That was indeed a retarded retcon. And how come Mal'ganis got to live? Was'nt Frostmourne supposed to devour souls? Cause if so, Arthas did kill him once he got it.

As much as I like Muradin since he's a dw... erm, has a great character, his survival, along with Mal'Ganis definitely didn't help dissuade the ineptitude of Arthas's power during WLK.

I don't even know why they brought him back... he served no purpose.

...who LIKED Mal'ganis? He was a bland villain ON PURPOSE.

I'd just... I'd undo so many things.... I guess if I had to pick one... like... maybe... I guess villainizing and killing Kael'thas sounds right.

I'd have two things in mind.

First choice.

Sylvanas replacing Garrosh as the big bad of MOP.

Second.

Garrosh beating the rebellion, and forcing them back into the fold.

How I can dream.

Yeah, if I could go back in time and force the devs to make one change, this, ultimately, would be the big ones. Dial down all the faction conflicts, let the reputation system note any major differences, and let everyone group together. Keep the faction war mostly in the background, if not practically non-existent. Forsaken (if still PC) would be hostile to almost everyone. Humans would be friendly with Dwarves and Gnomes, Neutral to Night Elves, Unfriendly to Orcs (with a hard/obscure/grindy rep quest that could allow a human to be welcomed in Orgrimmar eventually). This would allow some inter-factional tension, while keeping actual faction war to a minimum and allowing people to play what they wanted to play.

I mean, I don't think that would work NOW without resolving a few of the worst loose threads of the faction war (IE, Ashenvale and Lordaeron/Gilneas). but it would have been perfect for back when the game started.

You're still on it even after all those years ? You impress me*, Machalak.

*Which is to say, Eraten/Yorvik who was a part of Praesidium. I'm not sure that it is a compliment to impress me !

I'd retcon the formation of the Warcraft universe. You should've seen the in-universe bitching that happened at that point, anyways.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

Squids are too. Even, if they can turn depressive sometimes.

1) Make the Draenei less ridiculous or remove them. More in tune with the light, older than nelves with technology above gnomes. Plus the retconning of the Eredar into dupes. I don't want Eredar to be dupes.

The Draenei are just...blargh

How is the big question? There is obviously a problem with Draenei, but how do you "make them less ridiculous" in your opinion?

Maybe reduce their physical size to the same as a human. Or make Worgen significantly bigger
Give the humans some saints and powerful mythical beings.
The Draenei have an angel and propthet in their ship

Also make the Draenei lose their immortality so they can be somewhat in the same boat as the elves

Maybe have Draenei and gnomish scientists have dialogue. Like the gnomes have better mechanical engineering while the Draenei have more knowledge on physics.

Maybe show their flaws a bit more with the broken.

Its like Blizz was like lets make this ultra uber awesome race and give it to the alliance. Then they realize, oh shit we made them too awesome now what do with them.
