A neutral faction partisan's worst nightmare.
I'd call it the 4th war.

I think we're at the Fifth War. Maybe. Depends if the campaigns in Outland and against the Lich King counted as their own numbered wars or not. If they do, then Fifth, otherwise we're on Fourth.

Also, this war started before Garrosh took the reigns (Officially, at Wrathgate/Battle of the Undercity), he just pursued it to a greater degree after the Cataclysm.

Not like it matters if the person who declared the war had valid reasons to do so anyway.

EDIT: "Declared" not "started".

It's not clear when this war started. You'd think it was then, but then the Shattering and Wolfheart indicate there was a peace immediately after that time. Then even after Cataclysm, ToW suggests that the Alliance and Horde weren't in a full war, only taking part in skirmishes.

So who knows, maybe 6.0 will tell us there never was a war. Not like things could get any more conflicting.

There's also the matter of defining what actually was war and not. For example, it was always my opinion that the PVP factions (Frostwolf, Warsong, League of Arathor, ect) were not proper members of their factions, but loosely allied organizations taking advantage of mercenaries to pursue their agendas. Whereas, others believe that what I thought was brushfire skirmishing was the Fourth War starting back in Classic.
"First/Second/Third War" describe conflict between the Burning Legion and Azeroth, not between the Alliance and the Horde.

If it did then the First War wouldn't have been described as such (because there was no Alliance) nor would the Third War have been described as such (because the Alliance and Horde never got into open warfare.)

So, this isn't the "fourth war."
world war 1

war of stupid

war caused by thrall being blind

war of inducing forum(mostly lordaeron) rage

Am I alone in hoping that the war does end? is there anything really keeping it going outside of garrosh?


Limited resources, old wounds and butt hurt can keep this war going on for quite some time just by themselves.

And if those top being believable, we can take a beloved Alliance leader, feed him crazy pills, and you guys can get the Garrosh this time.
I'm calling it the Fourth War, which began at the Battle for the Undercity.

I second this.

But really I would say the conflict has been going steady since Vanilla.


For me it's like Vanilla-WotLK it was a cold war style tension. The War proper began either at Angrathar or at the Undercity - it was the first time either faction took arms and carried a heavy assault at the other.

idk but the last battle where the alli pulls everything together and attacks the horde like ninjas (ITS GONNA HAPPEN WATCH!) it should be called Operation Cleansing Evil (kill garrosh >:D or cleans the sha from him w/e take him out idc)

I might agree with Garrosh's War, save for the fact that it only might serve to further center blame on him.


I expect the rest of the Horde will be happy to place the blame on him once he goes down.

Garrosh is a symptom, not a cause
Are you even serious?

When the 4/6ths of the Horde leadership go "No, please" and he goes" Tough !@#$% do it anyway" I'd say that's no longer Symptom level.
The war where the cosmetics industry shuts down and the distresses human vixens and blood elf debutantes (the men) cause a riot and storm the goblin-ran factories demanding compensation for their looks going to the Fel. Violent words turn into physical action as hoop earrings are taken off and pressed-on nails are removed. The human women and the blood elf men retaliate and hold the goblin factory workers responsible for their CEO's irresponsible negligence of the population's dependency on cheaply-made but mass-produced lip glosses and eye shadow that perfectly matches the night sky over Ashenvale. We called it the Great Fashion Starve of '13.
