Why does Alliance get Blood (Void) Elves?

Like excluding the fact that Alliance get the only "nice" race the Horde had, there are only like 25k high elves in the entirety of Azeroth (and not all allied with the Aliiance). You telling me all of them decided to do a full change to Void Elves? Also it's stupid for Alliance to get a race that looks exactly like a Horde race.
And I would love to say it's stupid for Horde to get Nighborne, but unfortunately Tyrande had to be a little !@#$% and treat them like trash.
There is like 15 threads about this, The Void Elves are trained by Alleria who is loyal to the Alliance, and for the Nightborne, they have a lot more in common with the Blood elves due to them been magic addicts themselves. Not to mention the Blood Elves did more for the Nightfallen in the suramar campaign.

As I said I know why nightfallen join the Horde. My thing is that Void Elves are very, very, very few in numbers. And also the main problem I see with it, is one faction getting the exact same model of a race the other faction had, with enhancements. Just from a design point of view, Horde players are already lower in numbers, this would just dissuade more from playing Horde. Why would I choose a Belf and not a Void Elf which is pretty much a Belf that also has a button to become Void looking?
Horde should get the new Draenei in this case.

did you do the quests? In 7.1 Tyrande and her sentinels did as much as the blood elves did to help free her ancient homeland and people

And are you forgetting all the working together the night elves and nightborne did together in 7.0? The nightborne are cured because of the night elves, the Moonguard helped the nightborne every bitas much, the Val'sharah refuggess too working with Thalyssra, Nighteyes too - the list goes on, do we just forget all of that now and pretend as if every night elf that marched on Azshara and won the war of the ancients also comes from Suramar?

Suramar is where the alliance night elves come from. The high/blood elves are descended from Zin'Azshari night elves.
Well, the Nightborne look exactly like one particular Alliance race, too, so what's the problem? I know that they are probably the only "unique" looking race out of the 6 new ones, but they are still Night Elves. And according to the recent news, the Void Elves are going to switch forms while in and out of combat. When they engage in combat, they turn full emo and all the purple stuff comes out, and when they are out of combat they appear as a regular High Elves with blue eyes and stuff. Remember, High Elves have always been members of the Alliance.
I’m very disappointed now about this Void Elves! How it comes that they are Blood elves who were exiled from Silvermoon for using the void...... but Blood elves warlocks for !@#$ sake don’t use void and shadow already?! They should have been High elves who followed Alleria as their leader and embraced the void like how she did! This was just a waste of opportunity if you ask me! And why would those Blood elves join the Alliance now after all these years being with the Horde!? Ok they were exiled from Silvermoon but they could have turned to the other horde races ex: orcs, trolls or Forsaken!

But the thing is they aren’t High elves like how we all believed! They are Blood elves which is very disappointing if you ask me. And it doesn’t make sense for them to be Blood elves and exiled from Silvermoon since Blood elves warlocks always used void and shadow
What's nice is subjective, for me it is HM Tauren, Nightborne > Void Elves.

What we can say for sure though is this:
  • you can play as Belf, which looks same as Velf and be in the Horde
  • Horde got 2 brand new models of Nightborne and Trolls
  • Alliance did get NO new model
  • so really, there is injustice towards alliance
    Blizzard just stolen the most popular and unique Horde race, slightly reskined them, made a story about them in 10 minutes....and gave them to the Alliance...ofc "THE HATE", for me to the point I am thinking about quiting after Legion for good...coz this really started to suck.

    Whats next ?
    OGRES for Horde...and NAGA (the most wanted race forever now...which only makes sense in Horde coz of relashionship they had with Blood Elfs) for ALLIANCE...damn you can outright just delete the Horde than.
    Do they always have those void wings or are they optional?

    Horde should get the new Draenei in this case.

    And if horde is getting night elves then alliance should get trolls in this case...
    How did The Blood Elves do more for the Nightfallen? WTF do you think my Night Elf and Tyrande and Vereesa helped them with?

    Why can't it just be High Elves instead of some extremely nichéd Void Elf subrace of a subrace..and if they are Blood Elves and not High Elves it is even more conveluted. Are they double "fallen", Do two minuses here mean a plus too so they return to the fold of the Alliance?
    Let them keep their longears! I'd even give them our new longears, in the return of escorting Worgens our way.

    It is not stupid!!! Lore or not lore... Nightborne are just reskined night elves they move and have same animations as night elves. Should be night elves runing around orgrimar and horde? Nightborne (night elves 2.0) at the horde thats like having trolls runing around in stormwind!!! Stop with this mana adict thing...

    Oh shut up, mate.

    I'm sure Blizz will write a damn good story for all of this, just wait and see.

    You expect good writing? I expect it to be a lame excuse and then I sit play the !@#$ing game anyway.

    And to be fair, I think Nightbourne and Zandalari are much more interesting than Void and Lightforged. The first two are races with a legacy and older than the Warcraft universe games cover in game time while the other two are shoe horned later creations of the Void and Light balance bull!@#$ in Legion.

    Blizz and good writing? Is that even possible in an AU?
