    There's only one way to find out.

    Look up Varians phone number, call and ask him about it.

    Horde is basicly in a state where the alliance is far above them in power.
    The alliance can easily storm all of there regions and take control.

    Only land i would say that will be a hard fight is Sylvanas' land, but for the rest. Durotar is free for grabbing atm.

    Aside from being a bit cliche american style "we gunna kick yer ass" it can be argued that at the moment the alliance has the upper hand, up to and including making good on that specific threat. It's also understandable that trust is a bit on the thin side considering what has happened under Garrosh.

    Maybe Durotar, but Mulgore is still strong as hell, last time I checked there is a gigantic wall, and Taurens are rather good at defending, maybe not at the offensive, but the defensive, daayum.
    For the Horde! And for the Earthmother!

    The threat was so void of threatiness that it threaten ( chuckle ) to black hole all the threats in the world and form a utopic Azeroth.

    Do not underestimate the Horde, not even in their current state. Also keep in mind that Sylvannas will unleash the Blight which will most probably result in extinquishing the Alliance.

    Not really, the only time they were easy to take was just after defeating Garrosh... Reunited under Vol'jin with high morale and no more inner conflict means a stronger force! If we're so easy to End why hasn't he done so sooner>

    While Varian does seem to mean it, the writers of the game's story wouldn't let it happen. Massacring countless horde members and keeping the survivors in check wouldn't happen, because there must always be an equal standing betwen them all. Wrathion even theorises on the event:
    Isn't it ironic how education is important, yet people forget all about it when they visit the internet?

    Of course it's an empty threat, they won't turn the game into a one faction game. If all it took was exterminate the Horde the Alliance could have done that at anytime but lol plotarmor.

    The alliance is not stronger than the horde.

    Did everybody forget about Sylvanas' army? IT'S A HORDE ARMY. Did you forget about the blood elves? They're part of the horde. The goblins? They're part of the horde and they breed like rabbits. The tauren forces didn't even diminish. The tauren fight for the horde. We still have lots of trolls. They still fight for the horde. The only race that got attacked was the orcs, which really isn't that big of a deal considering that the horde blew up a considerable chunk of the alliance forces with theramore.

    All this alliance delusion.

    Lorewise, it isn't, the Alliance has the upper hand now. They could end them.

    Ingame, yeah, they can't destroy the Horde, for obvious reasons. The same applies to those "Horde victories", though. They may have gone a bit too far lorewise, but the reality is that both factions are played similarly and they never win or lose anything.

    It is a PvE-focused game after all, territorial and political disputes mean nothing.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    The war machine of the Horde was crippled greatly by the siege and Garrosh's defeat. Plus the economy is in bad shape because the bankers and auctioneers were killed.

    Or the Horde under Vol'jin don't fail to uphold honor?

    Nor is it against any rules to votekick a member from the group - one person can't do it, apparently someone agreed with the rogue.

    Anything that could mean the end of one faction is always going to be an empty notion lol Otherwise we'd have 1 faction that is playable. That'll never happen.

    That said, it could very well be done, imo. Not the one faction thing, Varian ending the Horde. The Alliance as it stands right now is the only superpower on Azeroth. The Horde is in shambles after losing so many of it's people. They have a new Warchief to break in, old and new trusts that need (re)forging and things need organising. Hell, there are likely so few Orcs in the Horde right now that I see WoD as a way to bolster the population lol

    No, not really. Wrathion himself allowed for another year of fighting. That's another year of Alliance soldiers fighting and dying, another year of treasure and materials being expended, another year of commitment to bloody war.

    And they wouldn't have been fighting to stop a juggernaut bent on world domination. That was stopped in Orgimmar. They'd be fighting against races who rebelled against Garrosh because of his warmongering, now fighting to protect their homes from Alliance invaders.

    The Horde would still lose.

    But the sheer cost to the Alliance boggles the mind. One would have to be a crazy person to want to continue the war once the Orc behind it has been toppled. ("Seize this moment Varian...")

    Currently the Alliance is stronger than the Horde due to this conflict. Vol'Jin is not Garrosh, but he isn't Thrall. The Horde must rebuild not only it's society and it's cities, but also its militaries and its navies to deter further Alliance aggression.

    Besides I doubt Blizz will leave the Horde in the underdog position for long, the march back to parity should be interesting.

    He's saying the next time they have to storm Orgrimmar to dethrone a corrupted Warchief, they're not going to sit idley by and let all of the horde leaders live. If Vol'jin becomes corrupted like Garrosh was, the Alliance will execute Thrall, Sylvanns, Gallywix, Vol'jin, and Baine.
