Stormwind looks too small.

In one book the old Stormwind is described to be so large that if you took a Gryphon and hoovered in the sky above the center you could see the city stretch out in all direction without end.

I don't know, it looked big enough in the Skies of Azeroth video, about the size of medieval Paris. And that shot is clearly the exact same Stormwind.

I have no preliminary feelings about the movie one way or the other, but that tagline is awful.

I don't even understand it.

Two worlds - Draenor and Azeroth.

One home - Azeroth. Draenor is dying and so the orcs must leave for Azeroth as a last resort. Both humans and orcs will be forced to share a single home and this will likely lead to the movie's conflict.

Idk, makes sense to me.

Whether it makes sense or not it's still goofy.

It doesnt make sense and its goofy.

It's like that to try to spin the orcs as THE GOOD GUYS. When we all know that they're not and they want azeroth for themselves.

The tagline should be "Orcs and Humans".

see i don't mind it being orcs vs humans because the basis is Warcraft 1 and that was what it was in Warcraft 1

what i don't like is the alliance suddenly turning up in a WC1-based game

Whether are the orcs trying to make Azeroth their home out of conquest, need for survival, or both (which is what we actually get) is completely irrelevant for the tagline to make sense. Which it does. But I agree with Aldrius that it is goofy.

Fully agreed. I wasn't being sarcastic. Orcs and Humans really should be the movie tagline.

That tagline would alienate customers who don't know shit about the lore, and think the movie will feature Alliance NE/Draenei/Pandas, Naga, naked Sylvanas.

They already are alienated. And honestly, trying to feature every playable race in the movie would really make it rushed and therefore shit. That's what makes me optimistic about Warcraft. It starts slowly, with the core elements of that world.

Nothing inherently bad about conquest.

The bridges look huge and in effect makes the city look smaller.

At this point it can't be worse than the game! Which is embarrassing.

But there is something inherently bad about the way the Orcs make conquest, which is just slaughtering everyone regardless of the age, gender, profession or whatever.

I can't believe none of you noticed the high elf in the shot.

Also, I get the feeling Orgrim is not gonna wear the Doomplate very often. In fact, he's probably gonna wear it only once, in the final battle. Which kinda diminishes its significance.

Blackhand is wearing what appears to be modified "Doomplate", so I guess Orgrim will take it and reforge it once he becomes a warchief by killing him.

Anyway, I like they are going back to to roots by giving the elves eyes without pupils/iris.

FWIW I like the poster, especially the blue blood spatter on Lothar's face.

You can take prisoners, spare civilians, etc. Did you really not know this was possible?
