Nice to see more cruddy writing from the guy who literally fawns over Sylvanas on twitter.I mean this is what happens when you let Mr Inconsistent Legion-Is-Infinite and Nathanos-Is-My-OC write the story.
Ugh. Where's my choice to kill Baine?
Well we know Blizz isn't going to kill Baine, so it'll be interesting to see where this all goes.
It's been pointed out before but this is just Patch 5.3: Escalation all over again. Baine is playing the role that Vol'jin did in that patch and it's good to see that Lor'themar is once again on the right side of the conflict. It makes me wonder if Baine won't be the Warchief after all is said and done at the end of the expansion.
So Sylvanas wants to rule through fear now? What a great leader indeed. And then what? Maybe you will tell us that other Horde leaders cover in terror before her?
Although we have seen misdirect after misdirect in BfA there are two comments that give me cause for concern. The first is when Baine says about Derek Proudmoore, " You raised him as a Forsaken. But you planned to deny him his free will. To violate his mind." This would indicate that after raising a forsaken the process of mind control/brainwashing takes a fair amount of time and effort. This would (more than likely) mean that Sira and Delaryn are acting of their own free will. While I will always find that implausible this may be the writers way of closing the door on further conversation on that issue.The other concern comes from when Jaina says "For years I pitied Sylvanas for what Arthas did to her. But nothing remains of the hero she was." Anduin said roughly the same thing at the end of BtS. I hope this is yet another misdirect and that the Ranger-General is given some consideration when The Banshee Queen is brought before her judges (both of this world and the one beyond.) Her intended life arc was broken by an outside source. What she is was not what she was ever meant to be.I'm not saying that any of this is good or bad, right or wrong, fair or unjust. It's just a couple of observations about issues of interest to me.
Jesus Christ what a trash expansion ''story''. How to completely demolish an iconic character to the franchise for no reason 101. It's incredible that with each and every patch update Blizzard secures that I never return to this game for what they're doing to her character and various others. And the fact that there's people gloating about it, makes me even more sick. Like they're happy that other people are unhappy. This expansion just is a complete disaster all around for the playerbase.
