@ muffin_of_chaos:"No, the Horde has Not been "extremely aggressive." Had they been, the Alliance would probably be extinguished from the planet."They almost were. The only reason they weren't was because the Horde's aggression turned on itself and destroyed it's momentum.2.) Thrall 'might' have a bigger job to do, but he's not doing it. He allows the 'new' horde to act like the old one. He allies himself with undead who are practically the scourge but with a bit more thought. I mean really, how is marshalling the forsaken a good quality?3.) You're right, he wasn't born when the horde slaughtered the members of the alliance.4.) Yes, they only know war and bloodlust. This brought on by themselves and having enemies they created themselves.5.) Put aside the differences with the alliance? that would imply they stopped attacking them."the entire world -- that isn't yet truly their own" Soooo... you're saying you want the original inhabitants to be wiped out? What then; do what they did to Draenor?The alliance and the horde are already at open war. All Wrynn did was put a name on it. Should Wrynn really just sit aside while his people die? Who says that Thrall will get the horde into shape? It doesn't seem as if he's done anything except make them another war machine.@ Dah:Garona was mind controlled by a faction of the horde. A faction allowed to exist by the horde leaders. The horde, being an army that was already trying to wipe out the alliance.If you're saying that war has solved nothing, I might direct you to a history book.You're not, being insulted doesn't give someone the right to kill them. Being attacked by an official directly under the warchief does give you the right to defend yourself.Under the alliance's 'control' as you put it, stopped the horde from rampaging across azeroth. Given it's history it probably could 'control' the horde better than Thrall.@ Kassu:Blizzard actually did create the alliance and horde as goodies and baddies. Then it retconned things. And yes, I can say that one side is better than the other.@ Outis:The author is looking at the new and old horde's actions. Whose in charge doesn't seem to matter (whether it be Thrall or the Burning Legion). Orcs will rampage given a weapon. The orcs could have found a planet that didn't have didn't have natives already.Doomhammer and Hellscream are still symbols of the old horde.Alterac Valley did not belong to the frostwolves. Nothing belong to the orcs.If Wrynn could be blamed for anything, it was that he temporarily allied with the Horde. If you're talking about status quo, then you should consider the horde's status quo as well. While both factions vie for survival, the horde are the ones that actively seek fight with others (and each other) while the alliance tends to only end up defending itself. Wrynn is somewhat a representation of horde thinking and is essentially a creation of the orcs.
