    After reading this tread about Warcraft 4 being something we would consider I had this thing on my mind..

    What will the game actualy be based on?
    You know the main story line?

    Like what do you want to happen?
    What races would you like to see?
    Who will fight whom for what reason, that kind of stuf, what story will we see?

    Personaly I would actualy like blizzard ignore the fact they ever made WoW and continue Warcraft IV after the events of Warcraft III.
    Like each race will actualy become a playable race. You can play as Elves[Blood], Humans, Dwarfs instaid of just, the humans.

    Illidan and Arthas etc are all dead! Yes! xD
    But now the world faces a new treath, the destruction of Azeroth!
    Some evil race from a different planet (like outland it connects between a portal) and out that portal a group of powerfull creatures come destroying the world.
    At first you have to liek defend them but it's in vain so most races retreath to outland and try to counter attack from there but fel orcs, draenei and demons (all playable races ofourse :p) will try to kill other races.

    Meh this would seem nice to me. xD

    Someone once said that Blizzard once said that if they one time would do WC4, they would ignore the storyline of WoW, no I got no source for this.

    Yeah, it's true, they said they wouldn't (much to the rage of WoW players).

    Just make WoW Cannon Discontinuity and continue from after Arthus becomes one with the Lich King. Problem solved.

    That's what they would do. Even though it'd piss people off that their character MrBeeches37123 didn't singlehandedly kill Arthas and become the Lich King.

    I've seen absolutely no source for those claims. I presume they'd say that some random adventurers killed them

    After all, a bunch of random adventurers lead by Lothar killed Medivh in the first place

    As for what happens, anything could happen. If you went to a WC2 forum and told them that WC3 would be about an undead invasion and Lorderan getting wiped out, along with orcs moving to conquer a new land with their shamanistic ways and encountering wild, savage elves who end up helping them to defeat demons, I wouldn't be surprised if no one believed you

    Like what do you want to happen?
    What races would youlike to see?
    Who will fight whom for what reason, that kind of stuf what story will we see. :p
    I'll xif my tread I gues.. xD

    well in wc1 it was several footmen, crossbowmen(archer), knights, cleric, and conjurers who did that..

    now, not straying too far off as that has since been retconned and added in Lothar and Khadgar into the mix

    I would be happy if some of the events in WoW(not all) would be retconned, some are good and do not contradict the previous games, and some are just plain dumbshit

    I wouldn't be surprised if they just said "WoW'" is alternative universe and Warcraft 4 a different universe, that way they can do whatever they want with the story.

    Sony did that for Everquest 1 and 2. instead of connecting the two games together in story, Everquest 1 and 2 are considered in different universes from each other.

    That means, they can still make expansion packs/extra story to Everquest 1 while still doing whatever they want with Everquest 2;


    Now, not sure what Blizzard will do, but I'm guessing it's easiest for them and for us to just either ignore some of WoW's story or just ignore all of it(like consider it alt. universe).

    That would be very nice indeed. (Going to hope they do that.)
    However I want Blizzard to make ALOT of races if they are going to make it. :p

    No way, in Warcraft IV he died, but he and Sylvannas had children! xD
    And now they are going to destroy earth! >=D

    One of the most likely scenarios they will make... xD

    Yeah sure he just died. If they do kill of the main characters like that, then blizzard may officially call themselves retards and announce that they fail at lore but win at making gameplay.

    /agree

    anyway, even if he stays dead, Sargeras is still out there so... who knows what's his next goal

    oh and:
    wc4 using somewhat better graphics than wow, but based on it would really really rock... imagine all close-camera maps you could make, without being ashamed of textures and model quality your camera is staring at

    Quite contrary, it would be much easier to just rebuild our good stuff in those maps than to make it from scratch for sc2

    Take note I keep saying, if they make it.. :p

    Oh but I think it will be harder on mapmakers, their maps and terrains might look fubah (my word xD) with so many details, it would be hard to make it look like that.. :p

    And people I was asking for a storyline of what you would like to see kinda.. xD
