I watched the video and liked it, actually got chills.Then I read the comment section which just made me sad. Sure, it wasn't the best 30 seconds I've ever seen on the internet, but from reading these (mostly up-voted) comments you'd think it was a video of a Dev's cat using the litter box.I know it's en vogue to be down on Blizz and Cat, but sometimes negativity is a self- fulfilling prophecy. Let's enjoy what we have and not spoil it (or down-vote their comments) for those that are having a blast playing the game they love.

Go watch 3.3, 4.2, 4.1, or Ulduar's trailers. Then watch this one. You'll see why there's disparaging comments.

I think this is a fairly solid point a lot of people are overlooking, not just with this trailer but with Cata in general.As soon as I finished watching this, I thought to myself, "self, I'd bet 20 bucks that originally this was probably more Thrall centered and more coherent, or that they took a page out of 4.2 and made it narrated by Deathwing or something, but then someone decided that because there's a large 'anti-Thrall sentiment' going around and no one seems to care about Deathwing himself, that they had better play it safe."As far as I'm concerned, Cata has been quite a few huge steps towards giving the players exactly what they want, from harder heroics to customizable gear appearances to a villain that makes a few meaningful appearances (as opposed to none or 20 per zone) and all we've seen is backlash, negativity, and doomsaying from the (vocal) players. This trailer wasn't fantastic, but I wouldn't say it was poor either, and for someone who had never seen the picture of Deathwing impaled on Wyrmrest or knew you'd be fighting on Deathwing's back, I'd bet that was a pretty epic experience.
