So people didn't rage quit over pandas. So Alliance players woudn't rage quit from getting their asses handed to them at each and every conflict since Cataclysm. So Horde players wouldn't rage quit over being villains.
This. The "LOLWUT PANDAS" reaction after the expansion announcement made them change their marketing strategy a bit. They wanted to go in a more edgy/dark route with it to keep the panda-haters interested. They also redid the Jade Forest zone during beta for the same reason, in my opinion.
Garrosh will die.
They had the rough story line plotted out when they made him warchief in Cata.
When Garrosh was made warchief, his mission in the overall plot was to bring darkness
and dishonor back to the Horde. He is doing the same thing Grom did to the Horde,
but without the demon blood. Thrall could never do things so dark to reignite the
Horde vs Alliance war. So they put Garrosh as warchief to be nasty for a while
then we kill him. Garrosh has to die for the WoW storyline to move forward toward
the next expansion.
Well the circumstances of it all are still very much in question but I think they announced the ending because a lot of people were weirdly hung up on not knowing who the last boss was after the initial announcement.
Well, idk if it's mentioned in the thread, didn't read it through...
..but what if it's a red herring? Like, all of us expect Garrosh to die, it's kept in secret what happens to him like they do with Ra-Den atm, and then SHABAM! Something completely Shyamalan-like happens.
We knew every expansions endboss long before they were released.

I die a little inside, everytime people post such crap. Anything of this is true, or has been stated by Blizzard, except for Garrosh being the endboss.
