I have this theory based on what I saw in WoT event.
The scene where Malfurion is fighting Sylvanas, than Saurfang hit him in the back, than Sylvanas leaves and Tyrande appears.
Notice while the Alliance PC is showned to be immobilised by Sylvanas spell, the Horde PC is portrayed as a .
Someone that you know is there but yet it’s not aknowledge by none.
Sylvanas, Malfurion, Saurfang and Tyrande don’t even look at him or speak at him.
Than we have the restrictions (some examples):
- Forsaken PC liked the burning of Teldrassil, loves Sylvanas, but the narrative forces him to side with Saurfang, why ?
Because this is a 12+ age game. Kids can’t be taught being evil isn’t condemned.
Imagine the parents outrage if BfA would end with Sylvanas sitting in Stormwind throne with a sea of red blood, surrounding her.
- Tauren player loves peace and finds burning of Teldrassil disgusting. Why ?
The writers need to instigate hate in the players, we can’t have war if we don’t hate each other right ? Drama sells well apparently.
It’s like this: " I know you hate me and I HATE YOU EVEN MORE !" (Mr. Burns)
On my case I ask myself why Khadgar left.
Why Magni don’t allow my character to work only for him, and leave this stupid faction war, I am a champion #467 my job is to save Azeroth, not make matters worse.
I am not a corpse, why the hell I have to follow Nathanos like a dog every where.
I am sure Sylvanas wouldn’t miss soldier #45788464599 she doesn’t care for losses.
Saurfang got himself captured by the Alliance, maybe my character, sitting in the Stockades till the end of BfA isn’t bad considering all the moral crap I have to put with.
This is just my thoughts.
