The Alliance having an advantage? Never!

I actually have a theory as to why this happens. I think that more Blizzard developers play Alliance, so they're less likely to notice little things like "Hey, we put an Alliance town directly between a Horde quest hub and the quest mobs" or "Boy, these Alliance guards sure seem to go out of their way to attack Horde players" or "Every Alliance race gets to start in a lush forest, and move into some of the most beautiful zones in the game after that, but non-Tauren Horde players either start in the red desert or a horror-movie forest. And then everyone moves into a new desert, or a different horror-movie forest."I don't think they actively dislike the Horde, but I don't think they spend as much time experiencing the little inconveniences that pile up on our side.

I just cant believe you. Not only are there differences with talents, and skills (at least upto TBC - but i think most are STILL the same) but it was a well known (myth maybe) urban fact that blizz dev's played horde. There is an obvious horde bias within the company (for example when they handed out trophys within Blizzard, they were all horde figures etc). Personally i think they have just redressed the balance slightly - and given you your 'slight' annoyances.As to your 'slight annoyances' that crop up. Boo hoo, the terrain aint as pretty???? Talk about a petty moan - q for 2 hours and ull be outta them.The Q mobs and Q hub opposite side of an Allies camp? Hmmm sounds sort of the same as Stranglethorn for allies with a dam great horde camp in the middle of it. Or maybe the swamp where you have to run past the horde camp to get your q done at least 4-5 times, or maybe....etc...etc. So yeah they DO do that - to BOTH sides. Maybe the slight annoyance of not even being able to walk to the dam q hub without being led (as the only easy path) directly into a horde camp, with the only option for survival being to jump into water far below (if you last that long, and dont miss the water)Allied guards chasing you? Good thats wot their meant to do, what do you expect - them to give you flowers?
