I agree. "Death to the Scourge and to the living" pretty much sums it up for me. I've never seen the Horde faction as the "bad guys" but the Forsaken and Sylvanas are as close to evil as we get to play in the game.I think a lot of players tend to brush over that b/c they think Sylvanas is hot. /rolls eyesIn my opinion, Sylvanas is almost a mirror of Arthas. She is so single-minded in her hatred and rage and lust for domination over her enemies that she casts aside the well-being of her people. She basically became the very thing she hated. She is a leader who put her own thirst for revenge first to the exclusion of everything else, which in my mind, makes her a terrible leader and a terrible representative for her people.Until BLizz officially comes out and says "Putress acted alone in developing and releasing the plague at the Wrathgate" I'll continue to point to the evidence that says Sylvanas was the one in charge and simply got duped in regards to the timing. Putress jumped the gun and release it too early. But there's no doubt in my mind that Sylvanas knew what was going on and took an active hand in creating the plague to wipe out the Scourge and all living creatures -- as evidenced by quests as well as the novel "Arthas" which is considered canon. The fact that as far as we know, Thrall did little else but replace some of her guards in Undercity made me lose a lot of respect for him as a character. But I do believe this is part of the way Blizz is setting up his fall as someone else will use that weakness to oust him as Warchief.
