    Wicked cineamatic! Even though I personally think the Alliance one is more informative.
    Not suprised by Go'el bringing the hammer down to end Garrosh. Because after all the stuff he did, to both the Horde and Alliance, he couldn't let Varian take the deathblow or take him away in chains (Death because Garrosh was/is the Horde's responsability, especially given that he personally made him Warchief. And against imprisonment because, despite it all, he remembers being contained at Durnholde), but relents in visual level of relief as Varian 1. Opts for the choice of Justice 2. Lets the Pandaren take him away. All letting him save face and not have to personally kill Garrosh.
    Varian was a voice of power and reason. A noble king. Nice and visual salt in he Horde's wounded pride. And with all the Orc business these last two expacs makes me remember that they are just aliens who rampaged throught the portals (etc etc), and that for all their efforts and patience, the smallest infraction will draw the full weight of the Alliance down upon the still weakened Horde.
    Its not a matter of goodies vs baddies for Varian anymore. He has to teach Anduin the way to rule a people. And striking down an ally, even a temporary one, at the precipic eto a new future, is not the way the KING rolls, else he is as bad as Garrosh.

    Also, the quote from Blizz about the next Warchief being unexpected came almost two years ago... it would have been unexpected then, but at least they didn't play "pin the tail on Warchief" here and I would have expected the fanbase to be less- wait... no I don't. HAHA
    Well... as you were gentlemen.

    This is really what i was expecting from the horde cinematic. VERY VERY good expansion, by far the best released so far. Pandaren worked out a LOT better than anyone ever expected, simply because they humbled each faction a lot specially with the threat of Garrosh.

    As for the lore incoming, we shall see how Vol Jin speaks in the future and if he stays as the leader he was since warcraft 3 up to this moment. Certainly glad that Thrall isnt Warchief. It would had been nice to have heard a little argument on the Alliance one between Jaina and Anduin so that the player can see how much has she changed from the way she used to be, while Anduin more than ever, wishes for a world without any war and races united. A little bit like the demon and angel in Varian's shoulders, but by no mean i am calling her evil, just a way to put it. Varian really shined by having the last word

    The story is as boring and predictable as a spanish telenovela, but since I really don't care about it I'm fine with whatever they write.
    Also can we get rid of kor-kron in UC now, k thanks.

    When they said that the warchief was not who we expected, was during CATACLYSM, they revealed the new Expansion MoP, and a few days later revealed that Garrosh would be teh final boss. When players started saying that it was practically guaranteed that Thrall would regain his old position of Warchief, THAT is when they said it wouldn't be who we expected.

    Because back then, absolutely everyone expected it to be Thrall. Then they spent the next 2 years building up Vol'jin to be warchief, but still keeping other people in the spotlight to make it a little more ambiguous (hence Lor'themar's awesome display in MoP)

    totally agree fucking people are just never satisfied shit i thought it was a great ending imo people bitch and complain like they could have done better AFTER the fact

    Varian looks like he took a doomhammer to the face. I spent the whole video being distracted by how badly Blizzard screwed up modelling him.

    Well, some Alliance people complained for a long time that they didn't have a human hero/king equivalent to Thrall... unfortunately rather than have somebody with an established backstory worthy of leading like Turalyon show up, or giving it to somebody who has earned the right to lead the hard way (Tirion), they just copied and pasted Thrall's history and put a cherry (amnesia) on top and called it Varian. The fact his head has never fit his body (model) has always bugged me, what bugged me more though was that in those years Varian was hidden away on Alcaz isle, Metzen had so many options, and so many ways to show a contrast between factions or leadership style. But instead he just took the lazy option and churned out a pretty, long-haired human face, stuck it on a fat human body, oh and the evidence of that whole pit-fighting history? A scar on his face. Not a missing hand or an eyepatch or a bald spot where he took a glancing shot from a mace/sword. A glamour scar.
    I still hold out hope that Turalyon comes back through the portal one day and sets everything right.

    This tier lags on 3-6 months longer than it should, WoW loses another 2-4 mil subs and finally in mid 2014 they'll release another expansion that won't be successful.

    I'm just happy that, regardless of who is the new Warchief, the others have had some spotlight.

    Now, if we can just see Velen stick his hoof into someones business we'll be golden.
    If you spend your entire life getting senpai to notice you, you'll never notice anyone else.

    Actually we all expected Vol'Jin as the next Horde Leader. But the cinematic is amazing and i actually waiting for even better content since this one.

    Vol'Jin as horde leader is nothing unexpected. Dumb but not unexpected. Thrall used to lead but now he will follow? What if Thrall disagrees with Vol'Jin? When he gave leadership to Garrosh he "left the scene" so to speak but now he will be under command of Vol'Jin.

    Blizzard had a chance to elicit "red wedding" from game of thrones reaction in this cinematic. Blizzard could have had Sylvanas whip out that Frostmourne she has been rebuilding (or someone) and turn everyone in the throne room into undead. Anduin and Jaina could have ported out just in time and it would have been Sylvanas vs the world.

    Correct me if I am wrong but did blizzard ever tie up Alleria and Turalyon in this expansion? Or who gathered frostmourne fragments? I don't think it did.

    I know it's been said a million times and people are sick of hearing it, but I still cannot get over how ridiculous and out of place a big fat panda looks in that movie and in the WoW world in general.

    Hopefully now that this expansion is over Pandaren will be pushed to the backburner and barely visible ever again.

    Lame ending of a lame expansion. Even though Jaina is gorgeous and I loved the last "We will end you" line.
    Yes. We will.

    Next time the Alliance tells you to bend over Horde, do it and don't complain, because we know who is the stronger Faction. Don't make our high king pimp slap you guys again.

    You are a groupie at a concert. Take your shirt off for Varian traitor.

    You forgot the part where he jumps off deathwing and sprouts wings and says "You are not prepared!" then pick up garrosh and flies off.
