Getting really tired of Blizz trying to tell me Sylvanas is any different from Garrosh..."Ooooh but see, Sylvanas said toMAto and this point, when Garrosh said tomaTO - see, totally different! How can you not see how different they are?"Both used the Horde to advance their own agenda, both caused a Horde rebellion, both rebellions finished their reign over their respective followers within the Horde, both ended their initial expansion escaping from the Horde, both return as a driving factor behind the threat of the next expansion. Their stories are 100% the same, so why even bother trying to explain to me that they are not? Even if they really do start acting differently from NOW on, doesn't change the fact that so far their stories were 100% the same.It's not even a big deal, it's not like re-using plots is a crime or particularly noteworthy. The only thing that made this so glaring and obvious was their constant denial of it.
Sigh, Ion is literally gaslighting me. The "parallels"? So garrosh leads the horde on a genocidal campaign, and Sylvanas leads the horde on a genocidal campaign. Both escape to another world in order to cause more harm.It's insulting.The problem is how bad the writing is. How terribly out of character heroes like Rexxar act. How stupid these allied race leaders are for joining the horde in a war to extinction - why would anyone sane do this? Risk it all when they have good relations?The storytelling in BfA was just horrendous and not "creating passions". This is typical marketing guy speak to "polarize". I hate it.For me, BfA DESTROYED my horde characters I have been playing a long time. How can I continue to play horde when they again turn to genocide? This is not a side I can be on. Call me sensitive lol but I take my role playing in RPG seriously. It would have been differently if I had played a brutal orc warrior or an evil undead rogue, but I played druid, paladin, and fresh out of legion standing side by side with my brothers I turn around and betray them, now have to help try to exterminate them? This had serious impact on my gameplay. I had to start over on alliance.Ion and the rest of the writers should all be fired in my opinion.
