#1 - 2011/10/23 06:14:00 PMLook, I get that most Blizzard employees are hardcore horde fans. And I get I have to live with the constant favoritism by the developers and the over the top 'For The Horde' cries everywhere you look at Blizzcon. But when Samwise (don't get me wrong, I love the man's art.. but right now he is on my feces list) brought out that piece of filth from Cannibal Corpse and he was constantly like 'F' the Alliance throughout the video package and onstage, I found that offensive and rude. I get you want the factionalism, but lets face it, you have been going way to far with the favoritism (and that is probably why Metzen was forced to wear the Alliance hoodie, because of the issues with the battlecry from last year, which we alliance are still waiting for you to fix... we pay your salaries as well as the horde players do) and the racor and vile especially on the horde side is growing too much. I have been in my Alliance shirt in the parking lot of Walmart (just this past summer) and had some guy get in my face and tell me Alliance s*cks b*lls and scream For the Horde.
Just throwing this out there, but maybe one of the reasons you are hemorrhaging subscriptions (if that is true) is the fact that people are tired of you always favoring one side over the other (Alliance hasn't been truly dominant since WCII.. wait, isn't that the time Metzen took over as creative director? Hmmm...) and many of the developers and other blizzard staff are very vocal about it?
Long story short, I want an apology from Blizzard and from Samwise for the rudeness at the concert and that you start to tone down your obvious favoritism immediately. Don't give me the standard line of 'its coming, wait for it'. This last expansion is especially bad (thrall in our faces, Azshara a horde symbol, developers spending all their time on the goblins, that the worgen starting lore is incomplete and if you want to see the rest of the story, then you have to roll a forsaken... I could go on, but you know all the examples).
