Curious. I couldn't abide by the playing of the Horde, with its "Ends Justify the means" evil. The Forsaken based quests struck me as particularly offensive killing farmers and the like. The Tauren were not so bad, but really outside of a misguided sense of loyalty to the orcs over hospitality, I can't see them as fitting in with the Horde. People often cite Wrynn as proof of the racism of the Alliance, but the question he asked at Undercity is quite valid: If the (bloodlusted) orcs had not come to Azeroth from Draenor, how much more peaceful would Azeroth have been?The Horde has to recognize that the evil on Azeroth (Scourge, Burning Legion) did not exist before the Orcs cameSo while Wrynn could be considered wrong to use derogatory terms for orcs, the responsibility of the orcs for the evils here is rather high. Thrall may indeed be seeking to raise the orcs up from barbarism to being a civilized people, but there is a lot of evil which is to be undoneSo it cuts both ways.
