader gets them banned. The loaders inject into the Diablo II client allowing you to do things such as run multiple copies, use mods, use version hacks, etc... They are not the same thing as using VM ware or multiple computers to run multiple copies of Diablo II, they are in fact 3rd party software and against TOU to use on Battle.net. This all ties into using map hack, missile detect, PvP hacks and more. Purchasing accountsAgain, you're purchasing accounts that were leveling via use of bots. Whether or not you yourself use cheats is irrelevant. The fact is that account was flagged for cheating and therefore banned. Also, account sharing and transfers/sales are against TOU, so any argument you make would be invalid to defend this practice. All of this also ties into sharing accounts with friends who could cheat and get you banned along with them. Never share your passwords! Using bugged, hacked, or otherwise illegitimate itemsI don't think Blizzard bans for this right now, but techincally the use of hybrid runewords, bugged items, and dupes is grounds for account closure. I'm willing to bet Blizzard would rather delete the items if found though than kill off your account. Discussing cash or other currency trades in game or on Battle.netSelf explanatory, you can't sell what you've earned on Battle.net. It's against TOU to profit off Diablo II in any fashion. It's simply a game you're allowed to play upon purchase. Hope this sheds more light into some extremely basic principals of not abusing a free web based gaming service like Battle.net. I'm sure the many of you simply don't care about the rules, and this message isn't for you. Regards, Some Classic Fanblizzfanboy10 Aug 30
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
27m Diablo 2 LoD still swarming with hackers/modders Soo it's 2017, now approaching 2018 and people are still allowed to hack/mod on diablo 2? What are you guys doing about it? I would LOVE to come back to the game for some good old duel games but to be honest all those hacks and mods tend to really ruin the fun for the legit players still around.MrEpic0 27m

11h ExaGear to run Diablo 2 on Android bannable? Currently, running Diablo 2 on Android requires a third-party "dsound.dll.so". Since it is for the purposes of emulation/running the game on more platforms, without purposely changing anything, it should be fine? I guess once Blizzard lets the game work on Android then we don't need it anymore. Thank you, Blizzard Staff. Source: https://forum.xda-developers.com/hp-touchpad/general/guide-how-to-play-fallout-1-2-android-t2939072 Update: I tried it and ExaGear did not work for me. It said there was an error, possibly caused by SystemSurvey.exe. The game crashed.Dakarnad2 11h

11h Diablo 2 HD remake Blizzard I would love a Diablo 2 remake and I think the community would too. Just some updated graphics and a bit of new content (items, runewords, maybe a new act or character class). You could probably make a pile of cash with a remake like that since diablo 2 is such a popular game and is still being played after 14 years and I believe you as a company love to make money (who doesn't?). And then there will be a great new diablo game out there instead of a reasonably good one. Don't get me wrong I like diablo 3 at least since reaper of souls and all the updates it was kinda boring at the release. but it just still doesn't come close to diablo 2. Oh yeah one more thing for a remake, make it so people can't bot as easily and if they do ban them.Fiet418 11h
11h Found a WC3 Battle Chest found at used bookstore Random question. I found a Battle Chest for War Craft 3 at a used bookstore and I REALLY want to buy it.

18h Europe Softcore No Ladder - Hybrid / Bugged items future? Hey Blizzard! Today I would like to ask a question that would affect to "Europe Softcore No Ladder", and that is the Hybrid / Bugged items. I am unsure if hybrid items are available in other realms, but as I do play in this one, I will put it as example. There is some uncertainty regarding those items, if they will dissapear (by some update, or clean up) or they will stay. Could you please try to be direct with us and tell us if you are ever planning to remove those items, or will you let them be around? :) Edit: I am talking such items as "Enigma of Duress" , "Spirit of Phoneix", "Bugged Belt" , "Bugged Tal", etc... :) just to be more specific. Thank you!vans1 18h
18h D2 Ladder Runewords in Single Player/Offline Hello guys! well.. I've been playing diablo 2 for quite a while now.. but recently i had to move and where I'm living at now, the latency i get from playing online it's so huge it gets unplayable.. I really want to play it again and Offline.. but i'd like to have the Ladder Runewords in the single player game.. Since Diablo has been running for quite a while now I think there is no problem for you guys to add these rune words to the offline gameplay. I really don't want to mod diablo And I don't even know if it is possible to do it in Macbook version of diablo, but it would be nice to have the ladder rune words in offline game.. Thanks again for your attention!Antonow14 18h

22h Running Glide with Diablo II Patch 1.14 It took me a little messing around to get it, but I got Glide working again on the new 1.14 patch. I use the wrapper from here: http://www.svenswrapper.de/english/ I initially had issues with crashing (on windows 10) and flickering (both windows 7/10). I had to fiddle with the options in the Glide wrapper to get it to work. Here's what I did to get it working on two different systems. The wrapper can be installed into the OS's system folder, although some would recommend copying it to the Diablo II folder. The wrapper does not modify the game, so I expect no worries about getting kicked for that (I haven't had any). It just translates 3dfx Glide to OpenGL, since Glide was originally based on OpenGL. The version 1.4e zip file will need to be downloaded and files extracted (system32 or diablo II). The "glide3x.dll" file will then to be replaced with the hotfix version from the homepage. Open the"glide-init.exe" file as Administrator to configure the wrapper. Things get a bit complicated from here. I will refer to the column of buttons under the "Main Menu" section as "tabs." The program defaults to Deutch (German?) as its language. Press the "English/Deutch" button on the left to switch to English if necessary. Click the "OpenGL-infos" button on the left. Next, click the "Query OpenGL-infos" button. You'll see a pulsing infinity symbol appear in the corner of your screen for a few seconds, just wait for it to go away. On the "settings" tab, It may be recommended to check the "captured mouse" option, but may not be necessary. On the "renderer" tab, Set the "texture-memory" to "64 MB". Set "buffer-texture-size" to "2048x2048" (May not be necessary). Check "32-bit rendering," "texture for videos," "bilinear filtering," and "shader-gamma." Ensure that the "Keep desktop Composition" box is NOT checked. On the "Extensions" tab, check the "WGL_ARB_render_texture" option. Click "test." You should see two horizontal lines each for all three primary colors (red, blue, and green), and a quit button. If it looks ok and you can see the mouse cursor, click on the quit button. Click the "Quit" button. ============================== Next step is to configure your Diablo II shortcut. Right-click the shortcut and select "Properties." On the "Shortcut" tab, at the end of the text in the "Target" box, type "-3dfx" without quotes. ("C:\...\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -3dfx) The next part is different. On the compatibility tab, you'll have to do one of two things: On windows Vista/7, select "Disable Desktop Composition" and that's it, click apply and you're good to go. (This works no problem on my Windows 7 machine. on Windows 10, Select run this program in compatibility mode for Windows Vista (Service Pack 2). I used this option on my Windows 10 laptop no issues, and there is no admin prompt. If it still doesn't work and you're not worried about non-admin users, select windows XP mode. Click Apply/Ok. Launch the game and enjoy. And I gotta say, the Glide mode still looks better than Direct3d, I wish they hadn't tried to force that on us. Suggestion: It would make sense to perhaps modify the Glide code to run as OpenGL in a later patch so wrappers won't be needed? I don't know if its possible. P.S. The "Gamma" and "Contrast" controls in the game work too.Greaper45 22h
1d Diablo 2 Moomoo meadows help Hi, so I was playing diablo 2 lord of destruction doing some cow runs and then a level 86 sorceress came into my game, killed the king, asked if he could just kill the king and left.

1d To WC3 Mac developers: full detailed log of 1.27 problems Hey guys, First of all thanks so much for updating WC3 for the recent Mac Os. This is not a rant at all, I am very happy that you released an update to such an old game. However, I am experiencing a number of serious issues, so here is the list. I am using OSX El Capitan 10.11.4 (the latest version). I have a fresh install, and all mac players I've talked to on ENTGaming are reporting the same issues. Here are the issues, in order of severity: -Disconnects. I play custom games, on ENTGaming, and when playing DotA I almost always disconnect suddenly with no warning (no lagscreen). Sometimes it's the first minute of the game, sometimes it's 50 mins in, sometimes never, but it's very rare. I also play Legion TD, another WC3 mod, and there I disconnect much less often. But this may be helpful: for all mac users (btw, I have noticed many people play on mac, I was very surprised), the bot writes this error, every few minutes (this doesn't lead to a disconnect): WARNING: Invalid action packet detected: (id=0x70, username=(and the bot writes username)) I have not tried ladder games but I've heard people are also having the same disconnect issues, what's more, nobody ever disconnects from BNet when being kicked from games. -I have a retina 13 inch macbook pro, so when i use the full resolution, the mouse moves very slowly. When I set the resolution to 1280x800 (AKA the standard resolution for a 13 inch), everything is fine. But when I use the full retina resolution, which is 4x higher, AKA 2560x1600, the mouse moves 4x slower, and it's extremely annoying. Even when setting mouse to max speed, it's still moving super slow. Both these issues make the game very hard to use and are extremely annoying :(. -There is one more issue, but it's not such a big deal. This issue was present on earlier versions on OSX, I remember having it on OSX Leopard. The gamma correction setting is canceled and resets to default when minimizing WC3, we have to re-set it every time we go back in the game. The setting is saved, but not applied when switching to desktop and coming back. Overall, the standard gamma setting is also too low, WC3 has always been too dark by default on OSX, unlike on Windows. Thanks a lot, I hope you can find fixes for the 2 first issues in 1.27b, it would really be awesome and mean a lot to us faithful Blizzard games users. I used to be a top-ladder player back in the day, and it would be awesome to be able to play WC3 again on my Mac, since I don't have space to install bootcamp. Keeping Mac players is important since they don't hack. Kind regards, LifeBlinK7 1d
1d D2 Typing Chinese in game frequently ban Typing Chinese about 3 times and u will get a temporary ban (can't speak in game), but typing English is no problem, even 5~6 sentences. I just using simple words in game, and the speed of typing Chinese is slower than English. Sometimes when I join a new game, the 1st sentence just sent, and congratulation! ban! why??? I want to post on Blizzard Chinese forum, but there're always 404 when I post a new topic. Plz help to solve this problem, not only me have this problem, thx!Icenight5 1d

2d Where will this end? So, Diablo2-team. Do you want people to quit playing your game? Many players want diabloruns and baalruns to exp in. Idk how it bothers legit players. If they dont like bots or stuff, just keep distance. But to those who wish Yiupdia- running. So they can get easy exp, and easy free loot. I never ran of own profit, only to keep the striving community alive with what I can. But now I am banned, and tons of people want my run back. So, simple question: Are you intentionally killing the game? Because these "upgrades" doesnt only hurt bots, but also legit players. I am trying to play legit now, but I get "Server down" when trying to create and join game. And I'm not the only one, and its not just botters. So where will this end? How many players have to quit diablo 2 before you are satisfied?Yiup58 2d
2d Downgrade to 1.13d WARNING - this erases all of your character files Hi everyone! I normally play over TCP/IP using glide and I accidentally clicked on battlenet, forcing my game to patch to 1.14. Without glide, the game is virtually unplayable for my summon necro, getting 2-5 fps during battles. I want to downgrade to 1.13d while 1.14 is being sorted out. However, the video test file disappeared, so using previous guides for downgrading from 1.13d to 1.13c (like this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/slashdiablo/comments/o4h3k/how_to_downgrade_from_113d_to_113c_without) won't work. Has anyone figured out how to downgrade from 1.14 to 1.13d without reinstalling? Thanks!BadCompany9 2d
2d Diablo 2 LoD Source Code when ?! Do you guys could please upload us the "solution" on github or something ? It's been month/years we modded this game and since it's bull!@#$ due to the unability to have all "functions/data/info" properly, i mean reversing will never be 100% accurate and there is a big bunch of unknown thing, me and a friend always wanted to create an act 6 and couldn't, as well with creating a new system of quest/pvp. I don't understand why da hell you still keep the source code private, Look ID Software released each time the source code of DOOM so why you guys always keep all private and specialy Diablo 2... You did nothing since the old years (re-creating the entire games in terms of graphics) you totally create no new adventure/act for diablo 2 or anything else, If you would mind upload THAT AWESOME GAME SOURCE CODE, then maybe we could see A LOT of great features and maybe port the game on Mobile, while making a server-side playable server (unlike PVPGN which sux) due to the bad networking code, and other exploitable "dead packet". I expect a troll response from blizzard developer from the Classic Area, It's sure you guys don't care because you just go in the office open VisualStudio and have fun reading all of that source code =D. Excuse me to say but if the reason to keep it private it's due to the Battle.Net source code it's completly retarded, we know how Aurora/Pegasus work, this apply to heroes of the storm as well, You seriously need to share a bit, Diablo 2 need a new adventure, and need to be freely publicly available to be fully modified. Or if you guys doesn't want to release the source code as a solution, oh well, just upload your .pdb for the dll's and all, i will have month to re-translate/wrote the source code myself. ~Cheer Gheed's Fortune !Nightshades9 2d
2d Warcraft II should be available for download I believe that Warcraft II should be available for download via battle.net app or from the battle.net website. I don't understand why the other classic games are represented here on battle.net and not Warcraft II. Warcraft was the brand that started blizzard and yet it's conspicuously absent. I have purchased the battle.net version and would like to add my game key to my account so that I don't have to purchase the game all over again. That is the only way I would support it. Please include the Warcraft II strategy game client download!Dakari59 2d

4d Diablo II: LOD ESCNL Messaging Issue/Question? Hey everyone, Thanks for taking a look at this post, I have an issue when I'm in-game regarding when I type something out in chat. After I send a message out, I cannot see the message. After testing a few different scenarios, I discovered that other people in the game can see the message. TLDR; Can't see what I type in-game but other people can see it, message doesn't show when I press 'M' in-game. Thanks again everyone, Kevpatriarch1 4d

4d [WC3] Roadmap & information Since a few months we've been receiving news about patches and changes to the game. This is great for a game that is more than 10 years old but there is still a lot to do. Also, it's been a while since the last communication between Blizzard classic team and the players and we don't really know what's next. A lot of questions might raise up now after such inactivity time: - What is your next step towards the future of the game? - We were told about a lot of things being fixed during these patches but only a few were addressed. Are CRITICAL issues like maphackers going to be solved any soon? - Is there going to be a remaster? - Why is the new chat protocol in stand by? I'm still waiting for my API key even though the dev said he would send a bunch of them (never happened). That's all, Regards. P.s: there are still a lot of players that cannot login to Battle.net after the last changes.GhoST6 4d

5d [D2] Mac version doesn't seem to work on OS X 10.12 I purchased a copy of both D2 and LoD today and I've been able to play on OS X 10.10 so I'm very happy with that, though I'd like to be able to play it on my usual session (on my other drive) which is 10.12 (Sierra). When I try launching it after the D2 installer and patch it works, same after I upgrade to LoD, but when I patch LoD by trying to connect to battle.net it restarts and bounces forever. Tried to reinstall it and it fails the same. The same version works on 10.10. I'm trying to reinstall it with an other language selected but I'd like to know if this is a well known problem since the compatibility doesn't mention 10.12 but only both previous versions. Thanks!Glabouni10 5d
