10 Plot Ideas For Duncan Jones' World Of Warcraft Movie  | 9. FFS ROUGE!
9. FFS ROUGE!

If Jones and Legendary really wanted to replicate the Warcraft gaming experience on the big screen, they could base their epic drama on how a typical random instance group operates. So the team would arrive, say, in the radiation-drenched city of Gnomeregan only for their irritatingly impatient undead rogue — named Roflzilla — to keep spamming “gogogogogogogo” in /I chat and aggro mobs, repeatedly wiping the group until the exasparated tank (a tauren warrior named Boomhoof) votes to kick him. The twist? He’s replaced by a goblin warlock — named ^Gøblöck^ — who forgets to dismiss his succubus before the second parachute jump, thereby wiping the goup once more. At which point, the healer — a ‘loom gear-twinked female blood elf called Pynxie — tires of the hunter (Gandalf the troll) yelling “HEAL PRIEST! FFS YOU NUB!” and quits, causing the group to fall apart completely. Would sweep the Oscars. Guaranteed.

It could be like the great, short-lived series Ace Lightning. More

2 Leeroy Jenkins
That was absolutely hilarious hearing all those nerdy guys sitting in their mom's basement planning this military-style attack that they've failed with before (waaayyy too much time on their hands, lol). Then old Leeroy just goes "fuck it", goes in and all the nerdy guys are droning: "oh fuck...oh shit...oh god." More

They should so make that into a film, the tagline could be 'At least I have chicken.' I don't know anything else about the game other than Leeroy Jenkins made me chuckle, oh and the South Park episode is funny too More

4 I am worried
There is a 99% chance that this film will be a huge budget box office failure... and WoW fans will get even more grief from average joes! More

5 Rather dissapointed ...
... that Duncan Jones has picked up the gauntlet for this. I've enjoyed his work to date (Moon, Source Code), and it would be a great shame for him to get tarred if this turns out to be a turkey. There's an army of players out there just waiting to pan this movie. Still, who knows? He may pull it off... better yet he may change his mind! More

Here's a suggestion Blizzard - if you're adamant about making this movie, get your ridiculously talented bods to do the whole thing in CGI. That way, you keep the look of the games and we don't end up with actors in awful prosthetics. As a side note though, I think making a film about WoW is a rubbish idea. More
