Just give me something!

And all the people whining about how Metzen lead the Alliance to a loss was adorable, as if he actually had a say in anything going on with the bikes in general.
OT: The Horde bike just looks so much better. I admit that I was very much so against it being a trike, but the armor plating covering the treads is quite fitting and I approve of the final design. The Alliance bike in general just isn't as good. The fenders, as others have said, felt like they looked at the Horde bike and said "Well we need something like that too!" and just made them swords instead of tusks.
Aside from that I actually did quite like the Alliance bike. Just the Horde bike is so much better. Glad to see it'll be in game, granted I won't complain if they do decide to add the Alliance bike at some point as well.

If anything it encompasses the competition quite well.
This shitty reality TV only served to break even more the A/H duality.
Instead of endeavoring to create cohesion and an overall friendly dispute, it only instigated pride and hatred inside the game's community. Nothing new to expect really since, from what I see, alliance players are mostly neglected to 2nd plan.

The Horde bike looks like an ATC dressed up for the ren faire. It works, though - the costume is executed well.
I like the visual texture and individual parts of the Alliance bike much better, but it doesn't come together well at all. It looks like somebody took a street bike, clad it in an awesome, custom suit of high gothic jousting barding, and then slapped on a set of treads from some other vehicle.
I think the reason for that is that the Horde team conceptualized the bike whole-to-part, figuring out its general shape and then getting down to details, while the Alliance team worked part-to-part, deciding on the details without first considering the gesture of the bike as an object. They were still making major structural decisions late in the build, and it shows in the bike's gesture.
I know I'm droning on like an art teacher, but they're essentially kinetic sculpture. One of those two sculptures was conceptualized in the right order, and it won.
Instead, they made a bunch of cool ideas and started applying them, never considering how they look TOGETHER. The end result isn't terrible, but the parts don't look as good as they could have if they'd spent a little more time considering how the bike would look in the end.
Lets just say it the Alliance bike looks like shit.
And the horde one is not better too. I mean, tracks? TRACKS??? This is a Bike (or a trike in horde's case) Not a damn tank!
Don't even get me started on the alliance one. They did not even had an idea in the last stages, which is proven by that internal debate whether or not to put even more swords on. And the tracks just look ugly as hell. When I saw them both finished I just knew the alliance has no chance at all.
I wonder what kind of reaction all those will have who keep rubbing "YOU LOST! YOU GET NOTHING!" when Blizzard adds both mounts in-game.

the dude that had the idea to put only 1 of the 2 mounts in game should be fired, wow is not in a good position right now, why are they trying to make the ppl angry? i just don't understand. put the 2 bikes in game and the vote should only for "oh yeah this looks better but i still want my faction bike". srsly MORHEIM WTF?
..........I need more butter, now that I think about it.

Yeah, so I'm driven by boredom. Not personal angst about not receiving anything.

By far the dumbest competition ever. It was clear right from the get go that horde would win. 3/4 of the world that plays WoW is Horde. Why the fuck would they even do this? I have never been so pissed over pixels but now I'm out a mount.
Just because the Alliance lost doesn't mean the universe is out to personally screw you. It's not even a huge deal, really. It's really disheartening to read such hate-filled posts just because a friendly competition didn't go your way. It's not like Samwise, upon winning, grabbed Gorehowl and decapitated Metzen or anything.
