EVERYTHING ABOUT THE NEW PATCH!
Ladieeees and Gentlemeeeeeeeen, Blizzard pronounced Warcraft 3 Patch 1.30!
Yes, it is real, yes I also jumped around like a little kid!
Oh my freaking god, we are so glad that this is happening!
The Blizzard Senior Producer Pete Stilwell posted the news into the Warcraft Blizzard forums and unleashed the news to the world! It is really surprising that the patch is so big, the changes will have a high impact on the game and the balancing! The balancing has more an impact for the high level players of warcraft 3 and of course for 1on1 matchups. Battle.net RT matches will not be affected too hard.
And what we all know: This could be just a new step into the direction of an ultimate Warcraft 3 “Remastered”…
The patch now brings mixed feelings for us:
My first impression is of course beeing extremly happy, fanatic and euphoric about any new patch for the best game in the world!
On the second look, some changes feel a bit extreme – but hey let’s have closer look on all changes!
What is new in Warcraft 3 Patch 1.30?
Here is a quick Summary:
- Big Balance Changes (Heroes, Units, Buildings & Items) SUPERCOOL

1. The Warcraft 3 Ladder and Tournament Website is working again!
Finally the ladder and tournament pages are fixed! This was really annoying:
My main reason browsing the site is definetly when I take part in tournaments. Because only on the Warcraft 3 official tournament page I can see, if I reach the top 16 for the finals or not.
The site was totally broken, it is very nice that this got fixed!

Warcraft 3 Patch 1.30 Gameplay effects
What we can expect:
- In general: The dispell got nerfed, this means summons are much stronger now and it is possible to play better summon strategies.
- Undead: Undeads will play more Necrolytes and less Destroyers.
- Human: Humans got a bit nerfed (Mortar, Tanks, Brilliance Aura) but the Water Elements got stronger!
- Orc: Orcs now have a better time defending their base and we could see more shamans!
- Nightelf: Nightelves have a bit more tatical possibilities now: Mountain Giants, Huntresses, Hyppos and Ancient Protectors are better now!
- Neutrals: Alchemist got nerfed, but this was necessary! Well, neutral Heroes will be played more and more, since they are equal now…
That’s it. I reall love that patch!
