Huh that game is still around? If only they could make the gameplay as fun and interesting as they do the trailers the game might be worth playing.

@crusader8463: yeah, it's pretty small though.  Only 12 million players.

Man, and I thought Dragon Age had some dated graphics.

Wow, how many years later, Arthas is finally going to possibly die.

Proof that just because a lot of people are doing something doesn't make it good ^_^

so
does the game ends after downing the lich king?

Posted by Death_Burnout

I havent even made it to Lich King content yet...that's probably because i'm not a nerd. Oh sorry, i mean, not 14.
 
Nah i jest...but, there are many reasons why i dont like the player base.

See you guys later, going to camp the Lich King spawn.

I demand WarCraft 4, FUCK World of Warcraft. That game ruined the lore I loved during my childhood while playing through WarCraft I, II and eventually even WarCraft III.

Still though, it's good to see Arthas meeting his end. Even though I find it insulting that it's by the hand of 25 unknown entities and 100.000 times a week. Bastard deserves it after betraying Muradin.

Actually thats not proof of that at all. 
 
What it is closer to actually proving, is that things aren't bad just because YOU think they are.  When it comes to entertainment, if a lot of people are watching the movie/playing the game/reading the book/listening to the music, chances are it IS good, regardless of if you like it or not. 
 
Also, owned.

Ooooh, shiny trailer. Too bad I gave up WoW.

Posted by GregIsRad

Look at me! I'm too good for WoW! HATE HATE HATE

Edited by AndrewB

Welp, guess I'm done with the Warcraft universe. I was waiting for Warcraft 4 to wrap up the truly epic ending that came when Arthas became the Lich King. Since I don't play World of Warcraft, that means I'll never even see this throw-away event that will wrap it up. The worst part is that I'm now in some ridiculous minority who really loathes WoW for what it has done to arguably my favorite Video Game world, and because they're just making so much goddamned money doing what they're doing, my opinion means less than nothing.
 
Oh, and no Arthas voice actor makes me even sadder. At least I would have had solice in hearing him in the cutscene/trailer.

@Delta_Ass: How can you complain about the graphics? It's a 2004 game, they can't just change what the game's graphics look like just like that.
Posted by NeoGecko

is this a trailer for a patch?  Weird.

EVE did, though I guess it's safer to roll out a graphical update when your player base is smaller

Only a game like World of Warcraft would have a damn trailer put together, just for a patch.
 
Looks kinda awesome though, you have to admit.
Posted by Brazzle

I'm with you warcraft fans that hate WoW - I can't believe they're finishing in the Arthras story arc as part of this stupid mmo.
 
I don't even know how they can do a Warcraft 4 now the way they've laid waste to the lore and universe.

Posted by rohanspear345

wow always does em for big patches

Posted by onkeycow

just to let you guys know who are sad about WoW ruining warcraft lore, stuff that happens in WoW is not nessiciarly cannon to the RTS series, for example if they released WC4 it would likely continue off of Frozen Throne, not WoW and tell the story as it should be told. 
 
not that WoW is bad though, i still think it's kinda fun (dont play it though) but i just don't think it's the best means to tell the warcraft story.

Posted by Madyew

I'll probably be playing some of this during the holidays. Really well done trailer.

Posted by TigerDX

If only the game played like this trailer looks, WoW might still be a game I'd be interested in playing. But can all this content be done with just 1 or 2 other players? Probably not.

Posted by MachoFantastico

You can't say Blizzard don't know how to make great trailers.

I was going to say this if someone else wasn't going to. Get him a "Jump to Conclusions" mat.

Eh... I didn't find myself jumping in my seat in anticipation with this particular trailer, like I have with others in the past. But none the less, the new Fall of the Lich King stuff is pretty neat, despite the immature community complaining about there being, shockingly, errors during the patching process.
 
The MMO hardly ruined the lore of the game. It's all there if you take the time to read and do things patiently instead of mindlessly following add-ons to the top. As for raids, they've made them a lot more accessible so that their lore and hard work can be seen by more. However, it's an MMO, and because of that it's a time requirement to do that type of thing. Videos exist if you can't do it. *shrug*

yeah besides those 12 million, no one finds it fun.

Only Blizzard can release a trailer for a patch.

Edited by trimon

Read it as Fail of the lich king XD

Edited by Evilsbane

*Sigh* the Epic story line that began in Warcraft 3 is going to be a Raid in WoW, there is no justice, WoW is not a bad game but Blizzard just completely forsook every bit of lore they had to make that game I would still be playing it if it had a good story but these little patch trailers while cool just don't cut it.
Posted by Vorbis

People bringing up the 12million players are abit out of date, the last update was over a year ago and since China has shutdown their servers the numbers have dropped alot. WoW is losing subscribers as they are making the game too casual friendly and recycling content. 
 
Sure the games still a behemoth, but it's finally peaked.
 
Also EVE, Aion and several other MMOs have had trailers for patches aswell, this isn't a new concept.

Posted by LaszloKovacs

So... killing Arthas would end the overarching plot they've been using since WC3, right? I guess this is why Cataclysm is coming out soon?
 
Whatever. I have absolutely zero desire to get back into WoW at this point. I've done my time.

Posted by Cloneslayer

blizzard can pull of some amazing graphical feats with a 5 year old game.

Exactly, just look at religions. All of them can't be right!

Yeah, and maybe they'll camp his body so he has to take a grave rez.

God, I hope so. I don't mean this in a "LOL WOW SUX" way, and I love Blizzard and have no problem with them succeeding in the MMO market. It would just be really cathartic to see it go down.
 
I remember the summer before my senior year in high school (still long before any of the expansions), I would get up and go to work for an 8-hour shift, then come home and play WoW for another 8 hours before going to bed. It was literally all I did. It's not exactly the game's fault, but I associate it with a pretty terrible stretch of time. I'd just rather not constantly have it in my face, you know?
Posted by NeoGecko
@VinceNotVance: Eh, they didn't show what it was about (gameplay wise), plus I'm holding out for guild Wars 2 
Posted by Cerza

Cool trailer, but there is no way in hell I am going back to that game.

Edited by Flaime

Fun Fact: Arthas IS dead, The Lich King isn't. 
And there will always be a Lich King, so he might return sometime, somewhere.

Posted by CommodoreGroovy

For a second it almost looks like it says: "Fail of the Lich King".

Yeah, that's what I though too actually. Anyway, it's a well made trailer but I just don't have the time to spend in order to play the raiding game anymore. Hopefully everyone else who can will enjoy it though.
Posted by Chris2KLee

Well they dropped me a free 7 day pass, so I guess I'll cash it in and reactivate for a taste of 3.3. I'm more interested in the cross realm instance stuff, seems like it will make pugging a little easier even if it's not more tolerable.

Posted by PositivelyGreg

There's a thread for I'm-too-cool-for-WoW just devoted to a patch?  Man, only WoW.  Too bad the actual comments are so 2004.

Hells yeah, awesome trailer as always. But I won't start playing again before cataclysm.
