    In a way Gradius, this was why a part of me DID agree with you back then on the battlenet forums when you were trying to predict LotV's ending, and you said the moment Amon was beaten Zeratul would just slit Kerrigan's throat and say "Raszagal sends her regards."

    The whole honor system is only intended for a for who has a moral code in return, and since you continue to insist her had no moral grounds.... (now granted I certainly felt her morality was VERY seriously lacking too)

    I object to your statement only because it's "Artanis." The SC2 incarnation seems to have just about nothing to do with the BW incarnation, which pisses me off. Now, if you like what they did with him in SC2, I could respect that if the character had a different name. That's it. A name swap and I would be fine with everything. Well, not everything, but everything related to the character.

    Honestly, I don't like how Artanis' leadership was presented in LotV. He was just a newbie who was doubted by Aldaris and guided to some extent by Zeratul. He wasn't ready for such a big leadership role, and it makes more sense for him to be part of a military council, with separate civilian leadership.

    Recall in the short story Artanis: Sacrifice that he originally didn't want this role, as his role was intended to be that of a templar. It just shows the Conclave's influence during Aiur's days, where Templar are largely not allowed such positions of leadership

    Didn't you know that "4 years passed" explains every single change and non-change from Sc1/BW to Sc2?
    Yes, that's right! That is indeed ME on the right.

    You said it was more due to a completely new writers team, from what I recall (I'll have to look again)
