In the post you mention that Yogg-Saron claims to have had a part to play in the formation of the Demon Soul and the (accidental) Sundering of Azeroth. But from the final chapters in the War of the Ancients trilogy, I got the direct feeling that the summoning of Sargeras, its stop, and the Sundering of Azeroth greatly pleased the Old Gods. It seemed that they desired for Sargeras to come and destroy the life on Azeroth and destroy the planet itself. If the Titans had imprisoned the Old Gods inside Azeroth, something would need to "destroy" the walls of their prison before they could truly escape. Before the sundering they were fully imprisoned (from my understanding). Now after the Sundering (which I think was an ultimate Goal of the Demon Soul and corruption of Neltharion the Earthwarder - whose realm to safeguard was the Old Gods very prison), the Old Gods are able to "squeeze" little bits of themselves between the cracks. An eye there, a mouth here, and a few tentacles wherever there's a little bit of room. Through these they are able to manipulate beyond just their whisperings. They are able to truly "speak" and "interact" with their followers and pawns. I agree with Rossi that Yogg-Saron wanted the death of Loken to initiate the Destruction of Azeroth, but perhaps not for the reason given above. For taking down a Titanic Watcher is one thing, taking down Algalon the Observer is another, and Yogg-Saron must have known that Algalon would be much stronger than the Watchers or the Dragon Aspects. Would he have gambled all his work and effort on the hope that 25 mere mortals could defeat the Observer, or that the Observer would rebel against his programming and NOT send forth the beacon because of "hope"? I do not think an Old God would have risked so much on so little. Instead, I think the Old God of Death was hoping Algalon would issue his beacon, that the Titans would return and that without Sargeras (whom they know is now fallen and part of Burning Legion, which he may not have been when the Old Gods were first defeated) the Old Gods may be able to destroy their captors. With the defeat of Algalon, this plan was foiled and the Old Gods would have to wait until something else would happen on Azeroth so that they could work again to free themselves. Cue the Cataclysm and all the work C'thun and the new Old God are planning for us with the further shattering of Azeroth, and the loosening of their cages even more...
