And if the high elves could were playable. What race would give the horde that has the same lore and appearance that the alliance?.
Because it would seem unfair to give a "new" race to the horde, and we give one already has the other faction.
That's like demanding for something that was never been given. Horde is not losing anything. These aren't even Blood Elves themselves. They're High Elves with lore and everything already connected to the Alliance. This seems more like that special snowflake feeling, "only I can have it, if someone else gets it, I'm 'losing' and something must be given to me to make up for that".
Anyways, take a look a this. Let's just assume the Horde race is Ogre:
- Alliance will have: Human, Night Elf, Dwarf, Gnome, Draenei, Worgen and Pandaren, more High Elves.
- Horde gets: Orc, Tauren, Troll, Undead, Blood Elf, Gobling and Pandaren, more Ogres.
Both factions have 8 different races. 2 of them happen to be on both sides. 1 of them was added for both sides at the same time through a single starting zone, while the other was added sooner for one and later for another.
Also, High Elves will probably be even better than Pandaren. Differently from those pandas, they have lore and a past with the Alliance. Because they're being added later, they will have a unique starting zone and maybe even racials. In concept they are the same race, but the background and mechanics in game can be totally different and new.

I don't think the "Horde needs to get an Alliance race" at all. It always sound like people demanding for balance on the amount of losses in lore. Anyways, think for a moment. If we give them one race, what's the result? Horde will have 3 races that the Alliance has, while the Alliance will only have 2.
Either way, yea, reformed Eredar would fit on the Horde. They could be like the Forsaken, but demon related instead of undead.
