I've long maintained Blizzard screwed up royally in not adding the Illidari as the third faction for Burning Crusade. Just think of the pure awesome that it would have entailed with the races being Blood Elves, Naga, Draenei (pre-retcon), and Satyr or Fel Orcs. I mean the pure awesome of the racial leaders being Illidan, Kael'thas, Lady Vashj, and Akama with Kargath thrown in if you had Fel Orcs? Jesus christ...sign me the fuck up!

It's funny...that has absolutely no appeal to me. I know a lot of people want to run around as the "bad guys" -- and I know that's probably what find some people drawn to the Horde (Though personally, I don't think they fit that description -- definitely a lot more savage / inhuman / brutal than the Alliance...but not evil- please don't flay me!!)Maybe it's silly, but I want to be one of the heroes of the story. I want to consider the moral choices I'm making (preferably not while having to sift through yet another poo quest) to advance a plotline...but at the end of the day, I want to see good (no matter what shade of grey it is) win. Enough bad things win in the real world all the time. I want to see good prevail somewhere. Even if it is just against internet dragons. :)

I agree with you.I have never wanted to play a villain. I play to be a hero and stop the evil from happening. An evil Faction holds no appeal to me at all.I don't see the Horde as evil. They are people with different goals than the Alliance, but still decent people. They have individuals that are good or obnoxious just like the Alliance does. The Forsaken walk the edge of evil and flirt with it...but not (generally) in a mindless raid boss kind of way.
