    So Saurfang is now lying to trick Thrall to pick up his axe against the Warchief??
    Sylvanas has 0 benefit to send two rogues after Thrall when he is out of the picture for years and years.

    Looks like Blizz wanted their own Stormbreaker.

    Well, I've always imagined it is some kind of fantasy "secret technique" of tiptoe'ing, camouflage or shadow stalk. Not a damn Dark Templar cloak.

    I love the cinematic not because of who, but I really want to see a movie done like this based on lore.

    Is Telaar still around? By looking at the rough area, being able to see OshuGun that is pretty close to Telaar city.

    I'm glad the Mary Sue isn't back, just stepping into a leadership role again. He said he doesn't want it, and Saurfang made it clear that that isn't what the Horde wants either.

    That aside, there really isn't much Blizzard can do with Sylvanas now. Either all these people are against her and she's within the right, meaning the majority of the Horde leadership is going to die for treason (Very Unlikely) or she has proven herself evil beyond redemption sending assassins to kill Thrall, someone beloved by the Orcs, but completely uninvolved in anything. Hell, he fled Draenor completely and is living on TBC Nagrand. At this point, she's at a cartoon level of villainy.

    No one is going to accept and forgive her after this expansion. She either dies or flees the Horde becoming a bigger threat next expansion which we kill her in. She's like an amalgamation of Arthas, Garrosh, and Gul'dan all rolled into one shitty, off the wall, weak storied character.

    Imagine a World of Warcraft 2 with those graphics and scale. Maybe when I'm old and grey...

    Well... I'd rather be a traitor than dead. And in death, you can even become a puppet for Sylvanas...
    Thrall isn't a traitor. Saurfang is.

    Can someone let me know when the music score to this cinematic comes out, that alternate Nagrand soundtrack I could could hear was so good.

    Interesting turn. I always find it funny when I read comments saying "bad writing" from gamers. It is not your story. Dont feel it is right? Write your own story.

    Enough people argue about Sylvanas so I want to leave that aside for now. Also along with everyone else - the quality of this cinematic is beautiful.

    BUT:

    Toward the beginning of BFA or shortly before the devs said something along the lines of both factions being able to have pride in their side this expac.
    Unless you are an orc (or very possibly a Tauren or Troll) where is your faction pride coming from as Horde? Twice now we are being split apart for the sake of a leader apparently gone power mad, or something. Once again, apparently, Thrall is the only one who can save us. Is Thrall the only thing holding the Horde together, ever? How are the "lesser races" supposed to feel about this? How should this bring about faction pride?

    Not to mention the sort of questionable decision to write the same storyline twice now but instead of having lesser character be the big bad leader who needs to be brought down, instead choose a faction leader many people have loved for years. I'm just trying to find some out here that doesn't end in crushing Sylvanas or some hamfisted redemption plot and I can't see it.

    lol all these Garrosh comments. How silly.

    Don't you guys have something more important to complain about?

    Same! Blizzard is KING of cinematics and a wow movie using that still would have been a HUGE success but I doubt they have the balls to ever do something like that.
