Warlord's Deathwheel: Horde Availability

Hello Everyone, This is more of a reach out for help as well to gather some support for a very invested missive from myself and other Horde players regarding the beloved, Warlord's Deathwheel. As we all know, The Warlord's Deathwheel was the winning Chopper in the Azeroth Choppers competition in 2014 and as a result of winning the Horde players got their mount at the time, the Alliance received nothing. End of story right? No. The Alliance eventually received their beloved mount as well, as a purchasable mount for 100k Gold in Old Town, Stormwind, making it ubiquitously available for all Alliance players, before or after competition. Now enter's me, a general noob to Warcraft. I am enjoying this game and I leveled a Orc Warrior, even part of a fantastic guild and prepared for Legion in the coming month of this post. Here is my gripe, as a Orc Warrior I would love this mount, and I understand I wasn't around for the promotion so therefore I am not entitled to it, that is a argument that I would respect and understand having played many mmo's before wow and having quite the collection of goodies on Star Wars The Old Republic. What I am advocating for is fairness because it is abundantly clear that the mount in question is available, per say, for the Alliance Dogs (No offense love you guys) and The Horde Champions can't obtain the mount currently. Couldn't the Horde have a Goblin vendor in the slums of Orgrimmar that could sell it for 100k Gold, I know myself and many others would be interested. At that interval the contest results would be: Horde players at the time of the competition: Get free mounts: Anyone who loss: can buy theirs respectively for 100k gold. I really Like the idea of the mount being available for Horde champions like it is for the heroes of the Alliance. Does anyone Agree? Disagree? I would like a discussion about this but I am hopeful if there is enough Horde champions like myself, the Dev's may see this post and see that Blood and Thunder and also be accompanied by the sound of Metal gears of a "Goblin Lawnmower"

I'm still confused as to how the Horde "won", when the bike is no longer available, whereas the Alliance one is. What's the problem with making the Horde one avaliable again for 100k?

There are a few unfortunate legal obligations that have halted a release of the Horde's Deathwheel, from what I understand. Something about <insert legal jargon about prizing>.

Again, an unfortunate circumstance, but I'm not sure that anything can be done.

I'll bring this up again next week and see if anything has changed since I last asked about this a few months back.
