    The same reason the Justice League hasn't cleaned up Gotham City which is full of some of the weakest threats in DC comics, because the plot says so.

    Sure, I forgot about Sylvanas.

    They are not, per Danuser on twitter few days ago.
    I think in last interview there was something about Calia convincing them to return to Alliance.

    Yeah, which was supposedly a misinformation. Can't post links yet but he said it yesterday on his twitter account.

    I mean its not like the horde has any factions of their own aside from the pvp ones...
    Oh no! My limitless wealth and power is all I have! Boohoo, send me sympathy money

    Except that fundamentally, we *aren't* just talking about two groups wit different ideologies. We're talking about different species (Or "races" in WoW terminology) as well. While technically the different species in WoW don't have to align to a specific faction, the way the lore is set up is that they are effectively interchangeable: Tauren are horde, Human are Alliance; along with the other "races". While there are defectors here or there, you don't really have a split. There aren't rampant groups of Human horde or Tauren Alliance. So when talking about faction you are also innately talking about the individual races that make up those factions as well.

    So I'm saying that your example doesn't work, because while the topic is technically worded about Horde; we're really talking about the races that make up the horde. Because if a Night Elf went Horde, there would be no real qualms for anyone if they joined the Cenarion Circle; because they're a Night Elf.

    And when we take it in that light, it's really about the groups accepting those individual races as neutral, when those factions are actually often fairly prejudice against the races they're allowing themselves to work with/allow in their ranks prior to WoW lore (Because otherwise gameplay would suffer).

    And as such, I'm claiming that this is completely not like your example of nationality; It'd be more like a sentient alien species not being allowed in the United States Congress.

    Thats a pretty poor example as most Night Elves are intune with nature whereas you have the majority orcs and goblins trashing everything and undead blighting everything they can.

    And yes we are crying about night elf focus ( i know you where sarcastic here and think we got a lot of focus). 75% of the zones of night elves get murder/burned down or turned into forsaken/goblin play grounds. And we got 1 warfront and that is the story conclusion!?!



    Oohhh and kirin tor was neutral. and jaina was not the bad girl. Here some reading for you:

    The Orcs only need one axe-crazy leader to get into war mode. They're as bloodthirsty as they come and all other races just blindly follow.

    Ofc they should try. But how do we let them know this is really important to us? they don't seem to be putting in nearly the same amount of love or care they do with the art or the systems. Like story is secondary. Maybe the creative people don't stand up ienough in the board meetings, or don't have the seniority clout needed to drive a more impactful response.

    Shadowlands in an opportunity to resurrect him but I doubt the will care about him when they have Kael'thas to take care of first.
    Yes , shadowlands is an opportunity to bring them back. An excellent one. As well as other faves like Kae'thas. A group like the Farondis would be impactful to regenerating the night elves and properly showing their highborne caste in game to boost their lore and story directly, like Suramar and the Nightborne would have been received as if they remained neutral or went alliance. I hope they don't miss the chance. But it will all depend on whether they care or not.

    He just seems so bland , even when following the horde. I can get that he is no racist and very open to meeting all manner of species and races, they don't eve have him giving horde banter, it feels so contrived.

    But I agree, if Brann must be there, then Tae'thelan should do. However we get something like that in Naz'jatar with the 3 elves, don't we.

    It is quite common in WoW that whomever is prevalent in zone is going to be slaughtered. Zandalar is about killing trolls, Mechagon is about killing mechagnomes and so on.

    They were only officially neutral. I have a question for you. What was leader of Kirin Tor doing in Theramore?

    - The Knights of the Silver Hand was also founded by humans. They were founded after the First War and were an Alliance faction up until Legion.
    - The Cenarion Circle was founded by the Night Elves 10 000 years ago.
    - The Wardens were also founded by the Night Elves.

    None of these factions were created by the Horde.



    Fair enough, still doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Maiev to trust literally everyone. She didn't even trust the Highborne in Stormrage.



    The Kirin Tor was very clearly betrayed by the Horde in MoP. The Horde attacked the homeland of the Night Elves and nearly killed the leader of the CC. I'd classify that as betrayal.
    Kirin Tor was co-founded by humans and high elves, and the former only even had mages because of the latter.
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    Which, at their core, means they are two different groups with different ideologies.

    Yeah, and so what? None of those races are part of the Cenarion Circle. And as for the Argent Crusade, look at the characters: they're not representative of their respective races' bad traits, like Leonid Barthalomew.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!

    Danuser recently said that gameplay leaves little place for dialogue and they have to choose which characters they want to be visible. He said that putting too much of them would make the scenes chaotic and uncomfortable. It is kind of true, as it is hard to imagine a scene where all people who want to kill Arthas gather around him. Video below shows comism of such idea.



    Yes , shadowlands is an opportunity to bring them back. An excellent one. As well as other faves like Kae'thas.

    Well, I think it indeed is a chance to make something good out of night elves. As Malfurion's followers were incinerated, they can be replaced with highborne.

    He just seems so bland , even when following the horde. I can get that he is no racist and very open to meeting all manner of species and races, they don't eve have him giving horde banter, it feels so contrived.
    Bronzebeards seem to not care about the war. I wonder where Muradin was for entire expansion.
    But I agree, if Brann must be there, then Tae'thelan should do. However we get something like that in Naz'jatar with the 3 elves, don't we.
    I like the moments when Alliance and Horde show their attempts at the same thing: goblins and gnomes, mages and magisters, Reliquiary and Explorers' League.

    I think that changed fully when blood elves went horde. Night elves and forsaken joining the two factions instead of being their own already altered the outlook because how different they are. The undead zombie world, and the night world are very distinctive and they have an entire and complete set to literally be worlds or at least continents of their own.



    Pandaren, along with blood/void elves and night/nborne elves makes it such that with at least certain races that distinction isn't so celar cut .. and that is fine. they really should be their own factions.


    I would love the game to return to several factions. Night elves their own faction, Forsaken therirs. Horde being Orcs/Tauren/Goblins. Alliance being humans/dwarves/gnomes

    it's fine for a faction of THalassian high elves to ally with the humans, or the faction sub-group of night elves like the Nightborne be with the blood elves, - it's okay to have little .

    But THe night elves - from druids, to highborne, illidari, to Moonguard, priestesses, sentinels, wardens - temples, cities , forests of the night elf variety are all their faction. And while you get a taste of the night elves in the Nightborne allied with the blood elves, you get the full flavours on the night elves. Same with the void elf, you may get a taste of it on the alliance, but if you want the full assets and the Thalassian elven thing, it's on the blood elf faction which has blood, high, darkfallen, fel, san'layn etc.

    No, I'm not. Because "just following orders" means knowing what they're doing is wrong, and they have no reason to do it other than 'following orders'. The alternative I presented means convincing the people and troops that what they're doing is right.

    Can I get a source for said retcon please.
    Sure. Here it is.

    Assuming Sylvanas has sent spies to infiltrate certain organisations and factions is not paranoid. Especially after she lit Teldrassil on fire.
    Yes, it is.

    No, because the Cenarion Circle was founded by the Night Elves, obviously they're not going to kick out their own race.
    Ramuul Runetotem co-leads the Cenarion Circle alongside Malfurion and Cenarius.

    And yes I am advocating for all Horde races to be kicked out. They've proven time and time again that they can't be trusted. Again, why take the risk?
    Your reasoning is wrong. To avoid using less 'charged' words, you're basically "profiling" here: "All chinese people are bad" when the Chinese government does something bad. "All arabs are bad" when the arab governments do something bad. "All North Koreans are bad" when the North Korea government does something bad.

    There wouldn't BE any human magi if the high elves hadn't taught them magic in the first place. And high elves had lived there alongside them since the beginning. Kael was even on their ruling council and he wasn't the first. It would be like you arguing that Cenarius doesn't have any place in the Moonglade, even though the only reason there even ARE night elf druids is him.
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back.

    Gee, what a surprise, the arguments in favor of the Horde include accusing other posters of racism. How obsessed do you have to be to use such an insult towards another real person over FICTIONAL characters? I mean, one post even said something like "anti-Horde propaganda" ffs.

    The Horde has consistently been written as acting for the greater good only when their asses are on the line too. The minute they're not in danger from World Ender Du Jour, they instantly turn murderous on anyone not in the Horde. Take it up with the writers if you don't like that, because they think that's what Horde fans want. See the Blizzcon cheering and chest thumping. See the loud, vitriolic reactions towards peace. See the widespread Horde fan sentiment of wanting to "crush Alliance skulls" while Alliance fans would like to have an actual story that isn't "Oh the Horde massacred us again! Get the forgiveness parties ready!"
