What the fuck is wrong with you? The graphics or ludicracy of animations or models is not abnormal. There is nothing new about this pet that other models haven't done. MMOs are fuckking awfull for immersion simply because there are other humans shitting up the chat.
Also, you have a shit load more to worry about other than some shitty model.
gentle reminder that WoW always was shit, you just grew up and noticed that fact even if you are still in denial about it
>adding corgis could ever make a game worse
So they've been sitting on this for 3 years waiting until a big shitstorm like Pardo leaving to release it
nobody ever stops to consider that the world is actually becoming irreversibly worse and will never get better.
think about it.
every generation says "kids these days" and criticizes everything new. but your grandfather's time ACTUALLY WAS significantly better than your father's, and your father's was significantly better than yours. and now as we grow to the age where we can have kids, we're criticizing current-day children for being dumb useless shitstains on society. Because they are. Each generation is actually measurably worse than the last but nobody notices because they just attribute the complaints to "old people gonna old"
guess the game using only corgi pictures and filenames
calm down you retards. They could have put a shiba in and accompanied it with a bunch of "WOW SO FIRE MUCH DOG" but they fucking didn't.
The corgi has a long legacy of being an awesome character in anime and video games. there's nothing wrong with this except the fact that it doesn't really match the rest of their aesthetic. But you know what? The game is coming up on TEN YEARS OLD. They've milked all the good ideas and worthwhile upgrades and now they're just trying to add anything that will keep people playing. The game was already fucking dead. Stop playing. Cancel your sub, let it die already.
>tfw I have a corgi and he is literally the best fucking dog ever
I'm curious, have you ever been 'immersed' in WoW? It isn't that type of game at all. It's an MMO, you spend all your time talking/being with other player characters. This shit ain't Metal Gear.
I prefer "smartest kid on the short bus."
>It's an MMO, you spend all your time talking/being with other player characters. This shit ain't Metal Gear.
MMO's used to be about immersion once.. At least SWG, Anarchy Online and DAoC kinda were. WoW kinda sacrificed it for player convenience.I still think MMO's would be saved by one that prioritizes immersion, but what the fuck do I know?
It's not. Crime is going way down, we're getting smarter (Yes, it's true. The internet age has just more readily exposed us to the stupidity normally locked behind closed doors), we're living longer and healthier, and war is less common and less harmful.
Pretty much every human standard is slowly raising. And if it's "people are idiots and live stupid lives", we've always, always done that. Teenagers have always been tards.
imagine if you were born when there was no internet and TV was extremely limited. you probably would have done something with your life. even if you were a shut-in, you'd be reading books all day and learning something. at the very least, improving your vocabulary.
don't try to lie to me and tell me you're an IT professional earning six figures or some shit, I know you're just as much of a fat friendless slob as everyone else on this website.
Saying that is pretty unfair to new MMOs.
WoW has 10 years of polish and content behind it as well as most likely a 5~ year period of time while it was still in development pre-relase.
No game can release with as much content and polish as WoW has today. Comparisons between present day WoW and new MMOs are thus not valid. If any comparison is to be made, it has to be compared to vanilla.
The overall aesthetic of WoW of late is reminescent of a fucking Korean ftp mmo.
When last I played I saw a person surfing a UFO.
This is almost going the route of TF2 where it just doesnt care for the setting design and throws anything it thinks is cool in. Also, the amount of glowing luminescent and sparkly shit on everything is fucking retarded looking
One of the reasons I liked Lord of the Rings online was that it knew what it wanted to look lke and everything made sense aesthetically in that universe.
No, it is fair to compare them and that's why so many MMOs fail.
Why would anyone play a new release when they have WoW and it's decade+ of polish and content and an established playerbase?
my grandfather grew up in the great depression, half his siblings died of fucking polio and one was killed by japs. he lived in britt, iowa, which was named the hobo capital of america
ok but yeah the 70s/80s was legitimately the best time to be alive for a white middle class American man, but otoh his shit generation fucked that situation up and my grandfathers shit generation almost nuked the world
people are people m80
No, most people just sat around, socialized, and drank. Same as we've always done. Useless people never try to elevate themselves.
Also, knowledge is cheaper, easier to access and not class locked anymore like it was before. Learning has never been easier.
I thought they were for hunting badgers.
>nobody ever stops to consider that the world is actually becoming irreversibly worse and will never get better.
Are you retarded? I am certain you are but it is always polite to ask beforehand, anyhow, no.
The world is just getting bigger, not worse. The reason why there wasn't this much crime before is because there were not that many humans before. People died by the thousands just a mere 100 years ago, still births were common place. The population grown exponentially when better hygiene became a norm, vaccines were heavily distributed, civilization expanded and food production increased dramatically. Even shitholes like Africa and Mexico are better.
We are just living through one of the weakest global recessions the world has ever seen. Things are only bad for Arabs though, but they always had it bad.
>not doing a shiba inu
Blizzard are you even trying anymore
>not a molten Daschund
really blizzard are you even fucking trying
When people do it they're essentially comparing a green recruit to a war-hardened veteran with multiple medals awarded in service and then telling the recruit he's a worthless piece of shit for not being as good as the veteran.
>Myamoto of blizzard quits
>release shitty microtransaction pet as damage control
>mfw people actually get hyped for this stupid thing
What do you think of people that like them equally?
>tfw you'll never have a dog as big as this
>look silly with their stumpy legs
Likely that they've had good luck with their cats. I've owned numerou cats and dog over the year, every single dog I've owned has been an amazing companion. Only one cat I've owned ha been as amicable, the others were all fuckers.
>Another cash shop item that everyone will buy, pollute the streets of their respective capitals with and then 90% of the people that bought them will never use them again past the first week
Money well spent
Corgi's were bred to herd sheep (they are short to avoid being kicked), unless you own sheep then it's useless.
Now guard dogs, those are useful little things. Aside from Caucasian shephards, who are agressive and will get bored without animals to herd. Would be funny to see a nig break into a house with one though.
i own two of them. yes they are nice, but you cant deny they look weird tearing around with those tiny little peg legs
>you will never get to ride him home after a long day of running aroung the forest and exploring.
I will never be 13 again, where everything was perfect.
I'm guessing you have never seen a newfoundland
Bred to herd cattle as well.
More importantly, all you need from a guard dog is something that will bark at people. You don't need to have them kill people (and then have them blame the dog on their injuries and have your dog put down)
Daily Reminder PARDO is the one who decided to make WoW more fun and add movement speed, readiness, and remove boring secondaries
daily reminder celestalon and holinka are the ones removing all the fun out of the game and removing abilities wishing to make this game a pseudo League of Legends for fucking BABIES because they know the money is there
alienating their fanbase yet again
The only thing that's going to outlive you is a tortoise or a parrot. And if they do, who would take care of them when you are gone?
I've always wondered if it's true that Tibetan Mastiffs were bred to fight wild animals.
have been in since WC2 and have balls deep lore.
were super important in WC3 and based on an easily recognizable fantasy creature.
also in since WC2 and recognizable fantasy race.
pandas are based on a running joke of one of the artists who hid them in some artworks. then in TFT there was a single pandaren in the bonus campaign who had two whole lines of dialogue and nothing else. pandas were also redesigned with kung-fu panda and furfag fat fetishists in mind.
They're meant as high-class guard dogs.
Now, Chow-Chows are meant to fucking kill bears
I would just claim self defence.
Cunts shouldnt be in my home.
They were bred to protect temples. Probably wardogs too.
Rhodesian ridgebacks were bred to hunt lions.
Ok, what would you guys say the worst dogs are?
Either poodles or pugs imo. Probably pugs due to breathing problems. Toy dogs in general are shit though.
That's all true.
I fucking loved the Trolls in WC2. Except the few missions where you had to rescue them. That felt a little silly, especially since one of them was Zul'Jin (if I recall correctly, it's been a while).
The Tauren were probably my favourite part of WC3. Their appearance was excellent, and HIGH COW Bloodhoof was actually pretty well developed.
I don't remember the WC2 elves having such enormous eyebrows, though.
But honestly; do the Pandas feel out of place in the world? Considering the shit that's been pulled with the lore, I think they fit right in.
>>I don't remember the WC2 elves having such enormous eyebrows
And their ears were still the same size as the ones you see in LOTR.
They were changed to appeal to asians with no regard for the western audience.
>It is crossbread with bears. Kinda like how some huskies are crossbread with wolves.
Nigga you dumb.
A wolf is pretty closely related to dogs. They are the ancestors of what we have now, we just picked the more domesticated ones.
A bear is nothing like a dog, and they cant breed. Not even with wolves, never mind our things even further from them. You would have better luck crossing a human with a chimp than a dog with a bear.
You know, the fact that wolves and dogs can interbreed and produce viable offspring would mean that they aren't different species, at least by our current definition of "species". Dogs are essentially domesticated wolves. Genetically, they're so similar that we really shouldn't consider them separate species, but we do because they're so different behaviorally.
>more $20 cash shop shit in a game that hasn't seen a real content update this entire year
The worst part is that people will buy this on top of paying $15 a month and $50 every 2 years to grind 10 more levels.
Holy shit I just looked up Toy Poodles they are so fucking cute. What's so bad about them? Are they generally yappy like most small dogs?
I'm probalby biased as fuck against them though because they remind me of Bichons and they are my favourite dogs ever because I grew up with a bro-tier one.
Anyone else here have a Bichon?
Take heed hero. Before you lies two distinct paths, one of light and the other of dark. You must choose now which life you choose to lead. Will you take the path of righteousness, striking down accursed men with evil in their hearts. Or will you choose the path of the corrupt, paving your walkway with the lives of the innocent?
If you played the game you actually see that they have a pretty decent lore to them and most of the characters of the expansion are likable and unique.
If anything is a poison to warcraft it's that they can't do anything but write the same 3 villains over and over again
>Old Gods did it
>Demons did it
>Dragonflight did it
>Dragonflight did it again
>Old gods did it again
>Demons did it again!
What is it about corgis and things on their heads?
I was tackled by one of these things once.
I caught a football that was thrown at me. Dog wanted it too. I was only 10.
He was very friendly though and didn't actually hurt me.
>Retarded animal that chokes to death on it's own skin
We should euthanize them all. It's kinder that way.
Hell euthanize most breeds, thanks to breeders and all the incest causing health problems.
That's my point. Pandas are great because the entire place is unique until they suddenly ruin it by bringing it back to old warcraft lore that everyone on /v/ likes to cry about being gone.
>disease and flea-ridden
Take better care of your pets anon.
Fuck you faggot, pugs are the cutest little niggas.
>Bricks vary less in size than people's heads.
There was a question whether the first picture was some trickery using forced perspective, and that second picture helps absolutely nothing to clear the case. It was absolutely retarded to post it. I hate you.
step it up anon. There are live ones
You'll love it, they're pretty god damn smart and loyal.
I have one, 8 months. His name is Duke.
Want me to image dump?
That looks like a walking talking dancing SHIT!
It's a SHIT!
fucking google the dog then you colossal faggot
it's been up for 40 minutes and the name has been posted multiple times
it's the biggest breed of dog in the fucking world you shiteater
>People getting butthurt over pandas
Bandwagoning at it's finest. Where's the hate for gnomes? They are the most pandering, asspull-y, shitty race in the entire game. But they're a vanilla race so it's not cool to hate them.
I don't even play pandas but c'mon...
>being autistic about Ragnaro's pet Corgi
>when this thing exists
It's like people who don't even play WoW are actually grasping at straws to find "valid" reasons to bash on something without looking like a total fucking retard.
...Oh fucking wait.
Jesus fucking Christ
Are there people on /v/ who still play this game?
>Still no chihuahua pet
corgifags and pugfags pls go
Pugs are so inbred it's depressing.
This is what they originally looked like.
>not superior shibas
It's a shame what the internet did to them, but still.
>It's a shame what the internet did to them
The le maymay has become so overused that even the mainstream hates it now, which I think is fucking hilarious. Now if only reddit would let go of it.
>but your grandfather's time ACTUALLY WAS significantly better than your father's
>there are people who genuinely think this
It's not that they were just karate pandas it was that they didn't even feel like they fit in with the rest of the Warcraft universe. And that suddenly we're expected to accept that Pandarans are not only in their millions across this giant continent hidden away in mystical chinese stereotypes but that they have always been there and interacted with other races like the Night Elves during the War of Ancients.
I was perfectly fine with Chen in WC3, hell I really liked the guy. But this was going one step too far. They looked like a fucking joke.
Sept for the part where all of those fit into traditional western fantasy.
Pandas were just took ridiculous. There is no scenario in which someone with a sword should lose to someone without a sword. It's just a bad idea to inject Naruto into generic western fantasy.
Also, we have enough furries.
>B-B-B-BUT THEY WERE UNITS IN WC3
Yep, and thats where they were best. Isolated, unique, units.
>B-B-B-BUT THEY WERE UNITS IN WC3
To expand on this, in RoC they're just creeps in the Northrend tileset for multiplayer, they don't appear in the campaign outside of a couple easter eggs. In TFT Chen shows up in the bonus campaign as part of an optional sidequest and he has no relevance in the story. The only dialogue he has is two lines before and after his quest, nothing else. He's only there so you have another party member.
I will be genuinely angry if this is another fucking cash shop item.
All this fucking time with no new content, no new five mans, no filler raids, because their art team has been "too busy" on the new expansion (With only four five mans), yet somehow they've found the time for this.
I've tried a lot but I always come back to WoW
>Continuous mostly-meaningful updates and expansions
>Variety in classes and races
>Huge lore, some would say too big
>Active roleplaying community
>Neat features like mogs
It's not great, but nobody else can seem to do it right.
Get it together.
Actual content like 'this race is REALLY the lamest one'?
“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”
- Plato or Socrates
>Will you lose your shit over ORCS ORCS ORCS aka. WoD as well?
Well no, because orcs are and always have been central to Warcraft, since the days of Warcraft 1. The races don't have to be equally represented or important, and joke pandas certainly didn't need an entire expansion. Gnomes don't either.
A little of both.
I am worried that WoD is going to be a little bloated with orc this and orcs that, but it would be kind of silly to complain about it. It would be like complaining that BC had too many demons or WotLK had too many undead.
The problem with pandas is that they're entirely based on a footnote in the lore and very, very hard to take seriously. It's like getting an expansion about kobolds.
>mostly-meaningful updates and expansions
>Variety in classes and races
>Huge lore, some would say too big
I'll agree with the RP community though, it's pretty nice and there is a niche for everyone. No matter how lengthy or lewd you want to get with your posts.
My feelings are the opposite of this image, good work.
I like to rescue dogs from death row/the pound and make their lives as happy/long as I can. If I don't suffer a little they might die alone and unloved. How sad you are at the end is proof of how worth it that time was.
Well yeah, for the jade forest.
Then you get to go fuck around in pandaland for the next several hours and that whole alliance/horde conflict thing is glossed over until that stuff in krasarang pops up and garrosh goes batshit.
>tfw orcs will never do the blood pact to team up with the pit lords and rape the humans again
But honestly if blizzard decides to add another race to the playable roster it'd probably be some retconned tol'vir/mogu'shan crap
>A faithful dog has refused to leave the side of his dead master's grave for six years. German shepherd Capitan ran away from home after the death of Argentinian Miguel Guzman in 2006. A week later Mr. Guzman's family went to pay their respects and found the heartbroken pet sitting by his owner's grave, wailing.
>Since then the grieving dog has rarely left the spot at the cemetery in the town of Villa Carlos Paz, in central Argentina. Mr. Guzman bought Capitan as a present for his 13-year-old son Damian in 2005.
>Although the dog often leaves the cemetery to spend a short period of time with his family, he always returns to the gravesite before dark.
>Constantine, German Shepherd Dog aka Kostya or Faithful Kostya, in the mid-1990s in Togliatti, Russia - a family died in a car crash during the summer of 1995, leaving the dog as the only survivor. A German Shepherd Dog, named Constantine by the locals, kept coming to the same spot for the next 7 years braving freezing winters and hot summers. The Monument of Devotion - a bronze statue honouring the dog's loyalty was placed on that spot in 2003 by the city authorities
>Tommy, a 7-year-old German Shepherd Dog, still goes to church where its owner’s funeral was held. The owner, Maria Margherita Lochi, used to come, with Tommy, to the Santa Maria Assunta church in San Donaci, Italy. After she died, the dog was present at her funeral service and followed after Maria's coffin. The father of the church, Donato Panna, said, "he waits patiently by the side of the altar and just sits there quietly. I didn't have the heart to throw him out—I've just recently lost my own dog, so I leave him there until Mass finishes and then I let him out." Tommy passed away on January 20, 2014 after an illness.
>Talero is a German shepherd who loyally stayed next to his owner, Bernardo Leónidas Quirós, for 23 days, after Quirós died in a snow storm in Argentina. According to El Patagonico, Talero appears to have prevented wild animals from attacking the body of his owner and survived by hunting small animals. The loyal companion also seems to have slept by his owner's side, attempting to keep him warm and shelter him from the winds. When police approached the body, Talero growled and barked at them, continuing to protect his owner.

>A local coroner has already ruled Baysinger's death a suicide - adding that although the cause of death was not immediately confirmed, a gun had been found near his body.
>The remains were discovered after a rancher noticed Cash roaming in the area and wandered over to investigate.
"At least we know it's over now," said the dead man's widow Sara. "We'd been looking for my husband for six weeks, and this isn't how we wanted it to end. At least we can close this."
Demon Hunter class is all but confirmed for Burning Legion expansion.
I'd like to see a class that takes max level characters and just flat out turns them into another class to level in that expansion, would be neat for the people who have like 8 max levels with 2-3 they don't want or use.
Nah, fuck you nigga. Now I got tears in my eyes.

Hurry up and find some way to create a hybrid animal, Science!
It's popular with kids and got its own spin off tv series, and I would assume Blizzard is desperate enough to try anything to get new players. Do you really believe that there is no connection at all?
If I were them, I would just focus on retaining the subscriptions I had, while trying to get old players to come back.

>A husky missed his owner so much that the canine somehow tracked him to a hospital two miles away in the middle of the night. Zander the white husky was a shelter dog who was rescued by John Dolan five years before. When Dolan was hospitalized in a Long Island, New York hospital with a skin condition, Zander became very depressed and was moping around the house. So the dedicated husky snuck out at 3 a.m. and amazingly found Dolan at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip.
>A hospital employee found the dog on the street outside of building where Dolan was being treated. The nurse called the number on Zander's collar which turned out to be Dolan's cell phone number; he answered the phone from his hospital bed. Dolan's wife later came over and retrieved Zander. The dedicated dog even made a second trip to the hospital later.
Dogs sure are something.
They really wasted Vashj'ir in cata. Should of just made that + a few more zones / dungeons and raids after Cata instead of MoP.
I guess they if they want to do a south seas / naga xpac they can just cataclysm vashj'ir and make it a 'new' zone.
Every single expansion since wrath has been the "old god" expansion.
I'm sick and fucking tired of them, they're like mustache twirling villains instead of eldritch horrors at this point.
I liked the sha in mists, I liked that they were a different kind of bad guy that fit well thematically with the expansion and all that.
Then SoO comes out and "IT WUZ THE OLD GODS ALL ALONG!!!"

I'm aware that Pandaria existed in WC3. But how exactly do you think they came to the decision of inserting pandas as a playable race? You think it's a coincidence that MoP was released a year after Kung Fu Panda 2's release?
The only redeemable thing about the Thunderking isles were the dinosaur areas.
Devilsaurs can go suck a dick though.
