Sigh...just as i'd about gotten my friends convinced to try WoW. They will take one look at that commercial and say "Omg, srsly? a MOWHAWK GRENADE? IN THE GAME?? That's the gheyest thing i've ever seen. I thought you said this game was cool, not cool if you're TWELVE."And i will just /face palm. I have no explanation for this. I love Mr. T as much as the next guy, but this tops the cheesy charts. Even for Blizzard.At least they're doing something nice for the kiddies, i guess. 0.o

Problem: your friends will relate Mr. T with something gay? Your friends are morons.Solution: 1) Pity them.2) Get better friends.

And you sound like you'd be a great friend, JC_Icefox. I mean, everyone likes people who call other people's friends morons.

Mr. T isn't the problem. Everyone loves Mr.T. But a "grenade" in a fantasy game that people can run around throwing on each other to make them look like a real life pop icon? That's kinda ghey. Even if it is Mr T. At least to someone on the outside. Sure, its a fun little inside joke type thing for the people who already play and love the game, but for people who are already kinda turned off by the cartoony graphics etc will just see this as one more reason not to play WoW and write it off as a "kiddie" game.

I see Thundr's point, though. The commercial isn't indicative of the actual game at all. It's a funny commercial to those of us who play the game already, but we're not the ones they need to sell WoW to.

Just because a game has "kiddie" graphics doesn't make it a "kiddie" game. Conker's Bad Fur DayAlso, there ALREADY are bombs, grenades, missiles, and motorcycles in a "fantasy" game.It sounds like you and your friends take the game WAY too seriously and don't just play it and enjoy it the way it is.

No, sorry - I'm gonna back up the first reply. If your friends are the type to look at a commercial and whine about how "ghey" it is and talk about how they're so much cooler than anyone who would DEIGN to find it entertaining? Yeah. You need better friends.

Why is gay the universal insult? I mean seriously are we in junior high here? Anyway explosives have been in Warcraft for awhile its a generally accepted fact that the WC universe has a very steampunk flavor to it. That being said while I love the grenade I do find the marketing a bit...confusing. I'm not quite sure who they are trying to appeal to, I mean other then those of us who grew up watching A Team.
