Both factions clinging to this artificial war and (mostly horde) commiting stuff so the Alliance have a villian to fight… how can this be a good thing?
Seriously this entire bull… has been driven on over the years to satisfy the part of the community that loves the faction war, not to have a consistent game world.
Meanwhile within WoW so many things happened that probably would have never allowed things like Teldrassil to happen. After Garrosh no Horde member (or very few) would have blindly followed any Warchiefs orders. Also after Legion soldiers would kinda certainly not have started fighting their allies from the order halls. Whole classes would probably have rejected this fight…
Blizzard needs to make a cut, whipe things “clean” if anyone wants a faction conflict. What we need therefor is merge Alliance and Horde to some degree (even if only alli them) and then create a new faction as the “bad guys”.
Maybe they’ll actually do that and introduce an undead (more savage and cruel) faction under Sylvanas. THEN we could have some wars that maybe would even make sense and also a clear hero / antagonist setting. Right now Horde is always forced to be the baddies, while they keep getting told how they are not.
And yes the “past” happened and crimes happend and hatred exists and so on and so on… but WoW needs to evolve based on happenings and not stagnate in an internal conflict. (Also not saying BfAs lore seems good and logical so far x.x kinda more trying to see some light at the end of this tunnel).
