No trouble with it at all. I'd like to get to see the entire game, not just one side of it, and you really can't do that by just playing one side; no matter how hard I try, the Horde quest-givers won't stop attacking me long enough to tell me what they need. :PThe only issue for me is that, because I've been playing Alliance for years, it's hard for me to get characters going in the Horde because they don't have the resources. Or the guild. ^_^

Yes, this. Getting up the momentum to farm up a gold base to fund a new main and stable of alts, get heirlooms, and find a guild is definitely harder to achieve.

Very much agreed. I play Alliance, and most of that has been because that's where my RL friends were playing. I'd love to seriously play a Horde character, but I've got so much time and effort invested Alliance-side on two servers, that starting over on a completely different server in anything more than a passive way is really unappealing.

This. I like the lore of many Horde races, and I do have friends on both sides, but my high level characters are all Alliance, most of my friends are mostly Alliance, etc.I like seeing both sides of the game, and do love certain races (Tauren!), but it's just...bleh on Hordeside for me. I also dislike Forsaken, mostly due to my own distaste of undead and the blatant way the "evil!" gets pushed at times (though they are also just trying to survive by whatever means). It's taken me -months- to level an alt to 20 and I'm still not done with Silverpine--I mostly rolled it to see the remainder of the Worgen storyline, a fact which grates on me, honestly. There should be a way for both factions to see their own side of the story (like in some quests in Felwood I watched my roommate play through Hordeside while I did them Alliance).I also get lost in Orgrimmar, and the updates haven't helped that. I like the story and "feel" of my Alliance characters better--and I'm just bad at alting. I like being at least decent with my chosen characters' abilities, I like getting achievements but hate having to grind them all out individually again if I want something in particular, and frankly, I don't have the time--I need to start working on my Master's project soon! So I have 4 85s; my progression main healer, my 2 alts (a tank and a DPS) for backup/non-progress raiding and 5 mans--I am bad at multi-speccing too, and it gives me reason to play those alts--and my bank/gather alt who is only progressed as much as necessary to get herbs and ore with little fuss, and maybe go on silly old school runs now and then when the main 3 don't need anything. The rest are RP alts or seeing how a class works or I just don't have time/interest for--and Horde alts normally fit there, getting deleted or recustomed or rerolled to make room for new Alliance characters or to keep my login screen looking "neat."
