lol, wow has pretty much never had a good story. The voice acting is typically forced and cliche and the writing in general is just...bad. I stopped caring about wow's "story" over a decade ago. Letting go of that has allowed me to enjoy the game immensely. Don't play wow for the story, you'll just be disappointed.
I'm sorry but I just don't believe Danuser. I really think they are just making it up as they go along and just nodding and smiling at the fan theories they never even though of.I had the revelation the other day that the story in wow is more akin to a daytime soap than epic fantasy. The plot and characters are whatever they need to be for that dramatic cliffhanger. But that's okay, daytime soaps can be fun if you don't take then too seriously.
Lets be honest: WoW Story went downhill after Wotlk and hit rock bottom once they started to make the Player Character into the biggest badass overpowerd dude in the entire warcraft universe... pretty lame.Cant wait for em to make Arthas suddenly the good guy (like they did with Illidan cuz he had so many fanboys).
So... Draka's shoulderpad on her right shoulder not beign there on the frist scene, and suddenly appearing in the second is not an accident ? hmm....
Imagine being Chris Metzen and being all excited to see what the characters you created are up to now. Imagine doing the Alexandros storyline and getting it dictated to you that ACTUALLY, all that stuff you wrote about the Light was stupid bull#$%^ and Alexandros was just delusional all this time and all your characterization is thrown out the window. Because reasons. LMAOGod, I hope they don't touch Tirion.....
I agree that tuning the player into some kind of a chosen one, while obviously we as PC are nowhere close to lore characters is just dull.Does it matter that I am the champion of Azeroth and the Commander of my faction forces if I cannot say a word about our war strategy?Spoiler, no it does not.
Shadowlands is like purgatory not a final resting place.But if you die in purgatory then its final death
What's this new deal with people seeing a criticism that explains a bit of lore and takes issue with it, and thinking that if they reword the lore ever so slightly differently that somehow refutes the criticism lmao. Saying it's bad to kill a soul permanently does literally nothing to refute the fact that it's $%^&ing ridiculous that souls can be killed at all. Retcons from Legion are not "long established truth". Putting characters that should exist in certain afterlives into crappy second-best zones de facto disproves their existence. Why do you think we can say X afterlife exists if NONE of the characters that should have ended up there did so?Imagine thinking new writers NECESSITATES &*!@ing with the lore. lmao. You do realize it's possible to simply continue a story rather than remix it? Just because you LIKE the remixing doesn't mean it's necessary or even justified.Removed
story bad edit: thanks for the reddit gold kind stranger
The soul splitting was just as subtle as box of TNT caught on fire.
