Good article. Although I still hate the guy, primarily because I'm Alliance, I do get the points you're trying to make here.I will still revel in roflstomping his @$$ though when given the opportunity. To do otherwise would be disappointing to King Wrynn...and no one (other than card-carrying Communists, that is) wants to disappoint King Wrynn.8-)

I concur, this was a great article. I think Garrosh is a much more complex character than people give him credit for and is much less of a psycho than he pretends to be.In regards to Garrosh's age, he's a little older than Thrall.

I can't stand Varian and I play Alliance exclusively, so I guess the I should be asking, "where do I pick up my card?"

Yeah, not much to pick:- Josef Wrynn or- Garrosh Hietlehr ;)And even with dramatic tries of dear V. A. Jaina Proudmore to sing a song "Why can't we be friends" we still feel like O_o, o_O, can I pick Captain Planet and live in Ashenvale with him instead?

"Then there I was in Orgrimmar and suddenly there's Garrosh, giving Thrall lip. So much lip, in fact, that they actually got into a fight. That wasn't all, though. Garrosh won."/facepalmI usually like what you write Rossi, but this is fanboy territory.The wow comics are 100% more accurate/reliable source of lore than buggy in-game events. The only reason people believe Garrosh was "winning" in because for some reason Thrall's health bar was lower than Garrosh's.While in the wow comic, Thrall is holding Garrosh at bay using only one hand & is lecturing him when the herald arrives.If one is deadset on taking in-game stats to validate this stuff however, Garrosh can be 2-manned and has low health, while Thrall still require a good raid.This whole debate is annoying, since its based on nothing of significance.

/agree with ElmouthI don't know what things were like on other servers, but on Khaz'Goroth, it was quite weird. First couple of times I saw the Thrall Vs Garrosh event, Garrosh really had Thrall on the ropes, but the closer to the end of the event, the more Thrall was kicking Garrosh.The last time I saw it Garrosh was on about 1/2 hp and Thrall was on 3/4 and smashing Garrosh all over the arena with lightning blasts.I guess in an effort to make sure that neither combatant was near death when the Lich King interrupted the coding allowed for a very wide variance in outcomes.Personally, I'm hoping that sooner or later Vol'Jin wanders in on a Garrosh vs Someone argument, sighs, turns Garrosh into a frog, and hands him over to Varian as a 'peace offering' with a side order of Mojo.

You guys above are masters at twisting facts, just to make it fit into your little fanboy mind. In-game Thrall lost. It ended with Thrall on his knees. No arguing possible, suck it up.The comic however shows Thrall having the upper hand and blasting Garrosh backwards. Which one is official, we cannot say yet.

I used to play horde and one of the reasons ive stopped playing them is because as i have read more and more into the lore i hate THRALL.Yeah i know i did just say that and i know a lot of lore nerds (ment in the least offensive way) just died a little inside but i mean come on..... you cant have both horde and alliance being "good". I came to wow thinking oooh horde are evul orcs and trolls humans are the good guys..... seems the opposite sometimes now that i have read some of the lore.Im not the most clued up guy on lore and i dont try and hide that but is it just me that thinks that garrosh would be an awsome character to lead the horde? They need to go back to being a bit more bloodthirsty and well...hordish The whole WAR in WARcraft doesnt seem to be there just this semi stalemate thing thats going on and it just doesnt feel like the factions hate each other enough.Ohwell i will quit my ramblings here just my 2cents
