aww poor taurens AND gnomes.. guess you guys have to be sidekicks like always.. i kind of feel bad for you :/being a tauren seems so pointless right now
Confirmation bias. You see what you want to see.
Mists wasn't horde/orc centric, Garrosh slowly established himself as the main antagonist and final boss; but we weren't fighting him every step of the way. We didn't have orcs in your face constantly. DW showed his face a lot more than you see Garrosh as Alliance. Thrall did have some face time in Cata, but he was Go'el at the time, and not part of the Horde, like Tirion Fordring showing up everywhere in Wrath.
See, if you aren't biased, you see slight leans here and there, but you aren't brainwashing yourself into seeing some conspiracy that doesn't exist. At that point, there is nothing that can please you except not having your ocd show up at all so you don't tweak out in the slightest.
How else are they suppose to set up the story? I suppose they could put pictures of ponies over the orcs as they reveal them as the antogonists. Hey look, Alliance are the good guys again! Alliance save the day again! Varian solos Onyxia because he is badass human king (lore-wise).
Seriously though; I saw tons of draenei in that trailer; but I was focused on looking for the alliance side of the story; while the ones bitching about orcs were looking to confirm their compulsive hate.
Let's see, Draenor ... draenei, orcs, ogres, gronn, arokkoa, you aren't going to see much outside of that. So Having focus on draenei and orcs in the trailer makes perfect sense.
Since the draenei aren't the warlords, the image to have at the start would be misleading if it was a bunch of draenei standing in front of the logo, would it not?
Orc, Orc, Orc, Orc, Orc, Orc, Orc, Draenei, Human, Draenei
Looks quite Drenaei centered to me. And the orcs that are featured appear to be the guys both factions will be punching in the face.
You must show no mercy, Nor have any belief whatsoever in how others judge you: For your greatness will silence them all!

WHAT?! This is the 1st Orc expansion, the hell are you talking about? In a game that's originally about Orcs and Humans! Please! It should've been introduced way sooner!
What say you? I get to kill more dirty, stinking, filthy Orcs as Alliance, bring it on. Killing Orcs never gets old.
Looks like we are getting both Orcs and Draenei.
"That rug really tied the room together"
yeah, because deathwing swore oath to the horde.
I've got bigger issues with this expansion than having us fight some Orcs. I'm just glad Garrosh is confirmed to not be the final boss, just the trigger for what all happens.
cata's orc's were only subplot, MoP only had a large presence of orcs in its final patch. I think people are just over reacting, that being said i wish it was a legion expansion.
So I keep hearing arguments that bosses such as Arthas cannot be counted as alliance spawned villains due to the fact that the alliance of WoW is a different one than was in Warcraft II/III.... This also means that this is NOT A HORDE CENTERED XPAC because this is a DIFFERENT HORDE THAN THE FACTION THAT WE PLAY. Thank you for playing, your logic eats itself.
"You will bend to my will... with or without your precious sanity!
Sigh. There are no "Horde expansions" or "Alliance expansions." If you feel the Horde story always turns out better, play Horde.
