Is so sad having to read all these nonsense hate between factions. Some people just play what they enjoy the most, not what they think/know is best. I really don't think that racials are the problem, I'd say that is probably that, in a fantasy world like World of Warcraft, horde races are more appealing than all human-like races in the Alliance side, speacially when the in-game models are bigger and gear looks cooler on them.That's the way it is, but that doesn't mean we, as a community, can hope for the best for EVERY player; casual or not, pver or pvper, horde or alliance. I really look forward for a solution, because all the alternatives that have been discuss doesn't affect by any mean the Alliance. And if you still don't want this problem to be fixed just because you have this stupid in-game racism mindset, you should really consider seeking for professional help.
Instead of a Merc Mode, they could let horde teams fight other horde teams in BGs. That'd be a very Horde thing to do. If the pop balance changes they could change it to whichever faction has more queued up starts fighting their own faction.
This article is ridiculous, this is not a problem at all. Horde gets OP racials but has longer queues because of them. How could anyone say that this is unfair?
