    Most likely 8.3 will be centered around the theme of the next expansion. Just because the war campaign is over doesn't mean there's nothing new coming before 9.0.

    Thank you for sharing your opinion.

    Please don't speak for everyone though. I disagree with you, thus the first part of your statement is wrong.

    Well that's really underwhelming storytelling.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    Next expansion we will find Saurfang taking a shower under a waterfall and notice that it was all just a bad dream. Did such a plot line ever happen anywhere before? Well, who cares...recycling is "in".

    It's actually an interesting bit, I thought. Sylvanas lost twice in that fight, though she could have actually won and had everything. Her temper got the better of her. "The Horde is nothing!" got her in trouble, but she could have gotten through that. The fact that she used magic to blast Saurfang violated the ceremony of Mok'gora. None but the Forsaken would have possibly followed her after that. Even the most bloodthirsty of the orcs would have turned away from her with the way she violated that sacrament.

    And you know that's not true.

    Why do you have such an urge for everyone else to share your views and opinions, and why are you unable to accept that some people think differently? Why do you want to try to spread negativity on a game - hell, why are you even on these forums and play the game if you think it's so bad?

    And if you're gonna say that you play classic and not retail, then my god that's ironic.

    Isn't warcraft based on having two different factions fighting against each other?

    This is the most ridiculous thing I've seen.
    That was my point, we are (pretty obviously at this point) headed toward a one faction, or no faction, system. All that means is we'll have more people to play with.

    PvP can still work. All you have to do is add some lore reframing it as gladiatorial games, and boom.

    Warcraft is not just Horde vs Allie. If you wanna get lore technical, in the grand scheme of the warcraft universe of conflict, the horde vs ally conflict ranks VERY low in terms of importance. Shocking, true, statement.

    I just watched the cinematics at home with sound and I must say, it's a satisfying end, especially to someone who hated Sylvanas. Saurfang got his honor. It seems Thrall may be burdened with the mantle of Warchief again. "We don't get to hide."

    Just wondering why Sylvanas would reveal to the Horde her master plan in which the Horde was just being used, she was winning Mak'gorah. Seemed like Blizzard's way out to rushing the end, she wasn't in a position where she had to be overthrown yet if she was about to kill Saurfang and win anyway. It's not like Thrall, Anduin and Zak'han could have made a line. "Ok, my turn!" Oh shit, you killled Anduin, ok, I'm next!" Sylvanas would have remained Warchief, continued to benefit from throwing meat shields at N'zoth, and crushed the Alliance while at it, unless she herself doesn't want to lead the charge against N'zoth and hide in the sidelines while the Alliance/Horde throw themselves at N'zoth?

    To say he was an Orc in a shell is a bit disingenuous.
    arthas was corrupted by at first mal'ganis and then again by the runeblade frostmourne.

    but i agree, what they made of him was what we fought, ner'zhul was all-but gone.

    This was pretty disappointing, nothing more expected from BFA.

    NEs got the shaft completely.

    Anduin is bloody pacifist betrayer. Alliance is completely a joke in this story.
    Delete the entire Alliance faction, and nothing will change. Absolutely nothing will change in this stupid story.

    The cinematic itself is not even interesting. no even close to the level WotLK or TBC epicness. It is just brushed with beautiful CGI.

    Ye, totally not Garrosh 2, morally gray my ass!

    Blizz has just spit in the face of half of its players, by their ridiculous and overwhelming horde fanaticism and bias.

    I was going to resub after a year, but hell no, I will wait till Blizzcon. That's their only shot left.

    All fine. But why such a horrible storyline that ruined several of the more interesting characters and is even a downright copy of the garrosh storyline? I mean they worked together against Garrosh, they worked together against the Legion....and then they get split by the burning of Teldrassil to suddenly notice "oh great. Let's be friends now. And this time for real because Sylvanas is evil out of whatever reason."? A good story has an unexpected plot twist that still makes sense...but this here was expectable(as we had seen it before with Garrosh) and does not make much sense on top of it.
    You had the Loa of Death, Nzoth, Azshara, a possible destruction of Azeroth due to that huge blade...but what they need to unite is Sylvanas turn lunatic? Why?

    My thoughts after seeing the cinematic.

    If N’zoth was smart he’d let the Alliance and Horde grow soft before executing his plan. Sylvanas said it in the opening BFA cinematic, the cycle of hatred is what makes them strong.

    Breaking that cycle will be their undoing.

    If there is a time skip of let’s say 10 years of peace next expansion, it could explain the level squish.

    Splitting your playerbase in 2 never made sense from a design standpoint.
    Unifying the factions never made sense and still doesn't. Don't like horde v. alliance, don't play warcraft, it's a core part of it whether you like it or not.
