I find it a bit weird how it's fine to murder an entire city and plague all inhabitants of Stratholme and then burn them all to the ground; but letting a ghost girl battle with an easterbunny is absolutely NOT DONE.

Politically correct, blizz succumbed a decade ago.  This is not the WoW we used to play. :/

In which WoW you could kill children?

So far I can't think of any time they showed anywhere, ever, non-beastly children getting killed, nor zombie children, or any sort of undead children besides ghosts.

Prove me if I'm wrong, but the thing since ever and thus far has been, you can do "whatever you want" to whoever you want, but children (unless they creatures such as murlocs or gnolls).

I don't know what you're quoting me for; I never said you could. I don't think the other guy said either.

Well, the other guy said blizzard sucumbed to being politically correct and that's why we don't make children fight creatures. That would mean previously we could see that.

Your quote, well, accident.

Fair enough. The real reason Blizzard doesn't allow children to fight is because this would make it a 18+ game as by ESRP (US) and PEGI (EU) rating. So this is a very good and fair reason, because the younger people are allowed to play the game, the larger the playerbase, and thus money.

 

As for the other politically correct stuff... I'd rather not get into that on a forum that's about entertainment and fun.

 

 

Edit: I'm merely criticizing the ESRP and PEGI systems, not Blizzard themselves. ESRP and PEGI think it's fine to burn down towns and have people mass murder eachother for ages 13 and higher, but as soon as a child has to go into a fight it's an immediate 18+ (adult) rating. They're mean!

Looking at it from that angle... yes, PEGI ratings are mean xD

There are certain things that make it instantly a certain rating, regardless of what else is in the game. It's a really weird system. One tiny scene can turn a game into an 18, despite the rest of the game being below a 12.

      Embers of War is a new cinematic released by Blizzard to go with Battle for Azeroth. It's a combination of all cinematics previewed so far including Bwonsamdi, Jaina's return to Kul Tiras, the Horde intro to Zandalar, and the final Battle for Lordaeron cutscene.
      Lines have been drawn between the Horde and Alliance, loyalties tested, and the war between the factions has begun in earnest. The race is on to recruit new allies and gather a new powerful resource – Azerite. Will you heed the call of battle?

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."

      We have the inaugural hotfixes of Battle for Azeroth! We have a whole lot of quest fixes, including the inability to start second or third War Campaign Footholds, as well as mounts and dungeons getting a look.
      August 14 (source)
      Dungeons
      Temple of Sethraliss Fixed a bug that caused Avatar of Sethraliss to sometimes become inactive. Mounts
      Captured Dune Scavenger is now usable by both Horde and Alliance characters. Chewed-On Reins of the Terrified Pack Mule is now learnable and usable by Alliance characters. Quests
      The Nazmir quest "Poisoning the Brood" will now share credit to party members. The Targets for "A Wall of Iron" will now respawn more frequently. Players that were in the vicinity of, but did not get credit for killing Vilank'dor, will once again be able to complete the quest "To Sacrifice a Loa". Fixed an issue where too many enemies were participating in "Mojambo". Players should now be able to advance and complete "Devour Humanoid". “Adapting Our Tactics” can now be abandoned and re-accepted after selecting an upgrade to pursue Players who disconnect during “Rodrigo's Revenge” can now continue the quest. “The Last Witch Doctor of Krag'wa” will no longer talk to nearby players who are not on the quest. Crawgs in "Great Brewfest Kodo" will now respawn more frequently. Adjusted the range of the Seaforium Smoke Grenade on “Boom goes the Bomb” so that it can better go boom. Interacting with the Mysterious Brew during "Enforcing Fate" should now reliably grant credit.

Players who had previously been stuck in this state may now interact with the scouting map near Halford or Nathanos to choose a Foothold. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes
