Wrath was about Arthas. Arthas, amazingly enough, has ties TO BOTH FACTIONS. Alliance through the humans/dwarves/gnomes, Horde through blood elves and forsaken.
People just assume race = faction.
Hes a human or night elf? Well hes obviously Alliance then.
Except its not that simple.
Epic events we had in single rpgs such of the bioware games or even blizzards rts games. no matter if its warcraft or starcraft a lot of stuff is happening and a lot of important lore characters are acting in it.
MMOs are absolutely not made for an [epic] story, you can tell if you see how downgraded villains act in a mmo. The technics involed here are just too limited.
I mean how come the lichking acts i wrath 1000 times dumber than in frozen throne? even though smartass arthas was in charge? He was only allowed to fight in a raid.
I've already cancelled my subscription. Just isn't fear that I don't get to experience any good content because I happened to pick the wrong side.
LOL thank you for pointing this out with me!!! Kazomir
I bet they won't even let me freely fish up Old Crafty! bastards.
Bad writing, I wouldn't expect anything less from Metzen and the staff. Warcraft's story hasn't been decent since WC3. The Alliance is blatantly ignored and made to look stupid and weak just because Metzen has a hard-on for Thrall and his hippie orcs. I play Horde primarily and still think this is garbage because the Horde has no worthy adversary in this game, just a mishmash of idiots opposing them that should have wiped each other out long ago out of sheer stupidity.
"Can your blood atone for genocide, orc? Your Horde killed countless innocents with its rampage across Stormwind and Lordaeron. Do you really think you can just sweep all that away and cast aside your guilt so easily? No, your kind will never change, and I will never stop fighting you." - Grand Admiral Proudmoore
People actually play on the alliance side still?
Please post constructively.

The weakness of Metzens writing is, once he kills off an awesome character he does not replace it. So the world really feels empty and shallow today.
No awesome new heroes and no awesome new villains. Only a small build up on wrathion. But he is just 1 (possible) replacement of many cool Villains that had perished.
I actually wonder if metzen still does the story or just give interviews.....cause i cannot realy compare the warcraft rts story that he actually really wrote and wows story. Wouldn't mind wc4 and a solo rpg for once in that game universe.

Tirion - Neutral
Ashbringer - Neutral weapon in the hands of a neutral protagonist
Dalaran - Neutral at this point in time
Rhonin - Once again neutral at this point in time.
Arthas- Had ties to the Blood elves, Undead and the Humans.
Muradin - k you win
Brann - got me here too
Bolvar - i get it
Technically Thrall was neutral too. I think it's just more overlooked since he was such a major part of the horde.
