I certainly think that is a fair criticism. His/their enthusiasm can certainly seem like blind loyalty to the brand when things are at their worst. I dropped off for a while as soon as my guild killed Heroic G'huun in October 2018 primarily because the game was in a pretty bad state and at that time. Eventually though I kept watching their videos and saw that things were improving and came back in time to help my guild finish up Heroic BoD and stayed subbed until a few weeks after we finished up Heroic EP since I wanted to play some other games. I dunno, I just like how genuinely excited they get about WoW. It makes me want to play and see the game through the same lens that they do. Certainly not for everyone though.My biggest issue with them is what Ano mentioned earlier. During 8.0 and 8.1 (and I'm paraphrasing here) they were very dismissive of the playerbase's issues with BFA and how it was proceeding at the time. Essentially telling the players they were overreacting and it "wasn't that bad" and it came off super boot lick-y and I guess it worked considering their new hosting duties.
Where there is smoke there is fire, and I think we have enough things coming together that pretty much make it likely that is what the next xpac is going to be.
There's definitely a lot of stuff leading us towards some kind of overall "Death" theme for the next expansion, but I'm still not entirely buying it being Northrend 2.0.
I don't think it has to necessarily be something based in Northrend to still be considered a "Lich King" expansion. I think Bolvar will be a major plot point and figure in the story they have coming but it doesn't have to be in Northrend, in fact I hope it has nothing to do with Northrend I don't really need to go back there.
do we need another thread for "FUCK BLIZZ FREE HK" stuff?
There's already a thread about the original incarnation of that leak (with the merch prices attached).
Well, that's going to happen no matter what and there's going to be a lot of it this coming weekend (not unwarranted, mind you).
Ah. Nevermind then.
There's plenty of reason to be angry and people are justified in it. However, there's threads for that specifically already and I feel that clogging up the new threads/OTs whatever with drive by posting does nothing to help the situation and derails what the threads were originally made for.
They should walk out onstage and be like "We know you guys are upset, but we planned for this" then a big prop frozen throne with "In case of emergency" gets rolled out and they break it open for the trailer to play
"We said she wouldn't be Garrosh 2.0. We never said anything about Arthas 2.0"
