Blizzard Warcraft 3 Announcements 2016

Announcement from Blizzard in the Battle.net forums:

Today we will be deploying 1.27a for Warcraft III. As with Diablo II, this patch focuses on modern system compatibility. It’s exciting to bring some additional support to another core Blizzard game, and we thank you for your encouragement and patience as we continue working behind the scenes on these types of updates.

Please be aware that while we are working on a balance change and new map pool, that work is still in progress and is not part of this patch. We’ll have further details on that as development progresses.

The patch is live! What I would love too see soon, is a ladder reset too. I am happy a first step is done – I believe in Blizzard that they will go on and make Wacraft 3 better. Let’s wait for it! =)

GL & HF see you online!
Greetings, Kev
