Would you roll the opposite faction?

General Discussion
Do you have loyalty to your faction, or would you roll horde and alliance for a taste of everything?

Honestly, I like gnomes and worgen, but I absolutly couldn't bare the night elves, space goats, and all those human paladins/DK's.

I hate Night elves and goats with a burning passion for some reason (and human pally's/DK's just because there are SOOO many it is obnoxious, same reason I hate belf pallys), and every time I kill one, it feels oh so good. And the only circumstance I would ever go alliance is if my guild and all of my friends went alliance :P

What about you?
This mage used to be a Blood Elf.

My main problems with the Horde are aesthetic. And, not the fact that they lack pretty races. It's the fact that up until BC, the majority of Horde zones were made of sand! I hated it. The undead areas were just as bad with all of their rotting trees and plague dust everywhere.

I don't mind areas like that, but if EVERY AREA that you level up to until you hit end game looks the same, then it gets boring.

believe it or not, in the near-six years playing this game i have never once rolled an alliance toon.

when i joined horde in dec '04 they were vastly underplayed (about 30% of my server) and we were at a disadvantage, and i liked it. now we are the most-played faction by far. this saddens me. i miss being the underdog. so many alliance have switched sides it sickens my heart.

Atleast it shows the horde's obvious superiority.
Alliance are 53% according to WowCensus. So you are still the "Underdog".
I prefer Horde, but I have 2 80 Alliance and another on the way. I love both factions.
I have 4 level 80 alliance and 4 level 80 horde on the same server, whichever side I'm playing on I am loyal to, that means I don't snitch when there are raids and I look upon the other faction with disdain. I've even talked bad about my other characters on the other side :P
I would roll an alliance charecter. It's just a game, no reason to be loyal to anyone.
I've leveled to 80 with both factions, and have alts of both factions, but I definitely strongly favor Horde. I find myself coming to the end of my rope a lot quicker when playing an Alliance toon.
I play both factions. I like to experience both storylines.
Never!

I can just imagine rolling some ally toon, running into Stormwind and hearing nothing but HUH HUH HUH over and over.

No thanks.

Wowcensus gets it's figures from people in guilds using their addon.

If you are not in a guild that uses their addon you are not counted.
I have 3 Alliance 80s, so yes. Planning 7 more for Cata.
I never feel quite comfortable amongst Horde races or cities. It's just not home.
I have no loyalty to Alliance, but I do prefer the Elwynn/Westfall quests, and for my own personal roleplay reasons, humans in general.
What is this "loyalty" you speak of?

/I play both factions because I find the inability to communicate with the Horde to be ridiculously and needlessly limiting
I am horde through and through, but I did make a lowbie human a few months ago to play with a guildmate of mine on an RP/PvP server. It was heartbreaking for me to get ganked for the first time by a troll priest, and it made me not want to play her anymore!
