    Yes and it was still far from how patheticely weak the alliance displayed now.

    I don't see Sylvanas winning anything. All she does is making the Alliance more angry. At some point even Anduin will hunt down the horde and kill them all. I think Sylvanas wants that. She wants as much war and dead as possible, raise them all and then become the

    LICH QUEEN

    On the face she's winning but on the books, she's absolutely losing. She also lost her main city. Let me rephrase this: The person who started the war lost their own capital.

    So far her only win is the world tree and a small town.
    Her capital is orgimmar not UC.

    The Horde is yet to splinter

    I really dont see how she was meant to stop him. He stop following order and their in the middle of a battle

    I'm dont condone her actions not gonna argue for her

    Shes traded one city for another city while bleeding her opposition for more manpower

    Both Anduin and Sylvanus are not well-written characters. Sigh

    Why couldn't Jainas Ship "HMS Daddy Issues" be the mage class ship? You could even throw 10 people on it and use it to shuttle people to raids lol

    Gameplay wise you already know. Lore generally follows right along or right before. Even besides that generally they work to provide a middle ground in their story telling rather than actual execution of statement. E.g

    Varian saying "we will end you" at the end of SoO.
    Now as players we know that is an empty threat because there will never come a day where an orc player wants to log on and the message "sorry faction wiped out by alliance. You can play human instead".
    And from a lore perspective the horde still maintained control of the areas it took over and there was no military effect on horde capitals.
    At most that statement showed was "right now we are stronger than you are" but that all disappears within one expac too (and honestly not much time was wasted between MoP, WoD and Legion).

    Unless they do (there is a slight possibility) of a total sever wide faction victory, then servers clash by sharding or phasing. But that would take a ton of work. And looking at class balance and raid dates on beta chances of that tech being used this way look slim

    what are you talking about? thats not lore reasons those are game play reasons. the only lore argument you made is at the end of MOP Alliance is stronger then Horde. Which is true but at the same token Horde Allied races so far are MUCH more useful then the Alliances. Again not a reason why its impossible to win.

    Uh... yeah, I think that's how criticising a story works.

    serious question.
    On the retail forum because negative opinions are being deleted or banned. Blizzard forced positivity is a joke btw.

    That lore reason I provided is all that is needed. Blizzard for the sake of business and gameplay will never give one faction total victory over the other. It will always be 50 50 or some debate on who lost more. All of this would just result in characters being lost. The issue this time is, that now we have a fun character on the line.

    Every other leader besides sylvanas is pretty much linear. But as you said, being set up to be a raid boss pretty much (or God forbid, a Sarah Kerrigan)

    Or it's post of the plan that only he and Sylvanas know.

    I get that blizzard can never have total victory but you're reasoning for why the Horde could never win this war is because several years ago the Alliance were stronger then the Horde. Not true but cool

    Hey guys, I bought this flying ship to rescue you all of you, well she almost got sylvanas, just instead of chasing that one single zeppeling with our magic ship, let's just watch them as they fly away. xD

    But remember, technically, she is not an undead, Banshee got together with the undead but they are a spacial kind of it, I don+t think it is correct to categorize them as undead, they are a special kind, just like Sylvanas, they were not fully killed but taken out of their body, left with a lesser degree of consciousness but unable to act by their own will (initially), as they were slaves of someone as Sylvanas was a slave of the Lich King in soul and will.

    It sure is pretty much an undead, but I don´t know how much you could say so.

    Jaina so awesome, best character in game

    And now fuck that horde. If they follow this mad undead queen into even greater sins so be it.
