    BfA login screen speculation

    As much as the importance of login screens has diminished with time (mainly because of the auto-login feature), the login screen always sets the tone for the expansion. What do you think we will see this time? Given that we get two completely different continents, it's seems unlikely that any of them will be present. The other option would be to base it on the pre-expac events, but as much as I would enjoy seeing a giant burning tree every time I log in, it would probably feel a bit too disconnected from the main content of the expansion.
    My best guess is some kind of battlefield to represent the struggle between the Horde and Alliance. And knowing Blizzard, they will be happy to use the chance to put in a throwback to the original Warcraft series, so I would expect something heavily inspired by Warcraft 3 title screen. What are your thoughts?

    WarCraft 3 had little to nothing to do with Factions.

    Teldrassil just burning in the background.

    Every time Night Elf lovers log into the game they must see it.

    Wrathion flying down on an Alliance banner, roaring.
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    How is that for a login screen?

    No, go away.


    OT: Alliance and Horde forces on a battlefield but with a lot of shadows on the ground.

    Battle for Lordareon most likely

    Any depiction of the ruins of Lordaeron is my guess.

    I don't think it would be Teldrassil or Undercity, as the Broken Shore wasn't the login for legion or the Blasted Lands weren't for WoD (rather the focus was the Dark Portal).

    Might indeed be a Warcraft 3 reference, similar to the cinematic being reminiscent of the Warcraft III cinematic faction battle but with a twist; instead of the Burning Legion being the lingering threat, this time the Old Gods are the common enemy replacing the felfire raining from the sky.

    2:17 is exactly how the BfA cinematic ended:


    This or something related to the wound of Azeroth?

    it will likely be the shattered gates of lordaeron.

    to continue with the gateway/portal theme. people liked the portal theme, and responded to that in after mists with the wod screen.

    Probably the gates of Lordaeron with fireballs/arrows flying back and forth over them.



    I also want to know what happens to the two felguards guarding the portal in the Legion login screen. I've grown quite fond of Bob and Greg.

    Warcraft III Reign of Chaos main menu is more about the Burning Legion, hence the infernals falling from the sky and the dark theme. The BfA login screen will probably be a battlefield with corpses lying on both sides.

    I want this so very badly! ^_^

    A war-torn Lordaeron could also work but probably won't be either as to not hurt someone's poor feelings. :P
