I have had a lot of trouble really caring about the WoW story after TBC, which effectivley killed it for me. The story line for TBC compared to Vannilla WoW has gone from Horde vs Alliance, evil bosses, and a general epic feel to Spacegoats and "OHNOES THIS GUY IS EVIL CUZ I SAY SO GO KILL HIM FOR PURPLZ". This isn't nostalgia talking, either. Look at the story lines for BWL or Ony compared to, say, Black Temple.The lore of WoW is getting lamer all the time.

wow, great article. Fantastic point as well! I must admit i have only really been through alliance side quests, but Id expect more homogenized quests as bliz has a greater desire for all customers to experience all content. It does sort of suck though. And I agree if we are really supposed to be teaming up to fight a common foe, we should be able to group together. What if you could only team up with horde in one common area, but there would be an option for either side to sabotage the effort somehow. Something to make the alliance feel tenuous and as shaky as its supposed to be might be cool!

I agree. It's time for a complete lore reboot in the form of WoW 2. Let's just hope that's what the secret 4th project is.

Ha, first time I've ever heard of them referred to as Spacegoats. And yeah, I have to agree with Mr. MicPimp, The Burning Crusade took a lot of WoW lore and trashed it with a lot of sci-fi nonsense. From the force-fields of Netherstorm to the Blueberry Spacegoats and their spaceship, everything in TBC was a washout lorewise with the exception of the excellently handled Blood Elf Paladins (who were, are, and will always be evil, no matter who Llandri teams up with).I'm overjoyed to see the weapons and dungeons of WotLK take on a more fantasy setting. No more pink rock-candy warhammers, hooray!

I'm gonna have to second that. Draenei were the absolute worst thing to happen to a fantasy franchise....ever. The only way I can continue to play the game is if I force myself to forget how terrible their back story is.
