Warcraft 3 Reforged - Missed Opportunities

Warcraft 3 Reforged came out on January 28 and while it looks amazing it sucks that they didn't take this opportunity to make improvements to the based game. What improvements? I'm glad you asked!
  • Better A.I. - Back when the original Warcraft 3 came out I couldn't play online because I only had a 56k connection. This meant that I spent most of my time playing against computers. After a few rounds against them you come to learn their tricks and it's not really fun anymore. They did a good job with Starcraft 2 A.I. why not have used the opportunity to update the A.I. of Warcraft 3 during the reforging process?
  • Story Update - The story evolved quite a bit since World of Warcraft first came out which introduced a bunch of new characters some of which could of made their way to Warcraft 3 in the form of modified story. Think of Garrosh Hellscream, for example, there's no mention of him in the original trilogy (at least that I can remember).
  • World of Warcraft Tie In - Wouldn't it be nice to play World of Warcraft and come to a point where you can play a side quest in Warcraft 3 Reforged that is somehow tied in to World of Warcraft?
I've obviously only begun to re-experience Warcraft 3 Reforged and so far it's good. Beside a major graphical overall, as well as some quality of life changes and the fact that it's an online only game now, it's still the same Warcraft 3 of old.
