How come Blizzard has such crappy development when it comes to villains?
- Arthas: A story from a prince trying to protect his people and punish the responsible for corruption, ironic that he becase corrupted himself.
- Illidan: The character did everything to save his lands and people, the method were questioned and therefore banished.
- Dreadlords: Such wonderfull creatures... They were smart, cunning, manipulative and still gives me the chill every time I see one of thoose. (That's why I love to finish the quest line against Scarlet Onslaught in Icecrown).
- Gul'dan: My top fauvorite villain of all time in Warcraft Universe. That evil son of a b**** even sold his own people to the Burning Legion, in order to be even more powerfull that anyone could imagine. With the help of the Shadow Council, he truelly got his plans completed. All it took was finesse and cunning.
What did we recieve lately?
- Deathwing: "ROAAAR!!! I will crush Azeroth! ROAAAAAR!!!!"
- Garrosh: Yet another reckless and hot headed who thinks he can crush the world.
I mean seriously, who even gave a damn about Deathwing or does it now in the present? Same faith is waiting for Garrosh. It's like 15 minutes of fame, than forgotten... People still loving the previous villains because they weren't only out to crush the world. They used cunning and manipulative ways. Who ever played WC3 remembers that, such an evil act as turning people into undead / zombies , were only to prepare an massive BL invasion. Which villain has done such an act, which only would be "step 1" to rule Azeroth?
I honestly believe Blizzard is starting to give up on villain aspects... They focus way too much on pleasing respective faction leaders instead (which most people still don't appreciate as much Blizzard hoped for, like dave kosak said in a phone interview).
