"It's not Garrosh/MOP/SoO 2.0!!!!"

General Discussion
"Because Sylvanas is worse"

That's your argument and reasoning Blizz?

That's what makes this storyline different than Garrosh's to you?

Virtually everything is progressing the same as the rebellion vs Garrosh and it's continuing into 8.1 but your reason why it's not the same is that Sylvanas is worse....

You really the missed the part we are worried about... The story arc is the problem, not the characters and who's 'worse'
FWIW, I truly believe this current story is a much better use of these particular plot elements.

No doubt that they're running down the bullet points of MoP's faction war story in BfA though.

It's just a shame BfA won't get any points for what they do right because it's always going to be "Garrosh 2.0".
It's completely predictable and that is the worst thing you can make a story.

Predictability and quality are mutually exclusive in fiction writing. Predictable stories are akin to the writers themselves giving spoilers.

It doesn't really matter what Blizzard decides to do, people will always cry about the Lore. I remember when these boards wouldn't shut up about how sloppy, and lazy Wrath and Arthas's story was during the time.
Do you guys remember when they promised that Garrosh had a more or less redemption arc coming? And, by the end, when we defeated and humiliated him at Orgrimmar, players were left stunned because, throughout the extent of the expansion's development, players were told by devs to ignore their gut feeling and logic about Garrosh being irredeemable and trust the process?

Do you guys realize that Nathanos Blightcaller is a self insert of Steve Danuser? That fact, by itself, should speak volumes for what 14 years of rich wow lore has been reduced to.

He doesn't get it till it actually happens. Claiming sylvy as Garrosh 2.0 would assure she will become a raid boss. I'm not denying this won't happen, but for the love of Pete how about we actually wait till the end before calling it "predictable?"

It's predictable because it follows Garrosh WAY to closely to be anything else and that worries the community when horde hates being labeled 'the bad guys' at the end of each Xpack.

They could have clearly used before the storm, and legion lore to help make BFA not so lop sided by making Whanduin attack first to retaliate against Sylvanas being the new warchief and letting his dad die plus getting Lordearon back for Calia menethil because we don't know how long the book and the game lore is so it would work.

Also why shouldn't players not hate BFA lore? apart from Thral and Sourfang there is no other old lore character really that stand out, and Sourfang only stands out because of BFA and being so 'Honor' bound.
Reskins and rehashed stories. What else can you expect from a multi billion dollar company, right?!

Actually I think it is going to be more of a civil war to be honest.
