I wanna know why the orcs haven't been double teaming Durotar and the Barrens with Druids and Shaman to make themselves a paradise. Take Naralex's Wailing Caverns screw up, tame it, and spread it north from there.

I voted for the Night elves, cause it's for them sacred land, and even if they attacked the orcs (though however ressently started to chop down the forest), does I see it as an aggression move from the orcs. Would be like humans would walk over barrens and harvest without any orcs trying to stop them imo.
Orcs. Land unused (as the elves would see it remain forever) is land that may as well not exist.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
Night elves for sure. It's one of those things I never really got, Thrall isn't the warmongering madman Garrosh is, he listens to reason. Yet for some reason he decided to allow orcs to invade ashenvale and plunder their lumber? :| At the end of TfT weren't they all kind of buddy buddy. Night elves have lumber, Thrall could have easily asked for lumber in trade of other resources and make their bond with the night elves stronger. But siding with the undeads across the ocean and attacking neighbouring races appearently made more sense.
But it's elven land so I hands down side with them. Just like I will always support lordearon belonging to the forsaken, they lived and died there, only to live there again!
1:So lets say people break into your house and start to rip your house apart, i hardly think you would be like " hey guys, let sit down and talk about you peeing into my grandmothers vase" the same goes with the orcs, they started to rip part sacred trees in the homeland of the nightelfs.
2: In warcraft 3, the night elfs never had seen a orc before. it was lore that was added later, and so it can be seen as Broxigar only helped in a different timeline.
3: The night elfes have not since made confrontation? ones agian you are wrong. There was peace between the night elfs and orcs in late WOLK, it was the orcs who ones agian who made the first attack on ashenvale in Cata.
The orcs invaded a sacred place of the night elfs, A demi god then wanted to protect the people and the forest from thise" monsters" who came. Even after fighting with them in hyjal and still knowing that it was a importen place for the night elfs, the " monsters" where still there, still not careing. Later there was a peace between them, but them the new leader of the " monsters" called garrosh son of the "monster" who led the first attack on this sacred place, ones agian made a suprise invasion on the land agian

As a Goblin I fully support the shredder company.
DOWN WITH THE TREES!
"Why do we fight? To protect home and family, to preserve balance and bring harmony. For my kind the true question is, what is worth fighting for?"
Also, calling "pseudo-irrigation" an utter and destructive disaster is amazing LOL
Anyway the problem is that Durotar have too much rock in it, it's not just "rocks", almost the whole conformation of Durotar is rocky. And no matter how much water you pump in the rock, nothing will ever grow, apart some useless and random grass or local vegetation.
Well, anyway I went for the "Who cares?". I'm Horde and would be naturally to side with the orcs, I find some of their reasons understandable, still their actions cannot be completely justified, in all honesty, they're still undeniably invaders. Plus while I'm Horde my top favorite race is trolls, not orcs, and trolls have smallest numbers and live in the Echo Isles, which permit the trolls to sustain themselves with fishing and hunting alone, so well...I will not go in berserk to defend orcs at all costs in this, there is no doubt about it.
On the other hand, Night Elves is a race that make me mad, plus they are Alliance, so I don't absolutely care if their precious forest will be burned to the ground or not.
Besides, a few orcs walk into an unknown forest in order to gather resources for building a shelter. Suddenly, Greenpeace-ish mad women on cats start slaughtering them, going as far as summoning a DEMIGOD to kill them. Yep, without a single word. I respect that, but that means that both sides have rights to beat the living hit out of each other. And I choose the side which actually has found a way to use the wood instead of just leaving it be somewhere.
A side can be direct like that. But you point it out exactly as it is. A character does not always have to be right. That implies that you can like a character that isn't always right. Yet somehow in this situation, they are right?
And those are the same orcs that invaded and started cutting down trees. What if someone walks into your home and starts grabbing your stuff? "Sorry. I didn't know there was someone living here."
Would you be like: "Oh, okay dude. No problem man."?
And they do use the wood. It's for their trees, which have a connection to their culture. I also agree that, yes, they have the right to beat the leaving tar out of the orcs. Shame Blizzard won't acknowledge that.
Ultimately, I side with neither. But, it's nightelf territory - with spooky ancient magic trees and what not.
As malfurion says (in hearthstone) "nature will rise against you!"
So i'd say it's best to leave ashenvale the hell alone. We don't need another war of the ancients, though their numbers are few these days (thankfully).
