But why is the Alliance fighting them?

Blackone, here displaying the sort of sage and carefully-plotted reasoning of the average horde player.

The Alliance isn't fighting them. The Horde D-Bags were attacking the Alliance and the Goblins got caught in the crossfire. More likely a Horde ship blew them out of the water, considering the Alliance has things like TRAINING THEIR SOLDIERS... And the first people they met were the orcs, so they allied with the Horde.

Because the WoW writers aren't very good at their jobs.

actually, it is likely that the alliance was in this case attacking the horde, as the single horde ship will probably have had Thrall on it (probably trying to broker emergency diplomacy that Varian will spit upon). The goblins then accidentally rescue Thrall from the alliance and, voila! A new horde race.

More like the Alliance fleet of ships decided to ambush the lone Horde ship, sensing an easy victory. The Goblins were probably just passing through, and then the Alliance ships saw it, and decided to also attack it too. Taking into account that the ruler of the humans is Wrynn, it really isn't hard to believe.

And theres a chance the hordes new leader is Garrosh. Yeah ill take the man who has a reason to hate someone over the man who hates someone just to have someone to hate.

Why couldn't Saurfang be the new Warchief? I'd swear allegiance to him.

I agree there anyone but Garrosh

I'm sure blizzard will explain this in some quests in the goblin starting zone.

My greatest disappointment is that as a Tauren, I get to see a warmongering fool murder the Grand Chief of my tribe, and I still have to stay loyal to the moron. It's almost enough to make me roll a Worgen. Except that would just be trading one psychopathic idiot for another. And at least Garrosh has better hair than the wannabe-Saiyan king of StormwindPlus I'd leave before I side with gnomes.Hopefully, Garrosh will be eaten/driven mad by Deathwing or just overthrown by the thinking-man's Horde.

@GrothMy thoughts exactly... My only hope if Garrosh is made Warchief and they don't immediately have a quest to kick him out is to reroll Draenei, the overall morally "Good-est" (as opposed to best) race and just ignore Varian until they fix the Horde.Or I might just quit. Save a couple bucks.

Im a allience loyal but i respect the new horde and thrall i a lot i like his speak softly and carry a big stick style. Im afraid Garrosh is going to send the horde back to the old horde style of just killing anything that gets in your way. Lore wise i could see the tauren leaving the horde if something like this happened. Garrosh would probably strong arm them to keep them in (ie kill Cairne leader and put someone who fits his ideals in place).
