Battle for Azeroth has had a pretty rough start in terms of story and lore, as at the very least it has divided players, and not quite the way Blizzard wanted, aka along faction lines. There's been countless forum and reddit posts talking about Sylvanas' war crimes, Saurfang's inconsistent decisions, as well as a whole lot of other story and character details that players feel haven't been they way they expected and wanted.

This Thursday we might get some answers and perhaps reassurance as we get a story and lore livestream. While we all know Terran Gregory, Steve Danuser worked on quest and story content in Legion and is now the Senior Narrative Designer in BfA.

They should just give up on the "live" part, these streams are all just scripted with selected questions.

Ion won't even be on this one, why won't people read the posts before commenting 😄

"We know our lore up to now is contradictory, nonsensical and unintentionally hilarious.     Tyrande believing that Sparing Saurfang had anything to do with Teldrassil burning.    The Vindicar and draneii in general sitting the war out because reasons.    Rexxar joining the war because "Jaina killed to many".     Night Elves who watched Sylvannas make a sudden offensive against their homeland, watched her slaughter her way to their sacred tree, then burn it down with their children screaming in a fit of temper because one of them cried for her...but they'll join Sylvannas anyway after resurrection because Tyrande and Elune weren't there to save them from Sylvannas."

 

"But don't worry!   It it will ALL come together, and make perfect story sense!"    (whisper) " ....Soon™"

Last time I checked the Vindicar is the main reason the Alliance can acquire Lightforged Draenei reinforcements, so it ain't really sitting out anything. It just wouldn't make sense to make a space-ship a decisive force of war - space-ships are for space-travel, not close combat. Even on Argus the biggest firepower the Vindicar had was a focusing laser that is probably considered obsolete to azerite-infused weapons (or just wouldn't work as well against mortal targets as it works on demons).

We can also question the fact that Teldrassil... really shouldn't have burned the way it did? They launched fire at the outside of a LIVING tree, surrounded by ocean. And Darnassus isn't even right beside where was hit... How did the fire spread to Darnassus so fast that people couldn't evacuate with mage portals? Like just getting through the tree would take a fair amount of time, let alone getting to the city itself

Nope, Polygon did an interview with the devs about the story, and they said the vindicar exists still but they wanted to focus on other aspects of the story so didn't include it.    That's literally their entire reasoning.
