    I'm pretty easy going and would probably play either faction, but I do favor the Horde a bit more than the Alliance.

    Knowing the personalities of the GB crew, I'd say Horde.

    The race with rifles would be my best bet. Unless both factions have firearms in which case I'll choose the one with chainsaws on their guns.

    I don't play WoW, and probably never will, but might I suggest if there are enough people, have two communities.  One for Horde, and one for Alliance, both filled with Giant Bomb users, and have Giant Bomb Horde vs Alliance events.  Just throwing that out there.

    I'm gonna level my level 80 Ret Paladin (Alliance) but I might also create a Goblin since they look like a lot of fun.

    @gakon5: Yeah, it would definitely be cool to have an Alliance and a Horde group, but I sincerely doubt we'll have enough players to support two separate guilds.

    I'd roll Goblin or Worgen, but I'd say I like werewolves more. 
     
     
    But still, I'm probably not going to resubscribe to WoW anyways, so...yeah.

    Either or, I've plenty of experience with both sides, though come Cata I'll be making a Worgen regardless.

    84 votes and it's exactly 50/50. Incredible, especially since the Alliance outnumber the Horde by a crazy amount, last time I checked, anyway.

    Alliance. All of my mains so far have been Horde, so I'm tired of playing them. I'm curious to see what Alliance is like.

    One server type is no more serious than another. It just depends what you're into.  
     
    As for ganking being fun, I have a little anecdote on that. As I was leveling my character over the course of a couple of years (I took several long "breaks" from the game) I must have been ganked hundreds of times. (In fact getting harassed so often was what caused me to take such long "breaks") It was utterly infuriating! And then when I finally hit 80 earlier in the year, the first thing that came to my mind was, "God damn it! I'm going to take a little trip down to Southshore and get some payback!" Well, I did just that. I murdered every player, NPC, and animal foolish enough to hang around Southshore that day. Once my slaughter had come to an end, and my thirst for Alliance blood had been slaked, I felt completely unsatisfied. There was no challenge in it, it wasn't even fun. "How can anyone possibly enjoy this?", I thought. I know I didn't. And after that day I never ganked again. The end.

    Horde.  Unfortunately, most Horde players in WoW choose to be Blood Elves because they have self-image issues and want to be pretty or brooding or some shit.  Blood elves? Not in my Horde! Warcraft 1 & 2, never forget.

    @gakon5: You know, I've been thinking that maybe we should just count the votes of people that posted in thread because I bet a good 90% of the votes in the poll are from people who just wanted to vote but had zero intention of actually joining our potential guild.

    Alliance because Worgen looks BA to me...but if its with a bunch of Giant Bombers I suppose a Tauren Pally would be sweet...are we doing this after Cataclysm comes out?  That's what I am guessing, unless I missed something.  Need to go buy WotLK regardless...
     
    Also, you want a server with at least 10,000 players according to Warcraft Realms...one with a decently even distribution of H:A.

"
    I agree, about the ratio thing.  Also, IMO, RP servers attract more mature players.  What is your guild's purpose?  Just a social guild or do you have long term goals?  Leveling guild, raiding, social, PVP, so on.   Will there be officers to enforce and encourage the guild rules?  Will there be any rules or is this just a hang out and talk sort of thing? 
     
    If you guys are trying to set up a serious Giant Bomb guild.  I would be interested.  Been playing for 5 years and I don't really want to just hang out in guild chat.  Looking for more of a end game type thing.   Start from scratch and work together to defeat endgame. 
     
    As for the server type.  Remember that there is a dungeon matchmaking system now. So even on PvP realms you don't have to quest in contested zones, if you don't want to.  Just travel to the instance's quest hub, and q up.  Play a healer or tank and get into groups instantly.
     
    Anyway, sounds cool.  If your interested in me.  I am interested in started from the bottom.  No power leveling or like bullshit.   I would be willing to play a tank or caster DPS.  Into multi instance runs for gear and leveling.  Will craft mains and subs all the way.  Not willing to wait for others to level, thoe.  I play a lot.
     
    What ever choices you guys make with this guild.  Have fun!  
     
    Its awesome that so many bombers have suddenly become more open about WoW here.

    Just thought I'd point out there's no cap on number of players in a guild, just how many it shows in the tab. Also pick a realm with somewhere between a .3 and .7 advantage for our faction.
    EDIT: Also I vote for horde.
