@MickyNeilson Any plans to continue the storyline about the Light Tyrande saw? And possibly some good stuff with Tyrande coming?

All kinds of good stuff coming!
Best bit right here.

Right here guys.

We can all go home.

I might be a bit biased.

EDIT: This Blizzard attitude towards villains is what feeds people like Milennia, who while crazy do have a point that they don't need to fear the Burning Legion or the Old Gods, or whatever the fuck that isn't Horde, because it was only Horde that made permanent gains on them.
Again the entire notion is crazy but it is given substance by terrible handling of villains in WoW.
I agree somewhat. There is a degree of pointlessness in focusing on fighting the 'real' threat of the Horde as its a fight that doesnt have an end. Any progress is mostly consmetic. I prefer a story not to be just a merrygoround and as such tend to favor third party villians as the main antagonists.

Part of the problem is we generally always are winning in WoW. We very rarely actually lose to third parties. As a result they always seem like smaller threats. The other faction on the other hand we do lose to.

If we look at the lore then these third party threats are a bigger threat than the opposite faction. The Horde has never posed the same end of the world threat as the Burning Legion or Deathwing have. The problem probably lies in that we assume that we will be victorious over these foes and so don't take them as seriously. Thats really just game mechanics effecting the tone of the story rather than a serious measure of threat.

Hey, if anyone should be thanking you it's Omacron.

He'd pretty much be the whipping boy without you here.

Cemo, you know that "Pandowan" is a pun/Star Wars joke, right? ^^;

Yes, I know. But it's also a Pandaren term.

My doubt arose because, in the beginning of Pearl of Pandaria, Strong Bo refered to the cubs as "Pandowans".

But latter, Bo says that Chen and him were the best "Pandowan students". So... Pandowan didn't mean student and it sounded like... a discipline (like the Omnia, Wu Kao and Blackguard).

Now Micky confirmed it's used to refer to the young Pandaren (so... it doesn't mean "student").

I hoped it was like the Pandaren version of "thero'shan".

No concrete answer to my Exodar question.

Also I think you tweet Micky too often, Cemotucu. Not my problem, but you might wanna slow it down a bit, just in case.

Kosak answers too. I've got an answer from him in the past. He's just less of a twitter person.

They have/had the forums, but they appear unwilling to use it any more. Probably because of the tendency for both sides to be long winded or something. Ghostcrawler mentioned something like that a few weeks back, if I remember correctly.

I like the idea that "pandowan" is just a term derived from the way a small child would pronounce "pandaren." It's prolly the Star Wars thing, but I still like my theory.

Yeah, they probably have their own reasons for which questions they choose to answer or ignore. And sometimes they're just busy. Either way, odds are that if someone doesn't answer something the first time, they won't answer it the next two times either.

I know... But Kosak tends to only answer MoP related things... or last patch related things.

Mickey answers about more things, about short stories, future publishing content, etc.

ghost of Cairne? Genn? Draenei? Liadrin? Tauren? A response concerning Illidan returning? My favorite twitter feed of all time.

Should we really trust this guy who is promising such ''great'' content? Blizzard might scrap it in the future, and replace it with shitty journal adventures through panda land.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Oooooh, he answered something about Genn wedding Tess to Isiden. Remarked that it would have made strategic sense.

Also disagree. They are certainly more interesting than either faction at this point.
