This post supposed to be ironic? Horde gets salty over burning of tree. Saurfang is sad the tree is ashes. Nothing in the situation has changed but apparently everyone feels better about it now. Horde gets an appreciation post to reinforce the "feel good" mood? Seems like coddling.
place your bets Zekhan is gonna be put in game but will he be an obscure cameo like Vol'jin's human friend or a full on character with quest involvement
What a dumb character.Doesn't even get what he's fighting for, a despicable faction that commits all kinds of atrocities and still play at being honored.But the Alliance will be the bad guy if that dumb troll dies, right?Can't say he isn't asking for it if he dies.But it's interesting how context mean nothing in the face of memes. lol
"A troll named Hekazi that died in the third war"So his dady died in the third war but was still alive to tell him stories?That dosn't make sense...
I really liked 'Old Soldier'. Took me back to my Horde days just a bit. You can see the contrast between Zekhan and Saurfang when Zek asks 'how many?'. He means how many Alliance troops. But when Saurfang says 'too many', he's clearly thinking about how many died at Teldrassil...It also fleshes out his appearance in the Siege cinematic, makes it easier to read him as more than just 'troll casts earthquake', but as 'young guy bolstered and inspired by seeing Saurfang charge'. "Ya mon! We still be in this!"
HIGHLY enjoyed the cinematic! Though, I'm not crazy about the "Zappy Boi" nickname given, he was definitely a much needed inspiration to the Horde. As someone who plays most classes on both factions' sides, it was refreshing to see Zekhan's naive excitement and nervousness, as well as his devotion and loyalty to the Old Horde handed down by his father. Saurfang's reaction is one that comes natural with age and experience (hence the title of the cinematic, "Old Soldier"). Saurfang's past experience with war and several Warchiefs he had served lay now before him in order to compare his current service to Sylvannas. And there is a very interesting story/plot connection this is all leading up to between this cinematic and the prior one with Sylvannas burning the tree, as both reference what happened leading up to and during both the Battle for Angrathar the Wrathgate and The Battle for the Undercity that followed shortly after. Saurfang lost his son, and Sylvannas was almost killed again (thanks to the traitor Varimathras). Both of those battles resulted from Legion invasion Darklords back then as well. So the story-line seems to be somewhat repeating itself with those who experienced it in the first round, and now including new, evolved members of both factions.Personally, I am looking forward to how Blizzard will tie in history to the present day events in-game. I'm absolutely loving the plot-twists!
Horde favouritism? no no, blizz hates horde, they lose warchiefs right? they dont make horde only cinematics at all :))
Really love it the way wowhead writers couldn't stay neutral and portraying Sylvanas as blatant evil.
