I would *love* to play through that.Amazingly apropos, and well stated. Thank you.
Many Alliance players feel that the attention the Horde is getting is actually something we players appreciate. It isn't. CDev is putting us through the wringer. It's a good story, I'll give them that, but it is also heart-wrenching for anyone who believed in what the old Horde stood for.
Imagine for a moment if the "story love" the Alliance received consisted of: Varian has snapped and killed Moira for attempting her uprising in Ironforge, and has placed the entire city under marshal law. One of Varian's goons has shattered the diamond-Magni, killing him. The Gnomes have fled Ironforge and now are a scattered people. Velen has become increasingly distrustful of the darkened nature of the Worgen, and he is attempting to leverage his influence to oppose involvement in the Alliance. The Night Elves are engaged in a violent, internal war, with battle lines drawn between those pro- and anti-Highborne -- Magi versus Druids. Human commanders and generals are making deals with the Defias Brotherhood to attempt to overthrow Varian. Anduin is conflicted, caught between his love for his father and his love of peace.
Interesting story bits, sure... but would you feel good about playing through any of it? It's depressing stuff.
