    I am excited because once private server people get a hold of the Warband code they can back port it and finally have AI groups in all versions of WoW.

    Many words I'd use to describe him personally but charismatic isn't even close to one of them.
    No but he has improved a lot over the years, was a great raid leader but pretty awkward in the corporate social stuff. Looks quite a bit more comfortable now.

    This.

    Pretty excited for all this, love much of the vibe i get from the shown materials so far, but the 1 armed black chick and the bearded dwarven ladies leave me wary of further politically inspired abberations that might needlessly bring down the quality.

    Still, good first impression so far, though i hope they don't overuse the humanised nerubians as the nerubian' monstrous pluriformity is precisely what makes them awesome.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    They had a perfect opportunity to say: "Let's delve into Delves," and they walked right up to the bat and ... didn't say it. My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

    That asian girl's voice...like nails on chalkboard...did her mom have the biggest valley girl accent?...

    She sounds like she is making love to each spoken word... *shudders*

    the English language should sue her for defamation or something!..

    Nobody should use californian accent...because outside california it makes you sound like you work for OnlyFans or something... don't ever let her speak again plz. I'd take a southern accent over hers any day...even though that's not so pleasant either..

    It's clear English isn't her first language. For a non-native speaker, she did fine. She's clearly hyped about the product and the team she's in charge of and she communicated her ideas pretty well. It takes a lot of courage to do something like this that is going to be viewed by millions of people so I think that alone is worth commending.

    What are u? Her coach? She spoke without nervousness, very calmly so I doubt she wants or needs peptalk.

    Too many californians work at blizzard, I wish company would relocate to some other state...

    - - - Updated - - -

    How do I explain this better..

    If this had not been about talking, but something else, like eating.

    She would be the person loudly smacking her lips everytime she had food in her mouth. She seems oblivious to how she comes across...

    That reminds me of this one elderly thai woman at work, everytime she eats fruit, its the stuff nightmares is made of...

    He just wanted to complain about a woman. Look how many words he's spent on just that, and only 3 vaguely on the content of the video (but more a reply to your comment). Best to just let him get on with it and not engage.

    Holy fuck go outside, this is pathetic. You have literally made an idea of a horrible woman in your mind simply off the fact she is an Asian Woman.
    Grow the fuck up incel.

    So manly and mature of you... Funny enough, a lot of people like Ihavewaffles are married with children.

    Honestly, as much as I hate everything woke. The one-armed black chick looks badass. And real dwarf women have beards, ffs! Even Tolkien said so.

    Yes, telling a sexist/racist to fuckoff is very mature/manly

    And yeah, I wonder why divorce rates are so extremely high.

    oh also yeah she is a half elf, and a descendent of lothar actually!
    And yeah, dwarves with beards are based, let women have facial hair, cause it is not a 'gender" thing, it is just a thing, and in a lot of cultures, a sign of power. To be able to have a long beard is a status symbol.

    Yeah, calling people you don't know names, because they dared criticize somebody, is very mature/manly.

    Divorce rates in the US. Probably for the same reason school shootings are so common. American culture is fucked up in many ways.

    Well, human females can't really grow beards. Aside occasional mutation causing them to. But dwarf women should definitely have beards. Otherwise they're just fat halflings.

    Edit: if half-elves come to the game as an allied race, Blizzard will earn a lot of money of me running race changes.
