    Here are a few tips for you kids:
    First go play Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne.
    Secondly stop being so ignorant and close minded, try having at least a little fun in your life not just hate and ignorance, i'm serious.
    Hate is healthy...

    And where exactly in that game are the Pandaren canon and not a joke easter egg? The extra Horde campaign?

    No, because they existed in Warcraft2 but you ignored that (not to mention they had already established lore before Warcraft3)
    It seems you forgot that Warcraft3 was released in 2001, TFT 2002 (the expansion), stating they will be added in 2003 as fifth race is evident to my point of view (after war3 release) not yours...

    Because Chris Metzen is one of 3 co-leaders of Blizzard back then, he is literally 1/3 of the company POV back then, so yes it is not a small thing he post in forums

    Yep. Founding of Durotar campaign, where Rexxar finds Chen hanging out near Orgrimmar.

    Yes, the bonus Orc campaign which is canon. Are Rexxar and Rok'han just easter eggs, too?

    Yeah. You know, the one that has been cemented in lore because the things that happened in it laid the groundwork for Orgrimmar, Theramore, many quests in The Barrens back in vanilla, and so forth. It's where we got introduced to Rexxar, Vol'jin, Baine, several others and Chen.

    They are as "cannon" as Pingu the penguin, if I knew that they will build an entire expansion on pandas... I'd been demanding a much better introduce to them, specially before KFP shows up

    Just to be clear, also I hate pandas, they are in Lore and I don't ever claim they aren't anymore, I complain a past mistake (imo) but that doesn't make them any less official than Murlocs for example, I hated a lot the idea of killing Illidan but I hope to never see a setback, yes pandas sucks and don't fit in wow, but don't pull them out because some (or a lot, no idea) hate them, stick to your decision to the end, but learn from your old mistakes

    Hey Sam, I really call into question your knowledge of WC3.

    WC3 released July 2002
    The Frozen Throne released July 2003 (which was after the April Fool's joke)

    but the expansion isnt about them... its about the war we bring to where they live... 5.0 we release the sha/stop the mogu/zandalari resurgence/mantid 5.1 we have a huge battle and destroy jade forest also the alliance help varian with the trials of the high king and wrathion furthers his plot. 5.2? 5.3? eventually the war gets so bad for the horde that garrosh does something despicable to win, varian leads an army of alliance soldiers and horde rebels to dethrone him

    6.0 probably burning legion with illidan coming back and demon hunter hero class

    They were still an April Fools Joke on April 1 2005. Well after WC3 and it's expansion. Be it a poke at EQ or the real life food delivery chain.

    Even blizzard saw them as something to joke about.

    I would just like to say this.



    Ok this is Blizzards TBC april fools joke, the second new race (Alliance race) being Wisps. Blizzard obviously thought that the spirits and entities of Night Elves, the unit that builds up the entire Night Elf nation within the warcraft series was a joke.

    At the end of the day, all of it is Blizzard's property, they can do what they like with it,
    if they want to make a joke they make a joke, if they want to follow the lore of that
    character/race/object they do so.

    You can't just say, oh look they made a joke of (Insert item X) clearly they think that
    (Item X) is eternally a joke.

    Which matters why? Blizzard makes jokes about many things.

    See what I did there? 99% of the responses I get are like this. You are not included yet. ''You can't dislike this race because they were in game X''
    Aah, always the role of the victim!

    People didn't start saying that till folks started screaming that they should have never implemented Pandaren, that they are a retarded joke-faction and how everyone that likes them is either an idiot or is a little kid.


    If you don't like Pandaren, sure, not a problem.
    You don't even have to justify your dislike.
    But it gets an issue if people throw around lame arguments and are trying to convince others into hating the Pandaren.

    Perception of course. Most of what we discuss in this thread is someones perception.
