    I keep seeing people posting about Saurfang lying to Thrall, yet 2 fucking Undead Rogues attacked him. Last I checked, the Undead
    aren't friends with Saurfang right now, and he has NOTHING to gain from lying to Thrall, so could you guys please not keep harping
    on that? It's beyond retarded.

    There's a scene in Borean Tundra where Saurfang tells Garrosh what happened when the Orcs attacked the Draenei,
    and how once Mannorth's influence was gone, a lot of the old Orcs were horrified and suicidal for committing so
    many attrocities.

    It was Saurfang who helped them, and even he himself says he doesn't eat pork anymore, because it reminds him
    of the sound the children make.

    Of course, if you actually knew anything about the lore, you'd already know this.

    Which you don't.

    Yeah because a war veteran like Saurfang who has a lifetime of combat experience in tactics and warfare couldn't
    possibly know anything about stealth, hunting, and/or tracking. I mean what would someone who's had the title/rank
    of General know anything about that stuff?

    Nope. How unrealistic.

    These mini CG's are so fucking cool. I wish they could implement those through the game in the story but I know that is not financially feesable.

    And we all know Thrall was coming back at some point. Like duh.

    I hate to break it to ya'll, but Sylvanas is not this stupid. She only sent two assassins to kill THRALL? Nah. This is part of her plan. She needs him to return for some reason. Baine is in chains to bait him into returning. If killing Thrall was her only motive, he'd be dead. She is way too cunning to fail at such a simple task.

    So... she sent two forsaken to get themselves killed?

    I mean, no matter what her 'twist' plan is, she still burned children alive and went Orwellian Dictator in BTS.

    Casualties of war is a necessary evil in winning. Ever play chess? She sacrificed two pawns to get Thrall to make a move on the board. Do you really think she would only send two to kill Thrall? Do you really believe her intent was to kill him this way?

    Most Orcs started off as part Hunter. Going out and hunting for their tribes, that sort of thing. Saurfang is pretty old, and extremely experienced.

    People are discussing coherence about Blizzard's writing. Just let them discuss.

    This was also a world where you had sneaky, stealthy cat-men who would gut you or rip out your throat if they had a chance. Also sneaky, stealthy Arakkoa.

    If you have supposedly tracked two assassins to your mates house you wouldn't open with that? You would shoot the shit with them till they attacked and then you tell him you tracked two assassins to his house?

    You need to go play Warcraft 3, my friend. Chain Lightning, Far Sight, Feral Spirit, his normal attacks by default has him shoot lightning balls at his enemies...

    Isn't the text written in the post incorrect? I mean it speaks aboutt Varok reaching out to someone, but in the cinematics he specifically says he follows the enemy there.

    Is there already an Asmongold response video?

    Nope. How unrealistic.

    The issue people have and why they say Saurfang lied is because he stood there bantering with Thrall about how the Horde needs him instead of going “Thrall, there’s assassins here to kill you!”
    It’s either great storytelling with Saurfang being a liar to convince Thrall to help his vision or terrible fucking writing in priorities.

    That said, I remember people posting about Syl being under the Old Gods influence, but I’m beginning to think it is Saurfang. If we think about it, he let Malfurion live and told 2 NE leaders to not go back to the tree to avoid their death even more, creating dissension amongst the Horde while casting doubt on the Warchief and causing her to burn the tree to attempt the same effect Mal’s death would have caused.
    He then starts showing unease with Syl, who has already pointed out how vulnerable the Horde is to an Alliance attack and why she has to use such underhanded and despicable tactics and starts recruiting people to his cause.
    He then goes for Thrall and, again either great writing or fucking terrible, spends time bantering about how the Horde needs him and then tells Thrall he tracked assassins to Thrall to get him to join.
    Saurfang could easily be corrupted and causing dissension in the ranks to weaken the Horde further.
    Now, I’m not saying Syl is justified and I do believe her acts are truly heinous, but at the same time somewhat justified tactics being done by a weaker army in attempts to crush your enemies spirit.

    This kind of reasoning is what makes me wish I never read this thread in the first place. It's not always black and white. You don't have to hate if you don't love. You don't have to rate 0 if you don't rate 10. Things can be subjective, opinions can differe and things can be different than what your interpretation is. Quite frankly, the vast majority here seem to be too blatantly stupid to understand that. The immediate response seems to be crying "bad writing" the moment you either disagree with something or fail to understand the big picture.

    And no, I'm not telling you that you have to think it's good writing.
