I think because the horde tend to be portrayed as the underdogs or the downtrodden, their situation is more likely to inspire fiercer loyalty.To draw a horrible real-world parallel, you don't see many rich white Americans proudly shouting their status to the world, but there's a lot of black/hispanic/ethnic/cultural pride and solidarity....That being said, I do have an alliance symbol on my van. :) And no, I'm not a rich white American. I'm a middle-class white Canadian. :P

Beat me to it.The Horde races are, by and large, given many reasons to feel like the proud, struggling minorities of the Warcraft world. It gives them a different sense of purpose. I have played toons on both sides, and I know I'm generalizing.The Alliance races have the same sorts of things to be upset about as the Horde, but they don't feel like REBELS (at least not as commonly as Hordies do). Rebels yell. Downtrodden people are more likely to band together and paint their symbols on walls and proudly wear their colours everywhere.I'm not saying I think the Horde are better (I'm currently playing a proud Draenei). I just think this is why the players who identify with them are more likely to get the tattoo (and other such stuff).
