Warcraft III Patch Plans
7:51 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Blizzard has recently announced an upcoming patch for its popular RTS Warcraft III and its expansion, The Frozen Throne. Labeled as version 1.15, the patch adds a large number of fixes and balance changes to the overall game.

Also included in the patch will be the Goblin Tinker, a new neutral Hero players can hire. Some of the other listed features are as follows:

- The matchmaking system has been significantly updated. New accounts should more quickly begin playing against opponents of equivalent skill level.
- Clan ladders are now functional. Games against ranked players will now contribute to your clan's ranking on the ladder.
- Clan information is now displayed in your player profile, including your clan name, tag, ladder ranking, and more.
- Display of channel moderators has changed.
- Ladder information is now more clearly separated in your user profile.
- Free For All (FFA) games are now anonymous. Account names will no longer be displayed to other participants. Other players will be displayed as "Player X", where X is the number of the player in the game.
- Added an on/off button for the "Alt" formation toggle functionality to the Options --> Gameplay menu. The option is "On" by default.
A complete listing of the upcoming changes, including world editor improvements, map additions, and race tweaks, can be found at Mojo StormStout's Warcraft III Strategy Guide.
