Okay, watched the trailer. What's with all the complaining?Sure, it's not a story-driven machinima like some of the trailers have been, but as a preview for upcoming content? It's excellent.These are very story-driven instances, with plenty of voice acting, and the raid has cutscenes. I'm not sure what this trailer would've focused on without overlapping with the story presented in the game.Would you have preferred a 3 minute long conversation between Thrall and the Aspects, with Death Wing flying up at the end to evil laugh and threaten?

Watch the trailers for ICC, Ulduar, Black Temple, the original Zul'Aman or even Sunwell and you will understand what all the complaining's about. People are complaining because we know Blizzard can make better trailers. They've done so in the past, repeatedly. This trailer would be adequate for a filler raid in the middle of the expansion, but as something that is supposed to get us pumped to fight the Big Bad? Not even close. It's especially egregious considering the number one story complaint about this expansion is that Deathwing's been something of a lackluster villain. This is doing nothing to remedy that.And that nonsense about it being story-driven instances or whatever is a ridiculous argument and nothing but a cop out. Sunwell Plateau was no less story driven a raid, and it had a fantastic trailer. You don't have to spend an hour spoiling everything or having people sitting around talking to make a good trailer. Watch the fan-made remix of the trailer that's been linked several times to see that even the addition of voiceovers (VOs that are already in the game files even) is enough to make this a cool trailer. Blizzard either got lazy or were scared of player backlash about Thrall, imo. It feels like a rush job.
