As an Ally, this whole thing made me think that there is something to all the claims of horde favortism. You guys owned up to it and apologize for that you have my respect, but I need to see it never happens again and you treat players of both factions with equal respect. None of this alliance are sissies or the joke "we'll keep trying" ally slogan, it gotten old a long time ago.As a member of the horde, I don't need to feel like a "badass". If you need for them to tell you it's okay to be a "badass" then you're doing it wrong. Look at Garrosh. Everybody hates him. I love him, but that's beside the point. Varian is a badass. Jaina is a badass. Blizzard doesn't have to treat any faction that they created however they don't want to. People need to stop living in the game. And separate rl and wow.
Yes, when you bash the alliance it's in a spirit of a joke but we're usually on the butt of it, and I'm frankly kind of tired of it. I can't remember the last time I felt like a badass for being an ally.
That "it's only a game" excuse is really played out, but there some legitimacy in the sense that we shouldn't take it so seriously. However, there is more to it than that.
No one likes being the butt of a joke in game or in real life. When a joke is made about someone, usually that person will be a good sport about it. However, when it goes on for years these little jabs stop being fun and you can't help to take offence especially when it's done mostly to you.
Also, I don't want to feel like a loser for choosing the wrong faction in a game that I pay for either.
i'm just asking that blizzard makes fun of the horde once in a while and give the alliance some love.
