    Wouldn't roll one but if players made that thud when they hit the ground dead like ogre npcs did it'd be a lot of fun hunting them in BGs

    I understand that, Im just saying it would require much more work than other races in the past to make them look good enough for me to want to play.

    Anyone saying 'Ogre's are too dumb' just look at Cho'gal, one of the most powerful mages ever.

    Orc-ogre hybrids from the Mok'Nathal clan could work instead. But they are mostly extinct. They are smaller than full Ogres and also more intelligent.

    The ones saying that are the same as the ones saying that Orcs are savages and that the Horde is evil.

    Bilgewater Goblins learnt us that Blizzard don't really care about the number of remaining individuals of a people when it comes to playable races.

    He was a 2-headed ogre. 2-headed ogres are the ones Gul'dan made to be mages.

    Yes, no doubt at all
    I love them more than Trolls I admit, or Taurens

    wouldn't really see the point at this stage of the game. Unless they were given some borderline OP racials for my favored class it wouldn't really be worth it.

    Sorry, but a single Ogre personally trained by Gul'dan does not make Ogres as a race intelligent.
    They're stupid.

    Ogri'la.

    Right there we have more intelligent Ogres pre-Cata than we had intelligent Worgen.

    And Worgen are already playable.
    As long as players are happy and enjoy the game, the team doesn't mind extreme peaks and valleys. They just want to ensure you have a great experience and feel like you got your money's worth.
    If you truly believe that, Blizzard, show me you mean it. Because WoD didn't show me.

    I don't know, I'd question the intelligence of a nihilistic, chaos-worshiping, wantonly vicious madman (madmen?) whose repertoire of past deeds consists entirely of defeat and failure...

    Their enlightenment was due to the Apexis crystals.

    I'd make one, cause I make at least one of everything, but I wouldn't say it is a race I am hoping gets in.

    Absolutely. I'd get a big stompy ogre warrior or something and go crush stuff.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some running around but not for me, personally.

    Sure at least they're better than goblins, but MoP killed my desire to have more than 2 chars at max level.

    I could see myself making an Ogre Warrior just because of their massive size.

    Would I play one? No. Would I like to see them available as options? Sure, why not?

    I mean, look at trolls, 99% of them are bad and the one good tribe is part of the Horde, and ogres have long since been members of the Horde historically. Sure, Ogres aren't going to be rocking the world of engineering like Goblins, but I would say most are only slightly less intelligent than your average Orc or Tauren, and the two headed varieties have already been show to be just as intelligent (if not more) and capable of magic. You show one how to ride a mount or pilot something, I'm sure they could manage. Or if you really want, just limit the classes to favor the more physical ones or ones already seen in-game: warrior, shaman, lock, mage. For others, monks I suppose since it's just more bashing and they do brew stuff (gee they brew and cook their food, capable of some intelligence), rogues would be a bit hard to justify since like Tauren, they just aren't sneaky, but they are physical. Then just lock out the light-affiliated classes of priests and paladins along with druids and you have a decent mix of classes to go with.
