The Night Elves didn't really have a split on the level of TFT's Undead Civil War.
Well except that it wasn't really a civil war, or at least not just a civil war: it was a rebellion. You are clearly playing as the Scourge when you play melee: the Forsaken don't have acolytes, crypt fiends, necromancers, frost wyrms, liches, crypt lords, death knights and so forth. No-one who played undead gave a shit about Sylvanas, we were all for the Lich King!

The Forsaken is to the undead what Alterac is to the humans. Or perhaps it's more like the Syndicate.
