    Because the legion will faceroll you if you don't. And Garrosh would just end up taking control of the horde and bomb more of your cities. And I am more willing to let him do it if the Alliance are filled with people like you...try doing things for the 'Greater good'. If you don't help us, the humans will end up dieing themselves. The moral story of mop is suppose to understand that the fighting of horde vs alliance is stupid.

    He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.~Nietzsche

    Edit: After this all the sensible Orcs will be part of the good horde and the bad ones will end up dieing for their leader. So essentially we will be just cleaning house:}.

    Don't go to war at 90? What if they're a burden on the battlefield? I guess there's a reason we don't send our old people to war.

    It's not really a sacrifice when you're old. But even if you're young, it's better to flee from a losing battle than to fight til you die. Because at least you'll get another chance at winning. That might not always be possible on the battlefield, but in certain one-on-one situations it could be an option. Yet an orc will always see that as cowardice, which to me is stupid.

    Warriors who can only fight, can still train the young, or at least pass on some of their knowledge.

    But we are not Orcs.

    For them, it is better to die in battle than to die of sickness or old age

    Did you even get my point? I never said orcs are always evil. I did not ask for any kind of genocide. I just ask why do we specially need orcs to fight the legion? What is so special about them? Why would being able to figth legion be their redeeming factor in the eyes of other races? Why would legion faceroll if they are defeated and scattered like trolls or centaurs? This thing looks like an immunity card.

In Icecrown the orcs were vile enough to attack the back of an Alliance army that was fighting the Scourge and was about to win the battle - until the orcs ensured that the day was lost, for both of them.
    That's actually a pretty good example backing up what Trassk said. Those orcs were battle-driven, nobody was there to tell them not to fucking do it(their commander condoned the deed afterwards, but yeah, he didn't order it). Even Garrosh was furious about it, as seen in Heart of War.

    But like I said, they're probably a burden on the battlefield, if they're so old.

    Because lorewise the bulk of the horde is orcs, just like the bulk of the alliance is human. Chop out the orcs, and the alliance will roflstomp the other hordes that remain, after which all of Azeroth falls before the legion.

    ight
    Well from what I understand, The Legion is too powerful for anyone one race or faction to handle alone, so apprantly thats why we "need" each other

    yes....they are going off to die

    Its not like Orcs have grand strategies that could be ruined because they have a buncha old people with them
    Orc generally just charge in and hack apart whatever they see

    Orcs live for battle

    The worst kind of Orc is a bored Orc so when the burning legion arrives you will want azeroths best warriors at your side

    Thanks to PVP there will never be real cooperation between the horde and the alliance but seeing that mop cutscene where the human hands his pike to the orc to face a common enemy sums it up perfectly why you want the save the orcs

  11. #51
    The orcs need no salvation, if you oppose them you are in grave danger!
    Throughout lore we see this.
    Cennarius dared to kill Warsong Offensive, he got burned to the ground!
    Manoroth tried to play the manipulator.... well he played with fire. If green Grom Hellscream kileld him.. imagine what FEL Grom Hellscream would do to him if they would reach a disagreement.

    Gul'dan was laying panic across the field in many races, Velen had to hide and run at the sight of such a powerful foe.

    And if you ask me if Gul'dan would realise sooner that is manipulated by Kil'jaedan or Archimonde, i dont think those 2 would dare to stand mano a mano with him. (Yeah i know you guys think Kil'jaedan or Archimonde are great.. but they are not.. SEE GUL'DAN apocalyptic acts, and see how many times Archimonde and Kil'jaedan have failed, Kil'jaedan tought him what he knows? The coach is not always better than the champion! we have examples.... Its about potential!).

    but he is also wearing demon tusks, holding onto demon artifacts has corrupted many people so his using them in his armour is most likely the thing affecting him, also if it is demons it leads nicely to the legion coming.

I am asking this because this is the most common excuse. !We need to be together at all costs or the legion will win! We never give this reasoning to all the other races that alliance and horde attack and destroy, we don't try to unite with them. We don't think about legion's coming when we invade and steal their lands. We kill them all for even smaller offences. We don't mostly try to look for goodness in these 'evil' races,but orcs are all forgiven because of thrall and some few.

    And that is why i think that Siege of Orgrimmar should be presented as a blow to orcish aggressive mentality and remind them they are not always be gonna be tolerated and they are not irreplaceable. They should see their ideals crushed. Not just heroic rebels saving the city from a tyrant.
    because during the battle for mt hyjal it took the combined efforts of the horde and the alliance to even slow down the legion. and to be honest not even us combined can stop the legion ever no one can stop the legion not us not the old gods not the titans no one because the tides of demons are overwhelming and constantly multiplying at best we can manage to drive them back and seal them off before they come in full force.

    To answer the OP's question, it's because Blizzard storytelling is, and always has been, dictated by game mechanics. The game isn't built around the lore, the lore is built around the game. It's the reason why many plots in WoW are paper-thin, and also the reason why factions in WoW get away with so many evil things.

    ummm how about no? archimonde and kj were empowered by sargeras himself one of the most powerful beings in the universe and hand picked by him to lead his armies.

    saying some orc is stronger then them because he cut off his ties to shamanic magic and opened a shitload of portals is kind of fullblown retarded. also you do know how he died right? a bunch of crazy demons ate him, archimonde and kj are the most powerful of all the demons.

    also.. how many times theyve failed? umm how about two times in the last say 25,000 years. THEY ONLY FAILED TO DESTROY A PLANET TWICE IN 25,000 YEARS. they have personally destroyed thousands upon thousands of worlds and species and their armies span thousands of planets.

    do you not know anything about the lore?

    Orcs aren't the only ones who have gotten a second chance. The forsaken is a second chance in itself
