There'd also be no enemies at all except for demons, which is an issue Blizz is specifically trying to avoid after WoD had too much orcs.

And if there were other reps to gain and non-demon enemies to fight, it'd make the Legion look ridiculous for not having wiped them out on their home turf.
we dont know much about the entire planet aside from a few areas. Sure it is legion controlled but the Army of the light is there (so there we have a faction) , it is a Whole new world.

Aside from that, Noone expected Draenor after MoP, few expected Broken isles after Draenor. Most of you guys expected that we would enter the DP and see the whole world taken over by azshara or some crazy shit, without acknowledging the fact what happens in this one Carries into the next one. Or for that matter that WE HAD CONTACT with azeroth the Entire Time. Should something happen that was more important than Draenor we WOULD KNOW IN AN INSTANT.

Now granted Legion invasion was that stuff.

As for Azshara, It is better that she has a more behind the scenes stuff going on for her, (speaking of behind the scenes stuff i am sad the stuff about Gallywix trying to get Steamwheedles into the horde was noncanon)

...so Vanessa Van Cleef specialty is poisons... but she is considered Outlaw in the missions.

Yes, I get it, she comes from a pirate background, her father could be considered a pirate... Deadmines is a pirates dungeon... it just triggers me so much for no reason.

Jesus christ, no Illidari 3rd faction. If this Illidan-senpai horsecrap goes on for more than it has to I quit.

I still have hope Illidan and his otaku club won't be as relevant as it seems. I mean we're past that, but maybe it won't be that terrible.

Zabra Hexx is a shadow priest despite being the only known troll convert to the Holy Light.

I'd have settled for him being a discipline priest since he could merge his Voodoo with the Holy Light, but he's full on shadow.

they obviously gave up on it before BC even started serious production, you would have understood that if you had even an elementary level of reading comprehension, when the original devs got canned durning MC and shit leading to the whole thing with the legendary neck and all that


but I don't want a third faction, I want no factions, but it was clear that at some point during BCs development adding a third faction was planned

Poor Ravenbears. They were only trying to appease the dragons.

ofc there was no capital, no clearly seeded faction tabards, or banners, or crest, or starter zones, or faction specific class seeded definitely not seeding Shivarra priest with special fel tinted racials or anything

definitely not a quickly retooled plot that makes nearly 0 sense culminating in a "Villian" having almost 0 impact over the questing experience and one of the player races and 3 of the heros of wc3 turning evil for literally 0 reason besides "lul lets kill Illidan"

the idea was probably smothered in the crib, but it was clearly there. Kinda like how you can see the seeding of the garrison in mop or world quest in 6.2 or how timewalking was being worked on since mop

and we know they shake up the finished project late into the cycle (and still do as they talked about with legion scaling tech coming in at the end)

it's not that hard to connect dots

WC3 characters turned evil for no reason all the time. Illidan wasn't an exception to that. Also the guy went off the deep end so many times even in WC3 - the guy was only in Outland because he fucked up and ran away to hide from Kil'Jaden after all - that him being a villain was pretty consistent, if poorly built up.

I usually just ignore your posts (for obvious reasons) but lord almighty you're not just annoying, you're obnoxious. And for an american you could write better than a 12 yo - at least better than me, a 19 yo Brazillian with no international experience and no reading comprehension skills apparently. Get off your high horse, jackass.

Blocked, can't believe I haven't done this already.

This is a pathetic level of wannabe Guzog... You might wanna go get your priorities straight.

Illidan.....Unhappy Anchovy said on another site that Illidan had the potential to be a hero. His narcissism and insanity kept getting in the way. I think that if Illidan faces those parts he COULD be a hero. Kerrigan was similar in that if she faced her inner demons and her desire for revenge she was genuinely heroic (as seen in the korhal attack and legacy).

I'm going to let you into a little secret.

Several people on this forum know/knew people within Blizzard and know more than you.

At least when I shitpost, I'm not a dick about it. My shitposts are cheeky and fun. His shitposts are just cruel and tragic.

If I wanted to, I could probably say the same about the wardens being a hero class/watcher faction, being smothered by DH's Release to keep WoW afloat after WoD.
