Garrosh is not well-liked

There are some possible lore spoilers in this one, so we're pushing it after the break. If you're not worried about hearing some crazy future lore and enjoy a good laugh at the son of Grom Hellscream, read on.

There's been some speculation lately that Thrall might be moving on to take the mantle of the Guardian of Tirisfal, and that Garrosh Hellscream will instead be given the title of Warchief of the Horde (speculation that's hinted at by Blizzard as well). But players aren't necessarily happy with that -- while the ingame NPCs of the Horde are bloodthirsty enough to put Garrosh in as their leader, players don't think his decisions in the past have necessarily been the best. In fact, Vacant on Eldre'thelas has compiled a list of 50 better Warchiefs than Garrosh, and from #5 (Hogger) to #42 ("The login dragon"), it's one of the funniest things we've read on the forums in a while, not to mention a who's who of pretty meaningless NPCs. When you think that "Sickly Gazelle" would be a better Horde leader than Garrosh, you know that faction's in trouble.

For the benefit of those of you at work and unable to access the forums, we've reprinted the top 50 list below (though be sure to head over to the forums to see the additions). "Basic Campfire" -- hilarious!
