For all of the HoN players out there that played DotA and enjoyed Warcraft 3,
this is the ending cinematic for the continued story of Arthas the Lich King in World of Warcraft.
Such a massive disappointment.

....I expected fail but man.
They exceeded even what I expected. This is.. wow. I'm so happy I quit.
Edit: Topic should be Fail of the Lich King
that was pretty bad not going to lie.

When they decided to kill of their legendary heroes/villains, this is all you can possibly expect.

Well, while killing off their legendary characters isn't the greatest move to begin with. Seriously? They have previews and everything up to this point in full blown high definition cinematics with Arthas' original voice etc, then when it actually comes down to plot progression, they make this crap?
What a retarded ending as well, what was the point of killing Arthas then? It made it feel so pointless, because the Lich Kings power corrupts. There's no reason not to deal with the uncontrollable scourge, whats-his-face will just become a new Lich King and unify the scourge for a greater degree of destruction and chaos. That was the whole point - was it not?, to rid the world of the scourge. It just spits in the face of anyone who followed/played WoW up to this point. It makes all the past characters efforts left in complete vain and makes you want to murder the people who managed to completely ruin the ending to such a great tale.
This is a million steps back. Why oh why, did they use their in-game footage. Why couldn't it have been an epic cinematic like the game they released in 2003.
If you look at the related videos, Warcraft Lore 1-9 are all cinematics from Frozen Throne, they all have beautiful cinematics/graphics.
Edit: Following up on what some others have said, I remember seeing the introduction to Wrath of the Lich King.
Epicness, Arthas raising a Frost Wyrm from the ground, and to end the game... this crappy piece of turd. -makes me sad...

"There always needs to be a Lich King"
"The Scourage will be more powerful without a Lich King"
"I must take the responsibility, not you, because you have a destiny..."
Boring plot lines much?
consider that there is a good chance that the good writers were moved to SC2 or the next diablo
or the next expansion. nice how they work on that more than the content they previously promised you
I didnt really think it was that bad, thank god I quit I assume the fight was horrible and boring like the rest of wotlk. wtb sunwell
Tomorrow you're homeless
Tonight it's a blast

Bolvar is taking control of the scourge so he can control them and, with that power, stop them.
Its his destiny to end the scourge, and that's just what he's doing.
With that said, shitty movie, wish they could actually give 11 million players good material
World of Warcraft, ruining Lore at its best ><
always has to be a Lich King? my arse, Kil'jeaden created the first, the scourge are just a friggen tool that could easily be eradicated.
good god i hope they dont ruin Deathwing, o wait.. no doubt they will
