I'll admit that Alicorn Twilight was an asspull, but reasonable. Cadence made a bit of sense, but Flurry is fucking retarded and completely ruins the "Alicorns represent primal forces" kinda vibe with Magic, Love, Light and Dark. What the fuck is she supposed to represent? Baby?
Further, why does hoers need to be an Alicorn to be a Princess? I mean hell, Sombra was a king league kingly threat and he was just some unicorn fuck with a stair fetish.
They should have kept Twi a unicorn as princess to show a lesson of "Hey, just cuz your friend gets a new job with new responsibilities doesn't mean they've changed", and saved the alicorn stuff for these last 2-3 seasons. Tirek was an amazing final boss but they blew their load too soon on that and now we have a beauracrat being this season's villain. Fuck's sake at least bring back Grogar or even the Smooze
