    Unfortantely I think its just the opposite. WoW will be flooded with even younger people now. Get ready when your vent has a majority of kids on it. Sure, there was always that one kid who you raided with. But now, just wait. Good business move for Blizz, bad game move for the gamer.

    I'd rather game with a 13 year old who likes fun looking artwork.

    Than a leet dood who's mad that he can't wank off to the new polygons.

    I used to play MMOs like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

    Sadly Warcraft is lost on many people, they don't seem to realise warcraft is not meant to be taken too seriously, all these people LOL'ing about Panda's just don't get Warcraft and Warcraft is better for it IMHO.

    Sure ragging on WoW makes them feel grown up and mature (they're not) but I say let them go play their super serious un-canny valley games with their stiff character animations, emotionless faces and grey/brown colour palette, I'll stick to playing something that knows it's a game.

    Yeah but you gave them cash for talking cows and elves that dance like MJ.

    They're the fools here.

    PVE scenarios. Wonder what game they cloned that from ?

    NA subs declining--let's put the nail in that coffin and go for the Chinese dollars.

    Makes marketing sense, I guess.  Still a shame.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    I haven't played WoW in years and have no intention of starting to play again, but to all the people who find this completely ridiculous:

    First of all, Pandarens were in Warcraft III.  Yes, originally it was an April Fools joke, but they weren't made up for WoW.  Also, the Warcraft franchise has never been a franchise that took itself too seriously.  This franchise has units that quote Monty Python, Murlocs, Two-headed farting Ogres, and dancing Night Elves.

    Wake the hell up - It's a silly computer game. they do it for the lulz. World of Warcraft is a game with cow men paladins on motorcycles. the joke is on you for crying all "buuhhh they ruined the game

    Just because somethings rated PG12 it doesn't mean it has to souly attract 12 year olds you know . I think Blizzard seam to have forgotten that .

    I don't think anyones crying about it I think we all find it increadibly funny especially after so many WoW fans defending Blizzard saying they wern't aiming the game at increasingly a younger demographic . This expansion certainly is .

    To a certain extent all games are aimed at children and cater to an immature element in us all but theres a point when a game will be viewed as pretty much a childs game . That points normally when you get cutsey playable animals in it .

    I tell you what take away the WoW logo and show the promotional picture to say 100 adult I guarantee the vast majority of them if not all of them would think its a game for a very young child .

    Pandas have that effect . Worgen dont as they resemble werewolves and Taurens dont as they resemble Minotaurs .

    I know a few people already that have cancelled thier sub today to WoW its a step too far for them .

    Is this a joke?

    I'm surprised and shocked to see Panda bears as the new playable race.. I'd rather see the ottermen than them..

    As for Monks being the new playable class, I actually guessed that on youtube, lol.. My first guess was Monks followed by Bards, followed by Demon Hunter.. 

    Honestly though, I like the Monk Idea, but really hate Panda's as a playable race.. It just screams Asian Market!

     Agree,all those "serious" mmos launched lately didn't do too well ,probably because lot of people want something fun and colorful in their games not  dark and bland worlds.

    Kung Fu Panda? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?



     



    I used to play with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when I was a kid. The characters were fantastic, e.g., Leonardo, Don, Mike, Raph, Shredder, Krang, Slash, Splinter, etc....


    HOWEVER,


    When they started to get cute with stupid characters like, "Pizza Throwing Raph" and "Rappin' Mike", I thought that was even too gay for a 12 year old.


     


    Moreover, the Monk is probably the dumbest class of all time.



     



    This is WoW.





















     









     

    I swear you guys crack me up.. Pandas!! how could they:

    Arrakoa = bird people

    Centaur= horse people

    Furblogs = bear people

    Gnolls = hyena people

    Kobolds = rat people

    Magnataur = mammoth people

    Murlocs = fish people

    Naga = fish/snake people

    Qiraji/Nerubian = bug people

    Quillboar = boar people

    Taunka = buffalo people

    Tauren = cow people

    Tol'vir = cat people

    Tuskarr = walrus people

    Wildkin/Moonkin = owl people

    Wolvar = wolverine people

    Worgen = wolf people



    I don't see a problem.


     

    Oh yeah, COMPLETELY THE SAME as panda people.

    Well, apart from the fact that a large number of those things are from ancient myths and legends and the ideas behind them are thousands of years old (i.e. werewolves, minotaurs, centaurs, mermaids, etc. etc.) and panda people are a silly marketing gimmick with no real lore or reason behind them.

    cross-faction? choose Horde/Alliance? can it get more awesome than that?

  • grawssgrawss None, CAMember Posts: 419

    Hmm, I'm looking at all these "talent" tiers, and I can't see where it'll remove cookie cutter specs. It'll definitely do a great job of mixing up PvP so you aren't always running into the same exact thing, but PvE specs will pretty much all be the same, and I can even see a lot of the PvP specs being the same.

    Sarcasm is not a crime!

    I can see it largley removing cookie cutter for PvE but also PvP, take the warrior level 15 choice;


    • 1. reduce charge cooldown 20>12 sec

    • 2. charge twice before cool down

    • 3. charge + 5 sec root

    3 is probably the best for PvP if you realy wanna bash that target , 2 is also quite good for PvP if your main target is too far way then just spring off a closer target, 1. Speaks for it's self in PvP.

    I'd say the choice is harder but all lend themselves to PvP.

    I didn't think it was possible to dumb down WoW more than it already is. But they managed to pull it off. 6 talent points... that's all you get. WTF

    I don't know.. I wish I had more pandas in other mmos. Less cartoon looking , but being a panda would be just as cool as being a Wookie.

  • IsawaIsawa Middle 0 Nowhere, ORMember Posts: 1,051 Uncommon

    So are the Pandarens going to be a neutral faction? Otherwise, one side will have more toon choices than the other, and having them be options on Alliance and Horde would be pretty low.

    Heck, this may be a good news, if a squad of monk bears start kicking Alliance and Horde toon's butts :) Probably not though...

     

    Edit: Cross faction, choose Horde/Alliance at level 10. freaking lame.
