Why can't the Horde just kill the Alliance?

The alliance has;
1. Superior numbers.
2. Superior technology.
3. Superior magic.

The real question is: why is the alliance losing?

I'll give you superior numbers and tech, but not superior magic.

Jaina Proudmoore does not mean you have the most powerful magic.

Draenei have been mages for over 25,000 years. Horde has nothing on that.

No, Medivh, Aegwynn, Jaina Proudmoore, Rhonin, Antonidas are all why Alliance has better magic. Humans have just pumped out more horribly powerful mages than any other race.

Draenei Magic isn't played up at all. We've never seen them using Arcane Magic in any major way, not like the Blood Elves, or even the Humans.

Not to mention the Horde has superior Shamanism, and Voodoo, which is something the Alliance doesn't have at all, as well as control over the Sunwell.

If it wasn't for Kalecgos, Jaina would have turned Orgrimmar into Sea World.

Safer technology. The Alliance does not grasp a certain technology that the Horde does not also understand or use. Plus, the Forsaken have a strong handle on biochemical warfare.

Magic, truthfully, is a tough one, namely because of the endless super-powered-for-no-reason Human Mages. But most of them are either dead or not Alliance at this time, leaving Jaina.

And I don't even know what's happening with Jaina.

That's because we've never SEEN them do ANYTHING, except Velen moving the Blood Elf story along.

And worgen pretty much counter any advantage given by tauren in any case.

Okay?

Again, one mortal magi. If enough people attacked her, she would fall. Hell, that happens to everyone really powerful.

Draenei have always been natural magic users. When aboard the Oshu'gun for long journeys the draenei had plenty of hours to study and practise magic. They are one of the oldest races in the universe and therefore have had a lot of time to research and improve their knowledge of the arcane arts. Since they have had so much knowledge passed down and live such long lives to practise it, the draenei are among the most powerful mages in the known universe.

Your ability to stand by complacently while atrocities are committed, then feign a peaceful nature is barely loathsome at all.

Not possible.
The only ones with a small force are orcs and undead.
Tauren are too peaceful and small.
there are close to no blood elfs.
Goblins are everywhere and are loners.
Trolls are strong but small numbers.

One mortal magi with a fatal attraction to a certain former aspect of Magic...

Still don't have control over the Sunwell, and again, Arcane magic isn't played up in the Draenei Culture. Blood Elves (And High Elves, to a lesser extent) are the most powerful mages as a race.
