Spend much time in Elwynn Forest and you’ll get accustomed to the low-level human characters /yelling about how much Alliance sux.

I don’t know if this is a new thing or if I just haven’t been around to witness it before, but the thing I’ve been seeing a lot of lately is huge crowds of people in the chat channels complaining about how the server is dead and no one is ever on. Indeed, it seems that the surest way to encourage more activity on your server is to declare that no one is on your server any more.

Okay, I don’t like making comics that you have to read the accompanying text in order to understand (Penny Arcade can get away with that, but I’m no Penny Arcade– not even in the dreams I have inside my dreams am I at their level of awesome), but I’m afraid this one needs a little explanation.
So, we all know that Alliance and Horde can’t talk to each other, but why not? Wowwiki.com has this explanation:
In the Beta, the undead player characters spoke Common (besides Orcish) and thus could communicate with Alliance characters. This led to a huge amount of vitriol and bile that was spewed both ways, so this functionality was removed and Gutterspeak was introduced. (From Gutterspeak.)
Seriously, Blizzard? Seriously? Vitriol and bile? Have you heard of trade chat? Popped into Dalaran lately? If vitriol and bile are a reason to cut off communication options, you’d better just remove chat from the game altogether.
Communication between Horde and Alliance is now limited to /yells of “A N A L N I G G A!!“, which I think we can all agree is so much more respectful and polite than the alternative.
