Nov 6th 2009 2:02PM .... I think I might be that Druid. That's pretty much 90% of the time I spend playing WoW.
"Why back in MY day we had nine classes, three of which were good, and SIXTY levels! We didn't have any of your stinkin' accelerated leveling; leveling back then was a friggin' GRIND! And we didn't have any o' your godamn Death Knoobs either! If we wanted a DPSer that wore plate, we got a Warrior, and if Warriors specced for DPS they were idiots! *Sigh* You damn kids don't know how good you have it...."

Oct 30th 2009 2:32PM I would call Garrosh a tool, but tools serve a purpose in society. Helping build things, namely. He's a whiny, angsty teen with absolutely no reason to hate the Alliance, as he has only been on this planet for a year or so. He's trying desperately to BE his father and work off of his father's reputation at the same time, not realizing the deeply tortured, complex person that Grommash Hellscream really was; nor understanding the true significance of what he did. He lays waste to strategy, zergs everything, has no respect for his elders, and there are far more qualified people for the position. He's not even an anti-Thrall, he's an anti-Orc. He goes against everything the New Horde believes in. His only admirable quality is his aggression towards his enemies, and even then his aggression, as I mentioned before, is irrational and causes him to be reckless.
Saurfang would be a supremely better choice, or Cairne. Both are very respectable individuals loyal to the Horde and have an understanding of New Horde values and civilization. Garrosh doesn't even have an understanding of Azeroth, let alone the people he's going to be leading. I may be a zealous Alliance nationalist, but even I could respect Thrall- you don't fuck with the Son of Durotan unless you know what the hell you're doing. Garrosh doesn't know what the hell he's doing, or anyone else for that matter.
This guy will basically be a throwback for to the Dark Horde. I can't believe I'm saying this, but... I'm 'really' sorry for all of you dedicated Horde players. Not even YOU deserve this.
Oct 24th 2009 11:25AM It's interesting if it doesn't become a trend. The multi-racialism thing has kinda been done to death. With Me'dan, it's unique because he's such a mongrel, but I'll get pissed if mongrels start popping up everywhere as major characters.
Oct 24th 2009 12:55AM I'd reckon that doesn't so much have to do with the race aspect of it so much as it does the "Raging Mary Sue" aspect.
Oct 23rd 2009 6:07PM So... To recap... This Me'dan is a quarter Orc, a quarter Draenei, and half human? -sigh- Mongrel, no kidding. He sounds like the swords & sorcery manifestation of my neighbor's dog.
Sep 28th 2009 1:45PM The hero classes are based on heroes in WarCraft III, so no monks or clerics (which are priests, effectively). Blizzard has kind of trapped themselves with that decision, many of the hero classes were transformed into the classes we already play (Keeper of the Grove = Druid, Palain hero = Paladin, Archmage = Buffed up Mage, Far Seer = Shaman, Blademaster = Warrior, Priestess of the Moon = Hunter). Furthermore, the ones that are available after that are hindered in their being limited to certain races. Even if they made, say, Chieftans, a class- how limited would that be? Let's forget that they're basically very powerful Tauren warriors to begin with, but their very name posesses an honorific. Kind of weird to have a level 16 Chieftan, huh?
Sep 23rd 2009 3:30PM I second this notion what with the not preaching and the pwning and such.
Sep 23rd 2009 2:25PM The conservative/libertarian satire was nice until the religious bit with the Gnome, and the end credits didn't help. Brandon is a smart, talented guy- it's just a damn shame he licks the boots of Christ. I'll probably try to ignore this one and stick to The Great Kodo.
Sep 21st 2009 4:44PM These are very valid points, and it makes me sympathize with the kid a little- but at the same time he's just that, a kid. I don't 'like' Thrall, but I sure as hell respect him, and I certainly understand that he's an excellent leader. Thrall understands that the Old Horde died because of its disorganization and cultural isolation. No one can feel sympathetic for the Old Horde because of its wild, demonic nature and fiendish warrior-culture. Now, the Horde actually has a chance because Thrall is taking on Alliance-like organization skills desperately needed for the Horde's survival.
If Garrosh becomes the new Warchief, the Horde may gain some new ground, but in the long run it will be screwed. Its in the Horde's best interest to keep Thrall, no matter how idle he seems at the moment.
