When WarCraft III launched back in 2002 I was hooked. I played a ton of WarCraft II and as a fan I was really excited to play the next installment and WarCraft III's focus on heroes, amazing 3D graphics and the story made it one of my most played RTS's of that era. I believe WarCraft III is an important game and since many have been getting the remastered treatment it seems like Blizzard might agree.

"Warcraft III's PTR is back and ready for your scrutiny. Join us in testing widescreen support, hero balance changes, and updates to Map Pools for 1's, 2's, 3's, 4's and Free-for-All. We've also added some experimental modes like 24 player support for custom games. "

Getting widescreen support in WarCraft III is a great addition as the it natively only supports 4x3. Many people seem to think that these new rounds of updates coupled with the special WarCraft III invitational tournament next month mean that Blizzard is revving up to give it the StarCraft Remastered treatment. This certainly might suggest it and if that's the case them i'm in because this game is well deserving of one and it might give gamers that didn't play it originally another chance to do so.

I've had and played the first two Warcraft games, but somehow missed the third. I still have a demo of it on my PC. Giving the game the remastered treatment certainly captures my interest.

Agreed. The cool part about the demo is that it’s a intro to the WarCraft III game full voice acted that wasn’t originally in the game. In a later update they brought it to the game but w/o the voice acting. Hopefully with some updates they fix that because it was a cool way to do a demo.

Whoa really? So it was like a prologue instead of a demo in a way. That's awesome.
