Pandaren style neutral, pick a faction.
One race to each faction, just like belf/goblin and draenei/worgen
No more new races!
Neutral or faction aligned based on what makes more sense for the race
Other (write in explanation in thread with OTHER in bold at the top to let people see)
I'm an Other. I'd like 1 & 4.
No new races. There's enough already.
But I'd like to be able to choose to align any race with either faction. There's "evil" versions of just about every race in the game so what makes sense for every race is for them to choose their own allegiances.
More like EQ's factions where you could always decide to start slaughtering your own faction's members (or otherwise act against them) until your rep is high enough to start questing for the other side.
Few demon classes as a new third side, not that i would play it, but it would be an interesting turn of things. And I suppose many people would welcome an evil side:-) Downside of this would be that those haters who hates everything would be yelling wtfomgwtfblizzyounoobsyoucopyagainpokemozandnowelderscrolls!
If two pandaren meet in a faction battle, though, they're more likely to treat it as the ultimate contest of skill between themselves; Tushui and Huojin pandaren have something of a friendly rivalry running through the Wandering Isle experience, and it's not generally implied that the rift between Aysa and Ji is indicative of the two schools of thought as a whole.
Blizzards could easily push a Pandaren Civil War if they so chose, and would be a powerful story point for them to do so. There's no real use in setting up a sort of "neutral faction" (even moreso to create multiple ones,) to act as mediators if the goal of Warcraft is to keep the fires of war burning between the Horde and Alliance. Said "neutral factions" either fall by the wayside, or, more recently, are killed or go insane.
