@Blayze - I am giving you the benefit of the doubt here and assuming you don't know how the way you phrased things looks. :P I figure you didn't intend any harm by it, but - that was not the best way to express what you meant, there.Anyway. As Kylenne said, we have all of two female racial leaders here; one is barely involved, which is beyond absurd considering how active she was in WCIII and how crucial to the whole thing unfolding as it did she was. The other's suffering one of the writers' attacks of hot-n'-cold face-or-heel-whiplash atrociousness. (Writers, why you gotta do this? See also: Kael'thas, Illidan. Hell, Arthas got this glorious slow descent into 'oh hell NO' that had me flailing as I watched the downward spiral into elbow-dropping Ner'zhul. If they absolutely MUST heel Sylvanas out, she deserves at least that type of character development! Where DID the shades of grey from the RTSes go?)It sounds as if you are saying two female leaders active and written well is enough, and that we should be content with just that.Survey says: *dzzzzzzzzzzzzt*.It's not only women who are pining for the fjo--*cough* the RTS games' writing. A lot of male players really like strong women. (Note that this does not mean we are the only ones who count. We're just the loudest more often than not. :D) Why in the name of Thrall's balls and Varian's junks should we be settling for the bare minimum of effort when it comes to characters we - and by 'we' I mean male and female and hell ANY players - love to see kick ass and take names.Quota, schmota. The quota is aaaaaaaaaall in your miiiiiiiiiiiiind. (Imagine I am doing that Wayne's World finger waggle.) This isn't somebody's grudging obligation, this is fans' desire. if you can't see that, then WOW.Now that I'm done talking his ear off and probably being a general all-round pedantic jerk: whether Mida or Sassy becomes the Trade Prince(ss), I will be a happy pedantic jerk. Gallywix is beyond incompetent as a leader, and is a douche to boot.
