    Last I checked, the innocent civilians of Teldrassil and the innocent Derek Proudmoore were not in the way.

    Forsaken lore became to retarded to save at the start of cata. We had a near unlimited supply of new forsaken in Northrend with the defeat of Arthas. And instead of letting forsaken help them getting released from the retarded new lich king control they chose to make them raise new ones.
    Forsaken had one thing in mind. Getting revenge on the one who raised them. Why the fuck would they do it also ? And why the fuck new forsaken would follow them ?

    Calia is just a new retarded idea to make sure that the forsaken don't look to much different than humans. That was the last race to Anduinify. Calia is not a forsaken, she is a Menethil and she is useless.

    Yeah sure, that excuse didn't help a certain group of people at a certain trial irl and it definitely didn't help Garrosh at the Celestial Trial.

    Sorry buddy, whether you actually carried out the act yourself or not, you're still responsible for ordering it.

    We are the Forsaken and we will slaughter anyone who stands in our way.


    People fail to understand that it's more like a metaphor of a dead nation trying to rebuild their lives back and want to be left alone. A metaphor that will go against those who want to exterminate them as monsters. They simply want to rebuild their old kingdom and not starting killing left and right. Personally I am very glad they got Calia, Voss and Derek. They will change the Forsaken at what they intended to be.

    Yes, and as we know from the Celestials, Garrosh did nothing wrong and was always fated to get out. Everyone else had to learn and grow from his experience on the stand.

    No, it's not a metaphor, it's literal, because they'd physically killed the Lordaeronian humans not five seconds ago, much like it takes you three quests in Vanilla to get to the Forsaken talking about a new world order. The Forsaken characters of TFT are Sylvanas and Varimathras, their lines and actions are the sum of their WC3 identity. Again, you aren't fooling anyone with this bs, I don't know why you even bother, there's no ambiguity to slaughtering anyone in your way or to a new world order. Just adopt the straight-up position of shilling for Calia without any of the 15-year Forsaken identity which is ravaging you at this very moment, it's intellectually honest and doesn't require any of these asinine logical contortions.

    ALL FACTIONS KILL SAPIENT RACES ENCROACHING ON THEIR LANDS IN THEIR NEWBIE ZONE.

    Those lines are no different from any other major horde or alliance faction; just with more fearsome semantics. It's a scary aesthetic twist.

    Those are farmers pledged to the Scarlet crusade; an extremist faction that was disavowed by Lordaeron's government even before it fell: How is killing them different from newbie Human players killing Defias farmers in their starting zones? You try to use aesthetics to expose a hypocrisy but your conclusion is backwards.

    Since you're always so sarcastic and humorous, I'm sure that's not what the Celestials really said.

    But I do seem to recall quite clearly the Celestials listing out all of Garrosh's war crimes (hence the name of the novel ), amongst which was genocide, and I don't remember Baine (Garrosh's lawyer) ever justifying Garrosh by saying that he technically didn't do those things himself...

    The Forsaken characters of TFT are Sylvanas and Varimathras
    Neither of them cared about the Forsaken and only used them as pawns, then threw them under the bus when they were no longer useful.

    They don't get to decide what the Forsaken stand for, because they never cared about the Forsaken in the first place.

    Otherwise, the Horde stands for genocide and destruction because that's what the Legion dictated back in WC1.

    Which, by the way, I don't disagree with.

    ??? Not every undead's soul is split. He only did that with very specific people.

    Were they ever really that different? Sylvanas gained free will: her first action was to try to kill Arthas, and when that failed, she then went around conquering Lordaeron (just like the Scourge). She employed mind control regularly throughout her campaign (just like the Lich King was mind controlling his minions before), and she even turned Varimathras against his brethren (just like the Scourge and Arthas). The average Forsaken isn't even shown to be intelligent in TFT, aside from banshees. What we have as Forsaken characters in Classic don't even have a representative among the group in TFT, with the turned citizens of Stratholme in the original Scourge campaign being the closest look alike. The entire Forsaken narrative as presented in WC3 is a group of undead doing their best to ensure they can remain free of external influence, which is nearly identical to Ner'zhul's goals throughout: escape the frozen throne and his dreadlord captors. While they remain different, everything from story arc to motivation to methods to geopolitical impact remains nearly identical.

    That doesn't change the fact that they're the only representative voice of the Forsaken. I feel you'd also be hard pressed to support your stance on Sylvanas purely from the game materials, given she has very little interaction with her forces beyond talking with banshees, and those she refers to with the term of endearment "sister." While this has been recontextualized since TFT, within the scope of that game, the only real forsaken characters to talk are Sylvanas and the banshees, and their goals and methods aligned throughout. There's no reason to believe the Forsaken stood for anything different at the time. While they are welcome to change those views (and did), at the time of TFT, the Forsaken's only stated goal was to conquer Lordaeron and ensure their freedom by defeating anyone in the area who would make them slaves again.

    fuck blizzard and praise to putress, he was right all along
    Hell yes, one of the best lines in the game. "Do you think we had forgotten, Do you think we had forgiven?" I have been been of the mind that the Forsaken should have went down this path blighting and killing everything. They should have been a 3rd Faction that was at War with both the other factions.

    For f sake, you can read some forsaken lore, no?
    Forsaken looks for their place to exist, not BLIGHT EVERYTHING AND KILL ALL LIVING. They need purpose, and Blizz are lacking to define that. Even players have different ideas of it. Some want sick-blooded maniacs, some - noble undead people. Some wants even necromansers (lolwhat, their most horrible memory is been razed, and now we should raze more, heh. Brilliant logic) To me - we can start to define by who they are forsaken, and now we are talking.

    It's rich that you like the Forsaken, but then quote one of their greatest betrayers, who sold the Forsaken over to the Legion, ruined their reputation at a geopolitical level, betrayed their Banshee Queen, and almost caused Sargeras himself to be summoned into the Undercity.

    Why are you quoting Putress when he betrayed and completely threw the Forsaken under the bus?

    which is weird as they never did any shit to the Argent Dawn who took a piece of Lordaeron land (Light's hope chapel) then the next day they already own the entire Eastweald

    because literally all the burning legion is an asspull to make the questline for both factions. literally not a single word in the cinematic hint about BL, is 100% pure forsaken hatred

    Yep, as so many times since and before Blizzard wrote themselves into a corner where the only logical end was to wipe the Forsaken out, but they couldn't do that, so that whole "Sylvanas was betrayed!" nonesense happened. As I said, the whole race had no place in player hands.

    Whether it was mentioned in the cutscene or not is irrelevant, the two events (Wrathgate and Battle of Undercity) take place literally in the same patch and so, when Blizzard wrote the dialogue of Putress, they also knew he was going to betray the Forsaken and turn Undercity over to the Legion.

    So it's just funny to me how the "quintessential" Forsaken quote was spoken by someone who actually betrayed the Forsaken and willingly gave their capital to the Legion in a coup d'état.

    You cannot say that it was an "asspull", because it was planned from the start. Putress was always supposed to be a traitor.

    It should also be noted that Sylvanas basically told Putress to unleash the blight on Arthas if the opportunity presented itself. She would not have been explicitly against the Wrathgate. And so, many of Putress' followers at the Wrathgate could have remained loyal to Sylvanas. Which means, that Putress' pretty speech about "Forsaken vengeance" was probably just a ruse to trick the other apothecaries into thinking he was still loyal to Sylvanas. He never cared about any "Forsaken vengeance".
