And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

I'm not saying MoP wasn't well done, it was... it just entirely lacked any sort of power.

MoP - Has a narrative to it that isn't just following one character. And the fight scenes are amazing. The real sense of what the expansion is about is really shown while also being entertaining.

Wrath - Symbolism and Warcraft 3 nostalgia work together to make it a Warcraft fanboy's wet dream.

Burning crusade - Music, Illidan reveal and the start with the Dreanei was amazing, and the CGI environments were great.

Cataclysm - Had some really awesome scenes of destruction, and the final reveal shot of Deathwing's full body felt like the end of the world had come (but was kind of ruined by the fact that Stormwind just kind of gets up and scrapes itself off after).

Vanilla - Least story driven, still impressive landscapes and brings back vanilla nostalgia, but would have to put it last.

A little off-topic, but if you had the chance, how would you have done the cinematics differently?

Cata : Deathwing burns Stormwind, while people run around screaming in terror.
MoP : Naval battle while Pandaren watch from the shore. Ally, and Horde survivors continue to fight on the shore, and Pandaren get caught in the crossfire.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.

Wrath was amazing story oriented. MoP was so too but didn't have the benefit of the heavy background with Arthas/Terenas, Chen Stormstout being there though was an amazing touch. Vanilla was good for introducing the races. Cataclysm gave some story about how Deathwing came out but it was more rawr rage than anything else, plus the soundtrack was good. BC was just a repeat of Vanilla it seemed like without really adding anything unique other than "You are not prepared".

1. Wrath of the Lich King

It's a whole story rather than just random scenes like Vanilla and BC, great narrator and music.

2. Vanilla

It's the first one. Great narrator and scenes.

3. Cata

The music and voice could have some improvement.

4. MoP

Funny but not epic.

5. BC

It's just got randoms scenes and a lot worse than Vanilla.

Just not as much of a fan of the battle montages, but don't think I'm saying the vanilla or BC cinematics are bad. I still like them, just not as much as the others! Also MoP and Wrath are sooooooooooo close, I only gave it to MoP because I like new shinies lol.
