    Am I the only one excited? To be honest I'm glad they are not doing another tier. Gives me a break from too much WoW and focus on real life issues. I bet since this is really only a personal opinion most people would definitely disagree with me.

    I really don't see how this is taking from WoD at all. They filmed probably 30 min with these guys and the money to film this thing I'm guessing is going to come from when the chopper goes on sail in the blizzard market. I really feel like they wanted to do this, because they wanted to give something to the fans.

    I agree we should be able to vote on this, guide the direction it goes.

Sam Didier is exactly how I imagine most hardcore Horde crazies; a cringy manchild who says retarded shit like "I have a quest for you" complete with Orc voices mid-conversation. Paul's wife snorting with laughter was exactly my reaction to Sam.

    At least it was only a few minutes of my life wasted on this guff after skipping the 5-minute intro.
    I take it as the utmost truth, and not a the rant of man-child, coming to the forums to waste another 5 minutes, trying to diminish others to feel mature without deserving it.
    Perhaps a better and bigger mirror is a great suggestion for your next birthday gift.

    The opening of this show suddenly took me back to the time when we hadn't SSAO in WoW, when I tried to submit all my tauren to the Transmog gallery of Blizzard.

    Speak for yourself. Blizzard IMO is still alive and doing well.

    Both bikes suck hard core. I mean seriously, tank wheels? And to see the horde bike is a trike, i mean come on!! We already have a trike for the goblins. Let the alliance win. Horde isn't gaining anything new. Just a third, lamer looking trike.

    100% correct. The whole project is laughable. Feels like Metzen and co are in that place where they got all the toys they can dream of and that's what their life is now. Screw paying customers that want content, we're gonna put time in a crap show because we like choppers.

    Standing around in heavily edited videos like badasses. Can't be more fake.

    I am not a big chopper fun, but i saw several very good looking one before. But those 2 bikes... looks very stupid. Even the in-game bikes in the video are 10 times better. I play ally side, but if we win accidentally i will never use this new "mount".

    I guess that bullshit will "cost us a raid tier" ? Nice job spending resources on some shit nobody wants and making us run SOO until late fall.

    Who else is loving these comments

    By the Looks of those bikes it seems the guys at "Azeroth Choppers" believe that WOW's player demographic consists of 'retarded' 12 year olds LOL

    Talk about adding insult to injury

    Good comedy is good and I'm not even a paying customer

    I'm a little disappointed that the choppers don't look more traditional, but I'll be happy with whichever one wins. For the Horde!

    What's pretty amazing is how heavily edited that video is, yet they still have numerous shots of Paul looking bored/very clearly thinking "lol, what a bunch of nerds" almost the entire time the camera panned to his face. And then they put in the part with his wife laughing! Someone in video editing must have some serious hate for Sam and Chris.

    Also, if that's the edited version, I'd like to know what was happening in the edited footage if that was the good stuff...why would you hire a bike company that obviously has no passion or interest in the game, I'm sure you can find a bike shop that has some WoW players on payroll and/or at least doesn't act like you're a total dork when on camera.

    GG Alliance, the Horde will win by a landslide.

    Best LOL moment of the episode: When Chris Metzen was first shown the ally bike he went like: "OH shit this looks like crap" for a second but then regained composure and went: "Err, awesume job guys...derp" HAHAHA

    <3 Metzen

    It's because said bike company was born in reality faux drama television. They know how to fake it.
    The original show follows some father son company, in which the father and son have some heavy disagreements, so the son goes solo and sets up a competing business (That being the guy in this video, Paul Jr.) and at first failing miserably when building a business (pro. ably only done for the reality television drama). So it's fairly logical as why they'd go him when making a mini parody version of that. It's essentially one expensive cross promotional advertisement for both companies and the original reality television show.
    So you can bet your ass that Discovery is also silently supporting this deal.

    And I only know because I watched some of the episodes when it was on discovery, late at night, and I either happened to wake up in the middle of the night or couldn't sleep.

    Hell, why would you expect anything of quality when you've seen the intro being a panning of the Blizzard HQ building and them doing the whole cliché telephone scene? That's a more important question here.

    They look like Kimpex Commander Trex 3.0 ATV Tracks usually for snow and mud, not streets.
    They can go really fast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tEew07frB4#t=47

    p.s. the bikes are developed for an imaginary world (WoW) afaik there are no asphalt highways in WoW so traks look legit for the offroady type of envoriment.
