You know what's great? After MoP, pandas will fade in darkness. A forgotten race, both in lore, and players.
I find that, the fact that the Pandaren were used in an April Fools Joke in WoW, most people simply don't bother to continue reading and discover that they did play a minor role in Warcraft 3. Hell, Goblins and Dwarves play less of a role in Warcraft 1 and 2 than Chen does in War3.
Oh, I may be on the side of the angels, but don't think for one second that I am one of them.
Seems op that this is nothing more then your opinion on what you don't manage to see as being part of wow because it doesn't suit your flavour, nothing more.
OP: holy mother of roleplay!
their culture is essentially different from the rest of azeroth. they've been separated from them since the sundering and didnt exactly interact on much of a level. they should BE like the rest of us. Plus their system of avoiding negative emotion is supported by the fact that old god remnants literally get empowered by it.
I remember reading an EXACT post like this when w3 came out about the night elves. same arguements used. Structurely the same points with a few words exchanged.
If i go to china i dont tell them they dont belong to the world cause they're different from the cultures most propagated.
I find it refreshing to find different cultures on azeroth, as a planet.
also the language used by OP is ridiculous. WE went into THEIR mists the VERY moment the mists stopped hiding them. We released the demons they had locked away and developed their entire life philosophy and culture around avoiding. We screwed up a working system they had running fine for 10,000.
I know you're RP-ing a version of "send the expansion back" but seriously, just say that then.

Nah the next expansion will include forced faction change. Because Blizzard are biased assholes, and only love the Horde. So obvious, it's not even funny.
Plus people keep talking about this the fight for "peace" not belonging in world of "WAR"craft. It belongs more than everything else combined. The fight for peace is MOST relevant and important when there is war. Why fight for peace during peaceful times? Know you try to gain peace when it isnt there.
War and peace go hand in hand. War always has an element where people fight for peace and understanding because War is all sorts of bull.
it would be very bland if everything was 100% WAR WAR WAR WAR. With everyone being a version of Garrosh and Varian.
And even objectively its a bad argument, because its understandable if everything was peaceful in warcraft. then you can say how is this happening in a game with War in its name. But that has never been there. Atmost tensions have been put down and simmered under the surface before an excuse is made and things escalate once more. theramores history is one example of this.
But what we do have is constant war now on many fronts, which has been building up worse and worse since wotlk (where in northrend we had orcs relishing slaughtering an army of alliance who were fighting undead, undead who then overwhelmed the orcs as well but the orcs still praised their own actions). With a comparative handful of people focusing on peace (anduin), staying neutral or focusing on the major problems to come (wrathion manipulating both sides to deal with future problems)

To each their own, I don't think faction favoritism is a thing. *shrugs*
