There was a bit of a stir yesterday after the E3 presentation of Battle for Azeroth, where developer John Hight, when talking to IGN, maybe-maybe not mentioned Blood Trolls as an Allied Race. As you’d expect, reddit jumped right down the man’s throat and analyzed whether he said “Don’t be surprised if see the possibility of playing as one at some point” or “Don’t be surprised if…if you don’t see the possibility of playing as one at some point”. Here’s the statement in question, and it does seem a little confusingly expressed:
And today we have the answer, and it’s not going to make people too happy:

Just to clear the confusion, there was a small segment in yesterday’s E3 interview with IGN in which we weren’t entirely clear – but we want to clarify that Blood Trolls are not currently planned as an Allied Race.
It can be easy to mix up words in interviews when you’re covering a range of story points such as that of the Blood Trolls and their interactions with the Zandalari – but we just wanted to be sure we could get a note out on this before we get more Allied Race rumors flying around. ?
Thanks for the discussion here!
