He featured in the RPG-like campaign about the founding of Durotar that was part of TFT didn't he? With the spirit wyverns and the such. I'm not Rokhan, he is the cool troll they dumped in the Dragon Wastes. Then again, when looking how Chen and Vol'Jin are supposed to be buddies one almost gets the feeling Blizz is attributing actions of Rokhan to Vol'Jin.
By the way, what did Thrall do for the first time? Initially he did the RFC quests and the Ony quests, which on Horde side were less significant than the RFC quests. Then, in TBC he gets the one big thing in Nagrand where he runs in on wolfback, talks with his grandma and begins the build up for the current tier raid. In WotLK he just comes in for the cinematics, in which he isn't actually needed at all (heck, most WotLK cinematics could have been left out without any damage to the story). Cata was his time in the spotlight but by then he wasn't Warchief.
2/3 of voters are horde? Is that really accurate or are alliance players just not opening this thread?
Vol'jin isn't this, I know he's a good guy, but that doesn't mean whats been done is anything positive to it. Fucking up the hordes story, which has been happening throughout mists, and ending with this gobshite conclusion, just for shock value, isn't something that can be ignored.
The warchief makes sense to be a non-orc warchief, the reason Thrall chose to not become warchief, is a good one. Vol'jin is a nice change for the leadership. Orcs have gone in a more interesting direction, where the majority of their heroes are now gone. Thrall leading the orcs makes sense to me, had Thrall been warchief after Garrosh I would have quitted most likely, due to a bad story direction (Thrall has proven before that he can't keep the forsaken in check before an emergency (see post-wrathgate, the orc guards were added pre-wrathgate) and his choice of Garrosh proved to be quite catastrophic). Vol'jin homever I feel, can probably keep the horde in check, (Thrall can most likely keep the orcs in check aside Thrall didn't handle the "Anti-kor'kron/garrosh" thing, vol'jin homever did. It's a better fit for a non-orc to be warchief than an orc...
Also trassk your rants towards Chris metzen and Dave kosak are hilarious.
Monk main Retired til warlords beta/release, undecided about it.
Damn Traask, I've watched you go from being disappointed in this outcome to flat out blazing angry. All I got to say is, keep it up. We know Blizz is susceptible to player outcry, just look at the Allys, they whined for years and years to the point that Blizz finally had to throw them a bone. We get loud enough and Vol'jin might not be Warchief for long.
-Freed the Orcish people from the internment camps
-Reestablished the connection between the Orcs and the Elements, being one of the first "new" Orc Shamans in years
-Was Blackmoore's Best Fighter
-Recieved Warchief from Orgrim Doomhammer
-Founded the "New" Horde
-Promoted peace between the Horde and Alliance
-Brought many races into the New Horde
-Fought in the Third War
-Helped Sylvanas Reclaim Undercity
Just a few examples.
Thrall is awesome, we all know that, what he has done is nothing less than history making. So why does this mean we can't let Vol'jin get to do some awesome stuff as warchief now?

I syppose Traask is always this whiny? Good lord. So many subjective opinions and flaming. Why is this allowed? Then again, it's the vocal minority of the MMO-Champ user base. I guess it's expected.
And vocal minority is proven true by this poll. Anyone who states that "most voters have invalid opinions. This is the reality of the situation" is just a pretentious, obnoxious prick (not aimed at Trassk unless he said that). God damn, people are stupid sometimes when things don't go their way.
Now, after the rebellion, after vol'jin has commanded forces to attack orgrimmar, kill countless orcs, and take command of the horde, does vol'jin intend to help the orcs get on there feet, recover from this, after all he did to kill so many orcs.
If there was any care left in the story in regards to orcs, you would have orcs now saying how vol'jin is an orc killer, and why should they trust him after so much orc blood was spilled because of his actions, and vol'jin having to prove himself to the orcs for that reason.
Like I say, Thrall proved himself in coming to the orcs aid when it counted.
You know what else I thought thought.. as warchief, Vol'jin will be in command of all the horde, but he will also have to deal with everything within the horde, all factions, he will have to deal with blood elf problems, tauren problems, forsaken problems, goblin problems, and the orcs now, as well as his own people.
Do you really think vol'jin has the mantle to be able to handle all that?

I just commented on some, the rest I agree with (not that there is anything to agree with as it's all in the lore)
It was an obvious choice since Vol'jin has been part of the Horde since it existed.
True, I was hoping for Sylvannas or someone else to make the story way more interesting, yet I believe Vol'jin was the right choice.
A lot of the game's timeline is up in there air. It's much more likely that Blizzard just flat out didn't care/didn't have time to work on Vol'jin during that period, and less so that he actually didn't do anything for 6 years.
