Apr 2nd 2012 12:51AM You know, I never understood why places like Stonard was allowed to be kept in Horde hands. If I was Joanna Blueheart, I would just have my soldiers burn Stonard to the ground. As long as it stands, the Horde will have a major base of power close to Stormwind's outlying regions. That shouldn't be our mindset. Our mindset is to neutralize the threats to our homelands. Do we have to butcher every Horde member, soldier and civilian alike? Not necessarily. But neither should we have to sacrifice our own chances of survival just so that we don't look like the bad guys. For Stonard, we can just burn the place down and build our own stronghold in its place. We can just drive the Horde out, we don't have to hunt down every one of them that escapes, but all those who stay and fight must be killed on the spot. I never got why we lost our portal to Andorhal, while the Horde gets to keep theirs in Stonard.

Dec 21st 2011 5:44PM This article highlights exactly why people like Malfurion have no place in the Alliance leadership. He's done nothing but stand by as the Horde marches on the ancestral lands of his people. At the very least he should be showing some sort of animosity towards the Horde; whether ordering some druids to help other Alliance members or making it clear that he isn't going to tolerate the Horde's presence in night elf territory after all is said and done. I fully agree that Tyrande should stop taking orders from Furion. Listen to him, sure, but she needs to have her own opinion, and the Tyrande we all saw in WC3 even disobeyed Furion's orders. She loved Furion, but she also made a point that she has just as much sway as he does. There is just so much potential for each of the Alliance races that it pisses me off that it just sits there and wastes away.
Dec 8th 2011 10:02PM I agree with some of the comments made here that Varian could use some more screentime and character development in game. I am one of the few who truly believes that Varian has what it takes to help lead the Alliance in these trying times. It's a shame that a few posters here say that Blizzard should just kill off Varian now and get Anduin on the throne. I personally don't see Anduin leading Stormwind in a time of war. His hesitance to resort to violence can be a huge liability. He is more suited as a peacetime ruler. Varian, if he can be fleshed out just right, can be the inspiring leader that the Alliance can follow. He has so much potential and it would be wasted if he gets killed off now.

This is exactly why the Alliance should start shedding its white knight imagery. Hell, we've got night elves and savage worgen on our side. The Alliance should be embracing savagery, not shun it away. Like someone else said, let the Alliance be made up of white knights AND black knights. Let us show that we are human, or at least that we have a personality. Let them show ruthlessness, not like what happened at Taurajo. The Alliance should incorporate a Roman like mindset when facing these barbarous Horde. Make them feel like they are in an actual war!

No dude, I meant the part about Bolvar being able to take several dragonkin while Varian was nearly killed by that one dragonkin. I'm not saying that Bolvar's accomplishment wasn't an incredible feat, it was. But Varian wasn't facing just any drakonid, that drakonid was designed to be a much tougher opponent than the dragonkin Bolvar faced. Add to the fact that Varian was trying to protect his son, and that the entire ambush was Benedictus's idea, Varian had a much tougher job. He also had to fight several assassins that were also warded by magic.
Dec 8th 2011 2:34PM That "faceless" dragonkin was a drakonid that was armored from head to tail, and to further improve his defenses, his armor was warded. He was also described as being huge, with two axes as his weapons. Bolvar managed to take out several dragonkin because guess what? They weren't as nearly formidable an opponent as that drakonid was.
Dec 8th 2011 2:00PM I can understand why people would think like you do, but as we've seen in warcraft, experience isn't everything. It definitely has its benefits, but it isn't the deciding factor. There are plenty of examples: Anduin Lothar vs Orgrim Doomhammer, Arthas vs Uther and Illidan. In all these examples those with "less" experience triumphed over more experienced veterans.

That is not the case. All Alex pointed out was that Varian could use a friend that's level headed to help him cool off. You, know a friend that, when you're angry and you're about to do something you'll regret, stops you and holds you back and tells you to calm down? It just so happens that Jaina is the closest thing to that as of right now. She also happens to be a woman. Does it have to be her? No, of course not. Could it be someone else? Yeah. Could it be a guy? Sure! You're taking this way out of proportion.
Nov 25th 2011 11:39PM There are many ways that a losing side can be "badass." If you watched 300, you see Leonidas and his spartan soldiers facing death, and ultimately, they are defeated. However, why are they badass if they were beaten? They stood their ground. Death was staring them in the face, and yet they went ahead anyway. The battle of Thermopylae was inspirational. That is how a losing side can look AND feel heroic. And yet, the Alliance have yet to show, or are allowed to show this kind of level of heroism. If Blizzard implements this sort of thing for the Alliance during Theramore's burning, it can go a long way of reassuring Alliance players that our time is coming. Until then, all they are spewing out is hot air.
