    Sounds like BFA all over again.
    Like saying WoD was BC all over again. Or DF was cataclysm all over again. Or BfA was MoP all over again.

    Besides, BfA was a faction war expansion, not a pirate expansion. We aren’t having another faction war expansion anytime soon according to blizzard.

    Thrall doesn't work for a Pirate invasion.
    Thrall doesn’t work for a “entering the realms of death/afterlife” expansion yet he was there.


    Sounds more like we got a huge mess, just like BFA. What? Is Xal'atath pulling Azshara's strings now instead of N'Zoth?
    That’s a question for blizzard. They’re the ones bringing them both back soon.

    Except BFA was literally Pirates, Azshara, and void.

    He was present, he wasn't the main component though. Again, BlizzCon promo art tends to depict a main actor of an expansion. For example, pre-Shadowlands BlizzCon promo showed Sylvanas.

    Weird, I don’t see Pirates, Azshara, or Void on the main art for BfA.

    Bfa could have marketed way better with anyone of them. Making it all about the faction war was a stupid decision to appeal to the classic crowd. And it didn't even work.

    Yeah, because it was a thematic mess. However, Kul’Tiras was still a big part of it, and it was loaded with pirate junk.

    I dunno who said it but a expansion where both Alliance and Horde are doing something(And not having innter conflict/ fighting each other) sounds like a good idea to me.

    And like any map, it only includes what is known at the time. The most recent chart predates the 7th force being introduced, and we still don't actually know what the force even is, so mapping it would be... "difficult".

    No, it still wasn't. Pirates were a side theme at most. It wasn't even majority nautical despite being most well-known as a seafarer country.

    "Doctor" = Dr. Schrodinger. Schrodinger's Cat was supposed to be in a state of superposition (i.e. two states that would usually be exclusive at once). The implication was that temporal collapse would lead to multiple timelines happening simultaneously, even the parts that are mutually-exclusive. It didn't have any substantial effect on Azshara ("missing" a fish), but brought over Yrel ("caught" a goat).

    Please explain how a friendly pirate city would be any different aesthetically from the non-drustvar portions of Kul’Tiras.

    Bingo. Further it proved that a pirate/nautical theme is not strong enough to support an expansion.

    Two story chapters in one zone, a dungeon and a minor quest hub in another.

    Betty

    Thrall
    Jennifer O'Neal
    Anduin
    Sunflower

    And i'm sure N'zoth is gonna show up again at some point, but i'd say it would happen because of an actual lore reason and not because of a random number positioned somewhere on your screen.

    If you fail to see the link between these names when I say that N'zoth is still alive and fight ends at 2.5%, then all of this was complete waste of time.

    Have a nice evening.

    Just feels like Teriz is on the windup at this point.
