He said it's not based on varying European mythology, yet almost all of it is. His feelings or personal political beliefs dont change the fact that it is. The people who created the lore originally created it so. This forced inclusion of modern political ideals is an exclusion of the identities that created wow lore borrowing from their ancestors history and mythology. Do you watch Crouching Tiger hidden dragon and get mad there are no trans people, white people, black people, etc.? He doesnt realizing he's contributing the the erasure of his own culture and history. While it's just a game. It's happening in every aspect of world politics and entertainment. It does matter.
I am glad that there will be more about Sylvanas' motivations. She is the most complex and interesting character in Warcraft lore and I cannot wait to explore more of her.
Would it kill interviewer to not kiss up to Sylvanas? The only detail I'm interested in about her fate is in how many pieces husk of this villainous self-obsessed hypocrite scum will be chopped. There's a point where you need to stop unquestionably loving a 100% Villain Sue and she passed it long, long ago. And yes this is plain and straight kissing up to her. Anybody with a tiniest shred of conscience knows answer to "Is it possible for her to be redeemed?" and wouldn't ask it. At least not in those words.
