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.



You realize that I can pop wowpedia open and poke this full of holes right? I won't tho. I just hope you realize that I can. 

Instead I'm going to argue something else because everyone is free to hate and love whomsoever they want because taste is a matter of personal taste, unlike the phenomena of the collective thinking (ultimately. Don't judge me.).


It takes passion to conceive a great story. It is not even related to creativity or any types of skill, or even imagination. If you think about a dude that you like, for whatever reason, be it because he's righteous, powerful or even if he is like Deadpool or some Marvel/DC CLone (God forbid), then you can liberally steal from that character to build a copy of him in your head. And if you really like him you've the primordial, proto world of a special novel like headspace that you've created for yourself. 


Now.. WRITING all of that shit down is an entirely different thing. 


"Deadpool got out of the cave and did shit" vs "Count Doge Mcmeem emerged from the twilight of the grotto and began to wearily make his way towards Washington in pursuit of his prize - The Golden Stick of Obama " 


(Dont judge me, Doge was a thing last time I opened the meme site. )



I guess that I could have said "Imagination is easy, writing is hard" buuut.... I'd much rather just rant about things on the forums. 




Edit: Also Christie Golden pretty bad am I rite? Ey? Eeey? :)

i thought about this but i think you cant really blame christie golden for the calia thing


imagine this: do you really think blizzard lets a contracted writer make up lore on the spot? especially when it comes to something as impactful as calia being undead? i doubt it


i'm definitely sure blizzard gave christie a story outline and told her to write a novel, and one of the points was that calia would die and be resurrected as a holy undead in some way, shape or form with the characters present
