The Horde *is* basically like the old Horde, just with better PR in the form of Thrall. Arathi Basin is an outright evil powergrab. So are the quests in Southshore. Ashenvale is pointless and vindictive on the Horde's part. Jaina betrays her own troops by abandoning Northwatch keep when the Horde takes it out. Those quests to kill Alliance soldiers in western Northrend are just stupid and vile.The Horde is one long series of evil acts followed by disavowing responsibility. The Horde fights alongside someone against the alliance only for that person to turn out to be evil and then throws up their hands and goes "Iunno how this happened again!" Blizzard spent too long building up Thrall and the Horde for them to ever get their just rewards, but goddamn am I glad Varian's around to at least try and keep a semblance of balance and fairness. No more "Kill ten archaeologists for snooping" quests, maybe, now that there's a king who takes this stuff seriously.
