    Good memories.

    Blackrock Foundry was probably the best part of WOD, but that's really just a blackhanded compliment.

    I don't really care if they get added one way or the other, but I personally wouldn't play one.

    Not really interested, no. Unfortunately, the impression they leave at this point is slow and not-very-bright, WC3 notwithstanding. I suspect after the initial "oh boy" moment in the sun when new, they'd eventually settle into one of the least played races in the game.

    I'd love to play one. We've already seen ogres in full armor, ogre warriors, mages, shaman, warlocks. They would probably make decent priests, too. Paladins: no. Monks: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. And they could be rogues ONLY IF their stealth mode is them walking around crouched with their hands over their eyes, going "Can't see me!"

    don' t care. they would be another evil horde race. also to make them a player class and get them right would be very difficult to balance.

    When I play my Horde toons I play them for the "big ugly" factor that defines the Horde, so yeah I would.
    I can also see them being put into the Horde simply because they're actually rather similar to the Kalimdor Horde races and so wouldn't need to any fiddling with to make them work.

    I have no worgen, no dranei, no pandas, and I don't see me rushing to make a ogre as it is even worse than these.

    I'd love to see them introduced mid expansion (I know it would never happen).

    Just give them lvl 1-5 and then they get onto a boat to Durotar and then quest as normal.
    Give the Alliance the High Elves the same way. Both I believe are great parts of their respective side just not expansion draw cards... Maybe a ten year birthday gift to customers

    Eh, I prefer clever races. And less likely to get stuck in doorways.

    I don't really do horde so that's a huge barrier to playing an ogre as I can't see them ever being an alliance race. I've put no as they there is very little chance I would ever have an ogre as a regularly played character. Would probably make one, do whatever new starting area they have and then delete it. If I had beta access the ogre would probably never make it to live, much like my goblin.

    I wouldn't play one. If i want to play a fat guy i play my pandas, at least they look a bit fierce with their claws and teeth. Even if the Horde pandas would be cunning, all Ogres in the game are dumb, clumsy creatures and that's how they are perceived by the players. And the fact that they remind my constantly of Homer Simpson doesn't help either.

    I personally wouldn't roll one, but I wouldn't mind if they were a playable race for the horde.

    My question is what would the counter alliance race be?

    lore: they match perfectly with the horde, there's more history avaiable than there was for pandaren or worgen or w/e
    remodel: that's a given, they'd do it
    females: ugh, no way around ugly ones, but then again, so are mail ones. most dont play ugly female worgens/dwarves/tauren etc., but hey, who wants to make out with his avatar? I can only agree that ugly races, especially in the horde, are part of warcraft. I think many races are to humanized even, and could use some "uglyfication". Maybe make it a indistinguishable race (males and females look the same) and make two headed ones hermaphrodites :P. Okay, okay, just kidding ^^.
    classes: warriors, hunters, mages, warlocks and shamans come to mind instantly. I guess there could've been ogres during the third war that were turned into death knights (more easily than for draenei/worgen). Priests maybe tbh they dont fit any better than tauren, but hey, we've got sunwalkers and tauren priests now, right?. Which leaves paladins and leather classes. I guess monks would be the most credible out of them, though I dont doubt you could explain a druidic source of powers (they managed well with worgen and trolls, after all).
    starting zone: looking at that, there seems to be enough ideas going around. Others could include ogrila sending envoys with apexis cristals to ogre encampments of the horde or unaffiliated ones on draenor and cause those primitive ones to evolve, and a sky-rocketing birth of two headed ogres, which developed leadership and spellcaster qualities etc etc.
    leader: rexxar, that's easy

    And if you can make chubby pandas a race, ogres shouldn't be a problem. Make them just a teeny tiny bit bigger than tauren and it should be fine even with doorways

    yes I would play an ogre (they'd have to make separate jokes for the two-headed ones though, that would be hilarious). And cast animations would probably look hilarious on those as well, each head/hand doing their own thing.

    BTW, was doing Dominance Offensive and the Horde is using Ogre Mages on Pandaria. Possible hint to them becoming playable?
    As much of a hint as they've been since that ogre village in Dustwallow was Horde aligned. IE not much.
