Siege of Orgrimmar - Garrosh Defeat: Horde Cinematic
Spoilers ahead! This version is very similar to the Alliance version, but shows the conversation that was taking place across the room that you can't hear in the Alliance version. Congratulations to Apophasis for getting the 4th kill, the second Horde kill, and being the first to stream the Horde cinematic!

    Of course Vol'jin deserved to be Warchief. And Thrall is the one who named Garrosh Warchief and now selected Vol'jin. Each faction has a leader - Goblins have Gallywix, the Forsaken have Sylvanas, Trolls have Vol'jin, Tauren have Baine, Blood Elves have Lor'themar, so who will be the Orc leader?

    Yeah, I think it should be someone else too.

    My guess would be Thrall since Blizz tends to have a good grasp in terms of cinematography and in the main shot of the Horde, Thrall was the Orc present. While that may change, it certainly seems to be their current plan and the one that makes the most sense as Thrall still feels like he has to take responsibility for appointing Garrosh. It's also the best choice they have in my opinion as Thrall is the Orc with the most connections to the Alliance and I guarantee the next expansion is going to require a LOT of cooperation between the two even if it's not the Burning Legion yet.

    /sighs. This again.

    CONTEXT PEOPLE, YOU NEED CONTEXT before you drop a quote that is almost TWO years old. Come on :S

    When they said that the warchief was not who we expected, was during CATACLYSM, they revealed the new Expansion MoP, and a few days later revealed that Garrosh would be teh final boss. When players started saying that it was practically guaranteed that Thrall would regain his old position of Warchief, THAT is when they said it wouldn't be who we expected.

    Because back then, absolutely everyone expected it to be Thrall. Then they spent the next 2 years building up Vol'jin to be warchief, but still keeping other people in the spotlight to make it a little more ambiguous (hence Lor'themar's awesome display in MoP)

    So true

    I think its a cool choice, and I liked the cinematics - though Jaina sounds like Emperor Palpatine as someone humoristically said it

    Cool stuff though. I'm pretty pumped to hear about the next Xpack now.

    lol i thought the same thing. every one of the other leaders are recent or have had badazz makeovers, but baine looks like a lost barrens nub looking for mankrick's wife.

    I'm happy with Vol'jin as a Warchief. I've always liked the guy, plus he speaks funny. That's a win for me The end of the cinematic is quite interesting to me though. Alliance willing to end the bloodshed ? Hmm, maybe the next expansion we'll be fighting together against something big? I've not played WoW in awhile but color me intrigued.

    Was thinking a more Jaina vs. Slyvannas thing.

    I personally think that she has a hatred for Sly. for destroying Lordaeron and wants revenge.

    So, Garrosh doesn't die, and he gets sent to prison after all. Also, LONG LIVE THE NEW WARCHIEF! LONG LIVE VOL'JIN!

    Gallywix! So he DOES exist! That's an even more shocking reveal than the rest of the cinematic. =O

    What did they do to Lor'themar's boots!! those ugly things are not what he wears. For some reason I always hated that style of boot in the game.
