    Warcraft vs WOW. How do you see yourself as a player

    Ever since the beginning of WOW players have gone back and forward on which faction was better for different reasons. I personally have enjoyed both factions since Warcraft 2 and always felt that Warcraft even though it was the root of WOW doesn't have the same player base. I have meet alot of WOW players who never played Warcraft and people who will never play WOW because they say it isn't really Warcraft. Now I have played both sides of all three Warcraft games and both sides in WOW with my favorite Alliance heroes still being Lothar and Turalyn while on Horde side I love Doomhammer and Thrall.

    I consider myself a Warcraft player not a WOW player because I just see no need to play and support only half a story, but I do want to Know do you consider yourself more a Warcraft player or a WOW player.

    I guess I am Warcraft player. I played WC3 and WoW. I have never played WC1 and WC2 when they were popular. WC3 was a great game but I think it was right decision for Blizzard to bring WC franchise to MMORPG. SC/SC2 have always been superior to WC in general as RTS games.

    Played both sides since Warcraft 1. I always considered myself more Alliance than Horde, but in WoW the people I started playing with were Horde on a Horde dominated realm so now I'm mostly Horde. I have a toon of every race though. Eventually I'll have one of every class for each faction.

    Warcraft 2 is the classic rts and Warcraft 1 is literally one of the earliest games of the genre coming out with the original C&C. As for the Starcrafts being better they are designed for large armies and warcraft is more squad based combat, but both are worth whiled experiences.

    Although they are different but they are both RTS game and Starcraft has more depth strategy wise.

    This is true Warcraft is more of a hero stomps the attacking army rts than a full strategy rts though

    Starcraft is a direct outgrowth of Warcraft II, thus it was more sophisticated. Both are pure RTS. Warcraft III was a fusion of traditional Warcraft/Warcraft II and a hero based strategy game like Heroes of Might & Magic.

    Personally while I liked Warcraft III, it never reached that zenith of perfection that Starcraft and the other Warcraft titles did, mostly because its compromised gameplay between the two genres meant it could do well at both but never truly excel at either.

    Warcraft. It was even the reason why I started following WoW back in 2003 and started playing during US Open Beta (even being European).

    Second RTS ever made. An amazing evolution compared to Dune 2, we could select more than one unit at the time!
