Kul'Tiras being a pile of slag was a Jaina/Varian short story they had on the website back during... Cata/MoP, I think? Some nobles were making comments about it behind Jaina's back.

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

The one who spreads the info about Sylvanas deliberatelyis Anduin himself, calling the entire faction for war.

The first lie is a half-truth.
Well, Blizzard did ask the question "Why did the Horde burn down Teldrassil?". We should recall that the Horde was largely disgusted with Garrosh's behavior at Theramore. If this is just Theramore 2.0, there's no way they shouldn't be sick of this shit already. The Orcs should have no particular loyalty or admiration towards Sylvanas as a real Orc among Orcs. Her propaganda machine is, by nature, somewhat ineffective among the greater Horde. It doesn't speak to their culture.

This war won't make sense unless it can be sold to every single other race in the Horde. The Blood Elves were offered a place back in the Alliance through Alleria, and refused it. The Horde is willingly following Sylvanas, even in the cases where they have alternatives.

Why? Why do they listen to her when she screams "For the Horde!"? They shouldn't be willing to just go forth and have a Garrosh 2.0. Blizzard is probably hiding an extremely important twist to what goes down. Something that allows the Horde to support whatever action she's actually responsible for.

I made a topic in the main blizzard forums about void elves, high elves and those 3 propositions I posted a few pages back.

If you support the discussion, give a thumbs up there and reply.

they didn't distrust Garrosh for destroying Alliance forts, they did it because he used enslaved elementals and basically got the Horde massacred at Theramore to quench their bloodthirst before dropping the bomb

Now that you've posted it, I noticed: where the hell are Crestfall and Zul'dare?

ARM, i'm with you on all of this, just... y'know... don't turn into Past-Me. Don't know if you noticed but i can try to be as constructive as i can be, other than iGoD nobody even responds to me; i reckon i'm on half the board's block lists.

Sage advice. It's never pretty to look back at your past posts, its practically guaranteed to show you something to regret. Remaining constructive is not just better for the board its better for the soul!

Side note: Is there anyway to tell if someone is blocking you? Felt like I've been invisible to at least one poster for a little while now.

I've always wondered... (Before I turned unblockable and realised that people don't ignore me, just my posts. )

Maybe PMs or befriending them no longer works?

Hayir. Anyway, who’s going to be the Dark Iron’s racial leader? Same with the high mountain? Will the Princess troll lead the Zandalari?

I don't really comment on your posts because I find you intimidating. So if it's any consolation, I do read what you have to say.

Perhaps it's related to the Old Godish, Il'gynoth' whispers concerning Anduin?

Sylvanas' third death and resurrection would be a good way to get rid of her remaining valkyr. I really can't see Blizzard removing her permanently.

Can't speak for the rest of the folks here but I do read your posts mate. Although I'm more of a lurker here and not that frequent. Haven't found anything particular in your posts worth blocking though.

Yes.
Lightforged Draenei may not be led by Velen, but by Turalyon, so I believe these Dark Iron are independent from Moira.

We don't know yet, but Apep's guesses are likely accurate.

And here's a picture of one of my people.

Sometimes people just don't reply to your posts. Whuch isn't a bad thing: I rarely reply to a post I agree with.

And even your Twilight vampire physiology posts were more humerous than annoying.
