    Magic chain driveby is very effective, it seems.

    They have a cinematic trailer but I still can't log in. I get a "character not found" message on all my toons when I try to log in on each one. I tried at least one character in every server, letting all servers load, got up and shook my butt at the window, but nothing worked, so I logged out and turned on Big Bang Theory and came on MMO-C to complain.

    Simple, yet epic.

    I got the Shadowlands cinematic instead of that one. Of course, I logged in once before they went live, so that likely was the reason.

    The guy transforms into a worgen when he wants to. I don't think facial animations being strange are that big of a deal.

    Almost all the faces looked pretty off, especially the thumbnail. Weird and.. smudgy, or something.

    So I have a question.

    How does Gen know Sylvanas was behind it when it was a surprise attack? Or does he blame everything on her even when he stubs his toe? I mean he's right but he shouldn't know this.

    Same kind of death magic and basically Val’kyr - it’s an obvious fucking conclusion.

    Sylvanas controls/commands the Val'kyr.

    Yeah, no idea why they showed Nazgrim and Whitemane. Okay I get whitemane given the rule 34 about here, but as for Nazgrim, I can only surmise that they still think we actually gave a toss about him back in MoP as Horde players.

    Personally not a fan, not too disapointed, since I didn't expect it to be something good given we already knew the outcome, but still kinda "meh" for me. Covenient gimping of the main cast is convenient. Ironically the only one that escapes is the one who has been said to be "the most awsomest" of them all - Tyrande (at least the writing constant claims it to be so) - but who is actually the one who has shown the least as far as achievments go so far. This would have worked way better if they had actually let her AND malfurion beat Nathanos (they could have still resurrected him with bullshit maw powers, that would have even been foreshadowing! Think about that..) instead letting her pretty much achieve absolutely nothing. She didn't even sort out the traitor amonst them, they did that in a book as a present to her ..
