This is way better lorewise too
Surprised they went whole-hog on this change! They could have just renamed it to Ma'kari, but now they have to redo VA, that takes genuine dedication.
Prefer the new name, never knew how to properly pronounce Mac'Aree...
Better name. the previous one always put mac and cheese into my head every time I seen it.
They've gone way too far with this renaming nonsense. Mac'Aree was not even close to (Jesse) McCree.
Mac'Aree always sounded weird anyways
I still think this is dumb. Mac'aree has been hinted at/talked about since TBC. It's even mentioned in a few books. It stands on its own as a place in WoW lore. No one thinks of "Jesse Mccree" when Mac'aree is talked about.That's just me though.
Very useful and impactful fix. Thanks blizz!
Oh come on, they really did it...
Hot take but I actually kinda prefer the new name.
I am all for the fight agaist the bs happening at blizzard hq....but to destroy and rewrite drenai lore just cause a name triggers you...is a lil to far. Names in a game litterally do nothing...even if he did bad &*!@ he still helped develop the game we all love.
I honestly hadn't connected "Mac'Aree" and "McCree"...are they pulling in voice actors to change the voice lines, too?
Normally I think renaming things in-game because of external politics is kinda cringey, but this new name is actually an improvement. "Mac'Aree" doesn't sound very Warcrafty to me. Never did.
This retcon is justified and welcomed. There are a few times when changes like this maybe don't make sense if you're approaching it from a pure lore perspective - but you guys remember why they are doing this? That's why. Not because of some lore reason they've decided on purely to annoy you.
gonna take some time getting used to but it's a neat name.
You will always be Mac'Aree for me. I will miss you!. :'(
