HORDE & ALLIANCE
People may get mad at me for this, or then again, maybe not. However, I don't care if people get mad or not becuase this is my page and therefore it is my opinion. Now...It has come to my attention that a lot of people think of the Horde as bad and the Alliance as good. An example of this is when one of my friends brothers was in school, he was talking to someone else who played World of Warcraft. His friend asked him if he was on the Horde or Alliance, and he said that he was on the Horde.
The other person immediately says, "Oh, the bad guys."
Now, when he told me this I was thinking to myself, "What the heck? This is screwy. Niether side is good or bad."
So now I have decided to take my thoughts to WoWWiki.com and rant here. So, first off; what they consist of. The Horde is comprised of Orcs, Trolls-my favorite Horde race-Tuaren, Blood Elves and Undead. The Blood Elves, if I might add, switched to the Horde shortly after Tides of Darkness becuase they thought the Alliance wasn't treating them fairly. Now, as for the Alliance. They are comprised of Humans, Draenei, Dwarves, Night Elves and Gnomes-I hate Gnomes-. Okay, so now, onto the good and bad thing. Many hardcore Alliance players probably think that the Horde is bad becuase they invaded Azeroth and nearly wiped out the Human race, along with the Blood Elves, in an attempt to conquer Azeroth, and becuase they nearly wiped out the Draenei too. However, think about this. When the Horde attacked the Draenei they didn't know what they were doing. They had been corrupted by Kil'jaeden and only attacked the Draenei because they thought that they were going to destroy their race. Now, onto the invasion of Azeroth. At the time the Horde invaded Azeroth they were still corrupted by the Burning Legion and led by Gul'dan-a power crazy Orc Warlock who is a real numbskull. Also, Medivh-who was corrupted by Sargeras opened the way for them. Now, when the Horde invades, they invade becuase they need a knew home, and are sluaghtering each other becuase they are still consumed with bloodlust. So, when they invade Azeroth they aren't exactly thinking clearly. When Orgrimm becomes leader though, what is he supossed to do? If he says, okay, turn around, march back to Draenor, do you think the rest of the Orcs are going to take to this? NO! They won't. So he continues on his conquest for domination of Azeroth. Now, I think that I have summed up what the Horde has done and defended them nicely, now, onto the Alliance. So, hardcore Horde players will say they hate the Alliance and that they are bad because they put the Orcs in slave pens after the First War. But think about this. After another race nearly wipes out your own, would you let them go free, regroup, possibly attack again and this time maybe manage to wipe out the entire race? No, of course you wouldn't. Now,I think I have made my point here. Both sides have done what they need to survive, and while this is a broad overview and there are really more intricate things that happen. Overall though, both the Alliance and the Horde have done what they must to survive, and while it might not always have been the right thing to do, they did it anyways. Now, I leave you with this question. Should the Horde and Alliance be fighting each other? Or should they be banding together again and getting ready for the inevitable, another attack from the Burning Legion.

Just because my above rant states I think neither side is good or bad doesn't mean that I don't strongly support one side over another.
