Very different but I liked it. Hurry up Sept. 25th
Thought it was really underwhelming to be honest. Didn't have that sinister looming threat like the past cinematics. Ones that make you want to rise up and take down the big baddy. There wasn't even a hint of war in this besides the 2 seconds of naval battles. To much time was spent showing an orc and a human lost in a forest. There was some humor, but people want blizzard to reinforce the idea that this expansion will be serious, yet this just went against that. This didn't leave me excited for the expansion. It was a complete snooze. Great animation, but the "story" was lacking big time. They could have showed the turtle island, a vista of the pandaren cities, the sha. Something else. But this....meh. I was really hoping to be blown away. Just no.
Anyone else hoping that the reason they used the orc and the human was to showcase their new models in cinematic quality?
Meh... the CGI was great, but overall this trailer didn't do much.
And.... its just too Disney-like. Especially when the panda placed that axe ''right''
I'd call it .. maybe too childish ? Yep, I don't like this very much in comparison to previous trailers (LK still rulez) but the art style is still nice. I just hope next xpac will bring some of the seriousness from the Warcraft to the World of Warcraft back.
With cinematic like that it will actually show how crap the expansion will be. Wow has officially lost its epicness blizzard just cares about 8 year old kids to encourage them to play
Holy cow, this was great Miles better than LK or Cata cinematics
As for the content, it covers the war, as well as Monks, as well as Pandaria. It had action, humour and was a pleasure to watch.
I also love how he claimed, "Grounded". An alliance and horde ship were just sunk, killing who knows how many on each side all with the bonds of brothers that only can develop through war-fighting being shattered, and then the Orc and Human suddenly team up against a random panda monk.
Far from grounded seems like to me. Overlooking these complex relationships for a cute and fuzzy factor is exactly why this expansion doesn't cut it for me.
I preferred the previous trailers:
Vanilla, epic display of races and classes
TBC, epic display of races and classes and Illidan (minus the mage polymorphing the tauren)
Wotlk, epic display of the Lichking and Sindragosa, really showed how powerful the final bosses was going to be.
Cata, epic display of Deathwing, pity his voice over was slightly crap
MoP, Cool fight until the disney parts (straightening the bamboo signpost and the human handing the orc the spear) I liked it apart from those bits which I find to be more akin to an animated film like Sinbad rather than WoW
Holy moly this is the best trailer I've seen in my entiren life. I had to watch it 8 times in a row. BEST TRAILER EVER
"You are not prepared"->"My son, the day you where born, the very forrests of Loderon whispered the name, ...Arthas! / You shall be king!"->"All will burn beneath the shadow of my wing"->"No fighting in the schoolyard boys!!"
the lack of epicness aside very nice.
I loved, In a way the game is still going to be a surprise. People are moaning at no end boss blah blah, but, I'm quite happy to let things play out and see what happens. i don't need to know everything upfront.
Well done blizz on an excellent trailer!
