The Alliance need a cool figure to stand behind. A new battle cry and less, and I mean MUCH LESS, blue space goats! Worgen will the best and probably only appealing thing for the blue side. I've always loved the Horde in all its forms and will continue to, even when I cancel my account soon. Orcs rule, Humans eat gruel!

I don't know why everyone seems to hate the Draenei so much. I've always seen them as a wonderful, peaceful race who has seen a lot of suffering but still regards all peoples with fairness and equality. The fact that Velen steps forwards to cleanse the Sunwell and redeem the Blood Elf people even though the elves have been slaughtering their people since before they even reached Azeroth, seems to be an incredibly noble thing to do. They're not perfect people, as demonstrated by their prejudice towards the orcs, but their openness and willingness to consider each individual without clouded judgment has always resonated with me.

I’m going to ignore that statement about my beloved space goats. Just remember that if I were a lesser Draenei fan I’d downvote you right where you stand!

The fun thing about Draenai is that they took over the Exodar and they still didn't really know how to fly it. Who crashes into a planet?

"Orcs rule, Humans eat gruel!"Wow, I haven't heard a remark like that since the 4th grade.Anyways, I also don't understand the hate behind the Draenei. I mean, sure, they're an alien race, but you don't see anyone in the Horde against the orcs, who coincidentally, are also an alien race.As for why no alliance pride, I have to go along with the other people who said that the alliance doesn't have a single BIG faction leader to stand behind. The Horde has Thrall (and then Sylvanas secondary), while the Alliance has... um... Varian? Magni? Those two combined don't have enough loyalty from the players to equate Thrall. And the other two, Tyrande and Velen, are so out of the way that people just don't care.

Well, they were under attack at the time. I'd be like trying to drive a car with an angry cat in your lap. Note: I do not recommend attempting this for illustrational purposes.

What 'prejuidce towards the orcs'? When is this mentioned beyond a few fluff statements in some obscure quest I've never done? Attempted genocide aside, there's no indication in game that they dislike the orcs any more than any other Horde race.They're perfect. Perfect is boring. That's why I don't like the space blueberries.

Personally, I don't like Draenei for two reasons:1) The entire retcon of their lore is so completely changed from WC1 that it has always bothered the crap outta me.2) Blue space goats don't belong in fantasy game, especially when there already existed an earlier non-space goat/eredar model/version of them.

@Jabadabadana, that would be the fantasy game with steam engineering, functioning airplanes, and melted-down nuclear reactors, right? Just so we're clear.

@Jabadabadana/ChrisNot to mention the swarms and swarms of humans. I mean, humans are total fantasy creatures amirite?
