I have such mixed feelings about mekkatorque right now. One hand he's most likely not dead, but i can 100% see blizzard killing the only gnome off like that. On the other hand he's probably safer in there then out fighting. and on there third hand it's not like blizzard were going to give gnomes any lore anyways, so he's not going to miss much.
Mekkatorque's escape pod froze him in some kind of cryogenic sleep I'm willing to bet. It will be resolved (and he will be revived) when we crack the mystery of the junkyard in Tiragarde and the missing gnomes there, introducing Junker Gnomes or Mechagnomes as the next Alliance race. Also, Calia actually being mentioned in game now leads me to believe the final allied race will be some kind of redeemed undead, with her as their leader.RIP Rastakhan. Such a waste of a character.
megatwerk is frozen inside his escape pod. New gnome leader is most likely the mechagnome from Uldaur along with mechgnome allied race they probably save megatwerk in the scenario, also gnome vs goblin are going to happen, maybe next xpac? tinker class? hero class for gnome/goblin. the guy who did leak the info of BFA before it came out mentioned this he also mentioned heart of azeroth, kul'tiras, zandalar, nazjatar, possibly dragon isles, with so much he got right of this xpac, it is bound to happen unless blizz scrapped the idea. or is holding off for the next xpac.
So the Alliance attack Zandalar as a payback for Teldrassil? That makes no sense. The Zandalari aren't part of the horde just yet, they are just aiding them. They might as well attack the Trotollans and Magni because they are helping the horde as well.
We got Cairne die off-screen and Vol'jin die to a trash mob, so one Alliance leader dying as raid boss is something you should be able to cope with.
I dont think the death of rastakhan is as big as it is being made out to be. He was portrayed as being incompetant but I dont know how talanji will go over.Also what's up with this whole "surrender to us" theme blizzard Is doing with the alliance. The alliance has every reason to attack the trolls and they arent going to surrender , granted they are too stubborn to do so, nor should the alliance be so nice to them. And why would the attack place a wedge between the horde and ZT? Even the war campaign shows they are best buds
Would love to see more of Rastakhan story really :( shame.
I am extremely disappointed to see Rastakhan go this early. I saw that his death is coming inevitably but I was hoping that they will postpone it long enough to let him fix some of his mistakes and have some more of sweet bonding with his daughter. Such a waste!I am also disappointed to see the only relevant gnome go.Why can't we for a difference kill off humans? They have a big roster unlike trolls.Looks like I'll have to put away game for a while but this is a big blow for my enjoyment.At least they could make Rokhan not Nathanos rally the forces.
I was willing to put money on Rastakan getting killed and no alliance dying. Seems I was right. Everyone knows Mekkatorque isn't dead and will just be revived 'when they need him most'. @#$%ty writing at its finest.

Whoa. That's a lot of info! Kinda gross that Gallywix beats Mekkatorque. That's like being farted at to death by a ball of fat. Maybe Mekkatorque will have a weird fate like Magni, and be unthawed for some strange new story. Maybe they want some of the gnome girls that have been in stories to get bigger roles? Talanji isn't perfect at all--she's extremely proud. Not a bad trait, but it's still one of the deadly sins, you know, and can cause a downfall.
