The audio is cutting out for Hearthstone. LOL. That kind of sums up my feelings about it lately. And it's kicking back in for Overwatch.
"What I want is my Horde back!"

Bold words for a guy who just let Sylvanas have it and sat in prison for MONTHS after Lordaeron. Piss off, dude.

He had no backing what was he going to do challenge her to a makgora or whatever? The last 2 times that happened people cheated you don’t think Sylvanas would too? Dudes probably battling some serious geriatric depression too.

"What I want is my Horde back!"

"Not this Horde that tries to kill you all the time, you see, but the other Horde that tries to kill you all the time."

"...what on Earth is the difference to me, then?"

"One tries to kill you in a orcier way. We have to get back to our traditional values, Anduin."

If the story never addresses this, I'm going to rip my hair out.

On a completely unrelated note, if anyone knows any good wig brands, hmu.
WARCRAFT 3 REMASTERED. MISS ME WITH THIS WOW CLASSIC STUFF.

Oh man. This is crisp stuff. This is WAY better than the StarCraft Brood War Remaster.

Oops. Missed it in my original one after I rolled my eye so hard at J. Allen Brack sounding like he was doing a scripted advertisement for DIABLO 3 ON THE NINTENDIE SWITCH!!!!111one which is the only news we loyalists have had in... well, a while.
I want my Horde back, too, but if my choices are between Sylvanas partisanship for Scourge Lite “Horde” or rehashing the rebellion plot of MoP with an Orc who is already beyond redemption, I think I’d rather just unsubscribe or somehow RP my way out of this hot mess.

Agreed. I've never even played Warcraft 3, but I heard only good things about it.

I'd love it if they made it moddable so you could play OG Dota, too.
Saurfang needs to die.
Guess we’re having a Horde Civil War in this thread. No one is touching a hair on Saurfangs head.
I liked the Lost Honor cinematic because it showed once again that Blizzard cares about developing Anduin as a realistic character with flaws and doubts.

It also showcases the grievous toll this war has had on the Alliance. Despite their small victories, it appears the Alliance is losing the war to Sylvanas.

The segment with Saurfang felt very cheap by comparison, though, because thus far he has done next to nothing to support the views he espouses in the cinematic.
So it's...MoP? What happened to "we absolutely can surprise you?"
Diablo next. I am prepared to be disappointed so hard. OH GOD IT'S GONNA BE MOBILE.

It’s worse than I imagined ITS A FING PREQUEL AND A MOBILE GAME

Go to hell and not in the fun way Blizz.
Sitting here at work cackling that they actually went and confirmed that Saurfang is working with Anduin directly.

Have they revealed anything about the story going forward yet?

Also "Sylvanas' path of destruction"

Hooooooooo boy

No. We're still in the opening bits, basically soft advertisement for upcoming projects but with more details at the individual stages later. TBH I probably won't be able to keep up and will just end up C&Ping the MMO-C thread if people aren't gonna just go to MMO-C.

WarCraft "What's Next?" is in 3 hoursish.
