    Garrosh makes another stupid decision at the start of TH, though, so annoying.

    I dunno, the alliance also hit the horde navy, so it kind of canceled out a potentially really bad situation of the alliance having a fully navy and the horde not having a damn thing to counter act it. Now its just both sides are messed up.

    Also I doubt the air cover provided would have done shit against death wing and the twilight drakes. I mean even the red dragons struggled there.

    Apparently, according to the Alliance quests, the Horde fleet ambushed them :P

    I could swear I remembered reading somewhere that Varian had actually ordered the Alliance fleet not to engage the Horde but I'm having trouble finding that quest. Deathwing wasn't a part of the Horde event (at least, as far as I recall), but the fighters might have been some use in keeping the dragons from stripping almost all of the zeppelins from the fleet.

    In the zep event very clearly deathwing shows up with the twilight drakes.

    I forget your side, but you have done the related Alliance quests? You kill all of their leaders and burn all of their buildings with the stated goal of wiping them out.

    I have done no alliance quests, they are not my faction anymore.

    And Elves have been massacring trolls for ever. It's the one thing they have no qualms over (well that and causing all the problems in the world ever).

    Nah Altrius is still around in BC he wasn't killed off, and there is also one in Felwood that gives you some sympathy for Illidan.

    That demon hunter is actually just the fragment of a demon hunter, and drops a quest item for Alliance. Not sure if he does for Horde as well.

    Either way it was pretty cool finding that in there after jumping into the Whirlpool for the heck of it.

    You're kidding, right? They got their foothold due to the 'diplomacy' with the dragonmaw, and only got that far because of their navy, not their airforce. Garrosh lost the lives of his gunship pilots and his entire gunship fleet as well as cost the positioning of the goblin base to be totally fucked up by his unprovoked attack.

    The Horde army is pretty fucking bad.

    In silverpine the Horde fleet (3 or 4 warships) gets taken out by a group of like..8 Worgen. Who have no seige weapons or heavy weapons whatsoever.

    The Forsaken army also gets massacred at pretty much every turn throughtout the zone's storyline.

    There's an alliance camp just chilling outside of the entrance to Mulgore..forcing the tauren captial to barricade itself in.

    There's two alliance bases in Durotar, one right next to the Deakspear capital AND the Orc training grounds.

    And none of this explains why Garrosh has suddenly become a Fel Orc with a head 50% too small for his body.

    To be fair, the Forsaken army did beat all the alliance in Hillsbrad as well as almost entirely annihilate Gilneas before the rest of the humans showed up to help. It was probably a bad thing that Worgen are apparently immune to their super-plague.

    So what's the generally recommended raid order for a 10-man guild? We started with Blackwing Descent and got crushed by the first couple bosses. We tried Throne of the Four Winds today and got crushed again. We'll probably try Bastion of Twilight in a couple of days, but we're kind of getting frustrated.

    Didn't the cataclysm wipe out Southshore with tidal waves though?

    And the Alliance still maintain a base that is a hole in the fucking ground in Arathi, it's the least defensible position in the world ever.

    I guess they won Andorhal though.

    Horde won Andorhal.

    And yes, Alliance being in Arathi is really dumb. I think it was just because of the proximity to wetlands for leveling progression; but since they have no presence in Hillsbrad, what is the point?

    Securing supply and transportation lines between the Ironforge and Wildhammer Dwarves. They have that new tunnel connecting arathi to hinterlands that implies that, but they never bother to really flesh it out with the storyline (at least it didn't seem like it on Horde side, unlike the dustwallow highway)

    this is funny because all I've been able to see is how the Alliance apparently are a bunch of wet-eared nincompoops that fall over dead whenever horde wander anywhere nearby

    Hillsbrad owned, Ashenvale owned, Darkshore in the process of being owned, new Horde bases in pretty much every zone where there were just Alliance before

    the only "Alliance" that actually have put up a fight and gained ground are the Kul Tiras crazies from Northwatch who were sinking merchant marine ships for no real reason in vanilla

    great role models

    the whole thing leaves me feeling that I picked the "wrong" faction and just kind of tired of the whole AvH thing that I never liked in the first place, because now I happen to be on the side that's basically a bunch of useless morons.

    at least Horde are led by a mostly militarily effective moron.

    let's not forget that the Alliance lost probably their most respectable leader because he got turned into a lawn ornament, along with failing to retake a capital city for how many goddamned years? and losing another capital city instead.

    yeah, the Alliance sure are kicking ass

    Blizzard, as a company, is very big on making humanity as flawed and douchey as possible. They do it in Starcraft too. Sure, Jim Raynor is a bastion of awesomeness, but everything else about the Terrans is a bleak picture with more backstabbing and general assholery than the other races. Sarah Kerrigan is a way more sympathetic character as the Queen of Blades than Mengsk ever was.

    The same is true in Warcraft. Arthas is an ass. King Varian is an ass. Pretty much every other human character is an ass with the exception of Jaina.

    Its just what they do. In Blizzard games, humans are asses.

    that doesn't make it any more fun to be on the side that clearly the designers don't care much for

    it's especially hilarious to me that Stormwind, just now, has barely started to set up the scaffolding to even begin to repair the superficial damage Deathwing did to the Valley of Heroes

    meanwhile, the Dragonmaw Clan sets up an entirely new base -- virtually a new city -- in an effective matter of minutes

    King Chin makes a giant statue of himself in his own courtyard while the people in Westfall starve, homeless

    we're missing a district? I don't know what you're talking about. Damn, that is a nice statue of me

    has anyone ever felt Alliance pride? Anybody? Just curious. Like, anyone, ever. Well, there was that Bolvar guy, he was pretty badass. Oh wait, he's gone. Replaced with a one-dimensional running gag.

    Its like that Horde side. Garrosh has shown some interesting points (stonetalon, Twilight) but he is still a douche. Sylvannas is doing her own thing. The trolls are doing thier own thing. Blood Elves havent changed. The taurens are the only saving grace. After loosing thier faction leader they basically state "Hey its our job to try to show them the way no matter how bad it is"
