However the 1-60 leveling zones, the horde get far better zones (Silverpine, Stonetalon, Hillsbrad, WPL) with much better storylines which usually result in kicking the alliance all the way out of the zone whereas the alliance versions (Ashenvale) are pretty poor and result in a draw at best or facing a generic threat/overdone in comic relief (Dun Morogh, Westfall). In fact in 1-60 I don't remember a single zone of Alliance vs Horde where the Alliance came out victorious
But no, we get this nonsense about "balance". Yeah... It's like saying humanity was stronger during the Cold War. Well, it's only the last item in a long list of ethical bogus and weird politics WoW had since WotLK...

If that'd been all it was, no worries.
My one and only problem with Thrall is that all during Cata, the Alliance players who called foul on him being EVERYWHERE were told that it was okay, he was a neutral lore figure like Malfurion or Tirion (Who has had little to no connection with the Alliance for years, but that's another gripe for another time). But come MoP the poor guy can't even get to raise his orc child with his wife without having to stomp back and take care of things. He doesn't stay neutral like a lot of Alliance lore figures have been. He needs his retirement. And he can take Malfurion with him, because I don't want you guys to have to deal with that thing.

My issue with MoP is how 5.3 and 5.4 are handled.
5.3 was the biggest joke yet, the horde got to fight with their leaders and heroes to win back their towns that they started in with interesting dialogue about recruiting for the war.
The alliance got to control a robo kitty to look at a couple things then have a chat to Vol'jin.
It was even worse before Blizz changed it where Vol'jin pretty much said "shut up and follow my orders or fuck off we don't need you" until the Alliance players rightfully moaned and got it changed.
5.4 is more that it literally makes 0 sense to anybody why the outcome is what it is, the alliance are clearly the superior force at the end of the raid yet willingly withdraw despite everything has happened without sorting out a peace treaty or a return of land
"Isn't Falstad dead?"
that's a pure indication of Blizz devs or so called "story tellers" not knowing WHAT THE F*** they are talking about or doing in the game.
all they care about is the MONEY!!!
I claim Alliance bias. They should have to pay the Horde tribute for daring to set foot in our sovereign land.
Also, Highwarkingchief Big-Chin should dance the hully-gully on top of the remains of Loch Modan dam wearing a pink tutu. Just cos.
These are the distinctions to be made.
