"Blizzard has hinted pretty broadly that things are about to turn in the Alliance's favour."You mean like they did for the previous expansion?This isn't "swinging" back into the Horde's favor, it's some of the developer's (particularly Metzen's) Horde bias being let to run until someone finally slaps them and stops them.Thrall is literally one step away from being an Aspect. Despite being "neutral" now, he still clearly represents the Horde. The Horde are given these big quest chains that involve the overall plot of the expansion, while the Alliance get, what, a wedding party?And the "The entire previous expansion centered on the Alliance" excuse doesn't work. The Lich King was originally a Horde member. He joined with Arthas, and yes, the Alliance had a big part of that story. It was one of the main plot threads from WarCraft 3. But continously taking territory from the Alliance, and writing quests for the Alliance which equal to "You lost, go home", and not letting us do anything to prevent losses, ontop of being screwed out of story progression for almost the entire expansion is not equaling out the content.You guys have story development for each race. Blood Elves were the central focus of Burning Crusade, and Goblins get their own secondary city outside of a capital city.We have two races which have almost no story development. Draenei are told, literally, that their help isn't wanted on one of the first quest chains into Northrend, by a possessed army leader. Their story, as far as any development, had ended there.Worgen get dumped into Darnassus at level 13, and with the exception of one little town, their story ends there, and they are treated as Night Elves.The developers aren't evening up the content, they are doing the content for the stuff that interests them most.
