Hello RPH!

 

So with the recent developments in the warcraft lore with Calia Menethil being raised as a half undead and becoming Aurylon Halfdead 2.0, I wanted to ask you guys, over the course of the progression and growth of the warcraft storyline, which writer at blizzard HQ has been the worst, which is why I have devised this fun little poll for you all to vote on which writer has been the most awful, be sure to cast your vote for all to see.

 

Note #1: This post is not to imply these writers are terrible people, but to judge their quality of work on the warcraft lore and universe, please do not use this post as a means to attack but as a means to give constructive criticism and help them improve.

 

Note #2: I will update the poll to include more writers if I missed any, please let me know down below if I have missed anyone.

This does not just cover that tl;dr my dear, it also covers the many things that these authors have done over the entire course of the warcraft story, it judges everything they have written, not just that book, and let me tell you, there have been many story mistakes in the warcraft lore over it's entire lifespan.

 

Please think and read before you post.

The worst. This is gotta be the post of some butthurt person that goes "muh lore" every five seconds.
Also, Richard Knaak and Metzen on the list? Dafuk? For the worst? Really? Lmao kid.

This "I judge you" post has no weight at all.  You say that this post is to give "Constructive Criticism" but the whole premise of the post is to attack something. Like, decide even if you are going to give constructive criticism or attack something that "me no likes, yarr me sees something that i haven't even read completely grrr". Like, even if its constructive criticism. Constructive criticism to who? I am fairly sure no Blizzard writer roams about RPH. YOu better post this over the retail forums or twitter bud. And then decide if its to either give constructive criticism or attack.

speaking of thinking before you post; justifying this post by saying it promotes constructive criticism when such criticism will very unlikely ever reach the writers isn't justifying it at all. this is a poorly masked shitpost. go back to your tobuscus youtube humour you decaying elderberry

Metzen IS, in fact, quite bad. Back in my day (in the time of the primordial geological epics of the planet Earth) there was a meme floating around with a pile of cocaine and a sign under it saying "SO MUCH METZEN". You can tell how he is on drugs every time you see his face. But yeah, I'll just say, think about how bad a character Thrall is. And how stupid it was for him to just, you know, give away the horde like a KFC discount coupon to this person that was a) Always fucking there but WE never saw him and b ) is totally batshit insane, but nobody knew cus his dad that died 20y ago was a war hero.

 

Also OP, you prolly know all this but ignore the shitposters.

That's like, a small portion of the overall Warcraft universe he, and others, created. Even if you account parts of the cataclysm xpac, its still a small portion. Like what? I'm not expecting everything to be a flawless and perfect thing, that's stupid. That's just being over-critical. Also, Thrall became bad in Cataclysm. Before? Dude was ok. Just because there was some questionable things in Cata and you were part of the group that just nitpicked on Cata lore choices, it doesn't mean that Metzen's work on its entirety is bad. Because Metzen IS, in fact, quite decent.

Like, this type of debates all, ultimately, fall in "We agree to disagree" type of thing. As it is overall dominated by each one's opinion. Like yeah, elements can be overall considered a bad implementation. But an overall work or an overall thing is up to opinion and personal interpretation. Which means that debating off of it goes nowhere. Some people are just chill, little critically inclined and others jump on everything with a very critical and sometimes over-critical mindset.

I've been waiting so long for Calia to make a comeback since I read the short story in the Horde's player guide in which she is freed from the Undercity. Then comes Legion "it's just Calia now" and she sits in the Priest Order Hall doing nothing, far far away from her home and I really thought what a waste of character that was.

 

Thankfully in the unrealeased, but almost entirely leaked new novel, she actually does something for Lordaeron and her people, but oh no she is killed and later becomes an undead...lightforged...light undead? Seriously thought nothing could top the Lightforged Nathrezim. Also, Sylvanas acting like a femminist saying that the Horde has been rubbish thus far because it was led by men, finally a leader who grasped the true issue of the horde; toxic masculinity.

 

Aside from the horrible plot of this whole mess and characters being inconsistent and out of their character, I actually enjoy Golden's writing style.

Honestly it is hard to pick because a lot of them have been pretty damn awful, Knaak for destroying the night elves culture and way of acting in the war of the ancients novel and golden for making some outright stupid decisions in the story and things in the lore which don't fit in warcraft whatsoever, you can also thank her a lot for plenty of the shit in chronicles, which I choose to ignore half the time anyway. I guess metzen has been pretty bad too for screwing up thrall during cata but what he did still seems minuscule compared to what knaak and golden have done.

I actually hate Richard A. Knaak more than I hate christie golden, even though golden's writing is crap it is still beaten by the shittiness of Knaak's writing from the war of the ancients novel, I mean the night elves might as well be humans in that since they do not act like night elves whatsoever.

 

It just so happens more people voted for golden over the others.
