No way they stop. Even if WC4 release tomorrow, they will still complain.

P.S. Thank you Blizzard for doing all this and keep the good work with WC3!

thats right we like to complain
give us the option to have hotkeys for items? so bad to use numpad or the mouse for items rofl.
I'll repeat my question just in case my last one won't be noticed cuz of the Sylvanas refference. Is there a date for the new patch release?Thank you
So cool to see blizzard is working hard on this beautiful game, but please take care about balance changes.... don't break the game buffing nerfing units too heavy x)
Hi Blizzard! I'm an Italian player of WCIII, I don't really play competitive much but I've noticed some tooltips are still the same in Italian, an example is the Paladin's Aura, which says that it grants 1.5 armor at lvl1, 3 armor at lvl2, and 4 armor at lvl3, but, in reality, it gives 4.5. It always bothered me, so I'd like to help with it.

I'd love to help with the Italian localization of the game, I've been playing since the original release and I love the game still now. <3
Thank you! When do I get the update?
How or where do I go to download the ptr?
Also I have to add a longer comment on Blizzard's work concerning Warcraft 3. I'm not greateful for any of the last patches Blizzard made because they didn't improve my gaming experience in any way. It's quite the opposite. At least 3-4 patches ruined Battle.net from crashes to not being able to open Battle.net without installing things to fix that issue. Thank you Blizzard for the amazing work you've done . Whatever you do people complain..but it's good that the selfish fans like us support you in the horrible things you're doing.We don't care that you destroyed the custom games everyone loves so much.We support you in everything and won't complain . Leaving aside the irony and the people who praise these last patches for no good reason, Warcraft 3 might be the best game ever invented,so I'm grateful for the past work of Blizzard but just not for the last patches made in the 2014-2018 period. I still would like to know the date when you will release the new patch.
Maphack is back - please emulate sc2 anti cheat pls!
Please, check, some cinematic spanish subtitles are missing... thanks!
If you acknowledge wand of lightning shield is a problem, why have it drop at all? Reducing the chances by 50% isn't going to make the human player who loses 10 peasants to it feel any better about it's drop rate.
FPS is over 200 now with -nativefullscr
