I'm of the mind that currently, the races are a bit one-dimensional as it is. Ten commandments for characters are good, but races and factions are made up (or should be made up) of a vast collection...

Intriguing. I'm of the mind that the game mechanics have been the saving grace of Blizzard gaming for like 5 or 6 years now.

I agree. Pixar has in the past demonstrated a capability to tap into depth while still retaining a kiddish charm.

Do I think modern Blizzard has this capability? Do YOU?

My first impression: unimpressed.

As others have noted, its style is very Pixar-derivative, and it doesn't help that most current animation is also very Pixar-derivative. In 2014 - at least to me...

Well, at least with Warlords they're attempting to mine the lore for popular characters who hadn't been around for World of Warcraft. If Illidan (or alternate Illidan or whatever we end up calling...

Ah, I see. That wasn’t really my intent. Clessus was a character whose perspective I was legitimately interested in visiting. I think the rank-and-file soldier as witness still has some insights of...

Like I said, I really hope this isn't true, mostly because time travel is already becoming way too much of the narrative's focus. And also, pet battles with historical lore characters seems a bit...

I agree I just don't think that's much of an excuse. Especially considering some of the updated zones which are so half-assed I can't even. I was kind of hoping they would continue to update some of...

Wouldn't the number squish been the perfect time to implement that? The math is getting a huge overhaul anyway, and they would've had to address the huge gaps that follow every expansion...

That'd be nice, but I'm not placing any bets yet. A company the size of Blizzard buys precautionary trademarks at the drop of a hat.

Yeah Med'an was such a bad idea and his existence really fucks up everything around him. I remember a younger, more naive Nephalim seeing Garona was coming back and thinking "Cool! Awesome! Garona!...
