It all depends what you're playing, I guess.
Alliance racials are amazing when it comes to tanking. Stoneform, passive dodge, extra hit/exp that can be used for defensive stats, etc.
I'm not exactly sure it makes such a huge difference anyway.
You guys need to ask yourselves a question here:
"Am I in Paragon/Method/etc?" If the answer is "No", then you do NOT need racials to make a difference. You're not a part of bleeding edge competition and you're not gonna get world first. So the miniscule advantage you gain with a racial has no effect on your gameplay whatsoever. If your guild wipes and can't get through a heroic boss it just means you're not good enough yet. Not because you didn't have an orc/troll/whatever in your raid. Face the facts.

If you really think "WELL YOU WOULDN'T GET BOP IF EVERYONE WAS A TROLL AND IT'S ONLY 85% OF AN EXTRA PERSON!" is a good counter-argument... well, I'm not sure what to say. 5% increased damage is huge. It is a massively overpowered racial, almost worth an extra raider if everyone picks it up on a beast boss. What other racial comes anywhere near that benefit?
Easy solution. Remove all damage increase racials and change them to utility.
As I said earlier, the troll racial in particular effects 2 25 man alliance guilds and 1 10 man alliance guild. Unless you are part of those 3 guilds then the racial doesn't even matter.
HAHAHAHHAH HORDE racials are Overpowered... That's precious... I'll bookmark this thread on the "jokes" section....
Alliance and their incessant whining to cyberbully Blizzard in making the game unbalanced to THEIR favor...

It affects anyone who raids at a high level because the quality of alliance raiding is in MASSIVE decline.
horde racials are good in pve while alliance racials are good in pvp that's fair enough.
and it's not like your raid is gonna need racials to kill a boss, or else is a bad raid.
wow, still people caring for racials ? it really doesnt touch you if you dont compete for the top ranks. and if you do, you wont be that roleplay fixated so that you want to be something else. If my shaman could go bloodelf, I would gladly abandone my orc. and I only play orc because trolls and tauren only have 3 fingers which is really really disgusting mutational awkward meh stuff for me. I would love to play alliance if my guild wouldnt be horde.
I have forgotten more than you will ever know..
