Mar 21st 2012 10:47AM It's not like the orcs that were fighting in the first and second war are long dead and the orcs living now are their great-great-great-grandsons. It's only been around 20 years since the end of the second war and many of the orcs who fought back then are still fighting right now. Sure, there's also a younger generation, but even that generation were mostly kids back then and they all saw their parents killing and murdering. Few adult orcs were born after the second war.
Feb 17th 2012 2:12AM The events in Starcraft happens in the future. The protoss are either A) the evolution of the Draenei, B) a group that split off the Draenei in one of their many safe harbors before settling in Draenor, and C) a faction of Eredar that stayed and resisted the Burning Legion then escaped Argus. C is more likely. Over thousands of years, they developed a new different culture. The Terran are the human soldiers who fought against the Burning Legion in Argus (in some future expansion. You know it's coming) and eventually stayed in one of the Burning Legion planets, calling it "Earth".
Nov 29th 2011 3:40AM It kinda felt like a fan-made trailer.
Nov 26th 2011 11:24PM That's BS. I see the huge Horde bias in Cataclysm, but when you're looking at Horde bias in other expansions you're just searching for the tiniest excuse to say there is one. There isn't any major obvious Horde bias in TBC or Wrath. There wasn't any Alliance bias, either.
In TBC we see a lot of Draenei, in almost every zone. Likewise we also see a lot of blood elves and orcs. You don't see any victories or losses. Both factions keep on winning. Blood Elves only get more story in Quel'danas.
In Wrath both factions had their wins and losses almost equally. Both had great quest lines. The Battle for the Undercity, though the Alliance didn't win it, was pretty epic and I'm sure most Alliance players don't really mind not taking UC. Giving Undercity to the Alliance isn't exactly a small act.
Nov 26th 2011 10:50PM I honestly, don't mind seeing my city burned, as long as I don't see my king just sitting back and watching.
... which is what's happening.

it's not the same. Losing zones isn't the same as not starting with them in the first place. And let's forget about the zone count, cause that's not everything. Here are a bunch of other stuff:
-Worgen don't see anything related to them past level 15. You actually have to play horde to see the rest of the story. It's like what's happening with the Draenei now, except the Draenei had their own expansion. Worgen aren't even getting it in their own expansion.
-Orgrimmar got a huge overhaul. Stormwind didn't.
-Twilight Highlands experience.
-Barely any faction leader stories (except for Malfurion). What the hell happened to the council of three hammers? We only get to see a bit about them in Dun Morogh 1-10. Varian, who's supposed to be the Supreme Leader of the Alliance, isn't doing much. On the Horde there's Garrosh, Vol'jin, and Sylvanas all kicking ass.
And it's not just about the zone count. It's about the constant losses. It doesn't feel good to see yourself fail.
Nov 25th 2011 5:37PM And hey, at least Draenei had story development in TBC. Worgen don't in their own expansion.
And lets not forget faction leaders. Anyone remember the Council of Three Hammers? Maybe Tyrande? No? What about Greymane? Velen? Mecha... do you even know his name?
Well, Varian gets a bit. Then again, as the Supreme Leader of the Alliance army, you'd expect him to get a lot more.
I actually think Varian got more love in Wrath.
Nov 23rd 2011 10:44PM It's an English word in the end. I've seen people with names that have a lot worse meanings, even though the names themselves sound nice and normal.
And I actually find Varian kinda nice.
Nov 23rd 2011 10:41PM I don't know why people aren't liking Varian. It's actually kind of nice. Doesn't sound that wierd and from a fantasy series.
