    Great argument, Bennet. Completely in line with your other posts!

    Well, the reason why they have to emphasize his honor 60 billion times is because his honor is dictated by a magic 8-ball and constantly changes. So perhaps during this cinematic honor was about lying to people to convince them to join you, just like in the previous one honor was working with the boiking and before it was getting yourself captured by the enemy in hopes that he fixes Horde's problems for you.
    What's wrong now Mehrunes, you can tell us man - this is a safe place.

    I mean I'm not endlessly enraged about the game, I don't whine all the time, and my arguments actually do make sense. Why are you so upset all the time man

    Either way it is lose-lose situation for her. Just extremely poor writing overall. Sylvanas isnt stupid. Saurfang reaching out to Thrall for help was kinda obvious. Something Sylvanas should also have anticipated and sent an emissary to Thrall beforehand to counter it.


    My 2 c to Wow writers -- Write your own Game of Thrones and dont turn WoW into one. The Sylvanas of Warcraft III would never have done this.

    I really hope Saurfang is lying to Thrall here about him following assassins. It would make him a piece of shit, but also a so much more interesting character.

    If they succeeded they probably would of covered it up to make it look like some Ogre warband or something. They are rogues after all.

    Thrall doesn't even care about the Horde and returns only because Sylv sent assassins against him (why she thought two no-names could kill Thrall and Saurfang is beyond me, except that Blizz didn't put much thought into it). A third Sadfang Cinematic.

    Way to go on that 'Faction Pride' Blizz

    Everyone should unsub from this game. Everyone should DEMAND better from the writing. Because this? This is patronizing bullshit.

    To everyone bleating about assassins - how would anyone ever find out who did it and how would they find Thrall at all?

    I don't know, the SYlvanas of WC 3 also wasted time when she had Arthas at her mercy, allowing Kel'thuzzad to save him leading to her never getting her revenge on him, and also brought a dreadlord into her inner circle which she paid for a couple expansions into WoW.

    This is Thrall you are talking about. Not some ordinary orc who is going to get killed by an Ogre Warband.

    I mean, is anyone surprised by this? The path was pretty clear the moment they made Sylvi Warchief :P

    But why? I get the writing is shit, but why demand something impossible? You'd get better results demanding gaining omnipotence from the universe than you'd get demanding better writing from Blizzard.

    Well Thrall DID come out of 'retirement' in MOP to stand against Garrosh it's not that big of a leap for Sylvanas to think he'd do the same for her.

    Voljin made her Warchief- she didnt want to be one. He could have made Bane Warchief instead. He didnt. Thrall made Voljin Warchief. So....

    Because you're soooo good at compelling arguments right

    Well, we know it wasn't Vol'jin that made her Warchief - something compelled him.

    Seeing the usual crybabies on this thread whining about things not going their way and blaming or deflecting it on the writing, its hilarious. Pretending you even had things the ball park to begin with is a level of entitlement I could make a reddit post for.

    *sylvanas takes power and does evil things with that power* "This is great, this is how the lore should be now!"
    *rebellion starts because sylvanas' evil starts to break the horde* "Urgh the writings shit now fuck you blizzard!"

    Do you people have no self awareness?

    Aside of that, cool cinematic, tho I hoped Thrall would confront Saurfang about his role in War of Thorns.
    Maybe its shadow warrior reference ? How to kill ultimate ninja who keeps nuclear weapons in his dojo ? Send two zombie ninjas, that should do.
