All this Horde hatred you speak of certainly also backs up all that "Lothar fanboy" post you smacked the other day. Allies are also pretty messed up in some places: let's not forget Proudmoore and a lot of other horrible members of the Alliance that brought dirt to it. Alliance are not "the good guys" and the Horde aren't "the bad guys" (nor viceversa). We're just more agressive, maybe, because that's the culture our faction holds. We fight, we excel at that, culturally and historically so. Maybe Garrosh has made us more agressive, I admit (I personally can't stand the guy who brought down Cairne, who was pretty much my hero), but the Horde has always been about a brotherhood and sisterhood of sorts. One thing I have not felt as an ally has been that desire to win a battleground, to stop the other faction on their tracks and to earn a respect we never have been given because, to many in the Alliance, we are simply boorish monsters. Never have I felt more powerful than hearing a "Lok'tar Ogar", from a warrior like Saurfang, than I would be yelling "for Lothar" who, I admit, is an admirable hero but certainly not "the best" (I hold Uther and Tirion on a higher regard). We get things done because they NEED to get done. We fight for Azeroth because someone NEEDS to. The world NEEDS us to be strong, to be brave and to hold on. The Alliance also needs to be on the fight, but our political struggles (hatred in-between) just never let us soothe our need to fight one another instead of joining together. Not only our struggles, of course, but also the hand of many others who cannot stand Horde and Alliance together, for if we truly got that far, no evil force on Azeroth would bring us down. Not even the Old Gods. Not even Sargeras. Not even the Titans themselves. Hamuul and Malfurion have proven that we can fight together for a bigger cause. Even Vol'jin was humble enough to admit he needed to call on heroes of the Alliance as well as those of the Horde. Tholo and Anren are another example of true friendship between factions in times of war and need. Of course, if such antagonizing ends, no more World of Warcraft for us, heh. As far as I go, game-wise? Lok'tar ogar! Victory or death - it is these words that bind me to the Horde! Until the end of my (WoW) days, against any odds, I shall forever (or until my sub ends) be an instrument of my warchief's desire! For the Horde!

I look forward to someone smacking Malfurion over the head and gently reminding him of all the Hordies currently burning Ashenvale and could he please like....stop them ?
