Are you ready to have your heart torn out by a cute animation, World of Warcraft fans? That seems to be the wide reaction to a recent video released by YouTuber Carbot, who readers will recall is widely renowned for his wide variety of Blizzard game cartoons, including the WowCraft series; he even made an animation for Blizzard for BlizzConline 2021.
It’s the latest video in the WowCraft series, This is World of Warcraft, that has stirred up a large number of emotions within the WoW community, as it takes us through the experience of one player’s life through the game’s initial releases to its slowly dulling shine as questionable design choices and more cash shop-related shenanigans have come into play, even if WoW Classic managed to spark a little bit of that old magic for a brief time.
The cartoon has elicited a lot of fan reaction both on Twitter and on Reddit, with many fans remarking that the video encapsulates the sadness of what’s seen as an MMORPG in decline. We’ve got the cartoon embedded below so you can judge for yourself.
