Round 1: Team A Analysis – World of Warcraft

27 09 2007



Ok so a brief overview of the Warcraft universe; The Warcraft universe was first introduced in the original Warcraft: Orcs & Humans PC game. This world exists in an ethereal plane called The Twisting Nether. In this universe’s history, inter-world travel is rare, but can be achieved using magical portals. Known worlds include Azeroth, Draenor, Argus, K’aresh, and Xoroth.

Most of the Warcraft content we see in games is set in Azeroth which has three continents:

1.) Eastern Kingdoms

2.) Kalimdor

3.) Northrend

There are also several small islands aside from the three main continents throughout the sea.

The Eastern Kingdoms is the primary home of the Alliance faction and is divided into four sub kingdoms. From north to south:

* Quel’Thalas, a High Elven (now Blood Elven) kingdom that has lost most of its former glory.
* Lordaeron, a former human kingdom that has been overrun by undead.
* Khaz Modan, a Dwarf kingdom.
* Azeroth (the kingdom has the same name as the planet), the last still prosperous human kingdom.

The continent of Kalimdor is a more rugged area and includes areas like the magical forest where the Night Elf race dwells. Kalimdor is the primary home of the Horde faction. The kingdoms and upper/lower halves of the continents are further divided into smaller regions which in turn are divided into sub-regions (particular geographic features or sites of interest, such as woods or dungeons).

The third continent, Northrend, is an icy continent in the north of Azeroth. Northrend featured in the Warcraft III expansion “the Frozen Throne”, and will feature in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, the second expansion pack to World of Warcraft.


The Alliance is one of the major factions in the Warcraft universe.

In World of Warcraft the playable races of the Alliance include Humans of Stormwind, Dwarves of Ironforge, Gnomes of Gnomeregan, and Night Elves of Teldrassil. The Draenei of Exodar became members of the Alliance in the first expansion, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade.


The Horde were originally just Orcs but in the World of Warcraft have also formed a loose alliance with the Forsaken, a group of Undead who had broken free of the Lich King’s control (king of the undead dude!). Although mutual trust does not exist between these newcomers and the older Horde races, the magical power of the Forsaken has been a great aid to the Horde. Elsewhere, the Blood Elves, remnants of the High Elves of Quel’Thalas, had been cast out of the Alliance and seek passage to Outland. They joined the Horde after retaking their beloved Eversong Forest and their capital city of Silvermoon.

There are also many smaller powers in the horde, such as some goblins who operate their zeppelins, the stonemaul ogres led by Mok’morokk, the Mok’nathal (half ogres), the forest trolls of the Revantusk tribe led by Primal Torntusk, the uncorrupted orcs called Mag’har who are led by Garrosh Hellscream, the half orcs, as well as the pandaren brewmaster Chen Stormstout.

A wary truce was established between the Horde and the Alliance when they fought the invasion of the Burning Legion in Warcraft III. This truce still exists in World of Warcraft. Currently, both the Horde and the Alliance are at war with the Scourge.


So that’s ‘Team A’ rounded up… next post will be on ‘Team B’ which is Everquest/Everquest2 and that will be another eye opener.

I hope this post has been a little more in depth as i did get a few messages saying that the first post was a little bland. 😛

Anyway i’ll leave you all with a funny/awesome vid i found!!!!!!

Alliance FTW

Horde = Grabage All the low lvl PVP matches are full of twinks on the horde side.
They don’t do anything but play wow. They would be garbage if they weren’t fully equiped with twink armor.

P.S.- the fact that im killing lvl 39 horde in Arathi basin with my 32 palli means Horde is TRASH!
