    Which faction is your favorite?

    There's a lot of divide round these parts about which is the superior faction. I wanna hear from my favorite segment of the community. Lets hear your inner fanboy.

    ::ahem::

    GNOME 4 LYFE

    EDIT: Stupid poll, has Horde as a blue bar and Alliance as red. >.<

    Well if alliance didn't have gnomes there'd be no reason at all to play it. Horde have forsaken, belf, orc, troll, goblin and Garrosh.

    Edit: Voted horde of course.

    Sadly, there is no both option.

    I prefer to take the gold from both sides.

    It's becoming hard to tell them apart. Several of the Horde races are just dispossessed Alliance, most new cities turned out to be Alliance capitals with Horde ghettos shoehorned into the back, and even end-game raid bosses were renegade Alliance on power trips before their final defeat and redemption. We flew the Horde banner, but we were playing Alliance characters, living in Alliance cities, and were steeped in Alliance lore. I moved from a Horde server to an Alliance server and really don't notice much difference (aside from the tears).

    Horde @ heart.

    I feel like the next patch will give us Horde lovers some redemption, but only a little bit in the form of lore. I was extremely disappointed in the Cata expac, lore wise. Wrath, to me, was much fuller and there was all around more tension. I am hoping the next pack will give the Horde some ammunition and really dig deeply into Garrosh/Jaina.

    I started out Alliance, though. Moved Horde due to just wanting to check it out and glad I did. I prefer most of the Ally classes, to be honest, but I can be a belf all day long. I got cool hairz.

    Hrm, I won't answer; because, while I started with my old romantic self as an alliance mage, I later realized it's more technical than that and I had to go to horde at some point.

    It was good because I realized most of that is artificial. It's the same people just on different positions on the 'game machine'. Of course there is some divide; due to the more 'romantic' feel that alliance gives, it tends to collect less aggressive pvpers so it tends to have a reputation that horde is better at that. But that's largely a myth to be honest; it's a tiny effect and I know good players on both factions. If only one looks at the world first guilds, they are in both sides.

    I want Garrosh to quit this whiny, gnome-loving new age Horde and join Burning Legion to put an end to this miserable universe.

    Seriously, the way Garrosh was handled is ridiculous. He's the leader Horde should have -- a bloodthirsty warmonger, who wants Horde to overcome Alliance, instead of signing treaties with them and chasing Jaina's skirt. Kill all humans, elves, gnomes, dwarves, spacegoats, furries and bathe in their blood. Kill all bloody pandas too. Kill everyone. Crush. Destroy. Obliterate. Rule all that remains. That's the spirit Horde should have and that's the way it's meant to be.

    But bloody hell, a bunch of whiny *censored* doesn't like that, now Blizzard is going to kill him off and bring Gary Sue Thrall back. "We'll put "war" back into "warcraft"" my ass. "Let's make Horde be more like Alliance but with orcs", that's what it's going to be.

    I don't like that because I like realism. Yes, it's a fantasy game but I still want it to reflect reality when it gets to sociological traits.

    A "pure evil" faction does not exist in the real world. It's pure fantasy. Even what history often teaches us about "pure evil" people one doesn't have to dig deep to realize they may have had a childhood that brought them there or their followers might not have been so homogeneous or some people are just born psychopaths (clinically) and that doesn't mean their followers believe them or that their regime is stable.

    A "pure evil" person imploding due to his own people is very realistic sociologically and politically.
