All out Horde VS Alliance, who wins?

Story Forum
Post Limit:
This is my scenario:

Undercity,org,Thunderbluff,and silvermoon are on the most northern side of the barrens.

Stormwind,ironforge,darnassus, and the exodar are on the most southern side of the barrens.

Everything in between them just went away, that include the crossroads, quilboar,quilboar, northwatch, all that stuff EXCEPT the great divide.

If both sides sent out their troops, who would win? This means forsaken,orc,tauren,and blood elf forces would be running out, same with humam,dwarf,night elf, and draenei.

There is a lot of stuff that could happen. Undercity can use plague bombs, ironforge can blow crap up, exodar can fly up and plant iteself on the other cities, I cannot figure out who would win.
On an open field, the entirety of each armies brought to bear

Alliance would win.
They have a bigger army
I think the Alliance mainly due t the fact that the Horde's gunships don't have a good track record for surviving, and would probably be shot down quite easily.

That, and Alliance has the Focusing Iris and the powers of the Thunder King, now.
Stalemate, always will be a stalemate.

Why? Orcs and humans
Blood elves and Worgens
Night elves and trolls
tauren and dranei
dwaf vs forsaken
goblins vs gnomes
panda vs panda

I think you mean mutually assured destruction. Mutually exclusive destruction would actually be the opposite, where one and only one side is destroyed while the other is left largely intact.
about half the Horde is stuck between the stone age and the iron age, while the lowest tech Alliance race (humans) are late renaissance, and everybody else is industrial age or better. We have a massive technological advantage, and though the hard numbers are no longer canon because they were in the RPG books, we've always been depicted with a significant manpower advantage, and we have multiple WMDs and heroes that are basically walking WMDs, while the Horde only has one, Thrall.

Looking at it through a lens of military and technological realism, I think the Alliance has this in the bag.

Mutually exclusive destruction would be pretty funny.

"Damnit, both sides got slightly destroyed again! Alright, everyone, rez up and do it again! And get it right this time!"

As I was posting that I was thinking "... The acronym is MAD. I messed up somewhere."

But yeah. My vote is for mutually assured destruction.
Everyone would be killed except of course Thrall, but he would have no one, and end up dying alone and scared. Is that the victory you wanted!?
Well that depends, whos more OP at the moment? Thrall, Malfurion, Jaina. Whos plot armor is thicker? Haha
If the undercity uses Val'kry( pardon my spelling), then the horde would get more soldiers and Alliance would be outnumbered and crushed.

The thing is they already lost A LOT of Val'kry and putting them in battle to raise the dead is very risky since the Alliance troops would focus on them first.
I don't think they would have them on the frontline, it would be after major battles. Battle for Crossroads, everyone hacks away, and after the battle they come in and make undeads or basically dks.
The Legion wins.
The Horde would need some sort of third party help like demon blood, divine bell, etc.

The Alliance is just stronger if it's a fair fight.

Either the Old Gods or the Burning Legion, whichever had a hand to play first.
The Alliance would probably win, though both sides would likely be decimated, and then whatever was left would get picked off by the Legion.

Or something like that.

Quantity doesn't beat quality. In line combat Humans, Night Elves and Dwarves don't hold up to Tauren and Orcs in size and strength.

Then again, Blizzard seem to ignore the idea that Orcs can give all their boyz armour as easily as humans can and they give grunts underpants and shoulderpads to go fight in. So it's too hard to say.
