TWO WORLD ONE HOME

makes me laugh how the warcraft movie seems to gloss over the whole "orcs killed their own planet by sucking on the demon juice and genociding every other race that lived there" for "OUR WORLD IS DYINNNNG" from durotan

Are you seriously complaining they didn't cram all of this exposition into the movie's tagline or trailer? Really?

You people would bitch about the stupidest things when there's nothing serious to complain about.

There was a leaked shot of imprisoned draenei, though it was not in the trailer.

So female draenei can probably be portrayed with some makeup (like Garona is), but do you think male Draenei would be CGI'd or would they just be played by normal dudes? That'd make them significantly scrawnier than orcs though.

would probably need CGI for male draenei, and unlike most people now a days who have some kind of hatred for cgi, I see no problem with this

The trailer, leaked scenes and interviews make it pretty clear that Gul'dan (and arguably Blackhand as well) is a bad guy. Probably, alongside Medivh, even the bad guy. And one of the interviews sort of implied that he, together with his magics, is responsible for the state of Draenor. The thing is that they do not want to spoil that for the average moviegoers, so they leave it ambiguous.

As I'm sure you know, Gul'dan has been pretty much the most consistently evil and villainous character in the entire franchise, having even less redeeming qualities than Sargeras, Archimonde, Kil'jaeden, and Deathwing (the Old Gods may be an exception, but they also feel less like individuals with personalities to begin with). There's really no question as far as Gul'dan's portrayal is concerned. A real worry would be blaming everything bad the orcs did on Gul'dan.

Just a little correction. Will do, not did. What happened in the Gameverse does not apply to the Movieverse.

In the orc's defence, almost none of them actually knew why their world was dying. They first went genocidal on the Draenei because they were told that the Draenei were planning to do something that would kill them all. Hell, most orcs didn't even know about the demons behind the Shadow Council before they were on Azeroth.

My guess is if they used motion capture for the orcs, they would for the Dreanei.

What does this have to do with Legion again? I thought there was a separate movie thread.

O.o

That's not very hygienic. Wash your hands well afterwards if your going to do that.

The question was one more generally directed rather than just at you.

Just going back to the 5 Year Timeskip thing; if it's true, it's a fucking stupid decision.

I agree having a new "World Ending Threat" every 12-18 month is retarded, but 5 YEARS with zero changes to the world (Gameplay and Lore) is laughable.

If they want to do a timeskip like that, they need to invest in the game with phasing and new quests. We all know they won't do that, period, so they shouldn't even consider a timeskip of that size.

Here is a for you, Mr. Frog.

Even if there is no timeskip at all, we already 4 years with zero changes to the world, as the old continents are in the exact same state as they were during Cataclysm. Using the "if there is a timeskip, world should be changed, otherwise it is completely retarded" as an argument is completely senseless by itself, because whether there is a timeskip or not, without any changes to the world, it will be completely weak and dull anyway.

Even a silly excuse like "Stormwind's bureaucracy made it impossible to build it for 5 years. Humans, am i right?" would do it for me.

Blizzard's utter lack of care when it comes to immersion and consistency is pathetic, the only thing worse is the drones that defend it.

Even so, I stand by my comment, even with their usual "standards" 5 YEARS without a single change to the world is laughable.

At this rate, I will roll my eyes out of their place.

Do you understand what the words dull and weak mean? It means that I am implying it is already completely "retarded", as you have beautifully put it. Now, as I believe that you are not braindead, I am pretty much positive you have discussed this to no end, as it is something that would bother even a lobotomized chicken, but as it is completely irrelevant to the point of mine, there was not need to bring it up.

Now, since you completely missed the point, let me reiterate. The point is that the world is completely senseless anyway, so having a time skip will not make things any worse. And having four additional years of nothing does not matter either, as most chances should and would happen in the first four years, not in those four years of peace time that would follow.

ayyyyy you're not assed anymore!

Though take my advice, maybe post that in the more relevant thread and possibly calm down a bit more with the caps lock so you don't risk another assing.

So while I'm someone who appreciates the Warcraft lore and the importance of immersion/consistency in the game world, I guess I have to be one of those mindless drones who are going to defend Blizzard on this one.

Immersion and consistency alone aren't going to get the 5 million people who quit during Warlords playing again. I would love for Blizzard to improve their in-game storytelling and I've seen many things between Pandaria and up to Legion that show they can pull off some cool story concepts. But looking back instead of forward really makes no sense for Blizzard considering the state of the game right now. In my opinion, it wasn't the lore that made Warlords of Draenor a failure. And I think a majority of players are fine with lore and story taking a backseat as long as Blizzard gives us the gameplay we desire.

I'm sorry it triggers some people that the Stormwind Park is still fucked, but can those people not understand that there are more important things that need to be addressed? There is no gameplay value to the Stormwind Park so unless they shoehorned some shitty artifact quest into its revival, why would they spend the time redoing it? I just want Blizzard to give me a reason to consistently log in and have fun with the time I spend on the game.

Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms are stuck in Cataclysm. A time skip is not going to change that; they are 4 years behind the lore already, making them 9 years behind isn't going to feel much different.
