Some of you folks have some serious video game butt hurt going on...Its a game. They've got to keep playing both sides off against each other to keep the dynamic going. But its the same players on both sides - and all the 'this and that' is in the lore to keep us engaged.Seriously, how can you take it personal 'out of game' when its all just something a pack of writers over in cubicle farm C came up with at Blizzard to keep up paying $14.95/month.If you play Horde, they're plots and stories are going to make them seem very much tragic heroes being unjustly persecuted by xenophobic Alliance races. You've been cast aside, forsaken by your own brethren for the curse put on you, enslaved by demonic forces and only freed by the strength of your heroes; all you want is a homeland to be free in, but all around enemies mass to wipe you out, enslave you, or send you back to the grave.If you play Alliance, they're plots and stories are going to make it feel like you're in a world overrun with horrors at every side destroying your lands and people, and massing a great army at your doorstep to wipe you out.- This is called "Good writing".Blizzard has managed to make both sides look like heroes from their own point of view. And make both sides look like villains when seen from the other side's point of view.Again, that's just good writing.It lets us players connect to our toons as characters.But seriously folks... its just a game.
