Wow no Horde comments yet I can tell bc none of them have been down graded yet!! why would we want to have a valid debate?

Actually, several Horde comments. And the Horde commenters more or less agree: Tyrande needs to be allowed to shine on her own.

It is in the best interests of the Horde players that the Alliance gets to shine and have something more than just a constant parade of setbacks and losses; that way they have characters to hate instead of caricatures and they feel like they could actually *lose*. At present, the war is like a heavyweight boxer fighting a malnourished child--victory after victory for the Horde is only going to bring up two questions:1) Why haven't the Alliance been wiped out yet?2) How were they ever considered a threat?If the answer to either is "game mechanics", then that is a story failure.

Just saying the Aiding the Alliance has been Horde comments bad even when well thought out and presented. All responses are Blizz has Horde bias. When in reality the only thing keeping the Horde together under Garrosh is his military victories when these stop and they will, hopefully Blizz doesn't put all Horde characters back in interment camps or hiding. I believe that Cata was meant to wake up the Alliance, much like Mists will show the Horde that all out aggression only works when your winning. Garrosh is acting to much like Grom for the Horde to exist this way for long. His detractors in the Horde will move when the populace turns from him. Hopefully its not to late when they move against him. Personally I don't want to see Go'el return as Warchief his role as leader of the Earthen Ring is as important as Malfurion leading the Cenarion Circle/Expedition. The Horde needs to learn to stand without him.

@BlayzeThe Horde (read: the Orcs) are not attacking Alliance because they see a threat. They are attacking Alliance because the Alliance have something shiny to take. And because you aren't a real Orc warrior unless you fight and kill people as often as possible, preferebly all the time, preferebly PREFEREBLY by charging straight forward into their ranks.And victory after victory for the Horde is happening because the people that wear Horde t-shirts and yell "For the Horde!" at every opportunity wants it to be so.@wizlynjonstarThe Alliance IS awake. It's defending against the Horde everywhere. And even in some cases attacking. And in every region ultimately losing. Because they are weaker. And waste their numbers fighting other enemies which only makes it easier for the Horde to wipe them all out.Oh and why do people expect that Blizzard will give the Alliance any kind of victory against the Mighty Horde? Seriously? When did Blizzard give any official statement that that will EVER happen? All we've read/heard is this.1. Theramore will burn.2. It will always be unfair.3. It will get a lot worse for the Alliance.4. Varian will become the new High King. Alliance will need him because things will be so bad for them in the future. (Meaning things aren't so bad right now, compared to how they will be.)5. The Alliance Battlecry should be "have mercy", "we're trying" or "not the face".6. Chris Metzen's hands burned when he was wearing an Alliance t-shirt (and he was only wearing it as a prank).7. Maybe we should give the Alliance a nice symbol?8. For the Horde!!! (repeated a million times from Blizzard management each Blizzcon)What we have NEVER read/heard (but people keep thinking Blizzard is meaning anyway):1. Things will get bad for the Horde.2. The Alliance will take something from the Horde that they value.3. For the Alliance!!! (by any Blizzard manager or spokesperson that will not say For the Horde! before or after that).Seriously, how hard can it be to connect the two facts a) Blizzard loves the Horde much more (as evident by ANYONE that has ever been at Blizzcon or seen it streamed) and b) the Horde is winning everywhere and is much stronger, cooler, mightier and made of awesome?It's not exactly rocket science. ;-)

Thank you for making my point. All these things are resent sence Cata from Warcraft 2 thru Wraith you never heard Blizz had Horde bais. Why was that bc most of the player base was Alliance in one GM words "the good guys". After a growing rumbling for Horde players Blizz comes up with a great STORY driven way to let the Horde have the spotlight for 1 Xpac and much like the favored child when their sibling gets something they don't Alliance player constintly complain maybe all of you should boycott the game bc it worked so well when you whinny lil Allies did it for AV.
