Blizzard revives Battle.net and admits it made a mistake with rebranding

At the moment it seems that Blizzard is giving all of their franchises some love, save for the Warcraft franchise which seems to have been largely untouched, or at least until more recently when Blizzard announced on the forums that Warcraft 3 will finally be getting its own PTR, and that they will be testing out some multiplayer changes.According to Blizzard, “Warcraft III’s first official PTR lives. Join us on the field of battle as we test the new Map Pools for 1’s, 2’s, 3’s, 4’s and Free-for-All.” Based on the changelog it doesn’t seem like these changes will be particularly groundbreaking or will impact the game too greatly, but for those who still enjoy the game, this could be a much-welcome breath of fresh air.We’re not sure if this is the extent of attention that Blizzard will be paying to the game. After all we suppose in a way World of Warcraft is kind of like an extension of the Warcraft franchise, not to mention that even 10 years later is still very much a cash cow.
