    Look at Thrall and Grom in the Warcraft 3 cinematic depicting Grom's death, and then look at the Orc in the MoP cinematic... yes, the MoP one has cleaner animationa nd far more detail, but the style is almost unchanged! That's more than impressive, that's a feat in and of itself.
    That's what's always so good about Blizz's stuff; You can always tell it's theirs. I'm personally hoping our old character remodels are of this quality! Or.. well, you know.. not cinematic quality.. you know what I mean!

    That was quite bad imo :/

    If I didnt know any better, I would think it was a signal of how the pandas teach the horde and alliance to live in peace and harmony, and what's with the teaming up all of a sudden.

    All it did, was make me wish they had added naval battles.

    It should have been alot more serious, and not make horde/alliance look like incompetent fools, who'll get run over by pandas.

    Edit: Also, pandas team up with either hode or alliance, but they fight to protect their homeland? this cinematic should have been for a 3rd faction tbh.

    A brilliant cinematic, but I'm strugling to see why a human and an orc suddenly work togeather when they should be at the hight of tensions after Theramore. But still, it looks fantastic

    If i had this game pre-ordered, I would've cancelled it. That trailer was absolute shit, I want my 4 minutes back.

    I like how the Human gave the Orc his other stick. It felt like he was saying, "It's dangerous to go alone, take this."

    ha ha - Cinematic makes it look like Panda's will be massively overpower. reminded me of DK's at the start of Wrath.

    And yes I know it's a cinematic and not actual game play. just made me chuckle a little....

    Cata and Wrath were awful, this one made up for BOTH of them.
    Wrath cinematic was awful in what bizarre twisted world?

    It was like watching Kung-fu panda with better CG. It was very light-hearted, I was not expecting that. I liked the big bad Illidan and Lich King intros. This one is taking its time to sink in. I suppose we can have a fun expansion, even if it's silly. The world doesn't always have to be on the brink of destruction

    Amazing graphics, pretty fucking stupid little story though...I give it a C-. And it sure doesn't do anything to dissuade the kungfu panda stereotype...

    I think that's the point of the whole question 'what do we fight for,' isn't it? Pandaran of any class start out factionless, but then the player makes a choice to go to the Horde or Alliance, choosing what to fight for.

    As for making Horde/Alliance look incompetent... it's Chen Stormstout versus two exhausted, shipwrecked warriors with makeshift weapons. I'd hope he would hand them their asses.

    Oops, sorry, I guess Blizz forgot that Warcraft needs to be a 'no-fun allowed, moar grim-dark badguys who puke lava pls'. God forbid they have a cinematic with a twinge of trademark Blizz humor. AND OH.. OH CHEES. PANDAS TEACHING HORDE AND ALLIANCE TO LIVE IN PEACE AND HARMONY?

    OH WAIT YOU MEAN LIKE IN THE JADE FOREST STARTING QUESTS?
    I swea'h ta' ga'h. Just because they teamed up JUST to fight the pandaren doesn't mean they're going to be buddy-buddy for the rest of the expansion. It's like the WC3 Trailer thing that someone linked in this thread. The pandas wouldn't 'run them over' either, they're just teaching them to not be fuckin' stupid, because the Sha love fuckin' stupid, and get all riled up around it.

    Also, spoiler alert: The Alliance and Horde make themselves look like incompetent fools 90% of the time.

    The Pandaren that join the Alliance and Horde are not the Pandaren natives we see. They were ones who left the island to explore the world and eventually join sides with us.

    Also, the point of the video was exactly what Chen was stating. "Find something worth fighting for." The human and orc could not beat a single Pandaren Monk when fighting with blind rage like they were. Meanwhile, Chen, protecting his home, subdued them both with ease. It's a lesson to the Alliance and the Horde that they'll be stronger when they finally put aside their differences and find a real reason to fight; protecting their loved ones and world. The entire expansion is supposed to be teaching the Alliance and Horde that lesson before the Legion returns.
