    Horde really does seem to be getting almost all their requests and dream races at this point.

    Just add ogres and the old horde will be all but complete. My only hope at this point is that Ion is trying not to spoil SOMETHING big in regards to HE either converting to VE ir being wiped out.

    If not their is clear issues going on seeing how long HE have been requested

    Nah we did not loose. If you look at all of BFA we got *ss F*ck*d raw by saturn 5 rocket. And blizzards response to all of it has been:

    If you want anything cool or epic or well done ( story, quests, allied races, hero's etc), the horde is there for you

    if you want hand me downs , bad crap etc go alliance. :P

    It doesn't matter when i'm answering you this:

    What matters is that Void Elves aren't anything near High Elves besides being Thalassian, do you understand it now?

    But blood elves already have blue eyes?

    wtf? shamans being their defining class? no. rangers and mages are their defining classes, perhaps even priest. High elves will be popular enough without special classes added, just give them what they already have. Mage, priest, rogue, hunter and warrior. You could argue paladin or warlock, maybe monk (since blizz give em to everyone) but not shaman or druid imo.

    Lol be careful with saying the horde have it better :P. Because the horde do not see it that way. ( i agree with you btw).

    Its really insane. They have gotten everything better. Better quests, allied races, story, hero's, druid forms, racials, story focus.

    Horde wins all night elf lands + broken ilse
    Alliance can not even get 1 city from them :S:S

    I just wish that Blizzard do something about this, as wiping HE from existance, adding them as a playable option, transforming them into something, or just saying no with a statement that doesn't seems to not take on count what the community discussed a thousand times.

    But just something goddamn, what Ion did in the Q&A just felt totally careless and unaware of the situation.

    Honestly i would say no to lock but a MAYBE to druid(nature mage) but agreed no to shaman. I likely would say no to mnk as wepl honestly

    The #1 Horde requested race are Ogres. Were they implemented? No.

    Horde wanted actual Outland Maghar Orcs, instead they got the timey-wimey Orcs that completely shit on their MU lore.

    Horde wanted Nightborne that actually look the NPCs, instead they got cheap discount night elves with crap customization and ugly faces.

    Yeah sure Horde got everything they asked for. /s
    When we looked at the relics of the precursors, we saw the height civilization can attain.
    When we looked at their ruins, we marked the danger of that height.

    Wellll druid forms i would give to Kul tirans but that is just my taste.

    Overall i completely agree though. I had hoped we would get undercity and it could be redone as a worgen base or give ys gilneas for deities sake.

    Been saying this for ages. Almost all i got were replies about my being entitled

    - - - Updated - - -

    I DID mention ogres are about all that is missing did i not?

    The nightborne models are crap agreed but better then lf draenei.

    And so you got a version of a race you wanted with almost all of it intact..Alliance got a twisted version that gives almost nothing matching why it was asked for.

    Compared to ally you have been given alot of what you want.

    Relax man this movement was always grasping at straws especially after Void Elves were introduced, people were being naive if they ever thought the ideas in this thread, some of them questionable, others more sound, would actually appear in game.

    And we do have lots of great things, story wise the Alliance got much more spotlight in Legion than the Horde, Blizzard bases all of their armor and tier sets on humans so we always look great in transmog, we've got some great pvp racials, we also have more major characters being developed and so on, so it's not all bad, heck for what it's worth we even got something akin to what we asked for, which is way more than the Horde or even Blizzard themselves wanted to give us.

    In BfA alone we get Kul Tirans with as great druid forms as the Zandalaari trolls', we get to visit Kul'Tiras something lots of Alliance players have wanted for a while. We sack Lordaeron arguably the hardest city to siege in the game, so I'd say we get lots of attention and great things,

    What has- and continues to surprise me though is the Horde's insistency, and unwillingness to not share their toys.

    Like what I'll never understand that, even if XxLegolasboi420xX ran around Stormwind yelling that they were taking the gnomes to Blackrock, the Horde would still be the Horde with all their spiky red desert fortress-y goodness, and the Alliance would still be the Alliance with all their gold, and lions, and golden lions.

    But that's just something these two camps will never agree on, and that's fine, and I mean both sides are equally as stubborn and biased, so they are as bad as eachother in that regard.

    Nope they have not.
    Blood elves and high elves are different. And game designers no nothing.


    Hell 3 armys of elves came to help free the city and are all named by the big bad Elisande. She talks about Night, blood and High elves....so....you can even see there 3 distinct army's and she even calls out some of the differences .

    not to mention straight backs, cool zandalari, golden eyes as a BE customization, while draenei must be separate race to have golden eyes, even if it makes sense, that your draenei can become lightforged...

    That's why I why the second half of my quote reads as



    So image that they gave in and added yet another flavour of high elves that doesn't look like just paler blood elves w/ blue eyes which once against doesn't meet your expectations. What are you going to do next? Ask for yet another one?
    In their defense, its not a big ask. nobody was asking for fanfic elves (voidelves) meanwhile threads for high elves have been around for an eternity. blizz fucked up tbh, its kind of undeniable that void elves just havent fulfilled the high elf fantasy, they are twice removed from their high elven base and are the most pure example of asspull blizz has ever achieved.

    people have asked for vanilla elves, not blood elves, not void elves, not special hotsauce elves, just plain jane vanilla elves, the same exact type that were in the alliance in warcraft II and III. blood elves only joined the horde in wow's second expansion, they are not a horde mainstay for anyone old enough to enjoy the classics. its honestly not a big ask imo, its about the same as horde asking for amani trolls or ogres, both of which were a part of the horde in warcraft II.
    players will ask for basic high elves for as long as they dont have them. once they are added the forums will die down and everything will carry on as normal.

    I feel like the Nightborne got improved from their NPC versions, i enjoy my mage and now i'm gonna level a warlock, i understand not everyone likes the new look but it had to be made in some way.

    But talking about the mag'har, i too dislike them being from AU Draenor and not from Outland, but the acceptance now is gonna depend on how they present us their recruitment, the AU Draenor plot sounds awful to many.

    And i didn't referred to how much requested were the race btw... and Ogres are another race, not something like the already known allied races.

    They aren't available to players though. Lorewise, yeah, they have them, some NPCs have them as well.

    What's so difficult to understand a reality in which Ion read your feedback, it was brought to his attention, and it didn't even register with him? Or a reality where the CMs took all your feedback, and discarded what they felt wasn't worth passing along to the devs? Because that is exactly what happened.

    There has to come a point where you realize all your cumulative time spent as a community discussing ideas and putting forth effort amounted to nothing in the eyes of Blizzard, the arguments you made were not in line, not enough to sway their opinion, not even budge it, for 7 months. For 2 years. For 10 years. For 14 years.

    Read what i wrote...not just about high elves. High elves are not the main problem. They are straw that broke the camels back.

    And we are not that naive. We know we never stood a change to get them. The boss of WoW says no...then we know enough. Does not mean we need to give up on our hopes and dreams.

    Ya know a cool way to go with lightforged would have been to let us choose our species. Say a dwarf a human or a draenei maybe even a ne.

    Would have made them special.
