In my opinion calling out bad writing after the Sylvanas Warbringer was a legitimate complain because big problems with it, especially Saurfang staying silent, were only adressed afterwards in the novels and the Old Soldier cinematic so saying "Nah, it was only emotional attachment" is objectively wrong because something (of vital importance for big parts of the playerbase as we've seen) happened there in the game that we were only shown in the novel afterwards despite being there in person.And that's kinda bull^&*!.
Ion and John are definitely taking the community lash-out better than I would have. I'm really impressed by their emotional restraint, because if I had all that furious criticism piled on top of me I would be a wreck.
I think sylvanas knows that this has to happen because vol'jin made her warchief because of loa. and loa might know the sequence of events that will unfolden / need to unfolden for our future to be safe. she's immune to voild or olden gods and knows their plan, I think, and they cannot manipulate her or undead like the rest of living things. she can't tell anyone that she knows the olden gods or voild plans or it will alert them that she is aware. Everything that is happening is part of a bigger plan, it all comes down to the loa needing to put her in charge, to set things on a sequence of events.she probably knows that anyone who dies while azeroth is in pain will be able to come back after we heal the planet. Thanks for reading and peace, al
the loa appointed sylvanas wrachief for a reason, let's find out what that reason is. Maybe they forsee events and knew to ensure these events, she had to be pointed leader. Also, on a sideish note, she alsmost seems playful - in a way that one would be playful if they've gone through these events before, or know the outcome, or know that they're not going to die this or that way, and so in a way she seems rather giddy and tauntish here and there. I wonder if she's gone through these events before and we're seeing her go through the motions so to speak, and being slightly playful with the whole thing. Or perhaps she knows the olden gods and voild plans and is working with the loa to ensure they cannot strengthen or get to azeroth.Whatever the case may be, the loa appointed her warchief, and we will eventually find out why it had to be this way. It has something to do with the events to come. Maybe each leader of the horde (and the alliance) will become manipulated, controlled, etc, from the voild or olden gods, and she will be the only one left not affected (and the undead), which will end up being azeroth's only saving light in the enveloping darkness. Yes.YES!
Let me guess Blightcaller is an Old God or a controled thing or some left over demonlord... And Sylvanas was mind tricked all the time. No thx. Boring and cringeful trash. Not quality writing!If they mess up the Azshara video too I will just not buy this exp. Your move Blizzard.
At this point normally Sylvanas would be on her merry way to become next tier raid boss. Oh wait, no more tiers, Sylvanas is Blizz's waifu and there is that dumb Yankee religion called "political correctness" where you have to keep strong female lead character. Solution: kill Sylvanas off with fire/Azerite as the current expansion Old God crazed puppet, promote Liadrin :DAnd MAYBE do some, I don't know, REAL CONTENT instead of no-content short movies? Could be stick figure style like Warlords for all they bring to game, i.e. nothing. Still not gonna buy BFA for that among lots of other bad things.
:Somebody stole the babygate and now the toddlers are running around in this comment section! Catch them!
"first outrage over "Warbringers" and then faith restored in "Old Soldier."What faith restored? The way Saurfang has been acting in the cinematic and the darkshore quests was pathetic, not a single other character, no matter how virtueous, would be against stabbing an enemy in a back then start crying when they did. Then he runs crying to the alliance. If he is the faith restored then it ran off.Then there is that outright lie (as usual) from Lawyer Ion about leveling. Gear scaling fails, mob health unbalanced, dungeons still useless, one shotting enemy spells. Leveling feels more like some slapped together chinese app cash grab game than a billion dollar industry production and Ion says its fixed. Ion once again shows he is completely untrustworthy or just wholly ignorant. I cant tell which would be worse on him really.
