Aug 19th 2011 9:42AM @RealityCheck2011 Are... you being serious? You have to be a troll. It's the only explanation. How can something as simple as being able to talk with your friends online while you all play whatever game you want a bad thing?

lol what? Really? The game didn't even have sound.
Aug 21st 2009 4:34PM Total doesn't add up. 45 for Horde. 44 for Alliance.
May 27th 2009 3:56PM The Horde have been the aggressors from the beginning.
One wonders, for example, why Theramore retains a neutral treaty with the Horde in light of attacks upon their territory. Low level barrens quests anyone? And when you get into Duskwallow Marsh, there are quests to kill Theramore scouts and guards. Only Jaina's foolishness has allowed these attacks to go on without any response.

"Blackmoore found Thrall with the boides of his murdered parents. Care to take a guess who murdered them? (Hint: Alliance)"
Actually, his parents were killed by Orcs sent by the Shadow Council.
Quoted from WowWiki
"Doomhammer had, by this time, assassinated Blackhand and become the Warchief of the Horde, and welcomed Durotan and Draka into his encampment. Durotan explained what he knew - about Gul'dan, the Shadow Council, the demonic bargain. Doomhammer vowed that he would stand at Durotan's side as they confronted Gul'dan with his crimes, but - for the good of his warriors and Durotan as well - he had to send them away to what he thought was a safe place. It was found out later that several of Doomhammer's warriors had been Gul'dan's spies...and one of them had accompanied Durotan and Draka to their "safe haven".
The treacherous guard had summoned assassins to kill the Frostwolf chieftain and his mate. Though he managed to kill at least one of them, Durotan was too severely wounded to continue. His arms sliced off to prevent him from holding his child again, Durotan died slowly as the lifeblood drained out of him, the last thought in his mind being a sense of relief that he would not see his son torn apart by the creatures of the forest. "
Feb 2nd 2009 11:20AM To me, there is one defining moment in the history of the "New Horde" that tells me that they are no different than the old Horde. Specifically, the mission in the Orc Campaign of Warcraft III called "Cry of the Warsong". Quoted from the Wiki:
"Suddenly, they stumble upon Grom Hellscream and his Warsong Clan battling a group of humans. Thrall and his warriors rush to Hellscream's aid and the orcs defeat the humans. After the battle, Grom tells Thrall that the humans, led by a "frail girl", have blockaded the passage to Stonetalon Peak. Thrall decides that they should look for a means to bypass the humans. He orders Grom to leave the humans alone for the time being.
Grom returns to his camp while Thrall constructs his own base. A short time later, a troll scout reports that there is a nearby Goblin Laboratory selling Zeppelins. If they can acquire the Zeppelins, the orcs will be able to fly past the human forces. However, as Thrall makes preparations to secure the Zeppelins, Grom gives into his bloodlust and starts attacking the humans. The humans launch a counterattack against the orcs forcing Thrall to fight back.
Despite having achieved his goal, Thrall is greatly upset. Many lives have been lost in a battle that could have been avoided. Thrall confronts Grom and angrily rebukes him for disobeying orders. Grom is defiant at first, but then backs down and apologizes for his disobedience. Thrall, however, is not convinced that Grom can control his bloodlust. He orders Grom to take his clan to the northern forests and construct a settlement while the rest of the Horde seeks out the Oracle."
So, basically, Thrall tells Grom to leave the humans alone who got to Kalimdor BEFORE the Horde. Grom attacks the Humans. Despite this, Thrall HELPS Grom kill the Human forces. Then he sends Grom off to Ashenvale, where Grom proceeds to unleash even more destruction upon the Night Elves.
Ultimately, Jaina helps the Horde against her own father, unlike Thrall, who sided with his own kind against the Humans. The Humans were the ones willing to reach out and help the Horde against their own.
Because of that, I will forever be with the Alliance, and King Wrynn is a true hero.
Aug 14th 2008 6:47PM That spirit of redemption glyph will get a nerf. Can you imagine how overpowered that would be in arena? Spamming CoH in arena will be just as effective and 20% chance over 6-7 global cooldowns isn't that unlikely.
Mar 23rd 2008 11:48AM Congradulations. You split the Alliance vote in half and hand it to the Horde players without any contest.
WoW Insider isn't Horde biased at all. No, really, not at all.
