Introducing Azeroth Choppers

Earlier today, we announced the Azeroth Choppers head-to-head match-up between the Horde and Alliance, and we’re very excited to share the upcoming episodes and final bike creations with you. We saw a few questions following the announcement and wanted to take a moment to clarify things.

First, we want to make it clear that players globally will be able to vote for their favorite faction bike—either Alliance or Horde. Second, the bike that receives the most votes will then be made into a faction-specific-only mount and be available FREE to all players (usable when playing characters of the winning faction, of course). Your vote will be very important and could just be the one that lands your favorite faction a shiny new mount. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, check it out here and stay tuned to Azerothchoppers.com for more details!

    Well I meant free as in, besides the monthly sub and game cost...I mean, we could argue whether or not Blizzard should consider a f2p model but I had sortof considered that as beyond the scope of what we're talking about here...

    They should consider having both teams work on horde bikes and the horde just gets to choose which one they prefer.

    So either way both faction gets a mount cause...balance.

    Hate how they split it for each faction. It is obvious that whatever has a bigger player base will get the mount. I highly doubt a person will vote for a bike on the opposing faction no matter how cool it is, because they won't get it in that case.

    I'd expect they only used it in situations where it was actually applicable, such as people wanting hundreds of unique building designs, but I'm interested in any links you have to them using it for more trivial matters.

    Anybody know what kind of phone Chris & Sam are using in the beginning of the video? Looks pretty cool.

    Making it faction dependent is a really bad idea.

    Am I the only one that feels that since WoW's 10th anniversary is coming up, These are going to be the free mount/prize for logging in during the celebration? Make no mistake, they will add BOTH bikes. There isn't a snowball's chance in hell that they would only put ONE bike in the game. They would piss off half their player base.
