Actually, believe it or not, I agree that I don't want WoW to be about just Orcs vs Humans either. It's so stupidly limiting from an age where the game was a simple RTS. The majority who currently play WoW I don't believe have even played the first game... and many (such as myself) started with WoW as their first entry into the Warcraft World.
It's such a shame if they don't move on past this ridiculous Orcs and Humans focus on things and just move on to being Horde against Alliance vs the big nasties. The Horde isn't just "orcs" anymore. Just as the Alliance isn't about "humans" anymore.
I don't know who appointed Darth Baine but Thrall wasn't his/her advisor. And Baine does not have the right to command Vol'Jin or Sylvanas. Big difference.
it wont be because wrathion says why varian didn't just claim the horde and unite into one whole alliance and get upset about it.
I can't help but feel that when Blizzard says stuff like this, they're just trying to appeal to the fans who just cannot get over Orcs vs Humans (the ones that say it can't be Warcraft unless the Alliance and Horde are fighting each other, like somehow fighting the Scourge and the Burning Legion is not a war).Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment

None of these were about the Alliance and Horde fighting each other. Sure, it happened, but it was not what they were about.
I think that each of the Horde races, given the opportunity, could subjugate the other. And that is part of the point of this expansion and raid. The orcs are NOT infallible and the "strongest" (debatable) warchief yet has been able to be taken down by the mobilized efforts of the Horde and even the Alliance.
If Varian were the one to pick the new leader and its someone we wont be suspecting the only "horde" he would probably trust would be Valeera Sanguinar. Or Baine Bloodhoof if he asks his son for advice on who would be good.
Don't really think that its going to happen but would be cool to have a hot female leader of the horde.

As you can see, clearly the orcs are leaned on more than any other race with the possible exception of the Tauren. You must've never played WC3. And this expansion only proved that the Horde is not as unified as people thought with the exit of Thrall and that's that. Thrall respectfully and semiforcefully earned his position of Warchief, while Garrosh didn't. It didn't prove they could subdue the orcs. In fact, this is a small faction of orcs AND they needed Alliance help to raid Ogrimarr. Lol.
I've never known a more ungrateful group of whiners then people in the wow community, since what you are actually whining against is the person who GAVE YOU THIS GAME TO BEGIN WITH. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
Yeah, the potential of the NE connection with the Pandaren (there's even the eastern feel to NE architecture) was yet another wasted opportunity.
So the closing cinematic about the raid where the Horde rebellion overthrows their corrupt Warchief after their previous Warchief confronts him will be about the Horde having a new Warchief.
But the Alliance get to raid the enemy capital, so it's totally for the Alliance!
Yeeeeaaaaah, I don't think I've ever felt like this since I started WoW, but.......A Realm Reborn starts next week! WOOHOO!

Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.
