Go to this URL to see the new race in warcraft III

http://www.battle.net/war3/pandaren/

I can't believe Blizzard did this. I saw a wallpaper image last week of a samuri panda somewhere on blizzard but I had no clue that this was going to happen...
What is everyone else's reaction?

Its pretty obvious. They did go to plenty of trouble, but in a way not enough. For example the screenshots show a mass of one unit... one that doesn't fit in with the descriptions on the site. It would be amazing if it were true, but only a fool would be so optomistic.

It would be neat if they did because it's so funny. I like the geomancer with his apple and the hero panda. =) ROFL seriously though I don't think I need to express the point the others have tried to give before me. (rolls around on the floor some more)

when you put a sleeping panda on the shoulder on one of the heroes with big "Z", then it's pretty clear to me that it's a joke.

Because Blizzard hasn't been doing a whole hell lot lately so they probable got bored and did that

That's actually like....anyone thought of the secret cow level in Diablo 2?
Maybe they actually use this to put a bit humour in the game!
It's not impossible!


EDIT: Whoops! Someone posted a thread about that, didn't see that one!

Because they love us and have too much time on their hands If anyone does actually think it's a real new race, don't you think it's a mighty big coincidence that they announced them on April 1st?

Well, you dont know, they could do _ANYTHING_ they want, they're the developers. But, OH GOD they did a great job of fooling you guys. How can u guys look in the mirror and keep a straight face as you say: "I cant wait to play the pandas!" I mean really, think of it logically, I gotta hand it to Blizzard, they are april fools GENIOUSES!!!

Sorry if I offended anyone, but i dont take anything back.

It has to be a joke, i mean it would be just plain gay to have a race of pandas. It is true,then it's problaby a secret level. You know like the Cow Level or Secret in SC.

Maybe its reverse reverse psycology or something like that, making us think that they were playing a joke because they would know that we would know that they would know... and so forth. I like confusing myself.

What you guys all seem to be missing is that the title of the announcment is "April Fools Day Joke". Hmmm....I wonder if it's a joke....

I was just thinking, what would the Pandaren air unit(s) be? I think a little bambus glider unit would be cool. He could drop rocks in people like the Ewoks on Star Wars.

Which undoubtfully involves u for ur inability to grasp the concept of april fool's and for also being one urself for flaming me incessantly over ur recent loss with me.
