Funny how Blizzard forgets about Exodar, nah, Darnassus where the stuff is at.
This really so bad... While Cenarion circle, Earthen Ring and Magni "the voice of Azeroth" offer to the Horde's Warchief the opportunity to work together. She only manipulates to the Horde, please can someone in that faction remember Who is Malfurion and what he did for Azeroth. They lost so many in Legion... Sylvanas did not remember when Arthas killed her people... She is doing the same. I know she is no more that High elf, but that undead does not know what the Alliance think, she simply thinks like a member of the old Horde.
I mean, go ahead, kill him. He should have died by the hand of Xavius anyway.
She really deceived everyone in Horde with that reasoning? Is horde really that stupid to buy that?
Strike first, strike hard, no mercy.
I think it's worth noting that during previous events, the Alliance was actually hoarding Azerite in Silithus, although for different reason than Sylvanas believes (obviously, she can't know what the Alliance is or isn't thinking).And I find that the most ironic part of this is, both faction leaders' actions are out of pure mistrust for each other. Anduin doesn't trust Sylvanas to stay in peace terms and tells the Alliance to hoard as much Azerite as possible, Sylvanas notices this and starts to grow suspicious (without knowing all circumstances, the enemy faction hoarding a war-changing resource is nothing sort of alarming). Hence, BfA.

So this is all Saurfang's fault. GG.
Yay everything is happening because Sylvanas is a fear-ridden idiot! Such good characterization for the Horde's Warchief.
Given the fact Malfurion is very respected even amongst the horde (hint - Firelands, amongst many other things, like fighting side by side with Thrall against Archimonde). Also given the fact Tyrande is exactly the kind of person that would retire in a corner to mourn the loss of her husband, because that's what a person that fought against the Legion when most of the races were young, then led her people for thousands of years would do. Seems obviously Sylvanas is guided by a very solid logic in her goals to break the morale of the enemy and solidify the respect of the Horde. All hail Warchief Sylvarthas.
Slyvanas is one of the few people on Azeroth who knows peace can't truly be obtained between the factions as they are. Anduin may be willing, and several Horde leaders may be willing. But it would simply be like what Slyvanas says, posturing. She knows someone at some point will want justice for the past. the first war was barely forty years prior, plenty of folk still feel the impact of that war to this day, and it's only compounded by the second and third, as well as the conflicts we've seen in WoW. It's all still too fresh, people still want blood. Again, we might not want to, but the people do. Think of how fast the Alliance was to try and turn Garrosh's Trial into one against the Horde. The older leaders, like Genn, and especially the immortals like Tyrande, are never going to forgive the Horde, ever. Slyvanas is the only one who knows war is inevitable in the Factions current states, this is why shes quelling hope of peace, that hope will lead to someone doing something stupid, which will ultimately only end up prolonging the conflict, no matter how compassionate or well intention-ed the action may be. And it's the same reason why she willing to plunge her sisters into servitude. They are two extremely powerful figures commanding two major groups who support the Alliance, and she knows she is going to have to face them at some point, and she knows the only choice that will best serve the Horde will be to kill them, and then bring them into the Horde. She knows she can't avoid it because war will come, be it now where the Horde can take the advantage and be the ones who will decide their own fate in the end, or five years from now, maybe ten, maybe even 20 or 30, but it will come, and it might not come when the Horde can win. Right now, with Azerite, and with their new allies, the Horde Might be able to win against the one other major superpower in the World, the Alliance.Now we all know as players another faction war is inevitable, literally whenever we aren't at war, we all know we will again at some point. So it's easy to say her reasoning is shoddy writing on Blizzards part for forcing a war, but it's know because it's easy enough to point out the grudges and prejudices still held on both factions. The Alliance populace still sees the majority of the Horde races as savages or monsters. And the Horde, still see the Alliance as weak, and petty. There are too many current ideological differences between them that peace right now cannot be everlasting.Then there is also the geopolitical side of things with land. The Alliance likely still feels strongly that they have a right to Northern Regions of the Eastern Kingdoms. The Gilneans want their city back, there are likely plenty of ex-lordaeronians who would love to reclaim their old home, and there are the High Elves who will likely want to reclaim Silvermoon and attempt to bring their people back into the Alliance.In Kalimdor there is still the issue of Ashenvale and wood. The Night elves will never surrender their woods to the Horde, and the orcs will always need a steady supply of wood, even outside of war.Slyvanas is being as aggressive as she is because she knows everyone outside of the Horde -#$%^ing hates them- and that it'll only be matter of time before another fight breaks out. And the reason she is being so shady about it all is because she's going against one of the most united, and powerful factions on the planet, and can't afford to play fair. It's that line between the Horde and the Alliance where both are heroic in their own ways, where one is doing what they can to survive in a world that wants them all dead, and the other stands valiantly for their ideals. It just happens these two factions are constantly at odds due to ideals, circumstance, and all the other %^&* that makes politics complicated. Its Survival vs. Valor.
