    Not when they jump on an alt on your side, then you try to convert them.

    "Most"? Seriously? Like...you talked to 4 million players? And 2.5 million were hostile? Or how many did you REALLY talk to and now just make a sweeping generalization?

    Since I play both Ally and Horde and my Horde friends know I have Ally chars I cannot confirm your observations.

    Because people are like that.

    Most that he encounters. It's not that hard to understand. Aggressive responces like yours only go to prove him right.

    Because when I see you Alliance bumbling around in front of me acting like you don't have a care in the world it's like waving a steak in front of a hungry dog.

    Well I have been playing since launch and I have raided end game content on both sides. In my experience it seemed like there was a lot of younger players that played alliance and were generally annoying.

    Also anyone who follows lore knows you are all racist.

    this is actually so true, and exactly what tides of war makes alliance seem like

    Becuase "For the Horde" is something they seem to be proud of. "For the Alliance" is just a wanna-be-horde thing, it's not the same lol.

    This kind of behavior occurs on both of the factions, let it be 'aggressive' or 'passive' such as the situations you described in your post. I'd call it rather silly to think that all or even a notably large margin acts negatively to ones choice of faction, let it be Alliance or Horde.
    That being said, there are also people on both of the factions that indeed have a hostile attitude to their counterparts. I'll make a risky statement and claim that these sorts of personalities go pretty evenly between the two factions.

    In this situation OP, you just stumbled upon Horde players that do, in fact, think that Alliance and the people who favors this faction are scum and should be scolded as the scum they are. Same goes for the Alliance players, these people just didn't really have an interest in the matter.
    Pure "luck" in terms of player personalities you encountered. This situation could have been totally upside down: The Horde players could have been the ones that don't really care whereas the Alliance could have been the one to act negatively, bashing and so forth.

    I'm pretty sure "most" Horde players don't give a damn, and most of the ones who seem to probably don't either beyond tweaking or trolling you a bit.

On Horde side, if I mention I have an Alliance character, I get some of the most vulgar responses ever, to the point that I simply start reporting people. I mean, I can understand a healthy support for your faction and all, but some of the responses I've received are just...well, ridiculous is putting it lightly.
    lol you say, a lot of times they'll ask you to spy for them as they get ready to raid towns or do Sha or whatever, then wonder why horde would consider you a traitor when you have just said alli asked you to spy for them so they can kill raid bosses (including horde faction leader), the amount of times on my server that alli alts have messed with horde galleon pulls until alliance can get numbers together, is it any wonder we hate traitors who are mostly only horde to screw with us and give more advantage to the alliance who already greatly outnumber us

    I hate horde too, and gank, kill or mutilate them every chance i get anywhere, but it is PART of the game, and it suppossed to be. I don't actually want people who in RL play horde any harm or whatever, but in the game, I think its common to let loose.
    If at first choice is given, and then it was taken away, then it was never really a choice to begin with, similarly the same can be said true for any kind of rights or freedoms, these can never be privileges bestowed upon the few and denied to the many for it is a practice of tyranny. Never trust any man who feels you should beg nor ask to be treated fairly or to be respected.

    The hostility is because the Horde and Alliance are at war.

    Enough with bashing eachother, guys.. This community is still young and needs to grow up and show that not everyone are jerks. We're gamers and we enjoy games, don't bash eachother over what games they like or their oppinions, but don't let them bash others either. We need to come together and stand up, as a community, and help eachother out by being respectful and understanding. Please.

    Try being in a position of leadership or guidance, no matter how small, on the Horde side after having been Alliance for years after years.
