    Yet.
    I 100% believe there are people just waiting for the 'overwhelming' negativity to pass so playing defense force is easier.

    I like how they did all the worst things in one go:
    -Parallel to Deathwing's memed laser blast
    -blatant LOTR imagery and melody, without much besides that
    -Too short and underwhelming for a sense of closure
    -Used their worst/cheapest cinematic type for their finale

    Oh you mean spells that are worthless and add next to nothing to the game? Yeah, I stand by my view that Shadowlands will tank.

    Check the BfA "review" thread. Check the 8 usernames who voted this as a "good" expansion. It's all the usual defenders. Yet they're dead silent in that thread too.

    Possible this cinematic tipped them over the edge?

    Thats one of the things about the Warcraft universe; not all of the protagonists are good guys.

    Doesn't mean they aren't heroes.

    Hero != Good.
    True...

    it feels like we killed some big bad dog.

    yeah. emotionless. empty... hollow.

    Clearly someone high on the cinematic team saw Reign of Fire and was like "What if it was the dragon that jumped instead?"

  10. #430
    Yeah look, I defend alot of what blizzard does story wise because I’ve enjoyed a lot of what they’ve put out recently... but this was seriously underwhelming

    Onto Shadowlands please

    I refuse to believe that senior management on the wow team looked at the cinematic and gave the green light for this to be acceptable.

    Why would they care? They have more Sylvanas body pillows to sell.

    Wrathion went full Prince of Persia.

    What if N'zoth was neutered from the get go and wasn't really a threat. The twist is that Wrathion was the true villain of the expansion and all we did was follow his plan to trap N'zoth so he could staby stab.

    As for all the rest I didn't really take issue to anything. A little lack luster but not really that bad. I think people just have a built up expectation with how good the cinematic department has been the last few years with stuff. I also wonder if there is a mythic component we are missing as of yet. If there is not 8.3.5 they might wrap up more in the pre-patch. Or maybe they just have some epilogue type zone built in but it doesn't unlock until raid finder fully unlocks.

    If if there is nothing else I'm not disappointed. Just not overly impressed. So no hate/dislike.

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

    Why does Azshara have the dagger if she's a prisoner?
    She hid it somewhere.

    Even Deathwing had a cooler cinematic.. not to mention how this is THE SAME cinematic but WAY LESS COOL.. pretty sad end to the first fully unleashed old god.
    1 Boss.. 1 fight... 1 end.. no continuation to the next expansion..

    Instead, we are just getting some more sylvanas. Woohoo. Is it too hard for the biggest MMO to have a good ending for once? Is it trying to copy Star Wars or what?

    As much as I absolutely loathe the in game cutscene. We don't know if it didn't show a continuation into Shadowlands...what if it was all a dream, what if we actually died and that's what leads into Shadowlands and how we got to Shadowlands in the first place. We really have no idea at this point.

    Either way the lack of cinematic was an absolute disgrace and a disservice to the game, the fans, and the franchise as a whole.

    I haven't posted on this site in a long ass time but this expansion and cinematic was such absolute trash I just had to log on and share my thoughts, which thankfully many people share here.
