Regarding the Orcs discussing the Fel, there really isn't a place to insert that after the Orcs make it to Azeroth. Orcs raid Westfall, the guardian is summoned, they fight in Elwynn Forest, Blackhand loses his hand. You can't have the scene after Blackhand loses his hand. So, there's really no other place for it other than before opening the gate, which leads to a litany of other problems.
Regarding Medivh, there is no scene in which he makes contact with the Fel. I know the movie skirts this idea that Medivh gets contaminated, but this actually isn't the case. Medivh is controlled by the demon at birth, and goes into a trance-like state when the demon takes over, forgetting everything he's done during that time. He was always "evil", so to speak, and never changes on account of interacting with the Fel. That's why there's no such scene that has this. Medivh is the most troublesome character whose motivations are so inconsistent that it makes him nearly impossible to fix.
Regarding Thrall's discovery, the reason why he's at the end of the credits is two-fold. One, I used different end-credits music, which requires removing the first section of the credits with the animation - after which is where the Thrall discovery scene is in the original. However, without that animated sequence, there was no natural place to break up the credits. Moreover, the Thrall scene is loaded with VO, which has been removed in my edit. I felt further distancing it from the film would make more sense.
And, regarding Doomhammer's betrayal, there is nothing I've removed nor can I add to make it less "out of nowhere." I do include the scene where he admits it was wrong to Durotan, but there's no other material with which to change this. What's in my edit is what is in the original.
Thank you so much for taking the time watch and review my edit!
