I don’t want to argue about every single point here anymore, but let me rephrase my initial statement for a better understanding.
Daelin Proudmoore as a character was intended to be in the wrong. That was the entire purpose of the campaign: He was supposed to be someone stuck in the past, someone who couldn’t let go of his hatred, and didn’t see the future. You are also supposed to feel sympathy for him: You can understand why he is the way he is. And now with BfA you can also see that he was a loving and caring father which makes him even more likeable. But, he was still in the wrong regarding the Horde.
…or was he? And this is the central problem. If you want a character like Daelin to be in the wrong, then you need to show it. You need to show that the Horde has changed for the better otherwise you’re undermining your own narrative. You can introduce a character like Garrosh. And I think Garrosh was actually decently written: Many younger orcs looked up to him, as they didn’t really understand why they get punished for the sins of their forefathers. An interesting angle with potential for the future plot.
In the end only the most fanatical and brutal parts of the Horde sided with Garrosh at least according to Blizzard. And that should have been it. Over. Finished. The Horde was now fully reformed. Well…two years later and we have Sylvanas a whole different caliber.
Something like Teldrassil should have never happened. And Saurfang should have never been willing to follow Sylvanas into another war. But, both of these events happened. Not only that it becomes even worse: Sylvanas has the support of the people according to the writers.
And you’ve done it Blizzard: Your writing is collapsing on top of you. You’re telling me that the people follow Sylvanas? Have the orcs especially not learned anything? Why are the blood elves fine with the Ashenvale campaign? Does no one of them thinks about the Third War and how similar these events are?
And now I look back at Daelins statement, how the Horde will never change. He was proven right in the end. Maybe I can go further: He was pretty reasonable. If he would have wiped out the Horde then maybe the night elves wouldn’t be homeless now.
And with this now in mind everything comes back, every single betrayal, backstab, attack or war crime the Horde has ever committed. Everything piles up and it gets more. Other factions got completely wiped out for lesser crimes.
BfA has undermined the writing of years. The current writing is not even atrocious anymore. The writing is so bad, that the English language hasn’t a word for it (at least I cannot think of any). The entire development of the Horde from Warcraft 3 up until Mists of Pandaria was thrown out of the window for cheap shock value, and because the Horde had to start another war. Why? No one knows.
But, Blizzard finally did it: The completely and fully ruined the lore.
