    i actually want horde get treated like alliance for once, ie ignored
    horde is focused to be fucked, anyone who isn't human is getting light spot to show how better humans are, check gnomes, no one talking about them
    I have zero faith in blizzard, i want gnome treatment, just ignore we exist, no more capital to be raided, no more warchief to be loot piniata, no more bad or good or misunderstood or fucking MORALLY GREY characters, blizz ignore us, make next exp purely alliance, make it so nelfs or draenei are evil because they don't suck humans dick good enough, turn IF to a raid capital and make us beat the shit out of Moira for lolz, and forget that horde exist for just 1 exp

    rereading this thread, it seems most ppl missing the strangely obvious sign imo, blizz don't favor alliance nor horde, they favor humans massively since ages, u can argue that 2nd spotlight is orcs but even if that is true (which isn't, orcs fell since WoD) they are miles away from humans focus

    most alliance players are right if they don't main (or care about) humans, u are ignored, u exist only to show how amazing humans are, when a 16 years old anime boy king teach a 10k years old nelf about patience, u know u exist just to be fucked by humans

    @OP Maybe the Horde would stop losing if it quit defaulting to "wipe entire nations and species off the map and targeting population centers as a matter of course" whenever they go to war. In a franchise predicated upon the continued existence of two factions, any war built around the total extermination of one is going to fail. Instead, you and others seem to think the answer is "quadruple down on a failed philosophy, because this time if we fill our ranks with murderous sociopaths, it will absolutely 100% work," which brings to mind the adage regarding the definition of insanity and repeating the same course of action expecting different results.

    The same as the investment. To get to the point that we don't know why the Kaldorei are part of the Alliance.
    The alliance always has its story kicked forward over and over again until it is finally told to you and voila.
    To the point that we find out that the Kaldorei recovered Vallesfresno in the Game only when they are predicting it again.

    I do not see the problem of step as they say to unite the missing dwarves and to put that the senario ring is only Alliance. and allies of the Kaldorei happen to be part of the alliance. Although it is not playable
    (who already are but are not treated as part of the alliance)

    By the way, once and for all, the Kaldorei can use all their power even in 1 war. Not even against the Horde against the Murlocks. But at least 1 you see see all its power for real.

    No. Because the alliance didn't kill any heroes of the Horde.
    But if the alliance and the neutrals have to kill heroes of the alliance. Sylvanas's beauties are no longer good for anything. Get off the ground or devalue so many human characters.

    It really is the Alliance that never had a "true victory" against the Horde in all of WoW. In the best of cases there is a twitter that says "they won".

    They tell us on a twitter that the Alliance won.
    If they officially won they won but they are not in the game. We will not see dark coast reclaimed. We will not free those the Horde enslaved.

    PS: I still have no bias. I know this is bullshit for the Horde because all their "victories" are things they didn't want. But hey Blizzard always takes the worst option.

    I have the true ending. (XD)
    That Talanji manages to sign a peace treaty with the kaldorei and accept the cult of Elune, thanks to the Lunaris. (Because the Loa also accept it) Not counting the rest of the alliance and the Horde.

    Then Anduin gets angry and wants to exterminate the Kaldorei. Why don't they follow his light and why don't he follow him.

    The Horde then reacts because he owes a huge debt of honor to the Kaldorei and dedicates himself to defending them even if it costs him dearly. The Horde has a lot of Heroic moments and wins a lot of New NPCs along the way.

    Then we entered Stormwind and destroyed the entire Human Cult, I say light.

    And there in a world where humans are no longer the focus of Alliance history.
    Where the Horde returns to have Honor and return to seek "survive" in peace.
    Where the Kaldorei received their "compensation"
    There the Wow will make more sense.

    Just a reminder that the Lore subforum is not the place for roleplaying, there is another subforum (directly below this one) dedicated to that purpose. This subforum is for discussion of WoW lore from a player/developer perspective.
    "We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see." - Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

    Well I reject any Horde storyline if it revolves around turning our main characters into BBEGs and loot pinatas, thank you very much.
    Every time a Horde character gets into spotlight, you can bet that something bad is about to happen to them. I was so grateful for Lor'Themar not being in the focus of attention for a long time because I wanted to keep him. Now he is probably the next candidate for execution. :/

    If you want Horde story attention for the Alliance, please go on. Enjoy seeing your faction leaders corrupted for no reason whatsoever but to serve as a plot device so the other faction can play the victim card and stay the shiny paragon.

    In truth, the Alliance already had it in Cata. but he was a Pj to forget. And they tried to do it with Maiev. They failed.
    But to the subject if it is going to be like a Garrosh 2.0 alliance. I would be quite interested as a story.
    Because if you lose a pair of characters but give a lot of background to a few.

    If it is a BFA 2.0. It doesn't interest me.

    Nothing of what you say fix anything! You just listed what "you" want! None of it gives a fix to anything related to that so-called "Alliance bias"!
    Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos was the game that brought me into gaming. I was 17 years old then, I abhorred gaming before this game. From then on, I became a fan of Warcraft and Blizzard. To see it all go down the drain like this is truly sad for me. No king rules forever but at least some of them went down in history as real badasses. I hoped Blizzard and Warcraft would be one of them but it is no longer possible.

    indeed, the alliance don't realise the best thing to have happened for them was for them to be ignored. The night elf fans are slowly realising this as more ofcus is turning to them.

    We are paying the price for the so called blizzard focus.

    I didn't say any of that, but okay. What I pointed out was that the story has, since Cataclysm, been disproportionately focused around what happens in the Horde with the Alliance there as a reactionary, secondary force. Even the "big fistpump Alliance moments" amount to pushing back a Horde assault or calling a ceasefire, or (in the case of Dazar'Alor) accomplish precisely fuck-all except to strengthen the Horde by winning them more allies.

    As far as 'corrupted for no reason whatsoever,' who does that cover? Garrosh broke under the weight of how wildly underqualified he was for the jobs he was given through Thrall's rampant nepotism, itself brought on by Thrall getting nostalgic for the bloodhungry lunatic he adopted as a brother-figure and mentor. Every choice he'd made throughout the Cataclysm and the Pandaren Campaign was done of his own will, and the devs have confirmed numerous times that his honor speech in Stonetalon was the result of a miscommunication/disagreement between Afrasiabi and the rest of the writers on the direction he was headed in. Sylvanas was always cruel and evil, working toward some nebulous goal with the complexity of a childrens' cartoon antagonist, all they retconned was why. Neither of them were, until the devs change their minds and say otherwise, corrupted 'for no reason,' and those are the only two who took direct heel turns as time went by.

    None of what you said invalidates my post. All of BFA prior to Visions of N'zoth centered on the Horde storyline with the Alliance there to move the Horde story along. All of MoP from 5.1 to 5.4 was there to move the Horde's storyline along, with the Alliance there as a reactive force for the Horde story to bounce off of. All of Cataclysm 1-60 was about the Horde's blitzkrieg taking large swathes of land with the Alliance reacting.

    When's the last time the Alliance had an unambiguous victory that left the Horde reeling, that didn't involve the Alliance playing backup to a Horde rebellion? Meanwhile, the Horde has resounding victories at Theramore and Teldrassil under its belt, and while the Horde easily curbstomped through Ashenvale and Darkshore, the Alliance had to push for every inch at the Undercity and still had to call a full retreat when Sylvanas used it as a trap in an attempt to wipe out Alliance high command. And as I already mentioned, the Alliance siege on Dazar'Alor was repelled and all killing Rastakhan managed to do was push the Zandalari into joining the Horde's war effort, instead of discouraging them from getting involved as was the original intent of the siege.
    Be seeing you guys on Bloodsail Buccaneers NA!

    And yes we still have it. But i would not put it past the alliance leadership to give it back. And even if not. its a blighted land so we can not use it. BUT even if we have it. horde still wins with hight mountain and suramar.
    And yes val shara is a alliance heavy zone. But its a druid first zone. you know all the druids running around there.

    to be fair I do think it would have been better if it's the Alliance who was the "bad guys" given their suspecting and xenophobic nature while the entire point of Warcraft 3 was to turn the Horde away from senseless killing, wanton bloodshed and warmongering.

    and now I think it's time for the Alliance to be the bad guys, we have Danath Trollbane who is very racist against orcs and trolls; we have Turalyon who seeks to claim all of the Eastern Kingdoms to the Alliance, by force; we have Tyrande; we have Alleria and Vereesa who would definitely support Turalyon and may do a "Purge of Silvermoon"
    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

    Why not play purple elves in the alliance? Silvermoon just need to be razed and elves banned from the game
