Draenei. The male is a walking fridge, and the female makes me feel bad about myself. On second place the Worgen. Female looks like a chihuahua, and the male like a rat.

Draenei were this super alien race that is better than everyone that fell out of a space ship and joined the Alliance. I think that was when the Alliance started to go down hill. They didn't integrate into the world, especially the Alliance, at all.

Forsaken. they can do no wrong, and yet make Nazis seem pleasant. oh wait, sylvanas already puts people she doesn't like in death camps, and boasts the superiority of another kind of being.

....Did I just use godwins law on MYSELF!?

Anyways, the question should be fairly obvious: which race do you dislike/hate the most and why?
Pandaren. The pandaren had a whole expansion devoted to them, and though their history and culture is very well developed and I like that, they're just so thoroughly and universally nice that it's hard for me to take them seriously. They just love everyone and are super friendly and they always assume the best of everyone they meet. That would be fine if there was another side of that coin, but there really isn't any "evil" pandaren characters. The best we have are pandaren who become corrupted by the sha, but even then, you apparently just have to beat the sha out of them and they'll get over it. The pandaren reaction to the war that brings its conflict to their shores is largely: "Oh, that's ok. Want a beer?" The only pandaren with any teeth at all is Taran Zhu, and no one ever listens to the poor guy.

The draenei would be my second choice for exactly the same reason. Hopefully they get more well-rounded in the next expansion, but from everything I've seen it looks like they're just doubling down.

Now, I've always been of the mind that every race is interesting, in their own way, and every race has good characters that I like, but the focus of the game has been so dominated by orcs and humans that every other race is woefully underdeveloped. The worgen and goblins have very little content surrounding them following their starting experience, and those are both races that I think have a lot of potential. Goblins suffer from the same problem the gnomes face; they're small, thus comical. I think if the gnomes were examined through a less farcical lens they could be something really cool and not just the butt of every joke.

Given that the original basis for the Pandaren society was medieval Chinese Empires, it's a wonder that none of the darker periods/aspects made it into their history.

(Instead, it's as if all the bad stuff about Chinese Empires assumed the form of Mogu)

I like the current consensus of Warcraft: Dwarves and Orcs (with Goblins Neutral in the middle)

Nothing wrong in the world indeed

Like a fool, I accidentally clicked on Human by mistake. Can any admin/mod change my vote to Undead? For the Humans were my favourite race, and the Undead are the ones who I dislike the most.

No, fate drove you to the correct choice...

Dwarves are cool I cant help but to like them, they are the most warrior like of the alliance races and have a long standing history of fellowship and honor both to themselves and their gnome/human allies

And the WC3 horde was the shit yo!

Nice to see you too, Mark.

And yeah, I also gotta say the dwarves have been the subject of, in my opinion, the most interesting progression of any race. While Magni's death (or maybe-death) was mirrored in the Horde with Cairne's, the tauren just got Baine to step up, while Ironforge underwent a dramatic political shift, AND they picked up a story beat I had begun to assume had been forgotten (the Dark Iron heir of Bronzebeard).

I must admit, gotta give Blizzard some credit here, because I too thought they'd just totally forgotten about that.

While I've got no real love for them, "Least Liked"? God no, nowhere close.

I would like Goblins more if they dropped the Guido/Jersey Shore nonsense. No offense to people who like it, it shouldn't be the overall cultural set for a race in Warcraft in my opinion.

Kind of hate overused pop culture references overall. Here and there is okay.

I'm just saying, if all the races were throwing a party, who here thinks the night elf would be the most fun to hang out with?

The Night Elf would probably atleast be happy to talk about animals and nature.

The Blood Elf would be all "I'm far too emo hipster to talk to you!" and then suck the Mana out of you. (And no, that's not an Innuendo, chaps.)

The question should be "who'd be the least fun to hang out with?" Obviously that's the goat-saints.

Draenei breeding rituals. It involves a bag and two gnomes, what can go wrong?

Runes

Tauren are just awful.

No change despite moving from a nomadic lifestyle to a sedentary one.

Just pathetic.

Orcs should've sided with the centaur.

I personally don't like the Blood Elves. I didn't have the same amount of fun playing them than, say, the Tauren.

I really dislike blood elf forum posters (mostly those that post about their lack of lore and shit like that). But I really can't stand forsaken. most horde rogues are that race, same goes for warlocks or mages.

And Dwarves would be the most fun, so gogo Dwarves!




I voted Tauren, they're just so bland, maybe even more bland than the Worgen.
