Due to Horde asking for it the addition of Halduron and Rommath has been added
The Horde pretty much only have 1 trump card, which is Thrall, and since Ji Firepaw is more of a fighter than a healer, that means that Thrall would be the only healer on their side, as opposed to the Alliance who would potentially have 3-4 healers, with the rest being pretty much Warriors.
So in-game we all know Warriors are pretty deadly if they close the gap. They're more durable, they hit hard, and they can keep themselves going long enough to be healed. The Horde is much more versatile in their classes, but like I said, if the Alliance closes the gap, it'll more than likely be a short fight.
Instead of having 2 leaders be a "3in1" just leave the Horde leader by himself and give the Dwarves King Magni.

Alliance has Malfurion, the Horde loses already.
Alliance dominates horde in number of mary sue's so that pretty much obvious they win. Unless metzen decides to posses thralls body. Then even gods won't save us.
It simple really all horde gotta do is group up. Burst down the priest (velen). Pray thrall can keep the group up with ji throwing off heals. Meanwhile we suppress them with strong melee cleave damage. Wait for CD to be back up and take out Malfurion. Rest is easy as pie.
yeah, its hard to admit, but weighing up all characters, the alliance has more powerful house currently.
The horde has a group of mostly warrior characters, some shadowy characters with some unique skills, and of course the worlds most powerful shaman.
The alliance has is share of warrior characters, some unique characters, but then it also has the worlds most powerful sorceress and the worlds most powerful druid.
Now if malfurion was to do his thing of staying out of any horde/alliance conflict then its kind of balanced powerwise, but then you'd also need to cut a horde character from the mix, that being obviously Garrosh since he's set to go, and then you got a nice balance.
If you take malfurion out of the mix and cut Garrosh from it, since he will soon, you have a pretty even score.
Well it seems that alliance have a good lead on the horde leaders in this fight.
Anway the horde leaders are more physically stronger than the alliance leaders but the alliance leaders are more magically and mentally stronger
but im gonna be a complete fanbois and say HORDE FOR THE MOTHERFUCKING WIN!
I am terribly amused because I came in the thread to say 'focusing iris' only to see it's been like NO NOT THAT.
Even tho I like the horde leadership the combined power of
Malfurion & Jaina & Velen would just crush all opposition.
Thrall and Sylvanas would prove to be the hardest Horde leaders due to Thralls power and Sylvanas being able to negate casting but once they fall its over.
Thrall wouldn't help. And horde are known for their inability to properly coordinate an attack. So yeah. Alliance all the way.
I actually believe most of the folks read the poll as "which one would you like to win?" instead.
No way the poll should be that close - Alliance faction leaders should win it.
Horde has one guy that can potentially break the battle by himself - Thrall; he's shown that he literally has earth-shattering powers. However, Alliance has Jaina and Malfurion, both game-breaking by their own right as the most powerful faction mage and druid in the game. In addition, Velen's probably the best holy healer in WoW after the Naaru themselves.
Horde simply can't burst down any Alliance healer - they have a few. They best coordinate with CCs, but Alliance also has plenty of that, too. The Alliance can burst down Thrall (who is pretty much their only heal capable guy).
There are also a few that will cancel out: Varian vs still-not Sha-Garrosh (Varian's better, but not significantly so), Saurfang vs Muradin (they play the same role in ICC so I assume they're close in strength), perhaps the Pandas.
Actually I imagine Garrosh dies first because he charges Gelbin or something and gets contained easily within a stun.
C'mon, you underestimate Garrosh.
He just 1shot Anduin and the Divine Bell, he is immune to Sha energies (divine bell endquest), and also in the Trapping the Leader horde dominance offensive story quest, he just massacre 30-40 mogu warrior and saving our butts from the Mogu War Leader Shan Kien who traps us (yes us, and we are the champions).
Plus if you remember in the Wotlk opening event he duel with Thrall and he is defeating the shaman, just the Scourge invasion stop that duel. And in that time he isn't even wielding that cool Horn on his shoulder :O).
That was retconned in one of the books. Thrall basically handed Garrosh his hind quarters on a platter.
OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
Malfurion isn't an Alliance leader at all... neutral to both factions.
And Thrall too.
And no Velen is not as powerful as Archimonde and Kil'Jaeden, Velen is an original Eredar and he never got empowered by Sargeras like his "brothers".
Also his main powers consists of predicting the future, he's a prophet, not a powerful fighter.
