This is an asinine thread...
If I liked to pretend I lived in Azzeroth and was actually a member of the Alliance sure I'd share a view as the OP. But this is real life.
Also there is no faction bias in lore, there is only straight up story, enjoy the epic rise and fall of Garrosh the son of Grom, who made the same mistakes his farther did with no redemption. Also witness the growth of a king once rash and somewhat idiotic, now wise and true.
It's a story you can't make a compelling story without connecting to one faction then giving them equal blows, that's just not how war works I'm afraid...

5.3 was horrible for Alliance compared to watching Thrall,Voljin and Chen fight for Razor Hill.Thrall being a semi-replacement for the Earth-warder(in Cataclysm) to use the Dragon/Demon Soul.Even as a Horde/Alliance player I groaned at that shit.

Basically "if you dont like it, leave" is not the best argument you could come up with, as it is just defending bad decisions made by blizzard.

And im pretty sure it's:
The Alliance is Helping the Horde invade the Evil Horde's capital for no logical reason whatsoever.
As an Alliance player, our lore could use some work. However, both sides have it pretty bad. The Horde is losing the greatest Warchief they'll ever have, and so I'll fully respect Blizzard's decisions for Alliance.
So, we've got an expansion in which one faction is subjected to the following:
* Over half the members are told to leave the capital.
* The faction leader ends up being the last boss of the entire expansion, and all players swarm to destroy your leader
* Your faction is responsible for large amounts of reprehensible damage
* Your faction has its capital raided (in part) by the enemy faction compulsorily
* You end up fighting your own people _just to keep stuff you've had for 10 years already_, by the way it's all SHACKS
I could go on and on, but while the "horde" (as in, the fictional sovereign entity) gets a lot of attention its all "point our fingers and shake our heads at the jackass" attention, like the class clown. Individual players end up being a part of the "straight up, you're the problem" category, and are still expected to turn around and participate in blowing up their own nations.
Yeah, there's a bias towards the Horde in MoP. It's a bias towards hating us and making us pay for things we weren't necessarily party to. It's like the turned us into the Axis from WWII. Yeah, thanks, I'm glad we got so much "attention", whereas the Alliance is made out to be level-headed world-saviors.
So why all the complaining from Alliance again? You've been painted as the good guys, even if the paint wasn't very bright. Horde has essentially recieved a great-big, fresh, semi-permanent coat of neon-orange swastikas.
Please, take the attention back.
Well no, just no.. Horde losing their Warchief and bringing all the destruction throughout Pandaland doesn't give alliance players right to be upset because in all honesty that puts the horde in a very bad light and talking about Jaina, she's finally not a dull little girl anymore, she's badass so congratulations The Alliance!
You tried too hard and now your post is shit. Never try too hard, the gamble isn't worth it. -Boubouille
You have a right to be annoyed yes, but look I don't see this quite as much HERE, but I post on the official story forums I have seen and made threads that have nothing to do with Alliance V Horde content or anything like that and it STILL gets derailed in Alliance complaining about being neglected, that just gets taxing on me. It's kinda sullied my view of Alliance players in general at this point.
Just to add, I actually remember a lot of complaining on the Alliance side when the High King thing was first talked about, I feel that might be part of the reason it went from being planed as a big epic quest chain to just a couple of scenarios.

Matthew Rossi said it the best over at WoWinsider.
The problem with attacking the Horde and Alliance storytelling is that the Alliance don't really need a huge story or reason to siege Orgrimmar, while the Horde do.
So, Blizzard has to focus on the Horde in order for the story to make sense for half of their playerbases actions. But, they need to do more for Alliance story.
I think people can take it either way about the alliance's involvement this expansion.
I can understand people getting angry due to lack of storyline for alliance but at the same time can't they be happy that the alliance hasn't fallen to shit like the horde has? If anything it feels like the horde actually need the alliance. That's a huge debt the horde owes to the Alliance.
