The remastered version. Since only the latest release will ever be supported, this version tracks latest (much like StarCraft II).
Campaign, custom modes, editor, LAN and Battle.net
What does not
Everything works as expected, given the needed workarounds.
The game now launches from the Blizzard App, which means, that it must run in Windows XP mode (soon to be unsupported by the App) in order to see the items in the window, which you have to see for the first run, as there is a banner that must be closed before you are presented with the Play button. Once done that, you may run in any other version of Windows mode you wish.
With Wine 2.14-staging, as with the 1.19.* versions, you must run with the Windows version set to either Vista or 2003, as otherwise you get status c0000094 or the process size error message.
What was not tested
Everything was tested, movies, game play on-line, LAN
I would give i Platinum if it not were for the Blizzard App and Windows versions restrictions.
