Which of the two major factions in the Warcraft world is your favourite?

Please explain your reasons.

Alliance is analogous to Lawful, and Horde is analogous to Chaotic. So, Alliance.

It's really a question of Dwarves V. Goblins, as the rest are barely notable.

all of my 85s, 4 of them, are alliance.

The highest level horde I have is a lvl 69.

I do like horde more, even though I clicked alliance. Okay, I am just kidding. I prefer alliance, story-wise not really, but I just prefer playing the alliance races.

There should be a both option.

Lok'tar ogar! For the horde!

Actually, both of my 85's were alliance, but did a faction change a while back before I quit playing to horde side and liked it so much more.

I picked Horde because there were more Alliance players in my server, and then I discovered Troll Shamans.

The Alliance suffers a notable lack of Troll Shamans, and thus, the Horde take my vote.

I have never played but I have always wondered why the Alliance gets such a bad rap from people?

Neutral. Pandarens for the win!

Im an alliance player but not by choice- when I joined my friends were there before me and they'd picked the Alliance.
Which is annoying as I really want to a play a troll.

But hey at least as Alliance I get to kill goblins, I really like killing those douchebags

You can't have a preference for both of them when there are only two options.

OT: I like horde more due to their nature life style and races lore

Meh, I played both. The only difference are small, unimportant things and the visuals... Really, when it comes down to it... The alliance community is full of asshats and the horde community is full of asshats and the gaming experience is just the same.

This of course is from World of Warcraft gaming, but if you talk about lore... Horde of course... They got trolls!

From a lore point of view I think it's because Blizzard, in attempting to avoid Humans = Good, Orcs = Evil, went too far the other way. Best example being the (ex) leader of the Horde, Thrall, is brave, noble, intelligent and generally a good guy. The leader of the Alliance is a dick.

That's not just pro-Horde bias speaking. Even Alliance players think Varian is a dick.

From a non-lore perspective there's a common perception that Alliance players tend to be younger and less mature than Horde players, because they want to play as 'the good guys.' No idea how true or otherwise that is.

Well I like both, but if I had to pick I would be Horde. Shamans are awesome, and while I like Draenei and Dwarves, I prefer trolls.

I played on the Alliance originally because the BG queues were so much shorter than the Horde. I noticed though that the Alliance on my server were more laid back too, trade chat is general conversation and people stand around in SW/Goldshire fucking around, no one really takes the game that serious; which I like. I prefer the Horde aesthetics, Undead are my favorite race and I have a few Horde alts just to experience it, I just find the community on the Alliance side of the game to be better. I think that's down to server population though, having played on other servers I've noticed the least populated side is generally more friendly, it just so happens that the majority of the servers are heavily Horde populated

TLDR: Alliance.

That means.... you don't answer the poll, after all its asking your preference and if you don't have one your not viable for the question.

lore wise they're a bunch of racist mother fuckers. game wise both factions are full of dicks.

On the whole I prefer the Horde, but my highest level characters are Alliance because Horde don't have Draenei.

never leveled a horde so alliance all the way! I should really get around to leveling one though...

Eh I don't know.

Storywise: Their both pretty good honestly, their backstories show multiple shades of black, grew, white and orange which I like. But the horde takes the cake for having a great redemption story, plus, they have thrall.

Races: Hard one, Orc's are cool looking, so are tauren and the trolls. But blood elves are anorexic bastards (which sucks because their back story is awesome.) and Goblins are annoying.

On the Alliance side humans are...well human, pretty well done though. (Guys are way to muscled though and females always have very big...wings? (An internet for anyone who gets the reference.) Night elves are strippers, Dwarves are really cool, gnomes suck period, the space goats are cool but to "good" and the Worgen are freaking awesome (If anything for the british accents)

Leaders: Back when Thrall was running things it was horde hands down but now that its Garrosh the horde is screwed (Especially since Cairne died and Sylvanas finally lost her mind) on the other side Varian is a horrible man in my own opinion but Jaina is pretty cool and Aundrin Wyrnn is awesome)

Overall: Back in the old (Pre-cata)days its horde hands down but now I have to say Alliance as their starting to actually become good and the horde is becoming Xenophobic. So yeah, Alliance

Horde because their back story is much more interesting. Not sure why Night Elf and taurens are not on the same side they're both hippies that love the planet

On my realm Horde. When Orgrimmar is under attack then everything stops. People stop trading, crafting and questing to rush to the invaders, wherever they may be. When I was playing Alliance and Ironforge came under attack no-one really seemed to care.

You could put that in either of the sides favour, but given it was an RP realm it kinda bugged me. But I stick with the Horde. I have a few Alliance characters here and there, but I prefer my Blood Elves.

Hmm, Dwarf or Troll.. Dwarf or Troll..
I can't decide, hopefully they'll merge into a faction of their own.
:D

MrFluffy-X:

I think they both owe a debt to their faction.
Regardless, I believe they made it quite clear that their true alliance lies within nature.

Well, the humans don't have coherent racial traits and is lead by a megalomaniacal schizophrenic.

The dwarfs are drunks and have been fighting troggs for 6 years.

The Night Elves have been turned from xenophobic savages in WC3 to tree-hugging hippies, lead by World-Druid and his blow-up sexdoll.

The gnomes leader killed 90 % of the gnomish population because his advisor told him so.

The Draenei are russian spacegaots from hell. No need for further comment.

The worgen are stereotypical Oxfords who lives in a tree no one visits.

The Orcs are lead by a retard-strong warmongerer who changes character more faster than Yahtzee speaks.

The Undead are zombies bent on world domination while the other races are too stupid to see that.

The Tauren are lead by a copycat and have no character besides being the Night Elves cattle.

The trolls are hypocritical drug-addicts with Jamaican accents, though to this day remains the only original model invented by Blizzard,

The Blood Elves are douchebags that are extinct beause that dropped too much drugs, are babysitted by the zombies bent on World-domination.

The goblins are all the same, yup, every goblin has the same goals, flaws, strengths and dreams, and they're also very unfunny.

Hmm, this was a very tough choice...

I started of Alliance because I loved the Dwarfs, my main back then was a Dwarf Hunter. I then race changed to Nelf when Bows started to become standard Ranged weapons due dwarfs looking stupid with bows.

Most of my characters are Ally simply because it's easier for me as it allows me to send money to them from my main.

But, I do play Horde of other severs where my friends play Horde.

So, for the Poll: Ally

In game: Neutral.

Horde.

Horde has the sexiest elves.

I play horde but I vote for alliance because I like them better. Anyway besides the lore they are both the same and anyone who says something different is WRONG.

Alliance.

Went Alliance 'cause the friend who got me into WoW said 'the Horde are played by whining emos', so I went Alliance.

Regretted it though. Alliance are awful at PVP in my battlegroup.

They both suck politically, but at least the Horde realise that, while everyone who plays Alliance is just lying to themselves.

I love the night elf, So i like them better
but i dont actually play wow.

For the most part I play the Alliance, and that is the side I would take when the line is drawn. But I do have horde toons as well.

Horde.

I love my elves. ;D Just made a new one last night actually. :3

Horde, because Tauren.

I mean, look at this fella.

Undead, (which is horde), mainly because they were my favorite race in War III
