World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth review: The world is enough

Macworld - Tue, 08/28/2018 - 06:35

In our age of divisiveness, World of Warcraft's Battle for Azeroth expansion begins with a premise that cuts deep. It's nasty stuff. Greed (and quite a bit of petty hate) led the Horde to burn the Night Elves' tree city a few weeks before launch, potentially killing thousands. The Alliance sought revenge, leading to an assault on its old capital of Lordaeron. And all because a godlike figure thrust his gigantic sword into Azeroth itself, causing a powerful new substance called Azerite to erupt from its core through fissures and even small volcanoes, spread over the entire world.

At a time when everyone should have been working together, suddenly everyone was at each other’s throats. Considering what the world had just gone through, the conflict seemed unnecessary. It was all a little too on-the-nose, leading some longtime Horde players to question the integrity of the Horde. Some claimed they wouldn't even play the expansion.
