As you may have noticed, not a lot has changed over the past few months. We did gather feedback in a feedback thread last year in order to provide you with a better experience. The W3Arena staff members always want to provide the best experience possible for the community, even though the changes visible to most people have been far and few in between. As you know, we all do this in our free time. With that said, here is the next iteration of the "W3Arena Development Feedback" series.

Website related

  • focus on usability and readability
  • better backend for admins and content creators
  • improved replay filter system (e.g. filter for heroes used in a specific order, filter for matchups, filter for specific maps)
  • improved replay details view, providing almost all data the replay parser can extract
  • replay tagging system that allows users to tag replays and find replays by tags, for example ?rifle push? or ?fast expansion?
  • better management of user tasks via simplified control center
    • stream account setup to register your streams manually; allowing the W3Arena Twitch Bot to join your channel and your live stream to be displayed on our website
    • improved account status regarding mutes/bans
    • improved race selection for AT
    • better replay management tools that provide more options for you to administer your submitted replay collection

Warcraft related

  • fixing current map issues for an upcoming ladder reset
    • fix the team game disconnect bug
    • extensive testing of the new maps before ladder reset to avoid old bugs to persist and new bugs to show up in the future
  • more competitive maps
  • improved tracking for ladder games, mainly including map, races played and heroes used by players to allow better analysis of player performance per map and matchup
  • improved matchmaking and ladder rank meaningfulness

In terms of map testing we are going to set up a test bot that can be used by select community members in order to host games using the new map configuration. That way we can test the new map releases properly and you can host custom games as well. This topic will be dealt with in an upcoming news release that will provide more information.

Until then we encourage you to join in on an objective discussion about the details listed above in the forum thread.

Comment #4Tue May 09, 2017 20:45 pm
Do a weakly 2v2 auto-tour, like the actual 1v1 auto tour, would be awesome
Comment #5Tue May 09, 2017 20:53 pm
Will there be an update for the installer? It wants me to install WC3 1.26, or do I have the wrong installer?
Comment #6Tue May 09, 2017 21:01 pm

Comment #7Tue May 09, 2017 21:14 pm
Will you bring back the US bot? NA players have a hard time on germany host
Comment #8Tue May 09, 2017 21:29 pm
yay o/
Comment #9Tue May 09, 2017 21:56 pm
Thanks for updates. >improved account status regarding mutes/bans Why? You don't mute anyway. One person is violating flame-rule for years, reported multiple times, but still zero actions. And admin DIESELDOG is just making fun of me and other reporters when we provide new rule violation information. I would like to suggest to add something like /dnd with full incoming chat disable in-game.

took you 3/4 years to come up with this? new bnet patches about to come out, the timing couldn't be worse lol! but i am glad you finally figured out that the matchmaking system designed by Yosh, a 19% player, sucked ass congratulations !
Comment #14Wed May 10, 2017 13:14 pm
sNowBreeZe u better watch your mouth, who are you to judge Yosh who made all this possible in the first place? ungrateful rat. Yosh earns more respect than anyone else on w3a and he did his best he could in his position. I would like to see you build up something like this. Damn Fuffi.
Comment #15Wed May 10, 2017 14:33 pm
it's funny when it comes from someone who built his stats abusing the AT vs RT matchmaking flaws, but yeah keep on sucking an inactive guy's dick you damn moron! inb4 blizzard closes this illegal server

Comment #19Wed May 10, 2017 17:50 pm
#13 It took you 3/4 years to come up with exactly jack shit. Build your own fucking private server if you believe you can do it better

Comment #25Fri May 12, 2017 23:54 pm
but I agree with #9, more action is needed towards flaming kids
Comment #26Fri May 12, 2017 23:59 pm
#13 you should shut your mouth, no need to rage just because you are losing a lot
Comment #27Sat May 13, 2017 15:15 pm
the feature " if your opponents dont join the game,he will get a lose" should be removed, because its complete nonesense...why? 1.w3a joins the game automaticly... 2. it happens often, , that its not possible to join the game...and u will get a lose for a bug ... 3. why should someone search a game just not to join the game ?
Comment #28Sun Jul 09, 2017 03:34 am
I'm having problems installing the client for the first time. I looked for help but it didn't work. There was no w3arena.cfg file per this reddit note: Please help...
