There were draenei in Forest Song pre-BC...

And the original Draenei, first seen in WC3 which they turned in to the Broken for WoW, were in Swamp of Sorrows.

Actually that place used to be completely dead other than one NPC.

Ummm, nope, that place was updated WAY after BC. There wasn't a flight path there or anything.

No, it was updated with the 2.0 patch. TBC had a major version patch just as Wrath did. Never said it had a FP at the time.

Incorrect, the change to Forest Song came with 2.0, the patch preceding Burning Crusade. The Draenei also appeared around the rest of the game, in major cities and a few old places like Hinterlands.

I think Mike's summary of the interview was a little confusing regarding the issue of pre-seeding races. Chilton didn't say that they always do that or that they always have, but rather that they plan on doing that *from now on* specifically because they learned from their mistake with having Draenei just sort of appear out of nowhere. He goes on to say that despite the presence of Broken and the fact that Draenei had been referred to in previous WC games, the Draenei themselves had never been seen and so it was a bit weird to have them just pop into the game with a patch.Also, another notable thing in the interview is that when the interviewer asks if it would be necessary to set the next expansion somewhere other than Azeroth, Chilton not only says that wouldn't be necessary, but he goes on to say "There are parts of Eastern Kingdoms and Azeroth that haven't been filled out yet. Out there in the South Seas there are islands, there's out where the Maelstrom is. There's still quite a bit of land mass. We keep referring to the Emerald Dream, which is maybe not exactly in Azeroth, but is sort of tied to it in some way or another." Seems quite telling that those are the examples he gives, particularly when he knows how much speculation there's already been about the next expansion being related to the Emerald Dream and/or Maelstrom. Hmmm...
