Wow, it is real now! Blizzard now officially rolled out the Warcraft 3 Patch 1.29 to the live servers!!!
Independent from the big changes, here is what I instantly notice as a Warcraft 3 player:
- There is like zero delay ingame!!!
- The screen resolution is more far away (more things on one screen), but it is good (not too far away).
- New Warcraft 3 maps!!!! Oh my god! Well I already know nearly all of them, they seem to be old maps from old patches, and in Wc3 1.29 they combined the best (most popular) maps! I really like that
- To the hero changes: Well I think this needs a bit time to feel the impact of the hero adjustments!

Warcraft 3 Patch 1.29 is live:
Here I am searching a 4on4 Random Team (RT) match. I really love Wc3 4on4 rt!
As you can see, the borders at the outside are black, and the player level & names are much smaller than before. (Because there is space for 24 players now).
When you enter a game, the black blocks are gone, and the game resolution perfectly fits to your screen. My Screen resolution is 16:10 (1920×1200) and I love it. In the corners you can see that Blizzard added some game ui interface frames, because of the longer menu elements. The good thing is, that Warcraft 3 is not scaled and stretched anymore. This presents the game as if it got better graphics than before! Thumbs up!
