    This will never happen because not being able to communicate cross faction is hard baked into the game the same way that your 16 slot original bag can't be replaced.

    I would like it, I think the circlejerk to WARcraft holds back parts of the story.

    Because when I play my blood elf paladin purely because I don't want to be a human, dwarf or space goat, I'm automatically an enemy of everyone on my real ID/battletag list? okay... the War, up until Cata and heavily in MOP had nothing to do with the Alliance and Horde. It was war against Black Dragons/Old Gods/Scourge, Illidan/Legion, Scourge/Old Gods, and Deathwing/Twilight's Hammer/Old Gods. Even in MoP there are major campaigns against the Sha, the Zandalari and the Mogu.

    If that's all such a feature in it'd let a lot of players choose a race they want and play with their friends, rather than be pigeonholed into a race "available".

    cept real ID and battletag friends can communicate cross-faction just fine... should also say when everyone was scourged during the zombie world event, both sides could communicate.

    yes, this would be epic. Alliance guilds trolling the few horde members, and vice versa.

    I'm not against this, I'd even support it, but 5.4 is the wrong time to add it. After the Siege of Orgrimmar is over, and IF peace is made between the two factions, then yes.

    The whole 'what about the War in Warcraft' thing is a joke though. There a lot more to World of Warcraft than the Alliance vs Horde open warfare. The cold war type uneasiness they had in the earlier expansions I enjoyed a lot more than what we have now. But that's just my two cents... either way, it's hardly what puts the War in Warcraft. It's only part of it... and there would still be conflict.

    Blizzard can change both. This is, with all due respect, a terrible argument. Anything is possible, though some things are harder to implement than others.

    Why would there be abuse?

    Do you abuse others because they're dwarves or draenei when they're on the same faction? What would the difference be with running with an orc in your alliance dungeon group, lol?

    People are childish and horrid. In the closed vanilla beta, Undead could indeed commune with the Alliance, this was however remonces because it was used to cause major issues, mistet just trash talking and other unpleasantries.

    Not really, the alliance and horde are working together.

    If this is the feature, Blizzard is going to get a ton of shit, because even though they haven't been hyping it up like crazy, they've certain done so more than just "errbody can group with errbody."

    My money is on scaled content.

    Nothing is really stopping the restrictions...private servers on wrath of the lich king and catclysm have cross faction queues/groups and those are only mediocre coders/programmers. i've worked with these people as a private server GM

    they'd have to remove the language restrictions between races and probably edit some coding to allow people to queue with eachother or invite them

    I wish they did more cross faction stuff, don't people get just about the same amount of flak in LFR for example? Or bad LFGs? I actualy wish belves and draenei went neutral. Most of the people would stay neutral while the ones that felt strongly for their faction would choose a side, including an updated Quel'thalas/Draenei zones for each. Belves and Helves should make up at the end and reunite, it would especially help when Alleria comes back next expac. Either way, I wouldn't mind this.

    Instead of Server Firsts, change it to Guild Firsts. The sorry excuse for not having the tech is ridiculous, Blizz makes millions month to month. I'm sure they already have advanced tech to make this happen. Its a matter when to start implementing it. They're already almost there, If you can make Cross Realm raiding(old content), don't see how they cant do Cross Realm Raiding on current content and/or Cross Realm guilds.

    Though I could see, same server faction raiding. But not cross realm. But, still wouldn't solve issues of dying servers. That would slightly improve it, not completely.
    Also, side note, they are removing Battlegroups for PVP. So, Cross Realm Guilds, is more likely to happen.
    I support this. I don't think that Cross Realm Factions would help the game in any positive way. I think things are better as they are, in terms of the fact that the two sides don't really communicate and are a mystery to each other. I find it odd that Blizzard allow you to Inspect an enemy player's gear (originally you couldn't). I think it's better to have neutral lines of communication, i.e. factions/channels that both sides can freely use, like the Steamwheedle Cartel. I also think Blizzard should look at making the neutral Auction Houses more attractive and Cross Realm; I think this would help out the the servers with the weaker faction AHs.

    What might be interesting is to add a third playable faction, perhaps Earthen Ring or even the Steamwheedle Cartel, which any race can join. I think the game also needs another "war effort", like the one used to open the gates of Ahn'Qiraj.

    I also think that cross-realm guilds are long overdue. However, I think Blizzard will have to be very careful how they implement this. I think a first cut should restrict them to Battlegroup; this would give Blizzard a chance to move all of the dead/dying/low-pop servers into a common Battlegroup and use that as a testing ground to see how CR guilds perform.

    This would definitely reduce wait times in LFR/LFD which could be a great thing and im sure the banter would be fun

    Lorewise it would suck but hey at the end of the day you just wanna kill the boss and get lewts not worry that your orc is helping out a human

    im not against this gameplay wise and im sure i could live with the lore ramifications

    This would only happen if they implemented a illusion type buff like they do with Horde Characters in Blood in the Snow.
    Whatever faction the party leader is will be the faction for the group

    Race illusions could go like this (Just like in the character creation screen):
    Human = Orc
    Dwarf = Undead
    Night Elf = Tauren
    Gnome = Troll
    Draenei = Blood Elf
    Worgen = Goblin
    And Panderens stay the same.
    You make me smile with my heart.

    I guess it would be... interesting. But I really doubt it's going to happen. Same thing with scaled content which was mentioned here a couple of times. Not going to happen. They'd had to rework pretty much all the bosses, or at least all the vanilla ones due to myriad of bullshit mechanics. Remember Shazzrah from Moltencore? If you were warrior, all you could do was train your bow/gun/throwing skill on the boss.

    Blizzard might aswell as make new bosses on the old places... and be blamed for rehashing.

    I'm going to agree here, if it is cross faction dungeoneering, it will draw more 'wtfs' than it would praise. As it's seemingly absurdly easy to facilitate, as well as it doesn't really fit anywhere else except a few particular lore specific situations.

    My money is also on scaled content, or some form of instanced housing. If anything, I'm thinking it will be a shot across the bow at one of Wildstar's upcoming features.
