[WC] Warcraft: A New Dawn Announced- SC2 Mod - Page 4

post #31 of 59
Blizzard today is a much different company than Blizzard from early 2000. Let me guess... Warcraft 4 will be created by WoW developers (who with their ****ty mentality managed to ruin Diablo 3) and will feature always on DRM and real money auction house.
Today, it's not enough that you buy the game.

The Title is quite misleading, by the God-Emperor, I thought Blizzard was making WC IV at long last. mad.gif

The hat style of the Brewmaster can be found from Japan to Vietnam, btw. It is in no way a purely Chinese style of hat. Bamboo also exists in other Asian countries, making only the "drunken master" aspect a Chinese influence (the Kung Fu outfit being a part of that aspect).

For what it's worth:

Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos "Pandaren"


I wasn't privy to any background on Pandaren other than them being a very vanilla, derpy bear model Pre-Frozen Throne. It would surprise me to hear that they originally had Japanese traits in the books, from the beginning it seemed like Blizzard was always focused on Pandas' Chinese origins. The old rumor (In Vanilla/BC days) was that they didn't put Pandaren in WoW so that they didn't risk losing the ability to sell the game in China due to the depictions of injuring and killing Pandas.

Definitely cool to hear some background on Brewmaster/Drunken Master lore smile.gif Never read many of the books.

http://www.wowpedia.org/History_of_pandaren_in_Warcraft

THere is the original piece of Pandaren art, complete with katana and kimono.

There is also this little gem later on in the wiki.

"Supposedly, a gaming magazine was brought to Blizzard's offices in the fall of 2005 to view the Burning Crusade expansion pack for the first time. There were dozens of posters and artwork depicting the pandaren as the new Alliance race. This rumor goes on to suggest the race was then canceled for reasons concerning "pandas being a sacred animal" in China, or with the "political problems [associated with a] Japanese/Chinese hybrid", in WC3 beta, pandaren wore samurai armor, but this was soon fixed. Other gaming sources stated that when "mentioning the ex-April-Fool's-joke Pandaren Empire to Blizzard staff got a surprisingly cagey response..." Blizzard would not confirm or deny these rumors directly until BlizzCon 2011, when Chris Metzen confirmed during an interview with Direct TV that the pandaren were indeed the original Alliance race for The Burning Crusade, but about halfway through the development of BC they were replaced with the draenei."

It wasn't a rumor, but it obviously had more to do with the Japanese influence (that persisted into The Burning Crusade) than it did any depictions of dead Pandas. MoP is available in China right now, so there are dead Pandaren in China. There are not Japanese Pandaren in China, however.

Because it is a SC2 mod, not a new game from Activision/Blizzard/Vivendi.

Have to repeat that the title is misleading. Sir Seb I think you should edit the title with SCII mod or something of the like. smile.gif

WC3 only RTS I hated and first game I never completed and gave up on. Fantasy + low army count + lame cartoony look + heroes + super tower was just lame to me. Cant wait for HotS to come out though.....
