Id like that, from an alliance perspective Saurfang was pretty likable.

it was really just a cop out to make him die.
lorewise we shouldnt have been able to kill the lich king, the only reason we got to icecrown is because arthas wanted us to
But you seems to forget that we as players took LK's attention, and one of the reasons why LK succeeded was becuase he cought Arthas offguard, becuase he was so busy turning us to undead.
I really don't see a problem having such a minor role here. It made a sense to me, and as long as story is enjoyable I can deal with many things.
Besides, this chapter is already over, and we cannot do anything with it.
PS, I love that famous joke whih got spread after ICC was revealed :
"It took Tirion a whole fight with Lich King, to remember to use Every man of himself to get out of ice block"

If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
We don't really know. All super charged like that, he might have been able to break frostmourne head on.
Seems kind of funny though. How does the light's champion and leader of the Argent Crusade defeat his enemy? Strike when his back is turned...
Jaina: had her city nuked
Thrall: just had all the effort he put into the Horde nearly erased.
Vereesa: Just had her Husband killed, Not terribly special, plus it was Rhonin, Warcraft Lore fans should've cheered for that death.
Vol'jin: Got annoyed with the Warchief, granted Hellscream does have an attitude, and starts to develop his own attitude towards Garrosh, after being sent to the Slums he leaves Orgrimmar, he nearly gets himself killed for what he's said later on etc...
Baine: Just had his father killed in a duel that WAS to the death, Cairne himself agreed to that.
But Saurfang? When Saurfang was stationed in Northrend, he did try to teach Garrosh what he knew, but was also worried about the path that Garrosh may take the horde down
"I won't let you take us down that dark path again, young Hellscream. I'll kill you myself before that day comes..."
--Saurfang to Garrosh (Warsong Hold)
"...It is unfortunate, then, that Hellscream employs such savage tactics. As victory approaches, Hellscream gains further justification for his methods, which in turn brings us closer to a place we have not been in many years: a dark place."
--Letter from Saurfang
Saurfang has expressed his concerns more than once, and to be honest, even though Thrall has tried hard to lead his people away from that "Dark place" Saurfang would be much better just from a story telling perspective. Thrall had only heard about the blood curse and saw the lethargy that followed, while Saurfang Had drank the Blood of Mannoroth, in fact he's one of the oldest Orcs alive today. Having been around and leading forces from the Sacking of Shattrath to the Siege of Stormwind, Finding himself Doomhammer's second in Command after Blackhand's death. He never lost a battle until the Horde got routed at the end of the Second war. Post Blood Curse, he didn't use the Demon Blood as an excuse for his actions and actually helped a lot of older veterans come to terms with the atrocities they had committed. If anyone in the Horde knows just how bad things can get when the Orcs give themselves over to Corruption, it's Saurfang, have experienced, pre and post Blood Curse Life.

And you're highly underestimating Trolls, surely they're not as strong as Taurens, but they're the swiftest and most agile among other Horde races, Darkspears are the weakest of all tribes, but they're still stronger than many other races, thier agility combined with strenght they have makes them already great fighters, and Darkspear veterans are one of the most acomplished and renomed warriors,- at least this is what is Blizzard's description in one of the guides.
Besides Vol'Jin is Shadow Hunter, and they're trained to deal precise strikes. One Siame Quasi can match with a platoon of blood/ high elven troops.
And he WAS NOT bitchslapped, he was assasinated. You can't have much to do in such situations do you? Or do you know people with slitten throat to fight back? that would be amusing story. Surely that game mechanics made it look like it could be prevented but from the story description it really wasn't.

How noble of you - to blindly kill without question, to come for my head on the barest word of another. Sheathe your fury and hear my tale first. You'll see what noble ignorance has done to these lands.
