I think most of the Alliance's problems in this regard stem from it's lack of proper leadership. As others have noted, the symbol we use is the symbol of Stormwind and it's bellicose idiot of a monarch who wouldn't know diplomacy if it ganked him on a PVP server. We should be using the symbol of Lordaeron, the funny LP thing; it looks badass, and back in WC2 it was gold on white. Awesome. I was so bloody annoyed after the Battle for the Wrathgate, when Alexstrasza says "take Bolvar's shield to your King" ... right on, I'll take that straight to Magni. Wait, you want me to take it to Mr. Angry in Stormwind? I didn't vote for him! He only loses out on the title of the Alliance's Worst Ruler because Mekkatorque managed to irradiate his own capital!Dwarves, now, have an excellent warcry and an excellent symbol in that hammer-anvil-and-mountain thing. FOR KHAZ MODAN! Even my Draenei pally has a decent warcry; DEATH TO THE DEAD! DEATH TO THE DAMNED! VENGEANCE FOR ARGUS! My night elf warden - uh, rogue - an alchemy-addicted psychotic killing machine who thinks that Tyrande is a criminal, Malfurion is a fool, and Fandral is a jerk - also has an excellent battle cry, borrowed from the great Maiev Shadowsong in WC3; THE GUILTY SHALL SUFFER!Gnomes ... well, they don't have the battle cry or the symbol, but they're the most advanced technological civilization since the time of the Titans, and they will simultaneously freeze and burn your behinds if you underestimate them because they look cute.And yet somehow the humans' idiot king got to be de facto leader of the Alliance? Pfeh.I am hopeful that when the Cataclysm comes, we can see Genn Greymane - a leader ruthless, cunning, and intelligent enough to properly run the Alliance, not to mention A FREAKING WEREWOLF - take over the reins from Stormwind's idiot manchild.
