    Why do players hate Garrosh but like Sylvanas?

    I read this question in a WoW blog recently and thought it was pretty interesting.

    Arguably, the two are remarkably similar. Both are ambitious, ruthless leaders whose main concern is the advancement of their own race. Neither really care about the other races in the Horde (though perhaps Sylvanas cares a bit for Elves, which technically are still her own people). Both of them use whatever despicable means necessary to achieve victory. Both of them poison the land around them, and both use chemical weapons or weapons of mass destruction. Both torture. They both have made huge gains for their people in terms of territory and power.

    So, why the difference? The only difference I can really see is style. Garrosh is loud, stompy, and angry. Not very subtle. Sylvanas is cruel and cold, but more quiet, subtle and calm. What do you guys think? Or maybe you hate Sylvanas too? Or like Garrosh?

    You already have the answer.

    Boobs. Nerds love the boobs.

    Jaina wears a long robe that covers everything = nerd hate.
    Sylvanas wears skimpy leather armor with lots of cleavage = nerd love.

    Also a note: how often do people kill the various succubi in the game? That's proof right there.

    I hate them both. If it was me I'd put both garrosh and sylvanas in siege of orgrimmar. After garrosh is dead we backstab sylvanas and get rid of her.

    Garrosh is the biggest threat at the moment, has basically declared war on the rest of the horde. At the moment, Sylvanas isn't a danger to the rest of them

    I personally find Garrosh much cooler than Sylvanas, especially after 5.1 and the 5.4 trailer, he's a guy that leads from the front, and beats style, grace and stuff like that to death with an axe. 'Nuff said.
    Oddly enough, reminds me of a game I had once. In one of the few times I've seen Karma, I was Swain and she supported me once the game started getting moving, and I thought it looked funny as hell cause it looked like an old couple on a stroll and murdering everyone.

    'Cause Sylvanas is hot.

    I think it's more the fact that people don't like Garrosh's character development. It seems like he went from honorable and well intentioned, if a bit reckless, at the start of Cata to a crazy, racist dictator by MoP, without a whole lot of in-between. It doesn't really make sense how he transformed. Sylvanas, on the other hand, makes sense as a character. Sure, they are both ruthless, but I think the "why" is what separates the liking for Sylvanas versus Garrosh.

    Sylvanas has style. She's the sort of evil that makes evil look cool to people that value more than head-to-wall brute force. Garrosh has an utter lack of style in his villainy and hasn't since Wrath turned him into an egotistical dickbag.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.

    Sylvanas has a reason to be pissed off and evil. Garrosh is a spoiled kid.

    Garrosh is the leader of the Horde but doesn't consider the needs of the whole Horde, only his people. Also, Sylvanas doesn't try to assassinate other Horde leaders.

    At least for me, Sylvanas is more gray. She isn't nearly as ambitious as Garrosh and by all evidence just seems to want to have her borders secured. She seems more like the person who would clearly mark off her property and hang a "no solicitors" sign on the front gate. She didn't really want to go and fight the Gilneans... Garrosh kinda forced that upon her. Nor is she showing any aggression to her northern neighbors.

    Plus she gets some points for literally dying for her people, then rebelling against her masters to lead the undead who were unjustly slaughtered to new freedom and prosperity. Garrosh has always been very... grating. Ever since TBC, he's been portrayed as a guy I'd just rather not deal with. Sylvanas was, and is, just an all-around more fleshed out and more well-crafted character.

    Despite being undead, Sylvanas doesn't really show it, so she's "hot." She's also subtle enough for people to ignore her antics while Garrosh openly starts casting people out of the Horde. lol
