Garona killed Llane while being controlled by the Shadow Council, not at Orgrim's command. The Know Your Lore article you link to even confirms this for you.

Dude writes an amazing article about the history of Varian Wynn, and you feel the need to nitpick one small fact. Calm your Nerdrage, young one.

Varian Wrynn has every right to be mad. Humans were decimated in the First and Second Wars. Stormwind and his family reduced to nothing. The ironic thing here is that the Horde's Blood elves voted for executing every single one, while Stormwind and Lordaeron made sure they were put in internment camps instead. Without Varian Wrynn voting against mass execution, there wouldn't be any 'New Horde'.

The reason the situation is so weird is that the relationship between the alliance and the horde has begun to improve. When the game first came out, we hated each other simply because the game was a Warcraft game, and we all had picked sides. But as the game progressed, it seems that the horde and alliance began to team up more and more, to the point where we couldn't even attack each other in these so-called "neutral cities". We could even inspect each others gear and talk to one another as zombies.As an Alliance player, I got used to cooperating with the horde. Now I need to hate the Orcs because the King is back? Give me a reason why. All his history is mostly tied into the comic books. Many, many alliance players had no idea who the npcs were standing near the king during the scourge invasion of Stormwind Harbor simply because they didn't read the comic. Blizzard has really failed to give the alliance a reason to follow this so-called king and fight against people we all have come to accept. Come up with more lore to support this IN GAME, or figure something else out.

I think the situation is somewhat analgous to past 100 years or so of world history, ie US and USSR forming a very nervous alliance against the Japanese and Germany and of course the years and years of cold war and little satellite wars in asia in lieu of a nuclear world war 3. Come to think of it, this situation matches up almost perfectly in game. Horde and Alliance can't have an all out war against each other becuase they simply can't afford it with so many external enemies and they fight lots of little wars going on in battlegrounds.

I think the countless senseless murders I ' ve experienced at the hands of cruel horde players is plenty in-game lore for me to hate them and all their kind.
