    Vol'jin: For da Horde!

    Varian: We will END you!


    It only works if you put the proper emphasis on the End.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    I can imagine alliance using that.

    "We will end you........ Next time!"

    Words to live by.

    I still think "Have mercy!" suits you better.

    Except it isn't, nor wasn't, a battlecry. It was a direct and personal threat, and one made convincingly if you ask me.

    I seriously don't think anyone can seriously expect a field full of alliance soldiers and their commander to cry out 'we will end you!' in morale-boosting unison. That would be quite stupid.

    'For the alliance' is all the battlecry they need. Its not supposed to be an attempt at being/looking cool, its a stark reminder of the bigger picture for which you fight.

    The Alliance doesn't fight to end the horde. The Alliance fights for peace. The threat was empty as we all know, meaningless, and in the end just makes Varian look insecure. If Varian was a strong leader he wouldn't need to get angry, all he would need to do is tell Vol'jin exactly what is going to happen in a flat rational voice.

    I was thinking it was more like, "Lets kick their ass and then pack up and go home with nothing to show for it cause kings never actually conquer."

    Is that too long?

    I thought "Theramore was merely a setback" was the latest alliance chant.

    Personally I feel "For the Horde!" and "For the Alliance!" sound equally good. I feel the Horde battle cry gets more credit for rolling off the tongue better, 'For' and 'Horde' having the same emphasis on the 'or'.

    It also depends who says the line. Horde players may think their cry is superior but I think mostly because it's usually uttered by a barbaric Orcish warrior with a deep, gravely, voice. Versus "For the Alliance" which is usually spoken more softly by the Alliance foot soldiers.
    "Enjoy your power"

    Some Alliance units in WC2 said "for the king" but they never sounded that convinced. With the king being Varian I imagine they would be less so.

    ... wait.

    "For Lordaeron" was always my favourite, though it only really applied to the human portion of the Alliance, and even then it was only the humans from Lordaeron. And now? Well...

    FOR THE HORDE- Works for the Horde

    GLORY TO THE ALLIANCE- Works for the Alliance

    "For Lothar!" is still the best battlecry in WarCraft ever. It's just something Turalyon and AA's soldiers shouted from their heart without even having to think up anything when Sir Lothar fell against that scum.

    I think "Don't make me come over there!" would be better...

    I can imagine Varian in his morning gown, shouting I WILL END YOU at his bowl of cereal before eating it.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    "grab your sword, fight the horde" is way better
