In short: ONLY USE WARCRAFT 3 PATCH 1.26!
 
 
 
LoD maps from 6.85j2 and onwards (any future maps) can no longer be played on any patch other than Warcraft 3 patch 1.26. Patches 1.24, 1.28 or above, or anything else, are no longer compatible with LoD or DotA.

This means that any platforms that use other patches, even official Battle.net, are no longer supported. It is your choice if you wish to play outdated maps just for the sake of an obsolete platform (e.g. Battle.net).
Any communities that can prove that they have more than 50 active members and are willing to transfer to RGC can contact me and will receive a completely free room with unlimited administration rights and free hostbots (in either EU, US, or Asia). Everyone else is welcome in the LoD channels on RGC: "LoD" for European & CIS players, "LoD SA" for North and South American players, "LoD" Asia for Asian players, and "Iran LoD" for Iranian players. Any of these channels can be joined by writing e.g. /j lod
RGC is the only client that actively supports LoD and DotA, and as such, RGC decided they will stay on patch 1.26. Any clients using patch 1.26 can still play new LoD and DotA maps, any other patch can't and won't in the future. We will let you know if this changes due to blizzard's new patches in the future, but we doubt it will.

We ask you to spread this information on your community's website or forum, so there will be no confusion as to why no new LoD/DotA maps work with other patches.
We ask you to tell any communities where it's possible to change the WC3 patch to 1.26 to do so. You can use this tool to switch to patch 1.26: http://www.dota-util...er-120-121.html
If you are a Blizzard employee or have a connection to one: we would happily work together with Blizzard to make LoD and DotA possible in future patches. Please contact us: dracolich@ya.ru


If you have any questions, please ask them here.

Probably because 99% of the LoD players play on RGC. And it probably takes more effort to patch it to work with 1.28 which they probably see as a waste of time due to their main playerbase not using 1.28.

Wrong. Newer (and older) wc3 patches are simply incompatible on a technical level with current newest DotA and LoD. This is because new LoD and DotA use a new method called memory modification which isn't possible anymore on wc3 patches 1.27 and higher. If blizzard modifies their patches to allow this again (very unlikely) the maps would work.
