Alliance vs Horde?
Return to board index
Yes, I'm sure this is a very old subject, but I am very noob and started WoW about a month ago.
, I found out everyone likes Horde better
Why is this? I am a Draenei Shaman, and I think they're pretty good; not that I have tried any Horde characters...
So why is Horde better than Alliance?
My primary is an Alliance Paladin, but I have a couple Horde characters. Advantages I see for the Horde:
Undead can hold their breath longer.
Some of the Horde characters look "cooler" in some ways.
Some of their lands are more interesting.
As for any technical aspects of the game, I couldn't tell you. I haven't played Horde well enough to know.
Against the Horde, I found that many players of Horde characters
a bit antisocial. However, they also tend to be a bit more mature (or simply more reserved) than Alliance characters.
My suggestion to you? Play both sides. You may eventually find you prefer the Horde. As for huge debates, I don't get involved. I like what I like, and very little will happen to change that.
Horde are renowned for having an older playerbase than alliance. Most people dont want to be bossed around by someone younger than them
Horde has the mature reputation, I'm not sure if that's necessarily true. There's plenty of little kids, griefers, and wonderful and intelligent people in both factions. It is however a fact that Alliance generally has more people and Horde wins more battlegrounds. Everyone in WoW suffers a bit from the "greener on the other side" syndrome, with both faction and class choice, don't let it get to you and just play what you like.
I've grouped about 50/50 with players of both sides. There's no discernible difference between them, and anyone arguing otherwise is spouting bunk and can't possibly prove it.
There's rotten apples on both sides of course, what else would you expect? :) Pick the side YOU like the most; if you enjoy being a draenei then by all means continue.
Horde have more races with horns/tusks. Therefore we are better.
Welcome to Wowhead by the way!
horde has taurens.taurens have big stuff inside their pants.
and anything can be better than space goats who fully depend on another race
end of discussion.
I heard a theory a number of years ago about the difference between Alliance and Horde players.
It stated that people who gravitated towards PvP play, tended to like Horde characters more than Alliance toons.
I've played on both sides and have seen a bit of that, but you get PvP'ers on both sides, so who can say if it's true or not.
As a side note, my current main is a Belf Pally and I don't PvP much at all (because I suck at it).
To sum it up, play whatever toon you like the best and have fun.
Welcome to Wowhead by the way!
I wouldn't say the Horde is better. You might take a little while to read the blogs we wrote on the subject:
For the Horde...?
The Sungrass is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Zone
I'm a little mystified by the idea that Horde players are more "mature". Especially recently, the new influx of horde players seems to have completely shattered this belief for me. (Particularly since the arrival of BEs, a problem that having access to DKs has only multiplied). At least on my server, Horde players have a tendency to think they're god's greatest gift to WoW, and that Alliance are all scum. I'm sure this is reversed on the Alliance side.
I really wish at sometime, both sides could actually team up and fight evil together. Alas, from what the quests in Icecrown tell me, it's not going that way. =(
Well...i say horde cuz i do horde...in vanila wow horde was "mature" and by coming of the be we got our selfs some 10 year olds and now with dk even more but if you have an old guild(i am in mine since wanila)you are good to go
