Last night was exciting on several levels.
First, as a long time WoW player seeing this kind of shake up occur was everything I hoped it'd be. There was both the expected an unexpected. You can go see it for yourself and read the two lore articles published today for wonderful perspective on it. The entire event was just epic.
Second, as a long time reporter of WoW news, the interest in what happened was larger than any non-BlizzCon event I've ever seen. I know that WoW has lost a lot of subscribers, but you couldn't tell from the reveal article.
Third, there was something that happened that took an odd turn. Someone did something that people were not expecting -- yet it oddly fit. That's some awesome story telling.
Finally, and for me the coolest thing out of all, was the fact that there was no leaks about who the new Warchief was going to be. No one knew it, and anyone that did kept it to themselves. In my position I hear a lot of WoW stuff, just about everything I think -- and while there were rumors and unsubstantiated claims, no one came forward with any serious leak about this. Blizzard kept this a secret, and they did it better than any other major multinational company has ever been able to.
So finally I can answer a question. Spoilers abound in today's Queue comments, but not in the Queue itself. I promise.
Who's the next Warchief?
