Was hoping to see a zoom out that went out further than the original. On a 4K, the zoom out should let me see at least a huge area of the map.

Yeah so in short, I'm probably not going to ask for a refund because who knows, maybe Blizzard actually gets their development back involved with this to fix this disaster.

But, please, STOP hoping, because thats how they get you all the time. Blizzard just exploits the emotional connection between their fans and the company name to maximize profits. Like every major does. Blizzard now is like every other shit major publisher. The adaption is finished, the caterpillar has finally hatched.
It's because all of the competent devs left at Blizzard are busy putting their heart and souls into Diablo 4.
One can hope.

My understanding is that if you are a Warcraft 3 vet, the servers are being shut down and you have to play this POS going forward.
edit- noticed some others also pointed this out. This is the true crime here.
Agreed. I bought the original games. I haven't played them for awhile so I don't know how much truth there is to this claim. But if it's true it's one of the most disrespectful aspects of the new release.
EDIT: It looks like you can still play your original Warcraft III games online if you only update your installed version to a specific patch version.
So, all is not lost quite yet.

If your plan was to piss off all the people who said they loved Warcraft III -- you would be hard pressed to do better than they accomplished.

I found these via Reddit. The comparison video is pretty telling.

This wasn't news to anyone who was paying any attention whatsoever. The forums were a riot during the entire beta process, people were cancelling preorders left and right. I can't believe how many people buy stuff then complain about it immediately afterwards. Do a bare modicum of research before buying something and you will save yourself a lot of grief in life.

I'm going to guess that a lot of the user reviews are by people who didn't even buy Reforged. Whether you bought it or not, apparently original WC3 was automatically downgraded to have many of the changes Reforged made to the interface and functionality. Most shocking is that custom campaigns just don't work anymore. There's many a reddit post on it. This might be avoided if you run the OG WC3 outside of the launcher I guess, if that's even possible.
