Thrall, Thalyssra, and Lor'themar as the sitting council, please!
We all know something will happen that makes the factions fight again and the need for a warchief arises, all in the name of the one true god in Warcraft: Status Quo.And Thalyssra: you're at least 10k years old, no matter how old Lor'themar is anything you do can be considered pedophilia.
Not happy with this at all. One of the key tenets of being Horde is the presence of a Warchief. As expected, all the peacenicks are celebrating with giddy delight. The rest of us, and I believe the majority of us, think this is an abominable decision.Blizzard has really screwed the pooch on multiple fronts this expansion in terms of story. Character assassination, race assassination, faction assassination and, funny as it is, nearly all of it is Horde side. Horde favoritism my keester.
Blizzard make Rokhan mention Zandalari! Don't let him forget about Talanji and Rastakhan! Don't make him amnesiac!
It is a system that is hyper flawed, Blizzard better put an odd number of people on the Council, otherwise I can't see it ever working. Let's say the Council is, Tauren, Blood Elf, Orc and Trolls, just as an example. What happens if they have a 2v2 split on what to do? How many days/weeks/months of debating would they have to do before they realise, that there are fundamental differences in opinion that cannot be rectified, and so they get stuck at an impasse?Having a Council have a say in what happens in the Horde is great, even perhaps needing the Council's permission to go to war would be a good idea, but you need a singular leader at the top of it all to direct and lead when there isn't time for debating. There should still be a Warchief like figure, even if they discard the name, for "High Chieftain" or something less warlike. Someone who can break deadlocks in the Council, and when there is a crisis can step up and lead the faction, with decisive action.The Council can even be the ones to decide who is the new leader, and to avoid a Garriosh/Sylvanas situation happening again, the Council can have the power to remove that figure if they deem them as unfitting for the role.Of course if none of this ever happens, then the Council serves no narrative purpose, because the writers will just ignore it and make the Horde do what they need to them to do for plot reasons, which is just incredibly weak story telling.
