  1. To Mike,

    I fully support and respect your right to hate the Alliance, I support ganking low-levels, I support camping, I support being an absolute asshole to the enemy team… because I am Alliance and I fucking HATE Horde and will kill mercilessly ALL who I come across. I leveled on a PvP server, and it kept me on my toes and caused me to have a lot of “fun” encounters against the Horde – even though I was being ganked by high-level players, I still have fond memories due to how I managed to avoid/escape them. But with all that “fun” comes built up rage, and I will unleash that rage upon ALL Horde come classic. I will do some low-ball shit. I will level a priest so I can mind control Horde players, drop them off a mountain into a different zone so they die on top of a cliff and can’t recover their bodies. I will level a hunter as well, get a generic, low-level wolf pet and name him Wolf, go to Horde starting areas and using Eye of the Beast will trick low-level players into attacking my Wolf, tagging themselves in the process, and then proceed to make them quit the game by camping the shit out of them, because he’s a low-level now, but will eventually grow up to be a filthy Horde scum who goes to Redridge to camp level 18 Alliance questers, and I will make damn sure that he at least has a reason to do it now. But most importantly, I will go to Black Rock Mountain and wait for a prepped guild that just got World Buffs to arrive so I can waste that world buff of theirs and give them yet another reason to hate the Alliance! Come at me, bro! See you on the battlefield >:)

    1. Pete, thanks for the great reply! I would love to get you in on a call representing the Alliance in a faction debate for the show, let me know if you’re keen!


      1. Thanks, Josh, sounds like it would be great, but as someone who only started playing in 1.12 and got to level 40ish before TBC pre-patch came (and then launch), I feel like I would be a poor representative of Alliance in Vanilla – I would rather not take such a large responsibility on – just wanted to get off my chest how I felt when I was leveling in Vanilla and how I look forward to making Horde pay for that.
