    They're definitely targeting the kids and asians at this point.  They've given up on the US/EU market it appears.

    So the focus of the expansion is the war between the Horde and the Alliance, and they show them helping each other in the cinematic?

    Awesome CGI from Blizzard as usual. Very Guild Wars Factions meets pandas vibes :P

  • BladestromBladestrom edinburghPosts: 5,001Member Uncommon
    Panda blows smoke into human warriors face, Mage crits with a fireball/pyro crit combo for half a million hp. Something ain't quite gelling :p

    The CGI trailer was pretty good, though I kinda wondered who put the orc in my Kung Fu Panda.

    Still, as we have learned repeatedly, CGI trailers are often unlrelated to the quality of the underlying content. In the end, it's still WoW, love it or hate it.

    "Loading screens" are not "instances".
    Your personal efforts to troll any game will not, in fact, impact the success or failure of said game.

    So they are doing away with the cartoony graphics?

    Apparently, I am one of the very few not awed by the trailer. Yeah, it's pretty nifty as far as CGI goes.


    Everything else? Resounding 'Meh'.

    Maybe I'm getting older, maybe Blizzard is getting more predictable. But that trailer failed to evoke any emotional response in me. Nothing new, nothing interesting, all in all as forgettable as any TV ad nowadays.

    As usual with Blizzard vids, it was enjoyable and cool. I liked the not so serious ending.


    Typical Orcs... always must destroy stuff wherever they go. XD

    That made me chuckle - loved that.

    Beyond that one clip though, kind of "meh" overall.

    The CG quality is amazing, it's Blizzard of course it is, the ship battle looked incredible...

    But they will never surpass WOTLK cinematic.


    THAT is why humans always lose! It was THE opportunity to STAB the Orc while he was unarmed and gawking!

    Push your advantage always!

    Very cool trailer... until the panda showed.  Then it just got silly.

    Once again:

    my question is in this topic.

  • ChaulsinNLChaulsinNL Cold Lake, ABPosts: 182Member
    Liked the trailer, but not enough to resub to the game. 
  • SuperXero89SuperXero89 Amory, MSPosts: 2,551Member Uncommon
    Man, Blizzard sucks!  Can't actually do any of that in-game...
  • fivorothfivoroth LondonPosts: 3,914Member Uncommon

    The trailer is very nice. But nothing compares to this :D

    This is the very definition of EPIC. Still Blizzard trailers are the best.

    Mission in life: Vanquish all trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

    Im glad that most of you guys like the cinamatic, I expected hate like always on this forum.

    Movie would be great, but making a great 4 min trailer is one thing, but a 2 hour movie is a different world.

  • MithrandolirMithrandolir The Deep Woods, NJPosts: 1,701Member Uncommon

    As somebody who is neither a big fan of the game nor this expansion (not a hater either, just not my thing), I applaud them for a great trailer!

    Has a great vibe to it and conveys a sense of honor and also butt kicking goodness.

    Was fun to watch, I wont be partaking in the carrot for the dumbed down masses of gamers that is WoW though.


  • TheHavokTheHavok San Jose, CAPosts: 2,411Member Uncommon

    That was funny and awesome. 

    LOL @ the hordes of Blizzard haters coming out of their caves for something as simple as a CGI trailer. 

    But hey, haters gonna hate.

Enough with the "it has to be dark and gritty to cater to a mature audience", and enough with the elves and orcs, that fantasy setting has been dried out. What I want is something new, something with a sci-fi setting. Firefly MMO.

    If 'Sci-fi setting' is your MMO thing, I don't think WoW is for you. :P

    It seems a lot more light-hearted than usual and I think for the first time in an expansion, there was no 'BAD GUY'.

    BC - Illidan, Wrath - Arthas, Cata - Deathwing but MoP? nothing.

    The Bad Guy, according with WOW lore is Tai Lung

    Just got off the phone with a friend. He's going back. He jumped into WSG and feel back in love.  /sigh 


    best battle grounds in the industry...

    seen at forums

    Dear Blizzard,

    In your opening cinematic you show a monk soloing two players. This is completely unfair and I am considering canceling my subscription. Therefore this needs to be addressed or you could lose millions of players.

    That's Chen Stormstout. If he was fighting Varian and Garrosh in the opening cinematic, you might have a point. Maybe. :)
