Warcraft III bombed on Twitch after poor reviews from fans and critics

The release of Warcraft III: Reforged last week was hyped and poised to be a boon for content creators who veer toward strategy-based games. But following a slew of less than stellar reviews the game saw weak viewership in its first few days on Twitch.

It didn’t take long after the Jan. 29 release of Warcraft for people to begin expressing disappointment to the point that Blizzard has started offering automated instant refunds to for the game. 

The game was riddled with bugs and glitches and cut features from the original game. And some fans also took issue with Blizzard’s inability to improve the game’s graphics the way it seemingly did in the trailer for Warcraft
