Warcraft III 1.15 Patch Released
7:47 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

The latest patch for Blizzard's hit real-time strategy game, Warcraft III is now available. In addition to making the usual bug fixes and balance changes, it also adds a number of new features to both the game itself and the world editor.

Here are some of the new features:

# A new Neutral Hero, the Goblin Tinker, has been added to the game. For further information on this strange new Hero and a listing of his abilities, visit .
# 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 and player levels 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.
# Added a "Worker Selection" button that appears beneath the construction progress indicator for Night Elf and Orc buildings. This allows Orc and Night Elf players to re-select workers that are currently constructing a building and give them additional way-pointed orders.
# Added the ability for users to double-click replay files (*.w3g files) from system directories. Doing so will automatically launch the game and load the appropriate replay.
# Buff and debuff icons (not including auras) now flash when their duration has 10 or fewer seconds remaining.
# Buff icons will display in the tooltip when a group-selected unit is highlighted in the info panel.
