If that's what you want, just rewatch the WoW Classic cinematic.

Yea, I mentioned that I really like the original and that TBC was my favorite because you get to see both the characters and the villain, though I do think you should see the villain really DO something which is what I do really like about the cata trailer.

I swear, kids these days...

One of the best villains this story has ever had who happens to be a gigantic dragon who is so evil, he had to have plates bored into his flesh to keep him from melting bursts through the maelstrom and shatters the entire world in a cataclysm of fire. Everything has been changed, he becomes a more active menacing villain by killing you numerous times before we even realize what happened, he destroys all the pleasant and unpleasant memories we had of this world, millions die, the elements war in our backyards, dogs and cats ar eliving together... and it's not cool enough.

The WoW community is, generally speaking, a bunch of bitchy little girls.

Fixed. Because it's not just a WoW issue.

I don't play any other MMO, so I'll take your word for it.

Although, I am not even playing WoW right now because they broke something on their end with this latch patch and a lot of people are paying for a game they can't play. Also, Blizzard is trying to make it out like its on us and not owning up to what ever they fucked up. I've done literally everything I can think of to do short of a complete reinstall, and I haven't done that because of all the people saying "I did everything I could, then I did a reinstall and nothing has worked."

...and totally killed the flow and feeling of the cinematic by doing so.

I don't see the appeal in seeing scenes of stuff I do everyday ingame but prettier. That's rather boring.

First- I apologize for the "is easy" quote. Dunno what I was thinking there as I know the CGI isn't easy to make AND I typically don't make such simple grammatical errors.

Second- I wasn't whining and/or bitching. We were stating our opinions of the trailer. I gave mine. Some people questioned it or commented on it. I replied. I take what I get and I'm not asking for anyone to change or cater to me- I was just joining in the discussion and giving my opinion. I'm not even upset about the whining/bitching comment- I'm explaining my thoughts.

Third- I am in no way still a kid. I am very willing to bet I am one of the oldest people playing wow and participating in discussions about it.
