The funny thing is that by acknowledging that people will cry Horde favoritism, you are also acknowledging the Horde favoritism. And yes, I know that by me posting this, it also means that I'm seeing the favoritsm, which I do.

I see it as Thrall favoritism, actually, more so than Horde. Mostly because I don't feel Thrall is a good representation of the Horde. At all.

I bet 5 to 1 on horde favoritism too!

Mhm.That's like saying I know somebody who is a total insufferable racist, I see them coming, and my groaning "Oh great, this asshat's gonna start saying [bad thing] about [race]" means that I actually think/acknowledge said [bad thing] about said [race] is true.Yor logic is flawed. Nice try though.

I don't see Horde favoritism... I see how everything began with Ally favoritism. Jump into an AV and you'll see how the world started. Snowfall Graveyard cannot be taken by Horde first, it's geographically closer to the Ally base. The Horde bunkers can be taken without triggering the guards if you have stealth--not so the Ally design, click on the flag and you get shot full of arrows. The Ally base design is more defensible than the Horde base... that bridge can be brutal.Heck, even in AB--unless someone forgets to grab it, the stables will always be claimed a fraction of a second before the farm. It's just marginally closer. In Wrath, Stormwind got a huge new harbor... Orgrimmar was going to have a harbor but it was scrapped for a zeppelin tower in the time crunch.And really... I'm sure you could come up with counters to each of my arguments, proving that the bias is really more in the mind of the player than anything. We're programed to remember every injury clearly and positive experiences fade with time. This is an evolutionary function- It's more important to avoid leopards than to remember how to make a comfy bed... beds can't kill you.

@SwifteyeAcknowledge doesn't necessarily mean agree. Vegeto isn't saying you endorse Horde favoritism (and I'll see you in the battlefield if you do :D) but that you *acknowledge* it's existence.

Oh, you want to get into BG favoritism? How about all the times the countdown stage ended for my Alliance group with the Horde symbol.And why is it that the skinner/first aid/herbalist quest-giver at the Faire sent my Alliance characters off with "For the Horde"?

@byroniusYes, Vegeto *is* saying I acknowledge Horde favoritism, and I had thought my previous post made it clear why I thought that was incorrect. I would like to know WHY people think that:"acknowledging that the Alliance has an oft-proven tendency to cry 'Favoritism!' at the drop of a hat, particularly whenever Thrall is mentioned (AND HE IS MENTIONED EVERYWHERE BECAUSE CHRIS METZEN HAS A TOTAL MAN-CRUSH ON THE CHARACTER IN GENERAL, NOT JUST AS A HORDE LEADER)"="acknowledging that Horde favoritism actually and irrefutably exists"@SamLowryI would be willing to bet very good money that there are FAR more Human Male neutral questgivers in the game overall who spout "For the Alliance" at Horde characters, than there are any neutral NPCs who are likely to shout "For the Horde" at an Alliance member. That fact doesn't *bother* me, just putting it out there since you saw fit to bring it up.
