As an Alliance player I've always wondered why the term brings about a "good guy" image? I realize that the "Alliance" has always stood for the "western powers" in the World Wars and any of us who live in those Alliance countries percieve that we are right and we must be good. Okay, I get that. But in reality, an Alliance does not mean "Good"...it means a bunch of factions that have aligned themselves with a common goal in mind.I do believe the Alliance in WoW is perceived as being the "good guys" more because we've been in self defense mode since the game started and have been forced into fighting back. The underdogs, if you will. We would appear to be the warm and fuzzies, maybe the goodie-two-shoes, of the game because of the position that we are in within the game. However, I can assure you that if you keep backing up a strong-willed society of people who enjoy their freedoms and "rights" to live their lives you will see a backlash, and a violent one at that."Wake up the sleeping giants"...wasn't that how it was phrased? I, for one, would like to just play my game in peace....enjoy my questing....help kill big bad monsters and leave the rest of the world of Azeroth to itself. But I will tell you this, if the Horde continues to impede on my homelands, kill my bretheren, and force me to do things I think is backing me into a corner, I will respond with complete and utter violence and I know many Alliance players that will do the same. We're willing to let the world go by without getting involved, but if the Horde wants us involved, then they may get more then they bargained for.Good luck. Leave our lands alone. Or suffer at the hands of the Alliance.
