Warcraft 3: Reforged Bug Boots Players Into Premature Defeat

Warcraft III: Reforged, a remake of the iconic Warcraft III launched Wednesday to the delight of longtime fans, but a mystery bug has cropped up that may put a damper on the celebratory mood.

While the issue does not appear to have spread widely, there are several reports on Twitter of players being booted into the defeat screen while attempting to access the main campaign, even as early as the prologue. When players attempt to enter the campaign, they’re met with only an instant ‘DEFEAT’ screen, and can’t proceed further.

Further reports have also been found on Twitter, where players claim the bug is making it impossible for them to play the game.

It appears that this ‘defeat’ bug is also not the only problem plaguing the launch of Warcraft III: Reforged with players also citing issues accessing the server, awful cinematics, players being unable to join games and supposed broken promises over what would be included in the game.

While these issues continue to impact the launch of the game, not all players are experiencing the same bugs, so it’s currently unknown how widespread the problems really are. For those trying to access the server now, you might want to wait a while for any late bug fixes or updates to come through. There’s still a chance Warcraft III: Reforged‘s rocky launch will soon be smoothed over.
