I'm not so sure if I will be getting it, THEN AGAIN by the time it comes out I'll have my awesome gaming desktop so I can see myself buying stuff just cos I know I'll be running it at 60 FPS on high graphics.
Your right, WoW was never at that caliber. It's legacy started mediocre and then got worse.DracoSuave said:You're either trolling, or ignorant of what Tolkienesque means.gideonkain said:It started all Tolkenesque
When you have a unit called the Meat Wagon [http://classic.battle.net/war3/undead/units/meatwagon.shtml], that, and this is a direct quote:
"Meat Wagons use a Meat-A-Pult? to fling Corpses at the enemy."
Tell me where THAT fits in Tolkeinesque fiction!
Is it right beside the sorceresses with sultry voices that croon sexily when you click on them repeatedly after turning the enemy Troll Witch Doctor into a sheep? That's okay, that witch doctor was too busy telling you, in his carribean accent, to 'Say hallo to is little fren'
Warcraft has always been cartoony. Always. The art is celshaded and stylised like that for a reason; it's rediculous, and always has been.
You just haven't been paying close attention to the goblin sappers have you?
They were in Warcraft III as mobs, in TFT's Orc Campaign and has (had? not sure if Cata removed it or not) a quest mentioning them in The Barrens in WoW. That's more than most of the "official" races have.al4674 said:Oh please. The pandaren race was always a joke in Warcraft lore and obviously most of you can't see the problem of them being a full scale race in the lore.
I mean seriously, what's next? A mystical race of swan people who talk like Mr Scrooge and Donald Duck? Come on, people!
Out of all the other races they could have used i.e the lost ones, nerubians, tuskarr, vrykul, black iron dwarves etc etc, they take the race that looks like the direct decendands of Po the Kung Fu panda.
Oh Gods, not the 'females love pandas' thing :/Hammartroll said:I think any fanboy's arguement is invalid because the Pandas, I bet, are ment to cater to the rather large female player base of WoW, because chicks love pandas.
Alright, after going half a fucking page about people bitching about the pandas being a joke race. No they weren't. Go play Warcraft 3, and you'll see OH LOOK it's the Pandaran Brewmaster.Combustion Kevin said:the players who started out at WoW don't know who these pandas are, and the earlier warcraft players think of it as a "joke-race".
Yea they have been used as "in jokes" for April Fools in WoW but that's not where they were introduced.dagens24 said:They seriously can't have expected a race which started as an April Fools joke (which clearly shows they don't even take them that seriously) to be taken seriously by the WoW community.
But what really kills it for me is the fact that Pandaren are able to be BOTH Alliance and Horde. I'm all for homogenization within reason but this is too far. Hell, why not let Orcs become Alliance members, or Night Elves become Horde members? Lore? If they can come up with lore justification for Blood Elves joining the Horde then they can just as easily come up with justification for Tauren Alliance members. Hell, why not get rid of factions all together?
