@ClundgrenIt's not just Cata. Cata just made it more obvious. Let's take a step back in time.The Forsaken are seen developing a plague, with assistance players and some Tauren (probably Grimtotem) back in Vanilla and testing it on captured human prisoners. They also blatantly assault the npcs around Dalaran (wearing Dalaran tabards) and yet said city allows them into their city in Wrath. Basically all the quests in Hillsbrad involved Tarren Mill fucking up Southshore.In Arathi the Horde are clearly dominant with their questlines leading to the death of the heir to Stromgarde (who becomes a horde questgiver in Cata). These are just a few examples are these are events older players most likely remember. MoP is the FIRST xpac where the Alliance are basically well and truely fed up being the nice guys and shrugging off aggression for the sake of the "greater good". And without Jaina playing miss goody-goody you'll have an Alliance firmly behind the idea that enough is enough. Should the Alliance win out and out? No, the Horde aren't pussies (cept for them there Blood Elves) so they'll fight tooth and nail even if their warchief is turning into a gibbering idiot. Should the Alliance gain ascendency? This is trickier. The Alliance has been held back by the fact that they've never been all behind the idea of war, and the fact that it's basically a democracy holds it back. But it has been stated that the Alliance should they get 100% behind the war would have a technological and magical edge over the Horde. That and the fact that the Alliance is, as a whole, far more tightly knit than the Horde. The Forsaken and Belves view is that it's an alliance of necessity. And although people liked to cite that Sylvanas was really loyal to the Horde that is now in open debate.
