Look at this dude. He was the protagonist of Warcraft: Orcs & Humand and Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness. He was the warchief of the Horde than almost conquered Lordaeron -Gul'dan and Cho'gall betrayed him right then. The one who killed both Blackhand and Lothar and forced Gul'dan into submission-for a while at least. The mentor of Thrall. The current orc capital is named in his honour.
Now, I really know. We have many orc characters. And people, understandably, want Grom Hellscream. I want Grom too, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying devs should release Orgrim Doomhammer tomorrow. I just want to expose that he's a really relevant character that, due to multiple reasons, never had a proper moment to shine. He wasn't in game in the Warcrfat games because back then heroes weren't really a thing- I mean, we had some of them but they rarely appeared and until Beyond the Dark Portal they weren't that important. He was supposed to show up-and there are videos of that- in Warcraft adventures but the game got cancelled. Blizzard rushed the WoW expansion "Warlords of Draenor' and he was a tertiary character, at best, there. In short, despite how important he was, nowadays he's barely known, as you can see in the polls about most wanted characters.
So, since devs gave us awesome Warcraft 2 characters like Zul'jin and Cho'gall, I'd love if some day, they take into consideration adding Orgrim Doomhammer into the game. If some people think he would be too similar to Thrall appearance-wise, devs only have to base his appearance in his Warcraft 2 art-minus the spikes in the hammer I guess. Also the fact that he didn't have in-game appearances gives the devs all the room to innovate with his kit without people saying that it doesn't fulfill the character-well, except if they turn him into a mage who throws lasers and fireballs at people.
Again, I'm not saying they should prioritize him over more requested characters like Grom, D2 druid, Baal, the Overmind or Mannoroth. But I think he would be a blast from the past and that us older Warcraft fans would love to play as him, the original cunning badass orc,
TL.DR: Orgrim Doomhammer was a really important character and while I understand that there are other way more requested characters, I think it'd be great if some day the devs take him into consideration.
