    Horde, specifically Forsaken because I always choose the most monstrous looking race I can. Undercity is dark and quite honestly my favorite city next to Stormwind or the Gilneas capital (name escapes my mind). The abominations, the music, Sylvanas, (at the time) the Dreadlord, the flying bats, and it had the coolest place for magic classes (specifically Warlocks) so I felt so happy there. Tirsifal Glades is also very nice looking to me.

    I also played Undead in WC3 so they were a favorite from then. They can hold their breath underwater which is very cool (redundant for a warlock but still), they can eat people, and they just aesthetically look cool to me. Also their dance and laugh is amazing. If I ever wanted to look normal, I had the blood elf orb :3

    Also because Forsaken are the superior race and they will blight nuke everyone, starting with the disgusting creatures known as Gnomes, followed by the delicious tasting Tauren steak beasts.

    I started as Horde because it seemed more badass, and had cooler races.

    I eventually began playing Alliance primarily because that's where my friends were, but I still play Horde and it's still my favourite faction.

    Me and my friends picked Horde, because orcs, bullmen, troll and walking intelligent corpses are not your ordinary fantasy races to play, where as the Alliance was almost exactly that.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    Alliance-

    I love everything Elven, so when I first started the game up and saw the Night Elf running through the woods and turning into a panther.. I was hooked, I had zero clue about warcraft so had zero clue about factions and stuff, I just wanted to play a female Elf that could turn into animals.

    Never regretted my choice

    Alliance because my real life friend who got me into the game was playing alliance. Also because dwarves are awesome.

    I am both.

    Though, my first choice was Horde. Because they were less ugly than the Alliance.

    Melee isn't awful for Challenge Modes; you are. Melee players are a liability for the windows of time in which a tank keeps an enemy mob faced towards them, resulting in an exorbitant loss of damage or death. Melee players are a liability for people who keep rooting mobs next to them. Melee are a liability to a healer that cannot heal.

    Horde because my friend that got me started in WoW long ago recommended I make a Tauren. I have stayed on the Horde ever since.

    Also, Hordies are seen as "cooler" in my opinion. Plus my family plays Horde. I want to stick with them.

    I did play Alliance for a little bit, but I faction-changed over to Horde after a year or so.

    not sure why you'd only play 1 side

    you are missing out on like half the game by not playing the other side and seeing their quests and storyline

    You don't have to pity them though. I played Forsaken along side my Night Elves for a while, then realised I enjoyed returning undead to the dirt where they belong just as much as I enjoyed playing the few toons I had, knowing their story didn't change that.

    My 1st char ever was Tauren Warrior, so horde but i played only for 1-2 days and give up due to hard auto-attack mechanic

    After a while i back and start learning the game and exploring the world as a Human Paladin, because...come on it was a paladin, defender of lordaeron,champion of light,bane of undead. Just love the class lore generally back then.

    I play both so I can't really vote here.

    Horde, friends played it and back in BC I perceived the Horde to be the more mature faction. Not sure if this was actually true or not, seeing as I did end up dealing with quite a bit of guild drama before BC was over, but back then I was absolutely sure that more kids played the Alliance, at least on my server/battlegroup. In all this time, I've never leveled an Alliance character past 40 (although I have a side-project monk that might break this, and I've gotten an alliance DK to 63 and I don't really count that).

    I picked Horde because

    1) I like red better than blue
    2) Blood Elves had my favorite campaign in WC3
    3) Blood Elves look the coolest imo

    I play both really. I started as Alliance and played them from vanilla and TBC. Played both Alliance and Horde from WOTLK and Cata. Playing mostly Alliance again since they became the underdog and I kind of like that.

    I've been Human and by extension Alliance since I downloaded Warcraft 1 shareware demo off of a BBS. That's quite a long time.

    I have played Horde though in WoW, just to do it and see the other side of the coin. Raided as Undead in Cata, but don't currently have any capped Horde toons though. I rolled Horde because I felt like I was only getting 50% of the game by just being Alliance, might as well get my full money's worth.
