What is the main reason on why you don't play the opposing faction?

I play Alliance now because Garrosh makes me feel like a war criminal every time I sign in on my main.

I'm almost blind. If you think that's a problem then you haven't seen my skills. Spite motivates, believe me.

I like both factions for different reason, but I do favor Horde even though I started as Alliance in classic.

Now that I am thinking about it, the reason I am Horde is that I am in the same guild for 6 years, and I DO prefer to remain Horde, but long run? Yeah I can totally see myself rerolling on the Alliance side if a miracle happened and I left this guild which I been with again for over 6 years. Won't even stop there and say "I will miss Horde" even if that's true because like I said I like both for different reasons.

In fact, I wish a miracle happens and I start fresh on the Alliance. I won't faction change any of my current characters because their accomplishments in my eyes belong to the Horde, but I would totally be up to starting a new.

Because its too much of a mission to start again. I love horde, in fact I have a horde tattoo. Yet I play alliance. Why? because I have invested too much time into my (once upon a time) alt and now developed a love for that class/character. "Why not just race change him?" you ask because I play with a friend who prefers alliance.

I'm an adult, why would I play anything but Alliance?


hehe The sad thing is most kids roll horde on my server :( and I like the horde so I either restart on a new sever and.....take a year to re-earn all my stuff. Or I suffer Alliance BS.

I main an alliance warrior. But my alt is a resto/ele horde shaman.

Trolls are awesome, i love the starting area and org, yet i love SW too.

Once my main is capped and geared (as geared as one gets, while being a LFR hero right?) i will continue my sexy shaman.

I usually pick humans as my first character in games, which obviously sent me to the Alliance. Like someone said earlier, familiarity kept me there. But, when I tried Horde, I noticed the players were......let's just say "not nice". I knew my class, but I didn't know the locations of things (Org is confusing), and people would curse me out for asking questions of almost any kind. Yeah, I could google anything, but why would I want to be part of a community that wouldn't WANT to help a "new" player out. And I won't even start on dungeon party behavior.

I played alliance because i wanted to play dwarf. Nothing about lore or good /bad sides. I didn't bother to play horde because i prefered spending the time elsewhere.

You're the hero Gamefaqs deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
#38Glockass1Posted 5/14/2013 3:26:19 AM
We got bored playing Horde for 4 years straight so me and my friends decided to go Alliance.

My friends played Horde when I started and I stuck with it ever since. I do have an Alliance character that I dust off every now and then, but have only played it a little bit in Pandaria.

The Alliance races are just so... boring. Humans, short humans, even shorter humans, purple humans with big ears, werewolf humans, and those blue goat things with man-boobs.

Oh, and for the most part, they aren't even interesting variations on those over-done fantasy races; they are the most cliched and boring possible. Dwarfs drink beer, elves are tree huggers, blah de blah de blah...
