So, anyone reading, riddle me this:
1) Why do you prefer Horde/Alliance over the other?
2)What's your favorite race and why?
For me? It's gotta be Horde and Goblins. Mostly because it presents the 'bad side' of the medieval fantasy setting (I know they're not evil but Races like Orcs and Trolls usually are) And for Goblins? Well,they're gnomes without the Punt-ability and about 5x the charm.
I prefer Alliance cities, Alliance races, Alliance mounts (the only Horde mounts I really like = I have from rare drops, Kodo, Raptor, Skeletal horse and hawkstrider), Alliance zones...
Horde to me feels like something that lures the adolescent boys wanting to play the "badass" side. This is obviously not always the case, but own experience > rational thinking. Also with the lore in place, I kinda like the thought of having an ordinary melee human who can take on a Tauren or Orc. Makes him feel like a hero, really.
My favourite race are the dwarves, but sadly I cannot play a female dwarf with red hair because of the sloppy visuals on them when it comes to mounts and casting and such. Hopefully this will change when we get a remake. I love the dwarves for their interest in lore, their hunting history, their starting zone and home, their accent...I adore them.
Draenei is second favourite thanks to THEIR lore, and the looks = the most unique I've ever seen.
So...why NOT play Alliance? They have the same content available to them, just in different packages. I fail to see how they're more cliché than the Horde, really. And let's not forget, the most popular Horde race = Blood elves.

S'all about personal taste, and I haven't played Warhammer, which is where Horde seems to get their cliches, so I find it new and exciting, more so then Alliance.
Love the wild nature and violnce hordes have .:) pure sinsticts yes mon :)
For the Horde

I don't like them either. Too dainty. In the Alliance we have beautiful AND strong females. On the Horde they either have tusks, 2 toes or fur...or green skin. :)
You can have the worgen females though, those things would fit right in.
