The arguement that WC3 had Pandas long before the move KFP doesn't hold much water. It's not about  who had Pandas 1st, but who did Pandas bigger. Right now, Kung Fu Panda is bigger than Pandarens..  




For example, In 95, Windows revolutionized home computing by adding a start button to their GUI. But Mac Apple had introduced that idea in MACs almost 10 years prior. But what do you think most people remember?

So it would have been OK to add the Pandaren in as the Alliance race in Burning Crusade? (which was the original plan so they say)

Because, you know, KFP hadn't come out yet...

That's not my arguement. I am talking about the people who ARE making the comparrisons between the two.




In 06, I cannot say what the arguemnt for or against would have been. But now, in 12, it's an issue for some.







 


As for me personally, I am a wait and see kinda guy. I wouldn't make my decissions until I saw it 1st hand.


The concept of playing a Panda doesn't thrill me, but It's not a deal breaker either.


The Monk Class, however does appeal to me.

Guess I'm stil trying to figure out what your arguement is.

It's not about who did it first, it's about who did it bigger....

but if WoW did it before KFP existed, wouldn't it be the biggest Panda-race ninja thing?

So then, by your logic, it'd be ok?

Because if that were the case the movie KFD would just be riding on WoW's coat tails right?

It takes a mature person to admit he likes Pokémon.


The people who constantly say "lol panda's & Pokémon are sooo childish" are the real immature people, because they still have that need to proove themselves.


If you really are mature, then you don't care if something is childish or not. If it's fun then you just play it and don't care about what others think.

 WHAT? Get a clue please & then post. Much better way to go around posting on forums.

 Btw, I don't get all the hate for Pandas... Is it because its an animal unique to asia? Idk whats the problem here, enlighten me!  They have been part of the WC lore since WC III... weird hey?

 On topic:

 Its all good, even though its nothing new.  But the point that stood out the most for me is the farm thing. Can you say farmville inspired cashshop incomming. :S

 Bah! I don't play WoW, so whatever floats their boat I guess.
 

Oh look at you trying to call people out on drug abuse because their opinion isn't the same as yours.
 

And yeah, I am pretty sure WoW's NA and Euro markets are bigger than it's Asian market.
 

Hey, if I am wrong, then point it out if you have the facts at your disposal.

Proof below... very easily obtainable data for he who seek before posting my good sir.

Here's a clue for ya.

Don't go around telling people to get a clue based on subjective posts.....Much better way to go around posting on forums.

What was subjective? On second thought never mind... I don't want you to dig yourself an even deeper hole.

(Makes you look like less of an @$$)  I see that your wits is on an epic level. /bow

Edit: Hey! You know what, Don't sweat it...I'll retract and rephrase my "Western Market" statement.  "I think Blizz is turning its back on non-Asian markets." There how's that?

OK, I think I get your question.


I am saying that now, in 2012, KFP does exist. And so now, People who play a Martial Arts Panda have to overcome the image that they are playing Kung Fu Panda. However, Had THey been added to TBC in 06, The concept would be reversed. People would watch KFP and say, "Hey look, my Monk" I remember seeing a cartoon once where a father took his son to the zoo and they saw a Cheeta in captivity and the caption said "Hey Dad! Look! Travel Form"

Pretty much.

Plus, after a certain age being accused with childishness tends to be rather amusing - if not outright sounding like a compliment. :P

Nice lol

Yes I do understand your point and it is a valid one.

There were, however, a lot of people who said the exact same thing about the Dranei and Blood Elves, and even more who said the exact same things about the Worgen.

WoW grew through BC and WOTLK.

But yes, it did shrink through Cataclysm.. but was it because of the furries (Worgen?)

Probably not, no - it was because of gameplay changes and probably fatigue/competition.

I don't think Pandaren are going to hurt WoW as much as people here say it will.

What is going to hurt WoW, or stengthen WoW, is the gameplay changes.

blizzard is very good at keeping most of there players. Even though cataclysm for teh most part sucked, ive played wow 6 yrs and until cataclysm never took a day off from it.


They look like they are getting back to some of the fun stuff that made wow cool to players like me and my gf, will it work i dont know, It may be to late to bring back some fans who just got so pissed at cataclysm they may never come back


that said im lookng forward to mop, also since gw2 isnt a sub game u can sub to wow and play gw2, I dont understand why people dont understand that.

Cata lost subs in part, because the majority of the expansion was invested in content that was meaningless to much of the player base. The addition of DKs in LK, proved that content 1-60 was now irrelevant. So when a huge amount of investment went into that content, many players couldn't appreciate it. Unless they leveld a new toon. Some did, many didn't. To a large extent much of Cata was a waste.

WoW is a great game for little kids, soccer moms and MMO rookies...and I mean that in a sincere way, thats their audience and this xpac is definitely in line with their client base.  McDonalds isnt going to start selling $15 burgers and WoW should not change their model in wow.  It is what it is.  A highly successful MMO that isnt for me.  But I hope y'all enjoy it !!

The fact this game will have pandas will make it absoulte that I will never play again.   I always felt wow to be rather childish and cartoonish (I'd like to see the age demographics in this game).  I can put up with a little bit of childish things in this game but your Pokemon analogy does nothing for me other than want to facepalm.


 


If WoW is the flagship MMO in the modern era then the MMO is dead to me.



I'm not knocking you at all Rekindle. I have just been wondering for months now why Pandas have been the childish cutoff for players. The average age for WoW players is 27...or atleast it was a couple years ago. Why when there are gnomes and goblins its fine, but Pandas are so childish? I don't care if it's a lump of crap, a daffodil, or a stick figure, if the gameplay is fun who cares.



For me there's two main reasons.


First is because of the Kung-fu panda movie. Every time I see or hear about Pandaren, I'm reminded of this movie. Not to say it was a bad movie... but it was a pretty immature movie in it's own right, considering it is meant for kids.


Second is because anthromorphized pandas are by far, not a standard fantasy race. Gnomes, goblins, etc, are. Even tauren are, (minotaur), as are Draenei (Demon variant).



You to have stop looking at things from western point of view. Pandas have been a big part of asian culture and have been making appearnces in movie, comics and games in atnhromorphized form. This expansions is heavily inspired from asia and that makes Panda very standard fanstasy race.


And i think you forgot all the cries and screaming when Draenai was introduced? and now it is a fantasy standard. yeah right.



 


I agree.  you need to stop looking at life through what you are a-- westerner, so you can fully understand and grasp that Panda Bears (like Teddy Bears) aren't for kids.  To help celebrate this launch I am going to buy a Teddy Bear. 


My oh my, when I first played WarCraft II in 1996, I would have never imagined, that dark, gritty world known as Azeroth would become this.

Ok, so I guess pandaren Brewmasters werent in the WarCraft Universe YEARS before KFP.  do some of you people even know any of the lore to this game before wow ?   shame that you dont, since it USED to be really cool -- before WoW that is.  its just a joke now.

The point isn't about history but perception.


It's like this. If you were to publish a a poll on an unbiased site neither towards gaming or animation in general. and you were to say


"Animated Panda fighting with Martial Arts"


How is the general population going to respond? Will they say, Oh those were in Warcraft 3 or will they say Po?


And I will agree with your Lore point. But for me, I was introduced to Warcraft through WoW back in 05 so I knew nothing of Warcraft Lore outside of WoW.


Again, since I cannot speak with all certainty, I'll ask. Did Blizzard not take some major deviations from it's own Lore from the Warcraft series to WoW?

They can put whatever they want in the game, but I will never re-sub.  For me, it wasn't the game itself that drove me away.  I played vanilla WoW and LOVED it.  Then I bounced between EQ2 and LoTRO for a while.  I popped in again shortly after Cataclysm and the changes to the terrain were pretty cool, although I really did not like the talent tree changes.  That was just a very stupid idea.


Anyway, the game itself is very fun.  Why I won't go back is because the community is just a bunch of foul-mouthed kiddies who pollute the channels with idiocy.  It really is an online babysitting substitute.  The parents let their kids log on and then they don't have to worry about them for hours, or days.


So, no, I won't go back because no matter what they do to improve the game the community will still remain.  Bad for me, good for the 8-14 year olds.

About the farm.  Give me the farm house... and we'll talk. 


About Pokemon.  I have multiple accounts.  I will be able to 'power level' and use this to my advantage?


World PvP... I will believe it when I see it.  And yes, I wanna see it.


...


We'll see about everything else that comes with the expansion...


For me, I simply wish they offered 'more choices'... for damned near everything in the game.  That would be real 'expansion' tome.
