What I wonder is how much of the motives we can actually ascribe to the Old Gods. Sure Yog has been corrupting things, and he's been manipulating events, but how much of it is some desire to escape imprisonment? The elementals are a good example, I guess, since they didn't exactly turn peaceful when the Old Gods went sleepytime.Maybe the Old Gods came to Azeroth, here to live, spreading chaos with their touch, not some Grand Plan. Sure they beat down the Elemental Lords, and used them in their war against the titans, but that doesn't mean they wanted to destroy anything. The same with the Qiraji, what did they do that was so horrible before Cthun got imprisoned? The Curse of Flesh, I always took as a side effect of exposure to Yog's Chaos, not some device that It created to sow discord.As said in last articles comments, Old Gods= Chaos, there doesn't need to be this "grand plan" that seems to get assigned to their actions. Some of it could simply be side-effects of their presence.And, while the Titan's are obviously powerful, I always got the impression that they were more the "lets group up on this guy!" types, so losing a one-on-one isn't hard to believe.
