Even if my portrait says I'm a gnome. Deep inside, I'm undead and priest.
Let me tell you, my experience with private servers hasn't been the best, the Horde let me know at low level about my sin for becoming Alliance.
So I decided to join the dark side and be the one who controls the Hillsbrad Foothills (the "no go zone" for early 30's).

That's a tough choice for me! I was more inclined to join the Alliance and make a Horde alt (since I like to see both sides of the story), but the vast majority of my friends are going Horde, so I'm switching to a Forsaken main at launch.

who do people pick Alliance more often than Horde?
If they're not human, they like the race and don't really care for the collective faction they're in. If they are then self-identifying as one is probably the biggest player here. Most people that play alliance nowadays are just the ones that didn't give in to the constant peer pressure from THOSE hordes. You know the kind, the ones with greasy neckbeards constantly throwing shit over to the blue side in every community site and forum.

...if we're talking 2004: LotR was still THE shit and 'For the horde!' wasn't a big thing yet.

I never got this. The absolute biggest and strongest playable races, bundled with the guys who refused to stay dead say they like the horde because they're the underdogs, yet when they crush in numbers, popularity and representation they seem to forget about being the "ragtag" group of outcasts and go full Garrosh with the superiority complex.

I've been getting some really mixed signals on this matter over the years.

Well if you say you’re picking alliance a lot of the time people just laugh and try to bully you into picking the horde instead cause they’re “superior”, so it’s really no wonder horde fairs better on polls.

Horde is for the elite and Alliance is for the kiddos they say, but I’d rather have proper housing ;)

I would say Elite will be on both sides. Both present potential for it.

The argument to go Horde because I want to be an underdog, I understand that. You want to be special and have your own rules, who doesnt.
Both factions have valid reasons to be played as. There is no such thing as kids or neckbeards playing Alliance or Horde exclusively. There are such players on both sides.
I feel like there is big difference between individual races of factions, therefore you shouldnt throw them in the same category. They might be in the same faction but lets face it, that doesnt mean they have the same interests.

They claimed I didn't but I did...

for me horde has never been about being the underdogs or picking the bad guys. when i first started playing i was a night elf and loved the whole aesthetic of them. but just, being a part of the alliance as a faction... the feel was wrong. so i tried out horde instead and it just, felt way better. like it fit me more, can't really explain why. maybe it was the zones we got, the npcs, the cities. and i really hated stormwind ahah

I main a druid and I just find the aesthetics of Night Elfs to be far superior to that of Taurens. That being said, if my friends decide to go Horde I'll most likely follow.

You say it isnt about being underdog for you, but your logo, profile banner and name say otherwise, you seem like typical edge lord, anime anti-hero. :smile:

I am a bit torn on this one. I played every race back in the beginning ( sorry folks not gonna call it a flavor) and prefer Dwarves/Humans for alliance and Undead/orcs for The Horde the most, but I can't decide which I want to start with. Running an undead mage in retail right now so maybe Alliance to start.
