The first time the Alliance does something morally reprehensible, or specifically target civilians or does anything that could be called "evil" the Alliance fanbase will be in a uproar that Blizzard is turning the Alliance into the Horde and players who like the "goody-guyness" of the Alliance will get upset. The Alliance players lose what moral high ground they have while the Horde players will just continue to point to that, like they do constantly with Camp Taurajo and say that the Alliance is just as bad as the Horde or even worse.C'mon, they promised that the worgen were going to be a dark/forsaken type race that makes the Alliance edgier and we ended up with carbon copies of night elves who do everything they can to avoid war outside of Gilneas and want to protect sacred forests and all that. It doesn't fit with the Alliance's kit to havce a darker, more mroally ambigious race and how they've been presented, so they had to change to fit in with the "goodness" that is the Alliance.I'd love for the Alliance to take the glove offs. And they have had plenty of chances and they all get whitewashed.Maybe MoP will change things, maybe turning Jaina into a warmonger that wants to drink the blood of the orcs over what they did to Theremore will change things. But while the Horde can get away with doing such things, the Alliance cannot due to the nature of what they are all about.But let's see what happens in MoP...

I think you've seriously underestimated what the average Alliance player, the ones who've been paying attention to the dismal state of Allied leadership, want to see. We know that the razing of Theramore is coming, and we are sick to death of ineffectual responses... Or total lack of *any* response! Most of the ones I know won't bat an eye at the gloves coming off.
