I wish World of Warcraft will go back to the days of 2 factions who have everything to lose and everything to gain fighting in a good vs. evil type of way.Unfortunately, nowadays it just seems like a civil war on Azeroth (Humans and Night Elves vs. Blood Elves & ....uh, the other 4 races)I've pushed on this issue before, PvP realms are muchbetter representatives of the actual Warcraft storyline than RP realms. Not only because PvP realms have a more balanced amount of player races/classes (1 orc for every 2 blood elves on a pvp realm, 1 orc for every 5 blood elves on an rp realm), but also because they still allow a player to express the hostility to the other faction the way it's meant to be.

Alas, that's so not the case on my pvp realm where the horde outnumber us from 2:1 to as high as 4:1 depending on the week and the VAST majority of these are Belfs. This isn't based on my observation it's from some statistical site. I can't remember at the moment.I agree with the wish that the fight was more of a GOOD vs. EVIL one. I hate fighting races or individuals I have nothing against becasue of game mechanics. I literally have NO beef w/ taurens (lol) and no lore-reason at all to build a grudge towards them. Great article Mr. Rossi /bow U R Teh Lormeister. ;)

Dreyja, I suspect that the Warcraft universe is Blizzard's place where they get to say "there is no absolute good, and there is no absolute evil".On the other hand, the Diablo universe is where Blizzard gets to say "now this there, this is absolute evil". That might imply an absolute good. Maybe. But if you're looking for absolutes in Blizzard lore, that's the place to go.

Sadly, they're turning the Horde a little more evil every day. This is fine for the Alliance since it gives them the perfect excuse to kill hordies without feeling "guilty" for killing somebody that is as heroic as him/herself. I know many alliance players that do not invade Orgrimmar for respect to Thrall and what he represents (they don't hesitate to kill Sylvanas though).Many players play the Horde to be heroes, like in Warcraft 3. Others like the complexities of the world of warcraft factions because they're much like in the real life, and it's not as plain and simple as "good vs evil" like in LotR.Though now that Garrosh is taking control of the Horde, I foresee many transfers from Horde to Ally specially in RP realms.

I think you will find that Blood Elves outnumber all other Horde races on most servers.And on my own, the ratio is about 7:1, in favor of the Horde.
