You're pretty cool. You should tweet this to Kosak or a CM.

NGL, I was kind of hoping against hope that the WoW panel at BlizzCon would be "We know we screwed up, here's how we're gonna fix the story in 6.1."

Buuuuut they did kind of admit there were too many orcs from what I hear so. Baby steps?

The best way they could knowledge their screw ups is by changing the mists of pandaria ending or tell a meaningful story with a meaningful ending that happened during mists.

I didn't say the Alliance situation was good Fojar, infact I said it was pretty shit, but it's better than the Hordes.

As a Tauren (current Main) it makes fucking zero sense why my character would fight for/with the Orcs or Forsaken. The Trolls should've long fucked off on their own and so should the Tauren. The way Garrosh and the Orcs bullshit gets quickly forgotten/ignored is nothing short of laughable. Atleast as Alliance you can still call them for what they are (murdering savages) but as non-retarded Horde races? You still have to play BFF's.

It's fucking retarded.

The Tauren and the Trolls should lead the Horde.

Talking "Tell, don't show" strikes again!

Don't forget that 90% of the orcs were rebels, Hammer.

As it is, two of the Horde races (Tauren and Blood Elves) should have defected to the Alliance if it were not for gameplay mechanics. Of course a Tauren player should have no idea why he's fighting alongside Orcs and Forsaken.

So some of you are talking about some kind of faction voting thing going on now.

What is it, and is it something any of us can vote on?

Another retarded contest. Just go to Forthealliance.com and register. I hope they won't be dumb enough to just reward one faction again.

At least we can now say that the Horde lost something in the war.

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.

Honestly, this expansion would have been a good opportunity to flesh out someone like Ariok to become a suitable Orc faction leader.

Oh well, I guess.

I knew what happened to him going into the expac, still totally caught me off guard when he's like, "Yo, see ya" then jumps from the top of that shrine.

I knew he would die but not how, thought it was awesome that he turned into a hulking berserker without going evil. Always seems like when good Orcs die, they at least go out in a badass way. Ga'nar, Broxigar, Ariok, etc.

I aint gonna believe Ariok is dead until I've seen his body. And since I never watch his fight, he aint dead !

Dude, Ga'nar, best character in WoW ever. I knew what happened to him too but I highly underestimated the level of metal brutality that guy contains.
