I really like cut scenes as long as they are in moderation and are skippable after the first time you've watch them.
(What if it was a cut scene involving baby hippos, Tziva?)

No, really, I do like cut scenes. I don't like the in-game event scenes that we were showered with in Cataclysm (although those can be tolerable if used sparingly). Genuine cut scenes are awesome, even if they don't include hippos, but they have to be quality, relevant, and in moderation. I don't want to OD on them every five minutes, but I love really epic ones like Wrathgate or the end of the Lich King, etc.
They would've fitted nicely at end of each zone.

The opening to the Vale
I personally would have liked more. I love the story they tell and the way they tell it. The cut scenes add so much life to the story.

"you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.
Cut Scenes are good for when it's important. Seeing them A LOT, no thanks.
Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me. Paladin-Sorcerer at your service! My Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Aeluron Big fanboy of Yrel now. Love her now
The only ones that irritate me are the few that you cannot ESC out of.
More cut-scenes with high-poly characters would be nice, yes. I really enjoy them. The other cut-scenes with in-game models and nothing more than some camera movements can be quite annoying though.
I agree the other scenes don't really add anything
yeah I wish there was more of them while levelling. I just hope we will see more of them in upcoming patches, this would be a great way to tell a story of all that Alliance vs Horde conflict.
I loved the one in Jade Forest, pity they didn't put in more of that kind.
No, I find them a complete waste of time and I would rather they spent time on other things.
Yea I agree with most of the people here. They're kinda cool the first time around. Then they just get in the way and my ui freaks out sometimes and I cant skip em always. So I'm cool with fewer. I liked the wrath model in this respect. The wrath gate was badass, and you had to work through a lot of quests to get it and it was worth it and worth watching. But it didnt really get in the way cuz it didnt pop up every time you leveled through unless you really looked for it.
I'd prefer my orcs to stand up straight.
Cut scenes in Cataclysm were massively overplayed. They got a good response from Wrathgate and overplayed their hand. CGI based cut scenes also need to be something special. The Klaaxi Council was perhaps the one scene in the game other than the Jade Forest which could have carried it off but didn't get one. However, that wasn't a major loss and the cut scene provided worked well enough.
The longer cut scenes usually always include audio, while the short ones don't, if i recall correctly.
