    Name of the Warcraft movie?

    ---------- Post added 2013-01-13 at 10:12 AM ----------

    Addendum: one of the Blizzard titles from 2013 will run on Linux. This was confirmed a few days ago on various news sites.

    There's 3 possibilities:

    1) Heart of the Swarm
    2) World of Warcraft
    3) New game

    I put my money on #1 for the simple reason it makes sense to port this over since the third SC2 will come out when Linux gaming is more popular. So it makes sense to invest here (although I question the market for RTS games like SC2 on ARM tablets). #2 makes sense because Blizzard has had a native port internally. #3 could make sense in the context of this topic.

This is exceptionally bad story writing.

    Edit: I was slightly off from what I remembered but the bad story telling element still stands: http://www.wowwiki.com/Draenei_controversy


    WoW isnt based on the warcraft series lore? Is someone sniffing sharpies?

    Also as far as WoW/Titan goes there hasn't been a whole lot of information out there as to what exactly Titan is. From memory Blizzard said it is going to be a casual MMO. This makes me think that it will be Free 2 Play with micro transactions or something that way it doesn't get in the way of WoW's subscription model. Other than that its been 3? 4? 5? years since they announced that they were working on the project and haven't said a word yet... I doubt they will create "WoW2". They will just upgrade graphics in WoW like they are currently doing and constantly expand upon WoW. The reason World of Warcraft 2 won't come is because the people who want to play it are the same people already stabley paying 15$ per month playing a game they already own and are invested into. This is why Ultima Online 2 never came out and was canceled, because they were making a game for the exact same audience they already have.
    You, sir, have a lot to learn about sarcasm.
    Also, I agree that the draenei storytelling is poor. But i wanted to point out the obvious flaw of mentioning the blood-elves in the same sentence.

    Here is what I think/HOPE...

    Warcraft 4 does not have to be set in the future. I actually hope it isn't set in the future, but rather the past. There is a goldmine of lore in Warcraft way before the events that took place to set WoW's storyline.

    I hope that the story is set during the Arathor era. The Blood Elves have just moved to Silvermoon and are fighting the Troll Horde, and the Arathor Empire is struggling to keep it's self together, meanwhile the Troll threat lingers over them as well. They learn magic from the Blood Elves and try to contain it, but it is difficult and the Burning Legion lingers in the background.

    This eventually, years from now, could even set the plot for WoW2.

    I dont think a warcraft IV taking place in the future would be able to be created after WoW is up and running.
    Although imo a warcaft IV game with events taking place in the past like the imprisoning of the Old Gods by the Titans or the story of the Draeneis as a campaign would be nice because through this we could get a deeper and funnier look in Lore than books(and im a bookworm) or blue posts. Meaning who can ever dislike the journey of Arthas until purge Stratholme:P.

    K I joined this forum for the sole purpose of replying to you who are " (100% sure)" of everything...and yet are completely wrong. Everyone I knew back when Warcraft 3 was rocking played it for the campaign and the LADDER. DOTA and all of those custom maps came later. THE PANDAREN BREWMASTER WAS A SELECTABLE HERO IN LADDER MULTIPLAYER. It had absolutely nothing to do with DOTA until later.

    If you haven't played Warcraft 3.....which it sounds like you obviously haven't as anyone who played it would KNOW that brewmaster was part of the game and not just some DOTA hero, you really shouldn't make comments like you're an expert. You obviously have no clue and if you have played the game it was well after WoW's release when WC3's Huge multiplayer ladder community had already moved on.

    That is all.

    You know, I'm kind of dubious about the possibility of future Warcraft RTS games given the existence of WoW but... here's one possibility: they could release Warcraft 4 and a WoW expansion in tandem, and have them run side by side. You could play through the RTS side of the game in WC4 and the RPG side of the game in WoW, so that the two storylines occur simultaneously and complement each other. That would be a hell of a thing to pull off (read: doubt it would ever happen) but imagine how cool it could be if they did!

    The hell? Brewmasters and Chen in particular were in the Frozen Throne campaign. In fact Chen had a big role in the Orc campaign alongside Rexxar.

    At least I'm pretty sure it was TFT... does anyone remember if Brewmasters were in-game in original WC3?

    Definitely wasn't DOTA anyway.

    Warcraft 1 and especially Warcraft 2 were massively popular games in their time. Of course that was quite a while ago so us old timers are outnumbered by all the little brats who think Mass Effect 1 is an old game now :P

    Or a Heroes of Might & Magic style game. But that's a bit out of fashion now, and Warcraft 3 was essentially a fusion of Warcraft and HoMM anyway. So unlikely.

    Imagine a metagame RTS in WoW.

    Once you completed TFT you'd unlock this extra campaign. Your first hero was Rexxar. Your second one Carn. And the third one was Chen. It was the first time I saw Pandaren but could've been me. It felt weird to me, the character, and once I had the hang of it, I enjoyed it very much. "Have one on the house" indeed!

    Brewmasters was before, like a secret NPC. You was need to search hard and explore all the map in story.

    As an RTS, it could easily be something in WoWs past (Trolls vs Aqir, for instance).
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    As cool as that would be, it wouldn't be Warcraft with the Alliance vs. the Horde, or at least orcs vs. humans.

    Oh yes I would love to see Warcraft 4, though I do admit the timeline would cause problems.
    Set it in the future and those Warcraft fans who do not play wow will be angry...
    Start it from Cataclysm and current wow players will be angry...

    ...I guess?

    An interesting thing is that they could continue the story where they left the Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne, like, another alternative story, instead of World of Warcraft.

    I don't think there's is significant reason to believe they're making WC 4. It's possible, but it could be anything. Could be Legacy of the Void, the next expansion, some new unannounced game, etc.

    Blizzard make mistakes, but they are not THAT stupid
    WoW is filling their bank account, of course it wont end

    I like how when people see "Warcraft 4" they immediately think "Sequel".

    I wouldn't mind if WC4 became an RTS based around the War of the Ancients.

    I don't see Warcraft 4 being a success.
    Since I have no idea what the sales figures are, but I know how many people enjoy the lore of these games I call shenanigans on your numbers.

    I would love a warcraft 4 game, although because WOW is the front runner for story content I would hope they use Warcraft 4 to revisit Warcraft 1&2, and fill in several major gaps in the Warcraft lore. ie "Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans" needs to be redone, also visiting past Lore ie War of the Ancients, Troll Wars, War of the Shifting Sands, and the War of the Three Hammers


    ie they can revist all the old games and they can visit ancient historic events which are mentioned which you can see the results.

    -------------Everything Between here ---------
    (BM - Before Medivh opens the Dark portal, ADP - After Dark Portal, ~ = approximatly)
    10000 BM War of the Ancients - Night Elves vs Night Elves and Burning Legion

    ~1000BM War of the Shifting Sands - Night Elves and the Dragon Flights face off against the Qiraji and Silithid
    ~230BM War of the Three Hammers - Dwarves three way rumble.

    ~18 ADP A Young human raised Orc named Thrall unites the broken Orc clans. A new horde is born. (Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans)
