It makes sense. Why would you drive each other to extinction when you can have peace...? We didn't slaughter the Germans did we?
The end game of war is a peace treaty, not an annihilation.
Exactly what armies does Grom still command that we couldn't wipe out? We should have just killed him.
The BlizzardWatch Podcast summed up the whole Grom mess up well. Starts at about 46:10.
Blizzard basically tried to say "Look, Grom's a good guy after all" without giving us any reason to believe he isn't just a prideful asshole that wants to conquer Draenor. The players called them on it, and now they're trying to find a justification for not clapping Grom in chains or just killing him on the spot.
inc Grom Hellscream, Warchief of the Horde, once again teaming up with Thrall.
Metzen's only reason for fucking up the entire timeline and this expansion becomes clear. He's basically a new attempt at what Garrosh should have been.
It does make sense. But, at this point, you're better off letting it go and dealing with it than having pointless discussions that will lead no where. It's their story, they'll deal with it the way they want to.
Their reasoning makes sense, if it was shown in game better would have been nice.
I was pretty much under the assumption that the expansion was largely about the epic battle going on in Draenor between the Orcs and Draeni, so seeing the "hey let's just be friends" ending is a bit weird. Don't think it makes much sense either.
It's so goddamn silly that they trot out this ridiculous justification for there being peace, but stick to their guns on the Horde/Alliance nonsense.
Like, I'm fine with either theme, but you have to be fucking consistent here.
The biggest problem with Grom being "at peace with us" is that he was personally, not at a table in some command center but there in person and giving orders within a 100 yards of us, responsible for the deaths of civilians. Like Yrel's sister who was on a table being sacrificed for a dead naaru's power. By Grom's order.

All classes to 100. Check. Currently playing Final Fantasy XIV. Homogenization is extreme, but classes are still fun.
My opinions: 5.0 was the golden age of content, the pruning was far too light and HFC is the final raid of WoD.
No, he should not get a free pass. Draenei are forgiving, but they are not retarded pushovers.
there's a difference between learning to live with those you don't like (tolerating) and cheer hand in hand in a celebration.
what bugs me is that there's NO HINT of any grudge between Grom, Yrel and Durotan. it's like they've been buddies all along, this is BULLSHIT. the entire expansion has been about Grom fucking shit up for EVERYBODY. Yrel's sister died because Grom wanted Ner'zhul to provide them with something "useful" or have their entire clan killed.
isn't that atrocity? the fact that Grom came to shadowmoon valley and ACTUALLY SAW the shit Ner'zhul was doing with sacrificed Draenei civilians and then nodded in approval. is that not atrocity? he sunk into some pretty low standards, and to give him a ticket out by saying "well he saw what the legion in hellfire citadel" is a bullshit excuse by Blizzard dev team.
I'm fed up of the Alliance/Alliance races being "above" revenge. It seems to be the only way they are able to write that side. Thrall gets to kill Garrosh, right under our noses... Yrel doesn't get justice for her lover, her family, or her people. It's pretty poor IMO. Grom is far from a mighty conqueror such that anybody "needs" to truce with him; he has basically no followers left once the story gets to that point, killing him would be easy.
It's pronounced "Dur-av-ian."
