@lancrklrYour statements don't show contradictions in the Alliance. The plan was to allow civilians to escape when the destroyed the target. When most of the guards were away, it was seen as an opportunity to carry out the attack with less loss of life. Civilians were killed. Nobody denies this. However the deaths of civilians were not intended in the attack. Now of course we can consider that how the attack was carried out in the field was not the same as the plan made. However, in that case, the blame lies with those who disobeyed orders and attacked civilians. NOT with the General who gave orders to save lives.The problem with this quest is that Blizz seems to have wanted to create something which had both sides standing with their side. This is a good idea of course. The problem is it is not an issue of different interpretations, but different facts. Contradictory facts, not contradictory interpretations.It's almost like Blizz has four factions:1) A noble Alliance for Alliance players2) A noble Horde for Horde players3) A barbaric Alliance for Horde players4) A barbaric Horde for Alliance playersWhen you have this kind of difference in quests, you're going to have a huge mess based on the contradictory information... almost as if there were two coexisting alternate universes.It would have been better to do a sort of investigation quest similar to the Inn quest in Dustwallow, where we find the truth of what happened and who was really to blame.
