And Thrall is a terrible leader. Don't let the fact that Garrosh is an idiot make you ignore what a mess Thrall is:1) In order to "unify" the Horde, he dissolved the millennia-old Orcish tribes. Except, whoopsie, his own, the Frostwolves.2) He allows traitors and murderers to live in the middle of Orgrimmar and in Durotar so he can "keep an eye on them," although he never seems to actually move against them or use any of the intelligence to prevent future tragedies.3) He strikes alliances with other races that end up turning on the Horde repeatedly. And no, this isn't just about the undead: the LEADER of the blood elves -- the one whom Thrall made an alliance with -- turned on the Horde.He hasn't made the Horde safer; he's made it less safe. He hasn't made the Horde more prosperous; they still live like beggars in squalid huts. He hasn't even reclaimed the Orcish homeland for the orcs -- a goal well within reach -- nor driven the quillboar out of the lands of his closest allies, the Tauren.Thrall is inept at best and a fool at worst. But he's a nice guy and he's not Garrosh, so most Horde players think that makes him a great leader.
