Ah...i see. it interpreted my less than sign as html.Fwiw, that was supposed to be:Number of servers where this is true: less than 50%It's just one of those memes that has always been part of WoW and probably always will be, no matter what.

UGH! I hate comments like this. Half the Horde players I know would say..."Percentage of servers where Alliance believes it's superior to the Horde: 100%Number of servers where this is true: less than 50%"The thing that all these Horde players and Alliance players such as yourself have in common -you think that you are different from each other. Horde and Alliance are very much the same in most aspects. "Blizzard favors Horde -Blizzard favors Alliance... WAHHH"Both sides have cool players. Both sides have jerks. Both sides have good players. Both sides have poor players.Even when I hear someone in my guild make a comment like this I'm quick to jump on it. It's the ultimate in making excuses and QQ. On a personal level, I moved to Horde several years ago to escape the nonsense and immaturity of Alliance... but these days I play both and believe me, the grass is pretty brown-green on both sides of the fence.

@GerI agree with the people part of the argument.However, there is something to be said about Racials and population Imbalance.For racials, WotF is the best PvP racial, hands down. Any edge is still an edge. For pop imbalance (which is really the bigger reason to switch), the side with the bigger pop has a bigger chance of winning WG. It's still close to 50/50, but its not even.The biggest incentive to switch (that I see) is for getting into a better raiding guild. I know on my server (burning blade) only 3 out of the top 10 raiding guilds are alliance, and its been that way for a long time. (Horde:Alliance is i think at 1.8:1)

Can't say i'm surprised by the downranking and the assumptions that my comment was intended to indicate Alliance supremacy. I've played both sides and i've witnessed the same thing from both perspectives. The myth of Horde superiority persists and it's independent of the "the guys on the opposite faction on my server are jerks" issue. How many times have you heard that "Horde is better at PvP" or "Horde has less kiddies" or just "Horde players are more mature?"To be honest, i'm not sure why those players tend to be more vocal about its sense of superiority, but it is. I suspect it was originally a defense mechanism because of the population imbalance that existed at the start of the game and continues today out of habit.FYI my full estimate of reality would look like this:Servers where Horde is better than Alliance: less than 50%Servers where Alliance is better than Horde: less than 50%Servers where Horde and Alliance are about equal: less than 50%

Both Horde and Alliance players think they are superior to one another, when someone like myself on both ends of the stick have seen this, I can say at the end of the day, we are all human, whether we like it or not, we aren't orcs, taurens, gnomes or dwarves. Another thing is the way Horde treat Alliance players and visa versa, espiecally on the Forums and on Normal Servers, for example, kill an A/H player, usually you get a message from a level 1 saying LOLOLOLOL L2P NUBZ!!!11one11one!, Yet they don't even know who you are, you could have everything in common, but a lot of people are too thick headed to see the other end, it's just the same on both sides. We. are. all. the. same. We play the same game, we play the same raids, the same dungeons, we level the same, we get the same stuff, it's almost like an in-game racial problem, /un-flame
