@amaxesorry, but the burning legion was on azeroth WELL before the orcs came along... they've only been around for something like 30 years, while the burning legion got brought to azeroth by the night elves something like 10000 years ago. To be completely accurate, everything thats gone wrong on azeroth over the course of the warcraft games is their fault, originally... theyre the ones who played with magic and caught the burning legion's attention, and then tried to summon sargeras to azeroth, for crying out loud. But we dont go around saying that the night elves are bad. Well, except fandral. That guy is a douche.ALL the races have their jerks. That doesnt mean the whole race is bad, and this goes to @ToddYes, the orcs practiced genocide against the draenei, which was undeniably a Bad Thing. But surely they deserve another chance. We dont hold all germans responsible for what happened in world war 2, do we? The nazi comparison might be a bit much, but i think it helps to get the point across there. And Putress and his buddies betrayed EVERYONE at the wrathgate, as you yourself pointed out... that wasnt the work of the horde, that was the work of a radical faction that splintered off, and then actually took over one of the horde's cities. And the blood elves siphoning power from mu'ru was, again, not everyone... that was almost exclusively the doing of the blood knights. And then the leader of the blood knights tried to atone for the actions of their people. While it was undeniably bad that it happened, at least she tried to atone. I dont see varian apologising to the defias, do you? The point i'm trying to get at (and am probably getting badly sidetracked from along the way) is that neither side are "the good guys". They've BOTH done things that they should be ashamed of, things that we would consider bad or evil, just as theyre both "good" in many ways.
