    Remember when J K Rowling and George R R Martin became awful writers when they did something the fans didn't like? No. Exactly.
    I had to balk at this comment, because Rowling is famously regarded as a scumbag nowadays for not stopping at book seven and trying to milk her series for woke points, and even the usual whales arent having it. So yes, she is regarded as a writer who was not but is now bad because she did something the fans dont like.

    Not a bad comment, just one bad example in the comment. No offense meant, carry on.

    Right, like how they answered the questions of why Grommash is on our side, or how timelines work, or why there isn't an alt-Argus/Archimonde?

    Lore skimping is what killed WoD for me, I like lore and I like reasons for things happening beyond "Draenor is freeeeee!"

    Plot holes break immersion. And that's exactly what these are.

    But how else were we supposed to know that Nagini was an amalgam of Asian-people stereotypes and also people at Hogwarts used to not have bathrooms and just go wherever and then magically vanish the evidence?

    I haven't seen all the Harry Potter movies so I didn't realize.

    Unlock Mag'har orcs. If you have already, then it's on you if you don't understand what is going on.

    I have. There is still no explanation. Grom’s daughter just says there were years of peace or whatever and then Yrel broke it. There was no reason for peace between the maghar and draenei

    • The Process
      • The in game story is planned out days and sometimes weeks in advance.
    • Story in Battle for Azeroth
      • Zekhan was not planned to be in Old Soldier as Saurfang's counterpart, but when players fell in love with him.
    • Cinematics and Cutscenes
      • The Terror of Darkshore cutscene was a moment to show we have no idea where we are going with the story.
    • Storytelling
      • help
    I fixed that for you Blizzard.

    Glad I jumped ship 3-4 months ago... Final Fantasy XIV has suuuch a good story going for it... I had forgotten what it was like to play an MMO with story and RPG elements.

    LOL!

    Well, I heard the word "meaningful" alot, and, uh..........?. Didn't get much else out of it really. Feel like I kind of wasted my time.

    And here I thought this was actually going to be a Q&A. Sometimes I have to shake my head and agree with others that Blizzard seems to be out of touch sometimes.

    IMO, it is as horrible as BFA is.

    Seriously, what the hell that was supposed to be? Not a "Q&A" for sure. What's the fucking point of asking questions among themselves while showing the most embarassing display of self-gratification ever witnessed during these events? I only managed to resist until the thirtieth minute then I just gave up. What a waste of time.

    Or why should we feel sad for Grom's death. I mean, the guy deserved it.

    Feel free to have your opinion. For me personally, FF XIV blows current WoW out of the water. More fun Class design, more engaging storytelling, especially the expansions; Heavensward and Stormblood, the freedom of activity, the lack of RNG-Inception, more engaging music, especially on many boss fights. My guess is you haven't even finished Realm Reborn.

    I've finished it but for some reason I couldn't get engaged as other people. The game feels too instanced at times, it had some good moments but that's actually how I'd describe the game. I love Dragoons though, the classes were well thought out.
