People seem to hate garrosh, but why?
People seem to hate garrosh, but why?
because he is a bloodfrenzie maniak? thrall was a some1 who used his brain. the only word/think garrosh knows is slash
also use google/search functions of the forum.
from both my search on the forum and google...
I like Garrosh, he seems pretty badass to me and its nice to see him do some evil shit. FOR THE HORDE!
He was pretty inoffensive in TBC, and became a massive tool in Wrath. Then he got a lot better thanks to Heart of War/The Shattering/Cata, which painted him as a pretty flawed anti-hero/anti-villain with a lot of potential. He could have gone both ways from there.
Then he became a genocidal tyrant complete with WMDs and a personal Gestapo, Christie Golden likened him to Hitler, and Blizzard told us that we're going to depose him for being too evil. Go figure.
Pretty sure as an alliance player I'm not supposed to like the leader of the horde.
but its war?
Because that's exactly the way Blizzard is painting him and wants you to feel towards him; he's the foil to Thrall, who was becoming a bit of a Marty Stu character by Blizzard's own admission.
He's acting brash, impulsive, and bloodthirsty in his decisions and actions and allowing egregious, warmongering thirst for power to cloud his judgement. He also treats his allies, such as Sylvanas and Kael'Thas with little to no respect. They're setting him up for a big fall but time will tell if he'll undergo any character development or any huge realizations before he becomes a raid boss.
Something about his face just pisses me off...
I just hope to see the Darkspear as warchief
Now I know Blizzard is portraying the attack on Theramore as cowardly with the use of the mana bomb, but.... um, how? It's a bomb. Bombs are used in wars. Why is this surprising? Is it because the bomb was a projectile? Does that make everyone who shoots anything a "coward?" If not, what's the difference? Usually, people condemn big bombs being used on cities because of the incredibly high civilian death count that would follow, but all the civilians had left Theramore. Only the combatants remained. It was mentioned in the book, "Jaina Proudmore: Tides of War" that being killed by a mana bomb is especially painful, but I'm pretty sure getting killed by swords, daggers, axes, fire, shards of ice, diseases, and all the other things players use to kill their enemies hurts a lot anyway. And judging from the book, it sounds like those killed by the bomb died rather quickly (contrary to biological and chemical weapons outlawed in real life, as they're not only painful but don't kill immediately). The parallels to the "WMDs" we know of being drawn to the mana bomb Garrosh used just aren't very strong. It's war, after all. Garrosh played the Alliance like a fiddle at Theramore. I'm no fan of Garrosh just because of how headstrong and reckless he is in general, causing discord within the Horde, but what happened at Theramore is A-Okay in my book.

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
So I chose the path of the Ebon Blade, and not a day passes where i've regretted it.
I am eternal, I am unyielding, I am UNDYING.
I am Zethras, and my blood will be the end of you.
Because Garrosh used his brain
...as payment for dinner once
WoW characters that need/deserve to get killed/punished/otherwise removed from the story: Tirion*, Thrall, Malfurion, Wrathion, Sylvanas, Jaina
If anyone geniunely doesn't know what the problem with Garrosh is, go study 20th Century history. Particularly the 30's and 40's period. You'll notice a lot of very obvious parallels.
And comments like "Its war" don't justify it. Not even close. War has rules, and if you ignore the rules then you forfit your own rights.
All I'm saying is, come Seige of Ogrimmar, all the Garrosh fanboys better get used to hearing "Its war" as a responce to their whinings when Garrosh's horde is burned to the ground by the Alliance and True Horde.
I feel his story has been too inconsistent since he was introduced.
Because of his shitty storytelling. He was a trainwreck since the very beginning
