Okay, I say this as a committed alliance player: really? Really, people? You're actually getting upset about Thrall being on the $500?First off, who's to say the $500 is actually the prize bill to be on; yeah, it's the highest denomination, but in my experience in Monopoly, it's not exactly the most used bill; I see hundreds passed around a lot more, so an argument could be made that Varian got the top spot.Secondly: who would you put there instead? If the $500 is really meant to be the emblematic character, what character would that be? What character do you think is a better choice for the face of the game? What other character says "World of Warcraft" loudly enough to be recognizable even for non-players? (As I'm sure that's a consideration with the designers of the board game.)I swear, there are people who would honestly complain that Warcraft 3 was pre-emptively Horde biased because it makes you start as Thrall.

"Really? Really, people? You're actually getting upset about Thrall being on the $500?"Oh yes, yes they are.With the fury of a thousand suns.

I don't know what comments you guys are reading, but I don't see people getting all that upset. It's more like eye rolling meta argument than actual rage.

If it's gone meta it's only because the argument has been settled: Yes, the devs are biased.
