I like the Tauren too and the horde campaign was arguably my favorite in WC3. The first characters I rolled on my ten day trial were an Orc and a Tauren. However, I just didn’t like all the heavy-handed love of battle, honor, hunting, and dying a good death. It’s arguably very badass and its fun to control an army of characters who hold this sentiment, but it just didn’t feel as relatable to me once I was in one of their shoes. Slapping around peons with a blackjack was kind of it for me. It just seemed kind of strange to me that a race that had been enslaved for so long would confine a population of its people to a relegated social class of physical labor and abuse.The alliance has its racist tendencies. That’s for sure. But with trolls, undead and blood elves on horde, can you honestly say the other faction doesn’t? I ultimately rolled a Night Elf Druid and then a Draenei Shaman. The night elves are arguably the most xenophobic race in the game, but if you had a bunch of people coming in and burning down and killing your tree and animal friends, wouldn’t you be too? The Draenei are probably the faction’s least racist race. Heck, they even let the blood elves team up with them in the end and those guys are crazy. Overall, I could see myself hanging in a bar with some alliance soldiers and talking about the farm back at home, the ale in ironforge, or the new invention some gnome is coming up with than sitting with some orcs and trolls and discussing how I will prove myself in battle and honor my ancestors’ spirits. It’s just relatable to me.
