Default Least favorite Horde & Alliance characters

Just because there was a favorite thread...

Horde
1. Vol'jin for doing dick shit for most of WoW's lifespan. Gives Garrosh lip for calling him out on it, then gets mad when he gets told to fuck off. Same shit with the rebellion, does dick shit and gets the credit. For some reason this wins him fans.

2. Sylvannas, not because of her recent antics, but mostly because of the near fanaticism from Forsaken fans.

3. Thrall's wife, I don't really hate her but I still don't like her. I because I wanted Thrall to bang Jaina.

Alliance
1. Turalyon, don't really hate him either, just dislike the fanaticism. I also don't like the way he's written.

2. Vareesa for doing dick shit for her people and then getting mad at them for trying to survive. I guess she was too busy taking human dick to give a shit about what happened to her homeland.

I can't think of any Horde character I like. The only Orc I actively like (as opposed to simply not hating, like Saurfang) is http://wowpedia.org/Jaruk_Bloodfyre because he was the only one who thought about people other than himself and that manifested in his conscious rejection of the Horde.

I really hope we see Jaruk Bloodfyre in WoD. He is what Orcs should be like: fierce, powerful, stubborn and honorable. I wouldn't have any problem with the Orcs if they were more like him.

Alliance: Anduin. I'm sick to death of him and want him to go away.

Horde: Go'el. I'm sick to death of him and want him to go away.


You know what's a shame? I can't think of a single character I genuinely like. There are a bunch I don't mind, but not a single one that I actively would enjoy seeing pop up in questing or in a story.

From Alliance
Varian: biggest Mary Sue in all the Warcraft franchise... I's no surprise that since he reappeared the lore became worse... "Jump the shark" indeed. Just to make Varian look good Blizz spat in the face of far better char than him, and made "always chaotic evil" an entire race.

From Horde
Garrosh: inconsistent characterization, and through him Blizz destroyed the interesting Horde redemption's arc begun with Lord of the Clans. Especially for orcs, imho they were far more interesting as "noble and honorable savages", instead of "chaotic evil cheap knockoff of warhammer orks".

Pretty much this.

I'd have to say I hate Baine the most on Horde and Varian the most on Alliance.

Ok, let me tell you I never got the "noble" vibe in WC3 and WoW's Orcs. Savage, yes. But not noble.

WC3 Orcs definitely had the noble savage thing going on, don't be silly. They want to be done with the Humans by going to Kalimdor, they save multiple groups from death, they team up with former enemies to save the world. The noble elements are very clear.

I thought the orcs were sympathetic. What was so wrong with me to make me believe that and invest in that for years!

Literally the first thing that they do in Warcraft 3 is murder some humans in cold blood to free a war criminal.

Between all the retcons, did Grom actually get a chance to commit any warcrimes?

In BtDP he kills a shitload of Alliance and attacks Nethergarde Keep in the name of Ner'zhul's Horde and in Lord of the Clans we see he's still been attacking Human settlements. If I recall this was handwaved with "We don't kill the children" or some shit which ignores the fact that they're still killing their fathers and mothers.

So there's no distinction between normal war and warcrimes or what?

Simply being involved in the high command of an unprovoked and unjust war constitutes war crimes. See: Allied war crimes tribunals.

I'm pretty sure anyone who's ever fought against the Alliance is a war criminal, so that probably includes some Alliance members.

Except blood elves. If you fight them you are a war criminal.

Considering the Alliance is a faction of reactionary pacifists yeah basically.

I posted in the wrong thread! Ah! Ha! Haaaaaaaaaah.

My least favorite Horde is Sylvanas and Thrall and I'm not a fan of Velen and Mardadadadadadadadadadada and Rell.
