    Well they were mostly brutal and more "stupid" if you can say that because of the bloodlust and all the evil influence they had from the Burning Legion.

    Those Orcs back then in Warcraft and Warcraft II could perhaps match the Warhammer Orcs in brutality and strenght.

    No, they can't. Warhammer Orcs get stronger and bigger the logner they live after after each fight.

    Their kind of like Saiyans lol

    Wait a sec. I thought Gul'dan is the first orc to be corrupted and Ner'zhul was just some kind of a victim in this vicious cycle? :confused: True Ner'zhul is the villain now, but if my memory is correct, Gul'dan is the dumb **** who started the whole corruption cycle... :yak:

    Wasn't Gul'dan a student of Ner'zhul's? From what I remember, Kil'Jaerden corrupted Ner'zhul and Gul'dan just followed suit.

    Well, yeah, Gul'dan is Ner'zhul's student. Just checked the WoW wiki and it seems that Ner'zhul got duped by Kil'jaeden and Gul'dan followed suit. So I guess tur's right on this one. But Gul'dan is arguably the greater evil 'cuz he knew what was going on and betrayed Ner'zhul when he tried to back off, resulting in his fall and also Gul'dan's status elevation as well. As I've said, Ner'zhul is a victim of this cycle and it showed in the form of the advice he gave to his fellow orcs not to follow Gul'dan, who by that time has officially became the villain that would condemn the orcs to insanity. Only Durotar and the Frost Wolves Clan heed Ner'zhul's words and that resulted in that particular group being saved from the Horde's eventual drinking of Mannaroth's blood as was planned by both Kil'jaeden and Gul'dan. Ironically, one of the greatest villains in WC actually gifted the orcs an indirect chance of redemption since Thrall was Durotar's son. For more info, check this out:

    I would say that the WC lore is a fairly rich, but complicated one. You'll have to max out your brainpower to understand all the details and how they link with each other. Not to mention that WoW actually made the issue even more complicated. I think that's the reason why met said WoW ****ed the WC canon big time altho I disagreed with that.

    I was trying to imagine how it would be if the Humans made a Penitent Engine in WOW...lol!

    And who would win in a fight between a Warhammer Orc boss and a Warcraft Orc general.

    The Warhammer Orc Boss.

    Penitent Engine's are technology of the 41st millenium. I'm not really seeing how WoW Humans can make one.

    That's the point!That was what I was imagining.How would a Warcraft Human penitent engine look like.And in the end I thought it would probably look a bit like the goblin tree shredders or how they call them :p

    Lol, no contest, each warhammer ork is born able to assemble and wield a weapon. They massively outnumber WC orks, and WC orks don't get to ride boars, WH orks are the killing machine orks should be, WC orks are all about peace and the earth etc. also WC orks have the power of the WAAAAAGH! WH 40k orks also have Gazkhull... no one beats Gazkhull.

    What about Fel Orcs?

    They could be a good match against Warhammer Orks.

    So let's see the two enemies:

    Warcraft Orcs ride wolves,they have shamans,they use catapults and siege engines.They fight fiercely when it comes to a battle and they ally themselves with the Trolls,some Ogre clans,Blood Elves and the Forsaken for the Horde.

    Warhammer Orks ride boars,they have shamans,they use catapults and siege engines.They live to fight and form warbands or big armies.They ally themselves with the Chaos,Dark Elves and Skaven on occasion.
