    Except it hasn't been proven. The very first post there explains why the whole idea is a big pile of horseshit.

    Seriously, we know Blizzard bias for some time now, unfortunately it won't change because they have employers like this.

    Imo that is unprofessional behavior, it's obvious that the community is not happy about how the history has been handled so far and eventually they will have to come up with a solution. His tweets only make easier to spot the problem.
    Your casual use of the term "unprofessional behaviour" exposes you as one of those brats that will try to get people fired just because you feel entitled to dictate everything you want about the game. The community is usually in the wrong. The designers are the ones who get to make the game. If you don't like it, show it to all the designers and publishers by simply giving up and stop playing. Then leave the forums alone.
    I am many awful things but at least I'm NOT a Mage. I'm on the gentle side of shit posting.

    I think people are pretty stupid to obsess over it. Nathanos doesn't stick out as an "OC" character at all. He's not a Med'an. At worst he's a Thrall, a character one dev in particular really likes.

    Denseur's a shitty writer, a complete mediocrity of a hack, and his chubby for zombie flesh has been demonstrably bad for the story, but threatening to deep six-the guy isn't ok.

    And they can't create anything better than this.

    But I wouldn't insult or threaten anyone over it...
    It would be a shame to find out you still play the game

    I know the Sylvanas haters have been waiting for confirmation about Blizzard employees having a "relationship" with Sylvanas and they never got it so they went looking for it. Now even if this crap is true you should know that letting a FICTIONAL CHARACTER affect you this much makes you as stick as the guy who is "story romancing" the respective character. If that is what you are experiencing, stop playing the fucking game, it's deranging your mind.

    But I've played this game for long enough to suspect that this is probably another asspull in a long line of asspulls.

    My biggest gripe with this is that Blizzard used "wait and see" (you don't know the full story) so often that currently this nonsensical story of a self-insert is STILL the best explanation for the current stories around the forsaken/horde.

    If it's individual posters, they can be banned. If the post was started encouraging that kind of behavior, then it was shit to begin with. It just depends; I don't know the context of deleted threads on reddit.

    Excuse me, that's is just your assumption based on my comment. I never claimed he should be fired for this, that would be stupid and childish, people make mistakes and can make it right.

    I don't know if you are some kind of cyber internet police that knows everything about someone just because of one "casual use of the term".

    In my experience as a employee of a big company, I received proper training in how to behave and address company business in online environments and on off work time, specially since, I'm not part of the public relations department, just like this guy is just a writer for Blizzard and should be careful about how he exposes his workplace and habits online around his company brand. That is indeed in my experience unprofessional behavior you agreeing with it or not.

    Again, it's not my place to fire him, I'm not his boss, nor I want that to happen but I would understand if that happen, it could happen to me if I behaved like that.

    As a customer of Blizzard products and services for years now, think they have a problem with their recent products, and many people I have seen around forums agree with it, specially on their storytelling department, maybe this kind of "professionals" are to blame? Who knows.

    Burning of Teldrassil fiasco is just one of those many events.

    The designers are the ones who get to make the game. If you don't like it, show it to all the designers and publishers by simply giving up and stop playing. Then leave the forums alone.
    If you just want to manage how I spent my money and make unconstructive assumptions about me, and is not a admin of those forums to restraint my access, I ask to not reply to my comments again. Follow your own advice, if it bothers, you just ignore it.

    Several points:

    1. People sending death threats and harassing people because they don't like the story are nothing but scumbags. I have multiple times stated my disdain for Golden, for example, yet I absolutely despise the people that harassed her over the Sylvanas warbringer. Same thing with Danuser.

    2. It's very easy to just take things out of context and readjust them so it fits their narrative. Look the originals up and see if it's still the same.

    3. People may get angry at Nathanos apparently being able to handle Malfurion, but to be completely honest the Alliance has way too many overpowered characters at the moment. The Horde only has Sylvanas - MAYBE Rommath or Thalyssra (who did nothing yet to really show the extent of their power). So either the Horde needs some serious boosts or, more preferably, the Alliance needs some downgrades.

    It's not just Malfurion but a goddess empowered Tyrande as well. He's standing up not to one but two opponent who should stomp him in an instance.

    Doesn't help with the second part of that paragraph, though. Should he be able to handle them? Definitely not, but some characters are too powerful, to the detriment of the story.

    Bollocks. I've done a lot of witch hunting in Drustvar and am proud of it.
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    I like Drustvar. Let's burn all witches to the stake!

    Well, more seriously, people in big groups tend to have the herd behaviour, especially when everyone gets angry. The medieval angry peasants with pitchforks and torches metaphor is still easily related to our days. People tend to exagerate on their reactions, even in stuff like video games. Life threats are absolutely unaceptable, but people when in a moderate and constructive environment have the right to try to save or make better the stuff (aka the game) they want to change.

    Witch hunts are pathetic, especially when it comes to neckbeards being mad at a video game developer.

    But really any type of Mob-justice is pathetic because whenever a mob of people gets big enough they stop using their fucking brain.
