I'm legit surprised they aren't doing a WoW pet cross promotion.
I don't remember paying full price for SC remaster. this seems a bit of an ask for what is basically the same thing (HD upgrade and bnet integration)oh well I'm sure it will go on discount or just have to farm gold in WoW and convert it lol
I wish there was a discount for those of us that have the original D2 connected to our Battle.net accounts.
Nothing for WoW included? =( Guess I will wait to buy it then, since there is no bonus for the game I am currently playing
soooo no love to the ones that have already spent way too much money on Blizzard games... guess i will wait for D4, when ever that will "ever" come out
Honestly the character models look really wonky, I mean I am still going to wait and see but they look pretty terrible tbh they sorta have that thing like WC3 Reforged going on where it looks like a mobile game but on a high resolution screen.They just look really unattractive too, I don't rly mean in terms of '' they're not hot '' but rather that the original had a sleeker aesthetic that was a bit borderline on the cartoony side.The new models look like they tried to make them look photorealistic but they didn't go far enough so they look cheap and too rough.D2 is one of my favorite games of all time so I have pretty high standards for it, not very happy either with how they're changing designs so much.The characters also just look like totally different people altogether, when I look at them I don't see the D2 characters at all.
Let's not make the same mistake as W3 Reforged and wait till the game is out before buying, seriously I don't see the point of pre-order for this, it's not like they gonna run out of copy to download when it launch. And all the special editions thing are still gonna be available on launch too!
Given that they mentioned specifically "giving you an experience like StarCraft: Remastered" and made NO mention of Warcraft III: Reforged... that seems to be that they KNOW they cannot screw with this, nor can they outsource it. They ruined the goodwill.Also, everyone complaining about price: This is only 2/3 the price of a normal game. It still costs to develop remasters. It is definitely pricier than StarCraft: Remastered though... A significantly more expensive Remaster. That may be down to the sheer volume of art assets to work on, additional features, etc. Hard to say right now.Best thing everyone can do is get into the technical alpha, and whatever feels wrong, off, etc., dump TONS of feedback on them. Make it heard and known. Don't just bemoan it on fansites.Without question, the pre-orders need to be low. We, as Blizzard Games fans, have been burned once by the last remaster.Also, if they make this a "forced upgrade" to legacy Diablo II owners... that needs to be CUT OFF before launch. That was one of the worst parts of WC3:R. They cannot be removing the function of the legacy version of their game, even if they decide to end Battle.net support for it, do not change the game to match the new version, without the new features. Especially because Diablo II had an incredibly robust modding scene. It would literally lead to even more rampant pirated downloads of "legacy" Diablo II, just for people wanting to mod it.
Gold token price in wow spiking because of this.
Seems like the whole entertainment industry is recycling the old because they have run out of interesting ideas.
Someone needs to tell Blizzard that $40 isn't equal to €40...I really hate when they make EU prices higher for no reason.Also $40... seriously... make it $20 geez. It's an old game, no matter how good it is it's way too old for Blizzard to ask $40.Fairly disappointed with Blizzard pricing and decisions this BlizzCon.
Please don't be another Warforged Fiasco where they merge the old and new together and force you to play through the "new" version.
Usually I am supportive of game studios like Blizzard teams, despite questionable corporate decisions from the suits above.However I will not pre-order this time for Diablo 2 Resurrected, until there is news about future updates for WarCraft 3 Reforged.I hope Vicarius Visions is working on it, too.I also understand that it is yet too early for news/updates on WC3R, since Team 1 was dissolved October last year.But I expect at least some life signs before the release of D2R.
They should start a new (sister) company Blizzard: Recycled, and transfer all the titles there
