Oct 11th 2011 9:58AM I attended Chris Metzen's GDC talk, and here are some interesting details to add. He indicated they would be announcing a new WOW expansion at Blizzcon that would change how people view Garrosh. Garrosh has a big story arc. Right now he is an asshole, but he is supposed to be. Metzen talked about how right now Blizzard is getting clobbered over players' dislike of Garrosh, but that later people will look back at Garrosh with nostalgia and say, "Man, remember how we used to hate that guy?"
There was plenty of other interesting stuff, like how they were surprised by the players' idea about a Thrall-Jaina relationship; or how the writer of the gnome faction leader story was really inspired by the passion of gnome players on forums and changed his approach to the story. Probably the most interesting was that Metzen started world design in Warcraft II from unit colors (he found pinkish/violet orcs unacceptable, but purple orcs lead to the Twilight cult, while yellow lead to the Alterac faction (they're cowards), blue was heroic Stormwind, etc.) Lore in Warcraft initially grew out of gameplay, although now they take it more seriously.
Overall, a very good talk.
