Loved this article. When I first heard about MoP I definitely had problems mainly because the Pandaren were so...silly up to this point. There's just something about "we created this race as an April Fool's Joke" that will always make me see them as weird. Even if Blizz is trying to legitimize them. But, I guess from a non-lore, non-WC3 player, the pandaren seem fine. But another problem I had was how it didn't seem epic enough and it didn't say enough about a central antagonist. All 3 expansion titles hinted at either the central antagonist or a major turning point in the world. TBC hinted at the Legion, WotLK was about the Lich King, and Cataclysm, though not directly about Deathwing, hinted that the world was facing a major disaster. MoP just seemed too...focused on a new continent and a race, and didn't focus enough on what we'd be fighting or doing in the next expansion. But this article totally changed my views on that. Even if what you've proposed is all wrong, it gives me hope that there actually IS some reason to fight. The idea of "we must explore new Azerothian lands also affected by the Cataclysm" makes the expansion so much cooler and more focused. Great, great article.
