World of Warcraft players take to the streets of Orgrimmar over Sylvanas

This went over great.

It’s been a bit of a weird month as the two big factions of World of Warcraft – no, not the Horde and Alliance but Classic and Retail – vie for the attention of the developers. This week, it’s been all about the Retail crowd with the launch of WoW 8.2.5 and the culmination of a key part of the Battle for Azeroth storyline, as we mentioned yesterday.

The WoW Reddit has been awash in plot spoilers and reactions since Tuesday, and then a curious thing happened: People on the RP servers started actually rioting and marching in-character.

This is why I love MMORPGS: Hundreds of players are standing on top of Orgrimmar gates and outside of them, Rioting the Banshee Queen (Argent Dawn EU-RP server, WoW) from MMORPG

People are marching around Orgrimmar to honor Saurfang (Argent Dawn EU-RP server) from wow

It also looks as though Blizzard has set key NPCs and groups on patrol in some of the key cities, including Liadrin, Thrall, and Geya’rah. New to MMOs? Nah, but still cool.

Stay tuned for our WoW Factor column later today, as we’ll break down the story points and weigh in on whether it all works as intended.

Good to see immersion alive and well and that the Fortnite kids haven’t taken over all of gaming.

They ruined my favorite faction leader, they should have left Sylvanis as the Undead leader exclusively, maybe having her branch off to form a legit evil faction.

Ruined how?

Sylvanas has always been a monster, she just usually has been good at playacting that she gave a damn

Did you actually read my comment or stopped at ‘They ruined my favorite faction leader’?

what part of ‘ they should have left Sylvanis as the Undead leader exclusively’ doesn’t fall under how?

I’m also well aware of how evil she is as you can clearly see when I suggested ‘maybe having her branch off to form a legit evil faction.’

except that wouldnt have really worked. She;d have had no allies when the humans tried to retake lordaeron, and the forsaken seem to enjoy their home in the horde.

Only because of bad writing, which is why I say they ruined her character; they could have had the Worgen and Goblins written to be evil in Cataclysm since the Humans always seemed to be racist against Undead so why not Werewolves as well, Goblins are opportunists with out a shred of ethics so they’d fit right in with an Evil Faction as long as they were getting paid; maybe some hand wavey explanation for Blood Elves joining up as well. Geographic proximity could have turned Northern Eastern Kingdoms into the hinterland for that third evil expansion, leaving the Horde to be morally gray, and the Alliance to be the good guys.

I’m talking about years of missed opportunities and bad writing since the end of Wrath with a few bright spots in the narrative keeping the game’s story mediocre.

Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy WoW, but it hasn’t been great since Wrath other than the Legion expansion which as an anomaly.

I agree that yes, Slyvanus will most likely,[guessing here], be granted just that. There are several ideas being floated,of course. However, it does seems fairly clear that she no longer cares for any “living” humanoids on Azeroth. She serves Death and Death alone. This, as Eliot has eluded to has been true from the very beginning of WoW.

Saw some of this around the web. I did login yesterday to check on the new goblin models but didn’t do any story. It’s a mixed bag, not happy that Pixxni looks cross-eyed now and the one casting animation where she looked angry after casting makes her look dopey or drugged instead, and regardless of your hair color as a female goblin, your eyebrows are always brown. On the plus side the quality of the textures and overall look is better.

eye color seems to be linked to faces now. a couple of the faces give you purple eyes.

Reader

Saw that too. Definitely needs some work down the road.

They’ve always had that. It was just harder to tell on the older models. Not really sure that was a bad thing…as the playable species was never really about their eyes, unlike Gnomes, Lyn or Elin, IMO.

Reader

Notice how they water downed many of the individual facial characteristics, so it’s hard to tell the them really apart now? It is though if they where all individual buildings that all got face-lifted by the same cheap cladding. /le sigh

Reader

Yep. They especially got rid of the ‘uglier’ ones that had wrinkles and such. I went with ‘cute’ faces on all mine, but don’t like player choice taken away. This is Pixxni right now, not terrible, but, I dunno, just lacks something now:

What she lacks is a drawing.

Reader

If you mean a commission, I actually have one made of her with her (my) favorite demon-a Shivarra.

Reader

But what if we were one of the ones that supported her all the way?

Reader
Nathan Aldana

hey, at least you get a bit of extra dialogue from sylvanas explaining how much she hates the world then.

Reader
Dakota Royal

you can go chill with her in the ghostlands. horde dont need no elf lovers…unless your blood elf, then they can go too

Reader
Nathan Aldana

Someone sounds like they have some weird-ass insecurities about pretty people.

Who needs Ghostlands, when my B’elf Pally is your fridge eating your ice cream. Yum, yum! <3
