    Thumbs down "Tyrande got her revenge"

    Blizz honestly believes that Darkshore was 'revenge' for Teldrassil

    https://www.wowhead.com/news=291733/...-with-blizzard

    Shani began by saying that Tides of Vengeance gave the team its chance to “tell a little bit of Tyrande’s story” but that the focus in Nazjatar is going to shift to delve into other characters and to see more of what Sylvanas and Anduin are up to.

    “I think she had her moment where we told some of her story and she got her revenge for the Night Elves. I don’t think we’re exploring her story too much more in Nazjatar though.” Shani said.

    Morgan picked up the conversation. “The problem is there is so much to be told. Everyone has characters they want to expand on, but we also want to introduce new ones and to find ways to weave those stories together. With Rise of Azshara, the emphasis is on Sylvanas and Azshara herself. They are the focus. There’s just so much happening.”


    And as wowhead's Perculia says

    Blizzard in the interview describes her character arc in positive terms, noting she "got her revenge for the Night Elves." But did she really get her revenge?

    It's not a particularly clear victory for Tyrande, as Darkshore remains a contested zone with no canonical winner, and we learned Sylvanas has the ability to raise Night Elves now. Perhaps we're meant to assume that the Horde retreated from Darkshore around the time of Dazar'alor, as Nathanos left Darkshore, but this is explicitly stated anywhere--and still leaves the Night Elves at a massive disadvantage after the Burning of Teldrassil.

    I feel for night elf players here, really I do. Blizzard really did fuck them beyond repair and this isn't even the climax. Next up is Tyrande forgiving the Horde through the wisdom of the boiking.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    It's official, Blizzard's writers are actively competing against GoT's. This is their reply to "Dany kind of forgot about the Iron Fleet".

    Because a Warfront that can't actually show you the canon outcome without another patch is a good answer. /s

    Don't bother, Blizz. Update Darkshore again and kick the Horde out and give the Night Elves a new home, then we'll talk.

    Well Night Elf players, hope you've got money for a race change

    This is laughable. GG Blizz.

    Tyrand and Azshara: NO MORE TO TELL

    A interview of MMORPG.COM was published today. It talks about Tyrande, Sylvanas, PVP and characters models. The answers about the participation of Tyrande in Nazjatar are dissapointing:

    “I think she had her moment where we told some of her story and she got her revenge for the Night Elves. I don’t think we’re exploring her story too much more in Nazjatar though.”

    “With Rise of Azshara, the emphasis is on Sylvanas and Azshara herself. They are the focus. There’s just so much happening.”

    So Tyrande and Azshara are bitter enemies but they left everything in the past O_o

    So they don't have time for Tyrande or her people, but other characters like Jaina, Saurfang, Genn and Anduin continue to get focus beyond a single patch. Bravo. So night elves are basically a macguffin race at this point, right?

    In Cata they took Azshara and half the Ashenvale from them and given to the Horde, now Darkshore is a constant battlefield, Hyjal is ravaged by servants of Deathwing and Ragnaros, Teldrassil is charcoal, what do Night Elves even have left as their lands? Half of Feralas? The one that isn't taken by harpies, Tauren, ghosts, Ogres or corrupted Green Dragons?

    I guess they can join Gnomes, Worgen, Dranenei and all the other Alliance races that got nothing, but don't worry, at least they can be happy they have "human potential" next to them.

    She has fresher enemies then fish face there isn’t any reason for her to stop her war on the horde for an old grudge.

    Great - So Azshara is wasted to this godforsaken expansion as well.

    There's no Azshara story to tell without the Night Elves. And without Tyrande, the Night Elves have no story there.

    Although it's not really that surprising. The fist pump moment for Alliance in MoP that they were promising them for over a year turned out to be Jaina committing ethnic/political cleansing. If that's fist pump moment, then why shouldn't Darkshore pass for revenge?

    The story is told through Shandris. Who was a child during WotA, I think. Makes sense.

    This honestly makes me a little angry ^^ I don't actually hate BfA's story up to now and while I do have some minor complaints, to me it's not the shitshow many make it out to be.
    But to start it all by burning the fucking tree and have Tyrande talk about Sylvanas committing genocide and then saying 'We threw you a bone, now sit back down and watch what else we're doing'... along with a freaking war that takes place in some strange places and Anduin telling Tyrande that the Nightelves's revenge comes 'later' is... a bit infuriating. Why was taking back Ashenvale and Darkshore and then marching on Orgrimmar not the very first thing that got done instead of... attacking freaking Lordaeron and then Zul'dazar? actually wtf.
    I was hoping that they'd at least be giving the Nightelves some more thought and story in dealing with what happened, not only by giving Tyrande some nice new customization, but by actually giving some closure or at least some more dialogues and an active part in the actual storyline.

    It's called #HumanPotential. Yes, Saurfang isn't Human, but he works with them, so he enjoys a sort of provisional protection. Ditto for Baine.

    But they could bring it up ANYWHERE else.

    Like, there could have been a follow up quest in a subsequent patch. All it would take is one quest - Where it sums up the 'results' of the warfront.

    We have no idea who won in Arathi. We have no idea who won in Darkshore. We're apparently just going to keep fighting for it forever, or until the next expansion comes out and Blizzard decides "Warfronts were just for BfA, so we're removing them in the next expansion, they won't make sense then" but they don't update the zones to reflect any changes.

    OT: I truly feel bad for people who like Night Elves, and I am unfortunately one of those people. BfA has completely stomped on them. Even former Night Elves get shit on constantly (Azshara) and thrown away in minor patches.

    I really hope BfA is almost over, because hot damn - I don't think there's any coming back from the hole they've dug themselves into, and we haven't even hit the bottom yet.
