The battle lines have been drawn, hats thrown into the ring and a royal rumble of Horde politics have begun! With a record number of five candidates running for the coveted position of Warchief this fall, each camp has been rushing to win over voters hearts and minds. Ironically, the only camp we haven’t seen much movement coming from is the Basic Campfire camp, which is making us all wonder if inanimate objects have a harder time making decisions quickly. However, despite the mad grab for voters attention, one group has proven to be a clear winner to be the first to put out a campaign ad. That would be the Hellscream camp offering us this poster:
A powerful statement to be sure and one that has caused a wave of debate across the streets of Orgrimmar. While some have stated that this is simply more of the war mongering mentality that we have seen from Garrosh Hellscream in the past, others are seeing this as a completely valid point. A member of the Kor’kron Guard had this to say, “I fought along side the warchief and a group of heroes in the Battle for the Undercity. After that human king tried to attack us, Warchief Thrall seemed heartbroken. Over the fact that the Alliance didn’t like us! I honestly can’t remember the last time the Alliance DID like us. I appreciate what the Warchief has done for us, but I don’t want a leader that gets weepy eyed when it turns out that someone doesn’t like us. How would that mentality have worked against the Silithids?”
This orc is not alone in his belief that a change may be needed in order for the Horde to survive. However, the support backing Warchief Thrall is still outnumbering Garrosh supporters by a great deal, and also the onset of voter apathy has begun to set in. Wandering the streets of Orgrimmar you’ll find orcs that if asked their opinions on the election will simply stare at you for a second and ask, “Something need doing?” Perhaps if Garrosh can win the hearts of these apathetic peons he’ll stand a chance against the current poll leaders: Incumbent Thrall and Basic Campfire.
