Twitter and my blogroll are full of tales of disappointment. But I saw one positive tweet:
So my impression... it wasn't mindblowing but it wasn't meant to be a world event, apparently. I had low expectations because I didn't know what I was doing. I just followed Lushnek around and killed things and I didn't really understand what I was doing.
I ran to the ships and we killed the people and rigged the barrels to blow, then we talked to a goblin and then we had to kill someone on a gryphon and then we had to go and kill a tank and then we had to kill someone else and get a key from him and free a blood elf prisoner.
And at the end of it we got a shiny purple and I got a mana bomb in the mail. Everyone keeps saying how that is in bad taste, and maybe it is. But I think all of us, even the pacifists like me, are supposed to revel in the anti-alliance sentiment that is Horde.
One of the mini bosses was doing a love heart thing. I didn't get a picture of him. He was pretty cool. I thought Catwynn would find all these humans rather sexy, though her perspective of the battle (Alliance side) would be totally different.
|I snuck in to see Jaina. Wow she has a lot of health. She turned and looked at me, I think she semi spotted me. Thank god she didn't see me or I would be one dead cat.|
|Well that was the Scenario and Feat of Strength done. And then on to the cut scene...|
|Arcane bomb inc...|
|Owww, my eyes...|
Because I went in with low expectations, I don't think I was as disappointed as everyone else. I just thought it was an interesting by-scene. It doesn't really tell me much about why we are doing it, but at least now after doing it, I know what happened to Theramore - we dropped a bomb on it. Perhaps I need to go read Tides of War like everyone else to find out more about what happened.
