Ok so this thread literally manifested itself in my mind as I read the onslaught of stupid QQ posts in the other threads relating to the end cinematic. How is this ending so hard from some of you thick-headed numbskulls to understand? It's honestly the only logical ending. Here let me shut down EVERY issue you QQers can find with this.
1) If the aspects were created to contain the old gods, why are they losing their power to fight deathwing instead?
How is this an issue for you? Did you all forget the discussions had RIGHT before 4.3 came out, when we talked about the new dungeon, end time? Deathwing was a TOOL of the old gods. The Hour of Twilight was THEIR creation, so in essence, this WAS their charge. They DID their job by stopping Deathwing.
2)That's SO lame that they lost their powers!
Umm yeah, they just poured all they had into the Dragon Soul and that final fight with Deathwing. I think I'd be a LOT angrier if they had just stood up, brushed themselves off, and walked off uneffected.
3)Aggra's preggo? Great, just what we need...
Oh shut the hell up. You knew this was going to happen since the 4.2 quest where you save thrall from being torn apart by the elements. In the water part you see one of his greatest desires was to have kids with Aggra. Get over it.
4)What about all the plot holes? Lore's dead. QQ
You're right. Lore is totally dead because this happened. Except....it's Blizzard. They always have plot holes. It's hard not to in such a large and immersive storyline. I'm fairly certain none of the plotholes will ruin the game and any glaring conflictions in future story-telling will be worked around and tied up. It's obvious you expected good lore for this in the first place if you're making this arguement so maybe have a bit of faith some more, and wait for blizz to take care of these holes later.
Now, I'll admit, the cinematic was underwhelming, and I expected better, BUT it did not deserve the 25 pages off QQ it recieved. For real, use your brains for ONCE, WoW community, and maybe we could actually have a REAL discussion.
TL;DR - You don't get a TL;DR. I typed this whole thing from my phone, so you can read all of it.
