    Saw this a few times last night during the playoffs.

    "My Fantasy is having two men at once...

    One Cooking and One Cleaning!"

    ---------------------------

    "A good man can make you feel sexy,

    strong and able to take on the whole world...

    oh sorry...that's wine...wine does that..."

    Yep me too, wasnt impressed at all. Probably because the last time I played WoW was in 2004, hence the whole thing has zero pull for me.

    I am not the intended audience.

    30 second advert for a warmed up, computer generated pile of turd. It's not even an impressive turd either. It's the Ultimate Turd of Mediocrity.

    £100 on this one tanking so badly it'll make every prot warrior in the world cry.

    They waited too long to make this in my opinion.  It should've been made 10 years ago.

    If you like movies and fantasy, you're the intended audience.

    However since you played WoW once in 2004, you see Warcraft as a movie and say ya not for me. The movie is based off the first War and has nothing to do with WoW. Movie is actually more of an alternate retelling anyways, it will be different.

    If WoW didn't exist people would likely be like oh a fantasy movie, I'll give it a shot.

    Blizzard are not dumb, it s not late in anyway shape or form. If they re trying to drum up interest in the game , with the  movie, now is as good a time as any.

    The movie's pretty solid looking - but as for as Blizzard goes, I'm skeptical of anything they put out these days. It's obvious they're trying to renew some interest in their franchises, but I doubt it's gonna be more than a spike.

    Blizzard needs to go back to its roots, when it was a company that didn't care about short term profits, released the games when they were done - and not a second sooner. That's how they grew from a handful of folks in a basement to an empire of Legend.

    It boggles my mind why they broke from that to become just another EA - shying away from innovation, rushing games out for holidays... games like Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm: generic clones of successful games already on the market.

    Well Blizzard isn't putting the movie out so no fears there, right?

    As for HotS, it is actually a very well done game, unfortunately its largest problem is the matchmaking. Overwatch is a B2P that scratches an itch for people who wanna stay in Blizzards circle of gaming products.

    Blizzard is smart and they won't be slowing down. They're offering folks a little bit of everything without leaving Blizzard. The whole buy this game and get a special reward in 5 other games is genius. People will be buying Overwatch just for the perks in their main games.

    Early lore is best lore. If the movie is a success and we eventually get to the third war and Arthas' fall, I'll be happy.

    Yeah I agree. 

    Blizzard is not just trying to reach out to players. 

    While it will speak to players who are interested, I think the idea is to entice people who like fantasy stories and of course advertise their gaming world.

    Real humans look too out of place in all of that CGI, IMO. Kinda looks ridiculous. But I might Netflix it.

    Legendary Pictures and Blizzard Entertainment are collaborating on the film - Blizzard is absolutely putting it out, just not alone.

    A lot of things are subjective. I know some folks like HoTS - I gave it a fair shake. To me, it's Baby's First MOBA without any depth. Whereas Hearthstone revolutionized MTG, all HOTS did - IMHO - was dumb down Dota 2 and LoL, create a kick-ass cinamatic, and call it a day. And I'm very unenthusiastic for Overwatch. I've put in hundreds of hours playing Team Fortress 2 - I don't need the same game with a slight graphics update and Ultimate Moves.

    You're not wrong though - Blizzard is great at promoting. They're very profitable and still continue to grow - just not nearly as fast as they did when they were a one-of-a-kind company that didn't just latch onto whatever was hot. Blizzard of old was the gaming company that knew what you wanted to play before *you* knew what you wanted to play. Now they're just in the business of rehashing safe, popular games in time for Christmas. Nothing special anymore.

    So have you not watched a movie in the last 15 years?

    I just hope they stay true to the game

    Never saw a good movie based on a video game. I doubt this would be the first. I have more hopes for the AC movie, maybe it's because I like Fassbender. Although I will defiantly watch wow, not because it's wow but because the director is Bowie's son and he has recently passed away so kinda out of my respect for the father I want to do something nice for the son :|

    the mario bros movie was awesome :P hahahaha

    the only thing i like about the movie is the scenary ,dalaran looks really cool!
  • gunmanvladgunmanvlad Member UncommonPosts: 277
    I'm not sure the story lends itself to such a movie, as a concept. It's "too epic" and grand-scale at that level, at least in my eyes.

    I am expecting mind-blowing CGI and will watch if only just for those + Travis Fimmel (Vikings fan), but the script might just let the movie down. Wonder why they didn't tie it to current WoW events more, or a bridge to Warcraft 4.
  • NanfoodleNanfoodle Member EpicPosts: 7,774
    I dont care if its a WoW movie or not. If its good I will go see it. I do hope it does well, as I would love to see video games start making movies that are quality, but so far that has not been the case.

    WoW was my first MMO. Would not miss this even if its #$%&.
  • StizzledStizzled Member RarePosts: 1,936
    I'd be a lot more excited to see it if it were entirely CG.
  • WhySoSeriousWhySoSerious Member UncommonPosts: 156
    I'm an on-off WoW player. WoD was terrible IMO, and I'm not currently subbed. I will be buying Legion though, looks like it has some fun stuff. Looking forward to this movie. I hope it shows the full scope of Warcraft, rather than just humans and orcs.
