Sorry, to everybody, i got the link from another site and only downloaded it but don't tested in before posting. Shame is on me.
I was exited too, since my original Game CD's are unplayable after all the years.
Be ashured I am disapointed as you all who fell for it.
I removed the [FREE] as soon as I got on my computer today.
Again I am so sorry for this mistake.

that is quite interesting! Warcraft 3 was my favourite back in the day!
Edit: Yikes didn't check by downloading, rip not free
Doesnt the installers ask for a cd key?
Reinstalled Diablo 2 the other day and had to input my cd keys.
Yep it asks for cd key, just tried it myself.
Yep. This won't give the game free.
Ehrm, its just a installer, without cdkey...
Didn't they disable the original Warcraft 3 after the release of the reforged? I had the box version and had it linked with my account but I haven't tried to download it in years.
Yes. It's 30Gb now.
The installer makes it seem like it's Warcraft 3 Reforged, do you know what happens if I install it? Can I access the original games?
No. The original is gone. You can only play it from the original CDs now.
I am gonna assume that even if I install it from the so called 'classic games' from Blizz (the one that has 30gb installer, I am gonna get the Reforged version which I won't be able to play since I have not purchased it, correct? Sorry for swamping you with questions.
Funny thing, if you had the original in your account you can play as reforged but still get banners to buy the WC3 Reforged.
Oh, that's interesting, had no idea. Guess I am gonna give it a try then I guess, though the reviews back when it released did not exactly sell me on it. Thanks for letting me know!
The launch version was very bugged and had a lot of player disconnection when playing mp. Lots of lags with 8x8, 12x12.
I was mainly interest in replaying the campaign, heard there were some balance issues. I am gonna give it a try either way, it's a pleasant surprise that I actually can. I was on the verge of buying it couple of times already, but recently I haven't felt like supporting Activision-Blizzard. Wonder if they would actually let me buy it when I already have the 'right' to play it.
I hope you enjoy it, maybe they patched the issues the game had.
Just tried playing the first mission, gotta say that after playing AoE 2 Definitive, the graphics are unimpressive but I guess it still looks a bit more polished then the originals and the game play and story are as great as ever, so it's worth a playthrough. Shame they could not do as good a job as the other guys did with AoE, considering their asking price.One more thank you is in order, if it was not for you I wouldn't have known to try it since in battle.net it was only giving me an option to purchase the game, not to install it.
Don't mention it! =]
I find pretty scummy the way they replaced the classic WC3 and still try to make us buy the Reforged.
It still makes me hella mad. I google if there's a workaround for this crap almost every month, cause we used to play old WC3 maps with a friend, and now we have to play this shitty re-make instead. That's not the game I paid for back in early 2000s
The only way I think is installing from the CDs and update to the last patch before Reforged. Then use an app like Hamachi to play LAN with friends since it won't have online features anymore.
That's what we used to do, but I don't have those CDs anymore. Also I don't have a disc drive :D
Thing is, you'd need to find patches manually and install them offline, cause included auto-update tries to upgrade to reforged, at least that's what happened to me back when it came out
Yes, you have to do things manually or be forced to have Reforged. Maybe there is a backup of the old installer out there.
I made sure to download the installers before they were removed. :)
no account needed... to download the installer
no account needed... to download the installer
Wish I had read this first.
just entered in my blizzard account after like ages and discovered that my old starcraft is gone puff! yikes!! :/
Yeah, it does not show mine either, guess because of the move to free to play. Still kinda weird to remove the license completely.
This comment was deleted 1 month ago.
I think if you login to the website, the license is still shown there alongside a download link. So it was just removed from the Blizzard client.
That obviously was necessary because the games you own are not as important as the games they want to sell you (I'm really annoyed by having to see games like WoW, COD, Destiny etc in my "Blizzard Library" in the same way as my owned games. I want to hide that shit badly.
I don't actually see it in my game lincenses. There is just classic Wacraft 3 and Frozen Throne. Starcraft is gone. :/
E: Dunno if there is any difference between the free to play version and the now gone original. I would hope there is none, since they went ahead and removed it from my account.
Wait, I'm confused... So the cops knew that internal affairs were setting them up?
Is this permanently free?
If you get your hands on a CDkey for free first, then yes.
Can't install something about scripts
Did it, and the software exit
Edit: tried again and is downloading now
Well, it was pointless anyway. It requires a CDkey
Yeah was confused because still saw a price tag for it on Blizzard
Yep, I was fooled. Glad I am not the only one!
Downloaded the lot. Annoying that you have to download downloaders for Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3. And you need a key for Diablo 2, so far.
As for missing titles, quick reminder that Diablo 1 and Warcraft 1 and 2 are on GOG. No keys or DRM there.
Well, thank god Rock N' Roll Racing is still playable in the year 2020. If that game were to disappear I would almost certainly resort to cannibalism, I tell ya what.
So... not free.
So why is this tagged as free if it needs cd-keys?
These aren't free, they're just the digital download versions of the CD installers for people who bought the original disc version, but can't use the CD's anymore. You still need an actual serial key to play it.
Looks like some kid found out about the installers webpage and thought they were free to play. Nothing to see here
It's not free. You still need to buy the game
You are lawyer... i mean liar.
Ain't that the same thing?
It's about comedy with Jim Carrey "Liar Liar" =)
Still on my "movies to watch" list xD
Op really needs to change the title of this so people don't waste their time
plz change misleading title @dergelbesack
Not just the title though, the post is entirely wrong.
i wonder if blizzard ever gonna give out anything.
Blackthorne, Rock N Roll Racing, The Lost Vikings, Starcraft
oh really? how do you even download them?
For Starcraft with the Battlenet client, for others there were on the website in 2014/2015
they gave multiple SC2 chapters
I don't trust like that.
need cd key, not free
Its not free.
so why this post is still alive saying diablo 2 is free?
