Yes, give me Alliance Ogres.
Seriously, I want them.
And no, ogres, in fact, 2 ogre tribes are already members of the Horde. While I'm sure Blizzard can fit them in somehow, I expect them to given to the Horde and hope the Alliance gets a brute race too. I mean we are kinda out of stuff that can be added so I expect blizzard will make one up that's big and nice too.
I am hoping they will be the next Horde race and Alliance can get the bird creatures, but more of the winged kind.
Glory of Queen Azshara!
Thats why we teamed up with them on quite a number of occasions.
But that doesn't mean we trust them or want anything more to do with them than we absolutely have to.
If Ogres ever become playable they'd be part of the horde hands down. Since right now, there are Ogre clans in the Horde. Ogres were part of the Horde in the past...well more slaves to the Horde...but those were dark days. Draenei would never be in the Horde. Not after the Orcs nearly wiped them out.
And keep in mind, that Draenei have insane life spans. Valen is over 25,000 years old. Meaning that most if not every Draenei alive witnessed the Orcs murdering friends and family.
So no, sorry OP, your idea doesn't float.
the rest of the genocide and road paving was due to one orc going: "yo guys my dead wife told me to kill them all" and the rets of the orcs went "k"
edit: maybe not, I've sen both versions being thrown around so, meh, stuff been retconed about 20 times already anyway
and I've never seen any evidence that suggests the orcs were mind controlled or anything with the blood, it just increased their strength
and there is plenty of evidence of orcs acting the same way they did while on demon blood in cata, mop and soon wod

My Draenei has lost everyone she cared about, and she does hate the ones that are responsible.
However, she also knows that bloodshed after the fact doesn't bring back the ones she loves and only leads to even more suffering on both sides.
That being said, she does not like the Orcs (or Bloodelfs for that matter, since they killed her daughter when they sabotaged the Exodar) one bit.
If an Orc or Elf gives her even the slightest reason, she will strike him down without remorse.
So, you didn't help Thrall stop Deathwing?Certainly as a Draenei player I have never teamed up with an Orc
You didn't fight side by side with Elfs and Orcs in the shattered sun offensive?
You never helped an orcish shaman of the earthen ring?
Humans have suffered from the hands of the Orcs just as Draenei did.
If a race of children is able to put their hatred aside and fight for common survival, so should we enlightened Draenei.
OP, there are two very big reasons why your suggestion fails:
- Ogres have been part of the Horde in the second war and they have slaughtered plenty of Alliance.
- Draenei were brought to near extinction in their war with the Orcs, it would be VERY strange to see them being neutral.
So no, it would make a lot more sense for Ogres to be part of the Horde and Draenei to be part of the Alliance.
It makes no sense whatsoever for ogres to join the alliance, ever.
The Draenei should demand justice for what happened to them, not be working with the war criminals who waged a baseless genocidal war against them. The Orcs try to destroy everything they come into contact with sooner or later, as we have seen and seen and seen and seen. There will never be any common survival or peace if the Orcs are involved in it.
