On your (very interesting) discussion on solutions for the Alliance: what's the point? There were very good ideas voiced, but is it really realistic to expect Blizzard to suddenly change their development plans? No, they'll be conservative and keep churning away at their High King Varian and destruction of Theramore stuff. There's been nothing that indicates, to me at least, that Blizzard even understands the deep unhappiness they have created in fans towards how they've been treating the Alliance.I honestly don't expect a radical solution from Blizzard.

Yeah, I was listening to the ideas that were being told and thought to myself "What's the point?" There's already the Varian quesltine coming in MoP so they are continuing to shove him down our throat as Alliance Warchief, and with development so far along on it, there's no way they'll ditch it now. So we'll have at least one other entire expansion with the other Alliance races serving as, well, serving as nothing really, not even fodder for the humans. And call me cynical, but I just don't see the point in trying to make Blizzard take notice of why people don't like the Alliance story anymore. There have been numerous threads on both the official forums and fansites/blogs as this site as to why the Alliance story doesn't work and why Alliance players don't feel as invested as the Horde players in the storyline, and it's been going on for a long time. And how does Blizzard respond? Kosak puts out a blog post saying that the story is ever-evolving and that we are at a lull for the Alliance and then moves on to how awesome the Horde is.At this point, I've given up trying to make sense of why the Alliance does what it does and am just playing the game with my guildies and taking in the lore of the bosses that we kill and the lore of the raid instance we kill them in. The methodology, reasoning, and objective of the Alliance and all the races in it has firmly taken a backseat for me.

Agreed. There's too much to fix without time travel.

I think it's more about us hoping that Blizzard is (as they usually are) months ahead of our sympathies, so hopefully the story that has been planned is a reflection of our sentiments now and not 6 months ago, had the fans been accurately read correctly.

Thing is, we're not even getting a simple "Yes, the non-human Alliance races and non-druid Kaldorei will do things."Check out the CDev questions thread. EU side at least, we've had to use that thread to try and get answers to questions slightly more important than "What are the stone drakes?"
