I think the anger comes not from the article, so much as the fact that the level-headed, but sometimes emotional woman being used to balance out a proud but angry man is sort of a cliche. Absolutely, the article stipulated that they don't have to be romantically involved, but there's still an undeniable Jane Eyre/Rochester dynamic at play.I'm surprised that Blizzard is so conservative with most of its prominent female characters. One of the reasons that Sylvanas is so popular, in spite of being pretty villainous, is because she's one badass woman: love her or hate, you have to respond to her, and she takes a backseat to no one.Why not add a few more tough women? Zeibart correctly identifies Joanna Blueheart as having wasted potential. Tyrande should go back to being the badass hunter she used to be. Moira has potential, and the Alliance could use a darker leader. Hordeside, you have Lady Liadrin (awesome!) sitting there unused while Bore-Themar files paperwork, and Gallywix is awol while any number of cool goblin women are available.
