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.
"For the Horde" only came in Warcraft III. So, "For the Alliance" is the original battlecry, and "For the Horde" is the ripoff.
That being said, GOOD, I wish the Horde vs Alliance rivalry felt stronger. Back when I was a little nooblet it felt like factions meant more and I loved it. It's too bad I moved to a care bear server recently.
It would be so much better if the factions only counted in cities but if you were in the world anything is game, ie. U could attack and kill horde and alliance. It so boring not being able to attack people in ur own faction.
And here I am feeling the the factions have come closer together over the years... When me and my friends meet new people gaming/IRL who is of the opposing faction with their Mains we inevitably ends up speaking of recruiting one another.
WoD looked too good to not come back for.
Because Alliance need to die.
I've played and raided properly on both sides, I play Horde atm because of the people I am playing with, but in the end I don't really care.
I have known some Horde players who despise the alliance and can't ever imagine why anyone would play them and won't even talk normally to anyone who likes alliance.
To answer your question, people are just weird.
Gnomes however, suck. But so do Goblins.
well, its anecdotal so /thread
If it really was true, just assuming, it could be faction based. After all horde are the bad guys, compared to alliance.
People willingly playing the bad guys are somewhat special and so it wouldnt surprise me if your statement actually was true.
I would guess in most cases, this would be true on a PvP realm which is why they used to require you to play only one faction on that realm. It was YEARS before you could roll both factions on a PvP world. In these cases you were Horde or you were Alliance. No one was both, cause no one liked a double agent Some players still subscribe to a heavy division. There are no real numbers about who only plays a specific faction anymore as most of the community has at least tried 1 character from both sides.

Yeah, what a SURPRISE!, there's lots of Alliance in poor Hordies face because you're in Alliance lands in first place!

i think its just more so in the fun of things.
on a slightly related topic i just broke the balance of my server's carebear society:
saw a horde try and kill mr nanners. tauren warrior, got obliterated by going bananas. i signed on horde told him id help im the alliance druid next to him. i had him tag it, then everytime hed go bananas the tauren would run out and id root nanners. the guy got his kill got the whistle and was utterly flabbergasted at what i did lol.
thanks ROKAP for the awesome sig!
Because prepubescent boys are insecure and want to feel badass? They're obviously on both sides, but one can't deny that the Horde attracts more of the kids needing to feel badass and cool.
I play both factions and I've never had any hostile comments from Alliance players, whilst on Horde side it's a constant display of badassery from people about the Alliance and people playing that faction. My main is Alliance and I got kicked out of a guild on my alt for just casually answering a question about my other toons.
I so rarely encounter well behaved horde players that when I do, I'm completely baffled...like yesterday when a level 51 mage began nuking my level 41 pandaren, but then stopped as I didn't fight back, did a /hello and left...I stood in disbelief.

World of Warcraft: 14 level 90s, main being Rorcanna the hunter. 5 years and still having fun! Currently unable to play due to technical issues.
Guild Wars 2: Level 70 ranger, mothballed. For an mmo it fails to keep me motivated big time.
Console: PS3 and soon PS4, Red Dead Redemption being the all-time fav console game.
At a guess, probably because Alliance are predominantly played by pre-pubescent teens whilst the Horde are played by post-pubescent men (boys) who have not and are not getting laid, resulting in angst toward the Alliance.
Edit: Why do you care? Why even tell anyone you play the opposite faction? Regardless of if they care or not? Do you log on and jump in trade to exclaim you have just logged of your other factions toon? If so why? Stop?!? End of drama?!?
And back OT.
Both factions do it. No doubts there. I've had it happen to me, when admitting I was Horde on my Alliance toon, and I've seen it happen on my server while I'm Horde. On a PvP server it's understandable, you might get some comments since you're one of the red health bar team who at some point or another they've had to avoid or attempt to bring to zero, but a lot of the ribbing is merely sarcastic and meant in jest. Getting help from trade chat, even if they don't know you main as the opposite faction, is like trying to wring water from granite.

Now I see it the other way, You fighting. You might be down trodden, weary, tired. Suddenly you hear a majestic battle cry and you're strength is renewed, your will to fight harder is fortified. I will agree the sound for Bloodlust does go well with the "going ape shit crazy!" mindsetYou aren't heroic for hitting something faster, you're going ape shit on something you want to kill that wants to kill you in turn
