This has always been of interest to me. Early on, I was willing to believe that Blizzard simply wrote themselves into holes, because the universe they created became so massive. However, after their admitted "oops" involving the Draenei, one would think that they would be extra careful about creating characters/factions and then plopping them down in obvious plot holes.I really can't explain why they've done what they've done with the Argent Crusade. Tirion is pacing when he should be out stomping mud holes and walking them dry. It'd be nice to get their take on this and hopefully it wouldn't be something akin to "we don't have time" or "use your imagination to overlook the glaring problems".Having said that, some of their ???? could be turned into intriguing and valuable material for the game. A few weeks ago Metzen churned up the rumor mill about older characters making comebacks. The obvious guesses centered on the return of Illidan. Personally I'd love it if he came back somehow (well written, of course). Given Malfurion's blindness concerning Night Elf security and his apparent dismissal of anything Tyrande says (in-game), I think it would be a great story/plot point for her to kick his feathered butt to the curb. Can Night Elves divorce? These two need to. The Alliance needs leaders who can carry their weight. Right now, Malfurion is more concerned with hugging trees than supporting the Alliance. We need our Warrior Priestess back.What better way to get a sober/less-demon-y Illidan back into the fold than to have him try to win a newly divorced Tyrande back into his heart? She wouldn't at first. But having Illidan start FIGHTING for the Night Elves instead of preaching (or even worse, ignoring) them would gain her trust and respect quicker than anything else. It'd be a great soap opera for sure.

while I'm a rep monger in game with pretty much everyone but the pvp factions exalted, I really came to hate both tirion and malfailion for many of these same reasons. Tirion most of all cause he takes credit for the ebon blade's work and then kill steals our credit with LK, and Malfailion for many of the reasons you all have listed here. Doesn't acknowledge problems with the horde, takes a once awesome character like Tyrande and basically tells her to get in the kitchen, and if it werent for him Illy would have been a good guy all along >.< please bring Illidan back and kill tirion and malfailion, it would bring joy to so many people
