Which do you play most / prefer?

Horde for me, though I'd like to get a Draenei going sometime.

I used to think Id roll an alli.
But after starting on BG's and random encounters of PVP during the game, I realised that I couldnt play the alli....
It just wouldnt feel right and I couldnt bear having to play alongside gnomes and humans...my 2 most hated races.

I hate them all, especially Gnomes and Night Elves. I do like Draenei a lot.

Draenei are possibly the only ones I can stand to look at...
But I still couldnt play one just because Id also have to play in BG's alongside gnomes,dwarves, humans...and kill the horde....which just wouldnt feel....right?

I actually made a gnome rogue once...called Gnomeaphobe.
I hated her.

Aside from a friend's Draenei warrior I leveled into the 50s (Gift of the Narru is beyond overpowered for leveling a warrior or rogue BTW) all of my toons are Horde.

It isn't overpowered. It is nice but it won't help you in a fight. I used it as a faster way to get health back after fighting mobs.

I've read it doesn't scale well to 70, but for like, 1-30 its VASTLY more useful than any other class racial. Maybe Blood Fury, but only for classes that don't heal.

At 30 it was still like, 1/3rd of my health on a 3 minute cooldown. This is pretty impressive since its in the form of a HoT. As a warrior you only have to take 1.5 seconds to cast it (which isn't even enough time to lose a significant amount of Rage) before you charge the next mob. You don't have to channel it like a bandage and it doesn't break on damage like a lolwell hot.

I regularly commit hate crimes against the gnome race. I just love hearing their death sound, and seeing their little tiny bones in the ground when they res :D

Most of the time when I run across an enemy lowbie, I'll leave them alone...maybe like a 10% chance I'll kill them. If its a gnome, then more like a 70% chance I'll kill them.

Dwarves are a distant second. Nelf are probably the ones I hate the least.

Im feeling hte gnome hate in BGs.. as soon as I pop out of stealth I get nuked by everyone nearby..
If thats cause the horde acctually defend their healers, or everyone just hates me I dunno.. hehe.

I went alliance just to join some friends that already started on that server.
I wanted to go horde on a PVP server, but were gangpressed into ally on non pvp.
Got some horde alts on a pvp server tho, hopefully Ill get one of em to 70 and find a decent guild one day.

BTW, I find drenai unbearably gay, specially the male and its run cycle animations.
Blood elves are also terrible...

All comes down to friends. Where they are, there status in the game..ie lvl 70...will it help?.

Neither fraction really stands out as bieng..omfg its awsome to be side X...

It all comes down to..which side is ure friends on..and who will you enjoy with..and then you have to look at the playtime you plan to put in..compared to them../etc...also having a good lvl 70 few friends will really help you get off the starting zones.

PvP all comes down to how well which side communicates...aside from AV, AB/WSG/EOS are games where you can team up with your mates...again...all comes down to friends..

at 70 it is nothing. Actually below 35 it is good but those levels go so fast with the reduced xp per level and increase xp per quest. It just doesn't matter. Besides, warriors are the hardest class to level.

Draenei are fun to kill too. When they die it sounds kind of like somebody just got punched real hard while they were joking around. I don't actively pursue them like I do gnomes though. Worst thing I ever did to a draenei lowbie was a driveby moonfiring. (Found a level 47 draenei hunter and just kept hitting moonfire as I was passing by him without the need for me to stop or turn around or anything, just kept on going :D )

Yeh....I hate gnomes.
I have to admit that I do pick on them in BGs.
Infact...almost everyone that I play with on the horde side hates them to.
So yeh, its likely you are getting picked on.

I play horde...but seriously, I cant stand Belfs either...
So very very gay.

Ahahaha...so true :)
And dont forget that the only way alli can win a BG is is they are a premade.
They wont win AV, so they will boycott it instead making our wait times over an hour.

Yup...its the world of warcraft that we play.

On the server Im on Allies almost always win AV, loose AB and WSG (always horde premades), and EOTS can go either way (unless its a horde premade).

Horde kicks ass at healing tho, which alliance really lacks usually, and they protect their healers, while most alliance players seem to just ignore the horde healers.
I always go for them, and with luck I can get one down before I die, at anyrate ive disrupted healing with stunlock tho.

Yeah alliance priests are all too busy running around in shadowform and dying instead of trying to heal now and again. I had one run yesterday where I was kept healed and was tearing through the horde. Then another where nobody healed and I died in a few seconds.

Shadow bolt crits for 4789
Warlock: zomg we are nerfed!

That would be your battlegroup rather than your server.

Heh..it works the other way around for me with EOTS.
I needed to farm EOTS marks for my epic pvp mace....and I needed 40 of them.
Which was a lot of EOTS when you keep constantly coming up against PM's!

I find unless Im in a PM myself, EOTS is a BIG pain in the bum.....it seems to be the one BG that alli actually bother making PMs for themselves.
They may not always be good PMs...but its still hard to turn the game around when they all stand at the bottom on the starting area and attack before you even get to the ground.

I think there should be a server where you can play PM against PM..if thats the way you want to go.
Otherwise is just an unfair disadvantage.

But...its the only way the alli can win....we all know that :)
