    Exactly. Meanwhile people complain about Azshara and Nzoth when both made sense. Then again let's be honest BFA was just a huge prepatch for Shadowlands. The same can't really be said of others. The plot for BFA was literally Sylvanas doing things specifically to feed the Jailer. Legion's plot was stopping the Legion, whereas anything BFA related was fairly background level. WoD's plot was stopping the Iron Horde and Guldan was simply a background threat etc.

    or the time Jaina died in that city raid?

    People want to kill Sylvanas they're better off hitting up classic and raiding UC or the End Times dungeon

I mean I don't really think it's a blessing to condemn one half of his soul and to send the other to Bastion so one would assume it was just what happens to everyone. If that is true then perhaps it was really the first version of Sylvanas that the Jailer got his claws into and made a swap at some point(possibly the suicide considering the suicide is practically a retcon at this point as nothing in it makes sense to what she saw). It could be that she got sent to Ardenweald being that she was a hunter and druids and hunters can go there and unlike Bastion they threw her into the maw seeing the mark whereas Bastion though their methods would purge the mark from Uther.

    Just shooting some ideas, no way implying they're what actually happen, but 1 of those options could be possible whereas I doubt the whole thing I wrote would work together.

    She's literally saying NONE of us have control and that's why she's siding with him. That is the entire point of what she did. Have you not watched a single cinematic?
    Ofc a villain trying to corrupt a hero is a reiable source of information right?
    she have nerver lied before right?

    yeah. bonus points if it's Sylvanas raising an overly marketable merchandise option shouting something like "life is free!" or something to that effect.

    actually, Sylvanas had a pretty damn good track record of being painfully honest when Anduin was present. Besides... he is a walking lie detector who can feel malice and ill intent (canon powers post divine bell storyline). I think they would milk that a bit more given Golden's usage of it in her works.

    Sure, and yet we still have people quoting every single old god statement as fact when they LITERALLY by canon tell you a thousand lies for every truth but tell you lies specifically that sound very true but are definitely lies.

    Her case is different as she looks like she's actually telling the truth and torn. When has she actively lied in a cinematic anyway? She doesn't seem to be the type that actually lies short of the misdirection at Darkshore. She'd rather slap you in the face with the truth.

    Also you're claiming she's lying about that then I can easily say "Well how do you not know she's lying about working for the jailer and wanting his plans?" Sorry neither works. She wasn't lying.

    I mean she loves telling the truth more than lying especially when it hurts anyone not just him. However, she actually seemed sad and sincere there.

    If she was honest and he trusted her why they had to force him into service?
    Looking at the last cinematic he is obviously mind controlled

    Will that include a big grin on her face like when she yelled "For the Horde" in the first BFA cinematic, so we know she *means it*?

    My interpretation of her tweets is "Hey, you've already fought Sylvanas in a raid and she was fine, remember? Soo...", and that cheeky emoticon seems to enforce that. Could be just me.

    Except we didn't. We fought a future version of her that is no longer our timeline. I mean it's weird to relate it to an alternate version and simply have the current version escape.

    When Sylvanas

    Genocided the Night Elves, raised her own soldiers as mindless undead slaves, reduced living people to goo, used chemical weapons in order to quickly cleanse the land, including her own territory, of enemies.

    Attempted to enslave a val'kyr watcher for her own betterment, betrayed the people she was leading and went behind their back to scheme with multiple of their enemies, including leading them into a trap at Nazjatar. Oh, and allied with the Jailer, who isn't a good friend of ours either.

    And that's just off the top of my head.
    he just allied himself with the burning legion but ok...

    but anyway, how using the plague to cleanse forsaken territory should be bad? isnt like that the forsaken have any use for fertile land...

    Yeah, pointlessly pedantic as I assumed. Not even sure what you're trying to prove and I doubt any but yourself actually think that line of reasoning has any value.

    Well, first off, city-states, second-off, every "kingdom" in this game is more-or-less based around a single city, third-off, the Forsaken ruled an area about the size that Stormwind does(geographically, at least), owning Trisftal Glades, Silverpine Forest, Hillsbrad Foothills, and Gilneas, with their territory also extending into Plaguelands (keep in mind they won Andorhal, giving them the major foothold in the region). If you want to claim the Forsaken did not have their own kingdom, then literally no other race has one either.
    Sylvanas didn't even win the popular vote, she was elected by an indirect election of representatives. #NotMyWarchief

    i didnt claim anything.
    I am only pointed out that Sylvanas did not destroy her kingdom. she only blew up a city.
    She also only destroyed 1 kingdom and that was the Night elves.

    "Using chemical warfare isn't bad because it doesn't affect the forsaken."

    Oh, okay then.

    It's curious, she never gave a flying s**t about others' choices (or rather, lack thereof), but now she suddenly starts caring once the God King is involved.
