Actually, Vol’jin, I didn’t. I’m just going where the railroad takes me, here.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not helping against my will - I’ve been waiting two and a half years for something like this - but at no point here, just like with our last change of Warchief, was I given a choice. So let’s not pretend I was, all right?
I imagine this is for pro-Garrosh players as great chunks of Cataclysm were for me: I spent a good part of that expansion wishing I’d been allowed to register my disapproval of the state of affairs in any small way. Just one insignificant little quest that would have no bearing on how the story progressed, like maybe being sent to deal with a dissenter and having the choice between killing them or telling them I agree and letting them go. Feeling like you’re not allowed to have an opinion in-game kills immersion.
I understand making two different questlines for Escalation would have been a lot of extra work (and made the Alliance more jeaous than they probably already are, considering how this patch is focusing on Horde’s problems), but being able to actually choose a side would have made it feel more meaningful for even those of us who would’ve gone with the rebellion either way.
