The plot of a digimon hacking missiles and launching them at the real world only works in diablomon and the movie because his profile says he wants to blow up earth with a nuclear strike.
This is bias as a result of looking at the present as though the past was also the same, the only reason Diablomon's profile says that is because of the movie as it only got added to the Reference Book something like seven or eight years after Our War Game. And it's not even accurate to basically any other Diablomon portrayed in other media outside the specific OWG references - hell, it's not even true to Revenge of Diablomon.

One day Arata's Diaboromon will try to nuke Arata's house watch this space
My apologies. Its just that seeing them repeat the same story beats again and again makes me angry. It speaks of low effort for their part and I hoped this reboot would fix the problems I had with the original series.

I meant to say that our war game works because that was the first time omegamon was used and now toei seems to think the fans will only be invested if that is the top they can reach. bandai has already almost ten omega variants without taking into account the chaos variants and it ends up taking away the uniqueness of the evolution.
A reboot can fundamentally not fix the problems of a predecessor. Because it's a reboot. Not a remake.

I think that statement is overly generalizing the range of problems you can have with a part of a franchise.
I mean sure, a reboot won't fix anything in the sense that the predecessor still exists and still has those problems when you watch it, but obviously that's always the case, even with a "proper" remake.

And all "reboot" means is that you can't expect the same story.
But not all problems are related to the story in the first place. Obviously if your main gripe is that Pinocchimon didn't get an epic enough fight before going down you're out of luck because Pinocchimon might not even appear, but if it's a problem that's more abstract then on the contrary, the reboot's freedom in terms of story offers many more possibilities to improve on those than a direct remake has.
Because a reboot can still improve how themes and characters are handled, it can make mechanics work in better and more coherent ways, in short it can still improve anything other than the story.

For example if the 2003 Hulk movie wasn't to your taste because the Hulk didn't smash enough, the rebooted 2008 Incredible Hulk fixes that issue by including a lot more smashing.
Or look how Casino Royale presented a departure from the overly campy and formulaic approach that the Bond franchise often gets stuck in. Being a reboot does not magically eliminate any and all comparison to what came before.
