      This was a fantastic stream and I loved learning about the creative process and the passions for the story and characters that drive it. Thank you, Blizzard!

          Look I am all for some guys geeking out about a game but when I go to the creators of the game it really just comes across as two guys jerking each other off for an hour. The community has no shortage of questions, concerns and curiosities. Perhaps these videos are better suited to actually answering those

            all I am hearing is horde filth, horde filth horde filth stuff. What ever happened know, the Alliance faction? Do you guys give ANY ATTENTION AT ALL to the ALLIANCE???

                I like the idea of these targeted talks from specialists. Hope they become a regular thing.

                      I jumped ship as soon as Warbringers: Sylvanas turned the Horde into Scourge 2.0. To this day, I regret nothing.

                      I do pity the artists, though. Their talents are wasted on this story.

                            Sometimes I wonder where WoW game Lore is heading. So I look it up, Then I see mostly videos about people hating micro-transactions, lack of interaction in game, Guilds disbanding, dying, instant queuing ruined the dungeons/raids.... genuine friendships used to develop, but not anymore. the people are bored, the game is dead. They just keep adding more micro-transactions... That’s when I realized I don’t even care about the lore anymore.

                            WoW held a special place in my heart, sad to see it so ruined...

                                        The loud shout and cry that this game is dying, will not make it true. There are a lot of alternatives to play in comparison to the times of WOTLK, you shall go play those if you think this game is dying. 1.8k people are crying out loud out of millions... this has happened back in WOTLK as well.

                                        These guys are working hard to produce those amazing cutscenes, gj keep it up!

Played this game for half my life and it's being run into the ground. Fair enough graphic improvements etc-, but ...... the "content" has become near enough souless :'(

No challenge no fun...

Something I wish they take the time to do a lot more of. There are problems to fix in the game, yes, but try to remember that there are more things to be loved than just the game itself. This isn't a PR stunt, it's purely sharing knowledge and insights.

I'd like to get more of this content, completely unrelated to the state of the Activision / Blizzard hate. Please keep this kind of communication up, I'd love to see more of these videos, next time even with some Q&A, like you mentioned!
