    While I've been saying for several years that I wished they'd make WoW miniatures, this isn't exactly what I had in mind.

    This board game seems incredibly Alliance centric in terms of characters. The people responsible for this should feel bad.

    Where is Garrosh? He was the Horde's main leader in the Northrend campaign. Has a much bigger role than Thrall.
    And Muradin is there but not Saurfang? They have the same role in the raid.
    And Sylvanas? All she did was betray the Horde with Putress and Varimathras, leading to the Wrathgate incident. Why is she a hero in this game?
    Who is the no name Blood Elf? Liadrin? Shouldn't even be there.

    What a joke.

    $60usd on the US store and £60gbp on the UK store...

    Should be more like 45 quid.

    The art style looks totally bland and lazy. I wonder if Blizzard is ever going to upgrade their art team from 2002 of W3 release.

    As someone who has spent a ton of money on Kickstarter board games, this is truly bland. At least they could've painted the miniatures.
    But wait, that is concept art so the real minis are going to look much worse.

    I never understand this line of thinking of being outraged for the sake of being outraged of something. Context matters...

    She was there more then Vol'jin, she was part of the quel'delar questline.
    better then vol'jin appearing... literally no where.

    She made a cameo during the Quel'dalar questline without actually being directly involved in it whatsoever.

    Vol'jin meanwhile participated in the Battle for the Undercity, which was one of the most important battles of WotLK.

    I'd say they had about an equal amount of relevance by that standard

    Vol'jin appeared in the Battle for the Undercity and Zalazane's Fall which both occured during WotLK. The "story" even references the Zalazane's Fall event in the Cataclysm pre-launch events with Garrosh using it the retaking of a few small islands as an insult to Vol'Jin.

    Role or presence in the expansion isn't a factor since Garrosh does not appear in the board game but was the Overlord of the Horde's armies in Northrend.

    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..."

    It's based on the Pandemic board game. So it's not very similar to either Monopoly nor Risk.

    Pandemic is a cooperative game, where players work together against the game mechanics to achieve a set goal. The opposition is a set of rule-based mechanics, usually with some element of randomness (dice rolls, deck of cards) to determine what the game does on its turn. Here's my best guess at how WotLK is overlayed on top of the Pandemic game: A group of scientists (heroes) are working to stop a disease (scourge) outbreak from spreading from a few locations to the entire world. Players have a few specific abilities they can use to decrease the amount of disease (scourge) at a specific location and move between locations. On the game's turn, new disease outbreaks(scourge) appear in the world, and already present disease outbreaks (scourge) increase in number. Players win when the outbreak is brought under control (Lich King is defeated - slight variation from Pandemic mechanics); players lose when too many cities are completely overrun by disease (scourge).

    The base pandemic game is pretty popular and relatively easy to learn. It looks like the WotLK version has some extra mechanics (might be optional?).

    This genuinely looks like a fun game. Pandemic is already a fun game, and with a Warcraft twist it could be even better.

    I just hope there's room for expansions or fan mods to add in more heroes. Sucks that there isn't a wider selection, especially with how famous certain heroes were during Wrath, like Saurfang, Darion, and Garrosh.

    Is it because I've had sex, the reason I don't understand what this is?

    You better not look at death knight ability names then if this game concept upsets you.
