    Orcs = Least intelligent race on Azeroth

    Stemming from the Warcraft 2 and 3 days, Blizzard has always portrayed the Orc race as complete and utter morons. Case in point, their Orc warriors and peons, and the rabble the World of Warcraft town npcs and gaurds spout.

    It is almost absurd to believe that the Orcs could be Mages, considering the Mage class uses intelligence and whit to destroy their foes. Why were they added as a playable class for the Orcs? Does not make sense.

    Orcs may be strong, as to strength and agility, but they sure are dumb. There are a few exceptions, but you may notice that these exceptions almost always involve humans somewhere. For example, Thrall was raised by humans, and therefore they taught him good principles, and taught him to be intelligent.

    Why did Blizzard make the Orcs idiotic, bloodthirsty savages? And why allow them to be Mages knowing this in Warcraft lore?

    Every alliance and horde race currently is shown as idiotic.

    They showed Orc peons to be a bit under the radar...but they did the same with peasants. I don't think Blizzard has labeled, or portrayed, orcs as "stupid".

    Barring the removed storyline where newly raised Forsaken are mind controlled a'la Lich King, Orcs are for sure the dumbest, most bloodlust-driven race currently playable.

    Well.. erm, this. Although this is a parody thread I'm sure, but there's alot of anti-orc around as of late. And I like orcs D:

    An entire generation was bread by the Legion and accelerated into adulthood. Then they spent another generation rotting in prison camps. Of course they're dumb.

    Yes peasants were less educated farm people that were servants to the alliance kingdom, peons were their grunt labor force.

    But you have to acknowledge that their Orc grunts and other forces were not the sharpest tools in the shed. It has been painted by Blizzard, and fleshed out in WoW.

    When have orcs ever been dumb? Where do you get that from? Because they are big and green?

    Seriously, what is your lore backup for this?

    They've shown that Orcs can be intelligent and upstanding individuals. Horde was that way from Founding of Orgrimmar through Fall of the Lich King.

    Then Garrosh took over. Now it seems all they think about is where to find their next massacre of Alliance. As dear Nazgrim says, "The tip of the Horde spear; no greater honor."

    There are few exceptions, i acknowledge that, but generally the Orc population consists of "zug zug," "quit poking me!" and "waaaaaat?!"

    Eh, sillies aren't a good representation of a race. That's like saying BElves are all gay, or NElves are all teenagers.

    Least intelligent would be the Night Elves. They love nature, love forests, yet they've allied themselves with humans (who clearcut forests), Dwarves, who do the same and strip mine, and Gnomes, who blew up their own city and love to destroy nature.

    i'm assuming your not counting races like the murlocs? even so of the playable races, trolls are the dumbest. Has no one noticed that they are the only race without any sort of city? Everything they have resembling a city is a ruin or simply huts. On top of their lack of any sort of civilization.. every chance they get they try to summon some unspeakable evil believing they can control it.. but it always ends up controlling them.

    Trassk is banned you know, so there's no one to make a "humans suck" thread in retaliation if that's what you're hoping to feed into.

    I dont even know why Im about to respond to one of your "threads", probably so that trassk doesnt kill a puppy when he reads it.

    But here goes.

    Orcs arent stupid, they have human like intelligence, they are just portrayed in a dim light because it distinguishes them better according to Blizzard.
    In reality they were shamanistic, peaceful beings that got corrupted by blood and forced away from their homeland. Now a bitter hatred has been bred long enough for Garrosh's horde to come into existence, a group of bloodthirsy warriors. Though even they arent stupid, their judgement is clouded at times because of hatred, but not stupid.

    Also dont use ingame sillies / random phrases to try and represent a whole race. Its freaking pointless, theres books and books on orcs yet you choose to flesh out /silly and /target. Which are there for comical humour, something that Blizzard indulges on in unhealthy amounts.

    Because /silly is totally an accurate representation of a race as a whole.

    Why don't you mention /dance too?
