    Did you copy the installed version on your old MacBook to the new one or did you try to re-install it on the new one. If you copied it over did you make sure it had all the latest updates. As far as I'm aware the game is Intel compatible but has. Power PC installer and cannot be directly installed on a Mac running 10.7 or higher.

    That's normal, Warcraft III isn't really supported on 10.7, I don't know why Blizzard said it was. You can't install it without copying it over, and the graphics are buggy on the menus (should be mostly ok in the game itself though).

    The only fix is to play on Snow Leopard or use Bootcamp.
