        Does that even hold up? You are supposed to grab a shield firmly to withstand an attack, and also being able to move it freely to cover most if your vitals from almost all directions.
        That looks like it only covers that side and it will break easily.
        I'm actually more muffled about that shield than the whole diversity checklist deal.

          Well they animated it like this. Apparently the idea they're going for is that the clip is able to move freely around the shoulder-pad, allowing it to do this.

            Why not just have a gnome make a prosthetic?

            It doesn't matter. Some c**t offers to make her a prosthetic (something that is pretty common in the game's lore) but she refuses because "she's used to it". She even asks her to make her some shock absorber so that it doesn't hurt her shoulder as much when she's taking hits. No, it wouldn't make sense to spread the impact force all over a mechanical arm, she's a big strong beautuful nigra, she can du everything with her shoulder clamp.

            Not necessarily, what often happens is a middle manager calls in the consultancy firm because merely hiring them will increase the company's ESG score. These consultants meet with the game staff, make their demands, and then openly threaten how they've got friends in journalism who can and will dox them to make sure the game developers lose their job, much less get another one in the industry. While many game dev teams have cultists like the ones you're likely referring to, there are still men in these industries who stay quiet about things because they have families that need their dad working.

            That said, I also agree. Frick 'em. Forcing out those honest devs and pushing them into indie studios is the best thing for the industry.

      Exactly right. Whites should start getting angry about this because it is literally "cultural appropriation."
      They want to destroy White history, and they want to destroy the actual good diversity of the earth by destroying its unique cultures. This is why they're targetting japan now and why there is unfettered mass migration in white countries.
      They want no culture, no race, no religion, no family, nothing. Reduce everybody down to an atomized consumer slave and seperate them from their support networks, that's the MO. There is a lot of evil in the world, but alienating people from their families, gods, and race to systematically destroy their group is pure evil.

          have you ever been around a black person? or maybe you are black and lack self awareness. the thing is, all blacks act like that. the stereotypes exist because every single black person non-blacks ever interact with are like "Sheeeit bix nood homie keeps it rull in hurr"

          we just like realism in our games

            Stereotypes are only a fair problem for the minority in the group that don't live up to them, at least assuming the stereotype is based on an actual trend and not gossip or something that stopped being true at some point.

          It would be nice if black people in games actually acted like black people. People don't complain about the black people in GTA because they come across as actual people. I have black friends, and I am not just making that up. They're from middle class families and have decent jobs. You know what? They say homie. I cannot remember the last time a black guy said homie, in a modern setting, in a game since GTAV. I can't remember the last time a black guy actually talked about liking rap, or enjoying other elements of black culture. While you can say this doesn't apply to fantasy games, and it doesn't, you still have characters like Wyll Smith from BG3 who is just... boring. He is nothing. He has a black VA but has no charm or charisma and just stands there being a good guy but he has le demon mommy patron. Why does he have no personality but Gale and Astarion chew up the scenery in every bit of dialogue?
          The fact of the matter is that 90% of these black people are written by white people, and they tend to act "white" because the writers are so afraid of giving them any sort of black cultural touchstones that they'll come across as racist. One common thing in black culture is the use of a falsetto voice when cracking jokes or fricking around, or exaggerating their accents for comedic effect ("Shiieeeeeeeeeet!") and my friends do that all the time and they're great, yet I don't remember anyone outside of GTA ever doing that.

    1. She is overdesigned and reeks of some kind of self-insert Mary Sue nonsense. Daughter of someone incredibly famous, but also half elf. Missing an arm but fights just as well as anyone else. Has two different colored eyes (I know one is damaged) along with scars. This type of character is annoying regardless of race or gender.
    2. She has been offered a prosthetic arm in a world where we see literal robots able to have hands just as dexterous as any regular one, and yet refuses it out of some lame sense of nobility of wanting to leave that arm for someone else. There are mechagnomes whose nearly entire bodies are made of mechanical limbs, there is no shortage. This is annoying and stupid.
    3. She is going to serve no purpose in the story other than to be a heroic figure that saves the preestablished characters from some sort of danger or problem. There will be a huge focus on her, and when combined with the two previous points, makes her even more annoying. Faerin could be Faero and be a white guy and he'd still be lame for being le scarred one armed super badass knight man.

      It definitely is funny how every time there's a race of humans in modern fantasy slop, it means medieval European culture.
      That includes blacks dressed in medieval European knight armors and such.
      It's because other cultures are represented by different races.
      So if you dressed the non-white human characters in their respective clothes, people would be asking "why are the humans wearing troll or panda or tauren or whatever armor".

      I find it hilarious how normalized it's become, to have whites and blacks with brit accents, then some token asian with a katana and straw hat, and anything else is non-human.

        But the closest thing to black culture any Warcraft race has are certain Trolls which act as a stand in for Haitians or Jamaicans.
        Making a black human nation in Warcraft that wasn't one of the generic ones in WCII is cooler than trying to haphazardly weld them into Stormwind. Make them fantasy Mali with a gold aesthetic who have ventured from wherever they were hidden to trade with the world.

    This criteria is nonsense because this is not a character. It's a frankenstein homonculi that was created purely for political reasons, to make others demoralized. It was fabricated with corporate factory defaults by a checklist and a points graph, not a writer and designer. If you were asked instead to justify this thing's existence you'd fall back on something like "it's fantasy, you can accept dragons/aliens/etc but not a strong voluntary cripple PoC with the name Lothar??" which just goes to show how little the current IP holders actually care about their IP.

    I am unironically confused because we have mechagnomes missing all 4 limbs yet this human can't have a robot arm. I don't understand the distinction. I will presume that it's because pic related.

    Faerin is a bland character in general. Appearance "quirks" aside, she's just another character who
    >Is in this position entirely by chance and not for any real good reason
    >Has faced adversity against neverending enemies without EVER attempting to take a step towards a better future until the player and main characters show up
    >Refused improvements for personal reasons that don't mean a thing (She straight up turns down a fricking mechanical arm because "it'd be a pain to learn how to live with two arms again", like fricking seriously?)
    Her attire is genuinely cool. The whole fricking aesthetic about the Arathor clothes and armor is amazing, considering it's coming from modern Warcraft. From everything I've read, she's a pretty bland character that's just a leader, but without any real buildup. Compare her to Anduin and Thrall, the actual main characters;
    >Anduin was kidnapped as a child
    >Watched his father get retconed in real time
    >Had to man the frick up during a war
    >Watched his surrogate father Saurfang get killed by a bullshit attack
    >Got kidnapped as a grown ass man, and raped into submission by a really big bald guy in prison
    >Lost his own self worth, but still pushes forward
    Faerin has none of this. She's a stowaway that got sent underground in a freak accident. That's it.

      Faerin exists to be something to fixate on during a bunch of questions that don't matter in a zone you won't remember so that you may continue paying $15 a month to run on the mogs mounts n' cheevos worlo hamster wheel.

      I'm starting to actually resent you midwit Black folk who keep begging the question, as if the whole situation with World of Warcraft wasn't boiled down into formulaic algebra at least ten years ago. Every character you like from Warcraft 3 is either dead or written out. Thrall is the setting equivalent of Triple H, the least appealing frick out of ten people who basically got his narrative presence by default because "he's the oldest character still around." Anduin was the only one with promise so it was up to about four or five writers to try and pull him in that many directions, ruining him in the process. Every place and character you will ever see or notice is ESG shit, defended by "people" who would be raped and cannibalized if grocery stores stopped stocking for a month. What new shit do you expect to excavate out of this rotting corpse? Go tell your mom you love her.

        How long are homosexuals like you going to b***h and seethe at the idea that the playerbase either enjoys or doesn't care about the story because its only real relevancy is to give context to the current visual design of the dungeons and raids i.e. the actual gameplay. Really does feel like the majority of you are or used to be the "mogs mounts n' cheevos worlo hamster wheel" sperg players because only that type of player would give a shit about stuff that is so inconsequential to the actual content of the game. No one I know who plays gives a shit about the schizo drivel you're on about -- they care about how fun the current tier or M+ pool is.
        No one has quit wow because of the story. It's an excuse you give yourself because you're either dogshit at it now, or it's simply no longer the game you played when you were younger but you're too emotionally immature to come to terms with that in a way that doesn't involve you sperging out like a jaded ex lover.

    Theres nothing wrong with representation, but when you stack multiple different uncommon traits together onto a new character, especially one thats related to a character previously described as being "the last of" whatever or some kind of rare bloodline you end up with something like a mary sue or writer insert that people will instinctively dislike. Shonenslop and capeshit does the later of this all the time whenever the author wants to create a new plot relevant deuteragonist and somehow fit them into the ongoing plot, and it almost always fails to capture the intended audience.

      >fantasy where anything is possible, cause it's fantasy you ain't gotta explain shit
      >choose to remain a cripple in an environment where being at your best is essential to your survival

      1. She is overdesigned and reeks of some kind of self-insert Mary Sue nonsense. Daughter of someone incredibly famous, but also half elf. Missing an arm but fights just as well as anyone else. Has two different colored eyes (I know one is damaged) along with scars. This type of character is annoying regardless of race or gender.
      2. She has been offered a prosthetic arm in a world where we see literal robots able to have hands just as dexterous as any regular one, and yet refuses it out of some lame sense of nobility of wanting to leave that arm for someone else. There are mechagnomes whose nearly entire bodies are made of mechanical limbs, there is no shortage. This is annoying and stupid.
      3. She is going to serve no purpose in the story other than to be a heroic figure that saves the preestablished characters from some sort of danger or problem. There will be a huge focus on her, and when combined with the two previous points, makes her even more annoying. Faerin could be Faero and be a white guy and he'd still be lame for being le scarred one armed super badass knight man.

      Not "fixing" yourself via magic because you want a physical reminder of some kind of traumatic event in your life in order to keep yourself motivated towards a goal is not a new or difficult to understand concept. It's not even a new concept in this fricking franchise. A character designed by a committed on this board would be a grey cube.

              Well they animated it like this. Apparently the idea they're going for is that the clip is able to move freely around the shoulder-pad, allowing it to do this.

              especially as she appears to use a lance/spear thing. Just angle your body side on if needs be and start jabbing. And this is before you even consider that all these Arathi are light users, so there's likely a whole other level of light magic protection going on.
              Issues about realism in this game's combat design dwindle pretty quickly when you see shit like a rogue apparently injecting poison and venom into an enemy with a dagger the size of a toaster for only minor dot damage.

              Even if you put it in a fantasy setting it becomes even WORSE in combat because of characters with superhuman abilities. The lack of flexibility and maneuverability gets her killed by any enemy that feints, has superior footwork or hell can GRAB you because she only has one arm.

    In this particular case it's just a Black fatigue, people gonna be pissed no matter what, there's just too many Blacks and other freaks around rn. If you want to go deeper into this question, then without typing too large of an article, warcraft is essentially a "fantasy" based on European myths and culture. Every "dragons, knights and magic" is essentially a European culture, therefore putting sub-Saharan Africans in this setting is a cultural appropriation. Because of the white imperialism and because whites themselves don't give a single frick about protecting their heritage and culture(they better follow israeli fairy tales and cut their foreskins), European culture became the "fantasy", the "default culture" and eventually the "white people have no culture". Because there were no people to protect it from appropriation. Damn, in some places like Ireland people barely speak their own native language. Imaging the level of cuckening.

    I think WoW just looks really boring and inconsistent. Who even knows when exactly it started; it doesn't really matter, but it's definitely uninspiring today.
    WoW likes to tout a new major lore character or two each expansion, but nothing ever seems to come from them. I see no reason why this character would be any different.
    I don't read the books or anything so for the last 10 years I've been missing enough behind-the-scenes lore that I can't make sense of the narrative anyway.

    You try to block something with a shield put like that. To block something you need to twist your body, which makes the thing cumbersome and useless against someone fast enough, there's nothing to dampen the hit so any hit strong enough will just kill her instead of just breaking her arm or the incredibly useful and replaceable magical prothesis she apparently doesn't want to wear.
    At this point I'm not even bothered about her being a black Lothar anymore. It's the nerve of daring to use a shield in that stupid impractical way, that lives apparently depend on her skill with it, what makes me thing that to whoever the frick designed that atrocity, handicapped people might as well be aliens using magic to get by.

    there are cool women warriors and cool black warriors. and there are definitely cool crippled warriors, that's in fact one of the coolest things you can be
    the problem here is that their differences have zero impact on their character. there is absolutely nothing about this character that would change if they were a white, able-bodied man
    this is presumably intentional; the 'end goal' of modern equality is the complete eradication of differences between white men and every other combo. this is just an especially lazy and uninspired attempt

    black people do not belong in european fantasy stories because the culture of storytelling that they spring from (myths, legends, and gods) were never part of their culture to begin with. They have no claim to it nor should they because it is not theirs culturally. The Lord of the Rings is based on anglo and swedish myth, along with a bit of german in there

    The shield is basically useless.

Them doubling down over and over again on it only made the game worse and worse and now it's just unsalvagable garbage for nobody. Classic is only popular because there is nothing before it. You don't miss out by playing until it reaches the next expansion that naturally was unpopular as frick because guess what: you started missing out.

    Wow is shit. It will never be not shit. The lore is ruined. It will forever be ruined and it makes the game worse retroatively. They never figurer out how to balance the classes either or how to make dungeons and raiding fun. Starting as a new player you get showered with so much dogshit and nothing makes sense.

    I dont really have a problem with her. As I haven't played the retail game in quite some time. Really the last thing I wanted from wow was already given to me in playable goblins during cata. This lady isn't in the faction I played as anyway as humans (besides kad'gar) are pretty boring in the setting. And it was really hard to care about them after King Varian Wrynn died in legion. He had this cool story about being two dudes in one body and he had this sword that could split into two etc. Overall really likeable guy cause he wasn't afraid of fighting the Horde at a moments notice. W/e he's gone now and I assume Jaina is at this point as well I have no idea so they can do whatever they want with the humans characters they've already peaked.

    I think what most people don't get is that the variety to the races in wow was always a big selling point in playing the game. Humans are just one race in the game with a long history in the world. It's clear that the op character is an attempt for them to make more memorable characters because they have nearly run out of legacy characters to use. Her design being more of a attention seeking design than a genuinely creative character concept for the setting. We've had one armed characters, we've had one eyed characters, we've had dark skinned characters, we've had female faction leaders, shield users etc etc. If she had come out during the game's prime her character design would actually look a lot cooler because she would actually seem like a fresh concept. But she's a modern wow character and the last time a modern wow character was compelling was gaarosh.

    it is too close to the hard truth which is europe wouldnt be shit without middle east/africa/asia influence after romes collapse and their dark ages. european empires are a shadow compared to arabic empires, those kings have lived greater than any euro king in history, and still do in modern absolution. the majority of people in the west need to believe they are on top of the world, and the majority look like anglos

    its just like how arabic kingdoms in fantasy are never as grand as anglo, when in reality its the opposite

        monarch>>>the rest of us. euros should have just let israelites settle in Europe and fully subjugate them honestly, since they have been their lapdogs for centuries. maybe then they could have rallied a serious effort against Muslims lmao

            oil is the back bone of every modern empire and they have the most by far. by the time their reserves even begin to run dry the rest of the world will be in crisis mode hunting for it

    1. Modern millenial haircut which doesn't fit fantasy at all
    2. Weird prosthetics and weapon choice for someone who is one armed, especially in high fantasy setting with magic prosthetics and stuff (mechagnomes)
    3. Using name of a famous character without biologically looking like one.
    If she was Ouaga from tribe Qwewe, with an axe and a metal chainsaw arm and long hair, noone would complain that she's a nog. Also wearing white peoples clothes is cultural appropriation

    Is there a vid with this character?
    I want to know how bad is she gonna be voiced.
    The barely literate dislexic sounding one who voiced Talanji was hilarious.
    Or are they gonna leave the stupid wakanda accent for the trolls and make them sound Scottish like they did in Dragon's Dogma 2 for some reason?
    Either way, I'm sure it's going to be hilarious.

    Its not the design Iam mad at its the fact that the Lore around certain characters of warcraft is being fricked with.Anduin lothar could've had a pure whiteskinned baby girl and I still woulda hated it because its out of left field and handled by metzen who is being filtered through a inhouse writing team who for the most part are absolutely trash.

    Nations of Alterac and Arathor are known to be nations inhabited by paleskinned highlander peoples. You ever seen a highlander Black? Yeah, neither have I. I would have no issues with her if she came from Tel Abim or Tanaris or something, but what business does she have in Arathi? Did one of Trollbane's ancestors have an affair with a pirate captain or something during southern adventures?

      The "Arathi" she's part of are living underground, where the expansion takes place.
