    I like it, BUT IMO should add some green wild vines maybe crawling up the statues, show some (More noticable) moss ect. ect. Make it look like it wasnt just built yesterday. All in all looks good. But really needs more green. MOAR GREEN!!!

    I like it. It has enough of the Panderan peaceful feel of it with the colour choices etc but the presence of the Mogu statues gives it just enough ominousness.

    Usually you only hear the first 15~ seconds of the login screen music. Glad that I don't have to listen to a serial killer murder scene every time I log out. Love it!

    Not to mention the music - It's the vanilla soundtrack remixed. It's awesome.

    Yeah, I feel you on that one, wish they would use more of the colour scheme from The Jade Forest and such, with lots of colours.

    Blizz have some nerve to rip off LoTR like that.
    That's all I'm saying.

    Can you explain how that is in anyway "amazing"?

    It's like looking at a screenshot with some flowers in the foreground.. Totally disappointing.

    Bland, hideous, boring, uninspired.

    After two different versions of the Dark Portal, a vista of Icecrown and pretty epic imagery of Deathwing on Stormwind's rooftops, this is a rather paltry offering. I would have expected them to capitalise on the bright, vivid colours that the Chinese-inspired architecture and landscapes could display and make Pandaria seem a beautiful and mysterious place to discover. Instead it's a dull pallette and unremarkable statues of an unremarkable new enemy they're introducing. Even something highlighting the increasing tensions between the Alliance and Horde would have been better than this.

    Says a lot about the direction of WoW; while I won't say that gameplay is slipping - obviously it's not, a lot of people still love to play - but for the story aspect, it's now picking through a mire of humdrum new enemies and storylines to find the few interesting scraps. The MoP login screen makes Pandaria look, to me, uninteresting and not worth renewing to play through. It doesn't sell me on the Mogu as a fearsome enemy to be reckoned with.

    The new remix of the WoW theme music is pleasant, at least.

    You mean staring at the horrible Deathwind model?

    When I'm looking at the other Aspects, they look amazing. Deathwing looks like he was modeled by a infant.

    I love how Inabu infers gameplay related factors from his subjective assessment of the login screen.

    That's actually exactly what I didn't do. If you bothered to read the post, you'd know that.
