Following that logic, wouldn't it be better to join them?

Generally speaking, once an orc decides you're an enemy, you're their enemy for life.

They might be willing to put you on a lower spot in their "enemy for life" list if you're willing to help them kill other races first, but that's only because one of the more prominent leaders involved doesn't hate you for beating the shit out of him a few months before.

If only that were a fact. Then the Alliance would have all the grounds they'd need to kill every last orc.

It's a fact, but the game's overriding moral signifier is how someone feels about the Horde.

Anyways, yeah, I know how Hellscream1 feels, as I still wish I could have pushed Thrall into the Maelstrom during Dragon Soul's ending cinematic.

Someone linked me to a thread there where people were talking about my travelogue, using its interpretation of WoW as a basis for a forum-post multiverse conquest game. Seemed like an interesting place.

After which, I would probably have pushed you both in.

And then I'd push you in. We should make a game about this.

I think that's the point.

EDIT: Anyhow...
Quote:
(1) Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! Ha ha ha!
(1) Fire! Fire! Waa-aaaaaa! Ha!
(2) Looky looky. The great Durotan has come down from his mountain to play with the Skulls.
(2) Pretty words, pretty promises. We will join your Wolves, but only if we can remain Skulls, and burn any iron orcs we find.
(1) We will treat you as allies, not as slaves. There will be plenty of vengeance to go around if you join with us.
(2) So be it. Remember this moment, Wolf chief, when you witness our revenge.
(2) Burn burn burn burn torch and burn and cinder and burn and FIRE!
The Iron Horde is enslaving other Orcs who don't want to join them.

What makes the Iron Horde the right Orcs to join, and not the Orcs who oppose them?

Any Orc who values their freedom and refuses to give into fear would stand against them.

By that logic, you can't kick me into the Maelstrom that said.

That said, you can't be on the Alliance. The Archivist is a Diablo class.
