I worry for Arthas' voice.

Eh, I'm split about it. The game is fine as it is. The SC2 models look great, but who knows what else they could change. Or even re-dub. That would be the biggest offender.

I worry that a WC3 remake would rewrite the characters to be more in line with their later portrayals. Like Arthas being how he is in Wrath of the Lich King and Rise of the Lich King (not a loyal henchman to Ner'zhul, second-guessing and/or getting blue about so many of his actions from Stratholme onward).

Well, this is certainly a possibility, although...so what? I would still like to see this remake, as it is a win win situation. Either its characterization/writing is bad and we still have old games, or it is good and we can enjoy it. There is no bad side to this.

Yes, Blizzard, retcon Warcraft III with all of your stupidity and your journey to the dark side will be complete.

We can always pretend it never happened.

We have practice in that anyway.

I'm surprised this new hasn't been picked up anywhere else yet. I would think at least there would be some threads on MMO-Champion by now.

As long as it has a map editor, I'm happy.

Please... I-I don't dare get my hopes up for this. Mainly because it's almost 100% guaranteed that Blizzard will make all the wrong moves (retcon THE SHIT out of everything to be in-line with WoW's lore, fuck up the story even more, change character personalities, re-record voiceovers (Tyrande "MUTHAR MOON" Whisperwind *cringe*) etc. etc.) instead of all the righ ones (improved gameplay and interface, additional features for both single and multiplayer play) with a remake.

So I'm really really REALLY skeptical about such a project assuming one is even in the works (Can some Chinese site be trusted? Are their sources reliable?). We'll live and see, i guess.

To be honest, I would support rewriting WC3 if it was part of one major reboot for the series that Metzen and Co. aren't involved in any way that deals with the setting and what happens in it.

Like Garithos, he's too much of an excuse to get the Blood Elves to leave the Alliance. He's one case I would support cutting or rewriting.

But Garithos is beloved!?!

I'd love some bonus Alliance missions with Alexandros Mograine and the future Scarlet Crusaders.

Why would they change the story?

Most games when they go HD...go HD.

That's about it.

If it's half as bad as SC2's, nope.

I don't understand why you guys even consider the change in story, that seems like a hassle. At most, aside from mechanics/gameplay tweaking and higher bit-rate soundfiles and obviously New models, there's no point in changing anything else, that seems like a waste of time all things considered.

I have faith in Blizzard's laziness and cheapness to not change the story.

Fun fact. Raszagal never existed in Starcraft map editor as a unit. Her only appearance in the in game cutscene was her portrait overriding a regular dark templar unit.

What are the odds of people who purchased WCIII getting it for free or a reduced price?

I'd be upset to see that thirty or so bucks go down the drain.
