The lights are on
The Horde and Alliance in World of Warcraft are always competing with one another, for land, resources, or just because they don't like each other. Now in a new web-show they are competing for something a little different – who has the more epic chopper?
Blizzard's first episode of the eight episode series "Azeroth Choppers" debuted today and has two teams of bike experts, one Alliance and one Horde, competing to design a killer chopper that channels everything their in-game faction stands for. The team members were handpicked by master motorcycle designer Paul Jr., and each team also includes members of the World of Warcraft development team to make sure each chopper stays true to Blizzard's vision.
This is cool and all, but what is it for? At the end of the series fans will get to vote on which chopper reigns supreme. The bike with the most support will then be put into World of Warcraft for players to enjoy alongside many of the game's already existing vehicles.
Episode one has the Blizzard team meeting up with Paul Jr. for the first time and discussing the iconic look of the Horde and Alliance. It also ends on a terrible cliffhanger. Thankfully we won't have to wait too long to find out what happens, as the next episode is set to release next Thursday, April 24.
Our TakeI never expected Blizzard to dabble in reality TV, but I can't say I didn't enjoy it. I look forward to seeing what crazy designs the two teams can come up with. Also, is their any doubt that the Horde is totally going to win this? For the Horde!
