(some argue because of orcish treachery; others credit Doomhammer's might)I just want to say that no matter how much Blizzard tries to rewrite Horde history, no matter how much they retcon things, no matter how hard they try to force the idea down our throats, I will never, -never- accept the attempt to paint Lothar's fall as the result of some kind of honor duel or a fight with Doomhammer.I remember playing Warcraft 2, and I remember starting the Blackrock Spire mission only to watch Anduin Lothar and his coterie of knights being buried under a swarm of Blackrock grunts. None of this "oh, they met but there was teachery involved."None of this "oh they had a fight but Orgrim staged things somehow."And CERTAINLY none of this "yeah, Orgrim killed him. Straight up."No. That's bullshit of the highest order, and I refuse to accept it. Turalyon was a big damn hero who beat the snot out of a ruthless killer who could only bring down a man like Lother by throwing soldiers at him until he succumbed.That's how I saw it happen, and that's always what it's gonna be. Blizzard can go take a flying leap if they want to rewrite that.
