Time to bring back the old genre of MSTing I think..."Some have questioned Thrall's decision to set Garrosh Hellscream into the fiery crucible of Horde leadership, but none can doubt that this Mag'har orc from Outland has charted a course for his people that will change the very face of Azeroth."Amaxe: So did the Mongol invasions, but we don't think of that as being particularly heroic or good for Europe..."As the son of the orc credited with his people's redemption, Garrosh Hellscream has always carried a bitter mantle of duty to his kind."Amaxe: I don't know... he looks like he'll be good in following his dad's genocidal side anyway."Before learning of his father's ultimate actions against the Burning Legion, Garrosh had borne the shame of Grom Hellscream's corruption and feared that such weakness might be found within himself."Amaxe: I think this corruption could explain many things about Garrosh... "When Thrall arrived in Nagrand and showed Garrosh the truth of his father's martyrdom, the Mag'har was transformed." Amaxe: A shame he omitted to mention the atrocities he inflicted on the Night Elves"Filled with a renewed sense of strength and confidence, he returned with the warchief to Azeroth to be his advisor." Amaxe: I wouldn't take his advice on the weather outside without looking myself."Soon named overlord of the Warsong offensive, Garrosh displayed a courage, tenacity, and hot-bloodedness that both impressed and worried other members of the Horde."Amaxe: Apparently it didn't worry Thrall enough."These concerns were only heightened after his appointment as warchief, as Garrosh has paid little heed to opinions originating outside of his race."Amaxe: Evidence that "Thrall" and "a good leader" don't belong in the same sentence without an "is not" in between."Hellscream's ascension has been applauded by most orcs,"Amaxe: Except for those supporting "Abasik Campfire" "who feel that his brash warrior instincts and unwillingness to negotiate for needed resources are more in tune with the true orc way." Amaxe: If I said what this reminded me of historically, someone would no doubt mention Godwin's Law."While Garrosh appreciates public recognition, even relishes the acceptance amongst these green-skinned orcs, he has little time or patience for ostentatious displays of leadership. His attention is now focused on strengthening the walls of Orgrimmar and providing supplies vital to his people: food, lumber, and"Amaxe: ...Turning his back while Sylvanas uses Chemical Warfare atrocities... "the other essentials for living, which are growing scarcer in the recent drought. If these can only be gained through the blood of selfish Alliance dogs, so be it."Amaxe (As garrosh): How dare those Alliance people live where we want our Lebensraum... er, I mean resources..."Already distrustful of the other branches of the Horde, Garrosh has learned that the various leaders of these factions are more powerful than he had originally estimated. The duel with (and eventual slaying of) High Chieftain Cairne Bloodhoof was costly, as it resulted in a civil war amongst the tauren." Amaxe: Well it was more of a failed coup d'etat than a Civil War. "The exodus of the Darkspear trolls from Orgrimmar, led by a dissatisfied Vol'jin, has spread the Horde's once-concentrated military mighty thin." Amaxe: TL:DR, Thrall was an idiot, unilaterally acting without consulting his friends and allies before naming Stalin junior as leader..."And Sylvanas Windrunner, the Dark Lady of the Forsaken, has not been reserved in sharing her low opinion of the new warchief."Amaxe: "And of course, we know that being held in esteem by a psychotic genocidal walking corpse is so important..."Garrosh is not one for diplomacy"Amaxe: Next they'll tell us Water is wet."-with the Alliance or even among the members of the Horde-and he is only now realizing the price for this mindset."Amaxe: Taking over several zones which once were shared with the Alliance? "Whether he sets that at a higher value than his vision for an invigorated, purified Horde is yet to be seen. In the end, some feel that Garrosh Hellscream's ideals will bring about the salvation of the Horde, while others feel he will usher in its downfall."Amaxe: The former are idiots of course.
