A faction of World of Warcraft. Made up of the player races orcs, trolls, tauren, undead and now blood elves.
They are generally fanatical, crazy and have no lives. During conventions such as Blizzcon the players scream out insanely to support the Horde, showing how mentally far gone they are.

Horde are a pretty barbaric lame faction, so what the Blizzard team keeps doing is taking stuff from the Alliance and putting it with the Horde.
Examples include:

-Khadgar, the Alliance's heroic archmage who nearly sacrificed his life to destroy the Horde. Now he's neutral and Horde friendly.

-Blood Elves; Quel'thalas (the blood elf homeland) has traditionally been Alliance and friendly to humanity for thousands of years in the story. The humans saved the blood elves twice, from their hated enemies trolls. Now blood elves were given some weird, bad story and shoved into the Horde, and suddenly hate the Alliance. They say they were betrayed, but that isn't true. Their prince Kael was charged with treason in Warcraft 3, and now in World of Warcraft blood elf players fight Kael anyway. So this betrayal nonsense is bullshit.

-Dalaran, a member of the Alliance since Warcraft 2. Even in current pre-Wrath of the Lich King (expansion pack) Warcraft, Dalaran is Alliance. There are Horde quests to kill these Dalaran Magi, and they fight a war against the Forsaken. Since Horde are too lame as it is, in the expansion Dalaran will be made neutral to them.

-Paladins. All of a sudden the Holy Light is like jet fuel and blood elves are happy in the pants with it.

A lot more will likely be taken from the Alliance and thrown in with the smelly, animalistic Horde in the future, so stay tuned.

Horde can also be defined as gankers, people with no lives, losers, or just plain old farts.

A term used in the MMORPG World of Warcraft for a group of players that play Orcs, Undeads, Trolls and Taurens. these people are the counterparts to the Alliance in the game. While the alliance population is mostly made up by people who are around 12-14 year olds that usually are gankers, whiners, noobs, ninjas and perverts, the horde consists more of people of age 16 and up. The horde players are more well-behaving, friendlier and cooler than the alliance. Still, they are a minority compared to the alliance for strange reasons, but in PvP, it doesn't matter because horde still has an increased 20% chance of winning in the battlegrounds.
And the horde wins again!

The only faction worth playing on World of Warcraft. There is an alternative, the Alliance, but that is only suggested if you enjoy sexual relations with farm animals.
"Why not come over and join the horde?" - Horde Player

"No thanks, I'm too busy trying to score with this goat." - Alliance Player

1) Rampaging barbarians.
2) One of the two factions (the other being the Alliance) in World of Warcraft. Consists of three interesting tribal races, some annoyingly twee elves, and some creepy ghouls. Horde players are neither inherently more mature nor inherently more likely to gank. Commonly misjudged as the "evil" faction.
1) Watch out for the rampaging hordes of middle-schoolers.
2) No, the Horde are not "the bad guys." RTFM.

A large group of infected from the game Left 4 Dead. Also a way of telling somebody to shut up.
Go next door and tell them that their music's too loud. They'll attract the horde!

A large faction of old men and women, many of which seem to enjoy making fun of the young "whiper snappers" that reside on the Alliance faction in the MMORPG World Of Warcraft. Also see old fart, old, ganker, emo
