During Blizzcon 2017, Blizzard won a Guinness Book of World Records title for "Largest Video Game Diorama". The diorama sat on the show floor and featured 10,000 randomly selected characters from the attendee pool. It features the Battle of Lordaeron showing the arrayed troops as depicted in the Battle for Azeroth cinematic.

    Any idea if the people who had their characters 3d printed got them as gift. Would've been a really nice bonus, though that would've been unfair to a lot of the other attendees.

    I don't know! Maybe they could purchase their character?

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Someone wrote software to read your character profile assign it a pose and create a 3D file for a printer. They can do this for any character in the game at any scale. How many would pay to have their character as a sculpt.  You could occupy an army of miniatures painters for decades and never complete them all. It's staggering.

    If they had open world pvp on a scale like that in-game I would have never left.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    They talk about finding your figurine in the Diorama. But with out the help of a computer controlled laser pointer, then crawling out on to the Diorama just to see it. I don't think it is even possible. Lastly the game provides world geography, I'm not upset that the Diorama didn't recreate it. But I feel that doing so would have kept up with the Blizzard standard we have come to expect. I also look forward to the WoW haters ridiculing that statement, in their continuing pathetic attempt to spread their hate. Something like this makes me sorry I didn't attend.

    As if it could exist, without being payed for.
    F2P means you get what you paid for. Pay nothing, get nothing.
    Even telemarketers wouldn't think that.

    That's insane. It's really cool to see something of that scale for a diorama.

    This is what WoW needs in game for PvP or at least something like ESO Cyrodiil or GW2 WvW
