    What did you expect of this lazy patch

    6.2 trailer came out in the same week as 6.2.

    7.2 trailer came out 5 days before.

    7.3 came out on Patch release date.

    So calm your horses.

    You meant the people? There are a few in this thread already.
    "Says who" meaning Blizzard, or a representative of. Unless they've officially said there will be no trailer then it's just shxt-talking.

    I have no idea what is shxt-talking(?).

    And this is just a thread about that we haven't seen the trailer patch yet and that it would be shame if we didn't get to see it at all.

    Because it's a filler patch with leftover filler 'plot'.

    But I expect they'll show one off on patch day. Probably the Alliance and Horde peace treaty one that was datamined.

    It does feel a little like the artists and marketing people have abandoned BFA for Shadowlands and 8.3 is what you get when a bunch of system designers make a patch.
    Everything seems very under the radar and looks a bit copy pasted. Which is a shame for one of the coolest and hyped up places in the lore.
    Maybe that approach makes sense when most of your playerbase seems to only play for the first couple of month of an expansion anyways. Every dollar spend on 8.3 is a dollar less to create some shadowland hype.

    But yeah, I also think it's a bit early to declare the trailer lost. It might still hit on patch day.

    Yes because 25 minutes of high end CGI + more ingame cinematics than ever before is 0 effort for this xpac.

    I'm sorry, is the expansion after Shadowlands on Tuesday?


    Oh and a tiny edit, I wonder if the people in this thread will post here once the trailer is out and admit they're wrong, and that they've learned from it - or perhaps they'll never return again.
    Are you going to if there isn't a trailer?

    Yeah clearly the artists abandoned BFA, the guys who answer phones threw together this (absolutely gigantic) patch in a couple weeks and they got Bob in finance to do all the new art.

    Hyperbole at its finest, folks.

    Do we really need a cinematic for that cringefest? The datamined dialogue was painful enough to read.

    My guess was that Blizzard is putting their energy into the front part of every expansion because thats where most of the money is. I didn't say anything about 0 effort for the entire xpac. If anything I would say that BFA probably had one of the biggest marketing/cinematic pushes to create hype of all the xpacs. It`s just 8.3 that seems to be somewhat abandoned by the art/marketing guys. Probably because they are preparing for the next big push when shadowlands comes out.

    Dude, I litteraly wrote, who I think made most of the patch. No need hyperbole up my post to then complain about it being hyperbolic.
    Yes, It's a giant patch. It's also a patch I'm hoping to enjoy, because of all it's system improvements. But it has a lot less new art than you would expect from a content patch. And the media push for it (so far) has been pretty quiet. Whch, I think, is a shame, because I think it looks pretty cool.

    Unfortunately yes. Hopefully Baine and Anduin will finally kiss and propose to one another.

    Validating all the memes about them.

    they announced key art 8.3?

    Ofc there could still be a trailer, but it would be pretty late. Still, i hope there is one. Better late than never.
    If there isnt one, you can actually point out who is a mindless blizzard sheep right now, since only those would defend this. Even small patches got trailers in the past, and for such a (lore-wise) big and important patch to not get one is fckn hilarious, and shows how many fcks they give.
    I mean come on, people are seriously trying to defend the big ending patch of an addon possibly not getting a trailer? lmao
    Yeah, lets hope its just coming up late
    The crooked shitposter with no eyes is watching from the endless thread.

    From the space that is everywhere and nowhere, the crooked shitposter feasts on memes.

    He has no eyes to see, but he dreams of infinite memeing and trolling.

    Even fucking 8.1 had it, very weird that 8.3 didn't. Maybe they just didn't have enough non spoilery cinematic footage to use for a trailer since there's only 2 cinematics in 8.3 one of which is the ending.

    Since it has dialogue to go with it, there won't be a cinematic for it. The only 2 cinematics in 8.3 that we know of are Wrathion/Anduin reunion and N'zoth ending.

    Did they announce that there wouldn't be one? What a wasted opportunity to not do a trailer centered around a released Old God, so much potential to make it epic.

    Wrathion/Anduin reunion really needed a cinematic.
