The only time I've felt unwelcome was when the pre BFA stuff happened and a lot of people were going on that "If you played Horde you are a bad person IRL" and comparing people to Nazis and other dumb crap. I mainly use this site for WoW forums etc and I did not want to visit it, it kind of felt like the whole "If you don't have a rare pet skin you don't care about your pets as much" thing all over agian >.> (Wow that's a call back to something years old haha)
I...don't remember the rare pet thing? I must have missed it and I'm glad I did. Yikes.
It just gets tedious when people claim Horde biase because of a stupid mistake and followup decision by Blizzard. Blizzard screwed up, then made a not-so-great decision about it. It's not like they sat around a conference table wearing capes and top hats**, twirling handlebar mustaches and lauging evilly about how much it was going to piss off the Alliance. Yet, as often seems to happen, if something happens that benefits Horde members, it's Obvious Horde Bias. If it'd been the other way around, the people posting about bias would, I suspect, claim it gave them no big advantage and that it was no big deal.
It really can wear down some of us after a while.
No, they don't sit around a conference table. That's silly. They sit under the giant orc statue in front of their building.
And it's coincidence that these design errors always tend to favor their favorite faction.
I take issue with you saying that if it had been the other way around, that I would claim it was no big deal. I think I was pretty clear that it would be a big deal either way. It would be extremely unfair to the Horde players and that isn't right.
I'm not saying that Horde bias is deliberate, but when the culture at the company clearly favors one faction, it's bound to have an effect, consciously or not. Maybe you don't notice it as much because you're Horde?
