If we're lucky they will start making the story take place in the game.Amazing stories can be told in MMO's, just look at Final Fantasy XI, it has the best story out of any MMO and a better story than a lot of single player MMO's.

That'd be pretty sweet for people such as myself but even though I don't read the comics or anything like that (I've only ever read one Warcraft-related novel, admittedly) I do think they're a big part of the Warcraft franchise itself.Some people like the lore of the franchise without the frills of the game, the accessibility that comes with books and comics is nice, so it'll be a bit disappointing if this service becomes lost.

You mean single-player RPGs?A single-player multi-player massively online game is a bit of an oxymoron ;)

@Pyromelter. Yep, that was a typo, I was talking to my friend while typing and got distracted.

I heartily agree, the lore should really be happening in the game. Things that wouldn't fit the flow of questing, like Thalassian's backstory, fine. The Emerald Dream and Fandral Staghelm and Ysera doing hugely important things? Not cool at all.Also, an obligatory give more roles to female leads plea. Tyrande, Jaina, Her Tallest, Zen'tabra: for Light's sake, do something awesome!

@Pyro: A single-player MMORPG? It's called Final Fantasy XII. ;)

@Hollow Leviathan -YES PLEASE WITH THE FEMALE CHARACTERS. Sweet dancing mother tiamat, TYRANDE IS A RACIAL LEADER, WHY DO THEY DO NOTHING WITH HER oh dear my capslock is stuck again and I sound like Varian.*whack* *whack* *whack* There it goes.Also, WTB far less of this incompetency when dealing with Sylvanas. Please. For the love of Mmmrrrggglll and Sergeant Gorth. PLEASE. Given the fact that we are told in no uncertain terms via a long questline that denying free will is punishable by Very Bad And Stabby Things for the Forsaken, WHAT IN THE HELL WITH A LATER QUESTLINE oh damn it I've gone all shouty again. I've seen greater writing and characterization consistency within a STAR TREK SEASON. I mean, character inconsistency has been here, there and everywhere (see also: King Crankypants of Stormwind, Jaina, that damn Hellscream kid etc.) throughout Wrath and the "GET A BETA!" syndrome hasn't abated in Cata (see also: Sylvanas, Thrall in re: Gallywix, that damn Hellscream kid etc.). BC had colossal characters derail issues with Illidan and Kael but at least the derails were written with consistency. I cannot say the same for much of anything I have seen from Wrath onward. It's back and forth like a caffeinated fiddler's elbow! I keep getting the feeling no one has any idea who these characters ARE and needs to go replay the RTSes post-haste.Oh, who am I kidding; they haven't managed to write Sylvanas with much competency since WCIII. Hope springs eternal, I suppose. :B
