Yeah the Horde doesn't even seem to be for itself lately.It's more like "For Garrosh!"As a mainly alliance player i would like to interject one thing here.The game has been out for how long....7 years?And they're only NOW saying "hey...we need to get the Alliance a rallying cry too!"7 years....and only now?seriously :P What the eff lol

I'm still in favor of "Glory to the Alliance".one I think it just fits.Secondly I like the dev's explination that the horde's was "For the horde" because they're more primitive and the alliance is more cultured and elloquent so theirs can have more syllables.

Think: "longer then 7 years"For the Horde has been around since Warcraft 1, the Alliance has had several "slogans" that attempted the take the same place "For the Horde" has and they all subsequently failed (not being vicious enough, being too long, etc.):- "Grab your sword and fight the Horde"

I'm sorry but there is no way that this has just been some super hard problem that they haven't been able to tackle yet.i give blizz credit where they're due and they are often due much credit, but, this is one major ball dropped on their part. Not a super difficult problem, just something they haven't bothered with enough to actually fix it. It's a stupid catch phrase, they're not that hard.As I said, and they wonder why the faction favoritism thing has grown to such a head as it did in the wake of the last blizzcon and all that. it just comes off as....irresponsible for such a large corporate entity as they are.

@viciouspen: I would argue it isn't Blizzard's fault at all. They're right in saying that Blizzard has *tried*. The thing is, the playerbase didn't like them. If they playerbase wants one so badly, stop rejecting them or come up with one on your own.

I'm interested to see what good ol' Garry does in Mists. If (as I suspect he will) he is the major instigator of the war, launching a surprise offensive on the Alliance and showing little care for anything but conquest and battle, I suspect that Cairne and Lor'themar will object, Vol'jin will say "screw it", and Sylvanas will sneak in behind to collect the corpses (while staying out of the fight.) Of course, if everyone walks away from the Horde, Garry's going to call them traitors, and we may have the Orcs turning on their former allies.

To me, the answer is so simple...what is the one phrase *everyone* associates with playing in the Alliance? The one ideal that all members, regardless of class or creed can get behind?YOU NO TAKE CANDLE!!!!

Hmm, You No Take Candle!!! Hmm, that actually is pretty good! I rather shout that as a gnome than something about some human business. Heck, I rather use some dwarven battle cry than some Stormwind commité crap. But, You No Take Candle fits pretty well in my mouth... I can see myself shouting that while running out of the AB gates, or riding the SotA demos straight into a gate. It actually works in such situations much better than For Gnomeregan!
