The only thing I'm not enthusiastic about was the music. Don't know if you guys agree, but for me it wasn't epic enough. The rest is pure awesomeness. I cant wait.@ tyler: Q1 2010 if I remember well from the WoW.com notes. If anyone can confirm, thanks in advance.

I thought the narrating was kind of silly-sounding. It's pretty clear it's a rough trailer though, looks quite interesting.

I actually liked the music because it's crazy sounding. I agree, it's not epic, but they mentioned that Deathwing basically goes bonkers, so I figured the music was kind of his "theme." Also, it was kind of unsettling looking at Azeroth all torn up with that weird music playing. Pretty creepy in an unusual way. And totally awesome. :)

If there was any doubt that Blizzard's "B" Team is on the job, it's now a sure thing. The trailer was a glorified machinima cut and paste of old in game footage and some new scenes. This could have been done by any of the YouTubers. I for one, will not be blinded by fanboyism - this was lackluster and second rate. The Lich King trailer was inspiring, and made you want to get into Northrend so you could get going after Arthas - this... Ah well, we still get to play Goblins, so all is not lost eh?

which trailer are you talking about, Nathanael

Some of the movie seems to be done a little quickly and therefor could have been done a little better. But it gets most of the points out and shows us just enough of the changes to get us exited ^^

Nathanel: I'm not sure what you were expecting, or if you just have memory problems. It's pretty much the exactly the same as the Burning Crusade and Wrath trailer.

I agree with him. I felt the same way about WOTLK trailer. Remember BC trailor, Illidan is sitting there talking low, he growls at you "you are not prepared" then he bursts into the air, music becomes epic scenes are shown to you and then at the end Illidan yells at you YOU ARE NOT PREPARED. It was the catch phrase, we yelled it in game, we yelled in in real life as a joke, it was EPIC.Then WOTLK comes out with a trailer with Arthus's dead father talking while Arthus is walking about, he raises a skeletal dragon and then his army roars as he overlooks them. The dragon raising is epic in nature but it was graphically just ok. The idea of the army stretching out was cool in concept but lacked punch. Compare that scene to the one in Lord of the Rings with the unified armies marching, see the difference? No catch phrase, real feel of power like you got with Illidan challanging you out right, mocking you, telling you bring your A game.This is not the final rendered trailer so I will cut it a break but still he was right, this trailer could have been done by someone for youtube, it did not interest me as much as even the non rendered WOTLK trailer with the adventurers going to Northrend and one falling in battle. This trailer did not make me care and the confirms two parts of one of my and a growing number of people's issues.1) Goblins are unwanted by horde, "werewolves" are wanted by both sides. Even in the trailer they showed the transformation and a Worgen howling on a cliff top. Goblins are showed..... well looking stupid. That could have been a video capture of booty bay guards for all it mattered. Lets be honest though how could you make goblins as cool as people who transform into wolves!?!?!?!?!?! 2) The socialism of the game. Worgen = Alliance Tauren, Goblin = Horde Gnome. This was the same as what BC did with the BE Palli and Drainy Shammy. It was more than just the "WTF that does not seem horde/alliance like" it was the removal of the need to pick a side based on what class you wanted to play. NOW it looks like you do not even have to decide what race you need to play. I loved having to give up something to get something, loved the little diversity in the game, but now they socialize it more and more, the line between game and chat room gets blurred more and more.
