    Well at least someone is making Warcraft content.

    Kind of.

    It'd be nice if they focused their time and money more on making content for the game instead of these stupid programs.

    Your sub dollars at work.

    Choppers, weapons, the movie...

    I just want more dungeons, more max-lvl quests, and a stunning raid or two. I think you'll find it works out much cheaper, blizz (shareholders).

    I fail to see how a single production crew filming a guy who does this for a living can in ANY way take away from WoW development. IDK maybe I have too much experience in the real world.

    I normally wouldn't bother to bash this, but WoW is in a shitty state right now. They need to focus on the product, not the fucking sales pitch.

    This is awesome! I wondered where Tony went to, I remember when he made Frostmourne ( on his own webseries Man At Arms. He and his team takes requests for any weapon from pop culture there in the youtube comments below his videos for those interested! Now I wish he would make the Warglaives of Azzinoth or Ashbringer!

    Also, I can't wait to see what kind of negative comments the Wow community will come up with about this video. *sits in front row seat and grabs some popcorn w/ a large soda*

    Oh, we got one!

    Is this sarcasm? If not, then how is it like the chopper? Tony has his own youtube series where he makes weapons from pop culture (videogames, media, etc) every few weeks or so. This wasn't a highly advertised week long thing where he makes gorehowl, and there certainly wasn't any contest for it. It was just a nice community video posted by Blizzard out of the blue.

    They literally just paid him to make a weapon, no development hours were spent on this short video. The money spent on the video I'm 100% sure didn't cut into development funds.

    But hey, it's better then Azeroth Choppers
    I don't think you understand the point. It's not the cost but the fact that they are promoting themselves when there is a sweeping negative feeling of the current state of game. It's not about sub dollars being spent, it's about a company GETTING ITS SHIT TOGETHER. The April Fool's thing is a tradition. This is just needless promo. Promo changes, new features or functions coming in the game... FUCK.. even the twitter bullshit was more conducive to the game than this. I hate even just saying that.

    small?! its MASSIVE for a weapon of its type.

    the thing about weapons is you have to actually be able to wield them. The thing about weapons in RTS games, is that they have to be visible from a high up camera
