I played WC3 RoC and TFT, and I was originally surprised to see the night elfs and not the high elves in the alliance. The only thing I can think of was that the night elves natural isolationism kept them from joining the horde or the alliance, at least at first. During the 10 years between TFT and WoW they were faced with the hordes growing power in Kalimdor, and their inability to stop the hordes aggressive expansion into their territory. This left the Nelfs with two choices, be conquered by the horde, or seek allies capable of defeating the horde. With the dragons unwilling/unable to intervene, and their wood land allies such as the furbolg being in a state of disarray after the fight against Archimond, this left only the Alliance of Lordaeron.The Alliance would have been happy to have the night elves join, after the third war they knew the night elves to be a powerful nation, and they too were worried about the hordes growing power. By aiding the night elves they kept the hordes attention on kalimdor, and the night elves would provide a logical staging area should the alliance ever need to attack the horde directly.
