Saurfang, Darkshore, Night Warriors was an absolute sh*t show, obviously.
I often find myself agreeing with them. But their reasoning for thinking Darkshore's story is okay was kinda... bad.
Apologizing for the Darkshore story is just like the apologists that told us to "Wait for the Teldrassil scenario to come out before you judge! We don't know Sylvanas is going to burn the tree, it could be anybody!"Well I waited, and it was garbage. Blizzard isn't going to pull some magical twist and undo what's been shown in the PTR. They're not that clever or risk-taking.
Can your clickbait pictures not include story stuff from ptr? trying not to ruin every aspect of a patch with no release date
Such a cute wow couple:)
Seems like we have a mild $%&* show in some of these comments! ("GARBAGE!") Way to model, Wowhead-ians!P.S. Thanks for the T & E link--love those guys.
It's so weird, I read these comments before I watched the video so I was expecting a lot more defending the Darkshore story.Instead it was striking how critical Taliesin was of it. The only real "defence" he gave was that we don't have the whole story yet, which is undeniable, inarguably true - it doesn't change the fact he called aspects of it jarring and upsetting. He just thinks that might be because of the aforementioned lack of information as opposed to a conspiracy to ruin Night Elf lore.
Their positive attitude is usually admirable, but feels a bit forced in this case.First, the writing in BfA - outside the leveling zones and storylines - is consequently and predictably bad, the War Campaign is likely the most cheesy and forced mess I ever saw in an AAA game. I don't see any reason for optimism here. Second, it's not a book. You can't throw in frustrating and illogical events for shock value and redeem the story 200 page later with a plot twist. This means months, maybe years in an ongoing MMO story. A terrible idea, especially in a faction-themed setting where players already pissed (on both side) due the general direction of the story.
i disagree with them on the darkshore events.On several levels. lets explore why:- the speed of turning to the horde....then can put a 5 min long cinematic after the ressing. It still does not make it logic.- its not just the ressing. Its the fact we lose 2 heroes again ( we are out like 5 times more hero's as the horde right now). - Its also the fact its a not just 2 night elves. Its a $%^& ton of night elves. There are more black dragons as night elves right now.- Its a other loss for the alliance....- horde wants more dark rangers...here you go.- horde gets night elves....so where are the alliance high elves...ohhh they do not exist. those are just some rebel/left over elves.- and the fact that the most powerfull druid + a very strong night warrior leader can not beat 3 hero's and a val'kyr is also insulting. ( i know val'kyr) dies but they still get away.I like their video's sometimes. But sometimes like this one...they ( taliesin and evitel) miss the point. And act like we are the problem. Like saying: you have not seen the whole story....that got old after the burning of the tree. And it still does not explain 2 night elf hero's just changing to horde in a flat second.Ohhh and Ion...8.1 should give us a win right? ( as alliance). Where is it? the fact we loose the battle of zuldazar ( we loose more and get driven out so its a loss). Or the fact the night elves get even more f^%$#d over...as alliance player i really feel like blizzard is trying to make us all quit the game. Horrible story, weird/bad allied race choices (either in looks or races), we loose way more ground , battle's and hero's then the horde, the racial inbalance is so big top 100 hall of game horde raid groups has been filled, alliance is only at 12 etc etc.fEnough said. Ion , just say it in the next Q&A that you want the alliance to quit. Just rip of the bandage.
So if Night Elves kill Undead Night Elves is considered a win against the Horde?Nope. It's one race killing itself. Blizz way of balancing stories strikes once again.
I predict the plot of BfA will go as follows: first we get to see how Sylvanas descends deeper and deeper into blackness, with Horde actually working for her, then she crosses some threshhold or moral grayness that even all the Horde turns against her, but it's too late as she managed to unearth the Heart of N'Zoth and now threatens the stability of the whole world, but luckily Alliance and Horde band together to defeat her, and when it seems like Spirit of Vol'Jin is about to smash her brittle body with his glaive, Taran Zhu will appear and tell that she must be judged properly, then bronze dragon will save her and send her to the timeline where Arthas has sieged Silvermoon so she can instead pledge loyalty to him and give start to the Silver Scourge and this will be the theme of the upcoming expansion: Generals of Quel'Thalas.Mark my words.
Do both sides always have to win every battle for the community to be happy? I don't understand what's so infuriating about the story. Night elves forced into killing their undead-own should make you feel more strongly about dealing with the horde, not hate the writing team for inspiring your fury. A game is not a book or a movie, it's not a comic book. This is about you and your journey through situations you can half-control. The stage set around you is inspiration and nothing else. I would say that Sylvanas' actions have made me conflicted about my commitment to the horde...if I were actually a freshly recruited Nightborne hunter and not a human person with things to do in my life. The stage is so little. If it has really convinced you to stop playing, you're missing out.
