    WoW's genre is theme park. Everything's available, from stone age Un'goro to Star Trek Tempest Keep.

    Too much pop culture references in WoW. To me, WoW was more like fantasy-medieval, but not anymore

    Are we going to be seeing Garrosh log into his facebook on his ipad while he's bored in Org?
    This made what would otherwise be another lame QQ thread into hilarity. Thanks.

    Warcraft 2 had oil production and refining, flying machines, and submarines. There's been a pretty heavy tech component to Warcraft, going back quite some time.

    I'm guessing you didn't play Warcraft 3, it's full of pop culture references and Easter eggs. Click on the Human units enough time and you'll hear some Monty Python references.

    Blizz has gone way overboard with all the tech in this game in the last few expacs. Everything from motorcycles, to helicopters, to hover rockets ect I mean what next? Jet planes? Computers? Are we going to be seeing Garrosh log into his facebook on his ipad while he's bored in Org? Will we see Thrall calling up Aggra on his new Samsung Galaxy S to check in on her?

    There is technology in this game that even surpasses things we have in the real world, like all these robotics we see in the game. I don't know about you guys but I've never seen anyone riding around on hovering rockets to get to work.

    That's the thing though, if the citizens of Azeroth have access to all this technology why even bother using swords,shields, bows and all that kind of primitive weaponry? Why not just pick up a gun since history has shown them to be a far superior weapon? Never bring a knife to gun fight anyone? You have rockets, bombs, guns all at your disposal yet you still decide to to use axes and swords? Why?

    Anyone else feel the technology in the World...of Warcraft is out of control and breaks the immersion a little bit?
    technology, just like magic requires certain knowledge which not all Azerothians have. And just like magic, Azerothian tech is not reliable.

Plus, the devices don't rely on actual 'tech', or what we'd think of it anyways. It's 'tech' that infuses and manipulates magic, allowing them to build transporters and flying machines, but not computers and 'the internet'.

    Plus.. War tends to make technology advance faster, and, well, the citizens of Azeroth are in a constant state of war.
    Goblins were part of the OLD HORDE during the second war, giving them Zeppelins, War Turtles and Goblin Sappers.

    Though arguably, tech is a lot safer to use in the long term.

    And everyone remembers the human campaign entirely based on The Holy Grail right?

    Wait, there isn't one? But Uldum is entirely based on Indiana Jones, so doesn't that mean the amount of pop-culture has gone up? Yes, yes it does.

    But more than half of it isn't?

    Ok, perhaps I used a bit of hyperbole. But I don't see how you can deny that the pop culture references have increased. We didn't have large portions of the story ripped wholesale from other series. Even with things like the Old Gods Blizzard made it their own.

    In every civilization there will always be advanced races, that are far beyond everyone else.

    In this case, we have 2, one per faction and they help supply their technology, but there is only so much that can go around, that dropping the arms we have been trained over the ears to use would be a ba move. Do you think when te first gun was invented that same day everyone threw down their sword and shields? I highly doubt it. Things like that take time. At this point in WoW, we aren't really all that many yeas into the actual story.
