    Minor complaint, but I am not a fan of the that bg loading screen. I guess blizz wanted to go for a different style, but it looks high-school quality to me.

    On the plus side, however, the music sounds pretty cool, especially some of the Void Elf tracks.

    Seems wind waker-ish, maybe because of the ships/water

    TBH, it's probably the gnome/dwarf that is throwing me off. Just looks ridiculous to have that little guy lead the charge lol.

    Very weird loading screen, the Worgen looks like something out of a childrens book.

    Either go high-def like Class Halls or don't.

    I don't like the loading screen either - looks more like Hearthstone artwork to me. - It's not bad but it doesn't fit with the other loading screen art.
    Also that stylized gnome looks off.

    EDIT: Just realized it is supposed to be a drawf in the front - which isn't making it better.

    ABILITY_INFO_NIGHTBORNE1 (New) - - Damage and snare nearby enemies.
    An AoE snare sounds pretty OP.

    Is that loading screen legit? Looks fan-made

    Pretty difficult to make a dungeon group already where someone doesn't have some type of aoe slow as it is. That racial will probably be quite irrelevant as far as the snare goes

    Looks more like concept art, if anything.

    I actually like the bg loading screen, though I agree it feels like a HotS loading screen and not a wow bg one.

    Looks more like a WoW/GW2 art mash up, lol.

    It's objectively not though. You might not like the style but it's obviously made by a professional.

    Yes, I know it was made by a professional, but that is part of the reason why it is disappointing. Blizz has a very talented art team, and, in my opinion, that loading screen is below their level.

    What's the deal with the loading screen ? that's not the wow vibe
  1. Kellorion's Avatar
    FFS Blizz just give the date already

    yeah that loading screen doesn't belong in wow.
