You should write it and submit it to Blizzard in order to become a writer. Then, work your way up the ranks and backstab Metzen and Kosak... and take over Blizzard('s writing department)!
"All right, I'll get that kid to eat. Where's my screw driver and my plumber's helper? I'll open up his mouth and I'll shove it in."

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.
