I'm wondering how they could have gone about starting the heated conflict in MoP and yet not make anyone upset.
I'm sure that if the Alliance had attacked a Horde settlement there would be a similar thread complaining about the Horde being made into victims, and how the Alliance were being made into antagonists.
Except its almost always Alliance getting the shaft or the worse part of the deal.
We destroy Camp Taurajo. Horde retaliation? They wipe out our entire army.
Ashenvale is a stalemate but the Horde are still closing in.
Hillsbrad, Southshore is wiped out completely. Absolutely nothing is done.
In Swamp of Sorrows, where get a questline to take down Stonard. We weaken its forces, defenses, everything. Yet it still stands. Arguably, Theramore is the human version of Stonard. Now Theramore is getting the same treatment but apparently with lasting destruction while Stonard gets to stay with nothing different? (i'm not expecting things to be fair, but it appears that Horde get a better deal in more aspects of the game, especially in updated quests).
Gilneas we actually reclaim but can't go back?
In many other zones we get small encampments while Horde get metal fortresses. Alliance is apparently the more technologically (with regards to stone masonry, metalworking, etc.) advanced faction yet Horde can build these forts almost overnight? Last I checked, Goblin tech shouldn't be that reliable.
