乐队的代表人物精英牛头人酋长在《风暴英雄》中的形象

精英牛头人酋长Elite Tauren Chieftain(缩写ETC,其他名称见后文)是由暴雪娱乐的员工组成的一支美国乐队。乐队的虚拟角色“牛头人酋长”在魔兽世界中以部落成员组成的乐队出现,并保留了现实乐队所用的70级精英标志。他们的创作主要围绕着魔兽世界的相关主题,最近也扩展到星际争霸暗黑破坏神主题。乐队在2003年推出了他们的第一首歌曲Power of the Horde——魔兽争霸III:冰封王座的主题曲。

历史

Icon-time.svg 本段的内容可能需要需要更新

精英牛头人酋长起源于一群制作封面歌曲的暴雪员工,后来发展成表演独特歌曲的乐队。在魔兽争霸III:冰封王座的开发过程中,一个想法出现了——乐队可以在游戏的最后制作名单中做一些有趣的事情,比如演奏一首魔兽主题的战歌。由于没有足够的时间来写全新的音乐,乐队将他们现有的歌曲之一重新填了魔兽主题的歌词,创造出了Power of the Horde。由于人们希望见到更多歌曲,精英牛头人酋长最终开始不停地创作更多歌曲。[1]

2007年7月16日,当时名为70级精英牛头人酋长的乐队发行了他们的第二首歌——"I Am Murloc"。2007年8月4日,在当年的暴雪嘉年华上,乐队演奏了两首新歌:"Rogues Do it from Behind"和"Terran Up the Night"。

2008年6月29日,在法国巴黎举办的全球邀请赛上,70级精英牛头人酋长表演了Power of the HordeRogues Do it from behideTerran Up the NightRaise Some Hell(联动暴雪新宣布的暗黑破坏神III)和I Am Murloc几首歌。每首歌演奏完后,乐队就“升级”两次,于是乐队升级成了“80级精英牛头人酋长”。[2]不过乐队还没以新名字发布过新的作品。

自从2014年暴雪嘉年华闭幕式上模板:Wp的闭幕演出后,ETC就没有演出过了。Samwise Didier曾经表示,乐队一定要再表演一次,但是当时的风暴英雄团队也是星际争霸团队——这意味着团队不得不在暴雪嘉年华之前同时进行两个游戏上的工作,导致乐队没有练习的时间。[1]

名字

  • 乐队最初被称为“十级牛头人酋长”,因为魔兽争霸III:混乱之治中英雄牛头人酋长的所能达到的最高等级是10级。
  • 在2005年的暴雪嘉年华,乐队更名为“60级精英牛头人酋长”(L60ETC),因为魔兽世界的等级上限为60级。
  • 随着燃烧的远征巫妖王之怒的发布,玩家的等级上限依次提升至70和80级,乐队也依次更名为“70级精英牛头人酋长”(L70ETC)和“80级精英牛头人酋长”(L80ETC)。
  • 大地的裂变发布后,等级上限提升到85级,而乐队却改名为了“曾被叫做‘80级精英牛头人酋长’的乐队”(TAFKAL80ETC[3])。
  • 熊猫人之谜版本等级上限提升到90级,乐队又将名字改回了“90级精英牛头人酋长”(L90ETC),因为“曾被叫做‘曾被叫做‘80级精英牛头人酋长’的乐队’的乐队”这个名字不适合印在衣服上。
  • 星际争霸II世界观中26世纪的遥远未来,休伯利安号的电视广告中,乐队以“800级精英牛头人酋长”的名字出现,并积极参与宇宙间活动。
  • 2014年,乐队决定将名字改为简短的“精英牛头人酋长”(ETC)而不再“升级”。

At rest

The Tauren Chieftains can otherwise be found at rest in Silvermoon City's Walk of Elders on a balcony overlooking the walk. Their stage manager and stage tech, Michael Schweitzer and Roitau respectively, both sit below the band. Their purpose in Silvermoon City was initially uncertain, but it has since been learned that the band is placed there as part of the Children's Week quest chain for Horde players, which begins in Shattrath City.[4] Performing emotes to them, such as cheer, will cause them to respond in turn. The band and their manager remain friendly to Alliance players and will still respond to emotes.

BlizzCon 2005

Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain (L60ETC) is undoubtedly best known for their multimillion-selling single, "The Power of the Horde," a track that appeared on their 2003 album "Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne." In addition to the hard-rocking, heart-thumping tunes it contained, that album might best be remembered by music lovers everywhere for the popular little computer game that was included as a bonus feature on the disc.

The band performed at BlizzCon 2005 on October 29, 2005. This performance was recorded and included on the Burning Crusade Behind-the-Scenes DVD.

BlizzCon 2007

Comin' straight outta Outland: Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain invades Southern California once again to perform at BlizzCon. Taking a break from their massive multi-world tour of Azeroth and Outland, Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain is gracing the mortals in Anaheim, California with another evening of power, majesty, and metal! The group's last non-Azerothian performance, the final show of the highly successful Storm, Earth, and Fire World Domination tour, took place at BlizzCon 2005, where they received a hero's welcome and even had the multi-platinum recording artists, The Offspring, close the show for them. Now, having levelled past their previous name -- Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain -- the crunching chords and pounding war drums of the newly dubbed Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain will once again be echoing throughout the Anaheim Convention Center's main arena at BlizzCon 2007. Exclusive to BlizzCon attendees, the concert will start at 7:30pm on Saturday, August 4, preceding the other live entertainment that evening. Get there early because seating will be first-come, first-served.

WoW BlueTracker

To celebrate the upcoming BlizzCon event on August 3rd and 4th, Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain will be making a guest appearance beginning tonight at midnight at the new Darkmoon Faire location outside of Shattrath city! They’ll be shaking Shattrath to the ground with their performances at the top of every hour for the duration of BlizzCon, and showing everyone the true Power of the Horde![6]

Possibility of quests

Questionmark-medium.png 以下为理论推测和演绎,不能被当做官方说明。

The possibility of quests related to The Tauren Chieftains has been suggested due to comments by the band's manager, Michael Schweitzer, who has alluded to the possibility by saying, "We're not currently hiring for the show or the crew, but you can always check back later. Who knows what will arise?"
