I have played both sides and in my experience, the horde are more apt to gank than Alliance. I usually don't try to gank as I have code of honor about attacking characters much lower than me, or attacking someone that is engaged with a mob. However, most Horde players don't seem to have such honor. My theory is that it is a product of their upbringing. Whenever a child is abused by a parent, a Horde Ganker is born.

I think you're looking at it with rose-colored glasses there. I play Horde on a PvP server, and I've been ganked by the Alliance on there plenty of times. I'm sure it happens Horde-on-Alliance as well, but I rarely see it happens, specifically because I mostly see the Horde side of things. I suspect the same thing is happening with you.

I should consider myself a punisher of bad children then ;)I tend to agree with you though. Most people playing horde like being a bad guy- that's what their lore and environment themes lead to. Alliance is the stereotypical "good guys", horde the "bad guys", and I've never heard of an alliance toon teabagging (counterstrike style "I beat you" taunt) their victim.One thing that annoys me though is the rampant defeatist attitude toward pvp I hear from most alliance players. That's why it's my personal mission to get the horde in my server to start complaining about how frustrating it is leveling with all of the cheap, lame, childish alliance gankers around.

Harmun: you have now heard of an Alliance toon teabagging a horde toon. Maybe every five fights or so, particularly the ones where it's ganking, an Alliance has done so to my toon. I've played on both sides, and neither one has a lock on bad behavior.
