Disclaimer: This is not about Mekkatorque*.
Garrosh is imminent! Back when he was announced, there were grumblings on Twitter from people saying “Oh no, not another orc. Enough orcs already!” It is something that I myself was guilty of. There were also other voices, people who had been waiting on Garrosh for a LONG time.
The list below is from a video that was put up in 2011. Now, if you are a player that is really excited about any of the names circled in red, you’ve been waiting for 6 years for the hero they teased to be released. That sucks. It would have been far better if none of these heroes had been teased. Each one being a complete surprise.
Every hero announcement, no matter how cool it is, is immediately deflated by the fact that it’s not the one hero you wanted. And while that’s a natural part of the cycle for Heroes of the Storm. It extra sucks when they’ve teased the hero you want and they never seem to come.
It’s weird because when a hero from a franchise I don’t play get’s announced I’m indifferent, but when a hero from ‘my’ game gets released, that is when I get disappointed. I know it’s a game, and more heroes are always coming. I love HotS and enjoy playing it with the characters that are there, (Leper Chromie FTW).
Oh well, the genie is out of the bottle now. I need to go update the list now. Put a Check mark on Garrosh and I guess on Ghost Kerrigan as well?
*Mekkatorque is in the category of heroes I am discussing, but the reasoning applies to all of them.
