For me the only big negative point is that the movie was too short, so sometimes, it feels rushed, but perhaps only for people who doesn't know anything about warcraft lore. (And yes, the lore has been modified, but not too much - The biggest change is for me the flying Dalaran, but perhaps it's for a more impressive destruction in the future? Arthas please.)
And, and, and, the "jokes" things during important / battle part, i don't like this (Like Legolas doing skateboard, no...). Even if it's really "Blizzard-esque" to have some jokes in their games, i don't really like them when it comes to important parts.
I hate 3D movies, IMAX 3D was the only choice for me to see it, so it's annoying to pay 5 more euros for something barely noticeable beside the candy advertisement before the movie. (And having to put 3D glasses on top of my usual glasses is painful).
About CGI, it was really impressive, the spells were awesome, the orc were awesome too (Durotan's eyes ), it's not shocking at all (Perhaps the High Elves, they were weird, compared to... Antonidas? Glowing eyes is not for everybody), even when paired with real actors. All the environnement are clearly recognizable (For a player), even the music.
Definitely a really awesome movie, maybe not the "best ever" (For the scenario, it's not a Witcher / Baldur's gate type of huge story), but for a warcraft fan, it's clearly worth the price, and i will probably watch it again (To catch more details !).
The easter eggs are awesome too. (The... gameplay reference one made me laugh - like all the theater -)
Gul'dan is a fucking beast. <3
EDIT : I read a "review" comparing this movie to Immigration (White people being invaded by... colored people), and be a hidden pro-Trump movie.
What. The. Fuck.
Yeah i think it was SKY or BBC who compared it. Utterly retarded.
Unfortunately we don't have IMAX cinemas where i live in DK, so i can only dream of that.
Though you just made me realize just how much i would like a Baldurs Gate movie.. WtF
Really depends what you are looking for. I would not recommend coming back to this game. If you miss wow nostalgia? Try out hearthstone. Warriors are still armoring up faggots (control war now is like letting prots into arenas) and mages/rogues still think they take the most skill for some odd reason. You will get your wow flavor right there.
If you are just looking for something fun to do then I'd try netflix, jumping rope, or gardening.
anyone that still plays this game has the self respect of a battered housewife so don't expect them to treat you with anything but the abuse that they've been treated with. blizzard is ABUSING its fucking WoW subscribers at this point and yet the people still paying for this terrible game (wow token or otherwise) sit here and turn the other cheek and nervously smile. get up off your fucking knees and stop funding this garbage you cheap whores
everybody is a whore, just some of us have some dignity
i dont entirely understand the point of playing a bc server. i imagine you guys are just gonna arena and each calss
had like 5 buttons they push frequently back then. if you want to play with 5 buttons why not just play legion.
im not even sure one could argue that the game is more skillful in bc.
vanilla i can understand because arena wasnt a thing but is there another reason to play a bc server? the pve sure in the fuck wasnt that great
this post isnt meant to start a flame war or anything im just curious on your guys reasoning
the core mechanics of classes make sense and actually work, whereas they don't on live (and haven't since cata, but mainly post cata)
every class doesn't have 5 instant cast short defensive cds to use to get out of trouble, every class doesn't have self healing, every class doesn't have a gap closer, every class doesn't have 3 different cc breaks alongside their 5 different instant ccs. a single dps can kill a healer by himself, or the healer is capable of killing the dps. there were a lot of imbalances back then, but they didn't matter as much because the way the game played out was fun and made sense
people talk a lot about ability pruning these days which is an issue, but to me it's not the main issue that exists. it's the entire philosophy behind how classes are meant to interact with each other and the gameplay in general. there was an actual structure behind class roles previously, and it's literally missing now
i don't think tbc arena was particularly skillful, it just actually made sense and the way classes interacted with each other was fun. arena now isn't skillful and it sure as fuck doesn't make sense or is fun
so i guess that's why i want to play bc again, because i like playing wow the way it was designed to be played by its original creators instead of by the people who work on the game now who have a shitty philosophy towards how it's supposed to work
i've grown up playing this game and i've massively enjoyed it through multiple iterations of it so i'm not afraid of change or progression, but they've completely lost sight of what made the game popular in the first place and continue to move away from that direction
You do realize that taking jabs like this at core mechanics of classes is what brought us to WoD, where dueling is all but alive, solo plays in arena barely exist anymore, etc?
The simpler classes become to play, and the more limited they are in what they can do, the more this game turns to shit.
I'd say what's pathetic here is you and your shitty opinion. Nerfing casters' core mechanics and buffing melee mobility/interrupts/CC is what got us to MoP/WoD levels of retardation, and then the power creep starts to happen where everyone starts getting everything.
You people whine that the current game is a game of rock paper scissors where wins are determined by comps in question, well this will only get further encouraged by having core mechanics nerfed like this. Make no mistake, I don't give a shit about Mages, but how does that saying go, the one about your mentality?
"They came for the Jews, but I wasn't a Jew, so I didn't care.
They came for Muslims, but I wasn't a Muslim, so I didn't care.
They came for Buddhists, but I wasn't a Buddhist, so I didn't care.
They came for Christians, but I wasn't a Christian, so I didn't care.
Then they came for me, but there was nobody left to help me."
Yeah, Mages are OP for the majority of WoD. Warlocks were OP for most of MoP. Your Fear got further raped, it started breaking on nothing, you lost a CC talent row, you lost curses, God knows what fucking else.
You might be OP for a while, they nerf you, you're still decentish, but after a while you're not. At that time, they will NEVER revert core mechanics nerfs, even the ones which make no sense ( like the deep change ). Are you following me, or are you too dense?
Honestly, there is arguably no way of proving who "the best" is of a certain class, as everyone has their own opinion and view the game from their point of view.
- Good knowledge of his class.
- Open to discuss between arenas of real life or any no-WoW theme.
- Do not rage after a lose, being grumpy is allowed.
- I met him/her in real life.
- I appreciate him/her in real life. (Really important, people can be different in real life, good or bad)
- Not arrogant, not condescending with other players.
- Do not have a mage in his character list (The previous point is highly bound to this one). Unless it's his very first character.
- Appreciate dirty jokes, comments, or inappropriate ones like i usually do.
I only met one guy with all this points and we became real life friends. Sad for me he stops playing mid mop.
(It's not you Volkovitch, you have a mage too. Fire, ungeared, and unplayed but mage anyway. Grmbl)
