    there you go again, thinking this is about being pretty. Name me characteristics, attributes and nature of the blood elves and Nightborne that is horde themed?

    Nobility
    High Civilisation
    Arcane magic
    Religion
    Culture
    Character

    These are all alliance characteristics that the elves and humans are the epitomy of. There is nothing "horde" about them. They are basically alliance on the horde.

    I know right, it's like he doesn't notice the homeless night elves, void elves and high elves (core alliance races), as well as Worgen, gnomes and Pandas (i.e. most of the alliance) that's refugeed at this point but somehow still part of the alliance, but all of a sudden he can't see that homeless and very small numbers of blood elves and Nightborne can still be horde.

    He's okay with accepting Night elves without a city and being a remnant near extinct race, same with high elves and void elves, gnomes too - but no, all of a sudden it fails to qualify as a race if i'ts on the horde.

    There is also another big difference - void elves do not worship Void or any entity connected to that. They use it as a tool, they earned these powers themselves, they were not "gifted" them by some another being, which they are then obliged to serve. Other void users got their powers from the Old Gods, whom they are obliged to serve.
    Humans, night elves, tauren, orcs, undead, murlocs, ogres... they are all just children playing at a game. Alleria Windrunner is the first mortal to successfully defy the shadows' whispers, and the Ren'dorei are her students. She is on a completely different level than these lowly mongrel races. She's in a tier of her own. Many have tried to bend the Void before her, but because they were weak, they all failed.

    She who was once a mere ranger, has now merged with two Void demi-gods and ascended to a higher state of existence:



    Humans, night elves, tauren, orcs, undead, murlocs, ogres... how many of them have accomplished that? They have no right nor ground to judge her.

It's not working, it doesn't fit, and I don't think blizzard should be destroying their original horde just to make them work or stay there - not when the horde now only needs the models not the elf promotion and proliferation, glorification and assets on it. That's just bragging rights stuff that the alliance should be getting for an alliance race and encouraging/enticing players to switch to alliance and get passionately into playing them again. They know full well these elves matter more to alliance players than all it's races, they counted on that fact when they made the blood elves horde to lure a lot of these players over.

    Now the horde no longer needs brighter alliance assets on it, it just needs the models to stay on, the shiny elves are actually ruining the vibe and integrity of the horde as it is making it too alliancey and simultaneously dulling and depriving the alliance - by making the best aspects of it horde. I know hordies have enjoyed the irony a lot, but it's time to end it. And have delighted in the torment it's caused alliance. You've had your kick for 14 years now, it's enough. It's at the heart of what's wrong with the whole faction set up. Alliance needs those elves, horde needs them gone - the solution really is straightforward, it would neither end Belves and Nightborne from being playable, nor will it end Warcraft, but rather it would heal the biggest problems with the factions. I see that now, which is why I'm no longer promoting swapping or conflict or unification, this is the problem right here: The Thalassian and Kaldorei civilizations and the majority of the elves should not be on the horde. Elves on the horde should be a minor thing, they should be big and established on the alliance.


    Do not presume to know what I'd pick. I'll tell you plainly, I'd have Suramar it's own night elven kingdom, both factions would have access to it, but the Nightborne would predominantly be interacting and involved with the alliance races, and them and the kaldorei would be working things out in a long term story development arc concerning elves.

    The night elves would have Kalimdor north and western portions where they'll continue to grow and develop in their own separate nation - I'd rather they not be alliance but neutral, but in the case where they have to be, they'd be alliance ofc.

    There would be no exchange with Silvermoon, because Silvermoon would be high elven and with the alliance. New roles and places would be written for the void elves too, likely taking charge of Ghostlands and building a twin city there with a new future for the Thalassian people. blood elves, the remnant who chose to remain so and loyal to the horde would settle in Azshara and in time grow towns and cities there. I'd probably have the goblin city bombed, and restore Kezan and Undermine as two new goblin strongholds, allowing the blood elves to take over. the horde loyal Nightborne would be bound to the hip with them, their destiny tied and linked to them because that's exactly what the horde fans who want them want and care about. They don't care about anything deep about the Nightborne, just that the Nightborne stay as arm candy to the blood elves, and so that's exactly what the remnant Nightborne would be.. portal and chrono highly specialised experts.

    There will be no exchange here. What the horde get for losing Quel'thalas/Silvermoon and Suramar are more Troll, Orc, Goblin and Tauren stuff. In comes Zul'drak, Zul'aman (for conflict with alliance controlled Quel'thalas), Zul'farak (redesigned). Undermine city, Kezan city. Gromash city (for Mag'har orcs in Northrend). And Icecrown Citadel and Dark Theramore for the forsaken.

    Horde will lose Suramar, Quel'thalas (incl Silvermoon), lose Feralas and Desolace. Stonetalon, Moonglade, Hyjal are druid territories. In stonetalon, elves and tauren leave peacefully learning druidic ways - both groups protect it so that what happened under Garrosh never does

    I'm thinking that everything you write is a joke because it sounds like a joke.
    and you talk about bragging? The person who laughed and made fun of the horde players because in the exchange the alliance got the most played model of the horde? You bragged that the alliance got what it wanted and the horde got something it didn't ask for? And now that the alliance has what they asked for so much, you don't feel satisfied and want to steal our content. It's hard to believe that this is not a joke.

    You know well that most of the horde players are elves and what you want is to directly attack the content of the majority of the horde player base. do you really think this is reasonable or possible? Mythics pro players are a small minority in the total population of the game and as long as the horde has better racials than the alliance those players will not return because they care more about the racial troll! all of us who play wow know this!
    the only thing you want is to be able to feel better yourself! you don't like horde players having things you want! and I remember very well how you acted haughty and mocking when the alliance got void elves. you just want to laugh and taunt horde players like you did at the time.
    everything you propose is ridiculous. I heard some radical-minded alliance players who even wish to expel the entire horde from Azeroth but even in those cases they proposed that the blood elves have tempest keep as their new capital.
    you have gone one step further! I never believed that there is actually talk of something like this of wanting to ruin the content of the majority of the player base of the other faction without giving anything in return for them.

    according to exploring the eastern kingdoms. it is eliminated naturally with the passage of time, remember that the druids could clean the plague.

    "Plan to rebuild"

    Thanks for the laugh.

    In Shadow Rising, I don't think there was a Lordaeron noble - wishing to take back former Alliance holdings - who sat on the Alliance throne back to that moment.

    If you think Turalyon will let it happen just because you want him to do so, then you're fooling yourself.

    The Horde no longer has any major power in the Eastern Kingdoms. You lost on all fronts. You even let an entire kingdom to be restored to its former glory.

    is what the book says. calia herself says that the home of the forsaken is lordaeron and that derek is the one in charge of the ships that bring the forsaken back to lordaeron. The horde lost power in the Eastern Kingdoms of this is undoubtedly made clear by exploring the eastern kingdoms where the alliance captures the south of Hillsbrad although it is still in ruins. but the Forsaken still control much of their original territory.

    Horde still controls Hillbrad, Tiristal, and silverpine.

    alliance only pushed them out of the Arathi highlands.

    since when is Silvermoon not in the Eastern kingdoms?

    I hope the Argent Crusade won't allow the Alliance to claim Eastweald; Turalyon didn't do jack shit in cleansing Eastweald and Stratholme even though he had the Vindicaar and you're not gonna tell me he was in Stromgarde for like one canon year without stopping
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Alliance's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    I make Warcraft 3 Reforged custom models that intends to fill the gaps in the Reforged campaign

    They aren't in the position to deny anything to the Alliance.

    Alleria alone could single-handedly tear down that pathetic little band of fanatics. All she needs to do is teleport inside their shabby, derelict chapel and tear open a rift for Void minions to come through (or Alliance troops, either would work). The pesky Death Knights almost accomplished this and they can't hold a candle to Alleria Windrunner.

    If the Crusade dares lay a finger on them, they'll be reunited with that useless old man Fordring.

    That one is for YOUR benefit. I highly recommend you read it carefully and consider everything said. I'll edit in some bolds to help highlight the most important points that are absolutely essential
    I don't need to "step away."
    Everything you wanted has never happened and you are now stepping away.

    I've got what I wanted and I've had it this way since 2007. We're almost in 2021 and still, Silvermoon stands with the Horde. We're coming up to 3 years of Suramar standing with the Horde and I couldn't be happier.

    Well, I think it's good for your well-being that you have now stepped away. You've been on at this game ever since 2018 and it is time to bow out of this. Keep your head held high...you can still play a night elf mage, but you'll probably be based at Nordrassil.

    And Nightborne as well, who the hell got those guys involved? Nightborne and High Elves...well the latter anyway, felt so distant from the Nightborne, they were practically in Stormheim at the time of 7.1.
