  1. I could go for that, too, if the new rumor swirling around happens to be true. Alternatively, that Starcraft 2 mod they’ve been working on forever.

  2. “Do you think it will work?”

    Oh hell yes. Umm…what’s the storyline?

    “Awww, I was sure you were going to say your wish was for a new series called BelfCraft…”

    THERE’S the storyline!! 😀 Seriously, I’d love a Warcraft game that just focused on the High/Blood Elves. You could make a hell of a game that focused on Lor’themar’s continued efforts to rebuild Quel’thelas, especially with Alleria’s return in Legion.

    Better still: Back to the…er, Past, not future. Start with the expulsion of the future Helves from Night Elf land and their perilous journey across the sea, the founding of Quel’Thalas under the rule of Anisterian Sunstrider, the first High Elf King, culminating with the alliance with the old Arathor Empire and the subsequent defeat of the Amani trolls, securing peace and prosperity for Quel’Thalas into the future.

    When you think about it, the Warcraft universe is like DC or Marvel Comics: there are tons of great characters and millions of great stories to be told. DC and Marvel have shown a willingness to branch out into their more obscure properties with things like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad. It’d be great if Bliz followed suit.

  3. Whoops!!

    “… the founding of Quel’Thalas under the rule of Anisterian Sunstrider…”

    That should, of course, read “… the founding of Quel’Thalas under the rule of Dath’Remar Sunstrider…”

    And now, the nostalgics. Being a belf-o-phile, my favorite /charge battle cry in the game is, of course, “FOR ANASTERIAN!!” Sylvanas suffered even worse of course, but if there’s one (surviving) kingdom who deserved the vengeance we got on Arthas, it’s the belfs. It always gave me great satisfaction for my toon to yell that every time we began combat with Arthas in ICC.

  4. Finally, and now I’m really overthinking things, how great would it be, if it were possible, for Bliz to fill the gaps between WoW xpac releases with Warcraft xpac releases? You release a new xpac for each franchise every two years, alternating years between the two. So Legion gets released in 2016, making WoW releases each even year, then Warcraft releases each odd year. The Warcraft xpacs can fill in the gaps lore-wise, we get some variety of gameplay, each game team has plenty of time to make sure it’s releasing a good, finished product, gaps between the last raid tier of each WoW xpac and the first raid tier of the next are filled with new Warcraft content…everybody wins! 😀

  5. Dahakha and Tom – Oooh you guys know exactly what type of thing I like! Tom, I believe you need to work for Blizzard. Like, I want you in charge, right now :)

    Erik – I’m definitely okay with WC3 HD too 😀

  6. Chris Metzen’s reign of tyrannical orcophilia shall finally come to an end, and we shall all walk in the sun once again.

    Anar’alah belore.
