Rather than plopping the entire conflict on the Horde again, why not have Varian decide, after the Siege of Orgrimmar is concluded, to renege on his supposed agreement with the Horde rebels and just kill everyone in the city, only to have the Alliance pushed out by an outraged Thrall, who then pledges to preserve the Horde at any cost?
That way, the Alliance player base gets to see their faction taking the conflict seriously, you get to see Thrall commit to the war, and the Horde's fight with the Alliance no longer looks like a kid eating glue from the jar, because they'd finally have a good reason to fight.
I wouldn't mind this, but I think it would be another huge 180 for Varian after we just had a patch dedicated to making him a nicer character. It would be really out of character for him to do something like this at this point. Please remember that a lot of people really hated his character when he openly attacked Thrall and I don't see this helping one bit.
I think it should probably be a more furious and vengeful character, like Tyrande or Jaina. Hell, I would like Genn to do something that would actually stir conversation as well.
I agree, it's a good idea, but Varian shouldn't be the one trying to make it happen, I think it should be Tyrande.
If this actually does happen, I could accept Thrall as my Warchief again. But only if he dons the Doomhammer Plate again.
I miss when Thrall was an Orc, and not a green Human.
