I'm neutral on the issue of goblins, but I would be really, really unhappy if they gave Worgen to the Alliance. I don't feel that a beast-like race would be a good fit for the Alliance, especially if they turn out to be cursed humans. The Alliance has always struck me as being rather... prejudiced. They don't seem to like anyone who isn't humanlike and/or light oriented. Even the Draenei, despite having shaman, are mostly light- and paladin-oriented, and seem to look down on the elements of their society that are both shamanistic and cursed, the Broken. Also, someone mentioned this before and got voted down, but the humans in the game haven't been very welcoming to their own who are suffering from curses not of their own making. Just look at the Forsaken, former humans and high elves who were killed and brought back by a terrible disease, and rather than try to help them, the Alliance shuns and even tries to destroy them. Even family and former friends. (Small wonder they've become so bitter and angry...)If Worgen turned out to be related to Elune, I suppose I could see them joining with the Night Elves. I'd still have a hard time seeing the other Alliance members accepting them, though.That, and I really, really want to play a worgen, and leveling an Alliance character would just make me feel... dirty somehow...

The Gilneas connection to the Worgen, may not be the strongest, but what happened to the Gilnean is a mystery, and there isn’t really a lot of undead around that part of silver pine forest either so likely something yet foreseen has happened to them or the Worgen curse did it to them. As for the Alliance being prejudice against the Forsaken and Blood Elves it largely the other way around. The Forsaken is mind bent on destroying the scourge, which will likely have been completed by the next expansion, so who knows what there future drive will become? The Blood Elves feel betrayed by there former allies, but really only have strong connection to the Forsaken. Which is largely because of the Forsaken Leader Sylvanias and many of the other Forsaken were once High Elves.Which lead me to my conclusion about any Horde that Gilneas transformed into Worgen or not could not join the Horde. Because the Gilnean did not help the Humans of Lordaeron or the High Elves in the time of need, they hid behind their wall and didn’t do anything. The Alliance at least helped fight the Third War. The Gilineas did nothing and both the Forsaken and Blood Elves know they did nothing. So it would be the Forsaken and Blood Elves that would prevent the Gilneans form joining the Horde out of more spite for them, than they have for their other former Allies.
