Hello everyone. Time to talk about an open problem that isn’t talked enough here. Blizzard of course. But in this specific case, it is also the alliance. Their self inserts as the stories protagonists for no other reason than playable humans and the Power fantasy of dominating the story.
You see, it is pretty much everywhere. The raid on zuldazar is just the latest icing on the cake. Not only is the alliance bursting with protagonist characters and similar allies of the same mindset. Also at the same rate the Horde loses profile, characters, is villain batted and our honor bros leaders can’t stop kissing the booty of their blue team overlords. Blizzard might keep pretending things are equal because if some zones, but they are not. All the relevant plot happens via the pov of characters.
All of those mostly again exclusively alliance. Legion was another good example of this problem. Argus and Valshara to be mentioned. WoD just the same. The oh so big orc addon was turned into another alliance feels good and right addon, with both, intro and epilouge alike, narrated by alliance heroes.
It is flat out catering of a certain Power fantasy of being the center of the story that blizzard told us since vanilla launch. Humans turned from being extinct, with the exception of Theramore, to the biggest power house of Azeroth for no reason. Mostly night elves suffered from that story direction the most.
There are 2 options to solve said problem. Kill a big chunk of the alliance character cast off. Or at least, delete the Horde from the game, so we can stop pretending the horde is more, than either a villain to be killed off for loot. Or another extra sidekick for the heroic alliance.
Cheers and Di chuka Zandalar. Alliance mains do not leave a comment here. You’re (not) welcome.
