It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Now I wonder how many Transformers we can name with the fewest possible different names.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:38 PM)

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Or do you want people to spam the Squawkbox with lists of 100 characters?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

i don't go into people's threads that have no relevance to my interests just to be an ass by telling them that their comments and opinions are of no value just because they have no personal interest to me.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Or did you just think of another random question to lessen your boredom?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:04 PM)

Is this a survey?

Huh. So the Gilgoblins from Nazjatar are just chilling by the docs in Bladefist Bay. No quests. No dialog. Just the three companion characters, a sea giant and a Muri...uhh..lobster guy.

Future allied race perhaps?

Just seems like an odd addition.

Really hoping they will be.  Them and the Ahkoans as well.


Ironbite-I wonder if I could flash over to Hoard on my main for awhile and pick up the Allied Races I haven't yet.

I could see the new friendly Mogu joining a side as well.

Seems random that they'd just introduce a group of friendly Mogu. Especially when they could have easily just had the Vale faction be a group of Pandas.

They also use the Draenai rig. So some of the work is done. There is a female design too. Including new female NPCs in the Rajani.

Well that female Mogul isn't new, she is the same model as Lu'lin from the twin consorts encounter in Throne of Thunder.  The model has been around for awhile now.


I don't think we will be getting any allied races for awhile now.  BFA is now done, we are not getting an 8.5, and after that the focus will be on Shadowlands.  The races we meet there are all likely not allied race candidates, since they are all part of the afterlife, and would have no reason to join a faction.


When we get around to new races again, I just hope they are completely new races again, not variants of a current race in the game.  We could still get Naga or Etherals, and they would require a lot more work from the artists then the Allied Races from BFA did to be playable.

Eh. I could see one more round of Allied races in the prepatch to go along with the revamped leveling system. 


And just to clarify.  I was referring to the twin female Mogu from Throne of Thunder for the female designs.  Just brought up that the Rajani have female Mogu as the twins were supposed to be the last after the Thunder King wiped out the other females.  The Rajani having females shows that is not the case anymore. So I definitely feel they are at least laying some groundwork for playable Mogu here.

Well Blizzard has made a compromise on the whole High-Elf issue.




Looks like Alliance High-Elves are here, in a fashion anyway.

Yup, I think Shadowlands is going to have to be revolutionary to keep things going. Unfortunately, we've seen nothing that suggests that it's not just same old.


What's Blizzard's main money maker these days? Hearthstone? They've basically stopped supporting HotS, and Overwatch 2 has been announced so the first will probably be winding down too.

WoW is doing fine, subs are surprisingly up for an end of the expansion, mostly cause people are stuck at home.  Right now it is one of Activision/Blizzard's few big sources of income, and that came from the last investor quarterly meeting, so there is no reason to lie there. 


Most of the stuff for Shadowlands that has come out from people int he Alpha has been pretty positive, certainly is in a better place then we were for BfA at this time.  It looks like they are fixing a lot of the issues that happened to the classes and systems over the years, and also done a proper revision of the trade skills.  Torghast is getting rave reviews, so that looks like it will be a fun addition as well, it is getting more positive talk then Islands and Warfronts did.


As for the High Elf options for Void Elves, I really don't consider it a break the glass moment.  High Elf fans are a very loud but, small minority, (some are already complaining they still can't make Paladins on Void Elves, or have a full High Elf Allied race, which will not be happening). This decision actually did manage to piss off a larger part of the player population, that being the militant Horde Blood Elf players.  They are furious Alliance got anything like this, and there are way more of them then High Elf Fans. (Interestingly enough, this group of players also has massive crossover with the players who adore Sylvanas and think she can never do any wrong).


Blizzard likely did this as a compromise, since the High Elf fans have been asking for this since even before BC, and know was an easy time to do this with the upcoming customization options.  I will say with this Alpha Blizzard has been listening and communication a lot better then they did previously, so this may just be related to that.
