Sylvanas did nothing wrong. "As one of the Forsaken, you must massacre any who pose a threat to the new order, Human, Undead, or otherwise." once Forsaken. always Forsaken!
Humans try to purge undead from lordaeron for a decade because they are monsters, "That's fine."Undead want to kill all humans in stormwind because they don't want to be purged, "Those monsters!"
Maybe was it n'zoth.
If the forsaken used to be Alliance when they were alive, would they be considered traitors now?Also, what's the difference between death knights and forsaken when it comes to faction choices? Forsaken humans are horde. But human death knights are alliance. Forsaken human death knights are horde...I've played for 10 years but I don't know enough about forsaken lore.
Sylvanas is so monstrously powerful and influential that even the Void are terrified of her.And yet she continues to play by the Horde's internal rules when she's never been a particular fan of them.It might be hard to swallow, but you have to consider the possibility that Sylvanas is doing what she does for a defensible reason. She wants to be safe so needs the Forsaken to be strong and safe. The Forsaken, in order to be strong and safe, need the Horde. Thus, what serves the Horde ultimately serves Sylvanas, and a step too far to split that connection would go against her interests.
My complaint is the sloppy writing about Alliance starting with the pre-release Novel where Anduin is made out to be a tree-hugger who just wants world peace even though he can see there is a Warchief who just wants to turn any dead body she sees into a Forsaken. Seriously would anyone in the Alliance follow Anduin into battle against Sylvanus given a chance? Jaina makes a bit part appearance even though she’s going to be a focus in BfA with no explanation where she’s been - give me a break. Talk about total Horde character focus.Then we come to Uldir the first raid which made no sense to Ally players from a lore standpoint - we’re just told there’s evil there we need to fight. Bearing in mind it’s on a different island and if you haven’t done the Nazmir quest you won’t know about Ghuun. Poor, poor writing.So I gave up and decided to create a Horde alt and found the storyline for the whole expansion makes sense, with death as a major theme (which is never is on the Ally side), the Horde getting to choose to disagree with the Warchief. Wouldn’t that have been wonderful for the Alliance? I think so. I know a lot of Alliance players who like me believe Anduin is unfit to lead the Alliance and Greymane could easily have been set up as an alternative hardline to take on Sylvannus.Having reached 120 on Horde the experience from a lore point of view, design of cities, choices of mounts etc shows Blizz put way more time and thought into the Horde and basically threw the Alliance story together to fit it. I mean how much green paint is there in Kul-Tiras? Because everyone seems to have used it.I really hope the situation improves because it seems totally unsatisfactory to Ally players to get such second hand work.Because there is no one left in Blizzard who cares about the Alliance. Just look at any BlizzCon, it’s all about their wittle horde babies. In a way that’s a good thing, because the last person who cared about us (Metzen) turned us into “captain America” faction, according to his words. Just look at Danuser or Afrasiabi, the horde and forsaken fanbois making the wondrous experience for us.Inb4 some blood elf player jumps in and tells “YOU HAVE CHRISTIE GOLDEN REEEE!”, no we don’t. She cares about Anduin and non-toxic masculinity only and that’s what damages the Alliance more than the Horde in the long run. I doubt even 10% of Alliance players want peace now, after all the greenskins did. Yet Anduin’s opinion is the only one we get.Christie Golden’s writing honestly makes me wish that the Divine Bell Garrosh dropped on Anduin was heavier and bigger. Everything she wrote in the post-Legion lore HAS to revolve around how Anduin is the embodiment of purity, love and perfection, and how Sylvanas’ is an evil witch with 0 redeeming qualities . There’s absolutely no room for character consistency, development or anything silly like that. There’s only room for her silly political agendas and delusions she wants to shove down the throat of people who just want to enjoy a story about a brutal all-out faction war.Alliance story - "FORGIVE ME MAMA"Horde story - "Die Old God slaves, LOKTAR OGAR MADAFKERS"
