    Yeeeeeah.. But there's a diffrence between battling eachother in game or harassing eachother in the chat system. Never forget that
    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.

    Just FYI, "For the Alliance" originated in Warcraft II (ironically, it was shouted by the High Elves, many of whom are now Blood Elves of the Horde).
    "For the Horde" only came in Warcraft III. So, "For the Alliance" is the original battlecry, and "For the Horde" is the ripoff.

    For the Horde sounds and is better, therefore, horde wins.

    Stick to Time-Warp if faction-bias is available.

    I still call it heroism, even after having switched to horde 4 years ago. People I encounter generally don't seem to care, save for the occasional "lol".

    That varies widely from person to person. It has nothing to do with the faction and I can't imagine you don't already know this.

    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.

    Yes.

    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.

  12. #72
    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.

    Fucktarded bullshit. Since when mature player would prefer emo angry animal races over straight protagonists? Only if you're stuck in your teen rebelious age forever.

    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!

    Hehehe. I've played for almost seven years, been Horde a bit over a year, and I still call it Heroism. Time Warp would be a good cover up if our mage ever showed up to raid. :P

    OP, on my server the alliance sit on top of the Horde Shrine in valley and nuke us as we come out. They have done this since launch.


    I'm sorry people hurt your feelings with mean comments.

    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.

    Before you write something on the internet, ask yourself this: Would I say this with these words to someone I met face to face?
    If not, then DON'T WRITE what you initially planned to. You are NOT anonymous on the internet, and there are laws that can cost you if you threaten, backtalk or harass someone else. You know nothing about the other person, so don't act like you do. Be humble, be polite, be a decent human being...or at least do your best, even though it can be difficult.

    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?!?

    Ha. I feel weird with my Shaman. I look for the Bloodlust button every time I want to use..... BL. I can't even call it..... heroism (that was hard to get out), because it just doesn't suit the nature of the spell. You 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. If that's not Blood Lust, I don't know what is. Time warp is just..... no. Blood Lust! RAWRRAWRRAWRRAWRRAWR!

    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.

    Same here, I play both sides, though I'm mostly Alliance because that's who I raid with regularly. I don't see a lot of hostility either way. The only thing I see slightly more, is that the Horde side still believes all the Alliance players are 12 year olds. If you saw each side's trade chat though, the irony of it would be fairly funny.

    You 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
    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!" mindset
