    Cue moaning by some in the community that it should be offered for free to existing owners (that picked it up for £4 as a re-release). Good on them though, there's a market for re-masters (not just reboots) of classic games - I can think of plenty that I'd re-buy.

    Having never played it I'd be interested in getting this remaster.

    Only interesting if I can plan lan with no connection to them. I'm not interested in being tied to someone's servers that may die at any time. DRM free for me only. I skipped Diablo3 and I'll keep skipping their games until they stop that crap. Too many other games I can play DRM free at GOG.com etc FOREVER even if a company goes belly up.

    Whilst they MAY die at any time, given that I was playing Warcraft 3 online at the weekend which was released in 2002 and their main revenue stream is probably still WoW which is exclusively online, I'd say it's unlikely the servers will be going away any time soon.

    The mother of all strategy games in now free and remaster.
    You can't play multiplayer if you don't have a Wow account or Starcraft 2 etc
    but still totally worth it.
