I have no problem with fanon, I have a problem with Fojar pretending his fanon is fact.

Not to mention the logical leaps in this case are pretty big.
Sylvanas doesn't know about the whole "there must always be a Lich King" thing + wasn't there when Arthas died + Jaina knows about Bolvar = OMG Alliance killed Arthas!

None of those three facts require the Alliance alone to have killed Arthas.

Well we already know who killed Arthas: it was the Argent Crusade, Tirion and whoever it is that owns Shadowmourne. Plus Terenas and the other spirits of Frostmourne.

Edit: Didn't realize this was the fan-art section, shouldn't have posted this here.

The nature of the raid requires that it was only one faction because not only is it so different depending on the faction but there's an entire section dedicated to fighting the opposing faction and ensuring that they can't go any further.

That fact taken in combination with these other facts very clearly points to an Alliance victory.

That's not how the picture depicted it. It depicted it as a Horde raid, and that's what sparked this conversation. This was also before Edge of Night and The Shattering were released though, so the author had no way of knowing it wasn't a Horde raid.

It's probably going to end up being multiple heroes like Muradin, Tirion, Saurfang, and others jointly taking him down. I don't expect Sylvanas because of Edge of Night though.

Why would Muradin and Saurfang work together when both of them were trying to kill each other moments before? This idea doesn't make any sense with what we know about the raid.

Why do people keep pushing "both factions took him down" when that's IMPOSSIBLE as demonstrated by the raid itself?

Because the raid may not have happened exactly how it did in game? Blizzard doean't have to go with Alliance or Horde did it, they can say Alliance won the Gunship fight and then Varian and Saurfang reconciled, uniting together to strike Arthas down along with the Ashen Verdict.

Shit, one of Muradin't lines during the raid is about peace between the Alliance and the Horde because Bolvar is alive.

Muradon belives so but that will not matter as Bolvar asks Tirion to tell everyone that he died along with the lich king.

But there's absolutely nothing to suggest that this happened aside from wanting to claim that "everyone's a winner."

It's straight up replacing lore with different lore. That's called "retconning."

Even the fan art thread is not free of your fucking factional pride bullshit

No offense, but that looks like it was drawn by a 6-year old.

Who are the humanoids?

Yeah I know that, I already showed it to those artists I worked with.

The human male was one of the Alliance riders in Barrens, the woman is the Twilight prophet.

So you hate Stitches, Sons of Arugal, Hogger, elite Devilsaurs, Mor'Ladim, Fel Reavers and some other I can't recognize. I smell alliance stench on you!

I did not pick that fanart because I thought she was attractive. I picked it because I liked its style.
