Featuring Blizzard's usual high production values and atmospheric tone, the cinematics shed light on some characters' backgrounds and motivations. Fans can expect to learn more about Jaina Proudmoore of the Alliance; Horde Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner; and Azshara, Queen of the Naga as the animations are released. Being one of the most beloved characters within the Warcraft lore, it’s not surprising that Blizzard have launched the series with Jaina Proudmoore. Sylvanas, warchief of the Horde, leads her forces to victory against the night elves of Darnassus and moves to conquer their home: the great tree Teldrassil. However, Horde players did not react well to the Sylvanas’s cinematic, which suggests that they’re very much the villains of the latest expansion.

In fairness to Cech, Greek centre half Sokratis was standing right in the Arsenal keeper’s line of vision.
