Dec 9th 2009 9:23AM I don't know why everyone seems to hate the Draenei so much. I've always seen them as a wonderful, peaceful race who has seen a lot of suffering but still regards all peoples with fairness and equality. The fact that Velen steps forwards to cleanse the Sunwell and redeem the Blood Elf people even though the elves have been slaughtering their people since before they even reached Azeroth, seems to be an incredibly noble thing to do. They're not perfect people, as demonstrated by their prejudice towards the orcs, but their openness and willingness to consider each individual without clouded judgment has always resonated with me.
Dec 9th 2009 9:18AM I have Alliance pride.. in private. I feel that if I show Alliance pride in a public space, people are just going to call me a 12 year old boy and treat me like I have brain damage. Just because I don't play the 'tough' and 'counterculture' Horde doesn't mean I'm some kind of lesser person.
Sure, there's some truth behind the little kids on Alliance thing, but you find those on both sides. I'm proud of the Alliance from a lore standpoint. Sure, Varian's kind of a retard sometimes, but I feel there's a certain nobility and quiet pride of the humans, Draenei, etc; something the Horde doesn't have. The Horde seems to be the 'louder' of the two sides, what with their battlecries and their portrayal as ruthless and bloodthirsty in the Warcraft media. Makes sense that people who prefer a more forthright and vocal outlook on life would choose the similar side, and therefore have a natural instinct to be more vocal about their support.
The difference, I think, is best illustrated in our two Shaman spells: Bloodlust vs. Heroism. I like the noise heroism makes over bloodlust; it's like a bunch of soldiers putting their weapons together and cheering as they muster their strength to take down a foe 'together'. Bloodlust just kind of sounds like an individual orc going on a rampage.
Dec 8th 2009 6:25PM I have rephrased your question to better illustrate its faults:
"If Blizz wants people to go to Blizzcon, then make it a requirement. Otherwise, don't give out gifts just because people went to Blizzcon."

Dec 8th 2009 6:21PM I'm sorry, but "I don't use keychains" has got to be the most flat-out retarded excuse I have heard all night. You sir, win.
I don't really use keychains either, but there's nothing stopping me from keeping my authenticator safe on my desk at home.
Dec 8th 2009 5:58PM The page doesn't seem to want to load for me. Anyone else having problems connecting?
Dec 8th 2009 4:17PM If this is true, that just made the authenticator the best 5$ I ever spent. [again]
That would make sense though. Core"hound"... hound == dog == watchdog? Authenticator protects your account?
Dec 8th 2009 9:23AM This was probably my favourite one yet. :D
Great work with it. It sounded just like Rakjak in game.
Dec 6th 2009 4:43PM I wear that on my male Draenei all the time.
He is so purdy.
