A couple of friends recently joined us playing WoW.
V said “oh, the alliance are the good guys and the horde are the bad guys”. I contradicted.. I believe the horde vs. alliance is kind of like Repubican vs Democrat (I’m not going to say who’s which though). It’s a political difference. That said, I can remember when I thought horde==evil. I can remember choosing alliance because I didn’t want to be a “bad guys”. By the time I learned differently I already had several Alliance characters in my 20s and was associated with an established guild.
I wonder if that’s why alliance population is so much bigger than horde population.
