FOR THE HORDE!
5-21-2009 @ 1:04PM
Of all the silly things to take pride in, why would people choose an arbitrary faction in a video game? I've played on both factions. You encounter the same sorts of people on both sides. They are the same.I guess its the same reason I never understand unwavering loyalty to professional sports teams, political parties, nations, etc. We all intuitively understand that individuals are imperfect. Why then do some people latch on to the obviously flawed concept that a large group of imperfect individuals could be perfect?

FOR THE HORDE!After all, living in the Deep South, how can you not love the Orcs for saying, "OKRA"?"Yes ma'am - battered in corn meal and pan fried, and I'll take pulled pork barbeque sandwich and a glass of sweet tea and with that."

FOR THE HORDE! All you have to do is go on to the RP section of the forum or spend 5 minutes on my server (Terokkar) to see Horde pride. I began WoW with neutral feelings towards both factions as a whole and a dislike of undead, now my main IS an undead and I am a Horde favoritist. Mana your just asking to turn this into a flamefest so I won't specifically answer your question here. Your asking a question that spans thousands of years about a fictional universe that hasn't been around for long.

"asking to turn this into a flamefest"You mean kind of like posting an article that begs for comments like "FOR THE HORDE"

To borrow from the late George Carlin's words:"...I can never understand ethnic or national pride; cuz to me, pride should be reserved for something you achieve or attain on your own, not something that happens by accident at birth. Being Irish isn't a skill... it's a ----ing genetic accident! You wouldn't say 'I'm proud to be 5'11'', I'm proud to have a predisposition for colon cancer.' So why the ---- would you be proud to be Irish? Or proud to be Italian, or American or anything... hey, if you're happy with it, that's fine, [...] be happy, don't be proud. Too much pride as it is: 'pride goeth before a fall', never forget your proverbs."That should illustrate Mana's point quite well here.And I know, bleeping out the F word in a Carlin quote seems ironic, but hey, rules are rules.
