    Only bacteria and stuff reproduce via mitosis only. Humans and Orcs aren't so simple :S

    Orcs in other settings are stupid and/or evil. In Warcraft, they are strong, wise, honourable warriors.

    Fair.

    I think the Warcraft Orcs are becoming "softer" but more strategic and organized.

    Thrall becomes warchief during WCIII. The tutorial starts out with him being quite solitary - though he has been fighting with Grom Hellscream.
    Thrall sort of takes up leadership, as they travel to Kalimdor, where he starts his own nation (Durotar), after the Battle of Hyjal, ofc.

    But no one can claim Zug-Zug and Swo-Boo should be regarded as intellectual conversation....

    Lol Thrall actually took up the Orc leadersship prior to WC3 if I remember correctly. Remember the war with Blackmoore where Thrall has already assumed total leadership? That's before WC3. The whole Thrall saga is basically more of a prelude to WC3 leading to the Orcs' redemption more than any other thing else. Go read the Lord of the Clans trilogy. That's a WC novel series considered canon by the WC canon gods. In fact, like Forgotten Realms, WC novels are pretty much considered canon. :)

    Well, more like semi-leadership. He was the guy who freed them, so it seemed like he took leadership, but there were still other Orc Chiefs, just like him.

    Well, if I remember correctly, yeah, Thrall was the one who freed his people and there were other orc chiefs like Grom and Orgrim. But officially, Thrall became the warchief after Orgrim died. At least that's what I remembered altho, there could be the possibility of Orgrim playing second fiddle to Thrall like Grom. :S

    And before Warcraft 1, if you follow the history of Azeroth and Draenor.
