    Angry Alliance QQ makes me want to xfer to Horde

    Let me start out by saying that, I love the Alliance. As cliche as they may come across, the shining white knight has always stood out to me. Also, the mixture of savagery/hypocrisy of the Orcs and Forsaken has always turned me away from the Horde. In short, I like the lore for the Alliance better.

    But the community? Hahaha, oh my. We could completely kill off every Horde race next expac, yet will still have Ally QQing about not having an enemy to fight. It seems that, unless every patch in every expac features heavy Ally development and has the Alliance gaining something equal to or greater than the Horde, people will cry bias.
    I look at the mixture of maturity and pride thats with most Horde players, and it dwarfs, absolutely dwarfs the percentage of these people present within the Ally. Maybe its the fact that the Horde started out as the losers, that makes their community so strong and committed. I dont know.

    How can you tell a good story like this? The game tells the story of two warring factions. That means, be it for a few patches or even a whole expansion, one side is going to be on the losing end. Its realistic.

    Now back to the white knight and 5.3. Weve always been the good guys, helping those in need no matter what. And were doing that and more in MoP. Were helping the Horde. Yet? We still have QQ. It seems some of us arent content merely helping the Horde, we want the Horde to beg us, give us complete control of their armies, and have them bend over to us post seige. Anything less is either a bias or bad storytelling to them.

    Look at 5.3. First phase of the siege, where a small Alliance force is helping out the growing Horde rebellion.

    What does this mean? Well common sense and intelligence tells us that 5.4 will be a more Alliance heavy patch than 5.3, as that is when the fleet/army will arrive. So 5.3, were not going to have as much development as the Horde, and thats OKAY. We shouldnt have huge development in this patch anyways, the Hordes rebellion never got the screen time it needed, and thats what 5.3 is for. Us Ally should just wait it out for 5.4, when our army comes raze Org. But no. Theres no waiting for children. Unless its now, and unless its better than the Horde, well cry and complain. I cant take this. So.....


    Blood elf or Tauren for a warrior?

    Why?

    there's a saying, about how the grass always seems like it's greener on the other side.

    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.

    I play both sides, and the Horde by far are generally worse at most things. I don't even know how they get LFR done at all (must be by some miracle). Most of them can't even do LFD properly without wiping- which hurts because I use to be primarily Horde during Vanilla/BC/LK. (I switched to primarily Alliance due to so many garbage players coming to Horde side towards the end of LK/beginning of Cata.)

    I have chars on both, didnt really notice a difference, if anything Hordes better on my server but thats not my point.

    My point is the people who play Alliance always complain. Always. Unless its now, its bias. Unless its better than Horde, its bias.

    Look at this forum, only 1 overthetop Horde fanboy i can think of. Too many Alliance to remember any of them.

    Obv id want a good story, and I know thats the root of a lot of the complaints. But theres a difference between wanting a good story, and wanting THE story, which is what most of the Alliance poster comments ive read imply.

    This, there are plenty of idiots Horde side complaining about things too. Join a guild of people you like, leave global channels you don't use, ignore forum posts that sound whiny, and enjoy more constructive conversation.

    You're going to be disappointed when you find out Horde is exactly the same.

    exaggerate much? ive had virtually no difference in experience from one side to the other aside from one thing. for some reason, when im playing a horde toon, i get spit on like 500% more than when im playing an alliance toon.

    Nope, Ive never heard people complain about the story on Horde side.... Ever and ive been playing strictly Horde since Wrath.

    FOR THE HORDE!!!

    I switched from Horde to Alliance at the beginning of MoP but I'm still Horde in my hearth. Lore-wise always cheering for horde and I'll always will.

    Can't tell if you're being sarcastic... but here's one example from the first page of most recent threads: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...cs-after-Mists

    Interesting to see that you have met all 10 or so million subscribers!

    I could never care less what type of development the Alliance got and if we kept losing or whatever, if a Horde biased game is what Blizzard wants then good for them. As long as there is still PVE content it'll keep my interest.

    Im dead serious and i mean in game, on the forums it's a bit different but ive played alot and multiple realms and never have i once heard a complaint about attention, even during Wrath when it was more Alliance focused but still no complaints Horde side.

    Edit: Linking a Trassk thread about orcs, come on now he is litterly the most diehard Orc fan. 1/10

    There's no meaningful difference between Horde and Alliance players. If the past two expansions had centred around the rise and fall of King Varian and an Alliance civil war then there'd be just as many complaints from Horde players as we see now from Ally ones.

    So by what your saying, every poll ever taken is completely wrong because not everyone voted.

    Ive played and read forums long enough to know which side tends to complain more, arguing this is irrelevant to me (and most people who have come.to the same conclusion).

    That's just Trassk. He's more of the exception than the rule.

    I play both sides,( 4 toons Alliance including my main, 5 Horde) and Horde to me = filled with way more young guys wanting to be badass, more people thinking they're better at pvp than they really are and just splurting more elitist crap than they can live up to in terms of...well, anything. I rarely see the same thing on Alliance-side unless it's on Silvermoon EU.

    Also, it's individual. You DO know that what you're doing right now, is complaining, so you will be another addition of whinge to Hordeside...as if there's not enough as soon as THEY feel left out. I've seen my fair share of it before Cata. People whinge, people have bad manners...and people play on both sides. Why is this so difficult to grasp?
