Why is it that the majority of people I see and read about online play horde? Why does it seem that alliance is a joke to the crew of wow.com and the majority of readership as it seems.Everytime someone says something about an Alliance player it's "reroll horde". And how come I see horde stickers everywhere on peoples' cars but no alliance..... anything?

/trollBecause Alliance sucks./end trollYou see people doing something you have not chosen to, so you are noticing it and taking note of it whenever it happens. Look at the classic cases. Mac vs PC, Ford vs Chevy, Republican vs Democrat. You can actually find people that are rabid about it and it is likely because they feel that if someone chose the other side, they have to defend their decision. People hate feeling like they made the wrong choice on something important.Example of it here...Matt Rossi has a shaman column. He kept showing Space Goat screenshots. People asked why and he responded that he hasn't given the Orc shaman much love. He had pics from people the next week showing Horde as an apology. That was the Horde people doing the same thing you are. We know Rossi likes both sides, he's made comments about it. But people saw a pattern that wasn't there and called him on it. Take the entire articles on the Idiot King of Stormwind being right and wrong. They had both sides talking a lot. Did you notice my putting my viewpoint in there? Yep. You saw it right away if you like Alliance or the bonehead. (heh)I've played both sides. It's not important enough for me to be rabid. I'll punch holes in the rabid people's views because I am kinda OCD about that, but normally I do this for fun anyway.Don't worry, the Alliance has plenty of supporters.

Another reason it might seem that there's more horde support on the 'net may be that the horde player base is simply more vocal. A lot of Horde players, especially those who've been playing Horde since Vanilla WoW, think of the Horde as being the underdog, scrappy ragtag team that has to fight for every inch of what they get. So they tend to be very vocal about their factions allegiance.

In the sortest possible terms: One reason you see Horde things everywhere because I, as a Horde player, see Alliance things everywhere.
