    Garrosh WoW's version of hitler?

    Before I start the thread don't get all in an uproar about the post it was just an idea I had based off of what blizz has given us for the lore so far.

    My question is this, Garrosh goes back in time to create a new horde the "Iron Horde" and eliminate the "inferior" races of Azeroth. Isn't this basically what Hitler did during world war 2? Anyone else think this or have any other thoughts about the topic?

    I am a firm believer that these discussions never go anywhere constructive. These comparisons are too strongly tied to personal opinions on very hot topics and bringing them up is asking for trouble deliberately chasing down trouble like a starving lion on an all trouble diet. Given the opening to your post you knew this and yet still decided to post the topic anyway...

    There's probably a reason why the last part of SoO is called 'Downfall'.

    I am not chasing down trouble like a starving lion, this topic will spur a discussion that while you may not see it constructive or interesting others might find it interesting. Everyone has inspiration for their stories, it is out in the open that the Empire in star wars is based of nazi germany. The uproar I was trying to avoid were posts like yours putting down the topic. There is trouble in almost every thread on this forum you can't avoid it. I'm just hoping to have a meaningful discussion around some of the troulbe that people will give.

    Yes, Hitler went back in time to create an Iron Horde to invade Europe with too.

    He would if he could.
    The common man is like a worm in the gut of a corpse, trapped inside a prison of cold flesh, helpless and uncaring, unaware even of the inevitability of its own doom.

    Maybe it's based onthe Hitler from Command and Conquer: Red Alert. The allies sent a man back in time to kill Hitler to stop world war 2. Wait... I guess he wasn;t the one time traveling that time, never mind.

    I'm a somewhat believer in Godwins law. So this thread was doomed from the beginning.

    Nope, he's just what every true orc should be like.

    You should listen to the interview that was posted yesterday. At first they wanted him to start a new "mongrel" Horde, with all the lesser, unaccepted races, like the gnolls, centaurs, kobolds, the basic Azeroth reject. And since they had plans for Warlords of Draenor and Garrosh's role in it, they decided for a new approach of a more Proud Orc.

    And just so you know, Hitler was not the only nacionalist, there are nacionalists who would take the same route even now. And this applies to every country, since every country has nacionalists.

    Thought it was pretty obvious, even the 4th wing is called ''Downfall'', like the best and most popular Hitler movie:



    As for C&C, it was Einstein that traveled back in time TO STOP HITLER :P

    welcome to 4 months ago. I made this exact comparison right when 5.4 was almost released.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    So how do you explain that Garrosh isn't dead yet? Did Mao arrive and take him to China, so he can escape and travel back to the 12th century to build a massive mongol invasion force to invade the world with?
