I decided to change up what I normally write about, which is already random as it is, to create a quick post about World of Warcraft. In the current Battle for Azeroth story line, it seems that quite a bit of people vocally express their frustration with it. I see it all the time: an Twitter, in videos on YouTube, and even from my own friends and family. I understand that they don’t like it, but you know what?! I do.
Blizzard recently released patch 8.2.5, which brought about the conclusion to the war campaign story. I was actually really looking forward to this to see how it would play out. What would happen with the leader of the Horde and how would the group rising up to stop Sylvanas. My character played the side that followed Saurfang in the background while still working for the Warchief. Seeing the characters from the Horde and the Alliance coming together to put a stop to the war was fun. And the confrontation between Saurfang and Sylvanas at the gates of Orgrimmar was just epic. I got chills watching it.
What I enjoyed more was the fact that something else is brewing behind the scenes with Sylvanas. Everyone has been complaining that Blizzard is just rehashing the story line from Garrosh going insane with power, but I’ve never felt that way. I’ve always felt Sylvanas had something else up her sleeve, and now we know that she has something else planned. What that is we don’t know. Just some speculation based on a comment that she makes to those who sided with her throughout this expansion.
I actually can’t wait to see how this continues to play out. I really feel like Sylvanas will be a big part of the next expansion like she has been a big part of this one. Whether that is good or bad is yet to be seen, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how things continue to play out.
