Oct 21st 2011 8:23AM Another year of the development team displaying ridicule and contempt for my chosen faction (GLORY TO THE ALLIANCE, DEATH TO THE HORDE... how is that for an Alliance battle cry Metzen, you flaming douche?).
Oct 20th 2011 12:24AM @Shrikesnest - I agree with most of that, save for one thing. Ignoring the developers bias against the Alliance does not mean that it does not exist. Hate to pee in your Cherrieos, but the developers (lead by the guy who spends most of his time on Thralls jock strap, Chris Metzen) showcase their bias against the Alliance every year at Blizcon. Want to see it in game?
Orc Jesus (dont give me crap about he is 'neutral'. Read the damn book)
Goblin starting area vs Worgen starting area
Goblin secondary leveling area vs Worgen secondary leveling area (which doesn't exist... its is the same as Night Elves).
Horde territory gains vs Alliance Territory gains since launch.
Horde cata experience vs alliance cata experience. (for example Twilight Highlands intro)
more time spent on development for horde than alliance (either that or they dump their crappiest developers on the alliance side)
Oct 19th 2011 5:53PM @Azizrael - Please... no Horde bias? You are worse than a kool-aid drinking 0bama-zombie. Just watch the videos of the developer panels and Q&A from last year and see the bias. Plus, Alliance hasn't been dominant since Warcraft II.
And as far as Thrall not being Horde only, go read Golden's Thrall book. Thrall's #2 concern after saving the whole world from destruction is serving the horde. Heck, even Stormwind's King Varian's lore is tied to being an orc slave.
Its almost to the point of souring me entirely on the whole Warcraft universe. I have paid my 15 bucks a month since just after launch and depending on how they do with SW:TOR, my money will probably be going elsewhere, baring a change in direction.
Oct 19th 2011 5:38PM If Blizzard gives Panderans to the horde, then I quit. We have had to suffer through Orc Jesus, Horde getting goblins and forgetting to work on Worgen, and Metzen in a full on hordegy of screwing over the alliance at ever turn.
Oct 19th 2011 5:35PM I predict more Horde bias from the developers and limited time placed on Alliance centric development.
Oh, and Metzen will still be a douche.
Oct 19th 2011 1:31AM Oh, look. More horde centric crap.
Oct 14th 2011 2:14PM Except for the mage set. They completely dropped the ball on it and gave it as much attention as they did the Alliance in Cataclysm... exactly 10% of what the spent on Horde.
Sep 21st 2011 11:11AM Finally, some sense concerning artificial gold sinks implemented by Blizzard. Now if only we could get them to read it and follow through.
Sep 21st 2011 10:47AM As long as they are on the same server, then you can just send those heirlooms through the mail to your toon in the opposite faction. If they are on different servers, well, I think that will probably be released with Mists of Panderia
Sep 21st 2011 10:44AM Friends don't let friends play Horde.
GLORY TO THE ALLIANCE! DEATH TO THE HORDE!
