I love playing Horde, and I have perpetual arguments with some of my RL friends that they are NOT evil. However, the fact of the matter is that orcs in particular WERE evil: they were allied with, controlled, and corrupted by the Burning Legion. Naturally, you're going to have a lot of orc bad guys.And if we're counting the trolls of Zul'Aman as a Horde race (despite the fact that those trolls were never allied with the Darkspears), then Illidan, the biggest boss in the game yet, should count as a member of an alliance race. And what about Kharazan?? True, you never fight Medivh himself, but that show is really all ABOUT Medivh. Why aren't we talking about him? If you want to get picky, both Naga and Eredar could even be argued as alliance races.It's just silly to expect that there will always be a perfect balance between horde- and alliance-races in the instance/raid bosses, so naturally sometimes the scales will tip. Not a single boss has been introduced that doesn't obviously fall out of pre-established lore, and I heavily object to the idea of twisting the game inside out just to convince some of these players that their faction isn't being targetted. Sorry guys, if you choose Horde, accepting the unsavory parts of your history is part of the bargain.Frankly, after playing both Horde and Alliance, I am REALLY sick of hearing Horde players whine. Yeah, there are advantages and disadvantages to both sides. For one thing, Horde have got it MADE when it comes to zep towers (as opposed to Alliance boat docks), and the Alliance first aid quest is a pain in the butt compared to the Horde's. Yeah, minor things, but no more minor than "waa!! allies get to have sprite darter pets and we don't!"
