We don't have to carbon-copy what vanillia did tho. Just like how we still have raids now, despite them being vastly superior to what vanillia had to offer, we can have high-level quest content that...

Blizzard Problems Inherent in WoW Storytelling?

It was supposed to be placed in an area called "the Goblin Marketplace" but I think that forum was deactivated because of lack of use. So I just put this thread in both here and the general forums.

Art Style of WC3 vs WoW

So even though it hasn't been offically confirmed yet, it's pretty obvious that Blizzard is going to remaster WC3 in the same way it remastered SC1.

There's just one problem. One of the biggest...

There was always this faction called the "Argus Wake" which was a human version (and part of) the Shadow Council from my understanding. They rarely got touched on in WoW except that they were...

That's another thing about morally grey characters/factions too, it's very easy for them to cross moral red lines and becomes unambiguously evil. With the Forsaken now for example, the only way to...

Orc Icon (War3) Nature of the Forsaken

The main question I want to ask in this thread is this: How must the Forsaken be written if they are to be an interesting faction? Or even a moral/empathetic one?

I've always felt like the...

Heh, well to be fair I try to be a tiny optimistic because if not my emotional attachment to the series would self-destruct and probably destroy me.
