i've been thinking, after reading some of the recent "what about X as warchief" threads. What about having 1 delegate from each race (pandaren, goblin, blood elf, tauren, troll, forsaken, orc) and making their decisions together?
Probably wouldn't work out. The biggest issue I see is that not every member of the Horde likes or works well with one another.
None of them trust the Forsaken, and the BEs don't really give too much of a damn about any of them really. Then there's the
strained relationship between Orcs and the Darkspear trolls thanks to Garrosh and Vol'jin's feud. Pandaren are still too new and
don't really know the history of their new allies. Tauren are the only ones who could possibly get along with everyone.
War council of other races? No.
War council of all Orcs, and maybe Vol'jin? Maybe.
Swag, swag, swag, swag, swag.
Woman I'm LORD of the rings.
Something like the Council of Six of Kirin Tor. Each race having a representative in the council, but there would still be a clear leader who draws the final line.
Now you see it. Now you don't.
A Council IS bound to happen, having a Warchief or not. Remember, the rebels are led by several members of different races.
Horde need a civil leader that build, instead of another war-forged fighter.
tbh it wouldn't surprise me.
Hell we already HAVE a council, leading the Blood Elves. I woulnd't be to shocked if Thrall (or hopefully ANY other Orc, but lets face it, it'll be Green Jesus), Vol'jin, Baine and possible Rommath.
Sylvanas would be left out because she's a bitch and will probably rebel next expac.
Gallywix is left out because he's a dick. He'll be allowed to run trades and stuff, but not given any REAL responsibility.
Ji Firepaw is left out because he's still to "neutral" Pandaren have't had enough time to really show their allegiance.
So that leaves an Orc (probably thrall), Vol'jin, Baine and Rommath. Tbh this is a pretty good mix and I could see them leading the Horde well.
Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face
I'd kind of want the "moderate" leaders to be representatives on it though, like Hamuul and Liadrin, representing the interests of their own racial leaders.
Council, approved by the Alliance since we're going to be the ones helping establish it -.-
Most people do not realize the talent and skill it requires to be in a top guild. Many of you think its only about time invested, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
Won't happen. The Orcs as a race need their warchief like Humans need their king.
And that Warchief will always end up being the primary figure among the Horde. Yes, this Warchief wont rule with an iron fist a'la Garrosh, but they will still be the go-to leader.
Why is everyone so obsessed with councils? It's maddening. The last thing the Horde needs is bureaucracy.

Keep a Warchief but the way the Horde is run has to change or else nothing will change and things DO need to change.
