I never got the people who were up in arms about the whole Draenei retcon. All it did was change a small passage in the Warcraft 3 manual that had little to no bearing on anything that happened in the previous three games. Yes, I understand it was important to Sargeras' betrayal, but they still had the Nathreziem as a corrupting influence, and I'm sure they'll create any number of new demonic races to help explain his corruption. The point is though that it ultimately wasn't important. Heck, Metzen admitted he FORGOT writing that passage, which is why he made the mistake in the first place. That's how miniscule it was in the greater scheme of WoW lore.Personally I think the new version of the Draenei/Eredar story is better. But then again, I'm one of the few people who liked a lot of the lore in TBC, so I might just be an oddity on that one.
