With Blizzard noting that this surprise update to the game is "the first of multiple updates coming this year for Warcraft III: Reforged". As a remaster of one of the most celebrated RTS games of all-time, Reforged launched to a lukewarm response from critics and some sizable backlash from fans due to it failing to live up to the promise of a worthy remaster.

Our review was a little kinder, in that playing through the campaign was still a blast - but it was hard not to overlook the lack of promised features, broken multiplayer, and some questionable visual upgrades. The last Patch proper for Warcraft III: Reforged was released in April of 2021, which beings us to today: and Patch 1.33.0.

Which brings Ranked Play, Leaderboards, and other stuff that was a part of Warcraft III prior to the Reforged launch. "It’s been some time since we’ve provided an update on Warcraft III: Reforged," writes Blizzard. "Many of you have asked for us to support some of the features which were a part of the original Warcraft III experience. We’re pleased to announce that our upcoming patch 1.33.0 will include Ranked Play, Player Profiles, Leaderboards, and a few additional updates."

What's even more interesting is that the post is signed "The Warcraft III Team" which implies that Blizzard has a team working on Warcraft III: Reforged again. The Classics team, which originally worked on this and the well received StarCraft remaster was disbanded after the launch of Reforged.

Here are the full Patch Notes - which are now live on the PTR.
