My gf played a BE, repeatedly saying "omg so pretty", so this argument has actually been flawed since BCs release.
Dec 9th 2009 4:05PM I voted down a "FOR THE HORDE" comment. But that's because this the person didn't really say anything else... it's irrelevant to the discussion. The comments section isn't a place for a popularity contest...
I thought the voting system was so that people could read the posts that were good and didn't have to go through pages and pages of text.

Nobody shouts "For the Alliance" because you'd probably get mocked for being lame or unoriginal...
Gnomes are my favorite race, and if anything, we are the true underdogs of Azeroth. Our god dam king sits outside the subway station like a bum, being destroyed by whichever Horde raid decides to wander through to kill Magi. Not to mention all the I love eating Gnomes + /punt jokes...
Horde players... Please stop making yourselves out to be the downtrodden ones.
Dec 9th 2009 9:27AM They're not generic archetypes in the sense that they've never really been playable in most other games. In most fantasy games Orcs and Trolls are just depicted as evil. Warcraft has one of the only stories that depict Orcs, Trolls and Undead as more than just your generic 'Bad Guys'.
Dec 9th 2009 9:12AM I mainly play Alliance, although I started off as horde and converted only because I had friends on another server. But after playing on Alliance for so long, I still have never had much Alliance pride.
Something about a general lack of organizations in BGs really pissed me off, but I realise these things are different on different battlegroups.
What does the overwhelming number of horde symbols say about the nature of horde players? Seems like the general consensus is that Horde players are more competitive... It may very well be that alliance players just don't really care as much as horde players about the 'competition'?
