The irony is that the majority of Horde players *hate* Garrosh as leader, even if he's more present in the world than Varian. Thrall was awesome, he protected the Horde against the Alliance's aggression, and then he was dumb enough to leave Garrosh in charge.Otherwise, Horde players would be pretty happy being left to their own devices, out of the limelight. Y'know, except the ones playing blood elves, or any race with competitive racials.The main reason to play the Horde is to feel independent, one who can do good as needed--save the world--but can also be survivalist (protect Kalimdor), traditionalist (maintain Troll customs, weird or ugly as they are), or just angry/twisted (goblins). It's too late to try to convince the playerbase that the Horde as it exists is actually evil, not just their leaders or the secretive Forsaken. But they seem to want to force the issue over time, which I'm pretty sure maybe 10% want.Maybe they want the Horde to be a direct parallel to the Sith?Anyway, just remember that the Horde doesn't think of Thrall as part of the Horde anymore. Even if he was super-important this expansion, he's abandoned his people, and that doesn't feel awesome. At the moment, discounting Thrall and Sylvanus (who's doing her own thing), the Horde has the short end of the stick leader-wise.
