Okay, so when you set out to write a post that looks at the Horde and Alliance conflict in Battle for Azeroth, you have to look at certain things straight on and can't dissemble or try and evade those things.
As of right now, I see two contradictory paths that patch 8.3 could take.
Spoilers for Patch 8.2 and the 'Safe Haven' cinematic in this post.
The new World of Warcraft cinematic "Safe Haven" features some great interplay and character building with Saurfang and Thrall.
Okay, wherever Thrall has been spending his time since handing over the Doomhammer and skedaddling in Legion, I think it's fair to say he has not been skipping Arm Day.
After viewing the Lost Honor cinematic at BlizzCon 2018, it was clear that Saurfang's tale was far from over -- Horde players can now follow that story forward.
This BlizzCon, our delightful Dan O'Halloran and malefic Mitch "Mitch" Mitchell sat down with Blizzard's Alex Afrasiabi (World of Warcraft's Senior Creative Director) and Patrick Dawson (Technical Director) and chatted about World of Warcraft.

During BlizzCon, Mitch and I sat down with WoW Senior Creative Director Alex Afrasiabi and Technical Director Patrick Dawson to talk about Battle for Azeroth.
Blizzard just released a new Battle for Azeroth cinematic during the opening ceremony that features the faceoff we've been waiting for.
One of the biggest problems I had with the whole let's burn Teldrassil to the ground for no good reason opening to Battle for Azeroth was not only was it a senseless act of horrible, wanton slaughter on noncombatants, it was one my Tauren was complicit in.
