I am glad blizzard favors horde.
Alliance have been written as lawful good. Lawful good is one of the most boring alignments in all of gaming. The story is over written and well known for the lawful good types. It's predictable and worn out. An alliance centric story would be what exactly? A bunch of humans and elves doing something good for their people? What an interesting turn of events that would be, "rolls eyes."
The alliance needs the horde story for this game to remain interesting. It makes the game much more dynamic and much less lawful good vs. chaotic evil. Currently, we have greys and a mixture of alignments.
QQ moar or roll horde. It's a game, get over it. It's such a pathetic 1st world issue.
And what war crimes have the Alliance committed against the Horde?
Internment camps? I find it funny how many consider that to be a crime when you consider the alternatives.
Tried to kill the Belves? Those were Lordaeron troops who're now most likely part of the Forsaken considering what happened after Sylvie reclaimed the city.
And....um....coming up empty here.
And then comes the useless and pointless posturing of "the Horde're better fighters and warriors" especially in the face of the fact that the old rules no longer apply in the face of the Alliance having races like the Draenei (stronger than even Fel Orcs) and Worgen who don't even need weapons. This is balanced by the Horde having goblins, for tech, and belves for magic.
The confusion caused when one's mind
overrides the body's basic
desire to choke the living shit out of
some jerk who desperately needs it
Not saying it's as bad as Theramore but it's worse than some make it out to be.
As many people have stated, the Alliance players are upset BECAUSE large portions of their faction content are glued and taped together at the very last minute, while the Horde faction content has been getting insane amounts of attention and detail.
What are you willing to sacrifice?
Some people have enjoyed the alliance for a long, long time and have grown attached to it.
Saying "QQ just reroll" doesn't work
I hope that the zone based persistent pvp we saw with Krasarang Wilds develops into a persistent zone pvp explosion with real objectives, not just dailies. The ability to put any number of people into CRZ-like instanced zones opens a lot of big possibilities. Crossing my fingers that I'm right on this. A reason to leave the city and maybe even the queue would be great.
TL;DR Hopefully the new technological changes they're making make bigger things like that a reality.
And to write a progressive storyline where the war advances (particularly through old zones) constantly back and forth would take a lot of development time away from raiding and such which I don't believe anybody wants, thus I want them to just draw a line under the whole sorry affair.

Don't you think it is a bit much to watch the horde go through three epic set backs in a row (Civil War, siege on the horde capital, and losing the warchief). Now you want to add more to that stack?
I don't seem to recall the alliance going through equally epic setbacks. I don't think a few questing hubs lost equates to a civil War, siege on stormwind, and a dead warchief.
Undoubtedly someone will say: "Oh, but the horde is laying siege to org and killing garrosh too!"
If that's the case, why would you want to further punish the sect of the horde that hates garrosh and his actions? That's the part of the horde that peace could be built with. Laying a bunch of demands down on the good sect of horde will only fuel the flames of diplomatic difficulties down the road.
Either way, it's a big loss for the horde. It's either a huge humbling moment or a gigantic military defeat. The alliance fan-ship wants more? It's virtually impossible without saying the entire horde, the good and bad sects, lost. With a dual faction game, saying one side completely loses disenfranchises half of the player base.
What you want is nearly impossible and is too much to ask for within the structure of the game.
I'm talking in terms of logic, it is clear at the end of SoO that the alliance are the stronger faction right now and thus it makes no sense for us to leave empty handed, without the land Garrosh took from us.
Give the alliance massive civil war and loss, if it is told properly and with good inclusive gameplay i'd absolutely love it.
However, right now the alliance are just tacked onto the SoO as seen by the events of 5.3.
The alliance is not leaving empty handed, they are leaving with the new horde owing the alliance a giant debt of gratitude. There might be some point in the game where the new horde will have to come to the aid of the alliance. If Varian fucks over the new horde, how likely is the new warchief to send help if the legion is at stormwinds door step?
Also, the speculation that elves came from trolls has never been confirmed.
Have faith in the light,
And the strength of its weilders.

The Horde is responsible for the Lich King, due to it being originally Ner'Zhul.
