    i would like to know your opinoins on why the lore is so bad and what things have been messed up since WoW.

    recently i have realised something, the lore isnt messed up at all. you have to imagine that you are the only player in WoW and that when you do a quest it has never been done before, you have to imagine that when you kill an enemy, you are the only person killing it. you have to imagine that you are a character that has grown stronger and become a hero in wow, just like illadin or arthas and that you are not one of a million other players, but that you are the new hero of the alliance/horde. the way i see it, WC4 will probably let you import your WoW characters looks and carry on the story, because there is a story to it all, even fighting illadin, look on the WoW web site, its quite good. eventually you realise that the lore is just fine, you just gotta have some imagination :p

    Lore has been twisted into a corruopted form of itself to serve a grand purpose into an MMO?

    GST is on the right track, but I disagree with the whole idea that you are the only one playing. You have to team up with other Heroes that have become strong (from playing WoW far too much) to take down people like Illidan. The only problem with the Lore to me, is all WoW does to advance the story is kill another famous person, and add a small story line.

    The title is a misnomer. This isn't about lore at all. You just reiterated how storylines in MMOs work.

    yeh, but its the same with storylines in all games, just because you are playing through wc3 as arthas doesnt mean that someone else with the game cant play through as arthas. the thing im trying to say is that the story does make sense, you have to imagine that you are a normal person that has grown strong into a hero etc etc.... its just like in single player games where you can custoise your character, its just like oblivion, but with lots of other people at the same time.

    No, they just kill off villains in WoW. That's not a very decent lore.

    lore is broken after wc3 because they changed it to make it conform to WoW, which isn't even that good anywayt.

    prime example:blood elves. wc3 blood elf campaign clearly states that all the blood elves left or were killed. WoW "blood elves" are normal high elves. how many times does this need to be said.

    WoW's lore isn't bad...it's Burning Crusade that is just horrible. I dunno if they're trying to distance themselves from Warhammer and LotR, but they messed it up bad. The whole feel of the world changed...ughabughaboo.

    Again, you are reiterating the purpose of a roleplaying game, which is, in fact, roleplaying, which, in fact, has nothing to do with why most people hate WoW.

    Know what would be cool. To be a GM and play as Arthas in WoW and attack capitals!

    i dont think most people hate wow...most people wouldnt know what it was.

    anyways i can reiterate what i want, because i can be happy playing wow and not be angry at everything like you.

    have some imagination, you are a hero now, win the games against illadin and co...i dont understand why people find it so offensive to fight illadin...

    anyways, none of you apart from Kjiverx has explained why the lore is bad, or why fighting illadin as your custom player instead of as arthas is such a problem.

    Over 8 million (that's over nine thousand) people play it. I know plenty of people who know what it is. I think it can be safe to assume that many, if not most, people know what it is. Either way, if you want to nitpick words, I'll be happy to add "here".
    A little ignorant, are we? I've never said I had anything against WoW's lore. You just assumed that because I was pointing out your logical fallacy. Learn to see colors and not just black and white. Also, the "Say what you want, I'll do what I want" statement is getting a little old in about, say, all the posts you've made in reply to me pointing something out. A little color in your creativity won't hurt. I enjoy many things. I have a healthy habit of criticizing many things. If you try not to act like an angsty teen every time what I criticize connects to you, everything works out better.
