Azeroth Choppers: World of Warcraft does American Choppers, and nothing makes sense any more

Azeroth Choppers

It can’t be real, but it is. Azeroth Choppers is a bizarre reality web show that pits two teams, one led by Blizzard wordsmith Chris Metzen, the other led by art director Sam Didier, against each other as they build custom choppers. 

That shouty man from American Choppers will be helping them. What chopper is the best chopper is up to fans, as they’ll vote on which bike ends up in World of Warcraft. 

Both bikes will reflect one of the two playable factions, Alliance and Horde, but only one will make it into the game. 

Competitiveness is part and parcel of the WoW experience, and I can’t imagine many players not having a preference. And reality TV feeds off that sort of stuff like a succubus. So I understand why they’ve made the show a competition, but it’s a shame that this means one faction will end up losing out. 

Chances are, most folk will just vote for the bike from their faction. Mind you, it’s a free chopper, so it’s hard to complain. I don’t care about the web series, I just want to ride around in a flash new ride.  

Things will get ridiculous on April 17th.

Not really, it got you to reply so it is working to get people's attention like it is designed to do.

It's really no different to any other form of advertising.

I replied to say that it's really dumb. It is not something that makes me even remotely want to play again, nor do I think it's cool or fun etc. It's fairly disgusting actually, and a poor marketing ploy since it has the complete opposite effect on me.

anyway you slice it them doing it still got your attention and if you post somewhere else about it being terrible and disgusting you are making others aware of it and helping them spread the advertising.

as has been said before there is no such thing as bad publicity, hell a couple of years back a firm put out a load of faulted advertisements as they knew it would get people talking about them, it's the same as another put out 50% of their adverts to look as if they were vandalised, because they know people will talk about it and once it is acknowledged and people talk about it the advertising is working.

The whole there's no such thing as bad publicity is a stupid saying, and completely false. People haven't forgotten WoW, so that's silly too. They're trying to cater to the younger generation by being "cool", which is quite sad. I'd go on, but I really cba anymore.

THIS IS THE MOST RETARDED THING.

talk about breaking game continuity. a bunch of elves and dwarves and whatever riding around a fantasy middle earth type world with ugly ass modern choppers.

maybe next they will put in a rap battle quest or stupid assed lowriders with spinning rims.

i feel sorry for anyone who actually uses this for RP.

KEEP THE STUPIDITY AND CHEAPNESS UP BLIZZARD. GUILD WARS 2 IS BETTER ALREADY AND THEY WOULDNT PULL THIS CHEAP PUBLICITY STUNT.
