The Horde vs. The Alliance
Hey Tankspot! First time poster at this community, glad to be here!
As the Cataclysm draws closer to us the drums of war thunder and the old hatreds between the Alliance and the Horde are burning hotter then ever before. I've been giving a lot of thought towards the differences between the two WarCraft factions lately, both from a lore perspective and also regarding the player bases that support each side.
Which leads me to ask myself where my true allegiance lies? As a kid playing WarCraft 2 back in 96 I played almost exclusively as the orcs. Over the many years of my World of WarCraft experience it seems that I subconsicously drifted to favor the Alliance as most of my characters have been either humans or dwarves. Yet I find myself missing my old green friends and now I stand upon the thin red line ready to choose a side once and for all.
And so I put the question to Tankspot: Do you play an Ally or a Hordie, and why? I want to know. Is it because of lore? Do all your friends play for one or the other? Is there really a difference between the two player bases?
