Is this speculation or are you saying that you know what's going to happen?

Is this a guess or from BlizzCon?

Chris Metzen: Right, of course. Uh. Yeah, Fargo, what's up with that?

I would have thought that an island sliding on a tectonic for miles across the ocean in relatively no time flat would cause destruction enough.

You know this how?

Also, this makes me sadface. Theramore is my favorite of all the human things. Its just about the last place I'd want or like to be destroyed.

From exclusive press event, of course. Taiwanese media were interviewing Tom Chilton, and that's what he said. If you believe me in the past, then you can believe me this time.

If she didn't want it wrecked she shouldn't have put that huge highway in there and used it to attack Horde territory.

What was the Horde supposed to do? NOT attack the large enemy port?

It was destroyed when it was ignored for 6 years (not even on the maps) and on the 7th was said to vanish due to lame ass implausible (even in a fantasy world) excuses.

I believe in Curlly Dent.
Did this press event mention any timeframe for said destruction? (within a year, within one and a half etc)

edit: dear lord, i missread it as Kul'tiras - Theramore? WHY? Garrosh! Y U piss off the one person in the Alliance that wants Orcs to be free and ressourcefull?

(ah, right, he's an idiot, i forgot.)

Wow... totally brain farted that one. Not even sure how I misread that... I'm way too sober I guess.

/dumbass

Theramore getting destroyed is actually interesting. Ignore all my previous whining.

I'm not sure if you're serious. Are you saying that you've verified this information?

We only see the highway and what the highway does to the Barrens. The zone was updated, but not with Cataclysm. Theramore does not even get a final hour. So it seems.

Ok. Here's the source.

http://gnn.gamer.com.tw/2/58892.html

http://www.gamebase.com.tw/news/news...ews_category=1

Gamers.tw and Gamebase, and a few more Taiwanese media were interviewing Tom Chilton in the first day of Blizzcon 2011. And today they release the interview report. If you can read Chinese, then you will find out that both of the medias speak almost the same. I will see if I can get the original interview record file. Wait and see. But for now, there's no reason to doubt it. You remember the new Jaina novel is going to be epic and bring up a big change event, right? And this make sense.

Let's hope Jaina doesn't die because, if she does, Anduin might turn into mini Varian.

I ink this is stupid. Horde were bitching about the Alliance having a mini city in the form of Theramore and then they got Bilgewater Harbor which is infinitely better and now the Alliance gets it's best non capital city destroyed while the Horde keep piling them on.

Fuck that.

Give the Alliance Stromgarde and Gilneas and stop making the Alliance bases complete shit compared to the Horde ones, Warsong Hold vs Valiance Keep, Dragonmaw Port vs Highbank. This is retarded.

I would far prefer Kul Tiras to be destroyed than Theramore.

Yes. Jaina dies in the event that causes a change in her outlook and personality.
