@1I hardly ever find anyone less than 20 on horde side, and the few that are under 20 usually say something along the lines of "My main is a (pick an alliance race and insert here)".I can see this post breaking down into pandemonium right now.I feel like being a horde character does give you a right to feel superior. The alliance has an advantage given to low lvl characters in that they have 3 zones, beyond the starting zones, that are alliance dominated with no horde town whatsoever (Redridge Mountains, Loch Modan, Duskwood). On PVP servers, this gives alliance characters zones to lvl to around 30 in with little horde interference. The only zone similar to this for horde is Thousand Needles, which has a high-lvl alliance flight path right on the border with Feralas, and also the easiest path for alliance to take to get to Tanaris.When a horde character hits 20, the zone with the best quests/rewards is hillsbrad, which on PVP servers turns into a ganking ground. On PVE servers, you still have to compete with alliance characters for quest mobs.Then of course theres the population imbalance that gives the alliance a larger population on most servers. Larger populations mean a better chance of good players in guilds, which indirectly means they end up with better gear, giving horde players a further disadvantage when facing off in PVP.I started horde because I had friends who played horde, and obviously, as a noob, I wanted their help. The few alliance characters I have started turned me off to alliance completely because the starting zones always seem to be overcrowded. And asking for help in an alliance zone usually ends with nothing but aggitation.I'm happy to play horde, and looking forward to killing alliance on my new character on a PVP realm.
