Smokeysong writes: Just from this trailer alone - mixed; not ground-breaking. The most exciting part to me was the new player/race possibilities. From the previous rumors they aren't going to allow the combo I want, but the removal of the artificial race/class barriers is overall a very, very good thing. Thank you Blizzard Devs!

brenth writes: I hope they put in some cooperative (public works)projects and interactable terrain and climbables ship fights would be cool too and things like slippery ice or water slides row boat fishing ,, sailing,, tunneling! they could do whole arcs on just building bridges and tunnels between areas not to mention the security problems the players would have to deal with wow is too static need to be able to shift some mob types and ownerships to make it feel like players make a difference not just a theme park ride!

firstage writes: I truly think that Blizzard have outdone themselves this time, that expansion sounds promising I’ve quitted wow around 3 months ago and the current patch didn’t really encourage me to come back.

CujoSWAoA writes: I really don't see what people like about that game. Talk dramatic all you want, the game is still as much fun as getting out a box of old action figures and slapping them together for control and rulership of your living room. Sun Aug 23 2009 11:04AM Report
csthao writes: One thing they did right with the trailer is not making it a CG. Everything you see there is in game. I think thats why it is more appealing. CG's look nice but isnt in game and has a false perspective. WoW made it just right, but still wont drag me back in though. Sun Aug 23 2009 1:13PM Report

solareus writes: I never seena game company rip off more ideas from other mmos like they are doing now. People really need to wake up and understand that blizzard can't even come up with an original idea with in the mmo genre. I fined this video appalling and a complete disregard for other developers with in the industry. As well as some the concept art completely copying what Turbine has already developed, War Hammer, and DAoC. If there was ever a time to start filing for plagiarism, the time is almost at hand.

This new expansion doesn't look anything special, its not changing the game mechanics in any way just adding a few pretty things here and there.

MMO_REVIEWER writes: "rikilii writes: Meh. Not bad, but then again, nothing really new or truly interesting. I'm going to predict that this is where WoW jumps the shark. " agreed. It looks almost like they put a new coat of poly on the game and tore some things up. Adding new races is cool, but unless they add some depth to the races im not sure it will do much for the game. They finally updated their outdated water shaders and gave it some reflectivity. The water use to be the ugliest feature of WoW. Hopefully some of the new features they're adding will add some thing new to the game tha everyone can enjoy. Tue Aug 25 2009 2:41AM Report

Warlaorm writes: New player race/class combos = silly. Rules as to what you can and can't do make the pretend world seem more real. Think about it.........a Tauren Rogue. I hope Tauren Rogues tiptoe in stealth mode, and make that tingle tingle tink sound you hear in cartoons. To me WoW = McDonalds: Millions served but, really, I won't eat there. The first release was a great game. I am less impressed with each expansion though. Mon Aug 31 2009 2:24PM Report
reef22 writes: Like many other have said already, this is Blizzard's attempt to "counter attack" all other new generations of MMO that's coming out like Aion, GW2, FF14. I'm sure the hard-core Wow player would appreciate it but seriously, I think Blizzard should just drop Wow and make a new Wow 2 or something. Why don't they want to utilize the new technology to make the game? I don't care what you say, the graphics of the current Wow is still the same as the day it came out years ago. Why don't they make something more nicer looking? Mon Aug 31 2009 3:44PM Report

This game has been screwed since BC. Mon Sep 07 2009 5:00AM Report
