    Question How can the Orcs still control the Horde after this?

    seriously, looking at these screenshots in the other thread, almost every named orc in orgrimmar (or at least the ones able to fight) is killed in this raid. NPCs of all kinds wind up evil and are killed by either the Kor'kron or the players, and we kill the Kor'kron too. Some of the best the orcish race has to offer dies, like nazgrim. Their whole military is being completely destroyed. There are NO organized orcs helping the rebel forces, except for the few npcs like Thrall and saurfang/eitrigg.

    But think about it. The orcs have been utterly ruined by this. their city is screwed and SO MANY of them are dead now. even the devs describe it as "wiping out every orc in orgrimmar". how can they still be the dominant force in the horde after this?

    Only the baddies of the orcs remain and thrall.

    The orcs will fall, and the Humans will rise. Orcs VS humans is done, The Humans have clearly won

    They probably won't be a dominant force. I mean, Vol'jin, Thrall, Baine, etc could become the warchief. Shit, Anduin and Wrathion have an equal chance as well. The orcs will most likely not control the horde any longer.

    I'm rooting for the underdog, Sylvanas Windrunner, to ressurect all those orcs and add them to her Forsaken ranks. B) Edit: aaaaand take control of the horde. Forgot to put that.

    Ogri will become a vassal state to the humans, who will rule over the Orcs as overlords. The next xpac will be all about the Orc underground resistance fighting to resurrect their place in the hierarchy of the world.

    I lol'd to myslef.

    its likely that the trolls will take control of the horde at this point.

    Don't forget the Frostwolves are still out there. Maybe they will have a more serious presence and the Frostwolf Keep will expand and become the new Capital of Orcs.

    Good question, it defies elementary logic. They still will though.

    Frostwolves should take control as all the other warmongering shit clans have been crushed into the dirt, deservingly so. There shouldn't be any place for Dragonmaw, Warsong and Blackrock orcs on Azeroth anymore. Frostwolves can actually salvage the Orcish race, the Horde has proven their worth with or without Orcs (something diehard Orc fans are going to have to come to grips with).

    Orgrimmar will and always will remain the Orcish capital and Horde capital. Gameplay dictates it. And gameplay is the reason Orgrimmar is still around.
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    Pretty much. Whenever I find a massive lapse in logic in this game I usually just come to the most likely conclusion: The writers didn't think that far ahead.

    Next stop, Forsaken. And then the Horde Thrall is talking about can be achieved.

    The Orcs will continue to be the public face of the Horde (and Warcraft as a whole) but it won't be a total domination a'la Wrath-MoP any longer.
    Unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    In fairness, the same could've been said when the Horde was shattered at Lordaeron and put into internment camps..

    Not sure why anyone would want the Orcs to control the Horde after how badly they've botched the job. Several times, actually.

    Massive political and social reform is precisely what the Horde needs.

    yet, i hear many who play alliance argue that this expansion has been horde favored.
