Disconnection from Servers Fixed to Provide Simultaneous Gameplay in Multiplayer Mode

By Daren Garius

On Friday, July 18, 2014

Warcraft is one of the most popular real-time strategy games ever released and its one of my favorites. Before I provide you with my review, let’s take a look at its history. Warcraft was released in 1994 with the subtitle, Orcs and Humans. It was succeeded by Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and later, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. It was the expansion pack of Reign of Chaos, subtitled The Frozen Throne (TFT) that gained the most popularity. Blizzard Entertainment, its developer and publisher, released updates for this expansion pack which included patch 1.25a, 1.25b and 1.26a in 2011. Patches for the TFT expansion were released to fix bugs, provide a balanced multiplayer mode, and extend its scripting system. In this particular patch we are discussing, aside from the general fixes, I also noticed a few significant repairs. TFT Patch 1.26a reverted the fix they implemented in 1.25b about a hero’s hex no longer extending the duration of its Metamorphosis mode. Speed boost and prolonged Chemical Rage effects were also removed. On the technical side, disconnections from Battle.net games during gameplay were fixed.

Pros

  • No longer disconnects from Battle.net
  • Provides general, but significant repairs

Cons

  • Requires Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos to be installed

Disconnection Problems with Battle.net Game Servers Repaired to Improve Gameplay

By Sam James

On Monday, July 13, 2015

Initially released in 1994, Warcraft is undoubtedly one of the most played RTS (real-time strategy) games today. Its introduction of its multiplayer mode was revolutionary in a sense that they made the game more fun to play if played with other players. This revolutionary move paved way for widespread LAN games today. Starting off with Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, it has developed into today’s Warcraft part three, subtitled as The Frozen Throne (TFT). Of all parts of the game, the third installment is the most popular especially with the popularity of Lord of the Rings, which looks almost like Warcraft. On the other hand, its popularity has not saved it from problems. Thankfully, its developer, Blizzard Entertainment, was able to release patches that included fixes to their game. In patch 1.26a of TFT, Blizzard was able to fix gameplay issues such as when a hero casts spells and it prolongs a hero’s speed boost and Metamorphosis mode. Most importantly, disconnections from Battle.net servers during gameplay were fixed.

Pros

  • No longer disconnects from game servers
  • Improved gameplay due to repairs applied

Cons

  • Requires patch 1.25b to be installed

Review

WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne Patch is a game utility in which you will find some new features as well as some fixes for minor bugs. Amongst the novelties of this patch you can find some new maps for playing in the multiplayer mode, map changes, and fixes that could ruin the game experience.

With this download you can be sure that the software will be ready to perform exactly as the developers intended. WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne has balanced some units in order to not grant too much power to units such as the Orc Blade master. There are also some changes for items, mostly in their duration. Blizzard has modified some cooldown durations (also abbreviated as CD, is the time that players have to wait after using a spell or ability and the possibility of using another one again) to balance the gameplay.

This latest update includes all the improvements that all the previous versions have, and it has also some fixes for the Internet multiplayer mode. Another important addition is that you can select the maximum FPS (frames per second) during the graphic adventure with just a single command in the game’s console.

The latest update for this game patch

As it has been mentioned above, the main changes have been made regarding the balance of the gameplay. For instance, concerning the human race, the Masonry Upgrade health boost has been reduced to 10%, Warden Shadow Strike mana cost has been increased to 75. Even the duration of the Druid of the Talon Faerie has been reduced.

As it has been previously read, some changes in the Orcs have been made. In respect of the items, the XP that the Tome of Experience gives has been reduced in 50 points, while the cost of the Ivory Tower has been increased to 40. The main objective of these latest changes is to balance the gameplay and make your experience more enjoyable.
