I did not play any WC games prior to WoW. I did not know anyone who played WoW prior to playing WoW. But before buying the game I decided to research the story and what the game involved. I found that from an outsiders perspective the Horde were the good guys and the Alliance attempt to be good but seem to come off as bigots. Also, people who decided to play Ally because they are the prettier faction should not argue which is better because they come off as ignorant, much in the same way people who play Horde because LOLBADGUYS should not argue which is "better".I respect numerous Alliance figures such as; Malfurion Stormrage, Jaina Proudmoore, Tirion Fordring, Brann Bronzebeard and the Prophet Velen. But characters such as Varian Wrynn and Daelin Proudmoore annoy me to no end. (The same can be said for Garrosh Hellscream.)I have tried to play Alliance before to get a better understanding, but found I could not level past around 25-30ish due to the immature players, I'm sorry for the generalisation but the spam in the public channels just remind me of the barrens except it's in trade.If you play Alliance for friends or because the lore does not interest you, you just played the more attractive race for PVP or end game raiding then I can respect that. If you play Alliance for lore purposes, you are deluded :)

I DO play alliance for lore purposes though. Same reason I play horde. There are TWO sides to every story..sometimes more. It's not fair to just listen to the horde side, even if I consider them the more honorable of the two factions. I want to see and know it all...and if that means playing on the side that makes me randomly want to switch sides every time varian opens his mouth..well that's what it means.

That's fair enough Malkia. I more or less meant if you play your faction with great pride for lore reasons. But if that's how you play I can respect that :)
