W3Arena incompatible to 1.27

W3Arena ist not working with the patch 1.27a. Please don't update until we were able to handle the changes they made. This will be the case for the next few weeks.

If you have already patched, please use a version switcher or replay kit to go back to 1.26a

(How to patch back)

Comment #26Tue Mar 15, 2016 15:48 pm
At least I don't see any maphackers at the moment. o.O I don't think that was part of the update so... am i imagining things?
Comment #27Tue Mar 15, 2016 15:57 pm
But why this HUGE announcement video if this crappy patch is all there is? Blizzard were asking for a lot of dissapointed gamers with that anti climax. Personally, something like this was exactly what I expected. Yet they could have saved their hype video 'til a decent patch which works fluently and really would have excited the gaming community have been knocking on the doors..
Comment #28Tue Mar 15, 2016 16:32 pm
Wtf w3arena are u kidding us? xd my mother can faster up a new patch on server. GG

Is there a way to play on window mode on
Comment #32Tue Mar 15, 2016 17:31 pm
It seems that we need a new w3arena for MAC now!!!
Comment #33Tue Mar 15, 2016 17:37 pm Look at the crying cu*ts at d3 Scene LOL. Good thing we have w3arena so we don't get to play with the trash that ruined w3 battle net.
Comment #34Tue Mar 15, 2016 17:59 pm
actually blizzard said that they are adding some content in the following weeks - thats why it's called 1.27a, and not just 1.27 ... so in the following weeks, there will be another patch which has balance changes as well.
Comment #35Tue Mar 15, 2016 18:52 pm
That is not confirmed.
Comment #36Tue Mar 15, 2016 19:18 pm
It is actually
Comment #37Tue Mar 15, 2016 20:21 pm
Its confirmed, so just be patient. Fly100% also told, that blizzard spoke to different pro-players about the game balance ;)

Comment #52Wed Mar 16, 2016 20:16 pm
i cant manage it .. not with neos replaykit and olso not with .. ist not working for me R.I.P warcraft
Comment #53Wed Mar 16, 2016 22:46 pm
I downloaded the new 1.26-1.27 version switcher, and I extracted the zip file. I left TFT Version 1.26 and Version 1.27 as zip files (when extracting them, they disappear in the switch version tab and I believe they are meant to be zip files). So when I go to switch version and double click 1.26, I hit ok, and nothing happens. Then when I open wc3 through the version switcher, it opens version 1.27... any ideas on how to get this fixed?
Comment #54Wed Mar 16, 2016 22:47 pm
Pad, it would be better that you dont upgrade w3arena to 1.27 when I upgrade to 1.27 game doesnt start at al, firstly its showing me some critical errors and after I click ok its asking me for CD and there is no chance I can opet game again, cant even enter to menu On 1.26 everything is working perfect
Comment #55Wed Mar 16, 2016 22:56 pm
I didnt use version switcher You can also do it this way, download game.dll for wacraft 3 from and copy it to your w3 directory by replacing the old one. After that just download patch 1.26 and run it and you will have 1.26 version of w3 again
Comment #56Wed Mar 16, 2016 23:00 pm
Version Switcher - best way to roll back.
Comment #57Wed Mar 16, 2016 23:02 pm
the new version switcher does work, my idiotic self didn't run version switcher as admin. I added 1.26a, so the version switcher I have can go 1.26, 1.26a, and 1.27. Working so far!
Comment #58Thu Mar 17, 2016 07:58 am

Comment #78Sun Apr 10, 2016 10:30 am
Is there any news on when W3A will be working with 1.28? And soon with 1.27b?
Comment #79Wed Apr 13, 2016 12:24 pm
Hey I was wondering if someone could help me out. I downloaded the version switcher and I am able to go from 1.27 to 1.26 however when I use the switcher to run the game it is 1.26 but I can also use my other wc3 folder to open 1.27. When I try Wc3Arena it still says im not on 1.26 I think it is using my OTHER folder which is stuck on 1.27. Any tips to get the switcher to work for wc3arena instead of my other folder? Thanks
Comment #80Thu Sep 22, 2016 16:19 pm
I think i have this critical error. cant get in normal wc3 battlenet any more "tried to log into an invalid battlenet server" or so looks like i cant play anymore wich is rly disappointing. did unistall 2 times

Comment #82Fri Nov 04, 2016 02:54 am
