A Song of Fiery War Axe & Ice Breaker #19


“That’s it! I’m done with Blizzard!”

Garrosh slammed his fist on the table in anger. His breath was short and his nostrils flared. Thrall sat next to him with a concerned expression, trying to temper his companion’s fury as they were both watching Blizzcon.

“Garrosh, relax! They only showed a glimpse of what’s to come. We don’t have all of the information…”

“Silence!” Garrosh slammed his fist yet again on the table. The impact was louder, and table nearly jumped up from the floor as a result of the concussion.

“This is a disgrace, an utter disgrace! I bought a virtual ticket for this?” He gestured towards the screen while glancing at Thrall to his right “THIS?!”

“But Garrosh…” Thrall spoke up again “What if there’s more coming that they can’t tell us about now? I think we have to wait and see before jumping into conclusions.”

Garrosh shook his head, huffing in frustration.

“I’ve known Blizzard long enough to tell that we’re being played” he replied “I will not stand by and watch this circus! It’s time to take action, Thrall“.

Thrall’s eyes widened as his head tilted away in surprise.

“You don’t mean…”

“Yes. It’s time to downvote their trailers on YouTube”.

Sweat drops began to appear on Thrall’s forehead. He gulped before speaking again.

“Think about this rationally, Garrosh. We don’t want to completely alienate Blizzard just because of one announcement. If we maintain a good relationship with them, they will be more likely to listen to our feedback…”

“IT’S DIABLO ON MOBILE, THRALL!” Garrosh screamed in fury, interrupting Thrall yet again before beginning a rant.

“Years we’ve waited for new Diablo content. YEARS! It could have been Diablo 2 Remastered, a Diablo 3 expansion or Diablo 4. ANYTHING would have been better than this. NOTHING would have been better than this!” he paused for a moment as he presented his hands to Thrall “Look at my fingers, Thrall. Do they look like fingers that can play a freaking mobile game?”

Thrall looked down in sadness. He could not find the words to reply. He remembered all the hours he spent playing Diablo titles: The ominous atmosphere of Diablo 1, the horrific bosses of Diablo 2 and the tragic events of Diablo 3. He began envisioning a new, family friendly, mobile Diablo game, riddled with micro-transactions. His sadness slowly turned into anger. His anger turned into determination.

He finally looked up to Garrosh, staring directly into his eyes, nodding.

“Do it”.
