I encourage anyone who doesn't understand why we are upset by Ion's answer to please read the OP.


I think most people understand. People are upset because they spent so long in a discussion echo chamber and dismissed any dissenting opinions as trolls or people that just don't want them to be happy, then Ion and Blizzard did not give them what they want. It wasn't a rude response, it wasn't arrogant. He apologized for being unable to put something in that he knows you wanted, and he gave you reasons. But because you didn't get your way, you'll throw him in with all those other people who must just have wanted to be mean to you (because how could ANYONE actually disagree, right?) and try to lawyer out some sort of way his very reasonable stated reasons should not be considered.


Fair enough, that is your opinion and I wont argue that. But in my opinion, Ion was very Ill informed and arrogant in his response. That's my opinion and I believe many people here share it.

CONCLUSION:
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IN THE FUTURE

The final words of this response are perhaps the most legitimate. Anything is Possible in the Future. High Elves are possible in the future. Well, they should be more than a possibility. They should be guaranteed. The Horde has no right to monopolize a specific aesthetic anymore than the Alliance does, and the fact this was alluded to as an acceptable answer to the matter is nothing short of ludicrous.


At this point, with how desperate you guys want high elves and with how little anyone seems to care about faction distinctions, the horde might as well get alliance's most popular race model, humans, in exchange for high elves(blood elves), horde's most popular race model.

Just have blizz make up some excuse that a group of alterac humans are secretly alive and want to join the horde again to oppose the alliance or some bs. Because at this point, it seems high elf supporters truly want gameplay to overtake w/e rational is left of blizzards lore, so might as well give the horde an equivalent exchange.
Lol, we were literally just discussing this on the Helf discord. Consensus? Yeah, that's an awesome idea, get to it Blizz.

I remember when people would get mocked and ridiculed and told to stop when people posted about Vanilla servers and flying too.

Heh.


Dude you're comparing apples with a t-bone steak.

I'll repeat myself here. High Elves are LITERALLY blue eyed blood elves.

Flying was a feature of WoW since TBC. Vanilla Servers are whole new servers to appease toe masochist that want to deal with 2 pieces of loot for 40 people.
Its gonna be so great in BFA when all the remaining Alliance Helfs rejoin the Horde Belfs
which is unlikely because when lor'themar tried to to bring them back into the fold, they threatened to decapitate him, also do you really think the blood elves will forget the purge

Why would the Horde burning down one of their ally's home make the high elves join the blood elves? They already hate the Horde and the belf with a burning passion, why would the Horde doing even worse things than they've done in the past change their mind?


Way off,

Sylvanas & Vereesa will lead the Unseen Path to see what is going on at Teldrassil. Finding it corrupted. The Unseen Path will split with the Sentinels not wanting to fight against their own even if the have been corrupted. Sentinels will attempt to kill Sylvanas but killing Vereesa by mistake as she pushed Sylvanas out of the way. Silver Covenant will side with the Sylvanas and the Dark Rangers out of anger of Vereesa death. Some coming back later as new Dark Rangers some rejoining the Horde Helfs.

Holy cow, are you forgetting something?

THEY WERE BLOOD ELVES!

And the Alliance was just like "Well, you were BLOOD ELVES and you were TRYING TO KILL US FOR MANY YEARS... But now that you're Blueberry Elves... we'll forgive you ;]

How does that make sense at all?

Its gonna be so great in BFA when all the remaining Alliance Helfs rejoin the Horde Helfs except for the few who die and become Dark Rangers. Due to whats going to happen at teldrassil. Tis why they wont be a playable race.


At this point, if were Ion and friends? As a response to the nasty bashing these people have given him, I actually would give the Horde High Elves. New racials, start zone... the works. That would be my personal middle finger for the unreasonable and petty hatred they've spewed.


I'd love to see the sub counter drop, I'd laugh.

If ALL the alliance switched to Belf/Helf for Horde, that would leave what? 10-20% Alliance vs 90-80% Horde? No way, I like my High elf as is!

blizz can write it however they want. which has been the sticky point for me about all this. they could have written alliance high elves in, written in a reason why they aren't identical, changed the models, made them not as pretty by making even prettier belf models, and problem solved, but they just dont want to. the alliance is just here to pay subs so the horde can keep playing.

I realize you were trying to be facetious here, but no joke, this is genuinely a thing I want and would be all for it.

They don't want to include naga or ogres or vrykuls or etherals as races even though people have asked for them for years too. It's not all about you, sunshine.

Omg stop.


Never. We are not going to be forced into doing what you want.

It was pretty apparent that this was a Pro-High Elf thread. No one forced you to open it up. If you are that triggered, there are plenty of other topics in the forums to go play in.
I support High Elves as a playable Alliance Allied Race.

Wow, and you guys accuse US of coming up with fan fiction. Literally non of that makes sense. As someone who loves wiki's as much as you do, Input, I'd expect you to know that.
