The latest patch for Warcract III ROC has been released. This patch fixes several bugs, and also contains new features.
Changes in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos version 1.15

FEATURES
The matchmaking system has been significantly updated. New accounts should more quickly begin playing against opponents of equivalent skill level.
Display of channel moderators has changed.
Ladder information is now more clearly separated in your user profile.
Free For All (FFA) games are now anonymous. Account names and player levels will no longer be displayed to other participants. Other players will be displayed as "Player X", where X is the number of the player in the game.
Added an on/off button for the "Alt" formation toggle functionality to the Options --> Gameplay menu. The option is "On" by default.
Added a "Worker Selection" button that appears beneath the construction progress indicator for Night Elf and Orc buildings. This allows Orc and Night Elf players to re-select workers that are currently constructing a building and give them additional way-pointed orders.
Added the ability for users to double-click replay files (*.w3g files) from system directories. Doing so will automatically launch the game and load the appropriate replay.
Buff and debuff icons (not including auras) now flash when their duration has 10 or fewer seconds remaining.
Buff icons will display in the tooltip when a group-selected unit is high-lighted in the info panel.
FIXES
Fixed an issue with cargo-based structures/units (Entangled Gold Mines, Orc Burrows, Goblin Zeppelins, etc.) which could cause units to get stuck inside permanently.
Fixed a problem where water elementals that died during Mass Teleport were not being properly removed from the game.
Fixed an issue that caused hit point bars not to show up properly for some teams when viewing replays.
Fixed an issue that caused the Anti-magic Shell art to display incorrectly on Crypt Fiends after they unburrow.
Fixed a problem where a Scroll of Town Portal could be wasted if the targeted town hall was destroyed before the spell completed. The Hero now retains the Scroll if the spell doesn't complete.
Fixed an issue with the "Observers on Defeat" functionality that caused units not to be displayed on the minimap.
Fixed an issue that could cause the Web and Ensnare graphics to display improperly.
Fixed a problem with the Scroll of Town Portal which did not allow Heroes to regenerate the appropriate hit points and mana while the spell was being cast.
Fixed Shockwave's damage radius to 125.
Fixed an issue with Militia in which units ordered "Back to Work" could change back into Militia when arriving back at the town hall.
Acolytes harvesting from a Haunted Gold Mine with the Entangling Roots buff now register as idle like other peons.
Fixed Lightning Shield so that if two units with Lightning Shields overlap each other, they both correctly take damage.
Fixed an issue with Animate Dead which in some cases caused the spell to transfer the unit upgrades to the new owner.
MAPS
(2)Plunder Isle - Added some trees to the north and south location near the Goblin Merchant to prevent the player from making purchases without engaging the creep guarding the building. Cleared some room around the Goblin Merchant to prevent Archer cheese.
