where did they get the idea of a panda with kung fu??

 @gamefreak215jd It did remind me of that as well. Warcraft 3's cinematic had a much darker undertone, just another sign that Blizzard is becoming more casual with their content by the year.

Haha sweet , always loved Blizzard cinematics.  I don't play Wow but I always liked the Panda in Warcraft 3.

The cinematic trailers were always some of the best parts of WoW.  Whenever I would get down in my leveling, I would watch the opening cinematic and it would inspire me so much.  This... This makes me glad I quit WoW.  It went from so hardcore, to so lighthearted and airy.

this trailer kinda reminds of kungfu panda.there's both humor and a crazy martial arts panda.

this is kinda like the intro from WC3.orcs and humans fighting then suddenly interrupted by the giant ball of fire who kills them both.except here the guy who interferes is actually a good guy.and he doesn't kill them.

Omg, all these nerd rages and weirdos. Its a RP game my friends, your already playing as Elves, Dwarves, etc. and its apart of the lore dweebs. I love WoW, but i love partying and WoW takes a lot of commitment if you want to be good. Ive been gone since Wotlk, but ill be getting this one. The advancements they made through the talent system and all the new changes seem fantastic to me. Theres just soooo much to choose from and do its exciting! And if 9 million players is dying, then living must be insane. You all sound like haters, cause honestly imo this is the greatest game ever made, it just has simply every element you look for in any game.

Funny how so many people are bashing the game because of pandaren and haven't even seen the amount of content this expansion has. Keep living in ignorance.

 

By the way pandaren were in warcraft 3 way before Kung Fu Panda so please be quiet.

if ppl knew warcraft story and they didnt heard of warcraft from wow they wouldnt be dissapointed with panda , srsly wow graphics and mood always been a litle too colorfull and kinda childish and pandaren added nothing to it . If ppl see them and think "kung fu panda" they should know that "kung fu panda" idea was taken from pandaren in wow... One thing to flame at blizzards developers and another thing to flame at warcraft story

wow noobs complaining about pandarens that were in WCIII the game wow is based on.  fail.  mop is actually better than cata by far the problem is wow is old and people are burned out on the format overall. wow is at the stage EQ1 was when wow came out.

I have to agree that i am skeptical about this next expansion.

However if it gets good reviews by us the fans, people will come back to it and all will be forgiven. 

Personally it's hard for me to commit to paying the monthly fee.

LOL 02:29 was awesome, I wonder if blizzard shouldnt ditch the game a give it a shot at making a lengthy CGI movie, no not something for kids something darker something that can be watched and taken seriously.

I gotta give blizzard a big hand for turning a pretty awesome game to joke of a game with this expansion.  Makes me wonder whose fault this lies with when it fails hard to what their expectations are...

Great trailer. but I kept thinking it would have been more appropiate to have Jack Black do the voice over

JESUS CHRIST GAMESPOT! Use Youtube to host your vids or come up with an adequate solution. Been sat here for 5 minutes trying to stream this terrible trailer!

Wow. Disappointing compared to all their other expansion trailers. It's like the effort is gone. Feels kind of empty emotionally and cheap compared to before. Ah well. A good thing can't last forever I guess.

I don't know about you guys, but I think Pandas fit in well in the WoWverse considering it aready has Space Goats, Walking Cows, and everyone's favorite football: Gnomes.

Blizzard should seriously start making cinematics for other game companies for the right price.

this is overdone traying to pump some fresh air into allredy dead corpse wich is now WoW , wayst off time Blizz should focus on something fresh , new

After this I really wonder what will the next expansion bring...  Seeing some comment below, I must admit that Warcraft promoted Pandas it's no doubt, still... Why couldn't they just bring in Caverns of time expansion and go back to what really matter in the warcraft domain.

And for those who to tend to QQ about everything - well sadly your kind QQed bout the lore being to hard or the op classes and well let's face it, that's what killed WoW.

damn... i must admit... i hated it. the first blizz cinematic that i didnt like ever. i knew merging with activision was a bad, bad idea the second i read about it. wow is going downhill ever since. ccc blizzard, ccc.

I admit Blizzard can really make cinematics but i personally can't wait for WoW to die the game was epic while it was still in its first expansion with each next expansion the game began to crumble in my eyes as the best mmo, with its over recycling of items and mobs with its over simplifying the game and that is only the tip of the iceberg the list goes on but as long as people continue to play this sorry excuse for a game as it is now there won't be any huge innovations in the genre, after all the game is not made for the players its made to make money for the company that created it ...

 @Taffelost Once upon a time there was a game called Warcraft 3 and you know what... You were actually able to play with those pandas. Even before Kung Fu Panda. Crazy isn't it? Those pandas were a neutral faction and could be hired if my memory is still any good.

 @scoobdog02 720p? My internet can be only partly to blame considering I can stream 720p on Youtube without any problems.

From what I remember the panda was a joke you activated the level by flying chickens. If that isn't a joke then jokes on me.
