I have a macro "FOR THE HORDE!!...erm.....I mean......FOR STORMWIND!" on my human rogue. I've played to 85 on both sides, and really at this point, there is no "faction" unity. Hell, the "banner" race for the Alliance has an ability called "Every Man for Himself". That's the rallying cry now - "FOR ME! unlesseverythingsbeingdestroyedandeventhen FOR ME!". From a lore standpoint we're killing Deathwing to save the world, not to save the Horde or the Alliance specifically. From a gameplay standpoint, we're doing it for one of two reasons - for loot, or for bragging rights. Right now, in PVP, I could care less who it is I'm backstabbing, as long as I get an HK for it. If that red name happens to be from my own team, oh well, he's going down.

I'm not sure how the humans having a racial ability which refers to their race is some sort of commentary on a lack of cohesiveness in the Alliance or a cry of selfishness from the human race - that is simply what one of their racials is called. It's like saying The Human Spirit (another human racial) downplays some kind of Alliance spirit or Will of the Forsaken de-powers the Horde by empowering the Forsaken - it doesn't and neither of those abilities have anything to do with faction unity, either.

"Wait, guys, I'm just mindcontro-""EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF! ... Hey, why didn't I get honor for that kill?"
